What do you think about Best French Restaurants in Singapore?

French Cuisine is perhaps one of the most technical cuisines to master. It is all about precision and takes years of theoretical and hands on training to be able to excel in French culinary arts.

It is interesting to note that a majority of Singapore’s entries in the Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list have one thing in common. They all serve French food. If you like to keep things classy, treat yourself to a meal at one of Singapore’s best French restaurants. Here are our favourites for you to pick from:

Odette

Odette

No.5 on the list of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants, Odette is now the highest rated restaurant in Singapore after Andre shut down in February this year. Chef Julien Royer left Jaan to set up this iconic restaurant in 2015. With two Michelin stars, Odette continues to wow diners from its sophisticated venue in Singapore National Gallery.  

Les Amis

French cuisine with tones of Asia is what awaits you at Les Amis. The kitchen marries Japanese produce with French techniques and serves up memorable fare. If you are in the mood to indulge, do try the tasting menu – small portions of the chef’s signature dishes like Caviar Kristal. No wonder it was awarded the 29th position in Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list 2018 and two stars by the Michelin Guide Singapore.  

Jaan

Stark interiors mark Jaan, their monotony only broken by the Murano glass chandelier that spans the entire ceiling and enviable views of the city that take your breath away. Jaan’s menu reflects a contemporary take on French cuisine, earning it the 44th spot on Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list. Standout dishes include Eggs in an Egg, a 55 degree egg with chorizo and the chef’s signature Maple-Cured Rainbow Trout.  

Gunther’s Modern French Cuisine

Gunthers

Located on swanky Purvis Street, Gunther’s is modeled around the personality of its owner who lent it his name. Head here for his angel hair pasta served with caviar, a classic reinvented for the modern palate. The revered restaurant constantly jostles with its sister-restaurant Garibaldi which is equally well known for delectable Italian food. 

GINETT RESTAURANT AND BAR

Ginett

Ginett Singapore is a hip and happening casual Restaurant & Wine Bar that serves a large selection of freshly cooked cafe style french food, tapas, cheese, cold cuts and exclusive French wines at affordable prices starting at $6 a glass. Ginett is open daily from 6 am to 12 Midnight. Serving breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner, it's also a place for you to enjoy a drink with friends before or after your meal. Helmed by Executive Chef French native, Hervé Frerard, Ginett is located on the first floor of Hotel G Singapore and features high ceilings, an open mezzanine with private working spaces, booths, and communal tables. It gets busy here so book in advance to secure a communal table, Great spot for large groups. Very lively atmosphere. 

Lerouy

Lerouy

Brought to you by renowned Chef Christophe Lerouy who previously helmed the kitchens of one-Michelin-starred Alma By Juan Amador, Lerouy delights guests with an industrial chic 26 counter-seat restaurant serving unique modern French Cuisine. An open kitchen showcasing end to end preparation is your entertainment, while the cuisine is purely Chef Lerouy’s creation and can be described as French fine dining articulated with Lerouy’s passionate interpretation of his most recent gastronomic adventures throughout Asia. Lerouy holds court as one of the leading restaurants in Stanley Street offering diners two omakase choices, the Petit ($38 for a three-course lunch, $98 for a five-course dinner) and the Grand ($55 for a five-course lunch, $128 for a seven-course dinner). 

Rhubarb Le Restaurant

The one Michelin starred Rhubarb is located in Tanjong Pagar’s trendy Duxton Hill. An intimate space with only seven tables and an open kitchen, the restaurant focuses on French classics sans any gimmicks. A thoughtfully compiled wine list accompanies the excellent food served with warmth by the service staff.  

Brasserie Les Saveurs

With bright interiors and floor to ceiling windows, Brasserie Les Saveurs does justice to its plush home within St.Regis Hotel. The one-page menu has classic French dishes which are executed with extraordinary skill. Order the the Whole Dover Sole Meunière and ask them to fillet the fish table-side. You can thank us later.

Fleur De Sel

The unpretentious Fleur De Sel is nestled within a shophouse on Tras Street. Chef Alexandre Lozachmeur who helms the kitchen, has worked alongside many great chefs including world-acclaimed chef, Alain Ducasse. A functional open kitchen and counter seating defy convention. The kitchen however, does not compromise on the quality of food that leaves the pass. Expect delicious and refined French classics and a carefully curated wine list.

I agree with your selection!!! You could add Lerouy on Stanley Street which is as well extremely good and has a great modern decoration. https://www.lerouy.com/home/ Cheers, Eric

Thanks Eric, we have had a number of suggestions to add Lerouy so we asked a few of our foodie fans to give feedback and the loved every moment of the experience. After investigation and by the show of people clicking on their Restaurant Profile since last night they have made it to the BEST OF FRENCH selection on www.expatchoice.asia
