I do like Leopold in Tanjong Pagar Road. It’s Austrian influenced as the owner is Austrian but he allows a touch of international. The guests are from all over the world and a great bunch of expats to meet. The bar restaurant attracts locals and expats so it has a good feel

No regrets trying Bar-Roque Grill out. Great service. I had the Wagyu hanger steak with an add on of Pan-fried foie gras. I have to say...it's a very generous portion of add-on. The steak was very nicely done in medium rare as requested. The special recommendation of the Beef Carpaccio by our service staff Kamal was simply lovely. Kudos to the Chef for the delectable menu selection. The yellow tail ceviche is also a must-try. Thank you for the great experience! Shared by Vee Vee who recommends Bar-Roque Grill on Facebook
