At the age of 16, Chef Gunther Hubrechsen began his professional culinary training at the Bruges Culinary Institute Voor Voeding (IVV), Ter Groene Poorte in Belgium.

As an advocate of 'natural cuisine', his unique style of cooking quickly push him up the ranks in renowned restaurants such as L'Arpège in Paris, where he worked under the mentorship of Chef Alain Passard, from Commis to Sous Chef de Cuisine within five years including 2 years under the Sous Chef position.

In 2002, Chef Gunther arrived in Singapore for a stint with one of the renowned restaurant group before opening Gunther's Restaurant on 2 August 2007.

Getting the delicate nuances and flavours of the French cuisine right is no ordinary feat and Chef Gunther has managed to do so. The food at Gunther’s is refined and will leave you coming back for more, even if it is to try something else on the menu. We recommend going for their warm angel hair pasta with sakura ebi, rib steak flambéed with cognac with black pepper sauce and pomme gaufrettes, warm souffle or floating island of chocolate on coffee flavoured parfait.

This place is outstanding. Delicious food and wine. What more do you want. Chef is highly experienced and you'd be missing out fir not coming here to try his food.

The cold angel hair pasta is a must have. Outstanding value for money set lunch at $38++. Now they offered set lunch with wine for $54++. That's extra $16++ for a glass of wine. Reasonable considering Lawry's just charged $22++ for a glass recently. The wine is good for me. tasted fruity, slightly sweet, slightly tannic.

I do ordered off the menu, e.g. uni, scallops but the prices for these will cause your bill to go skywards. Still, be prepared to be surprised on the preparation if you indeed do order off menu.

Now, if only they also offer the complimentary canales and coffee for ala-carte menu. Now, it only comes with the set lunch. The coffee is strong and fragrant, I like it with milk and no sugar.
