An outpost of the famed Parisian cafe, Angelina on Stamford Street’s Capitol Galleria, over the road from City Hall station, brings a slice of old-world glamour – not to mention a few slices of cake – to Singapore. They deal in the finer things in life: fine tea service, pastries and breakfasts in the morning, graduating to a full restaurant experience with the finest in French cuisine in the evening.
The original Angelina cafe, back in Paris, was founded in 1903 by the Austrian confectioner, Antoine Rumpelmayer. Their reputation was built on their Belle Epoque interior decor and furnishings, their refined atmosphere and clientele, and their superb French food, which drew in gourmets from all over the city. Their outpost in Singapore is no less elegant, and their location in the Capitol Galleria on Stamford Street, close to City Hall, is no less central to the daily life of the city. Take yourself down for sophisticated afternoon tea.
They open early at Angelina, allowing those with a busy day in front of them to enjoy a tea and a breakfast before their activities begin. The office workers and executives that populate the Downtown Core of Singapore possess high standards and appreciate the finer things in life, and their expectations are exceeded at Angelina cafe. The menu is filled with French favourites in the evenings as well, so those arriving later need not miss out. Find Angelina in the Capitol Galleria, a short hop over the road from City Hall
I tried Angelina's famous signature Old-Fashioned Hot Chocolate “L'Africain” and it was damn good. I thought I couldn't finish the whole serving of L'Africain cos it is so thick and rich. But it's really smooth and taste awesomely great and I did finish the whole cup. It's extraordinary. The cafe and it's ambience is almost Parisian and I can feel and able to make some writing stuff. Yes, I must visit again and you must have as well if you haven't yet and be try L'Africain no matter what. Cheers!
Love the fab pastries and delightful brews of tea selection
Great ambience and pastries are nice! the hot chocolate is a bit lacking: it is overcooked and a bit lumpy. Otherwise still quite ok and acceptable. Cannot be compared to Paris.
The environment is great. We could enjoy sunshine in an air conditioned environment. This place is great for talk with friends. We must return for this great environment.
Sorry to say that I will not be going back to Angelina. Food was average. Service was not very good, especially considering that only 2 other tables were occupied. When ordering, we were told that Angelina no longer accepts Entertainer vouchers since end of December (it's February and they are still featured in the online App!). We decided to still give it a try, but we ended up paying more than 100$ for just main course and a glass of wine for two, that's not worth it.
brought a girl there for dinner, it was our first date. Chicken and fish we ordered, the food was just great. We chatted for hours with our latte in hand. Thanks Angelina for helping us to be more than just friends! :)
I had the Mont-Blanc Praline and I can tell you it was worth every cent! The outer layer compliments the whole thing perfectly. I also ordered the Old Fashioned Hot Chocolate – L’Africain and although I can't give you a non biased review on it, what I can say is if you're not an avid chocolate lover, it might not be for you but who knows!
Food and service is good but nothing really special. I had better seat reservation experience from other French restaurants. I requested for a very nice table during reservation on line since it was our 10th wedding anniv and yet they asked me to choose... never really took effort to recommend a table. I really appreciate the gesture by giving us a gift for the said occasion but the gift item was very forgettable (pack of biscuits). I would still eat here since food is ok but not on special occasion. I'm just a little bit disappointed since my request are really not that complicated.
Food was tasty but they came in Parisian-sized portions. We dived into the mains (and only the mains) -pan-fried scallops atop black venere rice (served with a frothy shellfish cream) and sea bass fillet with seasonal greens. Service wasn't exceptional and overall, Angelina did not change my perception of French food. Next!
The food that was provided by Angelina was really good. The risotto are exceptionally good. The staff and their service are excellent as well. Good place for a romantic date
