Located in the gorgeous heritage Adonis Hotel along Purvis Street, between Beach Road and North Bridge Road in Bugis, this internationally-inspired restaurant is incredibly well connected. Connected to Singapore city and the central business district, and a heap of history; but also globally connected, with the influence of Europe and the Mediterranean writ large on Argo’s menu. Predominantly a pasta restaurant, there are plenty of flourishes that set Argo apart from the rest.
Small restaurant but nice food with reasonable prices. Easily missed as signboard is not easily noticed.
Food was nice and decently priced. The portions were a little bit small though. However, I must say that the service was exceptional. Attentive care and paid attention to our needs throughout. Definitely worth a shot!
Guests at the Adonis Hotel along Purvis Street and Bugis locals all know that one of the best ways to start the day (and what a day it’s going to be if you’re staying here in the heart of Singapore – there’s so much to see) is to head to the hotel’s restaurant, Argo, for a nourishing breakfast, packed with energy. Brunch, lunch, and late lunchtime refuellers should try the Argo green salad, which is no ordinary green salad. Organic greens, roasted pine nuts, cherry tomatoes and dried cranberries are drizzled with a Kozo enzyme dressing to unlock the ingredients’ secret reserves of ancient chi.
The heat getting to you or suffering from a summer cold? Or simply need some tasty hydration? Head to Argo for their Broccoli & Mushroom with Truffle oil soup. The main event at this Bugis international restaurant down Purvis Street is Argo’s selection of pasta dishes. Colourful and authentic, choose a type of extruded durum – penne or spaghetti – and then your style – all Italian, all the time: carbonara cremoso, al funghi, or all’Arrabbiata three ways (classic vegetarian, with chicken, or with shrimps). There’s a good few more besides, but hungrier guests will want to go for the organic beer-battered fish and chips or the rack of lamb. If you’re looking for pasta in Singapore, book a bowl at Argo.
