Arteastiq is making headway in Singapore with its pioneering blend of tea house culture, international cuisine, and art jam concept. Already established in Orchard, Arteastiq now has a second site further east down Orchard Road, at Plaza Singapura in Dhoby Ghaut. This all adds up to guests having even more options when it comes to taking in one of the most distinctive restaurant concepts in the city. Arteastiq Bistro & Bar has a lot of room in its stylish new space, but with the brand always attracting a lot of custom, we strongly recommend a reservation.
Dear diners, please note the following two sittings for reservations on weekends and public holidays:
Session 1: 1pm
Session 2: 3:30pm
These sittings are exclusively for the luscious seafood high tea (from $98++) only. Both sittings last 2 hours. The team will confirm reservations within 24 hours of booking. Thank you!
Black, white, and gold accents characterise the decor at Arteastiq’s new outlet at Plaza Singapura, at the Dhoby Ghaut station end of Orchard Road, maintaining the chain’s reputation for impeccable taste. This sense of style extends to the inspired menu, vast range of boutique teas, and unique art jam concept. Here, Singapore’s diners, always on the lookout for something new and exciting, can enjoy the fantastic international cuisine on offer, then retire to the adjacent art jam studio for a little sociable creative expression. Indeed, Arteastiq is above all dedicated to the shared experience of fine food, delicate drink, and the power of art.
The menu at Arteastiq’s new Bistro & Bar premises is typical of the brand. Refined, international dishes divided creatively along unusual lines. Entrees and sides are listed under the heading The Lighter Sides of Love, and include the Scandinavian-Asian fusion dish the creative chefs like to call the Nordic Lights Soba Salad, a melange of greens, smoked salmon, soba noodles, cherry tomatoes and an Asian vinaigrette. Dividing main courses according to gender, a highlight from the list of Ladies Affairs is the Summer in Provence, a cocotte of seared foie gras and baked eggs with a demi-glace sauce, country bread and greens. Heartier, red-blooded males will turn to the Gentlemans Dinner selection for sustenance, wading forth into generous portions of the Viking’s Prime chicken Frikandel with potato rosti or The French Connection, NZ Black Angus striploin with sweet potato fries and a poached egg with Bernaise. From Orchard to Dhoby Ghaut, Arteastiq stands as an ambitious role model for Singapore’s other teahouse-restaurants.

Awesome place for a nice quiet lunch/afternoon tea. Food was delicious and so was the tea. Loved the small biscuits served with the tea :)
Staff were attentive, ambience was great and we didn’t have to wait long as compared to my last visit here. I’ll definitely be back again!
Had the afternoon tea with a friend. Setting was quiet and beautiful. Good place for a date or chat with a friend. Would go again.
We liked the appetizer with foi gras (panini morsi). A generous amount of foi gras. For the main course, the Boston Love boat was interesting in terms of the tomato-based soup. However, the pastry covering was a bit too 'doughy' - not as flaky as what used to be served in the now defunct Country Manna restaurant. The other main dish, salted egg yolk capellini (Symphony from the East) was an interesting fusion dish, with thai basil. The salted egg cream was just right, not too overwhelming, but with salted egg to feel satisfying. Finally, the dessert we chose, the professional, despite the fanciful name, was basically a tiramisu. Pleasant, and sufficient moist - though sadly not with alcohol. Overall a pleasant meal, esp with a coupon which entitled us to 20% discount. The only slight flaw in the experience was that the waitress who did our bill told us after the dinner the discount did not cover the set - when we were told explicitly by another waiter that it did. However, this was settled and the discount was given. (The coupon explicitly stated dinner set)
The ambience at Dhoby Ghaut outlet was nice. We ordered the set menu which is of small bits and come with a pot of tea. Set meal value wise not impressive though the way the food was arranged was impressive. The service staff was attentive. It was however disappointing the online reservation I made via Quandoo could not be found. I'd called earlier to find the location as the website address did not indicate which floor the restaurant was at. The service staff then informed me there was no record of my online reservation but nevertheless she took my request and reserved a corner seat for 4 as requested. Quandoo needs to improve & communicate the online reservation to Arteastiq.
Good quality food with some artistic feel. Ambience at the Plaza Singapura branch is quiet and cosy. Seated by the window but it would be good if the management could consider a night curtain to block direct sunlight. Feels hot during the afternoon sun. Overall service is good but they forgotten to replenish their moscato so i got the Seafood High Tea Set for 2 with 1 wine and 1 moscato. I would like to highlight one area whereby one of the staff served our drinks with a disposal gloves. Not sure if she is handling some trash and it is not hygenic. Overall my money is worth spending !
Ordered the Burrata and while it was decent, I've definitely tasted better. This Burrata was more creamy than cheesy, and I didn't really like how Lavender oil was drizzled over the cucumber. It didn't go with the cheese at all and kinda felt like I was eating aromatherapy LOL. The Pear Tea was great as usual, with just the right balance of flavours, but the Nasi Lemak biscuits that came with it were NASTY. Anchovies DO NOT go in cookies!! Luckily, the staff were nice enough to give us a change of biscuits and we had the lemon one instead which was much more pleasing to the tastebuds. Overall, the service was good and the food was so-so. Think I'll be sticking to just the sweet treats (like afternoon tea) and the various teas here, the mains are nothing spectacular.
The food was great but unfortunately, the service was slightly frustrating. The place was not crowded but it could be that the preparation of the intricate tea takes up a lot of time of the waitresses and so they don't have time to service the customers at the tables. They were too busy preparing the tea to take our orders, explain how the brunch set meal works and to serve the dessert at the end. It was very hard to understand how the brunch set meal works. And the waitresses were all too busy to explain in detail to us. So it was a trial and error experience for us as the wrong orders were taken as a result as they misunderstood what we want and we misunderstood how the set meal works.
Nice ambience and decor. Nice view if you get window seats but you get the sun's rays in your eyes when it's sunny outside - probably should consider installing roller blinds. Portions very small for the tea-sets-good for tete-a-tete, not if you're hungry. The fruit teas were delicious though and service was great! Ended up ordering extra sides and total bill came up to a sizeable amount - similar or probably more expensive than high tea at some hotels in town, which offer unlimited refills.
