New menu is excellent! Great service and kid friendly! The Bistro du Vin makeover has really revitalised this old favourite and the new chef has brought a new energy to the menu.
Food was excellent, especially the pork chop and beef cheek. Mash potatoes as a side was so smooth. Wait staff was very attentive. There's a few more private 2 seater for more romantic atmosphere but in general, the setting is cosy. The tables are packed quite close together for some areas.
Great service from all staff, good menu choice and great food. Would strongly recommend anyone looking for authentic French flavours with a very reasonable price point.
Good food and service. Desert is delicious. It's great that they have kids menu. Only negative is that the food (soup and main course) tend to be on the salty side.
It was the first time my wife and I visited Bistro du Vin @ Shaw Centre. We were very impressed with the quality of food (we had the Escargots, French Onion Soup, Duck Confit, Braised Beef Cheeks and Crème Burlee), the cosy ambience and excellent service (the staff was there when you need them and give you the necessary privacy). Will definitely visit again.
Excellent service and compliments to the chef. The french onion soup is the best my family has had, even better than any we've had in france! We ordered the Le Porc Iberique, beef cheek and lamb shank which were all delectable. The potatoes that accompanied the lamb shank were cooked to perfection - creamy and tasty. The young waiter who attended to us was polite & gave brilliant recommendations. We tried the egg soufflé & truffle velout which was light and delicious, upon his suggestion. While we were very full, we made room for the dessert soufflé which is not to be missed. Be prepared to wait 20mins, but we assure you that it's well worth it. This restaurant is a gem, and we look forward to returning for our next family gathering.
My hubby and I hosted dinner at Bistro du Vin with another couple friend and it was their first visit to Bistro du Vin. They love the food, ambiance and everything about the homey and quaint looking restaurant. The standard and quality of the food has remained consistently good over the years, with good value for money. Just slightly disappointed that my favourite dish, the beef cheek was no available. Overall excellent experience, highly recommended. Les Amis' high standard never disappoint. However, sometime it might be exciting to tantalize the palette of good old customers with a couple of new dishes as I believe the menu has remained unchanged for a long time. Do remember to make reservation in order not to be turned away on a weekend night though.
It is hard to find a French restaurant in Singapore which has the good combination of great food, service, atmosphere, at reasonable price - but I am glad to say Bistro du Vin is one of them! I ordered 75++SG$ Chef's "Omakase" 3 course menu, shared with my friend. This turned out to be an excellent 6 shared course - starting from 2 appetizers (White Asparagus in season, and Sardine on Pie), 2 main (Lobster Risotto and Grilled Pork) and 2 Dessert (Apple Tart and Crème Brulee), and Coffee! All very tasty. The executive Chef Laurent was friendly. I will definitely come back.
Not my first visit and prior to this, I have always had a great time at BDV. We had the very affordable set lunch. Started off great with foie gras and home smoked salmon salad. Both were great and the salad was very refreshing. However, my chicken basquise main was really lacking in terms of flavour and the cook time. The chicken was overcooked and dry and they gave chicken breast. I am a huge fan of chicken breast but I felt that it was really too dry to the point that I could not eat it. The beef bourguignon had great flavour but, again, the beef pieces could do with more cook time. We ended off with a creme brulee. I would return, but I do hope that this experience was due to the fact that they just reopened. Hopefully, they iron out all the inconsistencies soon. (:
The pan seared scallops were delightful! The escargot was a little bit of a let down, as it was a little bitter somehow. The iberico pork shoulder was divine! Soo good! No wonder there were so many positive reviews about it online! Beef cheek was pretty yums. And desserttttt, the apple tart was soooo good. The pastry was perfection! The souffle was a little meh coz the grand marnier could only be tasted at the base and it got too much at the end.. but overall the ambience was really nice and service was delightful :)
Location of the bistro is nestled in the quiet part of the busy Orchard area, which is very nice. Ambience is very welcoming and relaxing. Food size is generous but a bit letdown on the presentation. Nonetheless, food tastes yummy. Fois gras raviolli simply melts in your mouth. Beef brisket very tender. Duck confit though tastes like the chicken they serve in Jollibee (I like it anyway). Mashed potato on both mains are super tasty and just melts in the mouth as well. Dessert is nice but too creamy (at least for me and hubby). Price is value for money. Overall, will recommend Bistro Du Vin to friends. We might also come back to taste other foods on the menu.
I love French Provincial food and Bistro du Vin gives you that touch which is better than the Bistros in Paris. Great atmosphere and service. I had the Christmas menu and the quail parcel was exquisite. The herb crusted venison was done to perfection and was v tender and full of flavour. Also want to commend Philippe Pau who came around and spoke to the guests. Use him more!! What a great guy he is.
The food in the restaurant was alright. I think it is too expensive for the quality. We're in love with the atmosphere when we first stepped in but as the night becomes later, the whole restaurant became unbearable noisy that we couldn't even hold a small conversation without getting interrupted. The service from the waitress wasn't the best. The waitress doesn't even smile when serving and seems like they are really fast in clearing our plates when we are finished. It gave us the feeling that they want us to get out of the restaurant as fast as we could. It is also a bit uncomfortable that they kept looking at us we are eating. They should improve on their service. Overall, I think I will go back to the restaurant if I am nearby but not specifically go to the restaurant with a reservation.
Great food and a super worth it lunch set. While most recommended their creme brulee, I'll recommend their blanc manger instead which I thought was a tad better for those with not that sweet a tooth. Service was explicitly welcoming; most of their waiters sported straight faces but I liked how they replaced the baguettes when they saw that it was nearly empty and how the waiter remembered our orders and served them directly to each of us without asking again for which dish is whose.
A classic French bistro that serves up quite possibly the best charcuterie and French onion soup in Singapore. The foie grah terrine is amazing and the pan seared foie grah is heart stopping (in a good way and bad). Would totally recommend this place for anyone who's longing for that authentic French Flavour and not the questionably localised French food that we usually get.
I always enjoy dining at Bistro du Vin @ Shaw Centre. Great food, great ambiance, and consistently great service. The only thing I could do with is more space. It feels a bit cramped when it's busy.
Delicious and traditional French food. Had the mussels and duck confit. Duck was tender and skin was crispy. Would have liked a bit more jus on the side but it was delicious. The mash potato with leek was a discovery! Beautiful. I like how authentic and minimalistic they are. Wonderful and attentive service from the French manager too. Amazing Grand Marnier Soufflé! Fluffy and exquisite. My friend and I had a wonderful dining experience.
My wife and I had dinner here on our anniversary. We had for starters the escargot on bone marrow, for mains a lamb shank, and poulet, and for dessert a souffle. Very pleased with the quality of food, which I would expect no less considering the price. The french cafe ambience was also charming, and the staff were attentive.
Seamless experience from booking to dining to payment. Special thanks to the young male bistro du vin waiter (we saw that he could toss the empty glass water bottles like a bartender!) who served us for being very prompt, attentive and customer-friendly in allowing us to takeaway one of the desserts as we were too full to stomach it.
Service staff were very good even though the bistro was full house. While waiting for my lunch companion, the Malay waitress took the initiative to serve me complimentary warm bread and water. We left the bistro at around 3.15pm, perhaps way past the service staff working hours. However, all the service staff was very patient and professional. When we left, there were possibly around 8-10 more patrons at the bistro.
Great food, space, and service. So good to see Philippe back in his element, and Chef Laurent doesn't disappoint in the kitchen! My only quibble is that the staff were not as knowledgeable about the cheeses as I would have liked, but that was remedied when the chef came by to speak with us. Will be back soon!
The second time here in a month as the first visit impressed me with their steak, tuna steak and creme brulee. The second visit disappointed a little on the tuna as it was overcooked, almost cooked through. :( Beef steak was not as good as i remembered from first visit but was certainly still satisfying. Had positive reviews around the table for the appetizers and desserts. Will be back.
Good food and ambience - only that the christmas ornament reeking of a rancid floral smell. The servers were attentive to us and allow a seamless transition between each course. Fantastic job on the server. Nonetheless, the tender, robust flavour and flagrance are still the catch for the Bistro. Definitely will go for the rustic cuisine again.
My 2nd time here in 2 weeks and have enjoyed it both times. Highly recommend the French Onion Soup, Pan seared scallops, foie gras, stuffed trotter with chicken mousse, grilled iberico pork collar and the grand marnier souffle. Service staff were also friendly and attentive. Overall experience was very good. Spent about $75 per head without alcohol.
it is my 2nd time at bistro du vin and the lunch sets have changed a bit. the beef bourguignon is the star of the meal with its tender beef and huge servings. the service is great compared to the last time i was there. hopefully there would be more choices of desserts in their lunch sets.
We celebrated my husband's birthday with our 5 months old son, and we had a great time. The food was good, the staff friendly and helpful. I have pre-empted them that it was my husband's birthday, and the dessert came with a candle and a birthday wish. The environment was a bit noisy though, so if you are looking for a quiet ambience, this is not the place!
Great ambiance in a cosy bistro. Staff was friendly and helpful. More importantly, we had 2 young children among us and they had a kids' menu. Food came promptly for the kids and once the young ones were satiated, the adults had fun enjoying the multiple offerings. Servings were adequate and flavourful. Worth another visit as we were too full to try any of the desserts.
I visited Bistro Du Vin on 30 December 2016 for dinner. I ordered pork, my husband ordered Duck Confit, Pan seared scallop for the appertizer, Lava Chocolate, Grand Marnier souffle for the dessert. We love the food we ordered. The ambience is nice and excellent service. Definitely will come back to this restaurant again.
Atmosphere was good, portions were of decent size, and service was ok (a busy Friday evening). Food quality was generally fine save for the pork chop special. It was somewhat bland, despite the presence of onions. It seemed a waste of a good cut of pork - a little disappointing. Not as good a meal as I have had on previous occasions. Prices appear to have also increased slightly. On the whole, it was a satisfactory meal, and I'll be back.
It is as good as I last remembered. The Foie Gras were done to perfection and the beef cheeks were tender. It was amazing. Plus, "you can't go wrong with French wine." - that's what people usually say isn't it? The wine there is good and affordable. Definitely a bonus.
Excellent food as usual - must-tries - French onion soup, duck confit, steak frites, truffle mash and creme brulee.. Unfortunately, the foie gras and Hokkaido scallops were a tad overcooked today, and one of the service staff's tone was rather curt when asked to serve the birthday cake which was meant to be a surprise. Nevertheless, a lovely dinner overall.
Good food and friendly service. We asked a couple of questions on how the food was done and the waiter was very patient when he explained it to us and went on to recommend a couple of dishes. We ordered our food on his recommendations and the food was indeed very good. Thank you! We will certainly return again.
Went there to celebrate my daughter's birthday. Good food served especially love the foie gras, scallops and lamb shank. The duck confit was okay but I find it a bit salty. A complimentary dessert was served to the bday girl which she really enjoyed. Love the atmosphere but a little noisy. Service was good. Will go back there soon
Food was good, as expected. The French onion soup was yummy and a generous portion and the duck was a little tough inside but the skin was wonderfully crispy. Pity there was no simple fruits for dessert as we could not eat any more for lunch. Reasonable prices and convivial atmosphere for lunch with colleagues, most enjoyable, thank you!
Great meal as usual. But the standout is the polite and efficient service in a crowded week before Xmas with every table packed. Attention to detail like refilling water glasses of regular water show they are also not just in it to take most from the customer. Full marks!
Excellent service, food was very good. Camembert and bacon starter was excellent, and lamb main dish was expertly cooked. Another diner had the ribeye and was quite undercooked for 'medium' - came out nicely seared but cold and raw on the inside. They were happy to cook further, however, so it turned out nice. Would eat here again.
We were there for lunch. The food was superb with large portions to boot, making it worth every cent. We had the french onion soup(5*), foie gras ravioli(5*), cod fish with ratatouille(4*), red drum(5*) and pork collar(5*). The desserts were all good too. Definitely recommend it for lunch.
Excellent French bistro food at very reasonable (lunchtime) prices. The foie gras ravioli is superb, as is the perfectly cooked duck confit and creme brulee. Service efficient and attentive without being obtrusive. Always a pleasure dining by ourselves or as we were today with our two young daughters.
Brought my grandparents here for my grandfather's birthday - lunch promotion at $35 for the basic set was well worth it, although after my grandparents' expensive additions, the meal cost ~$160 for the three of us haha. Food was great and very generously portioned - would advise sharing two sets among three people if they allow that.
Good food. The french onion soup was flavourful and rich. The marrow could do with a bit more colour (roasted) but was otherwise acceptable. The braised beef was falling apart as it should be and the potato smash/puree was smooth and creamy. The creme brûlée was silky and rich. Excellent meal with good and attentive service.
Food was delicious and service was quick but impatient. As my partner was late, they served me bread even when I said no when asked while waiting. The bread was left on the table to turn cold and there were flies in the restaurant which made it an even worse idea of serving up the bread.
Cosy restaurant great for date nights and also intimate gatherings. Was there with three other friends and we agree that the food (even the bread) was fantastic. We will recommend the onion soup (love the cheese in it), beef cheek (great flavour) and cod fish dishes.
Never a boring moment at Bistro Du Vin -- the freshness and culinary mastery of the dishes served here will leave you craving for more! Too bad our stomachs weren't stretchy enough or else we would have ordered even more to excite our tastebuds!
Dined with my family of 4. Servers were extremely hospitable and obliging. Ordered the lamb shank and Iberico pork. Waiting time was quite reasonable and food was delicious. Had the soufflé which was a bit too strong on alcohol but texture was spot on.
Attentive derive with a typical French bistro menu. Moet of our meals were spot on and I especially recommend the beef cheeks but did not rate the Iberian Pork. It was very tough, like it had been boiled, but it clearly hadn't as the spices on it were nice - - just the meat was tough and chewy. Overall, however, a goo 'go to' local.
The bistro is relatively busy even on a weekday evening. We had the usual french classics like escargots (a little too bland), pan seared foie gras (nicely done), duck confit (delicious) and lamb shanks (just ok). We also had the classic french desserts like the Gand Marnier Souffle which is really good! Ambience is ok but can get rather noisy and staff is quite attentive.
my group of 3 had the set lunch and it was really good value. the food was superb n the salmon trout with peas was fabulous. the foi gras ravioli was fantastic n u can mopped up the sauce with the bread given.
Lunch sets are value for money. Rustic French food (nothing fancy or out of the ordinary), big portions for the price and good food. Ordered mushroom soup, duck confit and chocolate tart (all good) while my partner ordered duck rillet, grilled chicken and apple pie (good but apple pie is ordinary).
Quality food and great taste! It is advisable to make reservation in advance. Very cosy restaurant. We ordered beef cheek and duck confit. Beef cheek was really tender. However, personally I feel the duck confit was a little oily. Just personal preference.
Friendly and attentive staff. One of the staff remembers that my mom ordered warm water and he made sure he kept refiling it with warm water throughout our dinner. Food was awesome and the Warm Chocolate oohhh la la! Not too sweet, it was the right texture and taste.
