For a relaxed bite with a menu which is genuinely international, diners in Singapore know the answer is Eight Cafe & Bar. With a menu that offers the best of global dining and an attitude which says simply sit, eating out in Singapore is at its best in Eight Cafe & Bar. Nestled on Bukit Pasoh Road in Tanjong Pagar, diners are heading out to this relaxed eatery in droves for great food in a laidback ambience in the city.
Too often when a restaurant bills itself as international, savvy diners read unable to specialise and so does a bit of everything rather poorly, but Eight Cafe & Bar is the exception that proves the rule. In place of a mish-mash of poorly related dishes is Eight’s considered and coherent take on global food, curated without engaging the scattergun approach that undermines lesser international restaurants in Singapore. This is evidently popular with diners in Tanjong Pagar that are rewarding the Bukit Pasoh Road local with their custom.
The food, long the reason to trip out to Tanjong Pagar’s Bukit Pasoh Road, is a short menu of well-done favourites with a smattering of exotic ingredients from near and far. Eight Cafe & Bar is open from lunch service between 11:30am and 3pm Monday to Sunday. Dinner service is 6:30pm to 11pm Monday to Thursday and between 6:30pm and 1am Fridays and Saturdays. A reservation is a must, particularly over the weekend as Eight Cafe & Bar have a limited number of covers.
Excellent service. Food was value for money. Ambience was good and choice of food was many. Except the music as background can be better. The staff was attentive.
Good service with great atmosphere. The food especially the Har Cheong Fried Chicken is good. The Fried Oyster Mushroom was great too. Overall we had an wonderful time there.
They were very kind and friendly. The staff showed us their menu puctures and we could get to explaine about food of detail. It was perfect for us.
Delightful and personal service from the restaurant owner, Bill. Food is scrumptious, decor quintessentially artistic, and atmosphere warm with a homey feel. The wine was good. Celebrated my friend’s birthday and the restaurant owner made a special effort to provide a complimentary birthday dessert treat for my friend. Noticed a number of other patrons were celebrating birthdays too. Surely a favorite birthday celebration venue for many satisfied patrons. I’ll highly recommend the restaurant.
We enjoyed every single thing we tried on the menu. Table service was excellent and our group of 4 were spoiled for choice and shared plates from almost every part of the menu. The only downside was not having room for more desserts! We shared all our starters- warm spinach and other greens - and finished off with Eight's house red. For mains, we had duck confit, rendang rice set, brown rice risotto and laska pasta and then shared some of the desserts. We will definitely be going back and I can see why this place is steadily attracting a crowd. Book ahead so you don't miss out, and enjoy the good food and exceptional service!
The food is quite tasty and the cafe reno is lovely. We came on Saturday noon with friends. Bill recommended us the lunch sets and their all time favorite choc lava cake. I liked the Rendang chicken. Must try it. Bill was very a nice guy. He dropped by every table to talk to the guests. He even introduced us the coffee places and bars near by (even though we are in Singapore for more than 10 years). Will definitely come back. Great place for gathering with friends. Lunch set is quite a good value too!
The ambience of the restaurant was warm and comforting, staff are friendly. We tried all 6 main courses they had available and we especially enjoyed the Exotic Seafood Laksa Pasta and Spicy Baked Chicken Whole Leg. Definitely recommended for a group of friends to have dinner. Great place, great food, great service, nothing more to ask for.
Love the new dishes from this week's new menu! As usual food and service is good here! This is my 3rd/4th time dining over at Eight Cafe & Bar. Keep up the good work!
Perfect! Nice food and exceptional service. Very attentive to diners, we were happy with Cafe 8. Despite of long hours chit chatting, the staffs were not chasing us until we realize it was really late, we felt bad about it- yet they still threw friendly smiles on us. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone, certainly.
the steak was just nice as the outside is abit crispy and inside was raw but no blood. even though the aglio olio is not in the list, but the scallop aglio olio is up to the standard. just the wine mix with juice the taste abit weird. haha.. overall the service and food is good just the price is a bit too expensive for us..
