For fine French dining with a relaxed atmosphere in Singapore, look no further than Grignoter by Chef Justin Quek in Chinatown. We recommend starting things off with the Japanese Yellowtail Carpaccio, served with fresh grated fennel and lemon vinaigrette. The French duck foie gras confit served on melba toast is also out of this world. For mains at Grignoter by Chef Justin Quek, you simply have to order the Blanquette de Veau-braised veal with white truffle cream sauce or the charcoal grill Steak Frites for a truly French culinary experience. Then, if you have any room for dessert you can go one of two ways – order the cheese board to share, or go full greedy guts with the JQ Floating Island served with caramelised crispy rice, raspberry coulis, praline and vanilla sauce all to yourself! Grignoter by Chef Justin Quek’s concise menu manages to incorporate all that you would want in a French wine bar. And while, Singapore’s Chinatown is a hub of activity, this serene oasis of calm on Teck Lim Road will soon become your new favourite spot!
The restaurant was small and unpretentious hence good for a casual or business meal. The food was by no means casual. Foei gras was a sizeable portion - larger than most other places would offer. Set lunch @ $32.++ was a good deal and the food was of a high standard and aesthetically presented.
Great food as always. It was a bit busy as they were training staff for the new restaurant at MBS. The sambal prawn capellini is heavenly.
The food was fantastic and the service, impeccable! I have found a wonderful place for my French food fix. Definitely will be back. Thanks Chef!
Excellent lunch menu and wine selection. Prices are very reasonable. The Touché system that used for payment is also an absolute marvel. No more cards or paper just your fingers 👍🏻
The restaurant is nicely fitted out. The cooking is very much in the style of Chef Justin and was truly fine dining. The service was brilliant. I did not pay but I saw the price tag and I would not call it cheap. I would have expected to pay that for Chef Justin's restaurant. The restaurant was rather empty the day I went and that was surprising.
Food fine but a bit expensive as portion is quite small. Service is attentive and good but to request for additional tip on top of the 10% service charge can be considered a bit stretch...
had a lot of expectation before i enter the restaurant but was to a certain extend disappointed . Service by the main waitress was luke warm , not much of help in getting us to understand the food serve in the restaurant . overall ambience acceptable . love the lamb steak and wine .
Restaurant seems to be at full capacity but service standard did not fail. Eric and colleague took care of my group well. Dinner was pretty good too.
Really enjoyable appetisers and desserts. Highly recommend the fluffy egg caviar, scallops and the chocolate and mint soufflé. Cote de boeuf was value for money and alright.
Food was great, dishes all look good and set lunch was value for money. Only gripe was it took a while for food to arrive.
