A fresh new face in Singapore’s dining scene, Le Bistrot de l'Olive serves up a dazzling array of bistro-style French and Mediterranean food that’s also 100% certified halal. Located in the V Hotel Bencoolen in Bugis, Le Bistrot de l'Olive is ideally placed for inner-city breakfasts, brunches, and lunches. While French dishes are writ large, you can expect a variety of Mediterranean flavours to tempt you from the regularly changed a la carte menu – Greek, Lebanese, and Italian in particular.
Soupes, salades, entrees, and plats du jour. These are the first things you see on the menu when you take a seat at Singapore’s Le Bistrot de l'Olive, a new French and Mediterranean bistro in the V Hotel Bencoolen, amidst the action in arty Bugis. Try the classic homemade onion soup or creme de champignons for starters, accompanied by an equally classic fresh French salad – or perhaps Lebanese hummus or tabbouleh if it’s your lucky Lebanese day.
Carnivores will get a kick from Le Bistrot de l'Olive’s special steaks – recettes de boeuf a la Francaise – premium and mouth-wateringly marbled Angus or Wagyu beef with buttered fried French beans, potato gratin and bordelaise sauce. Diners at this Singapore bistro down Bugis’ Bencoolen Street might also find a rotisserie chicken doing the rounds, and one would certainly be remiss if they left Le Bistrot de l'Olive without sampling the exquisite creme brulee for dessert.
The food was tasty and healthy. We enjoyed the pita bread, hummus and chicken kebabs. The service was good and the manager even gave us some Mediterranean chilli to bring home when he knew that we love it.
At first, i was hesitate because it is located at the corner of the Hotel, and the constructions makes it even more questioning your self. But do your self a favor, go in, order the Kebab, and you will find your self a Gem, a treasure. Sweet, salty, sour, all elements in the food are exploding in your mouth. You will love every single bite and chew you did. Many people just walk by and when they saw the location, unlike the trend of nowadays restaurant, makes them turned away. But please, this Restaurant is a must try, and trust me, you will not dissapointed. This place need more love
Unpretentious restaurant that serves really delicious Lebanese food (didn't try the French menu). Their saffron rice was aromatic and fluffy, while their lamb skewers were marinated and grilled to perfection.
Good value for money. Friendly staff and overall ambience was pleasing. We celebrated Mother's Day - family dinner. Difficult to find due to the construction in progress in the area.
Great food at good prices. I was pleasantly surprised by the various choices (mediterranean, french). Shame about all the construction work on all sides of the hotel, but the food made it worth the trip. Went with work colleagues and everyone was very happy.
Staff were friendly & food came fast. Not crowded. Food was nice. Chef and service staff were better this time as compared to my first visit about 2 months ago.
I had duck confit which was nice. Its cooked differently from other duck confit I have eaten in other restaurants. It contains figs, chestnut?, apple pie and the usual potatoes.
Food taste & quality just on average. Beef in the mix grill was very hard & chewy. Heavily over priced Vs similar restaurants/cuisine in town. Also very slow service Vs similar restaurants (Mediterranean) Will not go back there again.
good service. a different type of cuisine compared to the typical ones found in sg
