Established in 1996, Mag’s Wine Kitchen has earned a reputation as one of Singapore’s premier destinations for superb wine and fabulous French cuisine. Found among the Boat Quay shop houses along Circular Road, Mag’s is all about simplicity. The menu is short and sweet, with hearty French classics making up the majority of the options on offer. Open every day of the week except for Sunday, Mag’s Wine Kitchen is a must-visit for fans of French bistro cuisine and fine wine. Don’t forget that if you’re bringing a big group of 15 to 20 diners or more, check the availability of the upstairs dining room when you book.
Featuring an expansive wine list with picks from across the French countryside, as well as some Italian, Australian, Californian and Spanish varietals, Mag’s Wine Kitchen on Circular Road is passionate about providing a large array of choices without ever sacrificing on quality. Prices range from low to high, but even the cheapest bottle is of a superlative standard. Led by Mag, a banker turned restaurateur, Mag’s in Singapore’s Boat Quay is a labour of love that supasses even the highest expectations.
Just as with the cuisine, Singapore’s Mag’s Wine Kitchen keeps the restaurant’s setting clean and simple. Elegantly furnished, the interior is sophisticated and suitable for a romantic evening out. Diners are treated to a number of starters and mains like the 180g Australian beef tenderloin, braised angus short rib, pan-seared sea bass fillet and butter poached Boston lobster among several French choices like foie gras terrine. Mag’s is committed to using seasonal ingredients whenever possible, so the menu changes often – check back in from time to time to see what’s new. This Boat Quay restaurant is on the smaller side, so reservations are a must!
Food was exceptional. Ate here on a Friday night - had the scallops and lamb shoulder plus dessert and wine. One of the best meals I’ve had in SG.
Excellent food, nice wine, good service. It is always a pleasure to have lunch at Mag's place. a place to recommend for lunch. Thank you
food was good as always great place for lunch or dinner or a quiet glass of wine in the evenings; good wine list thank you
Brilliant service, a little French bistro in the bustling heart of Singapore. A real find thx to my Aussie expat friends. Thx Rob and Mark
The beef tenderloin & lobster risotto were very tasty & cooked very nicely. My order of Medium for the beef was done to perfection. Not too bloody nor too overcooked. Just right. Oysters were very fresh & nicely garnished with just the right amount of herbs for a flavorful mouthful. Ambience was nothing to boot about though. Simple, empty & quiet, we were the only table there. Go for the food! Not for the ambience.
Excellent food chosen from a fixed-price menu: $65++ for three courses plus a bottle of a House red between two of us. Servings appear small, but were more than adequate. Service OK, but a bit overwhelmed by a large group booking. Certainly worth further visits, as the meals were well conceived and very tasty.
The food was top a shelf.. I had the burrata, sirloin (cooked SUPERBLY) and choc fondant (which was extremely yummy).. service was efficient and attentive and IMPORTANTLY not over whelming (which gets annoying). really enjoyed going back to MK... as it's been a few yrs... quality hasn't dropped at all .. well done MK staff.
Food is excellent. We have the Angus beef, lobster and lamb for the main. The meat is tender and juicy for the beef and lamb and all the dishes were excellently done. All the desert was excellent. Kudos to the cook and service staff.
We went for dinner on a quiet Monday evening. The staff was very attentive and friendly. We ordered a barramundi filet and a lobster risotto that were really good, and paired with a Puligny Montrachet that was good value. Definitely worth the visit.
After reading past reviews, I was kinda expecting a noisy dinner but it was a quiet night at Mag's. Overall the food and service were good, notably the Tain of blue swimmer crabmeat which was delicious! Pretty good value for money, no complains at all. I'll definitely go back there again.
