There’s plenty to get behind at Tanjong Pagar’s Napoleon. They are the undisputed kings of modern European wining and dining in Singapore, with a wine list trumpeting the virtues of 32 different European vintages. The wine sits comfortably alongside a menu that reads like a who’s-who of European classics. Diners at Telok Ayer Street’s finest European dining room are heading over for fine food and finer wines in chic surrounds.
Don’t forget Napoleon’s Rose Nights special, held every last Wednesday of the month from 7pm.
The team behind Telok Ayer Street’s Napoleon have a clear mission, they strive to deliver the highest-end combined culinary and cultural experiences to those that appreciate sharing wine, music and culinary arts and have been awarded for their efforts with a 2014 award as the best food and drinks business by the Singaporean government. In bringing together fine European food and wine, Napoleon has succeeded in creating a sophisticated and thoroughly grown-up dining space in Tanjong Pagar.
Finding chic, contemporary European cuisine can be something of a challenge in Singapore. Of course, there are plenty of places to get pizza, especially around Telok Ayer station, but finding a restaurant that specialises in modern European food done properly is a different matter entirely. Napoleon has addressed this, showcasing their avowedly contemporary European flavours from their Telok Ayer Street premises. The team, led by head chef James Lin, are rightly proud of their signature lamb shank parmentier, shrimp truffle cappellinis and slow-cooked chicken dishes which are responsible for their packed out dining room – be warned, a reservation is nearly essential to get a table here!
Great little restaurant, waiting on food takes a while but is worth it.
Excellent food and service. Really enjoyed the wine selection too. Greatly recommended.
The food is absolutely delicious, I had an excellent Beef Tartare that was perfectly seasoned. the selection of wines by the glass was also impressive: with over 30 different labels to chose from, i found the perfect match for my tartare. I loved also the apple crumble as a dessert! The service was also friendly and attentive,. overall a wonderful experience!
