When it comes to food and drink, French is always a mark of the highest quality. So, fortunately for the people of Singapore, wine bar and restaurants don’t get more French than O Batignolles in Club Street. Right on Gemmill Lane, this is an open-air concept wine bar with an impressive roster of the finest French wines that are complemented marvelously by imported cheeses and traditional French fare. It’s elegant, chic and French-owned – a true gem that’s absolutely worth a reservation.
Named after one of the trendiest districts in Paris that oozes a village-like appeal, O Batignolles in Club Street is a genuine French delight. Every wine at this nail-bitingly cool wine bar is sourced from one of a small batch of independent suppliers so you know it’s gone from vineyard to glass with nothing but love and attention. In fact, the team at O Batignolles visit their chosen French wineries three times a year to taste and choose the wine they plan to serve in Singapore – quite some dedication, we’re sure you’ll agree. On Gemmill Lane, O Batignolles is terrific before you’ve even got to the food…
There are a few different menus to choose from, the main ones being brunch, a set lunch and the a la carte. Sadly, to list the great things about all of them we’d need a page as long as Paris, but the a la carte consists of French-style tapas best enjoyed with a paired wine, as well as classics that most in Singapore will already know and love. The quiche Lorraine is a delight, as is the duck parmentier and the croque-monsieur. Should you fancy something a little lighter, O Batignolles of Club Street also offers vibrant salads, a long list of gourmet farm cheeses and a few simple yet delicious cold cuts.
Lovely wines and food was tasty too. Loved the open air concept.
I love their food and their drinks as well as their service provided. Good and beautiful ambience to dine in. Will definitely go back there soon.
This is my favourite place to visit for brunch. I love their food and service very much.
If you're looking for one of the best value for money French restaurants in sg, O Batignolles will be one of the few here. The wine is great, cheese is fresh and cuisine delicious. Service staff will throw in a nice surprise if you're celebrating a special occasion.
Very comparable to my actual experience dinner in France. I had scallops with roasted cauliflower cream. The scallops were very fresh and tasty with natural sweetness and nice texture. The cauliflower cream is subtle with nice smoke flavours. The service was attentive and non-obtrusive.
Nora was an excellent server and looked after our party of 5 very well. We had tapas and enjoyed every one of them, especially the salmon rillettes and croquettes. We'll be back for sure!
O'Batignolles never disappoints! Staff is excellent, food deliciously French and the rosé wine is a must! Outside seating if you can (and like) as it's good to people watch. A must do!
Nora is amazing and is always attentive to our requests. We were disappointed that the Savarin cheese was not available, but other than that - thanks for another enjoyable experience!
Service here is good, even when they are short handed. Freshly baked croissants, yummy french toasts, washed down by a superbly priced bottle of champagne. What more can one ask to kick start the weekend?
Yummy authentically French food. Value for money set lunch. Excellent wine list of very interesting and affordable French wines. The place exudes great Parisian bistro vibes. Just be prepared that the place is rather warm.
