Dishing up elegant French haute cuisine without the fuss, Perle Noire are a refreshing presence on the Bedok restaurant scene. It’s a quiet, cosy venue on Upper East Coast Road, and space is very limited. Be sure to book early so you can look forward to a memorable meal of oysters, foie gras, steak, seafood and so much more. Perle Noire offer a high level of dining at a much more reasonable rate than similar French restaurants in Singapore, and it’s hard to be anything other than impressed and satisfied when you eat here – Perle Noire can accommodate groups, so it’s ideal for special occasion dinners and social gatherings.
Perle Noire on Upper East Coast Road may well change the way you think of French fine-dining clichés in Singapore. First of all, this is not a stuffy, prim and proper dining hall where you have to worry about whether you’re using the right cutlery or not – nobody will judge you here, because Perle Noire is a quiet, cosy and unpretentious Bedok restaurant that has a casual feel about it and is great for social gatherings, special occasions or family dinners. Perle Noire is also an example of how French fine dining can also be affordable dining, with reasonable prices and generous portions.
Still, we shouldn’t really be talking about the decor and prices of this Bedok French favourite when there is so much delicious food to talk about. Perle Noire is best known around Singapore for their seafood – an impressive selection of Canadian, New Zealand, Australian and Fines de Claire natural live oysters and a 500g baked lobster mornay are particular highlights. There is a lot more to delve into here on Upper East Coast Road, though, so why not try Perle Noire’s pan-fried foie gras with apple chutney, escargots bourguignon with macadamia pesto, herb-crusted rack of New Zealand lamb, duck confit with truffle fries, hand-made cakes, traditional pastas or vibrant, healthy salads?
Food was great and service was very attentive. The ambience was great for cosy meals and even business meetings. I arranged for a business meal there and found it very conducive.
Excellent service, good food and nice setting of the restaurant! Definitely a good place for any kind of celebrations! Special thanks to the waiter for being so attentive the whole evening!
Food was awesome. Service speed can be improved. But for a good food, I don't mind waiting for it. Price wise, it's a bit on a higher side but not unaffordable.
Nice Cosy place with real good food! The oysters were really fresh, pastas were nicely cooked and the lamb racks were superb!! Portion were alittle small though, enough for just one not for sharing.
If you are looking for affordable set lunch for western food, this is a place for you. The service is still good. But If you are looking for a French Bistro, you will be disappointed. We were having dinner here and ordering from Ala Carte menu. I am hoping to taste French or European Food, not Asian cuisine. They tried to be creative or fusion with Asian flavor on their Western menu, but the cooking is more local experience than French or even European type of cuisine. Eg. The Duck Confit is paired with berry jam (very starchy), the cube potatoes are oily fried with Shiitake Mushroom. My friend ordered Herbs Rack of Lamb, meat is good but no sauce, just served with some mash potatoes which is supposed to be with truffle, but tasted instant. The breads which were baked to serve, is like sweet round milky bun. Maybe my expectation for French Bistro is too much for Singapore. So I asked what is their popular dishes being ordered, the staff recommended Prawns Aglio Olio Linguine or I can try Beef Tom Yum Linguine. If you are looking for pasta dish with Asia touch, I guess this is a place for you.
Had the beef tenderloin. Pretty good - like that its grass-fed. It's grain-fed beef in most restaurants. The seafood capellini is excellent as usual - my fave pasta, considering that I take pasta only if it is really good. (Am minimizing intake of gluten stuff.)
We went there on a Monday afternoon. The escargots, lobster mornay pasta and pork chop (pork rack) were good value for money. The pork chop was tender and tastefully done. Our service staff, Yasmin, was friendly and knowledgeable.
Good service. Food was good. We like the seafood capellini. Light but flavorful. Price is reasonable and there's private parking. Would recommend for quiet, cosy dinner.
The set dinner is quite good for the price. Service is attentive and efficient. The location is next to Udders, can hop over for ice cream.
Good dining experience. Would have been even better if we could change one of the side dishes in the main.
