The team at High Street’s The BetterField are a rare blend of friendly Singaporean service bods and culinary whizz kids with an eye for bold flavour, smart ingredient pairings and beautiful presentation. There are light bites and proper dinner courses aplenty here, all served in a dining space that is relaxed, chic and above all else, welcoming. Diners are invited to visit this part of Singapore’s City Hall for smart food, great service and an evening well spent.
Place was pleasant, food was better than average. Would return for the meats
We visited when the place was less crowded hence the service was more attentive. Food was alright, could be better.
Mediocre food and average service. Nothing to shout about. Place was pretty empty on Christmas Eve.
The ambience at The BetterField, in Singapore’s City Hall district on High Street, changes depending on when you drop by. Head over in the early afternoon and you’ll find some of High Street’s best coffee and pastries being served to on-the-go types and a handful of intellectual sorts sipping a steaming mug of tea. Head over in the evening though, and you’ll see the kitchen come into its own: smart dinner dishes with a particular attention to duck. Duck, it seems, is the kitchen’s forte, meaning that whether you’re looking for a light duck sandwich or some seared, on-the-bone main course, The BetterField’s menu offers something really special.
For those accustomed to Singapore’s hyper-agile dining scene, The BetterField, with its menu riddled with luxury ingredients, might look to be much of a muchness with other City Hall restaurants. But pay closer attention and it’s clear that the markers of distinction at this Waterloo Street eatery are subtler. Find bread baked on-site, fresh pastries and coffee, as well as cooked-to-perfection steaks, risottos, and of course, duck. It’s the details that set The BetterField apart, and you’re invited to join them in the week from 11am-3pm for lunch and from 11am right through to 10pm Saturday and 8pm Sundays.
