For all the cuisines that Singapore has to offer, French food is something that will never go out of style. Whether it’s gourmet cheese, charcuterie, pastries, or hearty mains such as duck confit and beef bourguignon (beef braised in red wine), there’s a wide array of options to cater to every epicurean. Such offerings are easily available here too, as our local gastronomic scene features an abundance of fine dining restaurants, bistros and casual cafés serving up their renditions of French fare. A number of these places even boast Michelin stars, so you know they won’t disappoint.
If that’s not enough for foodies besotted with the City of Lights, there are patisseries and dessert salons the likes of Antoinette, Angelina (which is a local outpost of the eponymously named Parisian tearoom) and Lady M rolling out French-inspired cakes and confections. A handful of eateries have also popped up with something a little more unconventional: French food inflected with Japanese influences. Examples include fusion restaurant Lewin Terrace, and one-Michelin-starred Beni — which marries Japanese produce with French fine dining.
Evidently, we’re all rather spoilt for choice here. If you’re jonesing for a delectable Gallic meal but can’t decide where to go, here’s a guide to 7 of the best French restaurants in Singapore. Bon appétit.
