Visiting Singapore ?
Guided day trips are a nice and inexpensive way to explore this beautiful city

The owner of this little, excellent bistro had a vision: To serve classic chef-cuisine at an affordable price.  Occupying a small space along Middle Rd. (on the corner of Bencoolen), the restaurant does not have much in the way of décor and looks more like a neighborhood-café than a restaurant, but that doesn't matter 'cause most of the customers are dining 'alfresco' on the pavement (which makes more sense anyway) and the ambience is pleasant.


The food, however, is superb. The ever changing menu features a good selection of fabulous pastas, gourmet seafood dishes, meat dishes and what not, at a price that is just slightly higher than a food-court eatery... A true "no frills fine dinning".


Prices are very reasonable: Set-lunch starts at around SG$ 10, while a-la-carte dinner can cost around SG$ 15-25


Open daily for lunch and dinner (closed on Sunday) - Weekend evenings might be busy.
