I had been meaning to try Les Amis for the longest time and the wife and I finally got down to it one sunny Saturday afternoon. Les Amis has been around for 20 years and is regarded as one of the pioneers of independent French fine dining in Singapore. It has also consistently appeared in various rankings as one of the top restaurants in Asia and the world (ie. 14th in Asia's 50 Best Restaurants by San Pellegrino in 2013 and 2014). Expectations were high, naturally.I like the high ceiling and chandelier but couldn't quite wrap my head around the two levels of seating (the 3 private rooms are on the mezzanine floor whilst the normal seating is on the ground floor. Maybe it's just me but I didn't get a very good vibe upon stepping in; The place just seemed a tad too stuffy for my liking.Complimentary Bread - A decent enough basket of bread to quell any growling pangs before the meal proper. This proved to be very useful later on.White Asparagus In "Blanc Mange", Oscietra Caviar - The white asparagus came in the form of a blancmange (flavoured dessert made from glutinous or starchy ingredients and milk), which came across as creamy and smooth with a distinctive asparagus taste amidst a mousse like texture. Topped with caviar for that salty slant and aesthetically surrounded by a ring of sour cream to cut through the fishiness of the caviar. Nice but too much of sour cream and blancmange together can be a tad nauseating. A very decent start nonetheless!Warm Lobster Encased Within Baby Spinach Accompanied By Classic Fish Bone Sauce - I couldn't quite make out the significance of the baby spinach leaf as the taste didn't quite feature but the warm lobster encased within was very good; crunchy with flavours accentuated by the creamy yet not too rich fish bone sauce. And finished off with salty fish roe. I liked this dish but found it tiny and a tad overly fishy.Angel Hair Pasta With Lobster, Crispy Sakura Ebi And A Touch Of Parmesan - First impressions, "god it's tiny!". Al dente angel hair pasta topped with small, crunchy lobster pieces, crisp sakura ebi that provided a nice crunch and chilli flakes for that mild fire; All simmered in a broth that had a beautiful crustacean flavour to it. Only gripes I had were that it was a tad too salty (and believe me, I have quite a high salt tolerance level) and that it tasted rather pedestrian, like a more refined version of 虾面 (prawn noodles).Hot Souffle Of Reine-Claude With A Refreshing Yoghurt Sorbert - The Reine-Claude (greengage) souffle was a tad soggy but relatively light. Served with a mildly sour yet sweet yoghurt sorbert. Pretty nice way to end off the meal.Petit Fours - Lemon madeleines and vanilla canelés. Not great, especially the canelés, which came across as bitter and hard on the outside. The lemon madeleines fared slightly better, sporting crisp edges and a mild lemony taste.Remember the basket of bread at the beginning of the meal and how I mentioned it was useful later on? Well, with the portion sizes, I definitely needed the bread to fill me up. And even so, I was left rather unsatisfied. Decently competent food but lacking the spark in my humble opinion. At almost $165 for a 2 pax lunch and with all its credentials, I was certainly expecting more; More creativity, more outstanding flavours. But sadly, both seemed to be a little lacking. Service was professional but reserved. So is Les Amis past its prime? Maybe...See all my pictures at http://www.timelessfacade.com/2015/02/les-amis-past-its-prime.html continue reading

I went back to Les Amis for lunch on 22.7.2014. The 4-course set lunch was excellent the last time i came on 1.4.2014. :-) & today again it did not disappoint. Wife ordered 1/2 bottle white pinot noir. It was good. The bread basket was good. baguette, brioche & sour dough were all good. The roll wife said not good. I did not try.#1 the crispy langoustine was excellent packed with meat tasted just like very tender lobster, & it was such a large helping.#2 the foie gras was kind of monstrous. & it was very good too. so was the smoked eel (super!) & cherries.#3 the 2 main course options were wild scottish salmon confit & tartare OR beef tartare. beef tartare is 1 of my favourites for appetiser. this one though was a main & it was quite tasty. this preparation had quite a bit of herb. it was very good but i would prefer to have less herb & a more dominant sweet tasting beef.the salmon confit & tartare was very good as well. a poached or baked salmon tends to be more chunky. this confit was medium rare & had a bit of the texture of cured salmon or sashimi. very nice. beef tartare came with a good french fries.#4 the dessert of the day was very good too. I really like the quality set lunch here, and it offered good value at S$45++pax, similarly to their sister outlet au jardin which had regrettably ceased operations.See my full reviews & photos at = http://chefquak.com/2014/07/22/simply-fabulous-4-course-set-lunch-les-amis-on-22jul2014/ continue reading

Went dinner with hubby at Les Amis, romantic and quiet restaurant with excellent service. I ordered the Lobster Pasta, angel hair spaghetti was cooked al dente, soaked up the amazing flavors from the light, lemon-garlic wine sauce. Tender and succulent lobster meat laid down nicely on the pasta. The rest of the gastronomic spread has fancy visual appeal but tasted palatable.Dessert, coconut infused sweet white chocolate joint with dark bitter chocolate was a wonderful piece.Served with a zesty and icy mango sherbet. continue reading

Les Amis serves up contemporary European cuisine. We had the amuse bouche which was very nicely presented. The egg custard was light and fluffy and the caviar very tasty. We then had the carpaccio of Spanish octopus which was seasoned with radish and horseradish. The Spanish octopus was excellent given its freshness. Another excellent dish was the free range Japanese Hen Egg Confit. The Iberian ham inside was simply out of this world. For desserts, we had the vodka granite that is a must-have given the explosion of flavours. We will certainly be back. continue reading

Les Amis does barbecue catering so we tried them out for a birthday celebration. The food quality was generally not bad, with most dishes being competently cooked. Favorite dish was the prawn and lobster salad which comprised fresh succulent pieces of seafood in a delicious dressing. However did not feel that the rest of the food was outstanding. There was also not a large variety of food offered. For the high price of about 200 dollars a person that we paid, did not feel that this was a value for money choice! However compliments go to the service staff who were attentive! continue reading
