Seriously the most surprising part is the food amount out of our expectation, especially the fries. And we do appreciate that. So, yes, the taste is nice. Soup is comforting, and worked well with fries Pork and Duck in main courses are tasty too.Marked in my small map now!

Founded in May 2011 by enterprising young chefs Dylan Ong and Joshua Khoo, Saveur had a simple premise; provide tasty yet affordable French food for the masses.

Ambience at Saveur is simple, clean, and functional, though not that comfortable. Dark wooden tables and plastic chairs line the small space in the flagship Purvis Street outlet, lit by bright fluorescent lights. There is minimal decor here, and the cramped space is made stuffy and humid as a result of the open kitchen, and a weak air-conditioning. Definitely not a place to linger over meals. The other newer outlets tend to fare slightly better in air-conditioning, at least it's not uncomfortable.

Service at Saveur is decent, with staff offering greetings / goodbyes to diners. Guests arriving are quickly seated, and when asked, staff do display good product knowledge, able to describe in simple terms the various items on the menu, as well as offer recommendations. Orders are fulfilled quickly, usually within 10 minutes even during peak periods. Staff also turn over and set tables quickly. However, they're not proactive or observant, you'll usually have to prompt them to serve the next course, and there is minimal engagement.

Food at Saveur is rustic, straight forward, classic traditional French dishes. Dishes may not look pretty, but they pack good flavour and are tasty, with the main ingredient being the star of each plate. Portions are medium small, nicely sized for individuals. Prices are more affordable as compared to elsewhere, and Saveur is possibly among the cheapest, good quality French food in Singapore. Budget about SGD $33 per person for a 3 course meal without drinks here.

The lovely Salmon Confit (SGD $10.90) features a medium sized, half confit fillet of fresh salmon, served on a bed of crunchy chives, kombu, apple slices, and fennel, tossed in a zesty citrus lemon vinaigrette, with capers on the side. The beautifully pink, half-cooked salmon fish flesh is tender, clean, and smooth, and the crust of pepper and spring onions lend a burst of flavour. The salmon skin is fried till crisp, and crunches satisfiyingly. More than art on a plate with its beautiful presentation, it's deliciously light and extremely tasty. Highly recommended!

The Pork Belly (SGD $12.90) features thick yet tender slices of pork belly, savoury with a silver of fat between the layers of succulent meat, topped with a crisp skin. Served on a bed of Garbure French ham and vegetable stew, consisting of soft melt-in-your-mouth cannellini beans, salty pancetta ham, cabbage, peas, carrots, along with a sous vide egg. A dash of pepper, and a streak of sharp mustard, and this delicious, hearty, French comfort dish is complete. Loved it, would order again. Highly recommended!

eldest daughter organised a 3pax family dinner at saver @ purvis on 1.3.2015.

we had very good family dinner recently at concetto (another saver restaurant) on 18.1.2015.

& this place was just as fun. the next day i came with my godsis & a good friend’s daughter for the set lunch at S$22.90, & it was just as good. the set lunch menu here is more attractive than that at concetto, which really had very limited choice (they really should review that!).

the restuarant had 2 adjacent dining area. this one was absolutely packed. we were not able to get sitting at the other side where the sitting was more spacious even though we booked beforehand.

i booked the next day lunch, making sure i could get the other, but that turned out to be unnecessary as we were the only table. what a difference lunch & dinner!

this saveur pasta was different from concetto pasta. that had crab bisque & ikura, this one minced pork sauce & sakura ebi & priced cheaper at $4.90 (vs S$6.90).

i liked both (& was quite happy to take it again the next day). one reviewer said it tasted like bakchormee? it didn’t to me, but it was nice, very al dente & flavourful.^^

the belly pork was excellent, very tender, moist & still having the texture, excellent low temperature cooking. the crackling skin was not crackling like the chinese roast pork, but totally edible. love the lentils.

the seabass was excellent too! this was really a very good pan seared seabass! liked the potatoes too.

the duck confit was very good, just like that at concetto. the cookies & milk ice cream was good, but no wow factor for me, & it was more expensive.

the pistachio panna cotta was lovely. my doughtier liked it very much. maybe i will try this at home.

Visited Saveur for the first time and wow, we had to wait for an hour for a seat! This seem to be a place popular with teenage groups. We went to a nearby coffeeshop for some drinks before our seats were ready.
We ordered the Crispy Duck Confit with orange. The orange taste was negligible in my opinion. The duck leg tasted average overall. Its skin was crispy and its meat was not too dry. Barely filled my stomach after finishing it!
My friend ordered Salmon Confit. It tasted soft with a mild taste and the salmon was fresh. Once again, a small portion served. We then ordered Angel's hair pasta to share. The portion was not huge either but it was then enough to fill our stomach. The pasta tasted flavourful and being a pasta-lover myself, i loved it. We also ordered their Foie Gras which was awesome. Soft and flavourful, we enjoyed this dish the most!
I was told that french food outside would cost way much more, hence this is a more economical option for french-food lovers.
The cafe was just filled with people and with everybody shouting to one another in the enclosed area, it was simply too noisy to speak to even the one sitting next to you! Not a very cool place for gatherings in my opinion.

COOKIES & MILK ($9.90)
Cookie dough ice cream, milk soil, honey cloud, cherries kirsch & peanut butter
It looks like a pool of foam when served. Below the foam, there is brownish solid piece. It is crunchy and tastes of honey and peanut butter. Not only that, it has a poping effect in the mouth. Kind of reminding me of a sweet which I had when I was young.

Overall it is quite an enjoyable meal. Although we are the last few customers in the restaurant, the staffs do not rush us out.

Good:
- The meat of the duck is not too tough. Coupled with the potato-like thing beneath, it tastes wonderful.
- The foie gras tastes superb. Soft and tender, it simply melts ib your mouth.

Not-so-good
- The foie gras seems a little oily.
- Had to wait for almost an hour since it is such a popular place.
- It gets quite noisy when everyone is shouting in the restaurant, especially since it is such a great place for gatherings.
- Due to shortage of staff, getting their attention is quite difficult as they are always busy.

Overall:
Good place to have french food without bursting your budget. Will come back to eat again in future!

The proportion of lean and fat in the pork is just right. Not too fatty. However, maybe it's French cuisine, the portion is a bit too smallThe egg yolk is liquid and when pierce blends well with the lentil. Total spending for this meal is less than $30

I've never had duck leg confit before hence I don't have a benchmark. But even then, I knew that this was good, especially for a price of just $12.90! The duck skin was crispy and the duck leg was tender and came apart easily. The mashed potato was soft and creamy.

This is definitely THE place to go if you're looking for nice and affordable French food!

The main attraction at Saveur is probably the duck confit, which was competently executed. However, I would urge other diners to try the other dishes too! We tried the sea bass, the angel hair pasta and citrus dessert, all of which were delicious, light (good for those who gripe that Western food is 'heavy'), nicely plated and served fairly quickly. It's easy to see why Saveur continues to draw in the crowds even after all these years!

Famous dish, the noodle was wonderfully presented. Sakura pinky shrimps were gorgeously drizzled on top of it, tossed with chilli oil as well. Savoury sauce was actually sticked to Pasta if you noticed, incredible taste and each line of noodles well-coated consistently after stirring up. Only a starter yet it enough for my tea-time snack, it costed $4.90.

I would recommend this as one of the top dishes in the restaurant cause the beef was just so tender, juicy and well marinated. The potato gratin that came with it was fantastic too. Buttery fragrance and explosion in flavour which keeps you going bite after bite! 3 thumbs up!

This is the signature dish of Saveur and I could easily tell why. The meat just slides off the bone with a gentle touch. A mouthful of duck, complemented with the mash potato and accompanying sauce is a match made in heaven.

Perhaps I havent got around trying too many duck confit, but this is really really good!

For chocolate lovers, the thicky fluffy creamy mousse littered with chunks of hazelnut and berries will be just for you. I kind of love how they plated it, not conventionally centralised with its eye catching explosive effect.

Plus points: great service from great attitude servers.
Down side: waiting time during peak hour is horrible. Even when you get to go int the restaurant, it will probably take 15 minutes before your order is taken and 45mins to 1 hour for the food to serve. It's a small little place so don't expect it to be a quiet place but rather, the opposite spectrum instead.
