Residing at the swanky Purvis Street, Gunther's bring about sophisticated French fare to the chic fine dining scene. The meticulously-crafted restaurant, whose name yields the personality of Gunther himself, the man behind this establishment, depicts the realization of a dream that he has over the years- that is a place to call his home.
With a list of signature dishes and more than 350 labels of wine have been carefully selected in pairing with Chef Gunther's creations to complete the diner's gastronomic experience.
I had tried to change my reservation for 2 to 3, and originally this was not possible.
However, a day before the scheduled date, Gunther's called and suggested a later timing which would accomodate 3pax.
At first I still maintained the reservation for 2 pax albeit at the suggested later timing, however when I was at the restaurant itself, my 3rd friend could make it after all and Gunther's graciously allowed for it.
All 3 of us were awed by the food, every course was very very good.
It being my birthday, Gunther's also gave us a free iced dessert with the words Happy Birthday. Will definitely return to Gunther's
We enjoyed ourselves very much with the amazing food experience. Thank you Restaurant Week!
Upon walking into the restaurant, we smell the truffle lingering in the air making us excited about the food! We have to wait for our turn to be served. The waiting area is slightly on the small side, but I believe it is not meant to let people to wait for long.
After the waiter sat us down at the private room area (I believe), the room has a simple black decoration, for me, less is more. The only thing that can be improved on, probably some instrumental music will help to enjoy the lunch more. Other than that, the place is great.
We ordered 4 appetizers, all are good! The Foie Gras is the best we had, it melts in our mouth and the crunch from the other ingredients, the taste is heavenly.
Main dish was the Roasted Duck Breast, juicy, tender and tasty. All the sauces were good and sides are good mix with the duck.
Desserts. Lemon Souffle, so soft and fluffy, good mix between the chocolate chip and the fluffy Lemon Souffle.
End off the meal with Petit Four + Coffee/Tea, getting us ready for the challenge for the rest of the day. Coffee & tea are great, petit four are good too!
We will go to Gunther's again :) Thank you Gunther's & Restaurant Week to make this happen.
The food is good. Waiters are polite and friendly.
high quality food and service
will definetely go again
Overall very good experience. Food was good.
Service was good.
Nothing to complain about.
If I have to be picky maybe the lemon dessert was just a little sour to my liking
For lunch, the wait for food was longer than expected. Most of my crowd are working professional and we visit it on a Friday afternoon. Eventually it took close to 2 hours to complete the meal and everyone had to rush off. If there is less waiting time between food it will be better.
Starters and Main were good. Dessert, lemon souffle was not liked by the crowd, no one manage to finished it. The touch of providing some chocolates with coffee was good.
I give a 9 for cuisine for the outstanding dinner menu put together for restaurant week. I was impressed with Gunther's for putting forward its best dishes even for a pre-arranged menu. The 'angel hair pasta with caviar' (widely recognised as their signature dish) did not disappoint. The burst of flavour created by the delicately cooked pasta drenched in truffle oil was intense and, at the same time, not overpowering. The other dish which I must mention is the 'scallop with pilau rice and cherry tomato'. The scallop was cooked to perfection and its tender flesh melted immediately when placed on the tongue.
The only (minor) complaint about the food that I can think of is that the beef was somewhat overdone (making the rating a 9 instead of a 10). Other than that it was truly a fantastic dining experience. The staff was professional and courteous and made us feel welcomed. I will definitely return to Gunther's before too long.
My rating for cuisine & service are both 10 (unable to adjust the bar using ipad).
Lunch during restaurant week menu is outstanding. It was our best meal during restaurant week. The cold angel hair drizzled with truffle oil and lobster with pilaf rice are both amazing. I was speechless when I tried the foie gras (top-up) as it simply melts in my mouth with a nutty taste. Highly recommended. Service from a Singaporean waiter was very good too. Only downside was the lemon soufflé dessert was too sour. We thought that our visit would be 10/10 if the dessert could be nicer since the appetizer and main course raised our expectations highly. Nonetheless, it is a great restaurant and I would love to come back for its foie gras and angel hair!
Definitely the best in Singapore, the angel hair pasta are simply amazing! Appreciate the owner understand the real meaning of "restaurant week" and put so many signature dish into the 5 courses set. Will definitely coming back very soon...
We had the additional appetizer and wine to round up an excellent meal
