Opened in 16 November 2015, Artemis Grill is the latest restaurant in Singapore F&B scene located on level 40 of CapitaGreen with a stunting view of the Marina bay area. Artemis Grill menu brings to the Singapore shore, the best in organic Mediterranean and sustainable dining.

Homemade Bread with Dukkah Spice and Olive Oil 4/5

After placing our order, we were served complimentary Homemade Bread with Dukkah Spice and Olive Oil. The black stuff in the picture is the Dukkah Spice. This is my first time having bread with it and I enjoyed the different experience.

Alaskan Crabs Salad 4.5/5

Dinner began with the Alaskan Crabs Salad ($28) that is paired with grilled pimento peppers, avocado and tomato petals. I was told that the chef wants the guest to enjoy the freshness and natural sweetness of the crab meat and hence it is intentionally served in chunky pieces, I applauded the thought as I got to enjoy the delicious crustacean meat to the fullest.

Beetroot Tortellini 4/5

The Beetroot Tortellini ($20/$30) looks like little roses on my plate. The beetroot tortellini is stuffed with feta and ricotta, and served with asparagus, broccolini and carrot puree. The filling of the tortellini may come across a bit heavy for some. I would advice having it together with the sweet carrot puree for a more balance in flavour.

Maine Lobster Tail 3.8/5

From the grill section, we have the Maine Lobster Tail 900g ($90) with Corn and Potato Fricassee, drizzled with lobster jus. I enjoyed the fact that the lobster meat is grilled to a delectable crunchy bite, not over cooked. However it felt that some parts of it was burnt, giving it a bitter taste instead of the smokiness from the grill.

Spicy Iberico Pork Presa 4.5/5

An interesting and surprised dish is the Spicy Iberico Pork Presa ($40) with Tomato Relish and Padron Peppers. We usually wants our meat to be tender and moist but this is completely opposite. The iberico pork is actually quite dry. However, that is the surprising part, the more you bite or chew into it, the flavour seems to tease you more. Unknowingly, you continue to indulge in the flavour as you have more of it. It's like enjoying a piece of dried cuttlefish or bak kwa.

Crispy Heirloom Cauliflower 4.2/5

Besides the mains from the grill, we also order the Crispy Heirloom Cauliflower ($14) with lemon zest, almond, tarragon and spicy aoli from the side menu. It is like a mini cauliflower garden with the different color of cauliflowers. Among the various cauliflowers, the lightly battered tempura cauliflower is my favourite.

Chocolate Trio 4/5

Richness on a plate is the Chocolate Trio ($18). The chocolate haven consists of Valhorona chocolate tart, mocha ice cream and passionfruit chocolate cake. However it was the robust mocha ice cream that stole my heart among the trio.

Apricot & Lavender Souffle 4.2/5

It will be worthwhile to wait for 20 minutes for the Apricot & Lavender Souffle ($20). The unique combination is a good chance from the norm. I am not a sweet tooth person and hence I enjoyed the tartness of the souffle. If you do not have a good tolerance of sourness, I would recommend pouring the walnut creme anglaise into the souffle and have it together with the vanilla ice cream to neutralize it.

Apricot & Lavender Souffle 4.2/5

Artemis Grill is definitely one of the best dining experience for me in 2015. I am already planning for for next visit to impress my guest with the food as well as the breathtaking view from the rooftop at level 40.
