The Gallery Bistro @ Singapore National Gallery - Chic Museum Cafe With A Picturesque View Of The Singapore Skyline


Tucked on the first floor of National Gallery is The Gallery Bistro, a museum cafe that offers all-day dining from a relaxing brunch in the day to an alfresco co bar at night with mains and cocktails while soaking in the beautiful views of the Singapore's skyline.


As part of their ongoing promotions, The Gallery Bistro offers free dozen oysters for every 2 pax reservation with purchase of any ala carte items. This promotion is available from Mondays to Fridays, after 6pm. For every main ordered, kids below the age of 12 years old get to enjoy a free kids meal as well. This promotion is available daily before 5pm.

Lobster Bisque 4/5

To start the meal, we had the Lobster Bisque ($19). The lobster broth is creamy and flavourful, served with cream of chives and a small handful of lobster flesh.

Steak & Frites 4/5

There was an option for either the Striploin (250g/$28) or Ribeye (250g/$38) for the Steak & Frites, and we chose the latter. The thick medium-rare ribeye cut is succulent, well-seasoned, and yields intensely savoury flavours. It was served alongside a generous portion of fries.

White Wine and Clams Mafaldine 3.5/5

Tossed in garlic, shallot and clams, and butter sautéed in white wine with fresh herbs, the White Wine and Clams Mafaldine ($24) turned out relatively flat in taste, the white wine flavour was rather subtle. I liked the thick and chewy Mafaldine pasta, which has a firmer bite compared to others.

French Toast 4.2/5

End your meal on a sweet note with their variety of sweets on the desserts menu. We had the French Toast ($18) which comes in a thick, soft and fluffy French toast, garnished with cream Chantilly and fresh berries. Adding a scoop of house-made blue pea ice cream from Bread & Butterfly (+$4) is a great decision, as it elevates the toast's flavours, and made it less dry and cloying to finish.
