Caviar @ Palais Renaissance - Showcasing Caviars From Around The World


New at the basement of Palais Renaissance is Caviar, Singapore's first caviar-based restaurant showcasing a wide variety of caviars around the globe, incorporating them into the menu by a team of young chefs with bags of fine-tuning experience from various Michelin-starred restaurants.


Amuse Bouche

I visited Caviar for their 4-course Lunch ($128++), starting with a glass of champagne and amuse bouche. The bite-size amuse bouche is topped with caviar from China.



Next, complimentary bread with caviar butter is served to kickstart the meal.

Swordfish 4/5

Starting our 4-course menu proper is the Swordfish served with abalone slices. It comes in a thin blanket of kohlrabi laid over the swordfish and abalone, topped with arctic char roe. A light and refreshing ginger vinegar holds everything together for a complex yet harmonious finishing.

Organic Egg 4.2/5

The Organic Egg is a beautiful dish in which the smooth and silky steamed egg custard is paired with chorizo and caviar from Giaveri White Sturgeon. However, being a caviar theme restaurant, I thought the chorizo sold the limelight of the dish. Saying so, it is a dish that everyone at my table enjoyed.

Wagyu 4.5/5

For the mains, we had the Wagyu paired with broccolini, smoked mash and topped with Royal Oscietra's caviar. The excellent cut is cooked to perfection. It is tender and juicy, not too fatty, with a fantastic bite to appreciate its natural beefy flavour. Once again, I was distracted from the caviar by the beautiful wagyu.

Coconut 3.8/5

Got to say, not everything on the menu has caviar. The Coconut dessert is a welcoming freshness from the fruity strawberries and lime to wrap up the meal on a refreshing note..

Petit Four 4/5

Lastly, the 4-course lunch ends on a high with the Petite Four. I have enjoyed my lunch at Caviar, which enriched my knowledge of caviar. I always think caviar comes from Russia, but you can source it globally. As for the food, they are well-executed and delicious. However, I felt some dishes could be better by turning the caviar into the leading actor instead of being a calafare.

Note: This is an invited tasting.
