Housed in one of Singapore's trendiest heritage districts, La Maison Fatien extends the tradition, warmth and welcome of its namesake in Burgundy. The concept is driven by the family's winery in France, the “Fatien Pere & Fils” and our wines’ is foremostly a tribute to the great wines of Burgundy.
There have been a number of French bistro openings in the recent months, so much that we are bordering on declaring fatigue.
Thankfully, we found a reviving dish in French bistro La Maison Fatien’s signature duck confit.
Their version is a generous hunk of duck, subtly salty with tender flesh and hints of crisp skin. It is served with a mound of greens and a generous heap of sliced potatoes cooked, also, in duck fat. At $28, it is the priciest dish on the menu and well worth the price tag.
The starter of pan-seared duck liver ($18) with caramelized apple and raisin glaze is another winner on price and quality; as is the rustic dish of braised lamb ($26) crowned with a riot of French beans, which features on the daily changing menu of cocotte (small iron pot) specials.
While it isn’t Singapore’s best-value-for-money French bistro, it helps that starters here are capped at $18, and some mains, such as the pan-seared sea bass start at the same price.
The roots of La Maison Fatien links back directly to the Fatien family, who own a four-suite luxury bed & breakfast and a wine merchandising business in Burgundy. The Maison’s wines are the bistro’s pride and joy. Only 150,000 bottles are produced annually, and a mere fraction is exported to be served, and sold here.
For their maiden voyage in Singapore, they’ve converted the first level space to be a pared-down wine bar proffering a well-curated list of French wines. A charming, partially brick-walled dining room framed by pretty French windows sits on the second; and a soon-to-open private function space on the fourth floor.
La Maison Fatien’s defining element will rely heavily on how well it continues to execute French classics dishes, while keeping it at fairly wallet-friendly prices. If it manages, it’ll do just fine.
Went with the wife for a special dinner. We were welcomed into a cosy corner that is decorated in a contemporary manner but preserving the charm of a conserved duxton rd shophouse. I personally love the wall in the mezzanine area is filled with scenes of old Singapore. Beautiful.
This quaint restaurant La Maison Fantien offers French cuisine executed with great care and creativity. Many dishes that we had were tasty and exquisite like the cheese souffle , veal, lamb shank and the poached pear dessert. You should try their wine cos even their house pour is fabulous.
We found our new favourite restaurant!
Went there for Valentine's Day, only had a choice between Wagyu beef and Black cod for main dish, other courses were fixed. Overall it was okay, not very satisfying. Service was good though.
