Very intimate setting & impeccable service

Came here for Restaurant Week 2015 -- One heck of a taste explosion. I keep saying this, but I was never a ribs person until Texas changed me. Now I understand that the really good ribs simply fall off the bone & fortunately I now know how to appreciate those! This was exactly that; a slow cooked for 3 hours kind of heaven. Seafood casserole, I may be biased, but I love anything seafood. A good mix of different kinds, a great proportion of everything harmoniously coming together with perfectly cooked potatoes & cheese. & the Crème brûlée was simply one of THE best I've ever had in my life. Another plus point about this place - impeccable service & polite waitstaff (including the owner himself) who are so attentive to every detail really made this dining experience very pleasant. I've never experienced such stellar service in any dining establishment in Singapore, not even the "higher end"/fancy-schmancy poshnosh kind of places. & yes, I just had to let them know I had a very enjoyable time.

Disappointing experience

My partner and I tried Praelum as the place we wanted to go to was full and we didn't want to wait for a table.

This turned out to be a poor decision: unremarkable food & wine and quite pretentious.

There are much better options in the area for this price point...

Hello HungryTummy!

This is Gerald from Praelum and we are deeply disappointed to receive a bad review from you.

We would like to improve and if you could share with us what and why was it not good and how our staff were pretentious, we would gladly make the necessary changes.

After which, we hope you can give us another opportunity to make it up to you.

Please contact us and share deeper details. My email is gerald@praelum.com.sg

sincerely
Gerald & Joel

Wanted to try a different place from our usual dining spot and chanced upon this nice wine bistro. 

Joel was excellent in serving us and gave us good recommendations for food and wine. He took time to explain the food and the wine. Service was personal. 

The food was good. The Pork parcels and salmon were the favorites. 

Thanks to Joel and the Chef, this will be a place to be frequent.

Critics' Reviews
Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
What to Eat
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
