Located just minute away from Orchard Road, Skyve is an all-day wine bistro, popular for its hearty modern European fare and extremely well-priced wines. The wine bistro offers three different spaces perfect for any occasion.
This marks my third visit to Skyve. I had won an Instagram contest, and was awarded with $50 worth of dining vouchers. Prior to my visit, CK, the general manager, emailed me to apologize for not being able to be present during my dinner reservation on Wednesday, 8 July, and assured me that his service team would be on hand to ensure that I would have a great dinner. I was very surprised at this warm gesture.
My partner and I were warmly welcomed into the restaurant. We ordered a side of truffle & thyme fries, which were served in a steamer basket. For $12, the portion was really generous! The fries were crispy and the taste of truffle oil was strong enough work it being overwhelming. We were also impressed that the fries continued to remain crispy, even after some time.
Next, we enjoyed a pizza slab of Prosciutto Ham. The pizza base was thin and crispy, and served with fresh arugula and prosciutto ham. For a small eater, this will suffice as a main dish.
We next tucked into Sous Vide Grilled Duroc Pork Rack ($42). The crackling skin of the pork was succulent and crispy. The pork rack was really delectable, and served together with spinach and sweet corn, this made a great dinner. Skyve's refreshing take on a typical grilled pork dish impressed us.
There's always room for dessert, so we ordered Callebaut Molten Chocolate Lava Cake. This was decent, but not extraordinary. The cake could be a little more moist, though the chocolate lava was not too bad. For $14, this was a little pricey for us.
Lastly, kudos to the service staff, who were warm and attentive, constantly checking on us and refilling our glasses with water.
We also appreciated the lovely ambience of Skyve, with music playing softly in the background, dim lights in the restaurant, which enabled us to enjoy a lovely date night and spend quality time with each other. We highly recommend Skyve, and will return again!
This restaurant has ambiance, a discerning menu, acceptable prices for the excellent quality. I found the service ok, but could improve a bit if waiters would act a bit more like advisors, rather than simple order takers. A high note for the absence of loud music! Finally a place that understands that customers want, wish, should interact during their dinner time instead of listening to the latest commercial drum beat and stare into little screens.
