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.
Was ard the Newton area and recalled the cosy place where I had my first experience of Sous vide cooking. Decided to head down again since I was withy dearie who had heard me rave abt it previously but never had the chance to try their food. My dearie, like a good Singaporean foodie, googled Skyve to check the out the reviews and was surprised by the 2 recent reviews needling Skyve for it's poor quality of food and even poorer service. Despite the reviews, we decided to "take a gamble" and check it out again. Thankfully the gamble paid off. :) We didn't make a reservation but had a warm welcome by the wait staff. After having our pick of the sitting area, we settled for an order of truffles fries, salad as well as the Sous Vide Poulet. The generous portion of truffle fries, which came in a dim sum holder, was fragrant,pipping hot and stayed crispy till the end. The salad, with an assortment of greens, was topped with prosciutto ham, pine nuts and almonds. A tasty starter! Next came our Sous vide Poulet with roasted veges which didnt disappoint; tender drumstick with beautifully roasted root vegs and silky smooth and buttery mash. Through out our meal, the wait staff was more than helpful, topping up our icE water frequently and even offering to split our Sous vide Poulet onto individual dishe's when they realized we were sharing. We finished off our meal with a camomile creme Brûlée with lychee sorbet that in the words of my dearie was "very nice without being cloyingly sweet" Great food, great service and good music - I'd definitely be back!
