Good for a treat, but don't forget to bring along some platinum plastic.

It was by some force of nature or beautiful serendipity that we ended up at Au Petit Salut because who would have thought that I would chance upon a French restaurant that combines two of my most favourite "bizarre eats" into one smashing entree?! Snails...baked right into the bone marrow and generously smothered with garlic and parsley butter; what could be better?

BEWARE !!

Been to APS today for dinner...it was one of my worst dining experiences ever !! can't believe how much the standard has dropped !! we selected APS to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary today after considering a lot of other choices...and i must say it was an aweful experience. The waiters knew we were having a horrible evening and couldn't care less. My wife is a vegetarian and while booking the table she was promised "plenty of veg options"...she was offered pasta in tomato sauce (wow, do they have a kid chef ??) They forgot a part of our order, mixed up the dishes, didn't come even once to pour the wine, and above all, served the wrong desert !! I am not usually a fan of writing reviews but I am doing this for the benefit of anyone considering this place...PLEASE DON"T WASTE YOUR TIME and MONEY to go to this place like we did today...we felt totally cheated of $470 for 3 pax !

Good for a special occasion

Went there for a family birthday celebration. Remembered the nice cosy ambience in particular. Good service (although beef cheek which was my daughter's favorite, was not in that day's dinner menu, the chef was able to delight her with a beef cheek!). good food. chocolate fondant is worth trying !

Au Petit Salut - accolade for sure

It was my birthday and what better than French for the one who loves anything French - culture, music, books, movies, history and yes, food!   I loved the secluded setting of this classy, elegant French restaurant - the indoors exude old-world charm while the outdoors lends serenity from nature, with its gently flowing waterfalls and rocky walls. The ambience was totally tranquil, marvelously enchanting and romantic.   My main course - Black Cod came next - another buttery smooth delicacy but with the light, fishy succulence instead of the heavy richness of the appetiser. The lobster bisque that graced the fish was awesome - it was the icing on the cake!    The Venison Loin was also served - another tender chunks of savoury delicacy that sprang to life in the mouth. The venison loin was chewy and boosted of the richness of beef, but came with a slightly gamey hint - subtle, easily masked with the lovely sauce and cream it was served with.   For more detailed information and photos, do grace the following: http://thearcticstar.blogspot.sg/2014/01/dinner-at-au-petit-salut.html

Stones in Main Course

I went for a date night with my husband on 7 Feb 2014, a Friday evening. The restaurant was less than half full, and was quiet and cosy.  We enjoyed the ambience.  

After ordering the drinks, I ordered a duck liver appetizer and my hubby had the escagots.  Both dishes were okay.

For the main course, I ordered the black cod while my hubby had the duck leg confit.  We got the mesclun salad as a side.  

The duck leg confit was a tad too dry and tough, and also too salty.  But the bigger surprise was in the black cod dish.  The black cod sits on a pile of chopped mussels mixed with some grains and spices.  When I was half way through the pile of chopped mussels and grains, I bit on a stone and it gave me a shock.  My husband could hear the cracking sound made by my teeth.  I spat it out and continued eating the rest of the food.  Towards the end, I bit on a second stone.  TWO STONES IN ONE DISH!  This was not what I had expected of a reputable restaurant.  But I didn't want to make a scene as we were having a good time with each other.  So I just informed the waitress who was near our table about the stones.  

She cleared our plates and left.  After a while, another waiter came to us and explained about the ingredients used. He went on to say that none of the ingredients used in the dish could have contained any stone.  He was not apologetic and did not ask whether I was ok after biting on the stones.  He didn't even admit that the restaurant was at any fault in serving the dish.  At this time, the dessert was served and he left.  

At the end of the meal, we were given the billl, and the restaurant just behaved as if nothing has happened.  It did not think that it has a duty of care to diners, who assume that the food they consume is safe.

I am sharing this to warn all those who intends to patronize the restaurant.  While the general level of service is good, they became defensive when told that something is not right.
