Lunch menu

I must say Gunther has not disapointed me with his selection of set lunch. IT had portobello mushroom, Seafood of the day ( snapper) and mango sorbet. The mango sorbet was simply divine...and it really tasted more of ( mango pudding). The combination of flavors in the food was very intricately added.

Lunch Set

Gunther's is one of the best French restaurants in Singapore. Located in the middle of the shophouses, next to its sister restaurant Garibaldi Italian Restaurant & Bar, another equally well known restaurant. Although the restaurant is quite high end with its equally expensive priced menu, it offers quite a reasonable priced 3 course lunch set at $38++ which is available on weekday. The restaurant is decorated in grey with paintings and dim lights around which gives an elegant setting. Besides the usual menu, the staff also make his offers on what is in season by using a "daily special cart". Today there is vegetables from Japan, lamb, wagyu beef, and assorted seafood such king crab, scallop. But the one which holds everyone's attention is the truffle. Even when covers in a glass cover, one can easily smells the earthy pungent smell. Before starting the meal, one is served with hot towel to wipe with. One is served with a pipping warm mini buguette and butter to start the meal. Though the bread looks hard, it is quite crispy and soft to texture. For today's lunch set, there is 3 choices for starter : Farmer's salad, Clear vegetable soup, and Braised Portobello mushroom, sunny side up egg. Braised Portobello mushroom, sunny side up egg The mushroom is quite well flavoured. Next is the main which also comes with 3 choices : Gunther's Creation (seafood pasta), Braised lamb stew, Leffe beer, and Charcoal grilled Wagyu steak (additional S$20++). Cold Angel hair pasta, Oscietra caviar ($60++) However I decide to go with the staff's recommendation to topup $40++ more to change the main course to the restaurant's signature cold pasta dish. It is quite popular which could be found in most tables. Refreshing cold and smells great of truffle which makes one high before eating. The last course is the dessert which also comes with 3 choices : Dessert of the Day (Pineapple Panna Cotta), Cheese Platter (additional S$10++), and Fine apple tart "à la dragées", Havana rum raisin ice cream (additional S$8++). Fine apple tart "à la dragées", Havana rum raisin ice cream ($25++) The apple tart is different from the traditional apple tart. It looks more like a flat pizza. Thin slices of soft caramelised apple on a very thin base. Crunchy and crispy on the outside. The ice cream is rich and creamy. Pairing the cold ice cream and the warm apple tart together is quite a yummy combination. Lastly there is coffee or tea and Petit fours to end the meal with. The coffee is quite rich with a slight bitter and chocolaty taste. I have it with just milk and without sugar. It is just nice to balance with the sweetness from the dessert and petit fours. The petit fours consists of Financier, Canele, Wafer and chocolate. I like the canel, which has a soft and tender custard center with a dark, thick caramelized crust. Overall the food is quite delicious. The place is packed even it is a weekday lunch time. Although the restaurant is busy, its Chef Gunther still make an effort to visit the tables.

Lunch was underwhelming

On a whim, and because Garibaldi was full next door - I decided to jump in for the lunch set. Ordered the 'famous' cold angel hair pasta - while extravagant with its truffles, caviar and star chef - was somewhat disappointing. The prawns in the lunch set were good. The follow up with the wagyu steak was sadly lacking. Meat was lackluster, sides were tragic - fried onion here, grilled corn there and a splash of mustard anyone ? My own lesson learnt was that my money is better spent next door and at Les Amis. On the upside, service was really really good. I felt pampered like a queen.

I gave the food,value and ambience 3 stars each because that's the average and I have no opinion on any of them because sadly, I was not allowed in to the restaurant.

I've been wanting to try the food at Gunther's for years now, but just never got around to it. So when my friend asked me if I wanted to have lunch with her there, I jumped at the opportunity. Knowing that it was a pretty good restaurant, I thought there might be a dress code so I googled "gunther's dress code" and tried looking through the website to see if there was one. When I was unable to find any, I decided to go with a pair of denim shorts and shoes for the lunch.

Because I wore shorts, I was not allowed in to their restaurant. When I told them that I had not known and had even done my due diligence to check their website, they simply blamed Singapore Restaurant Week, saying that they usually inform diners of the dress code but do not do so when the booking is made through Singapore Restaurant Week. They were unsympathetic to my situation, that I had no idea about the dress code even after checking their website. The female waitress then showed me that their website does indeed list down a dress code, but only when you click on the "ONLINE RESERVATION" button. But why would I ever have clicked on that button when I'd already had a booking through Singapore Restaurant Week? The female waitress seemed apologetic but said that she just could not admit us, while the french waiter (or manager) seemed completely unapologetic and arrogant. When we asked if we could be given another reservation slot in lieu of the misunderstanding today, they simply dismissed us, saying that it was beyond them to accommodate us another day.

I'd understand and take full responsibility if I had been informed of the dress code and still chose to wear shorts. I'd even understand if it was listed clearly in their website. The disappointing way this matter was handled has ensured that I won't ever desire to dine in Gunther's again.
