Guests arrived at the restaurant in style through the independent street-front entrance. With its ambience, and renowned Fullerton hospitality, it makes La Brasserie an exceptional waterfront dining experience for every occasion.

Boasting 10-metre-high floor to ceiling windows offering stunning views of Marina Bay, and Neo-Palladian architecture, La Brasserie exudes an understated opulence, which recent renovations have further enhanced.

Near the entrance there is a Gin & Tonic station, where you get close to the making of gin tonic on the spot. Get it served on a bubble glass before you enjoy it.

The food of La Brasserie is a harmony of French brasserie classics and dishes that have the hallmark of ‘cuisine du soleil’ or  ‘cuisine of the sun

It is a cuisine characterised by Mediterranean flavours and a lighter touch, with ingredients that evoke the ‘essence’ of the sun.

From the menu, we start off with the traditional onion soup.

TRADITIONAL ONION SOUP, Gratinated Cheese Croutons

Soup without croutons is like a salad without pepper. Croutons, internationally, is one of the most popular soup accompaniment. This French Onion Soup is authentic and has an amazing depth of flavor.

AUBERGINE CAVIAR TARTINE, Tomato Confit, Buffalo Mozzarella

Eggplant, or aubergine, is a species of nightshade, grown for its edible fruit. Eggplant is the common name in North America, Australia and New Zealand, but British English uses the French word aubergine. Buffalo Mozzarella is a mozzarella made from the milk of Mediterranea Italiana buffalo. The term mozzarella derives from the procedure called mozzare which means “cutting by hand”, separating from the curd, and serving in individual pieces, that is, the process of separation of the curd into small balls. It is appreciated for its versatility and elastic texture and often called “the queen of the Mediterranean cuisine”. Combining these ingredients with Caviar and Tomato Confit on a piece of toast bread is as Mediterranean as it can be.

BOEUF RUMPSTEAK, Slow Roasted Wagyu Rump, Crispy Garlic

Wagyu is any of four Japanese breeds of beef cattle, the most desired of which is genetically predisposed to intense marbling and to producing a high percentage of oleaginous unsaturated fat. The meat from such wagyu cattle is known for its quality, and commands a high price. The marbling in wagyu makes it very forgiving. It is at its juiciest and most tender when the fat is melted throughout the meat, so it is recommended to serve it medium rare to medium. The wagyu rump here was cooked to perfection. Very juicy and tender.

SUPREME DE CANARD CONFIT, Confit of Duck, Beluga Lentils, Crisp Salad

Duck confit is a French dish made with the whole duck. Duck confit is considered one of the finest French dishes. While it is made across France, it is seen as a specialty of Gascony. The confit is prepared in a centuries-old process of preservation that consists of salt curing a piece of meat (generally duck) and then cooking it in its own fat. This dish is done perfectly with the duck leg crispy while keeping the meat soft and juicy.
