Good food. Great views. Good service. Little on the expensive side. Have gone twice for business lunch with set menu with nice options to choose from.

We just had lunch at Jaan. The food was pretty good (with nice surprises and good portions overall), but not fantastic. The views of the bay were great though. A few things detracted from our experience. When we approaced the reception desk, the person asked...us in a very rude voice, "You have a reservation at Jaan?" I guess something about our apperance gave her the impression that we weren't the type of people who would make a reservation at Jaan. Next, we found that the regular 4 course menu that's mentioned on their website was not available today. At least they should have mentioned on their website and/or in an email or SMS that only more expensive options are available today. Then we would have chosen to come on another day. We were forced to pay 33% extra for one small portion. This was basically deceptive. And on top of that, they charged for water.More

I booked a table for lunch through Jaan’s website 6 weeks in advance to celebrate the much anticipated anniversary. The reservation was confirmed via email on Nov 17. I received a call two weeks before the lunch informing me that the restaurant will be closed...on the day of my booking. Prior reservation was “a system error”. The caller’s tone was unapologetic. Citing that the call was a courtesy from the restaurant trying to make other arrangements. But, what choice do I have? Move my anniversary date? Appalled by the service, truly disappointed.More

JAAN's food, wine and service are all so fine that one feels the good people at Michelin are being very grudging. If the quality I experienced can be sustained then another star must be about the surest bet in fine dining right now. Superb value...for what you get. There are great views too, but, once service starts, you'll barely care. This place could be in a third-level sub basement and I'd still happily queue to get in. Stop reading this. Ask them nicely for a table.More

Superb food. Excellent wine list and sommelier. Service levels top notch. We didn’t get the window seating we asked for but it wasn’t an issue as (sadly) nobody got a view based on the windows being misted up. Little bit cheeky slipping in the cheese...board pre dessert as I wasn’t aware it was extra but again it was superb quality so all’s well. The prices will hit your pocket hard but you get what you pay for and as dining experiences go in Singapore this is one of the best for sure.More

Great food with strong flavours, love all the links to Devon and Cornwall. Amazing bread which we were given a second loaf of to take home. Very nice touch that Kirk comes out to chat to each guest at the end of the me. View...from the dinning room is incredible. Would highly recommend.More

I booked the restaurant on line in late July for a birthday in late September. I didn't hear a thing as follow up... I started trying to chase up in August and did not discover any successful method. For example Voice mail box was full...every single time. We booked another restaurant but 2 days before out of the blue --bingo a confirmation. From thereon it it was a dream connecting with them. The attention to detail, service, presentation of the food was exceptional. The view was phenomenal, the wine pairing excellent and the service and attention by the Italian sommelier outstanding. Highlights the egg within an egg, the langoustine and the pigeon were delightful. An excellent place and while not cheap was not as expensive as some.More

I have eaten three times at JAAN under Kirk Westaway. The food is truly superb and beautifully presented. At S$110++ the set lunch comes with many pre and post meal goodies and is a lot better value than the now very expensive Les Amis and...Odette. My only gripe, we have never secured a table by the window. Perhaps you have to book months in advance.More

Jaan is an exclusive and posh restaurant so I would not dine there with anything less than a nice shirt, trousers and dress shoes. So certainly no shorts and flip-flops for sure.

Yes, there is an a la carte menu but we order the chef’s degustation menu which was excellent.
