Had our wedding lunch and dinner here. Food was excellent, service was great, setting was nice and cosy, manager Saravana was very attentive and put us very much at ease. Our guests also enjoyed themselves thoroughly. There were a few minor lapses in communication but...we managed to sort them out or were still ok with it. We appreciate the overall experience and will return to dine again.More

Fine dining restaurant with well plated dishes. We had lunch with a set menu. There didn't seem to be much difference between the 3 course and 4 course menu If you're very hungry opt for the 4 course!The coffee and bread served as starter were...excellent.More

Went to Alma last weekend for their 5-course dinner at $198++. Made the reservation for Dec initially, then was told before our Dec date that the menu has been revised to over $300 for the festive menu and we could wait till after Jan 5...where it would be back to $178+. We waited and did as asked, and was even asked to pick our food options which I did (Hungarian goose). One day before our dinner on Friday, I get an email that says the menu has been updated and it is now $198++ with duck instead being offered. I decided against my better judgement not to cancel as this reservation had involved many calls from them and emails, and they also apologised with a free bottle of Bordeaux red (their house pour at $78 per bottle, retails around $25 in supermarkets so their cost is closer to $15). We arrived soaked because the restaurant's parking is outdoors and they did not have a shelter to receive guests at the front entrance which had 5-6 steps of stairs that were uncovered. In the heavy downpour, we had no chance. The hostess did not have any staff offering to shelter guests coming out of their cars in the wet. I had indicated that we do not eat foie gras and prefer not to eat sea urchin in my initial reservation. The 3 snacks offered, 1 had foie gras and the first course was sea urchin ! So far not so good. First course also came with a sorbet (not as a palette cleanser after but as part of the food), then second course came with an ice cream. Innovative but surely not back to back ? Main course sadly we both chose duck, and it was an unqualified disaster. The duck breast was undercooked, very pink and the fat unrendered. It was tiny sliver of duck, about 4 includes long and tapered from the thickest part at about 7mm to the thinnest part which was about 3-4mm. I am not kidding, it was such a thin sliver we didn't think they were serious. My partner took half a bite and left the rest, and the only thing they offered was to put it back in the oven which we declined because it was very fat anyway. Saving grace was the ode to the local culture with the tribute to Yan Kun toast (they put a foie gras toast in Chinese style paper bag) and the dessert which was light and delightful, a thin wafer coated with chocolate served on top of a white chocolate ice cream. Overall, the worst Michelin experience we have had, and we have clocked 13 Michelin stars in the last 4 months so we have had a lot to compare with.More

My heavenly experience in Alma began with the 100% Sangiovese red wine from San Felice Campogiovanni Brunello di Montalcino Riserva II Quercione – surely when I sipped the top 1% of all wines in the world, I knew I just had to savour the taste...and let it linger, and forget about finding the words to describe the taste of this exquisite vintage. Next came Alma’s signature potato bread that oozed with aroma with its warm texture that is perfect for the spread of Bordier Smoke Butter, leaving me to crave for more, and yes, I did end up eating all three pieces served in the beautiful wooden box laden with coffee beans. My first course of today’s lunch was the popular Crispy Tofu – when my teeth sank into the tofu with the blend of wild mushroom, truffle and foie gras, it was ecstatic – the mix between hard and soft for the palate is like consuming sweet music to the ears. When the second course Boston Losbter was served, it was so picturesque I halted to admire the dish – the Angel Hair pasta and broccoli formed the mountainous terrain with the top flattened by the lobster boulders while the Hijiki Seaweed projected the source of multiple waterfalls cascading down the mountains. The finale of the 3-course lunch ended with “Poire Belle Helene” with Alma’s new dessert – with the unique pouring of passion fruit juice with (jin xuan) tea onto the vanilla poached pears, served with 72% chocolate, whipped cream and roasted almonds. I was mesmerized by the balance of flavours (the bitterness in the chocolate that contrasted with the sweetness of the pear and cream) and balance of textures (the soft juice with tea contrasted the crunch of almonds and the firm pear). If you want to experience how food could be served to titilate your palate and senses, go to Alma.More

After trying out nearly all the fine dining places in SG, I would say Alma is by far the best restaurant in town, and excellent value for money. I just wish they had more vegetarian options to choose from so that we can visit more...often. Currently the vegetarian options are a bit limited, especially with only one option for the main course for lunch.More

Delicious food with consistent quality of food and service. The lobster angel hair pasta is always good so we have been returning every month! Their potato bread is also exceptionally good.

You have to trust a Michelin-Starred restaurant for this. Their freshly made signature potato bread from Alma by Juan Amador is outrageously good. Served as starter before the main course, the bread is served in a covered wooden box accompanied with coffee beans. A bite...promises to deliver a crisp on its surface while exuding an aromatic flavor and moist in the center. I’d say you will not require any additional spread of butter to enhance it. That’s how good the bread is. Of course you can be assured for the rest of the meal, it’s gonna blow your mind away. You can be sure to spoil for choices when it comes to the appetizers, main and desserts. Each serving is skillfully embellished that makes it so appetizing right before us. Above all, their service is first class - warm service, and it’s staff are very attentive to detail. Fantastic hospitality! Definitely will come back for more!More

We made the right choice to celebrate birthday at Alma. Great service from the staff. From amuse-bouche till dessert, every dish gave a variety of texture and surprise. Another highlight was the 2012 Z88.88 Napa Valley wine... lovely! Truly a memorable evening.

Awesome fine dining experience & ambiance! Attentive service by the staff from beginning to the end. With a simple One-Michelin menu, I had a 3-course lunch meal and the food was of good quality and delicious. Forget to take the Bread and butter that was...given, it was soft and yummy - love it! Great value for the price!More
