This guide is for the Michelin foodies. For your convenience, I tried to include key information of Singapore’s Michelin starred restaurants in one page.
That includes address, reservation number, opening hours, degustation prices (if available), websites and reviews (indiciated with a blue-colored link if available). Do note the prices of some restaurants, unfortunately, are likely to increase.
I suspect that most Singaporeans cannot be bothered at all about chasing stars, while I hear of foodies who are going down the ENTIRE list. Some of my friends are keen to try 2-3 of them – which they previously did not hear of and are curious about. (Actually, some can skip lah. LOL)
A friend estimated that to trek through the Michelin list, it would cost at least $2504++ for lunch, and $6602++ for dinner. Can I add, plenty of patience to queue as well?

Les Amis filled the void of fine-dining French restaurants in Singapore during the 1990s, and quickly became one of the most recognisable names in the industry. However, the group seemed to have shifted focus to their mid-tier restaurants such as Aoki, La Strada and Bistro Du Vin and casual dining concepts of Nam Nam and Pepperoni Pizza.
Chef de Cuisine Sebastien Lepinoy, who is protégé of Joël Robuchon, joined the restaurant in 2013. The Dinner Degustation Menu ($295) includes Oscietra Caviar from Kaviari with Cold Angel Hair and Sherry Vinegar, and Pan Seared Foie Gras and French River Eel accompanied by Cherry Fruits.

There was also inclusion of strong botanical elements – sustainably-sourced seasonal produce and vegetables, due to its unique location.
