Jaan Restaurant has been at the forefront of Singapore’s fine dining scene since it first opened on the 70th floor of Swissotel the Stamford hotel. Boasting panoramic views of the Singapore skyline, Jaan’s wow-factor starts before you’ve even taken your first bite. And when you do, you’ll be just as impressed.

The intimate 40-seat venue presents a creative French-inspired menu and numerous detours most notably to Italian and Asian cuisine. The venue features giant floor-to-ceiling windows, and the overall classic décor and soft lighting are met by a more contemporary edge as soon as you look up at the shiny silver installation on the ceiling.

If you don’t want to break the bank, a set 4-course lunch is available between 1.15pm and 2.30pm, priced from S$98. However, to really appreciate the whole Jaan experience, it’s best to book a table in the evening, and indulge in their ever-changing and seasonal menu, available in an 8-course choice that’s from S$268 without wine.

Standout dishes include the ‘confit rainbow trout’ cooked using Kurobuta pork with miso caramel and yuzu, the ‘Welsh lamb ‘Provencale’’, ‘hay-roasted pigeon’ with foie gras, and ‘artichoke ravioli’ cooked with ricotta and basil.

Jaan Restaurant is easy to find – it’s in one of the tallest hotels in Singapore. Take the MRT to City Hall or tell your driver to head to Swissotel the Stamford, then take the elevator to the 70th floor. Reservations are necessary (especially for dinner) and there a dress code applies (no shorts or sandals).
