Prive Grill

A modern European steakhouse that has something for everyone. Housed in a beautifully sleek, modern setting with leather seats and white tablecloths overlooking the marina at Keppel Bay through large-paned windows, groups can be sure to spend a relaxing evening soaking up the atmosphere. Featuring the first Josper Grill in Singapore, this indoor grill-oven allows meat, seafood and vegetables to retain maximum flavour and moisture, such as double-rib lamb rack or succulent French young quail. Dishes are artistically presented, and portions are generous; desserts are also to die for, so bring a few friends to share the love.

I wasn’t aware that the day I made a reservation for was actually their last day of service before they begin construction work and will apparently be re-opening in October 2017 but under a different name. However, I think this made our dinner and the occasion all the more special!

My parents and I went for the two-course (starter and main) dinner set menu, and my dad and I had ours with the wine pairing. For the starter, I went for the Cold Seafood Platter, which required a minimum of two people, so my dad and I shared this. The platter came with oysters, muscles, scallops, prawns, crab, and other shellfish. It also came with four sauces: a light and refreshing lemon and cucumber, a sweet chili sauce, an avocado mayonnaise, and a tomato sauce. All of them were nice except the sweet chili, which I personally didn’t like because I didn’t find it went with the seafood. Each sauce went with a different shellfish but the most neutral and enjoyable was the lemon and cucumber because it was acidic, which goes well with seafood.

For my main, I went for the 350g T-bone Steak. My preferred cooking for steak is medium rare because I find that the meat continues to cook through even after it is taken off the heat and by the time it is served, it has cooked even more. This cut of steak was served with sliced potatoes and carrots in a red wine balsamic sauce and the centre of the steak was still nice and red when cut into. However, I didn’t like that the sauce was spread all over the underside of the steak because it was actually rather salty. I also prefer my steak without any sauce or dressing so that I can truly taste the meat and I find that a good cut of meat doesn’t require any additional flavouring.

Overall, the food was good in terms of the serving size. They were very generous with the cut of steak, for mine and for my dad’s orders. It was a bit of a struggle to finish it but an enjoyable process! Our starter was also pretty large and had a good variety of seafood, which I thought made it worthwhile.

At the end of our meal, I was presented with a slice of Red Velvet Cake with ‘happy birthday’ written in chocolate sauce on the plate, a sparkler that was lit at our table, and a polaroid picture of me and my parents. I thought this was a lovely gesture, given that I indicated it was a birthday celebration when I made the reservation on the phone. When the polaroid picture was ready, it was placed into a card that was signed by the service team, which I thought was an extra detail that made it even more special. This was truly sweet of the team for putting an effort into making a celebration more memorable!

I am normally not a fan of red velvet but this cake was actually not bad. I liked that it looked compact and dense but wasn’t actually very filling. It came as a three-tier slice of cake with a chocolate sponge cake dyed red, rich chocolate layers in between, a lovely cream cheese frosting and sprinkled with desiccated coconut.

Overall, I had a pleasant experience dining here and would love to come back when they re-open in October 2017 to see how it has transformed physically and conceptually in terms of the new restaurant. The views at Keppel Island are stunning, with a gorgeous spread of yachts docked, the sunset skies, and the calm waters. It’s an ideal location for a celebratory meal or a romantic night out.
