Bistro Du Vin (Singapore) 01/2016

Bistro Du Vin, in a little lane off Scotts Rd. (Actually 1 Scotts Rd.), nestles between stablemates  the Italian Trattatoria  style Restaurant on one side and the fine dining Les Ami  on the other. All share one thing in common - the owners!
The venue is simply decorated with, as they put it, quirky memorabilia.
Bare marble topped tables, give the place a sort of French provincial feeling,
a relaxed French bistro style, added to by appealing menu face pages.

Chef Michael Suyanto offered us his favourite dish,
an ever so slightly too salty duck rillette, which we enjoyed with a crusty sliced baton and butter
before our entrees.
Sandra had pan seared fois gras with onion jam and spiced breadwhich was perfect.
My French onion soup, a dish which is surprisingly difficult dish to master, was excellent too. 
Sandra requested her Australian Angus beef rib eye to be warm blue. To be sure he got it as she wanted it the chef came to our table to discuss the dish and got it just right.
served with very good crisp chips.
My char grilled Iberian pork shoulder blade with mustard crust on a bed of potato  
was exceptionally moist and succulent.
We had a glass of a 2013 Sancerre (Loire) sav/blanc and a pleasant, unexceptional  2013 Pinot Noir
a super Grand Marnier souffle with vanilla ice cream.
I was more than pleasantly pleased to get a bill of about $210 which included 10% gratuity and 7% tax. 
Comments: We could not have wanted a better experience.
Score: 16.5/20
