    what's your budget? quite impt to know otherwise u'll end up with a list of very expensive places...

    if you're into steak, my fave is still the Tavern, near Mohd Sultan. they got the best beef in singapore IMHO. but if you're going for the good cuts, can get very expensive...

    Thanks for your ideas!

    Times are bad, so can leave places like Equinox out

    Was thinking of Shashlik too but also wanted to see if there are other places you ppl can suggest.

    Where exactly is the Tavern at?

    actually the equinox is really not that expensive. a normal meal with appitizers and the main course cost around $250 for 4. its ala carte style. i brought my mum there for her bday just this past tuesday and i must say that the view there is fantastic. can bring your camera there. provided your gf allows that.hehe

    it's at the corner of River Valley Road and Mohd Sultan Rd, at the row of shophouses there. can't really miss it, just at the turning when you turn into the nightspot area.

    She's my gf for 7 yrs oredi. Serious one. Not play-play gf hor...

    We both enjoy food. We've will go all over the island to try good food from hawker centres to restaurants. I think this is the cause of the problem too. We have been to so many places that when it comes to special occasions, I can't think of a place where we haven't been to.

    We do go to Petals quite regularly too. As mentioned, the food there is cheap and good. The service there is good too.

    do they have fondue over there?

    btw, pete's place at the basement of hyatt isn't bad also.

    or Cafe 211 at Holland V. Neat candle-lit-roof-top dining ambiance.

    well if you don't go for the steak-by-weight type of meal (which is expensive, a decent size cut will cost like $70+), it's quite ok. they generally serve continental cuisine, mix of English and Swiss. their raclette cheese is to-die-for, and got very interesting range of appetizers as well and i think their menu changes quite often. a nice carpet-bag steak is around $36 sing and prime rib should be around the same price also, depending on how thick you order. i know quite a few gourmets and food-lovers who frequent the place. think there's also another outlet at East Coast road but not sure where. atmosphere wise is quite nice, very cosy and the attendants are very polite. overall one of my fave places to makan a good meal.

    yup, got!!! very good one some more but quite expensive... can't remember the price though

    i've been to Lawries too and their prime rib is not bad but i think Tavern and Morton's is way better. Lawries is a bit overrated... other than their spinning salad thing. for the price you pay at Lawries, might as well go Morton's, or Just Steak (never been there myself though). but IMHO Tavern is still better... cheaper and can eat more exotic stuff.

    ok in case anyone is wondering, no i'm not working for Tavern, just think that they really serve good food.
