Enjoy sea view by the window!


Charcoal bread (Supplement $8++)
This is a must order item in Stellar! The BEST Charcoal bread that we had! Very crisp exterior with very fluffy interior, in addition to a very aromatic taste that will make u linger for more bread please.. It will be so wonderful if I can have such a nice bread for my breakfast every morning! Hahaha...


Complimentary First Amuse Bouche
(Salmon on a Baguette with Beetroot)



Complimentary 2nd Amuse Bouche
(Canelle Fruit with Capsicum)


Appetiser: Twice Baked Gruyere Souffle, Truffle Salad


This is a very popular appetiser as I noticed most of the tables ordered this. I guessed most people love to eat baked souffle especially twice baked! Double crunchy outside while fluffy inside. Complemented so well with the melted cheese! Cheese lovers will love this to the max!



Served alongside was this nice truffle salad!



Roast Kuhlbarra Barramundi, Kalamata Olives, Capsicum, Parmesan Pommes Dauphine

Parmesan Pommes Dauphine are cheesy crisp potato puffs made by mixing mashed potatoes with savoury choux pastry and deep-frying them. I really wanted to compliment their potato puffs, they were so good that I really wish to have the whole plate full of these! Haha.. The barramundi was quite tender, complemented very well with the potato puffs! Thumbs up for this dish!


Stellar Dessert Bar
Note: No more dessert bar since Sep 2016
Now only comes with 1 dessert in the set menu


Ricotta Cheesecake

Baileys Tiramisu
I was lucky that they have this baileys tiramisu in April that time. The alcohol was really strong and the cake was very soft. Overall it was incredibly great!!




White Chocolate Creme de Pot (Mini Pots)
I just love to see dessert in biscuit cone! Very nice white chocolate creme! Yummy!


Ginger Passionfruit Pudding (Shooters)
I don't like ginger. But the ginger passionfruit here made me kept went back for more!


Nicely Cut Fruits


Rum & Raisin Macarons


Strawberry Earl Grey Cake
This was my first time to try Earl Grey with Strawberry cake and it works pretty well! The only gripe which I do not like, it was served frozen.


Crepes Live Station
They have very nice crepes that comes with chocolate sauce inside the crepe. I think I had 5 of them! Hehe...

Bread & Butter Pudding with Cheese Sauce



Overall Impression: Window seat is for first come first serve basis as they don't take in special seat requests. However, they only have 1 table for 2 pax by the window. So it's not easy to get a window seat here for 2 pax unless you arrive very early. 

It's been 2 years since I've last visited Stellar and I'm glad that Stella has never disappoint me in terms of food and their dessert bar quality. I'm really impressed with their high quality desserts as there is no other place that can impress me with all their desserts till now. 

Main Course and Appetisers were equally good as well! I've nothing to complain about this place. Most fine dining food are costly & not filling. So I really like their concept of making the last course dessert to be a dessert bar for lunch. We get to try different variety of dessert & will not leave the restaurant still hungry. I hope more fine dining restaurants will have a mini dessert bar selection like Stellar too! It would be perfect if coffee or tea were included in the course as well. Fine Dining ambience with good and efficient service as well as high quality food and dessert bar! As they only have the dessert bar in buffet style on weekday lunch, so I will take leave specially in order to dine here. Hahaha.. Thumbs up Stellar!

Click HERE for an updated review on 14 April 2016!


Visited on 30th Oct 2014 (Thurs) during Restaurant Week Lunch. (Happened to be the Halloween week too!) 












2016 Price: 3 Course Set Lunch including Dessert Bar: $48++ per person 

2016 Price: 4 Course Set Lunch including Dessert Bar: $58++ per person 

Note: Only available from Mon-Fri, 12 - 2pm. (Stellar do not open for lunch on weekends)

Lunch Menu for April 2016 


Award-winning Stellar (Helmed by Group Executive Chef - Christopher Millar) serves modern cuisine with an artisanal mode of preparation. This is one of the highest restaurants that stands at a peak of 282 meters up high in Singapore, boasting a spectacular panoramic view of the City and MBS! An ideal place for business lunch, special occasions, a romantic date or marriage proposals!




I like the chic and posh restaurant with natural daylight ambience!















As we were early, we were seated next to the window to enjoy the scenic view! 




We started with bread paired with olive oil and balsamic vinegar as well as butter. The bread was served quite long after we were seated, and our appetizer came about a min after the bread. Thus, we had to start with appetizer first.





Appetiser: Crab & avocado tian, cucumber jelly & grape fruit salsa
My appetizer was really good with generous portions of crab meat that tasted a tad salty-sour, very stimulating on the palate! I didn't know that avocado complemented the crab meat so well! A very delightful appetiser for me!



Appetiser: Pigeon & Pork Rillettes, Pickles, Quince Jam, Toasted Baguette
My partner's appetizer was just "Ok" for me. There wasn't any distinct flavour or taste that left any particular impression. Probably because my own starter was too awesome. I felt that the items were too "detached" from each other, and it didn't feel like a complete dish as a whole.



Main Course: Crispy Skinned Barramundi Crunchy Cauliflower, Artichokes, Beetroot Polenta
I was really captivated by the pink crème fraiche, it has some sweet fragrance, loved it! Probably I'm a gal that naturally loves anything in sweet pink! I was quite impressed by the presentation of this simple barramundi. The super crispy skinned barramundi with very tender meat was done really well and was surrounded by the yummy crunchy cauliflowers! The chef was very innovative to use cauliflowers which were deep-fried till golden brown with a touch of crunchiness. How I wish there were more fried cauliflowers - they're super addictive! Thumbs up for this beautiful dish!

Enjoying my meal with a beautiful view... makes everything taste better ;)



Main Course: Stellar Signature Roast Chicken Breast, Orange, Parmesan cream, Bacon ash
This dish for my partner may look simple but it tasted great! I was tempted to think that the chicken breast would be dry or hard, but it turned out to be surprisingly tender! It felt like eating juicy ham rather than chicken breast. The sauce with bacon ash worked really well too, giving the chicken extra tanginess. One thing that "failed" though, was the orange... It was bitter and sour,  almost marred the overall taste of this dish... Maybe I should have left it as a garnish... 



Chocolate Indulgence Dessert Bar
A showcase of delectable desserts and seasonal treats.
Here you can find their Signature cakes, French Pastries, Petit Fours and Macaroons to complete an exquisite lunch affair













Peanut Mocha Shooters
Creamy but not too rich. Would have been perfect had it been chilled.




Garlic Macaroons
This is something you probably wont get to taste elsewhere... Maybe garlic lovers will dig this... Pungent at the first, but as the garlic taste wears away, there's a lingering buttery taste. I guess this is a "love it or hate it" item. 





White Chocolate Pralines




Strawberry Yogurt Shooters
Light and balanced, worked with the peanut-mocha shooter as a pair. And also would have been better if it was chilled. 


Red Velvet Cake
A little bit dry, but otherwise your standard sweet rich red velvet cake..




Black Forest Cake
Light and fluffy, nothing like your usual black forrest cake. So light, you can have more than one.. ;P  This was my favourite!!



Chocolate Mud Cake
No complaints about this. Rich and chocolatey, and definitely one of the most beautifully presented cakes. 




Chocolate Berry Lust Tart
Another one of my favourite! Chocolate tart with berries and golden pearls. The pastry was crispy, the chocolate filling was so yummy and the berries worked wonders to balance the flavour! And have you ever seen a more "expensive" looking tart?





Chocolate Banana Cobbler *Hot*
Crunchy, fragrant topping, savoury filling infused with the smell of hot bananas. A must-try!






Beautifully presented assortment of fruits, all looking fresh and tasted sweet and juicy. Noticed how they cut the watermelon? You can hold by the "handle" to enjoy the whole piece. Great idea! 



This is my 3rd Course - From Chocolate Indulgence Dessert Bar. Warning: They're addictive!!!



Flat White ($4.50++ each)
Single espresso shot topped with steamed milk and a thin layer of froth. You can top up $4.50++ for a Choice of Espresso, Long Black or Flat White & daily selection of tea.



Overall Impression: 

Service was good except the initial long wait for the bread & appetizer. The staff will give a brief introduction of the dish when served to you. The dessert bar items were very high quality that did not disappoint me except 1 to 2 items.  Both dessert bar items & fruits were replenished fast. 

Most fine dining food are costly & not filling. So I really like their concept of making the last course dessert to be a dessert bar. We get to try different variety of dessert & will not leave the restaurant still hungry. I hope more fine dining restaurants will have a mini dessert bar selection like Stellar too! It would be perfect if coffee or tea were included in the course as well. We were pretty satisfied with everything here that day! Will definitely visit Stellar again, if only for their dessert bar which is truly to die for! :-)
