We finally managed to book this place for dinner. It's usually very full. The decor is simple and classy.

We had the tuna tartare with caviar, foie gras, and pizza, with white wine. I guess it was good we decided to share everything because the food was very rich (tasty rich).

We would come back to try the other selections. It is great that new and good restaurants have sprung up again in Dempsey!

we went there on Labour day and restaurants were mostly filled -its a beautiful high ceiling colonial room.
Overall service staffs are very good - they are mainly experienced staffs from what we noticed. The food are very good also except for the Fish Tacos - i wouldn't recommend. the taco was a little soggy - and the taste are not that great.

From the welcome, to the service from Joey, the prompt arrival of share plates, then just the right break before our mains of salmon (with a divine truffle jus) and ricotta pasta, then a decent break before yummy desserts. A pavlova and a frangipanni tart shone as did crab dumplings and calamari at the outset. I asked for the Chef to cook the salmon as he felt it should be. A winning touch, unasked the waitress reports back the Chef recommends medium on this dish and I concurred happily. Wine is never cheap in Singapore, so the quality of a clever wine list is appreciated with a rousanne marsanne blend from the Barossa a standout. A French Pinot by the glass was a flavoursome whilst light way to end the dinner. And all this before I mention the room, wow. Just wow. A converted cookhouse, literally, that served the barracks during the war. It now houses this modern day Californian influenced eatery, inside with a clean outdoorsy feel of white and plants and big lights hanging from high, high ceilings. Also under the same roof, a bar, a tempura counter and stools, plus the divine Peranakan hit, Michelin-starred Candlenut. Dempsey Cookhouse is flawless with a fresh approach to Singapore dining and a fabulous ambience. The tables turn over throughout the night. Don't worry about dining windows, because this machine is so well-oiled that it all works seamlessly. Thank you Chloe, Clifton, Joey firstly for introducing yourselves and all the team for a first-rate performance. Singapore just went up a notch with this casual yet sophisticated cuisine and venue. Barely two or three months old and already smoothly in its groove. Uber cool.

Happily got a table when we went by at lunch time without a reservation. Cool and pleasant place with the high ceilings and generous table spacing and setting.
Lunch menu had ala carte and several set lunches with a wide choice of dishes.

Service was good except for the occasional jar of 'no problem' reply by one or two wait staff. If there is one training tip for all service staff it would be , do not ever say 'no problem' to a customer. If there was a problem, the customer would likely not be there in the first place.

Otherwise table service was good. The kitchen service was poor. Not wanting a full lunch, we opted for 2 al carte main course items and it took perhaps 20-25 minutes for it to be served and when it was ready, it was taken to the next table. We caught the attention of the staff and finally had our lunch.

Beef tenderloin and the beef burger were good and the pavlova dessert was excellent.
