Dining at high-end restaurants is often associated with a hefty price tag and reserved for special occasions and celebrations. However, Gunther’s is changing the game by offering a luxurious lunch experience at fantastic prices. With their 3-course and 4-course menus starting from just S$58.00++ per person, Gunther’s provides exceptional value for a premium dining experience. Located on Purvis Street, Gunther’s offers the best value-for-money luxury lunch in the Bugis/City Hall area through their Express Lunch and Chef’s Seasonal Lunch Menu.

We opted for the Chef’s Seasonal 3-Course Lunch Menu, which includes 1 starter of your choice, 1 main of your choice, 1 dessert, and petit fours.

Gunthers -Bread

Complimentary bread is served before our meal begins.

For appetizer, I had the signature Cold Angel Hair Pasta with Truffle and Caviar, while my friend selected the Gratinated Onion dish. The Cold Angel Hair Pasta with Truffle and Caviar is a light and refreshing dish, featuring delicately thin pasta infused with the rich aroma of truffle oil. The caviar adds a luxurious touch, providing a perfect balance of flavors.

Gunthers- Gratinated Onion

While the Gratinated Onion dish is a savory delight. The dish features tender onions baked to perfection with a rich, golden crust. The dish combines the sweetness of the onions with a creamy, flavorful gratin, resulting in a comforting and indulgent appetizer.

Gunthers- Grilled Half Maine Lobster

For the main course, I chose the Grilled Half Maine Lobster served with Béarnaise sauce and pomme allumette. The lobster was incredibly fresh, with firm, sweet meat complemented by the rich, tangy sauce.

Gunthers-Roasted Iberico pork jowl

My friend opted for the tender Roasted Iberico Pork Jowl at Gunther’s. The dish is delicately prepared with a blend of herbs and served with a flavorful raspberry and hibiscus sauce, offering a unique combination of savory and sweet notes. The pork jowl itself is cooked to perfection, tender and juicy, complemented by the vibrant flavors of the sauce.

The Fine Apple Tart “aux Dragées” is a beautifully crafted dessert featuring a delicate, buttery tart filled with sweet, spiced apple compote and topped with crisp, caramelized sugar. It is paired with Havana Rum Raisin Ice-Cream, which adds a rich, creamy, and slightly boozy touch to the dish. The combination of textures and flavors offers a luxurious and satisfying end to your meal.

Gunthers- Petit Four

Lastly, we enjoyed our choice of tea with the Petit Fours, though coffee is also available. Overall, Gunther’s offers a lunch experience that is truly worth the price. It’s an excellent choice for those seeking a top-notch dining experience without breaking the bank. Having been here twice, I can attest that both the food and service continue to be as impressive as I remembered.
