We would be trying their signature dishes for the evening.
French Cuisine is well-known for their exquisite taste and pretty presentation (not to mention the small portion and exorbitant cost *rolls eyes*). If you think that you are going to travel all the way to The Punggol Settlement just to burn a big hole in your pocket, do rest assured because you will be getting quality food at an affordable pricing.
Take a look at their regular menu as a gauge for your dining budget:
I seriously think that guys can consider arranging a dinner date at this place because the pricing wise is considered mid-range and you can stroll along the beach afterwards.
It would be rather romantic to spend some quiet time together as couples.
As for the menu, I would highly recommend them to incorporate photos into their menu because not everybody can imagine how the dish looks like and hence it would be very helpful for noobs to French Cuisine like myself.
Appetiser – Bread
Moist, Warm Bread was served as appetisers.
I personally loved the raisins one. The butter one was rather fragrant too 🙂
Grilled Crab Meat Angel Hair (SGD11.90++)
Truffle Angel Hair topped with jumbo crabmeat infused with Chorizo Oil finished off with Salmon Roe

The plate looked rather empty when this dish was served to us – perhaps they can still improve on the dish’s presentation.

24-hour Slow Braised Pork Belly & Kurobuta Pork Tenderloin served with Roasted Cauliflower Puree, Vegetables, Grape Mustard and Black Pepper Sauce

King of The Sea (SGD22++)
Miso infused torched King Salmon and King Prawn on a bed of Assorted Vegetables Ragout
|King of The Sea (SGD22++)|
We were told that all seafood was air-flown directly from Norway and no frozen seafood was used at all. This accounts for the freshness in their seafood ingredients 🙂
I personally prefer the King of The Sea to the Horizon Pork 2 Way as the seafood tasted very fresh and it is more value for money as well.

Short Crusted Pastry Layer with Valhona White Chocolate Mousse, Lemon Curd, Orange Creme Anglaise, sprinkled with White Chocolate Soil
A meal is never complete without satisfiable desserts!

|Intrigued by the Edible Bonsai…|
A mixture of Vanilla Cream with Cranberry Juice and Apple Compote was buried beneath the chocolate ‘soil’.
I personally find this dessert too creamy and would prefer if they can replace the cream with something more tangy – like yoghurt or sorbet.
|Enough selfies, start eating!|
Further to the above, Sweetie Muffin suggested that perhaps the restaurant should create some dishes that are beach-themed since the restaurant was located along the beach. Garden By The Bay might be novel but having something that is more themed towards the surrounding environment would be ideal in this case 🙂
|Xmas Tree Selfies 🙂|
Horizon Bistronomy is worth a visit especially when you are looking for affordable and yet decent-tasting French Cuisine.
|Nice Night View|
I will consider returning to this place if I have a car + chauffeur and when the weather is pleasant and not too wet 🙂
