Gaston Burgundy Bistro is a new French restaurant in Keong Siak Street. The all-day bistro and wine bar
Gaston Burgundy Bistro & Wine Bar
Opened at the end of 2018, Gaston occupies a narrow and long shop house on the gentrified Keong Siak Street. It is not another French fine-dining establishment but a restaurant and bar with moderately-priced food and a relaxed setting.
Burgundy is a region which produces excellent wines. As can be expected, wine features prominently in many traditional Burgundy dishes. Gaston says that its food is “deeply rooted in the Burgundian heritage” and embraces “classic homemade specialties from the region”. The menu of Gaston is fairly simple; less than 10 mains are on the menu. However, the Burgundy classics – like oeuf en meurette, jambon persillé, escargots de Bourgogne and boeuf Bourguignon – are on the menu.
Below are pictures of pages of the Gaston menu and drinks list, which can also be viewed on the website of Gaston Burgundy Bistro.

Jambon Persillé, ham terrine with parsley, was a light and delightful starter.
Céleri Rémoulade was an interesting salad of celery root with mayonnaise sauce. It was quite a refreshing dish and enjoyable.
We selected the Filet de Barramundi, Ravioles and Boeuf Bourguignon for our mains.
The Charcoal grilled Barramundi had firm sweetish meat and crispy skin. There was a slight smokey flavour. The tangy tomato sauce combined well with the fish.
The cheese-filled ravioli was an interesting dish with a lovely shade of green. It had good textures and was tasty, and the topping

We had the Flan pâtissier for dessert. The vanilla French custard cream pie was quite unremarkable. Luckily, the vanilla gelato was nice.
Gaston at Keong Siak Street has an unpretentious bistro decor which made us feel like we were dining in a small nice neighbourhood restaurant somewhere in central France. The dessert we tried Gaston was a bit of a
