Restaurant Madame Butterfly is part of the IndoChine Forbidden City at Clarke Quay in Singapore.
On the ground floor of Forbidden City is Bar CoCoon , and upstairs on the first floor is the restaurant Madame Butterfly .
The substantial building was originally the home and godown of a wealthy Chinese trader- and the style and architecture reflect this heritage. The interior rooms are of impressive dimensions and scale – with high ceilings, large open spaces and exposed timber beams and pillars. The restaurant rooms are home to an extensive collection of Chinese artwork, calligraphy and antique furniture and artifacts. Silk drapes hang from the walls and ceiling to add to the oriental charm and elegance of the interiors. And there are of course the signature chandeliers contributing their dramatic presence to the lighting of the rooms.
Restaurant Madame Butterfly serves comtemporary Chinese cuisine – an extensive selection of the classic Chinese dishes- and matched with wines, cocktails and other drinks served from the glass walled, water filled, main bar- and lighted with LEDs- for some striking visual effects amongst the traditional settings of the dining tables.
The restaurant is open for lunch Monday to Friday, and for dinner Monday to Saturday.
