Yummy rosti!

Marche provides an unique dining experience, whereby you do not simply order and wait for your food to come. It is like a food market, where patrons are given a Marche card to make orders for the food they want at the different stalls there. After eating, then the patrons will proceed to the cashier to 'check out' and pay for what they have eaten. Something different from the usual restaurants that you patronize, right? And what's more, the restaurant is exquisitely decorated with a Swiss Cottage theme. There are wooden tables and chairs, curtains and small windows and even the stalls are decorated as such as well.

A large variety of food is provided at the stalls at Marche and it is quite fun to walk around and see what they have. Their food is usually displayed in the glass counter and the staffs make the food on the spot, hence you do not have to worry about eating cold food! The first time I went Marche was when I was 14 and my netball coach decided to treat my netball team to lunch at Marche. That meant that we could order as much as we wanted to! Imagine our joy! We simply ordered something from each stall available there. That was when I fell in love with rosti. It is made of fried shredded potato and you can add toppings such as sausage and salmon. I love both toppings as they go well with rosti! And one thing that needs to go well with rosti- sour cream. Remember to ask for extra servings of that!

The prices of the food here are quite steep so I always have the usual 2 dishes- rosti and crepe. The crepe is quite big, slightly bigger than a 6-inch sandwich at Subway. You can choose the toppings to go with it, such as mushroom or ham. The sauce is heavenly! I am not very sure what the sauce is made of but it certainly taste good with the crepe! Do ask for extra sauce as well! If you are feeling extravagant and willing to spend on your next trip to Marche, do get the pork knuckle! It is fried to a crispy golden brown and the meat was succulent. I heard that the pizza and mushroom soup were good too, but every time I go Marche, I would be tempted to order my usuals and feel too full after that to order anything else.

Marche outlets are usually located in town areas and there is one in somerset 313! Do head there for a serving of rosti, it is definitely worth it and you will surely enjoy your dining experience there!

overpriced but average food

I first visited Marche with my dad when I was really young, so I couldn’t remember much. One thing that left a deep impression on me was the interior of the restaurant. Its swiss cottage theme and soft lighting made the restaurant look very cosy.

In the recent years, I’ve made multiple trips to Marche for birthday celebrations. While the ambience at Marche always puts me at ease, the food doesn’t really appeal to me. I’ve never had a bad meal there, but I must mention that their rosti and savory crepes are pretty decent.

I would return to Marche again, but I wouldn’t make frequent visits as their food isn’t the most affordable.

The creamiest, meanest tiramisu

I’ll never forget the tiramisu from Marche Restaurant. It was so amazing. The other food items were good as well, but the tiramisu was simply unforgettable. It was creamy, sweet, with a rich coffee flavour. The cream is thick and smooth, and it tastes so fresh without an artificial sugary aftertaste.
The biscuit is soft after being soaked well in coffee and doesn’t fall apart when you scoop it up. The mix of cream and soft coffee biscuit makes the whole dessert extremely appetising.

Marche is a unique restaurant where you purchase a card before entering, then using the credits in the card to purchase food from various stalls such as the crepe stall or Italian stall. The beef lasagna was tasty and was of the right softness, but it would have been much better if it came in a larger portion with more meat. It isn’t the highlight of my meal, but it was decent.

I wouldn’t go out of my way to visit Marche unless I have a craving for their tiramisu, as the food is quite average and the quality is like that of many other restaurants. The prices are also not extremely attractive, but I wouldn’t mind going back for a second visit.

Love the whole Swiss concept and freshness!

I was attracted by the pretty display and aroma of freshly baked breads and cakes at Somerset 313, before I decided to head down the stairs into the real restaurant at the basement. I remember how surprised I was when I saw how the restaurant is like, it was like none other I have seen before. The whole theme is essentially the Swiss Marketplace concept with individual stalls scattered in the middle of the restaurant. Wooden furnitures, curtains half covering the fake windows, small cushions and photo frames of cottage life (i.e. cows,cottages) hanging on the walls as well as lots of fresh colourful fruits and vegetables!

It is the prettiest when it is nearing the Christmas season, the decoration is really a feast for the eyes (really complements the whole decor). The dining process is different from the usual restaurants, you are given a Marche card which you would pass it to the stalls to be 'swiped' for purchase of food and when you leave the restaurant, you can then pay for the total amount on that card.

What really appeal to me was how fresh and delicious the food is! Most of the food are prepared on the spot guarantee freshness and the process can be eye-opening. The Swiss Rosti is a definite must try! The savory and sweet crepes(homemade sauces and they change the sauces once a while) are delicious too, as well as the chicken leg (only available on weekdays noon) and their prawn with red chili pizza ( I personally cannot finish on my own, best to share with another person). They have delicious mushroom soup and their cakes are delicious too!

The prices are a bit on the pricey side but usually I can do with just a dish or so, maybe a rosti with a sweet crepe or cake. Personally I cannot finish the savory crepe on my own as well, it is too much a portion. The portions are quite big and filling and the food there are quite exquisite so I find it quite worth it.

Take note to go earlier for dinner though, it gets crowded and night and usually you would have to queue up for seats. During mornings and noons are quite spacious, it is a big restaurant afterall. Absolutely love the wood decor and soft lights, it make the whole place feels so homely and cozy. It is a good place to chill with friends and is family friendly; it has a kids corner for them to play while the adults chat.

It is a restaurant worthy a visit, whether to dine or to catch up with friends, or even to just go there for their desserts.

A must try!

It was just the beginning of this year that I had my first try at Marche -Somerset313 and I have fell deeply in love with the restaurant ever since.

From the overall outlook of the restaurant to the display, quality, and variety of food, the restaurant satisfied my every need and wants. The restaurant is designed to have a sense of cottage feel, and is hence furnished with wooden furniture, checkered cloths and yellowish lights, giving customers a very homely feel. The availability of a "play area" for kids also makes it a safe and suitable restaurant for families to patronize.

Dining at Marche is also an experience unlike most restaurant. The style is somewhat like a buffet (designed like a marketplace), except that we are required to pay for every dish purchased instead of just one lump sum. Upon entrance, customers will each be given one card that is for ordering the dishes, and only paid for after the entire meal. When ordering each dish, the staff will request for the card for it to be credited first. Only upon leaving, will customers be required to queue at the cashier and pay for the total amount credited from the card given.

As for the food, a personal favourite and a definite must-have would be their salmon rosti. At a price of around $17, the smoked salmon given was of a generous portion and the rosti is well cooked as well! I also like to add a little sea salt and as well as sour cream to my rosti. Some of course may find it too salty for their liking. The duck meat pizza however will not be on my list of "must-trys" as I found the duck meat too sweet to go well with the salty taste of its pizza crust. Personally, I found the taste weird. But it is definitely subjective as I have friends who liked the pizza.

Healthy diners need not worry about having to break their dietary habits as there is a variety of vegetables to choose from when customizing a healthy salad for themselves! There are also a variety of yummy sauces to choose from to glaze over their salad for added taste.

The prices on each meal may be pretty steep, each customer should be prepared to spend at least $20 and above to truly enjoy the meal at Marche. They do serve awesome desserts, especially their chocolate and strawberry cakes! A cheaper alternative would be to catch the lunch which consists of an indicated dish and homemade lemon tea for less than $10.

Pricey food - but pleasant dining experience

I had the opportunity to visit the branch at Orchard for a friend's birthday celebration, and I would say that it is a very 'atas-looking' place for dining!
I remembered queuing up for more than half an hour for the tables (it was evening at that time on a weekend).
One of the things that make them different is their convenient paying mode. Instead of having to waste time paying each dish per order, we were issued a "card" each that would be credited for every item we order. We would then hand the card over to the cashier before exit and pay the total amount that was accumulated in the card.

As for the food, I would have to say it's very subjective. Some have huge portions and are ideal to share amongst friends (unless you have a big appetite). I remembered ordering a plate of spaghetti that didn't turn out too well for me. It tasted "floral" and I had a hard time swallowing. (I really tried my best in finishing it as it was not cheap!)

However, I love their thick mushroom soup with bread crumbs. It's almost wheat-like, and tasted really good. Surprisingly, it's filling to the stomach even after one cup!

Overall, its a good place to chill out with friends or hold birthday celebrations as the ambience is pleasant.

Much marche!

Two years ago was the first time I visited Marche. The branch I went to was the one located at Vivo City’s top floor. I will never forget the experience I had that evening.

We went there to celebrate our friend’s birthday in the evening. When the pax finally gathered, we all went hunting for the food we wanted to try. The good thing about Marche is that we could all pick a couple of dishes each and share. I prefer this kind of eating rather than just ordering one main dish for each person. By sharing, it enhances the experience and makes everyone feel closer.

While walking around and ordering food, I noticed how the tables were nicely situated. They were spread out with just the right amount of space in between each other for people to pass through. Don’t you hate how some cafes or restaurants have tables placed so close to each other just to form more space to cater to more customers? I hate it. Other than that, I think the layout of each individual stall was good too.

Overall, other than the price being a little steep, I think it is a great place to hang out with friends, accompanied with nice food and music.

Cosy and feel like at home

I prefer 313 Somerset to VivoCity when going to Marche for dinner. The ambience is better and the place is cosy. You have to walk down the stairs or take a lift to go down a level after receiving Marche card. The card is for food purchasing and save the trouble and waiting time for cashiering. I love the Rosti garnished with sour cream and chopped spring onion. I find it expensive to add the sausage and having Rosti alone is good enough for me. Lightly seasoned with salt and pepper, it is pan fried with a good quantity of olive oil. You will find the crisp on the outer layer, soft and moist in the middle. It is my favourite dish and I will order it on every visit.

Desserts will be Creme Bulee and Chocolate Cake. You may add milk to the Creme Bulee I find the rum is too strong, but don't add to much if not the rum flavour will be gone. I think Chocolate Cake is better as it is less sweetened and the chocolatey taste is really good. I will definitely go back again to try everything!

Rosti loving!

Marche is the first name that comes to my mind when I’m looking for Swiss cuisine. Marche has made the dining experience very pleasant by introducing a card system instead of paying for every dish you order. Since Marche has various stalls serving different food from rosti to risotto to seafood to desserts, it’s easier to walk around in search of food for your table with just a card instead of carrying your wallet around. This makes the overall dining experience a really enjoyable and fuss-free process since it’s just a tap on your card for every order you make. And then, when you’re leaving Marche you pay the final bill at the cashier.

In terms of their food, my favourite would be rosti, which is basically shredded potato. It goes perfectly with the sour cream. And for add on options you could get sausage or salmon. I love their chicken cheese sausage or their pork sausage since I’m not that big a fan of salmon. For dessert, I love their crepe with banana, strawberry and a scoop of ice-cream with chocolate sauce. As for drinks, I usually go for homemade lime juice. Their ice-lemon tea and their beers are also pretty famous. Do head down to Marche to check them out, you’d love them as much as I do.

Totally Different Dining Experience!

If you were to dine in Marche, it is very much different from a normal food court in Singapore. In Marche, every diner will be issued a card which is used to scan and then you pay the bill when you leave the restaurant! However, do not lose the card or else you’d have to pay the fine of $100 for the loss of card. Their ambiance is a Swiss setting, where their main theme is more of a market and using wood as furniture and setting.

Marche is famous for their Rosti (potato shreds). It is served together with sour cream and you can have added smoked salmon or even sausages. It is their signature dish and its one of their best seller dished around. Other than Rosti, you should try their mushroom soup as the soup is thick and tasty. As you drink the soup, you can taste mini bits of mushroom in the soup itself! Even I'm not a soup lover, but it has made me enjoy the taste of mushroom! If you are a meat lover like me, you can order grilled chicken, pork knuckle, or even steaks etc from the grill bar! They are perfectly marinated and grilled to perfection!

Uniquely Refreshing Dining

Marche is certainly a place to be patronized if you are looking for a fresh, refreshing concept for lunch or dinner. I personally dine at either the outlet at 313 Somerset or at Vivo City on a regular basis of at least once a month. I am definitely impressed with the way the Marche system works. Cashless dining for one is a fine example. Upon entry, every patron is given a card whereby he or she has the flexibility and convenience to patronize any stall without the need and hassle of finding change to make payment. This unique system also allows diners to keep track of their purchases at any one time by scanning their issued cards at automatic, computerized systems available. Most importantly, this method of payment also means that food handlers need not handle money simultaneously and is definitely more hygienic.
My recommendations? Go for the cream of mushroom soup definitely and the famous rosti (shredded potatoes) and pork sausage if you are looking for something filling and savory. As I normally visit marche in a family of five, we normally purchase around 2 to 3 plates of rosti , a plate of pizza , 2 bowls of soup and a bowl of salad, great for sharing ! Word of caution though , do make sure you go early (there are no reservations if I’m not mistaken) as queues tend to get insanely long , especially at the Vivo City branch on weekends , during the peak lunch hour period
