Skyve Elementary Bistro & Bar

Skyve is not where you expect you'd find, when you look at the photos, it seems like in a very cool hip environment. But, it's not, it is closed to Orchard Road but it is secluded enough to be seen from main road.

I fell in love instantly with the interior design and its furnishing, it gives you that cool vibe. It certainly warrants another visit, especially during the Live Music nights, will be fun to come here with a group of friends.

I was surprised when we were having brunch to see a family, few couples, a group of friends already there and by lunch time, even more crowds were streaming in. Why I was surprised in the first place? Coz, I never thot, a venue quite secluded like Skyve could have quite a crowd. The street leading it in from main road is next to a school, and going further in, then you will find it around a some sort of school complex. So, it's unusual area to find something as hip and modern as this.

There were only 3 staff during that brunch shift, but, they were courteous and still prompt in serving you.
Brunch was great, the quality of the dishes didn't disappoint and the portion was just right.

Sometimes, what impressed me most from a restaurant is when they paid attention to small details. Skyve proved to be one of them; from the Fiji mineral water tin holder, the fresh flower on the table, providing 2 dessert plates and cutleries without being asked (we only had 1 slice of cake)

Anyone who sees their interior would be impressed and excited to return here, after our meal, I understand why Skyve has regular patrons despite its location.

Who doesn't love this col. combo, the aquamarine against white and black...This area can also double up as private area with folding glass door closure
