Being a restaurant that revolves around French cooking. it's safe to say that most of Bistro Richard's exquisite dishes -from appetisers to main courses to desserts and wine; entails a certain French element.

In terms of their main courses, Bistro Richard harbours an extensive array of chops and steaks ranging from a selection of poultry, pork, beef and fish, to pizzas, pastas and rice, as well as snacks if you are just here to unwind with a glass of wine or cocktail. For chicken chops, one might wish to opt for their Coq Au Vin -tender succulent chicken braised with rich red wine burgundy, along with beef bacon, mushroom and broccoli; while beef aficionados can opt for Bistro Richard's Char-broiled Fillet Mignon, steak served with truffle-tinged mashed potatoes, asparagus and ratatouille in a Cognac-laced morel sauce. Recommended medium rare or rare. The lamb dishes (Braised Lamb Shanks or Oven Baked Lamb Rack) are also worth a note as well.

Either that or have a go at their pastas. Their Spaghetti Vongole is quite the palate-pleaser.
