From the name itself, one can easily tell that Fern & Kiwi is a New Zealand-themed restaurant. Located in vibrant Clarke Quay, Fern & Kiwi features a bar and live band on the ground floor and a chic, quiet, fine dining setting on the second floor.
New Zealand welcome
It has been in operation for over a year now, with a recent push to promote the restaurant part of the business:

Yes, there are ferns
The menu offers a selection of New Zealand food, wines and beers, seeking to bring the taste of New Zealand to Singapore diners.
When we think about New Zealand, green pastures, beautiful mountains and free roaming livestock comes to mind.
This is also the kind of gastronomy experience Fern & Kiwi seeks to bring out, focusing on fresh, pure and all-natural New Zealand local ingredients and produce.
The meats in the restaurant are imported from New Zealand and are all free-ranged. There is less fat and marbling, but it gives a leaner texture and is healthier to consume.
They taste just as good. I particularly love the meat dishes.
Price is on the steep side, but you pay for quality.
The restaurant pays attention to the smallest details in their menu. I was pleasantly surprise when the general manager shared with us that they import pure air cubes from New Zealand to serve with their premium bottles:
Imported New Zealand Pure Ice!
