Pronounced “mee-reyo”, the French restaurant is named after a celebrated poem by Nobel Prize winning poet Frederic Mistral written in 1859. Mireo is a story about forbidden love between Mireo, a daughter of a rich farmer, and Vincent, a basket weaver. The poem is Mistral’s tender tribute to his beloved Provence, and the restaurant is another avenue where Raffles carries on their tradition of honoring  great writers.

With a Provençal-inspired poet taking the lead in the ambiance, Mireio's Chef de Cuisine Nicolas Cegretin masters its culinary offerings, the elegant brasserie-style restaurant serving specialty dishes born of traditional French-cooking techniques and Mediterranean influences.
