With all the hustle and bustle of living in a big city like Singapore, it’s not always easy to make time for being a couple. You’re running from work to afterwork drinks, to the gym, not making time to hang out just the two of you. That’s why we’ve put together a list of the best romantic restaurants in Singapore. Text your partner, book a table, and get your romance on!
If you have to pick a romantic location, the 70th floor of a stunning hotel is a pretty good one. Jaan, the Cambodian word for bowl, is a Michelin-starred restaurant by the well-travelled English chef, Kirk Westway. Expect incredible service to match the beautiful views as you eat dinner on white table cloths in an elegant setting. And the food is pretty great too. The restaurant’s philosophy is “reinventing British”, with a strong focus on seasonality and natural flavours. Romantic restaurants in Singapore don’t come much better than this.
Rhubarb le Restaurant
If anyone knows how to do romance properly it’s the French. So where better to go when looking for romantic restaurants in Singapore than a French venue? Rhubarb le Restaurant is an intimate space with just seven tables, meaning you and your love will experience top class service. Food consists of one menu, with six courses and petit fours, designed to be taken by the whole table. You can experience delicious dishes like wagyu with onglet, beetroot quinoa, and zucchini flower, or the quintessential lovers’ dish, oysters, served with samphire, lemon, and wakame pearls. Bon Appetit!
Quite literally situated on the top of a cliff, this venue offers beautiful panoramic views across the sea, the perfect spot to gaze over with your date. Serving the food of another romantic nation, the Italian cuisine has been perfected by chef Simone Fraternali. Enjoy traditional dishes like pizzas and homemade pastas, or go for sharing dishes like whole sea bass with butternut, Taggiasca olive, and cherry tomato. After your meal, sit on the terrace with a glass of their carefully chosen wines and get immersed in the romance.
VENUE by Sebastian
Another chef that has honed his skills in various Michelin-star restaurants, Sebastian Ng has created a venue that is both casual and relaxed, making it the perfect place to come with your other half. With a stripped back interior and modern furnishings, this is a great restaurant for concentrating on the person you’re getting romantic with. Serving up contemporary European dishes, with eastern influences, you can expect dishes like grilled miso marinated beef with garlic bean sauce, and zucchini falafel with avocado yogurt, and beetroot relish. If you head along for lunch on a weekday, be sure to get there early, as you can experience a romantic meal with 15% off before 12.15. (Walk-ins only for this.)
Date night gone so well that you don’t want to go home? Then we recommend you go to Singapore’s most secret bar, Operation Dagger. Renowned for their amazing cocktails (they’ve been on the World’s 50 Best Bars list more than once), these guys whip up fantastic creations in a tucked-away basement bar featuring an amazing “light cloud” made up of hundreds of bulb. With just the right atmosphere for cosying up in a corner, and the perfect cocktails to get the love flowing, there’s no better way to end a great date. Is there?
