Many of my friends are big fans of The Coastal Settlement (TCS). Some of them like it because of the lovely atmosphere, while others love it because it is a hidden gem in the east of Singapore.
I went there during a weekend, and it was indeed the perfect kind of place to go to unwind with friends.
The Coastal Settlement is huge – in fact, much bigger than I thought – and easily accommodates three hundred people.
This is a destination to dine in comfort and to simply forget about everything – Sentimental oldies loop softly in the background, crystal chandeliers hang from the low ceiling and cast warm light against the wooden furniture, scents of fresh roast and bakes fill the air…
There is this rustic charm that makes it all too possible to just sit here the entire day. And did I tell you about the array of displays within the restaurant too? Think drum sets, vespas and ice kachang machines.
The brunch menu is available on weekends and public holidays from 11am to 4pm. Apart from the popular brunch food like big breakfast ($24), steak and eggs ($36), and eggs benedict ($17), there are also main courses like roasted chicken with truffle fries ($25), truffle mushroom fettuccine ($21), nasi lemak ($16), and cheese burger ($26).
We shared a few items, and while they were decent, they were not fantastic. And given that The Coastal Settlement is a casual dining restaurant, we felt that the prices were rather steep.
Furthermore, the inaccessible location of the restaurant might put off people who do not drive.
That said, The Coastal Settlement is definitely worth visiting at least once. If I was staying in the east, this would be a frequent haunt. Otherwise, I’d probably drop by to have drinks and desserts for a great bonding experience.
