Where to go for a romantic dinner? Here is our guide to Singapore’s 20 Most Romantic Restaurants.

Brasserie Les Saveurs


BRASSERIE LES SAVEURS


Brasserie Les Saveurs at The St. Regis Singapore is a beautiful restaurant. It exudes an air of elegance with the glittering crystal chandeliers and posh furnitures.

LA BRASSERIE


What we love most about La Brasserie (pictured in the first photo of this post), other than its exquisite offerings, is that it is effortlessly chic and a gorgeous place to dine in. This restaurant at Fullerton Bay Hotel is a venue that works perfectly for all occasions – be it a business luncheon with work associates, a gathering with your pals, or a romantic date with your partner.

The Duck Confit is one of the best in town, and something that I will return for again and again. The Lemon Tart is also very good. If it is your first-time there, make sure to try these two items.

JAAN


JAAN


JAAN restaurant at level 70 of Swissotel has been ranked among the best restaurants in Asia. It really deserves every accolade it has earned.

When you eat at one of the top tables, you are not just paying for the food. You’re also paying for everything that comes along with it: the location, the rent, the service, the plates, the view, and the ambience. JAAN has it all – the central location at City Hall; highest restaurant in Singapore; breathtaking view of the city’s skyline; knowledgeable servers who do a good job between the dining room and kitchen; and most importantly, good food.

A meal at JAAN is not cheap. I can’t afford to eat there all the time, but for a lavish meal like this, enjoyed with a amazing view – it is a fine way to splurge during a special occasion.

A meal at Skirt need not be expensive if you order wisely.

The White Rabbit Singapore


THE WHITE RABBIT


Housed in a beautifully restored old chapel, The White Rabbit is one of the most romantic restaurants in Singapore, and a place that I always recommend for a special date.

The White Rabbit used to be rather inconsistent in the past, but that is no longer the case with the return of Chef Benjamin Tan (the restaurant’s opening sous-chef) to helm the kitchen. The food is still pretty much classic European comfort food with familiar flavours, but the dishes are elevated to something special with the quality of ingredients.
