Waterfront Restaurants to watch Fireworks in Singapore

Where to watch Fireworks

There are many places where you can catch a glimpse of the fireworks, but they are more often than not packed with people who reserve their spots as early as the day before. We always prefer enjoying the spectacular display in comfort, and that is when we think of our favourite dining haunts which offer an unparalleled view all the same.

Here is our guide on waterfront restaurants to watch fireworks in Singapore.



Located at the historial Fullerton Waterboat House, Boathouse is an intimate restaurant to go for that special occasion. Enjoy a romantic dinner at the restaurant before heading up to Prelude – the rooftop bar on the third floor – for drinks and to enjoy the splendid view.

Catalunya Fullerton Pavilion


In the past two years, we have seen the opening of many Spanish tapas restaurants, and among them, Catalunya at Fullerton Pavilion is one of the fanciest spots to go for a glass of sangria and some tapas. The kitchen is helmed by the team formerly from elBuli Restaurant in Spain, so you can be assured that the food is always excellent.

A meal at Catalunya is as much about the atmosphere and view as it is about the classic tapas it offers. It is perfect for a night’s out with your girlfriends, or a special date with your partner.
