Guide to Robertson Quay Restaurants

Robertson Quay Guide

While Robertson Quay may not get as much recognition as Clarke Quay or Boat Quay, there are many good restaurants, cafes and shops in the neighbourhood that are worth mentioning. Here is a guide to restaurants in Robertson Quay.


Craving for Japanese BBQ after reading my post on Gyu-Kaku restaurant? Aburiya at The Quayside is one of the Yakiniku places in Singapore that is worth checking out. Read: Wagyu beef heaven. What are you waiting for?

Bar Bar Black Sheep Robertson Quay

Bar Bar Black Sheep

Bar Bar Black Sheep (bbbs) is one of those places that you would find it hard to categorise. Is it an upmarket coffee shop? Or is it a cafe-bar with al fresco (read: no air conditioning) dining? It doesn’t really matter. Expatriates love the place.

If you have not been there before, the cafe-bar (or whatever you want to call it) houses three different stalls that serve Thai, Western and North Indian cuisine – helmed by independent chefs. And of course, there’s a bar where you can get some drinks like a nice cocktail or beer.

Bacchus Bistro & Bar

Another place that I find it hard to categorise is Bacchus Bistro & Bar. The menu is quite diversified and you can get things like Chicken Schnitzel, Pork Knuckle, Japanese Salmon Steak, UK Fish & Chips, Pasta and Pizza. Is it a German restaurant or a German wine cellar that offers fusion food?

Squid Ink Pasta

Bella Pizza

Bella Pizza is the restaurant that most people mention when you ask them what their favourite Italian restaurant is. It serves one of the best pizzas in Singapore.

#01-14 Riverside View
Tel: +65 6734 0139

Bella Pasta

It probably doesn’t make sense that Bella Pasta is just a few units away from Bella Pizza. But no one’s complaining since we can have the best of both worlds.

Bella Pasta has a very different menu from Bella Pizza. Besides a wide range of pasta, it also serves meat, seafood and fish main courses. Definitely worth a try!

Boomarang Bistro

Boomarang Bistro & Bar

Boomarang Bistro is one of the few Australian restaurants in Singapore – it was set up by a true Aussie owner and his chef with the aim of introducing their interpretation of authentic Australian cuisine to Singapore. It has reasonable prices and the portions are huge. Most importantly, it is a kids-friendly restaurant.

Bon Gout

Even though I have been to Robertson Quay many times, Bon Gout has never been on my must-eat restaurants radar. I think it’s mainly because I was always distracted by my favourite brunch at Epicurious Cafe.

From what I’ve heard, Bon Gout is a small Japanese eatery which serves pretty decent Japanese food at affordable prices. I’m going to make a trip there next.

It is not easy to survive in the food & beverage industry. The casualty rate in Robertson quay is particularly high, with restaurants opening and closing all the time. Ichibantei has been around for quite a long time, so they must be doing something right.

Les Bouchons Rive Gauche

Les Bouchons Rive Gauche is a casual French Bistro at Roberton Quay which has been around for some time and though I’ve always seen it walking back and forth Robertson Quay, it never really occurred to me to try it. Steak & frites, anyone?

Laurent Bernard Chocolatier

Laurent’s Bernard Chocolatier

When it comes to chocolate desserts, Laurent Bernard Chocolatier is one of the best in the business. Formerly known as The Chocolate Factory, the newly renamed Laurent’s Café & Chocolate Bar has two branches at Robertson Quay and Portsdown road. Whenever I’m having dinner at one of the restaurants at The Pier @ Robertson, I always find it hard to resist dropping by Laurent Bernard for desserts.

Menya Shinchan Japanese Noodle Restaurant

I wish I could say that I’ve been to all the restaurants in Robertson Quay, but it is impossible to spend so much on food all the time. I never even knew that Menya Shinchan Japanese Noodle Restaurant existed until my friend told me about them recently.

Red House

Red House Seafood Restaurant

There’s no need to go all the way to the seafood restaurants at East Coast Park just to satisfy your cravings. Red House Seafood Restaurant at The Quayside is one of the more established Chinese Seafood restaurants in Singapore, and they have very good chilli crabs! One thing to note though, they are very popular with tourists and the staff seemed to be more attentive to foreign customers.

Satsuma Shochu Dining Bar

Satsuma Shochu Dining Bar

Satsuma Shochu Dining Bar is a Shochu speciality izakaya at The Gallery Hotel that is known for serving yummy charcoal-grill skewers.

If you are searching for a great after work spot for food and drinks with friends, check out Satsuma at Robertson Quay. It is certainly a place I can see myself frequently whenever I feel like having Japanese food.

Tel: +65 6235 3565

Stacked Dim Sum Bar

Stacked Dim Sum Bar

A bar that serves dim sum with alcoholic drinks? Now, this is interesting. It is no secret that I love dim sum, so I was really happy to hear about the new Stacked Dim Sum Bar at Robertson Quay, until I saw their menu.

Most of their selections are priced from $7-10 per basket and the price is much higher than the usual dim sum restaurants in five star hotels. Don’t get me wrong, I am willing to splurge on good dim sum, but somehow, the menu seems a little overpriced and the whole thing feels more like a novelty concept to me.

That said, I’m glad that there’s new option for dim sum during dinner.

#01-13 The Quayside
Tel: +65 9677 8281

Shunjuu Izakaya

Izakaya is a casual Japanese bar where you can enjoy food with drinks. It reminds me of Spanish Tapas Bars, and one of the best things about such dining concepts is that you get to try so many different food. Shunjuu Izakaya is the place to share some snacks and drinks with your friends after a long day of work.

Sugisawa Japanese Restaurant

Sugisawa Japanese Restaurant at Robertson Quay has very good value for money bento sets. Like other Japanese restaurants, the bento set is inclusive of rice and miso soup. But what makes Sugisawa different from the rest is that the portions are really generous and they even come with sashimi.
