Damn awesome dinner place. We had the set meal. The service was so good. They were very quick to attend to all our needs and they were very polite too! I’m impressed with the way they treat their customers! We left some beef that we couldn’t finish and even though it is only 3 small pieces, they still packed in nicely in a paper bag for us(:

The food was delicious. We can food of all flavours, it was very satisfying! My favourite dish of the night has to be the mussel, it is from France and served with tempeh. Awesome!

I love the duck soup too! Every dish is a mini surprise in terms of favour. It is very homey. Will be back again(:

Ion Orchard’s 1-Atico restaurant concept on the top floor is a series of different concepts.

Fire is an Argentinean cuisine. Its name comes from barbecuing, a social practice.

FLNT, on level 14, is the Japanese concept of a restaurant with Peruvian food.

Atico Lounge is the bar concept.

The decoration of all of them is sumptuous and stylish.

They are different concepts, yet at the same time the same. This creates a nifty coherence, a unity of the chief relevant items, as well as, if you will, a variety of mere embellishments that exist to brighten up the show.

They’re definitely good ideas as a venue for weddings. Wth giant floor-to-ceiling windows and a 180-degree vista of the city skyline, the restaurant designs are stunning!

They’ve also installed facilities for the brides, as well as AV systems and screen projectors. And, yes, one can hire décor styling and wedding event-planning services from the site. 1-Atico have definitely thought things through!

Key Differentiators

  • Venue is perched atop the city’s pinnacle, 55 storeys high
  • Featuring an exquisite repertoire of delights specially curated by our in-house culinary maestros
  • 238 Seating Capacity Guests

Client’s Testimony

Very nice restaurant for birthday celebration, the environment is quiet and at the top level of ION orchard can have the city view. Food is good and the staff are very friendly. I will definitely come back again
