1) Ocean Restaurant
|KEY SERVICES||Surrounded by the world-renowned SEA Aquarium|

The walls of the restaurant are decorated with the world-renowned SEA Aquarium, which houses over 100,000 aquatic animals. When manta rays and sharks glide by, you won’t want to look at your phone! The Drunken Abalone and French Bouchot Mussel AOP are two of the more unusual dishes available here. It’s an experience you won’t get anyplace else in Southeast Asia.
- Thousands of marine animals

5 stars for me as it was one of the most memorable restaurants I’ve dined in. I don’t think there are other places in SG that’s able to give you the same ambience. If you don’t mind spending more, get the table with the best view (so you can see the fishes swimming). Course dinner and dishes were quite unique overall.Bernie Chin
2) Sushi Airways
|KEY SERVICES||Offers three-course set lunch|
|ADDRESS||20a Baghdad St, Singapore 199659|
|PHONE||+65 6291 1151|
|OPERATING HOURS||Daily 9:45 am to 2:30 pm, 5:45 pm to 9:45 pm|
We’re all eager to get over our no-travel sickness. So why not take a trip on Sushi Airways, which makes you feel like you’re flying across the ocean? This unusual restaurant in Singapore recreates a Japanese flight experience inside, with an aeroplane cabin appearance. Sushi Airways is serious about its inspiration, with stainless steel steps, overhead compartments, and meal carts. Consider that you’re in business class and order the seasonal omakase, or select from a variety of delectable Japanese cuisine.
- Offers three-course set lunch
- Decorative and novelty place to dine
- Fresh food
Tuck hidden, you may miss the entrance to the restaurant. It was a treat from my best friend! The sushi is really fresh and melts in the mouth. The lobster is a must-try. A good place to celebrate a special event.Jianhui Chan
|KEY SERVICES||Serves Singapore’s local food|
|ADDRESS||DUCK&HiPPO Hub @ Suntec City 3 Temasek Boulevard 01-330 Suntec Shopping Mall Singapore 038983|
|OPERATING HOURS||Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays 12:00pm – 1:30pm, |
Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays 7:00pm – 9:00pm
Singapore has some fantastic local cuisine, but let’s be honest, hawker centres aren’t really romantic. Take your sweetheart on the GOURMETbus instead! The distinctive sightseeing tour serves meals from Michelin Bib Gourmand Award winners such as Tian Tian Chicken Rice and Kok Sen Tze Char, which are both renowned for their lusciousness.
The tour will take you past notable places like the Singapore Flyer, Chinatown, and the Esplanade. The Gardens by the Bay are visited on both lunch and dinner tours; however, we recommend the dinner tour since you’ll be able to observe the supertrees light up!
- Relaxing view
- Serves Singapore’s local food
- Offers one-of-a-kind scenic tour
Hands down one of the best value experiences I had in Singapore. For the price, you pay you to get a 5-star dining experience with a very generous serving size, a very comfortable and modern air-conditioned tour bus and an incredibly friendly and informative host/guide.Shane K
4) Smith Marine Floating Kelong
|KEY SERVICES||Romantic vibes|
|ADDRESS||Johor Strait, Singapore|
|PHONE||+65 9792 7609|
Get a taste of the village lifestyle on the Smith Marine! This contemporary kelong (floating restaurant) serves some of the freshest seafood in Singapore. After all, isn’t it fresher if you catch the fish yourself? Try fishing for a snapper or sea bass at Smith Marine’s “sure-catch” pond before your dinner. It will then be cooked and served as part of your dinner. A short ferry ride from Changi Point ferry terminal is included in the price. If you’re on a date, go for a lovely dinner and watch the sunset over the water.
- Romantic vibes
- Fresh seafood meals
- Floating restaurant
Great experience catching our fish and having it cooked and served right away. All the dishes we ordered are so good and fresh! Great for big groups so you can try more dishes.Sueann Toh
5) NOX Dine In The Dark
|KEY SERVICES||Dishes’ names are kept a secret until the end of the meal|
|ADDRESS||269 Beach Rd, Singapore 199546|
|PHONE||+65 6298 0708|
The appearance of a dish can have a significant impact on your dining experience. But what if you can’t see your food? NOX Dine In The Dark will allow you to dine in total darkness, so you’ll need to adjust your expectations.
It’s an eye-opening (closing?) experience, providing you with a sense of what life is like for the blind. The eatery employs blind and visually-impaired waiters to lead you through the three-course dinner.
- Dishes’ names are kept a secret until the end of the meal
- The ambience is in a complete darkness
- Offers three-course mystery set menu and cocktail drink
Very interesting experience! My wife and I spent the whole dinner guessing what we were eating. Our server was very polite and checked on us regularly. The food was nice (can’t tell you what, you have got to check it out) and we left feeling full. The current location is closing on 28 Aug due to their lease expiry so you all better give it a try soon!Nathaniel Goh
|KEY SERVICES||Themed sets and quirky characters|
|PHONE||+65 8891 8146|

Each experience has its own menu, ensuring that each edition offers something new in terms of a wonderful experience.

- Enthusiastic staff
It was an impressive event, from the design of the place to the wonderful experience made possible by the enthusiastic and friendly facilitators, to the food that was prepared in each course. Only that I find the meal time given was a little short, between 5-10 mins, if 15mins could be given for main courses would be ideal. Otherwise, a perfect evening spent.Medhew
7) SIA’s Restaurant A380 @Changi
|KEY SERVICES||World-renowned chefs|
For an even more realistic experience, dine on Singapore Airlines’ Restaurant A380 at Changi! You may now board the world’s largest passenger aircraft for a delectable in-flight meal — an opportunity many of us have missed.
Purchase a ticket for your cabin class and experience an SIA meal with their world-class service, just like going on holiday. Two alcoholic beverages are included in the experience, as well as free-flowing drinks (we can’t promise the warm face towel though).

8) Le Petit Chef
|KEY SERVICES||Cinematic experience|
|ADDRESS||10 Scotts Rd, Grand Hyatt, Singapore 228211|
|PHONE||+65 8328 0605|
It’s one thing to observe your chef preparing your meal. It’s another when your chef walks across the table, which is precisely what happens at Le Petit Chef. This fine-dining restaurant at the Grand Hyatt Singapore employs 3D projection to create a cinematic experience right on your table, complete with immersive environments and characters!
The World’s Smallest Chef follows the world’s tiniest chef as he travels down China’s renowned Silk Road. You’ll enjoy meals from a one-of-a-kind six-course menu, made with ingredients found on the road by the chef.
- Silk Road theme
- Cinematic experience
- Immersive two-hour dinner
Wonderful experience – let the Petit Chef take you around the world in under two hours! You’ll get to dine in the Grand Hyatt’s wine cellar with host Iggie, who was entertaining and funny. That said, food was just average – there’s a good variety and some unique flavours, but nothing particularly impressive. The presentation was good though! Still, worth a visit for the experience and change of scenery especially for times like this when we can’t travel.Michelle N.

Favourite whiskey bar the Single Cask is here and a great place to try rare whiskeys. They have flights and happy hour deals. The Ramen place down the hall is great too. Can get it taken away and eat it while drinking whiskey.Ray febus
