Best Places with Restaurants in Singapore

All you need to know about where to eat in Singapore

In the past decade, besides the more well-known Orchard Rd or Marina Bay waterfront areas, many other dining areas have sprouted up in suburban areas, ex-colonial barracks and even within parks. Below is a non-exhaustive list of the popular dining areas definitely worth a visit while in Singapore.


Summary of restaurant areas in Singapore

Clarke Quay

Clarke Quay is one of the most popular and well-known nightspots in Singapore. There is a wide mix of restaurants, sports bars, pubs and other eateries all along the Singapore River.

Boat Quay

The Boat Quay is part of the Singapore River which is fronted by high office buildings and an iconic row of well-preserved shophouses now transformed into restaurants and bars. Seafood restaurants and Middle Eastern bars are commonplace.

Robertson Quay

Considerably quieter than Clarke and Boat Quay, Robertson Quay has recently been rejuvenated and now attracts expatriates and locals with numerous Western and Asian restaurants, together with the odd pub.

East Coast Seafood Centre

Major seafood restaurants have outlets at this 3-block food centre located within East Coast Park. Most of the restaurants have similar menus, though standards may differ. Speciality dishes here include the Chilli Crab and Black Pepper Crab.


Located within Singapore’s downtown core, this Gothic-style chapel and its grounds have been converted into a hub for nightspots and chic restaurants. You’ll find all sorts of cuisines here, including Japanese, Chinese, American, Spanish, Italian etc.

Dempsey Hill

Amidst the lush greenery, Dempsey Hill was once a British army barracks back in the 1950s. Restaurants, bars and gourmet groceries populate this area.

Club Street & Far East Square

Well-conserved shophouses line club street, populated with galleries, bars and cafes. Catering more to the yuppie and business executive crowd, this nightlife area is a notch more expensive than other districts.

Esplanade Waterfront

Within the Esplanade Theatre grounds is an array of restaurants and an outdoor food centre – Glutton’s Bay. After a meal, you can enjoy strolling along the waterfront promenade and soak in the sights of the iconic Marina Bay area.

Vivocity Harbourfront

Singapore’s largest shopping centre boasts a fantastic harbourfront view of Sentosa Island and the  Resorts World Sentosa. Choose from many restaurants after a day of shopping, sit back and enjoy the atmosphere.

Cuppage at Somerset

Boasting a tantalising array of 15 alfresco outlets, Cuppage terrace opens up another option for late-night dining for office workers and tourists alike. Located along the popular Orchard Road, why not drop by after an entire day of shopping?

Changi Village

Situated far away from the hustle and bustle of city life, this precinct on the North-Eastern part of Singapore is famous for its hawker centre and the Changi Boardwalk. Bumboats to Pulau Ubin, an offshore island, depart from the Changi Ferry Terminal.

Rochester Park

This 1930s colonial house has been spruced up into a trendy dining and entertainment hotspot. Choose to dine alfresco amidst the lush greenery, or opt for a comfortable indoor table.

One Fullerton

A vibrant and entertaining dining option along the Marina Bay waterfront. Connected to the luxurious Fullerton Hotel, the alfresco outlets along the waterfront offer a great view of the Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort.
