Just like Dempsey Road, what were formerly colonial houses have been transformed into a suburban gem. There are many great restaurants offering both indoor and outdoor dining opportunities. Several restaurants are very unique, with excellent ambience amidst the transformed setting of ex-colonial bungalows and lush green landscape.
One Rochester is Singapore’s foremost gastrobar, providing an excellent home-dining experience within the huge colonial bungalow. There is a huge drink selection, including sake, liquors, and a dedicated wine cellar with over 200 labels. You’ll be dining in well-designed, cosy and homely settings, perfect for a quiet dinner with your friends or loved ones.
Graze restaurant boasts huge grass lawns amidst the 5000 square foot gardens around an airy colonial house. The ground floor is a neat dining area, while the upper level has a DJ booth and a view of the gardens. For private events, you’ll have a personal bartender as well. There are also alfresco lounges suitable for pre and after meal drinks. What’s more, this lounge has a large outdoor screen for movie screenings!
There are a few more unique restaurants located around Rochester Park such as Da Paolo Bistro Bar, Min Jiang Chinese Restaurant and PInchos Wine Bar. Most, if not all joints at Rochester Park have a certain dress code. Strictly no slippers, singlets and in some cases, t-shirts. Therefore, dress smartly, prime your stomachs, and dine in a laid-back atmosphere at Rochester Park
