Meat lovers with some cash to splash should look no further than CUT By Wolfgang Puck, located in the Marina Bay Sands resort. As a chef, it’s always a bold (or egotistical) move to include your own name in the title of your restaurant. But many (including us), consider this to be the best steakhouse in town, so Mr Puck more than gets away with it.
Expect only the freshest and finest cuts of beef such as American sirloin, ribeye and filet, as well as Australian Angus and Japanese Wagyu – all cooked to perfection (you won’t find a ‘well-done’ steak here) in some rather swanky surroundings. Read More...

Jaan restaurant at the sumptuous Swissotel The Stamford is a consistent fixture in any top restaurants list, both in Singapore and across the Asia region. The restaurant specialises in delicate French flavours and also boasts some great panoramic views of the Marina Bay and Central Business District skyline.
The rather tiny 40-seat venue lays on a five or 7-course set menu, which uses only the finest seasonal ingredients such as fresh oysters, langoustine, caviar, foie gras, and pigeon to name but a few. Note that the nearest station is City Hall, just a short walk away from the Marina Bay area. Reservation is also advised. Read More...

Set in the shadows of the giant Singapore Flyer, Singapore Food Treats is a retro-style hawker stall with over 600 seats and numerous vendors dishing out food from all corners of the world. The modern hawker centre's quirky theme is complemented by playful vintage props and décor. The food centre serves up affordable and authentic Singaporean, Chinese, Malaysian, and Indian food.
Although actually a replica of a 1960’s-esque hawker market, the venue’s interior looks the part, and its food definitely tastes the part, really taking you back in time to a more classic Singapore. This is also a great budget dining option to hit when you're hungry in the otherwise upscale Marina Bay area in Singapore. Read More...
- Opening Hours: Daily from 10.30am to 11pm

Waku Ghin is one of Singapore's critically acclaimed restaurants, the work of celebrity chef Tetsuya Wakuda. The restaurant takes on an innovative concept whereby diners move from room to room to experience different environments complementing the changing flavours... supposedly.
Alongside the mouthwatering modern Japanese cuisine, you’ll find a sake bar, caviar lounge, and an enormous 3,000-bottle wine collection. You can access Waku Ghin via the Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands (Level 2) – Bayfront MRT.

Summer Pavilion at the swanky Ritz-Carlton-Millenia Singapore presents a dining experience in exclusive surroundings, with food that couldn’t fail to match. Serving a Cantonese-inspired set lunch and dinner, we were particularly blown away by the likes of the marinated duck roll with jellyfish, as well as their double-boiled lobster soup.
Certainly, this is a dining experience that is about as posh as you’ll find in Singapore. You can easily find Summer Pavilion (inside the Ritz Carlton-Millenia) on the famous Raffles Avenue, just a short walk from Promenade MRT.
- Opening Hours: Daily from 11.30am to 2.30pm and from 6.30pm to 10.30pm

Makansutra Gluttons Bay
One of the best budget-friendly dining options at Marina Bay is ‘Makansutra Gluttons Bay’; a collection of food vendors and push-carts which serve up an array of popular Singapore street food. Bask in the breezy outdoor ambience by the mouth of the Singapore River next to the Esplanade whilst tucking into favourites here such as the fried oyster omelette, satay chicken, and Laksa.
It’s the sights, sounds and smells reminiscent of old Singapore set against a scintillating modern backdrop of the Marina skyline that makes it an unforgettable experience. Add in a nice cold beer or fruit shake into the equation and might just have found one of your new favourite Singapore spots.
- Opening Hours: Monday–Thursday from 5pm to 2am, Friday–Saturday from 5pm to 3am, Sunday from 4pm to 1am
- Location: #01, 8 Raffles Ave, 15 Esplanade Singapore, Singapore 039802, Singapore

Melt Café at the Mandarin Oriental
The Mandarin Oriental Hotel boasts arguably one of the best all day international buffets in Singapore at their critically acclaimed ‘Melt’ restaurant.
Just walking distance from Promenade MRT on Raffles Avenue next to the Marina Bay, Melt’s speciality is its incredible diversity of cuisines from around the world. You’ll find different sections dedicated for barbequed meat, Japanese sashimi, Thai curries, Chinese delicacies, seafood, steak... we could go on. Prices start from about S$65 for the weekday lunch buffet but expect to pay more for dinner on weekends.

One of the highest, as well as swankiest restaurants in Singapore, is at CE LA VI, at the top of the Marina Bay Sands complex. Although more famed for its plush nightlife scene that draws in all of the city’s most beautiful people, CE LA VI also does a great range of al la carte dishes – all tasty and pretty enough to take your attention away from that view.
Our favourites include the rack of medium-rare lamb, the sushi sets and there are a few tasty desserts too. Just like the cocktails, most of their dishes fall within the S$15-30 price bracket, although you could easily spend a few hundred if you decide to delve into their extensive range of fine wines. Find CE LA VI in the SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands. Read More...
- Opening Hours: Daily from 11pm until late
- Location: Marina Bay Sands North Tower, 1 Bayfront Avenue, Singapore

Palm Beach Seafood
The long-running Palm Beach Seafood restaurant, just a short walk from Singapore’s famous Merlion, is one of the great restaurants in Marina Bay that boasts stunning views that don’t require an elevator ride! The ground-floor only restaurant has inside and outside seating, and you’d be silly not to try their famous ‘Singapore chilli crab’ (Palm Beach Seafood is supposedly where this iconic dish was first created).
Elsewhere on the menu is a variety of prawn, lobster, and shellfish dishes cooked in a variety of Asian-inspired ways. Most meat is priced per kilo and is subject to fluctuation – but Palm Beach Seafood is known to fall into the midrange price category – great when you consider the views and the quality of ingredients.
- Opening Hours: Daily from midday to 2.30pm and from 5.30pm to 10.30pm
- Location: One Fullerton, 1 Fullerton Rd, #01-09 One Fullerton, Singapore 049213, Singapore
- Tel: +65 6336 8118
The Gallerie Food Court at Marina Square
Singapore does have its fair share of rather non-descript, soulless shopping mall food courts; The Galleria on the fourth floor of Marina Square is certainly not one of them. Firstly, the airy and spacious dining space boasts an incredible view over the Marina Bay and CBD skyline in the background – a view you’d normally have to pay top dollar for when combined with dining in Singapore.
Dishes range from around S$4-10 and there is a great selection of local, Malaysian, Thai, Korean, Japanese, Chinese and European food all freshly cooked in front of you. The Galleria is also bright (thanks to the huge windows overlooking the bay), spacious, and conveniently located on Raffles Boulevard, a short walk from Promenade MRT. Avoid peak times (between midday and 2pm) if you want to grab a table by the window.
- Opening Hours: Daily from 10am to 10pm
- Location: Marina Square, 6 #04-101/102 039594, 12 Raffles Blvd, Asia Square Tower 2, Singapore 018961, Singapore
