Our selection of the best restaurants at Marina Bay Singapore ranges from ultra-luxury rooftop venues serving up haute cuisine, to modest hawker stalls that’ll take you back to simpler times. The Marina Bay area is probably the most iconic spot in the city with its incredible views and mesmerising landmarks, so it’s no wonder there are so many great dining options about.
Part of the Marina’s development included the awe-inspiring, $5.5 billion Marina Bay Sands, and many of the restaurants included in our list are located in or around this world-famous resort. As with the flavours to expect, our selection has it all: from local Singaporean street food to French fine-dining, classic Chinese delicacies to lavish international buffets. Read on to tantalise your taste buds and discover the 10 best restaurants at Marina Bay in Singapore.
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. However, 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.

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, and recently ranked in at number 100 in the entire world! Specialising in delicate French flavours, this critically acclaimed restaurant 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 seven-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. Please 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, The Singapore Food Trail is a retro-style hawker stall with over 600 seats and numerous vendors dishing out food from all corners of the world. 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. With some of the more notable vendors like Boon Tat Street Barbeque Seafood, Katong Keah Kee Fried Oysters and Alhambra Satay Club serving up sizable dishes for S$5-15, this is also a great budget dining option in Marina Bay in Singapore.

Waku Ghin is the second entry in our ‘10 best restaurants at Marina Bay list’ that can be found in the iconic Marina Bay Sands Resort. This critically acclaimed restaurant is the work of celebrity chef Tetsuya Wakuda, and takes on an innovative concept where by diners move from room to room to experience different environments complementing the changing flavours...supposedly.

Summer Pavilion can be found at the swanky Ritz-Carlton-Millenia Singapore, and with surroundings as exclusive as this, the food 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 jelly fish, as well as their double-boiled lobster soup. Certainly a dining experience that is about as posh as you’ll find in Singapore – and that’s saying something. Find Summer Pavilion (in the Ritz Carlton-Millenia) on the famous Raffles Avenue, just a short walk from Promenade MRT.
- Opening Hours: 11:30 - 14:30 and 18:30 - 22:00 Daily

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.

Melt – The World Cafe 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.

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 $S15-30 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: 11:00 (for brunch) until late, daily

Palm Beach Seafood
The long running Palm Beach Seafood restaurant, just a short walk from Singapore’s famous Merlion, is one of the only entries in our list that boasts stunning views over the Marina 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 quality of produce.
- Opening Hours: 12:00 - 14:30, 17:30 - 23:00 Daily

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 (12:00-14:00) if you want to grab table by the window.
- Opening Hours: 10:00 - 22:00 Daily
