The best restaurants in Sentosa Island are usually more associated with the beaches and theme parks. Sentosa now boasts a whole list of restaurants with Michelin star chefs plying their trade in their kitchens, many taking full advantage of fresh seafood products as well as some specially imported ingredients from around the world.
The emergence of several world-class, five-star hotels on Sentosa Island has, of course, boosted this emerging dining scene, with many resorts such as the Shangri-La and Singapore Resort and Spa both boasting a list of excellent eateries. We’ve also found a few great spots at the massive Resorts World Sentosa – not forgetting a couple of picturesque beachside restaurants.

Trapizza is where to head to if you’re after some feel-good Italian food with an exotic beach view in Sentosa. Located right on the Silosa beachfront at the sumptuous Shangri-La Rasa Sentosa Hotel, this casual diner serves up some excellent thin-crust pizzas which are all cooked in the wood fire oven onsite.
Trapizza also does a range of pasta, salads, snacks and desserts. The range of cocktails and beers is solid and there are some nice fruit juice combos for those skipping the alcohol. Set amidst the palm trees of Siloso Beach and overlooking the South China Sea, Trapizza is a great bet if you’re at the western end of Siloso Beach and looking for a spot to watch the sun go down.

For a little slice of Kampong Glam (Singapore’s predominantly Malaysian neighbourhood) right on Sentosa Island, look no further than Malaysian Food Street at the Bull Ring, inside Resorts World Sentosa. This tiny imitation street has pulled out at the stop to recreate that old-town charm so synonymous with the Kampong Glam neighbourhood, complete with hawker stalls, brightly painted shop houses and wooden tables and chairs to perch on awkwardly whilst tucking into your food.
As for what to eat, you’ll find everything Malay, from basic chicken and rice dishes to more exotic tastes such as satay sticks, noodle soups like laksa and fried omelettes with oysters. Prices are cheap for Sentosa, but not as cheap as the real deal across the water on the main Singapore Island. Read More...
- Opening Hours: Monday–Thursday from 10am to 9pm, Friday–Sunday from 9am to 10pm
- Location: 8 Sentosa Gateway, The Bull Ring, Resorts World Sentosa, Singapore

Another fine dining restaurant within a hotel on Sentosa Island is The Cliff, which boasts some stunning views across the South China Sea alongside some equally impressive food. The restaurant welcomes ‘guest chefs’ into its kitchen who all usually have a Michelin Star or two to their name, as well as a long history of working in top restaurants globally.
With that in mind, expect the degustation menu to change constantly, and to encompass a range of flavours from around the world. A 6-course dinner at The Cliff with Champagne will set you back close to S$200 per person but expect a whole host of exotic and luxurious ingredients creating one unforgettable dining experience. You can find The Cliff restaurant located in the much-loved Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort.
- Opening Hours: Daily from midday to 10.30pm
- Location: 2 Bukit Manis Rd, Sentosa, Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort, Singapore

SKIRT at W Singapore – Sentosa Cove
This posh steak house can be found at W Singapore – Sentosa Cove Hotel towards the east of the island. Those with a craving for some meat will love their sharing menu, which takes advantage of a range of fine cuts, including Blackmore Japanese Wagyu and Australian Tajima Wagyu beef – two particularly rare and expensive varieties. Almost more striking than the food, however, is the design of SKIRT.
Huge floor to ceiling windows allow light to flood in during the daytime, while the artsy hanging light features create a rather romantic setting at night. Seating arrangements are flexible, but those coming in groups should opt for one of the booths which are nice and cosy and great for that sharing menu. If you’re on a limited budget, SKIRT at W Singapore is probably not the place for you; their set menu starts at S$168 per person (minimum of 6 people).
- Opening Hours: Sunday–Thursday from 6pm to 11.30pm, Friday from 6pm to 11.59pm, Friday–Saturday from 6pm to 11.59pm
- Location: 21 Ocean Way, W Singapore - Sentosa Cove, Sentosa, Singapore

Blue Lotus @Sentosa Cove
Blue Lotus @Sentosa Cove is a fine dining establishment at the modern Sentosa Cove. Also dubbed the Blue Lotus Chinese Eating House, this is actually a sister restaurant of the flagship Saint Pierre restaurant of the same company just a few minutes’ walk away. Rather than French, the flavours here are of course all Chinese, although Blue Lotus has certainly given traditional dishes more of a modern touch.
Examples of this include their borderline-fusion crispy Sichuan-style fish and chips, their Wagyu beef and foie gras fried rice and their range of other changing dishes take full advantage of fresh seafood like lobster and crab. Traditional red paper lanterns attempt at making the decor fit with the food, although the surroundings don’t wow us too much, leaving room for their inventive and delicious dishes to do all the talking.
- Opening Hours: Monday–Friday from 6pm to 10pm, Saturday and Sunday from 11.30am to 3pm and from 6pm to 10pm
- Location: #01-13 Quayside Isle, 31 Ocean Way, Sentosa Cove, Singapore

Tanjong Beach Club
Tanjong Beach Club is the place to come for a chilled out beach party vibe as the sun sets over the lush Sentosa Beach. Don’t forget, however, that this (relatively) long-running Sentosa spot does some excellent beach grub too! They have an inside dining area if you want to escape the heat, though most diners prefer their alfresco seating space which boasts some great sea views and people watching opportunities.
The food is surprisingly fancy considering Tanjong Beach Club is more known for its parties, with dishes such as their lobster pie, roasted chicken and various pasta creations all going down well. Most mains are about S$25 but expect to pay much more if you go for the lobster or other items from the menu featuring expensive ingredients. Wash it all down with one of the signature mojitos or a glass of wine and you have yourself a hard-to-beat beach dining experience.
- Opening Hours: Tuesday–Friday from 11am to 11pm, Saturday–Sunday from 10am to midnight (closed on Mondays)
- Address: 20 Tanjong Beach Walk, Sentosa Island, Singapore
