With more than 190 skyscrapers crowding an area of barely 800 square km, Singapore’s skyline evokes awe and envy across the world, and rightly so. One can only imagine how perfect a date will be at a restaurant overlooking one of the best city views in the world. We round up 10 of the restaurants in Singapore where you can dine on a high.
1. Tong Le Private Dining
Tong Le Private Dining serves authentic Chinese cuisine, and some of their chef’s specialties include the Bird’s Nest in Chicken Consomme, and the Salt Baked Dried Abalone. Being a private dining restaurant, they are also able to tailor the menu according to the diner’s request.

Diners are promised a panoramic view of the stunning Marina Bay waterfront landscape. For tourists travelling to Singapore and looking for a place to have a good meal whilst absorbing the breathtaking sights of Singapore, this is one place you cannot miss.

Lantern’s name was derived from Clifford Pier’s historical Chinese name – “Red Lantern Pier”. Singapore’s first immigrants used it as a landing point and hung red lanterns as a guide to seafarers. While this restaurant/bar on the rooftop of Fullerton Bay Hotel is not exactly on top of a towering building, it nevertheless still offers beautiful views of the Marina Bay waterfront and the city skyline.
The restaurant is framed by a luxuriant backdrop of greenery and a stylish rooftop bar and pool. The ambience is chilled and relaxed, so you can sit back and indulge in gourmet snacks, fine champagnes, wines and cocktails, and of course the views.
