Feast your eyes on the most incredible views that Singapore has to offer, at these ten best restaurants with stunning vistas.

Singapore can catch you off guard, looking so very pretty from many unexpected angles. Whether it’s a view of the azure water, impressive skyline or the famous Gardens by the Bay, the restaurants below offer a real feast not only for your tastebuds – but your eyes, too.

The Clifford Pier

The Clifford Pier is a sight to behold from every angle: grand arches, ornate chandeliers, and floor-to-ceiling windows invite you to peer out at the gorgeous Marina Bay across the city. Housed in the charming Fullerton Bay Hotel, the restaurant was once a landing point for immigrants and other sea passengers. Today it has become a polished restaurant that retains a colonial era-sense of glamour and exclusivity. The old Singapore atmosphere here is enhanced by its menu, featuring Singaporean classics like laksa (curry noodles), and ice cream in flavours such as kopi (coffee), pandan and teh tarik (pulled tea). With grandeur like this, you can’t help but sit back and indulge.

Aura Sky Lounge

Aura Sky Lounge sits right at the top of Singapore’s National Gallery, looking very much like an exquisite art-piece in itself. Inside its indoor salon stand two majestic sculptures in violet and gold, inspired by the three sections of the Corinthian columns fronting Singapore’s Supreme Court. Apart from this art-piece by Malaysian artist Grace Tan, Singaporean artist Chun Kai Feng’s light installation – a neon light triptych for the floor-to-ceiling windows modelled after the retro window grills found in old HDB flats (public housing in Singapore) in the 1970s – also adds a touch of fun to the space. Admire the dazzling view of the Singapore skyline from the interior of this arty salon, or from Aura’s beautiful outdoor terrace.


Nestled within the Flower Dome at Singapore’s renowned Gardens by the Bay, Pollen offers a different perspective of this world-famous location. Think an elegant ‘house in the woods’ kind of atmosphere. All around you sitting pretty are the carefully manicured gardens of the Flower Dome, giving you a view of glorious nature in a multitude of colours. Dinner here is not exactly easy on the wallet, but the otherworldly ambiance makes it a worthwhile treat.

Salt Grill & Sky Bar

Sitting at the top of mega shopping mall ION Orchard on Orchard Road, Salt Grill & Sky Bar offers a panoramic view of Singapore’s skyline as you tuck into contemporary Australian fare. At 55 floors above the ground, this restaurant has all the essential ingredients for a romantic night out.

Tong Le Private Dining

Singaporeans love their revolving restaurants, and Tong Le Dining is a long-standing one. Here, you have an unobstructed 360-degree view of the city from the revolving platform. The restaurant boasts some top-notch Chinese cuisine, good for fancy family dinners or Grandpa’s 80th birthday celebration.

Tanjong Beach Club

Tanjong Beach Club lays the sea at your feet – quite literally. Located directly on Tanjong beach in Sentosa, you can sit indoors at The Dining Room or lounge around the cabana area, enjoying the sound of the waves lapping up against the shore. The club’s restaurant features an array of fresh seafood – for example, their Hokkaido Scallop Ceviche is a must-try.

Equinox Restaurant

The Equinox at Swissotel The Stamford is the grand dame of views, as it’s housed in the tallest hotel in Singapore on the 70th floor. That means you can savour your foie gras, wagyu beef, abalone soup and other European delicacies as you gasp at the sweeping skyline outside. A table by the window costs more, but it’s worth it to have the Singapore cityscape at your feet.
