Latteria Mozzarella Bar

For those who love mozzarella, there is no need to look any further. Latteria is a mozzarella bar full of hearty Italian dishes with delicious cheeses and the portions are large and delightful. The outdoor area is a great place to sit and relax on a lovely cool night or during the day. From the starters to mains and desserts, diners will taste true, authentic Italian flavors. Be sure to book on the weekend as the restaurant gets incredibly busy. The mozzarella at this bar is incredibly fresh and the atmosphere is lovely.

Sitting on top of Dempsey Hill is HOUSE, a restaurant and gallery for art lovers. This is a unique local experience with a fun twist and western cuisines made with local flavors. The restaurant is designed like a greenhouse with plenty of natural light, though thankfully there is air conditioning. Outside you can experience the refreshing atmosphere with the light breeze that always blows right across the hill. Surrounding the restaurant is beautiful greenery, which creates the sense you are far from the city.

Artichoke Café & Bar

If you’re looking for top-quality Middle Eastern or Mediterranean meals in Singapore, then Artichoke Café and Bar is the place to go to. This no-frills restaurant refers to its food as ‘dude food’, which means it’s unpretentious. If you’re with a group of friends, try booking the lambgasm: a whole roasted bone-in-shoulder lamb that is cooked beautifully and serves five people. This special must be ordered 48 hours in advance. The service, food and wine are all exceptional here. Artichoke can get busy, so it’s best to book in advance.
