Le Bincho Tan
Hidden away in the secret back alleys of Amoy street, this French-Japanese fusion restaurant is a true hidden gem for couples seeking an intimate dining experience. Upon entering the concealed back alley entrance, you will feel like you’ve entered a private wine cellar – dimly lit and cosy.
Le Bincho Tan only seats up to 35 pax at a time – with sitting available at the bar (right where you can see the action) or in intimate cosy corners. So, make sure you reserve ahead of time!
Their unique contemporary spin on French and Japanese cuisine with their trademark use of binchotan (a rare form of charcoal) is bound to get a great conversation started. Make sure you try out their small bites menu too: The Uni and Caviar ($25) is an especially delightful flavour bomb.
P.S Café (Palais Renaissance)
A romantic restaurant? Yes, you may be familiar with P.S Café as a popular brunch spot, but amongst their many branches, there is one special one perfect for romantic dining experiences.
Tucked away in one of the quieter malls along Singapore’s most popular shopping strips, P.S Café (Palais Renaissance) is not on the radar of most couples looking for a romantic restaurant. But not anymore.
Their signature colonial styled décor and lush floral arrangements all over the restaurant are on point at this branch too. But what makes it special – the unique standalone glass conservatory, glass-to-ceiling windows, and tall vaulted ceilings. In the evenings, it takes on a dreamy and romantic ambience as dinners indulge in their popular and extensive menu of both Western and Asian cuisines.
Overlooking the panoramic views of the Marina Bay waterfront, this bayfront restaurant exudes romance with its over-hanging chandeliers, private dining rooms and unique Mediterranean fine dining. The Hand-dived Hokkaido Grade Scallops ($38) and Artisanal Linguine ($58) are dishes that still linger on our taste buds.
On special occasions like the New Year’s, Riviera Forlino offers an unfettered view to the celebratory fireworks in the bay – a wonderful way to usher in new milestones together.
This beautiful Japanese restaurant is housed in a standalone black and white heritage bungalow along Scotts Road. With only an intimate dining area for 11 guests and separate VIP rooms, reservations are a must in this exclusive restaurant.
Their select dinner offering of two Omakase set menus ($300 and $450) means you leave your meal in the hands of the chefs. How exciting! Anticipate to be served your seasonally inspired dishes all prepared expertly and with ingredients of the most exceptional quality and freshness, over the course of 2.5 to 3 hours.
Inspired by the proverbial white rabbit from the fairy tale lore, White Rabbit is easily one of the most popular romantic restaurants in Singapore for weddings – albeit its slightly inconvenient location. If it is romantic enough for a wedding, it sure definitely is romantic enough for a date.
Housed within a beautifully restored Chapel, nestled deep in the Dempsey hills, a trip to the White Rabbit already feels like a journey to Wonderland. Dining on classic European cuisine (Breaded Frog Legs, Roasted Black Truffle Chicken and more) amidst a stunning stained-glass centrepiece, high vaulted ceilings and colonial architecture only adds on to the romantic ambience.
Start your romantic dinner date with a “personalized buggy service” to chauffeur you from the main reception area to the restaurant inside the Flower Dome. What a way to make an impression!
Indulge in Pollen’s signature modern European cuisine like Duck Neck Sausage and Seared Foie Gras as you dine in the comfort of the Flower Dome’s cooling environment, lush floral surroundings, and an unbeatable view of the stunning Marina Bay waterfront.
After the meal, you can even take a romantic stroll around the beautiful Flower Dome together.
