While we’re big advocates on showing your appreciation for your loved ones all-year-round, Valentine’s Day is still a great time to show your beloved just how much you care. Treat them to an indulgent dinner at some of Singapore’s most spectacular restaurants, where the only thing better than the views is the food.
01 | Dine by the Bay at Monti
You don’t have to fly to Italy for a taste of Tuscany — Monti’s rustic classics will make you feel like you’re on a remote seaside restaurant that’s the region’s best kept secret. Come Valentine’s day, Monti will serve up timeless Italian classics for both lunch and dinner. The roster includes Maine lobster tail carpaccio, lovingly homemade pastas, and racks of savoury roast meats.
Come in the evening for front-row seats to Marina Bay’s iconic light show at 8 and 9pm, or adjourn to the Deck to enjoy your nightcap with your sweetheart.
02 | Create sweet memories (and dreams) at Cé La Vi
Breezy lunch? Moonlit dinner? Get you a restaurant that does both — Cé La Vi sure does that in style. For Valentine’s, they’re offering both lunch and dinner menus that feature snow crab, Kagoshima wagyu beef, and spiced lamb chops, all perched atop the Marina Bay Sands.
Of course, no visit to the rooftop venue is complete without at least a little bit of revelry. From 10 pm till late, the club lounge transforms into a sexy, sleep-over theme night — and if you have single friends moping about on the day, you can bring them along for the cheeky traffic light party.
03 | A regal British treat at Jaan
Michelin-starred Jaan serves up a modern British feast for Valentine’s day, with stunning views of the city on the side. The specially curated degustation dinner menu begins with a selection of delicate British snacks — think royal high teas — before moving on to the main event. Highlights include prawn cocktails with blue lobster and caviar, smoked duck breast with celeriac truffle terrine, and more.
Finish it off with the refreshing rosé champagne granite and liquid chocolate fondant served with chocolate fondant and caramel ice cream. Go ahead — we won’t judge if you sneak some off your partner’s plate.
04 | Fresh seafood awaits at Vue
Chief on the menu for Vue’s Valentine’s day is seafood (after all, you know what they say about those oysters). But we’re sure you won’t need any aphrodisiacs given your company and the penthouse restaurant’s sultry atmosphere.
The meal starts off with a special seafood platter designed for sharing before moving on to decadent classics like lobster tail, lamb, and wagyu beef, but we recommend you try the grilled Patagonian tooth fish.
05 | Escape from the city at The Knolls
If your idea of a perfect night with your partner is an uninterrupted evening away from the crowds, then The Knolls has what you’re after. Here, you’ll trade the concrete jungle for an actual one with views of the neighbouring foliage and Capella’s sprawling infinity pool.
The five-course Valentine’s menu features Hokkaido scallop carpaccio and caviar, as well as a choice of an Australian wagyu striploin and foie gras or Atlantic black cod confit, and rounds off nicely with a cherry and earl grey infused mousse. You can even go for an evening stroll around the area when you’re done, or hop onto the cable car back to the city for a romantic way to end the night.
