Romantic Restaurants In Singapore
With so many variables—food, ambience, location—finding a restaurant to bring bae can be a tricky affair. Here are 10 romantic restaurants in Singapore for date nights, anniversaries, proposals or just a random night out.
Opened by the people behind PS.Cafe, Jypsy is a mix of a Japanese restaurant meets a chill, modern cafe. Expect a sleek, modern-looking interior with contemporary design elements such as indoor plants, plush sofas and huge lanterns that emit soft, warm lighting.
Food-wise, the unique Japanese fusion dishes are made for sharing. Order the Jypsy Salmon Tacos ($14), fresh salmon stuffed in seaweed taco shells and paired with fresh avocado, tomato salsa and fish roe. Other must-try dishes include the Smokey Unagi Fried Rice ($22) and Yuzu Tofu Cheesecake ($10).
2. Potato Head Restaurant and Bar
Potato Head is known for its scrumptious food, innovative drinks and, most importantly, quirky decor. I’d recommend going to the rooftop bar situated on top of the restaurant for a cocktail or two for pre-dinner drinks.
With strings of fairy lights overhead, the place gives a chill, tropical vibe that makes it feel like you’re no longer in Singapore. As you enjoy the sunset, try the refreshing cocktails such as the Hyde and Seek ($20) with pineapple-infused rum, peach liqueur, mint leaves and agave syrup.
3. Enchanted Cafe
For an insta-worthy first date straight out of a fairy tale, Enchanted Cafe offers wholesome cafe fare in a whimsical atmosphere. Take your pick from healthy yet delicious brunch menu items such as Avocado Toast with Hummus ($12) or the gorgeous-looking Acai (N)ice Cream ($12) bowl.
The inventive drinks menu will impress even the most seasoned of cafe-hoppers. Opt for the Ondeh x Espresso ($5.90 for hot, $6.90 for cold) or Witch’s Sleeping Spell ($7.90), a blend of chamomile, honeybush, lemongrass and ginseng root.
4. Dusk Restaurant and Bar
With its panoramic view of the Sentosa skyline and stylish setting, Dusk Restaurant and Bar has been a hotspot for many guys hoping to pop the question to their girlfriends. Not only is the restaurant an amazing place to grab a fancy cocktail for under $20—try the Nitro-Frost Caviar Martini Passion Fruit ($16)—the food is impressive too. The Tiger Prawn Capellini ($28) boasts al dente angel hair pasta and plump prawns mixed with lobster-infused oil.
Address: 109 Mount Faber Road, Level 2, Faber Peak Singapore, Singapore 099203
Opening hours: 4pm to 11pm (Sundays to Thursdays) | 4pm to 2am (Fridays, Saturdays and eves of public holidays)
The Keong Saik Road area is dotted with some of the most romantic restaurants in Singapore, and Esquina is one of its worthiest contenders. The charming, hole-in-the-wall Spanish restaurant serves up small plates with big flavours. Start with the Tsarskaya oyster with jalapeño ponzu and salmon roe ($8 each) and the Sea Urchin Sandwich with burrata and black truffle ($14 each). Share the Uni and Lobster Paella with saffron allioli and sugar snap peas ($34).
6. The Summerhouse
Tucked away in Seletar Aerospace Park, The Summerhouse lets you escape the hustle and bustle of the city for a romantic night out. The main restaurant space is in a conserved colonial bungalow.
But if you are looking to pop the question, dining in the air-conditioned garden dome might just be a worthy investment. Available from Wednesdays to Sundays, the “Dine in the Dome” experience costs $400++ a couple and consists of a 9-course menu, inclusive of a bottle of wine. Feast on dishes like fresh mud crab omelette with gruyere and herbs from the garden, finished off with a dessert of chocolate ice cream, vanilla custard and a hazelnut cookie.
Address: 3 Park Lane, Singapore 798387
The Summerhouse: 6 to 10pm (Wednesdays to Fridays) | 11.30am to 3pm, 6pm to 10pm (Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays) | Closed on Mondays and Tuesdays

7. Ocean Restaurant
If you are looking to wow your date, this one-of-a-kind experience will tick all the boxes. You will both get to dine amidst sharks, stingrays and schools of fish in Singapore’s S.E.A. Aquarium. Rest assured every dish here is prepared using sustainable seafood sources.
If you’re there for dinner, opt for the Create 6 Course ($182), where you can take your pick from 3 hot or cold starters, followed by a soup, a main course and dessert. The selection of starters includes Citrus Hamachi Crudo and Hokkaido Scallop with sea lettuce juice, nori and crispy baby sardines.
8. FLUTES Restaurant and Bar
For history and culture buffs whose ideal date includes a visit to the museum, a meal at Flutes Restaurant and Bar should also be on the itinerary. We suggest starting your meal with the Pan Fried Foie Gras with hibiscus poached blueberries and white chocolate ($24). For mains, indulge in the Grilled Rack of Dorper Lamb with minted spring peas and sweet potato puree ($48), or the Roasted Côte de Boeuf ($120, for 2 to share), served with your choice of 2 sides.
