Romantic Restaurants In Singapore

With so many variables—food, ambience, location—finding a restaurant to bring bae can be tricky, especially if it is to celebrate special occasions such as an anniversary or even the night to pop the question. Below, we’ve compiled a list of romantic restaurants in Singapore that sets them apart from a usual date night. 

1. Griglia

With a new outlet in Katong, Griglia is taking its goal of introducing Singaporeans to “authentic Italian flavours and hospitality” to the next level. 

Once you enter the restaurant, you’ll be greeted by Griglia’s bar. Treat yourself and your date to a glass of Tropical Spritzer ($18) — which takes a local spin on popular Spritzers in Italy — or take your pick from Griglia’s extensive collection of wines. 

The restaurant has an open kitchen concept, so you’ll get to watch as the chefs work their magic and meticulously prepare your meal. Consider starting your meal with appetisers like Cantabrian Anchovies ($7) or Prawn Tartare ($7), before digging in to a 450 Days Grain Fed Wagyu Beef Ribeye ($148) or Spiced Coastal Spring Lamb Rack ($88). 

Address: 139 East Coast Road, Singapore 428829
Opening hours: 5:30pm to 11pm (Tuesdays to Thursdays) | 12pm to 3pm and 5:30pm to 11pm (Fridays to Sundays)

2. Nook

If you’re looking for somewhere to make an impression for a first date, then check out Nook — a three-storey shophouse on Craig Road. 

On the first floor, you and your date will be welcomed into Nook’s restaurant, which offers European dishes with innovative Asian twists. For those craving seafood, the restaurant serves Crispy Scales Kinmedai Alfonsino ($68) paired with caviar and creamed leeks as well as Spanish Octopus Leg ($38). 

After your meal, head up to the second floor for some drinks at Nowhere Bar. To spice things up, you can even challenge your date to a game of VR golf at Nook’s Member Lounge on the third floor.

Address: 11 Craig Road, Singapore 089671
Opening hours: 11:30am to 3pm and 5:30pm to 12am daily

3. Kee’s

Located on the first floor of 21 Carpenter — a boutique hotel that opened December 2023 — Kee’s is the restaurant to go to if both you and your date have an eye for art. The neo-bistro and bar has numerous art pieces on its walls – perfect as conversation starters if there’s awkward silence. 

Check out their Sunchoke Black Pepper Pappardelle — which features freshly-made pasta cooked with a truffle pecorino cream sauce. For those who prefer Asian food, Kee’s offers Japanese Red Sea Bream as well as Beef Cheek Rendang.

4. Khiri

Situated among an unassuming row of shops on Jalan Besar is Khiri, a vibrant new restaurant specialising in Northern Thai cuisine. The location might make you feel like you’re going on a mystery date with bae, but once inside, the smells and atmosphere will transport you to Chiang Mai itself. 

The great thing about this restaurant is, if you or your date can’t decide on what to order, just go for the eight-course tasting menu priced at $148++ per person. With multiple courses, you’ll get to indulge in dishes like Lemongrass Chicken & Prawn Cake, Hokkaido White Corn Soup with Hand Dived Scallops, Dry Aged Barramundi, and Grilled Iberico Pork – Esaan style. 

Khiri’s team is run by Head Chef Miller Mai and Chef Owner K-Jin Lim who both have extensive experience with Southeast Asian flavours. And the menu is changed quite frequently, so check out their website to see what’s their latest creations before booking a table. Or just go and enjoy being surprised, because why not?

Address: 15 Hamilton Rd, Singapore 209185
Opening hours: 6pm to 10.30pm (Mondays to Saturdays) | Closed on Sundays

5. SanSara

After undergoing a massive refurbishment, the Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel Singapore has brought Awadhi cuisine to the Lion City with the opening of SanSara. Although similar to North Indian Mughlai flavours, Awadhi cooking techniques differ with its style of preparation. 

Called dum-style, the dishes are mostly slow-cooked using a deep bottomed pan, and covered with a layer of kneaded flour that traps in moisture, resulting in extra tender meats and morsels. Awadhi cooking dates back 5,000 years ago, so expect to feel like royalty when dining on these recipes that have been passed down through generations.

For a truly exquisite experience, try their Signature Lamb Curry ($36) with a distinct blend of spices, the Awadhi Gosht Biryani ($38) with rich saffron and tender lamb or the Sailana Jheenga ($32), which are juicy prawns cooked in creamy coconut and yoghurt gravy. 

Address: 392 Havelock Road, Singapore 169663
Opening hours: 12pm to 2.30pm & 6pm to 10pm (Tuesdays to Sundays) | Closed on Mondays
Booking: Call 6233 1338 or reserve via their website

BTW, this special four-course dinner changes weekly and is only available on Wednesdays to Sundays at 6:30pm and 8:30pm. Make sure that you chope a slot before you head over. 

Extend your night by visiting Appetite, an intimate kitchen and art gallery situated above the restaurant, where you can also satiate your hunger with their new ala carte menu.

8. 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 their refreshing cocktails such as the Smash The Monkey ($23) with whiskey, passion fruit, lime juice, syrup, and mint leaves.
