Valentine’s Day 2016 in Singapore – Romantic Restaurants

Valentine’s Day 2016 in Singapore – Romantic Restaurants

If you want to impress someone special or celebrate a longstanding relationship, the right romantic restaurant can make all the difference. Where to eat on Valentine’s day? We have compiled a list of romantic restaurants for Valentine’s Day 2016. Most people think of Les Amis, Corner House, Halia, White Rabbit or one of the restaurants high up in the sky with spectacular views. We look for restaurants which may be less talked about or are newly opened but should still be good for a Valentine’s Day date. They are restaurants which offer a romantic atmosphere and typically quality food and good service. These are The Ordinary Patrons’ Romantic Restaurants for Valentine’s Day 2016.

Ristorante Da Valentino

Romantic Restaurants in Singapore

Romantic Restaurants in Singapore

The name itself  should conjure up romantic notions. Stepping inside Ristorante Da Valentino is like going into a restaurant somewhere in a small town in Italy. Furnished like an Italian home with a cosy ambience, the restaurant has private rooms, semi-private rooms and intimate ‘mini caves’. Good classic Italian food with warm service in an elegant atmosphere and smooth Italian wine should ensure a romantic evening. see Valentino Restaurant Singapore – Italian food in Turf City.

Open Farm Community

Romantic restaurant for Valentine's day

Open Farm Community

There is no farm (in the big scale sense) at Open Farm Community, just some herbs and small plants in the garden.  But it is still an attractive restaurant that uses local farm produce in their dishes. Read Open Farm Community – the new restaurant at Dempsey.

Magosaburo Japanese ION Orchard

Magosaburo Burger Steak Set Lunch

Your significant other likes beef and Japanese food? Then Magosaburou is the restaurant for you. Tucked away in a corner of the 5th floor carpark of the Ion Orchard, it is a restaurant that has quite a low profile. Entry is from the carpark or a small entrance on the 4th level in the mall itself.  Expect a modern, swanky restaurant that serves great food and has a view of Orchard Road.  Read Magosaburo Wagyu Dining at Ion Orchard – Good Value Set Lunch.

Joie Restaurant

Romantic restaurants in Singapore for Valentine

Joie Vegetarian Restaurant

Joie Restaurant is on the penthouse level of Orchard Central. It is elegantly furnished and tables are set far apart. It serves “Japanese-French Creative Modern Meatless Cuisine” and the dishes are creatively presented. Definitely one of the most suitable restaurants for Valentine’s Day in Singapore.

Joël Robuchon Restaurant

Joël Robuchon Singapore

Joël Robuchon Singapore

Joel Robuchon needs no introduction. This multi-Michelin-starred chef’s restaurant in Sentosa is tastefully furnished without being ostentatious. This will be on most lists of the best restaurants for Valentine’s Day in Singapore. The only setback with dining here is the price ($488++ per person for the 8 course dinner Valentine’s Day Menu). We overcame that by eating there at lunchtime on a Saturday which has more affordable menus. An alternative plan B is to try the more casual sister restaurant next door, L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon, which is less painful on the wallet (1st seating 5-Course Menu at $188++ per couple).

Ginza Kuroson

Romantic Japanese restaurant

Romantic Japanese restaurant

Ginza Kuroson is a relatively new restaurant in Ngee Ann City. It is a izakaya styled Japanese restaurant, which means a wide variety of sake and an equally wide selection of food. Such a restaurant may not fit the mould of a stereotypical “romantic” restaurant, but we think, in this day and age, a romantic dinner need not always mean a candle light dinner in a dimly lit European restaurant. See Ginza Kuroson 銀座黒尊, a new Japanese restaurant in Ngee Ann City.

Valentines' Day Singapore 2016

Valentines' Day Singapore 2016

For some reason, Chinese restaurants are not the first to come to mind when one thinks of restaurants for Valentine’s Day. In fact, we go to Chinese restaurants to “escape” from the Valentine’s Day special menus that are foisted on us at the “Western” restaurants.

Perhaps they are not generally thought of as romantic places, but one Chinese restaurant that could change that mindset is Empress, the latest restaurant by Prive at the ACM. Good Chinese restaurant in a setting that is more than romantic enough for us by any standard, plus a great view of the Singapore riverscape.

Romantic Restaurant in Singapore

Romantic dinner in Singapore

Coriander Leaf serves great fusion food without the confusion that is sometimes associated with this kind of cuisine. Their interesting Valentine’s Day Menu ($190++ per couple) and location at the romantic grounds of CHIJMES should make it a good Valentine’s Day dining option. You can even cook a special meal for your date by attending their special Valentine’s Day Cooking Class.

The Coastal Settlement

Romantic Spot for Valentine's day

Romantic Spot for Valentine's day

The choice of the Coastal Settlement as a restaurant for Valentine’s Day will be a risky one. This quirky, colourful restaurant is like nothing we had seen before and is located at the remote end of north-eastern Singapore. Best to arrive here before dark to fully appreciate the full glory of the place (and to find it). One either loves it (what a fantastic place, I never imagined such a place exists in SG!) or hates it (you made me come all the way here just to eat this?).  Read Coastal Settlement – a restaurant like no other in Singapore.

Cafe Melba

One need not take Valentine’s Day too seriously. It is really the company and the thought that counts. For a more relaxed venue, Café Melba is a casual all-day dining cafe in the tranquil compounds of Goodman Arts Centre. The leafy grounds can have a mysterious and romantic feel in the evening. Café Melba offers Asian interpretations of Australasian dishes as well as the usual brunch menu and pizza, pasta and sandwiches. Read Cafe Melba.

Argo Restaurant

Argo Dining at Adonis Hotel

Dessert at Argo in Adonis Hotel in Purvis Street

We think that the profile of a person who picks Argo as a restaurant for Valentine’s Day is one who is sensible and confident enough to make a reservation at an unheard-of restaurant in an equally unknown hotel. The decor is pleasant and unpretentious. The small dining space of the boutique hotel is quite charming and intimate. The food is good and Mr Sensible’s wallet will be happy (Valentine’s Day Set Dinner for 2 at $108 nett). The only problem is that sometimes being too sensible might be misinterpreted – that is where confidence comes in. Read Argo Restaurant in Purvis Street – no hype, just good food.
