TOP List of Dempsey Restaurants 2017-2018


(Updated June 2018) The Dempsey dining area is probably the most successful of the projects to rejuvenate old Singapore neighbourhoods into thriving, vibrant new ones. To help our readers decide what to eat at Dempsey, here is The Ordinary Patrons’ (TOP) List of Dempsey Restaurants that we have tried.  Our list contains diverse dining options to cater to different tastes and budgets.

We have provided links to our reviews which will contain more information about each restaurant. As restaurant details such as menus and opening hours often change, we recommend that you check with the restaurants for the current information.

Tapas 26

Tapas 26

The Spanish restaurant La Ventana at Dempsey Hill has rebranded itself and moved to another location within the Dempsey village. It is a stone’s throw from the old location. Tapas 26 is the new entity. The place is new and it no longer has the collaboration with Michelin-starred chef Charles Gaig. Yet the layout and feel of the new restaurant felt roughly familiar.  Read more.

Morsels moved from their former location in Mayo Street (Little India) to Dempsey in early 2017. It is a small barnyard styled restaurant that is located in a quiet pocket of Dempsey Hill.  The dishes there can be described in two words – delicious and small.  Read our review here.

COMO Dempsey


As we approached the end of 2016, the most exciting thing happening at Dempsey was the new COMO Dempsey enclave that is taking shape.  They occupy Blocks 17 and 18 at  Dempsey Road.  As at August 2017 all the four restaurants are operational.  Read our overview of Como Dempsey here.  Or go straight to our reviews on individual restaurants :   Candlenut.   Ippoh Tempura, Dempsey Cookhouse and Como Cuisine.



Jones the Grocer

Having lunch at Jones the Grocer Singapore @ Dempsey is like having lunch in a grocery store.  Well made restaurant classics and a wide cheese selection are attractions.   The long opening hours (8am to 11pm daily) take “all day dining” to a new level.  Read our review here.
