TOP Romantic Restaurants in Singapore

What is romance?  The Oxford English Dictionary definition of romance is “a quality or feeling of mystery, excitement, and remoteness from everyday life“. So we guess that a romantic restaurant must be one which is something a bit different from your usual eating places and one with a certain element of charm. While the food is important, the best romantic restaurants must also provide great service and details such as interior decorations, tableware, lighting and noise levels, or in short ambience, are crucial for that romantic experience. Of course, all experience is subjective. Some people find rollercoaster rides romantic. So here is the totally subjective list of The Ordinary Patrons’ favourite romantic restaurants – TOP Romantic Restaurants in Singapore.
