TOP List of Dempsey Restaurants

The Dempsey dining area is possibly the most pleasant dining location in Singapore. It has a wide mix of food choices, a laid back atmosphere, big open spaces with lots of trees and, very importantly, free parking. The success of the concept can be seen in the stability of the tenants. Many of them have been there for years. Some major changes in 2018 has prompted us to refresh our list of Dempsey Restaurants. Serving as a guide to the Dempsey restaurants and to help our readers decide what to eat at Dempsey, here is The Ordinary Patrons’ (TOP) List of Dempsey Restaurants (updated).  We have tried most of the restaurants listed and have provided links to our reviews which contain more information and where you can see more pictures of the places and the menus.

Greenwood Fish Market

Greenwood Fish Market opened in late 2018 and occupies the entire ground floor of Block 8D. It is probably the largest restaurant at Dempsey Hill. It is an attractive restaurant with a seafood market and retail section. As you can expect, the Greenwood Fish Market Dempsey Menu is dominated by seafood items. But for those who prefer their food from the land, there are salads, meat and pasta items as well.  Read more.

Tapas 26

The Spanish restaurant La Ventana at Dempsey Hill has re-branded 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.

Dempsey Cookhouse & Bar

Dempsey Cookhouse & Bar

In early March 2017, DEMPSEY Cookhouse and Bar by Jean-Georges Vongerichten started operations.   Prior to that, the only place we could try the creations of celebrity chef was the Paddock Club during the Singapore Formula One GP races. His restaurant was usually the best of the many F&B offerings at the F1 weekend.

The DEMPSEY Cookhouse and Bar is a beautiful place that looks like a big air-conditioned patio.  Our favourite dish there is the black truffle pizza. Read about our brunch here.
