Our Guide on Where to Eat in Singapore
When it comes to which is the best restaurant in Singapore, there is no simple answer. The selection is huge, the verity of cuisine staggering and of course, the actual question is subjective. So we decided that rather than just giving you a list of our personal favourites, we thought it would much more fun to let the users of Quandoo decide where to eat in Singapore.
From there the decision-making process was simple, we went onto the platform and arranged restaurants by rating and filtered out anything with less than 100 reviews and found where to eat in Singapore. So without further ado here is Quandoo’s recommendations of where to eat in Singapore, in order:
1 – Braci

Mother's Day | It's time to say thank you to the remarkable woman who raised you. On the 13th of May, we present a royal feast, fit for a queen. In the 📷: Mayura Wagyu – black garlic, rabe blossoms and mustard seeds.

After being awarded a Michelin star in 2018, Braci really deserves its spot on the top of this list. Serving traditional Italian cuisine, this Singapore favourite matches its exceptional menu with breathtaking views, award-winning service and a cocktail menu that is out of this world. Braci, which translates to ‘embers’ is reinvented, classic Italian cuisine. Despite being spread over two floors, with the main restaurant on one and the bar on the rooftop, space is still very limited and advanced bookings are essential.
2 – Bakalaki Greek Taverna
Bringing Greece and the Mediterranean to Singapore, Bakalaki Greek Taverna wins its place on this list for its consistent high-quality food, fantastic service and charming atmosphere. Alongside traditional Greek cuisine, it also has a great selection of Greek wine and beers which creates a dining experience that is authentic without being exclusive and makes you feel welcome and at home.
3 – Fratini La Trattoria
Taking the Japanese idea of omakase and applying it to traditional Italian cuisine, Fratini La Trattoria is unlike other Italian restaurant in that you explain to the chef what you’re in the mood for, what you like and what you don’t like, and then sit back with a glass of wine and wait and see what comes out. Each visit is different, unique, special and more than worth it.
4 – Chef’s Table by Chef Stephan Zoisl
As mentioned in ‘Simply The Best: Your Guide to Fine Dining in Singapore’, Chef’s Table also specialises in omakase. You select a budget, highlight which ingredients you’re interested in and the rest is up to Chef Zoisl and his talented team, ensuring no two visits are the same. Rated as one of Singapore’s top restaurants for several years now, no guide to dining in Singapore would be complete without it.
5 – Colony
A simple assembly of ingredients is all you need to eat right. How would you like a bite of our open-topped smoked salmon sandwich?
Located inside the Ritz-Carlton, Colony is inspired by Singapore’s colonial heritage. In the same vein, Colony takes its guests on a culinary journey. With seven kitchens showcasing the best of Chinese, Indian, Indonesian, Malaysian, Western and of course, local Singaporean cuisines, you’ll love the wide range of dishes on offer here. Colony should most definitely be high on your list of must-visit restaurants in Singapore.
6 – Garibaldi Italian Restaurant and Bar
Since it opened in 2003, Garibaldi Italian Restaurant and Bar has become a mainstay of Italian cuisine in Singapore. After winning a Michelin star in June 2017, it’s only gone from strength to strength and has a level of quality that’s unparalleled. Garibaldi is one of the most sought-after restaurants in Singapore and is a must-try for lovers of quality, Italian fine dining.
7 – Bar-A-Thym
Bar-A-Thym has combined classic French cuisine and Japanese omakase to create a restaurant that’s both exciting and innovative. Of course, there is an a la carte menu boasting classic French dishes, but the star of the show is the omakase menu. The ingredients are fresh and seasonal, and they pride themselves on sourcing everything from sustainable suppliers. It’s worth visiting for the experience alone, but the fantastic food and professional service is the icing on the cake.
8 – The Naked Finn
With a focus on presenting simple food cooked to perfection, The Naked Finn has become one of Singapore’s best fish specialists. The dishes are prepared in a way that highlights the flavour of each ingredient and is matched by warm and friendly service. All the mouth-watering fish and seafood is sourced from sustainable providers, making The Naked Finn one of our favourite dining spots in the city-state.
9 – Senso Ristorante & Bar (Closed)
Another restaurant we mentioned in ‘Simply The Best: Your Guide to Fine Dining in Singapore’, Senso Ristorante & Bar is one of the best choices for Italian dining in Singapore. This multi-award winning Italian restaurant has been voted as one of the best restaurants in the country, and definitely deserves its spot on the list. With an excellent menu, impeccable service and a sophisticated atmosphere, what’s not to love?
10 – The Royals Steakhouse

The Royal Steakhouse started out as The Royals, a restaurant that only served dessert and cake, but as popularity grew so did the menu and now it’s one of the most acclaimed restaurants in Singapore. The wonderful ambience, generous portion sizes and fantastic steaks make it an easy choice for this list. It’s also famously one of the many halal-certified restaurants in Singapore.
