Love yourself a good waterfront restaurant? Monti is an absolute stunner for a memorable couple’s night out, thanks to its stylish dome-shaped pavilion space situated in Marina Bay. Cosy up to your partner in between bites of Italian-Tuscan cuisine, then head up to the open-air rooftop terrace for alfresco views and cocktails after you’re done with dinner.
