Tucked away on the 70th storey of Swissotel The Stamford, Skai is an utter delight. Just look at that view! Pair it with artisanal beef cuts perfectly prepared in a state-of-the-art Josper Grill and almost too-pretty-to-eat desserts, and you’ve got a lovely dining experience. Highlights include the uni saffron risotto and Miyazaki wagyu beef.

Lavo Italian Restaurant And Rooftop Bar
Lavo can go from weekend brunch spot to nightclub (complete with DJ booth) in a hot minute – talk about versatility! At the 57th level, you’d best believe you’ll be treated to spectacular views of the city skyline while you dine on hearty Italian-American cuisine. The restaurant is best known for its ginormous Lavo Meatball and signatures such as the chicken parmigiano, brick-oven pizzas and potato gnocchi. Oh, and don’t forget to bring your second stomach for the 20 layer chocolate cake (we kid you not).
Lavo Italian Restaurant And Rooftop Bar, The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, 10 Bayfront Ave, Tower 1, Singapore 018956
Take in the views from Level 38 at 665°F, a premium steakhouse that specialises in prime cuts and sustainable seafood. Date night? Order the wagyu tomahawk, which is perfect for two. Feeling fancy? The lunch set comes with an appetiser and a main course, with a choice of one side.
665°F, Andaz Singapore, 5 Fraser Street, Singapore 189354
Kebabs and Curries
Located on the seventh storey of Mustafa Shopping Centre, Kebabs and Curries is a change of scene from the bustling 24-hour mall. Aside from the obvious selection of, well, kebabs and curries, the restaurant will fix you up nicely with an authentic North Indian meal. Think chaats, biryani and a variety of naans and dips. Rest your legs after a Little India shopping spree or cool down on a hot day at this hidden spot.
Kebabs and Curries, Mustafa Centre, 171 Syed Alwi Rd, #07-00, Singapore 207704
Previously known as The Jewel Box, there are many rooftop dining options you can go for here. Choose from European tapas and cocktails at Dusk Restaurant and Bar and Cable Car Sky Dining for the ultimate “sky-high” dining experience in a cable car.
Faber Peak, 109 Mount Faber Rd, Telok Blangah, Singapore 099203
The Lighthouse Restaurant
It’s hard to beat The Fullerton when it comes to grandeur and this iconic hotel trumps the competition with its own rooftop restaurant. Perched on the eighth storey, it’s not the highest view in town but it features a posh ambience that will make you feel on top of the world. The cuisine here is conceptualised from “Cucina Costiera” – Southern Italian cuisine that’s authentic, homely and full of the freshest ingredients.
The Lighthouse Restaurant, Lvl 8 The Fullerton Hotel, 1 Fullerton Square, Singapore 049178
Boasting an authentic menu and a prime rooftop location that attracts both locals and visitors, Yan at the National Gallery Singapore is the perfect spot to sample Cantonese fine dining. The ala carte menu offers a luxurious selection of dishes including whole abalones, chef’s signature roasts and peking duck, but there are also specially curated set menus including a 5 course set lunch special for $38++ per person (min 2 persons).
Yan, #05-02 National Gallery Singapore, 1 St. Andrews Road, Singapore 178957
Located on the fifth floor of the National Gallery, the 90-seater flaunts an ambience that captures the art of chic Italian cuisine. Must-tries include the Hokkaido scallops with Finferli mushrooms, Truffle and Parsley Root, Tagliatelle with Pork Cheek, Tuscan Kale and Crispy Pancetta, and Spring Lamb Chops with Heirloom Carrots and Caramelised Shallots. Another trump card that Aura has in its hand is the Aura Sky Lounge, one level up. There, we dug into saccharine treats like Amedei chocolate and banana cake, and Bailey’s and hazelnut feuillantine while taking in a top-notch view of The Padang and the SG skyline.
Aura, 1 St. Andrews Road, #05-03 and #06-02 National Gallery Singapore, Singapore 178957
Artemis’ Mediterranean food selection is just as sensational as its panoramic view. Appetisers like the Nantucket Bay Scallops are complemented with a perfect combination of sweet pea puree and crispy pork belly, and the Alaskan king crab salad serves fresh (not flaky) chunks of meat that tease with contrasting textures of crunchy grilled pimento peppers and buttery avocado. From the grill, we’d go with the Grilled Lobster that comes with snow pea salad. And for dessert, our vote goes to the Artemis Tiramisu for a sweet, classic touch to the night.
Artemis Grill, 138 Market Street, Lvl 40 CapitaGreen, Singapore 048946
Spago by Wolfgang Puck
This uber cool restaurant offers two distinct spaces to suit your mood. For something a little more intimate, the 90-seat dining room is ideal for working lunches or a romantic treat. But if a laid-back vibe is more your thing, the casual lounge terrace overlooking the iconic infinity pool is an ideal space for alfresco entertaining. Its lunchtime menu combines Californian flavours with global influences – think tuna tartare cones with chilli aioli, Dutch milk-fed veal chop or soft omelet with smoked salmon.
Spago by Wolfgang Puck, Marina Bay Sands, Sands Skypark, Tower 2, Level 57
Located on Esplanade’s spacious roof terrace overlooking the bay, Orgo brings drinking and dining to the next level. Inspired by his Italian origins, Chef Andrea Camagna has come up with a menu that gives you a taste of his Mediterranean upbringing. Indulge in small plates like smoked fish carpaccio and hummus carasu, and mains like Sicilian pasta with pesto, Paella de Marisco, and cod fish with green curry.
Orgo, Roof Terrace, #04-01 Esplanade, 8 Raffles Ave, Singapore 039802
Prima Tower Revolving Restaurant
Okay, so this one’s a bit gimmicky, but it’s still something you need to try once in Singapore! If you realise that your scenery outside your window has changed halfway through your Beijing-Cantonese feast, don’t freak out. This towering restaurant slowly rotates, giving you a 360-degree panoramic view of the sea and city. Don’t worry about motion sickness either; you’ll barely feel a thing!

Perched high above the city in the penthouse of the Marina Bay Financial Centre, this high-tech brewery, restaurant, and lounge is an impressive venue to add to Singapore’s list of sky-dining.

There’s limited outdoor seating, so call ahead to snag that sweet spot.

Stellar at 1-Altitude
Another swanky waterhole to make you feel like you’re soaring high in life (it’ll literally do that to being 62 stories high), Stellar is one joint where you can splurge. Resting one floor above Altimate – a party pad that most seasoned ravers would be familiar with – Stellar cranks up the class with menus curated by Executive Chef, Christopher Millar. Its Constellations Gastronomic menu reaches skyward towards the stars – with seared Hokkaido scallops, Tajima wagyu and Rock Rose gin marinated Loch Fyne Kinglas salmon amongst its star attractions.

Revered as one of the best restaurants in the world, this high-flying restaurant pairs modern French cuisine with a breathtaking view of the Singapore skyline (hope you ain’t afraid of heights). Its Menu Prestige boasts a seven-course selection where you can sophisticatedly munch on confit rainbow trout with organic chicken, quinoa and lemon, langoustine canneloni with Oscletra caviar and Hokkaido uni, and ‘forest’ pigeon served with white polenta and cromesquis. All dishes are also meant to be shared, so don’t go hogging a hors-d’oeuvre for yourself!

Salt Grill & Sky bar
If you want high-end, this one takes the notion to a whole new level (literally!). Perched on the 56th floor overlooking Orchard Road, Salt Grill & Sky bar delivers celebrity chef Luke Mangan’s signature contemporary Australian cuisine and a menu of delish cocktails, with a dose of panache and urban luxe that you just can’t beat. Rising 218m from the ground, the restaurant is a fashionable urban restaurant serving up contemporary Australian food such as Luke’s signature Crab omelette and Liquorice Parfait.

Zafferano, Lvl 43 Ocean Financial Centre, 10 Collyer Quay, Singapore 049315
Potato Head Singapore
Never mind the views of the CBD and Marina Bay, the heritage district of Keong Saik will do for us! As much as we love munching on Three Buns burgers on the ground floor and sipping a swish cocktail on Level Three’s Studio1939 Lounge, we’re suckers for the breezy, cosy rooftop garden that always makes us feel on top of the world.
Potato Head Singapore, 36 Keong Saik Road, Singapore 089143
Cé La Vi
Take your dinner up high at CÉ LA VI for modern Asian treats and breathtaking sights of the Marina Bay 200 metres aboveground. Pop by the SkyPark for a more panoramic excursion afterwards, or go straight to the Club Lounge – crowned as one of the best clubs in the world – to shimmy to some pulsating beats.
