One Michelin star found its way to this cute little restaurant, placed on a rooftop of a historical building in the heart of Boat Quay. The outdoor area provides enough space for 20 lucky people where they can enjoy a beautiful view of the river and the skyline while feasting on some of the finest Italian dishes. All of the food is prepared over the fire in a Josper oven and the shichirin grill.
The interior is modern, high end, and stylish just enough for you not to feel too stiff. Small size and excellent views make it a romantic getaway. And not a too expensive one, for that matter.

Shinji by Kanesaka
There are two of these Japanese omakase restaurants in Singapore, both of them have one Michelin star. The first one that opened is located in Singapore’s Carlton Hotel, and the second one is in Oue Tower, overlooking Collyer Quay. They are considered to be the best Japanese sushi restaurant in Singapore.
The simple and elegant wood and paper dining room add considerably to the food tasting experience. Exceptional sushi and seafood dishes are an absolute treat, but that comes with a price
Hana Lunch Set is $75. For $450 you will get Omakase Shin which includes appetizer, assorted premium sashimi, assorted cooked dishes, sushi, soup, and Japanese fruit. And the Edomae Sushi set will cost you about $220.
After you are done visiting all of those restaurants, the great thing about Singapore’s city center is there are plenty of places to walk it off!
