Make goo-goo eyes over dinner
It’s probably too late to make reservations for a Valentine’s Day dinner date. By today, the sensible thing to do is to call foodpanda and settle for a cozy dinner-for-2 at a location of your choice. But, never mind. It’s really the company that counts.
However, you just might be lucky enough to score a table, so ring one of GERALDINE TAN’s top 3 choices immediately and keep your fingers crossed. If not, next year, book way earlier.
- Salt Grill & Sky Bar
Housed on the 56th floor, the restaurant offers a breathtaking view of the city along with a relaxed ambience and modern Australian cuisine. For the Valentine’s Day menu, check the link.
If you should be so lucky as to get the window seats, you’ll want to be seated early enough to catch the sunset.

- Alkaff Mansion Ristorante
Once the grand holiday home of the Alkaff family and the venue of high society parties, this heritage building is now an elegant restaurant away from the city bustle. The European-style century-old mansion on Telok Blangah Hill overlooking a 19-hectare park exudes old-world elegance. Although it’s an Italian fine dining restaurant, there’s also a special Valentine’s Day menu.
The beautiful courtyard is decorated with a pair of ornate fountains, a romantic roofed gazebo, an outdoor terrace and a Grand Marquee. For a romantic after-dinner walk, we recommend you explore the courtyard and enjoy the view.
