Along the perimeters of the urban jungle that is Singapore, you’ll find these seaside restaurants for an amazing meal with the gentle touch of the ocean breeze.
Seafood by the sea? Sounds about right. Such is your view while your fresh catch of the day flakes at the touch of your fork. Pick your seafood of choice, from American Striped Bass to New Zealand Fresh Swordfish, and have it done your way: pan-seared, battered, char-grilled, you name it. Its seasonal fresh oysters go from $4 each!

Or, be transported to the seaside of Greece with this Santorini-inspired restaurant decked out in a clean blue-and-white theme. Whet your appetite with a refreshing Watermelon Salad with Feta before moving on to authentic Greek fare from Grandma’s recipe book, like Mousaka (Greek eggplant and beef “casserole”, creamy béchamel sauce), grilled meats and more.

What better place for Hawaiian cuisine than by the beach? Eat your fill with menu items like Wagyu Beef Burgers, fresh Poke Bowls, and, in true blue beach-bar style, cocktails served in tiki mugs. Delish, and not just because you’ll be hungry after a round (or three) of jet-skiing at this beach club.

Ok, so Smith Marine isn’t exactly a seaside restaurant, but that’s because it’s literally on the sea. On a floating platform. Reachable only by boat. Super cool. You even get to fish for your own seafood right before your meal and have it cooked any way you like.

The breezy outdoor dining area at this hidden gem is graced with the backdrop of the ocean and the horizon behind. Add to that stellar Italian fare done homely yet luxuriously – go for the Vitello Al Funghi Porcini, a splendid rack of veal in italian mushroom sauce – and you’ve got your perfect date night.

Seafood lover? So are the folks behind this dining concept by the Keppel Bay waters, and they’ve certainly done their favourite food justice. Light starters like the Beer-Battered Cod Fritters are cheeky teasers to the big boys like the Fisherman’s Feast (pictured), a deep skillet of linguine coated in a briny seafood sauce and topped with lobster, prawns, mussels and seasonal fish.
