This small café is not exactly a restaurant. But it is a good spot to rest a bit while visiting the flower gardens. We ordered tomato and burrata salad which was not good. The coffee was ok.

We made reservations for high tea for 3. Deposit of $25 was made online. We requested for a nice corner and they gave us a nice shaded table. Those tables directly under the dome was under direct sun, but not too hot as the dome...More

Food is average, service is effective. The dessert apple tartin is good. The best part of dining in this restaurant is getting a free access into the Flower dome, one of Singapore's attraction. The experience alone made up for the lackluster dining experience.

Fantastic location and a wonderful high tea! The service was excellent and we were seated at a table quickly even though we didn't have a reservation. The tea and snacks were most tasty!

Tranquil and serene was my first impression. Service was quick and precise. I enjoyed my dinner in pleasant surroundings. There wasn't much view outside other than the above and watching people passing by during their exercise routines.

Pollen is a uniquely situation inside the flower dome at Gardens by the Bay. It does not have the poshest ambience and settings but the excellent food makes the price worthwhile. It's a bit of walk if you're only coming for a meal but there...More

Nice location in the Flower Dome...but that the best I can say. Really ordinary staff who did not acknowledge us and I had to approach them. They seemed bored and no care, no responsibility attitude. Finally approached us to take our order but could not...More

Marina Bay
More of a mini city than a neighbourhood in the
traditional sense, the iconic Marina Bay aims to
dazzle and entertain visitors of all kinds. This is
the Singapore found in glossy brochures, featuring a
world-class hotel, casino, shops, restaurants, bars,
and other attractions all geared towards pure
entertainment. The SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands
provides a stunning view of the city, a must-see photo
