We came up to the rooftop bar for some happy hour drinks. You get a great view of Marina Bay Sands in the background. The drinks were great!

I took my wife here for her birthday. We were a bit surprised to find only one other couple dining. The ambience was nice and food good. Drinks on the roof after dinner allowed us to take in a great view.

Went here with my wife, first for drinks on the rooftop and then meal in restaurant. Lovely views over Marina and river. We were the only people in restaurant but it didn't matter. Great service. Portion sizes are small but beautifully presented. Not an issue. We had our deserts back on roof. Lovely evening

Such a disappointing experience. The restaurant is very pretty but the staff are not trained and the food is below cafe's standards. Extremely small portion (we had to eat at home afterwards) despite ordering the menu. Prices are ridiculously high for such a poor level of service and quality. It s too bad cause the place is lovely but clearly,... More

We accidentally came here...just being curious about the sign downstairs. It totally worth to climb the few stairs to the rooftop. The view to Marina Bay is awesome ! Staff is friendly, drinks served quickly and the music is nice !

We went there to celebrate my birthday and our anniversary. We grabbed a drink on the side terrace before having our meal inside. The inside decor is very nice and elegant. The staff was very attentive, they had even printed nice Happy Birthday cards for me. They were very efficient throughout the evening. The food was incredible - from the... More

So the place had a private event so it was too noisey - couldn't even hear myself think. We went upstairs which was much better. We still had the set menu but they ran out of one starter so we had to eat what they had; the soup was cold and watery for seafood bisque. Fish main course completely forgettable.... More

My partner decided to book a reservation for our last night on holidays in Singapore. Firstly we decided to attend the Rooftop Bar for drinks prior to dinner. As soon as we arrived the waitress demanded my credit card even before we had ordered a drink or seen the menu. Then throughout the time we were there she was on... More

Staying in Marina Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
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 opportunity for visitors and locals alike. The ArtScience Museum always has a top-quality exhibition, and Gardens by the Bay is a fascinating manifestation of the government’s vision of Singapore as a “city in a garden”. Enticing Marina Bay is well worth a visit.
