Restaurant with Great View
This restaurant is located at the heart of Singapore shopping district. The restaurant is at the top of ION orchard where you can view the surrounding city around Orchard road. The restaurant serves Australian, fusion, seafood and steak. It also has menu that is vegetarian friendly. Before you reach the top of the restaurant, you will be greeted by the staff at level 4 of ION building. There you will be escorted through to the lift that take you straight to the restaurant.
I like the restaurant’s quiet pleasant environment where people are not talking out loud to disturb the peace that this place brings. Being able to whisper to your love one when dining in and enjoying the view. Best time to be in the restaurant would be from 6pm. Just before the sun sets, you can see the changes of the sky and the brightening of the street lights. As the sky become darker, you can start to enjoy the night view from where you are sitting.
The food is of small proportion, which is not great for someone who is dying for a feast. Nevertheless, the food is done by highly qualified Australian born chef Jake Kowalewski. His food is known to be served in clean and simple manner.
The wine is tasty and great with the steak. They have 500+ varietal wine selection and hand-crafted cocktails which make it hard for you to choose. As a fine dining always has a dress code, this place prohibits people from wearing slippers, flip flops, singlets or tank tops (for male). So, do dress appropriately to avoid being too casual to be allowed into the restaurant.
If you have completed your dinner and like to hang around for more drinks, you may proceed to the bar area, where you can continue to order some wine or drinks of your liking.
Generally, this place is nice with good ambiance for special occasion. Price is on the high side if you are not ready to be spending a few hundred dinning anywhere. Reservation is advised especially on a special occasion or seasonal holidays.
There are lots more restaurant nowadays that emphasis on great views. Roof top bar, dining area is getting more popular as we are no longer just looking for great taste but great view too. In terms of view, I wouldn’t say here is the best. I will write about more places in time to come, so check back here for more recommendation.
