If you want to have a taste of opulence and luxury, look no further than Sentosa and Harbourfront. Boasting unparalleled seaside ambiance, these four restaurants are out to provide some great familiar Cantonese flavor with ultra-chic touches, Michellin-star quality food and service and more. 

Cassia

When it comes to lavish, banquet-style Cantonese restaurants, it doesn’t get more glam than Cassia at the ultra-chic Capella. Think ornamental lamps, gorgeous screens with floral motifs and beautiful windows. Pair that with delicate, contemporary plating, and you have a spot that’s as appropriate for a date as it is a family reunion. Chef Lee Hiu Ngai’s signatures like the M9 wagyu with black pepper sauce and the baked lobster aside, try the baked fortune chicken, the live drunken prawns and the doubleboiled spare ribs soup. There’s an affordable dim sum menu on the weekends, too. G/F Capella Singapore, 1 The Knolls.

L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon

The more “casual” of his two Singapore outposts, L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon has the same distinctive red and black decor as the others around the world. Opt for the eight-course Discovery menu, which brings a seemingly endless procession of dishes, including highlights like the signature amuse bouche of foie gras custard with red port wine and Parmesan foam, the decadent Imperial caviar and sea urchin, tender jelly of dashi topped with broccoli cream, and the unimaginably smooth and creamy mash potato. Or opt for a smaller four-course Menu Appetit that you can create out of a list of dishes. Resorts World Sentosa, Hotel Michael, 8 Sentosa Gateway.

Skirt

The focus at Skirt may be squarely on premium meats grilled to perfection on the centerpiece South American parilla grill, but this ain’t no Old World steakhouse. With floor to ceiling windows, curved high-backed sofa seating and dramatic and sculptural lamps hanging from the ceiling, the space is quite glamorous. Black Angus, various wagyus and other delectable meats aside, there is also sustainably sourced seafood, duck confit, lamb shank and other meaty delights, not to mention some lovely starters like ceviche and crab salad. W Singapore - Sentosa Cove, 21 Ocean Way.

Tamarind Hill

Thai restaurants in Singapore are a firm fixture, but none come close to the gorgeous overall experience and delicious food Tamarind Hill has to offer. The setting—a historic colonial mansion at Labrador Park with Asian inspired decor and lush foliage—feels like a high-end tropical resort in Thailand. The menu covers your familiar salads and curries, but in an elevated way, and even throws in some interesting, hard-to-find dishes like relishes from Chef Wanthana’s native Northeast, like the shrimp paste relish with green mango and even five variations on the papaya salad, including one with wagyu beef. 30 Labrador Villa Rd.
