CBD dining: 4 good restaurants to try!

seafood dish

With spectacular views across to Marina Bay Sands from its floor-to-ceiling glass windows, Artemis Grill is a stunning space for both day and night dining.

The menu is modern Mediterranean with strong French and Italian references – and you may have trouble deciding what to order. The chicken liver parfait ($22), served with rhubarb jam and brioche, is so good you’ll have to hold yourself back from licking the bowl. The colour of the seared Boston lobster ($35) pops against the vivid green of the minty sweet peas, and tastes just as good; you can also order this as a main ($70).

If you’re a meat lover, try the perfectly cooked and simply served beef striploin ($60) – it’s full of flavour, with the flame-seared outside giving way to a melt-in-your-mouth tender steak. The juicy Iberico Pork Secreto ($40) is perfectly accompanied by an apple-miso puree and pork crackle (which you will fight over with your dinner guest!). But, there are plenty of dishes for vegetarians and pescatarians, too. Make sure you order the delicious crushed potatoes ($12) as a side dish!

The team is exceptionally professional and attentive, without being obtrusive. Requests are carried out with genuine thoughtfulness and in a swift, fuss-free manner.

Great for: Both, business lunches and romantic date nights. Tip: The restaurant is very popular for large corporate gatherings, so check when you book, if this might bother you.
