Some days the riverside is simply gorgeous, as long as there's a slight breeze to lighten the humidity. Nothing better than a stroll along this precinct to people watch. You'll most probably bump in to someone you know. Singapore is just like that. 

You don't have to live in Robertson Quay to enjoy the dining options. The cafes can be quaint and the restaurant bars are providing safe distancing, most with affordable offers on drinks and delicious bites. To bring you the best of this neighbourhood, we took a count of the impressions and clicks to read on each of these eateries appearing in the list. Enjoy!

The English House is all about elegance and simplicity, inspired by colonial Singaporean heritage, the English House is an institution and a home for people who appreciate an antiquated era of classical food and drink, presented simply as nature intended; orchestrated and conducted by England’s greatest chef Marco Pierre White. Stilted, symmetrical lines of light lead you into the evening; glimmering candles, intimate shadows, walls embellished with the iconic English greats, immortalized through the eyes of Terry O’Neill. The English House is the preservation of a golden age; graceful and natural with a whisper of ostentatious eccentricity. Do check out the menus here: https://www.theenglishhouse.com/the-menus/

Every aspect of our restaurant is hence embraced by the unique textures and raw beauty of stone, engulfing diners in a Zen-like atmosphere of refinement. Flown in freshly, from farm to table Be it from Tsukiji or Kyushu, Osaka or Hokkaido, the provinces and towns from which each ingredient hails from have been strategically sourced for according to their reputation and seasonal availability. While remaining firmly devoted to tradition, our chef intends to continuously incorporate new ingredients and techniques with every change in menu so as to retain an element of surprise for our guests.
