Miss Fitz Kitchen + Bar is a bright, open sanctuary in the Singapore CBD serving a selection of contemporary Mediterranean sharing plates, wine, and easy drinking cocktails with a retro, coastal vibe.

Open every day for lunch, afternoons and evenings, Miss Fitz is the perfect place to relax and enjoy time with family, friends and colleagues. Evolving from its previous all-day casual dining menu, Miss Fitz Kitchen & Bar now offers a dinner menu with a variety of contemporary Mediterranean sharing plates from small (ranging from S$14 – S$22), to medium (averaging S$23 – S$34) to large (approximately S$35 – S$40 per pax).

Miss Fitz

The Mediterranean menu will feature simply prepared dishes with fresh herbs and fresh produce, letting the ingredients shine through in every bite. True to the restaurant’s tongue in cheek name, a play on “misfits”, the diverse menu is comprised of a vibrant assortment of dishes from a variety of Mediterranean geographies from Middle Eastern hummus, falafel and kebabs to Italian burrata, pastas and mussels to Spanish jamon, octopus and croquettes.

The menu is curated by Chef Duncan McCance who brings an extensive experience working across cafes in Melbourne, restaurants in London, wineries in Spain, farms in Bali and most recently organic produce providers in Singapore. Taking learnings from each of these areas of the industry, he has built the Miss Fitz menu with an eclectic mix of Mediterranean dishes highlighted by Grilled Lamb Belly with Green Yogurt over Grains and Almonds, Glazed Short Rib Braised for 15 Hours, Taramasalata, Charred Octopus with Sambal Matah and Spiced Cauliflower in Pomegranate, Celery and Chickpea Salad with Tahini Dressing.

Miss Fitz

The food menu fits perfectly with the bright, breezy atmosphere of Miss Fitz and the refreshing cocktails available at the warm and welcoming horseshoe bar. Enjoy signature gin and tonics and tall stunning spritzes ($15-21) such as the popular Aperol Spritz, the classic Italian orange, bubbly aperitif; Watermelon Crush with fresh squeezed watermelon juice, lemon, mint and vodka; or Peach Bubbles, comprised of peach puree, thyme, vodka and bubbles.

These drinks are a seamless complement with the vibrant décor of the bar and seating area, transporting you to the Mediterranean with wall-to-wall paintings that provide retro feelings of coastal islands across the region. You can almost feel and hear the Mediterranean waves as the curated sounds of music director DJ I.M.X flow throughout the day adding to Miss Fitz’ colourful, fresh and fun vibes.

Miss Fitz​​​​​​​

Whether date night, corporate dinner or an evening out with friends, Miss Fitz is perfect for any occasion. If you prefer wine over cocktails, don’t miss out on the reasonably priced wine list and “Drink Better Wine” deal. With an eclectic mix of wines from across the world, buy a first bottle and any second bottle purchase is 15% off, regardless of price.

On Mondays and Tuesdays, the deal is even better at 30% off the second bottle purchase. And if something more premium is to be desired, ask for the reserve list. Popular with those working in the neighbourhood, Miss Fitz also offers a business set lunch on weekdays. Choose from two courses or three courses (S$25 / S$28) and select from a daily selection of entrees, mains and desserts from the dinner menu.

Roxy​​​​​​​

As you plan your evenings, don’t forget to ask where to find Roxy, a glammed up but worn in cocktail bar and spirits room inspired by the back rooms and rock & roll nightclubs of 1970’s lower east side Manhattan – a great hidden enclave within Miss Fitz for after dinner shots and strong cocktails.

Perfect spot for a tipple or two, Miss Fitz boasts a gorgeous bar serving Mediterranean tapas, small and sharing plates. Located at The Sail, it is a handy Friday night spot for anyone working in the financial district.

I popped in for an evening interlude to experience Tapas Time which runs from 3 – 6pm daily. For only $3 a plate, these bite-sized canapes were outstanding.

I was intrigued by the sautéed artichoke and crispy chicken skin which tasted awesome! All conceptualized by consulting Chef Duncan who definitely has brought his extensive international experience to the table.

A must-have with these amazing canapes is a Miss Fitz gin & tonic. Made with Hendrick’s gin, cucumber bitters (a first for me) and Mediterranean tonic I totally loved it.

Being partial to bitter which cuts the sweet taste, it was a perfectly made beverage to start my evening with.  Presented in a beautiful large goblet with loads of ice, it matched my criteria of an appealing visual. 

The best way to start winding down! Bubbly fans, there is also Prosecco and Rosa, made with rose, fresh grapefruit juice and soda. A refreshing option!

More canapes arrived - a salmon tart with truffle honey and yoghurt, Iberico ham, crispy falafels and chicken pate en croute to name a few. I didn’t think I’d need dinner at this rate. At $3 a plate I felt portions were good.

Celebrating its second anniversary, Miss Fitz took me back to my sojourns in Spain where tapas bars are a dime a dozen. In fact I was lucky enough to be served on one occasion by a bar tender who waited on me aplenty and looked a replica of John Travolta.

Winding my mind back to the present, I was pleased to have been introduced to this enclave which also had a fabulous list of mains and desserts. Next time and perhaps a Tuesday when tapas is $3 a plate all day!

A good find I thought as I traipsed back to reality and finding my way home…..

Looking for an after work tipple with a bit of atmosphere we decided to check out Miss Fitz, a bar / restaurant located on the ground floor of The Sail complex.

Our immediate impression was we were back in 2019! Miss Fitz and the surrounding venues were vibing and it was only Wednesday – packed with energetic patrons and holding the promise of a relaxing good time. It seems the CBD has indeed returned and with it, the after work drinks crowd.

Miss Fitz presents a trendy, green, open concept with funky artwork all centred around the showpiece red and gold bar. With seats both inside and out it offers an al fresco sanctuary in the CBD with a retro Mediterranean vibe.

The menu is small and selective with a focus on fresh Mediterranean inspired fare, but still offers sufficient choice to keep all manner of dietary requirements satisfied. We started with the Castel Ventrano Olives - green olives marinated in olive oil, citrus and herbs ($8++). The Spiced Hummus ($12++) was a hit and it was well worth adding on the optional crab for only $4++ – a delicate seafood taste was a unique touch for such a classic, well-loved dip. The large portion of tender, juicy Charred Octopus added a touch of spice with it’s scrumptious sambal matah ($19++)

For the bigger plates we tried the colourful and eclectic Spiced Cauliflower and Chickpea Salad ($24++) with spinach, avocado, pomegranate and tahini dressing and the Glazed Short Rib ($22++) which is melt in your mouth tender after being braised for 15 hours.

Onto the drinks and cocktails are the way to go here – with twists on some well-loved classics. I loved the Lemon Spritz ($17++) - Italicus bergamot citrus liqueur, limoncello, prosecco and husband was impressed by the smoothness of the Whiskey Sour ($20++) - Monkey Shoulder Blended Scotch Whisky, bitters, meringue and lemon.

Miss Fitz is a welcome addition to the CBD bar scene and with most menu items under $30++ and most cocktails under $20++ it is easily one of the better value establishments on the island.

But our night did not end there…it only got better as tucked away in the back corner of Miss Fitz is an entirely new concept altogether – Roxy. Now I love a hidden small bar, it reminds me of nights out in the back alleys of Melbourne or the heady days spent in New York City and this one ticks all the boxes. With dimly lit red tones engulfing the 20 seater bar, a wall full of enticing bottles, rock & roll art and all the best rock and punk tunes of the 1970’s  – it’s a place where you can groove, chill and let the good times roll.

In a nod to its NYC owner’s hometown, the cocktails are spirit forward classic tipples mischievously mixed with some 1970’s rock and roll. The CBGB Swizzle combines Plantation Pineapple Rum, Cherry Heering Liqueur, Pierre Ferrand Dry Curacao Orange Bitter Liqueur, Fresh Lime and Orgeat Nutty Syrup – and is a riff on a classic Mai Tai, named after one of the most iconic nightclubs in Manhattan’s lower east side, CBGB, widely considered to be the birthplace of punk. The Factory, named after Andy Warhol’s iconic workplace blends Melati Botanical Aperitif, Mancino Rosso Vermouth, Mancino Secco Vermouth, St George Raspberry Liqueur , Aromatic Bitters and is topped with fluffy orange juice.

Roxy’s menu is all about the cocktails – from their signature classics to their Cocktail Flights where you can get three different variations of either a Negroni, Manhattan or a Martini for only $55++. They also might be one of the only bars in Singapore serving Boiler Makers – a simple shot served with a beer, a tradition founded on the docks of NYC in the 1800s.

So get your gang together and find your way (either via Roxy or the unmarked door in the loading dock of The Sail) to this this glammed up “dive” bar inspired by the back rooms and rock & roll nightclubs of 1970's Lower East Side Manhattan.

We all want a neighbourhood bar that allows us to have a relaxed drinking experience but with good food and yet it seems so simple but really is quite hard for us to find. 

Well it's clear that Miss Fitz has answered the prayers of the community of the Sail at Marina Bay and nearby patrons. 

Bringing in Chef Duncan who I’ve personally worked with 1 on 1 and had the fortunate pleasure of experiencing his passion for working with high quality ingredients but knowing that if it's healthy without the taste, then what's the point!

So the menu ranges from small bites to larger sharing plates, a fantastic selection of wines covering the Mediterranean that complements these dishes and the type of menu where you know all your guests will be satisfied.

My standout favourites for fresh, flavoursome and exciting combinations was the Charred Octopus with Sambal Matah. This dish is a popular choice with the Italian, Spanish and Greek versions all being so familiar so I was excited to taste this locally inspired spicy version.

Then Grilled Lamb Belly with Green Yogurt over Grains and Almonds was a staple dish for me. It had so many exciting flavours and textures in one plate. I would be happy just to eat this alone as the experience was like 3 tapas dishes on 1 plate. From the green yoghurt sauce which could be a fantastic dip on its own, but topped with mixed grains and then tender pieces of lamb to compliment my tempranillo, I was a happy girl!

I’m excited for this place and will be looking out for their themed events where they get to showcase opportunities for them to play even more. Oh yes, top tip, if you decide you wanna make more of the night, then look out for the hidden speakeasy Roxy Bar behind for a nostalgic American rock music and curated cocktail experience.
