5 hidden restaurants in Singapore for a good weekend date out


When going out for a date, the idea is to spend quality time with that special someone. Most can agree ­that a good ­meal ­with a special ­someone ­in a nice ­environment is always a great way to spend time together. It’s no surprise that going out for a romantic meal is on the top of most people’s date night list. You don’t want it to end up being a crowded, loud, and uncomfortable affair. If you want to be able to go somewhere that is more private and secluded, here are five restaurants that we personally like.

1. Spruce @Phoenix Park

Spruce @Phoenix Park

Nestled within the greenery along Tanglin Road (in close proximity to Orchard Road), SPRUCE Phoenix Park greets you to an illusion of dining in a treehouse, giving you a garden-like ambiance. We like that it’s situated within the town area yet away from the crowd.

Address: 320 Tanglin Rd, Singapore 247980

2. Cacio e Pepe Italian Restaurant

Cacio e Pepe Italian Restaurant

We just learned that “Cacio e Pepe” when translated means “Cheese & Pepper”, which are also the two things that go well together. Tucked away in a quiet suburban location, they aim to create a relaxed Italian dining experience with authentic Italian cuisine using the highest quality ingredients.

Address: 3 Chu Lin Rd, Singapore 669890

3. Bakalaki Greek Taverna

Bakalaki Greek Taverna

We had a good taste of authentic Greek Dishes when we first checked out Bakalaki Greek Taverna. The dining experience did give us a good perspective into the other side of Greece. So, if you have never tried a decent Greek cuisine in your life, you have to add them to your list.

Address: 3 Seng Poh Rd, Singapore 168891

4. Woody Family Cafe

Woody Family Cafe

If you like secluded areas and don’t mind traveling out of the way, we recommend heading all the way up north to Sembawang. The experience? In our opinion, it’s an eclectic interior that matches the menu there. The moment you step into Woody’s Cafe, a huge grin will spread across your face.

Address: 12F Andrews Ave, Singapore 759930

5. Cafe Colbar

Cafe Colbar

If you want somewhere affordable, yet looking for a different experience to dine in, this rustic old school kopitiam will be an interesting one. Once you step into Cafe Colbar, you will feel like you are being transported back into the colonial era. If you are there on a hot sunny afternoon, be sure to grab yourself some craft beers. To get here, you might want to consider driving there instead.

PS: We also found out something very interesting, that this cafe was formerly a canteen for the British army.

Address: 9A Whitchurch Rd, Singapore 138839
