To step into Alati is to step out of Singapore and into a Greek taverna with blindingly white-washed walls, cerulean blue accents and sunkissed food. This temple to Greek and Mediterranean cuisine is found along Tanjong Pagar’s Amoy Street, featuring a kitchen stocked with ingredients flown in from the Aegean Sea. The menus are curated by a Greek master of wines and a locally-renowned Singaporean chef, while the setting and service are impeccable – an unmissable spot for Greek food.
NB: a minimum spend of $50+ p/p applies for bookings of 6 or more on Fridays and Saturdays. Last orders on any day are 1:45pm for lunch and 9:45pm for dinner.

Renowned Singaporean chef Leong Khai Git has worked with his crew of professional Greek chefs (themselves flown in to Tanjong Pagar fresh from the Aegean!) to curate a menu of grilled, salt-baked, deep-fried, and right-off-the-bone delicacies that are a peerless summary of what Greek and Mediterranean cuisine is all about. Far more focused than your usual Greek restaurant, Alati’s specific offering is Cycladic cuisine, dishes from the archipelago of islands stretching southeast from the Greek mainland. To accompany this divine food, Git has worked with Konstantinos Lazarakis, one of the most prestigious sommeliers in Greece, to develop a list of Greek wines like the crisp white Tselepos Mantinia Moschofilero and the divine red Alpha Hedgehog Xinomavro, plus beers, spirits, and liqueurs exclusive to Alati’s cellars.
Alati’s name means salt in Greek, a moniker that besides evoking the Aegean Sea and the Cyclades, bodes well when it comes to our favourite of this superlative Singapore Greek restaurant’s signature dishes, really any number of dishes: the salt-baked fresh fish. This technique is the litmus test for any Greek seafood kitchen, the salt-crust sealing in the fish’s moistness, and here it’s applied to the daily catch, caught, packed in ice and flown in overnight from the ports of Chalkida and Thessaloniki in the Mediterranean (carabineros and langoustines, but also other rare species like the European seabass and red porgy) or sourced locally, depending always on seasonal availability and with freshness held paramount. While seafood is big at Alati’s Tanjong Pagar headquarters (don’t forget the giouvetsi, a dish of shrimps, orzo pasta and saffron), there’s plenty of meaty grills and vegetarian options, too, all cleaving close to the traditions of Greek and Cycladic cuisine. Feta cheese deep-fried in filo with honey and sesame, keftedes (meatballs with potatoes and tzatziki dip), marinated chicken souvlaki and gyros pork. Booking a table at Alati’s Amoy Street restaurant is to be transported to Greece itself – kali orexi!

Friendly and helpful staff who recommended items on menu to us. Lovely waitress was helped me select my coffee. Food arrived quickly and everything was delicious! Will recommend to friends and come back again.
Highly recommended! The salt baked fish and mini lobsters were really yummy. Service was very good and really nice ambience. Desserts weee great too. Really enjoyed my dinner and will definitely revisit again!
It was a wise decision to spend our wedding anniversary at Alati. The restaurant was bustling, but we felt like we had our own intimate space. The complimentary bread came with really good olive oil. The spinach pie was exquisite, so was the piping hot potato salad. And how can I forget the salt-baked sea bream that was paired with 2 delectable sauces? The service was first-class, as well. I will be back to patronise it again!
Absolutely brilliant food, wonderful staff and a fantastic atmosphere. One of the best restaurants in Singapore, we will definitely go back again and I would recommend Alati to anyone.
I loved everything about Alati - the service, food, ambience, drinks etc. White washed walls and interestingly laid out tables with splashes of blue really gave it a Greek feel. The service was lovely, and the food superb. There were four of us and we shared three entrees and three main courses. We had no room for dessert, however they brought out a complimentary baklava and a chocolate dessert with a candle in it as it was one of our table's birthday. To start with, the lovely Dakos salad which transported me back to the one I had last year in Paros. The other entrees were fyllo-wrapped feta (with honey) - crispy on the outside and soft and gooey in the middle, and the delicious taramosalata with pita bread (charged extra). For mains grilled fish, Mousaka and the Goronopolou - slow-roased crispy pork shoulder. The food was authentic and so delicious - We had a couple of bottles of wine priced at around $75 each. It wasn't cheap but it didn't matter - it was a wonderful night and if you enjoy good, authentic Greek food then I thoroughly recommend Alati. Yamas!
The interior of Alati is gorgeous. I felt like we were transported to Santorini with the blue and white dominant colors of the space. We were nested very comfortably at our table, surrounded by tons of cushions (maybe abit too many??). The menu had a good variety of Mediterranean food. We ordered a couple of sides (the fried calamari was delish!), a 600g salt baked sea bass and a chocolate mousse dessert for 3 of us. The sea bass was fresh and sweet. It was quite a sight to see them bring out the massive baked fish, peel the flesh off the bones (literally, the flesh melted off the bones!) and serve it to you. No doubt, it was tasty but at a price of $78, I don't think I'd order again unless I'm with a bigger group. I got my head mixed up about Moussaka and Shakshuka, I thought the first was the latter and order a side of pita bread to dip with. When the moussaka came, I was rather disappointed that I got it all wrong and was a little weird to eat it with pita bread now. I wish the server could have told me and advised me accordingly. That's probably the only negative that night. The moussaka was yummy though! The servers were warm and friendly which is never a bad thing. We were assigned to a foreign server, she had thick accent which I found rather hard to understand but she tried her best! Overall, very pleasant experience. I probably will only revisit with a bigger group because it's quite pricey. Our bill came up to $193 for 3 of us.
We went to Alati for lunch. It has a nice and chill ambience, and attentive service staff. Among the 3 of us, we had the cucumber and feta cheese salad (the feta was really good), grilled squid (this was done perfectly), grilled sardines (a little too fishy for me, personally, but my friends liked them), a dip and the grilled meat platter for 2 ( that came with chicken souvlaki, lamb cutlets - these were done perfectly, and meat pattie). We had no room for dessert (which was a shame) but had coffee (which was a bit bitter and over-roasted). We will go back again as overall it was a good experience and we enjoyed our meal.
Great restaurant with great food and service. Party of 5 paid about 60 bucks each for a meal including salad, fried calamari (starter), grilled fish (main), grilled chicken skewer (main) and moussaka (--> this was so so good!!!), and chocolate mousse for dessert, and we ordered a bottle of wine too. Everything was great except that there was a big party of about 20 pax sitting opposite us which made the whole restaurant so noisy that I literally can't hear my friends sitting 2 seats away (I think the other patrons noticed the noise too) though you can't really blame the other table, they seem to be having a great time! Otherwise, the restaurant itself was great! Happy to have tried this place :-) Note: We brought a bottle of champagne and the restaurant policy for byob is $40 for corkage but if you buy a bottle from them, no corkage charge, which was really fair and reasonable so we bought a bottle of red wine from them :-) great policy!!
Really good food and Greece wine. We had a great night at Alati. The only thing we feel uncomfortable is there was a bit noise in the restaurant. I think the problem is the design of the roof. We needed to talk really loud, otherwise we can't hear each other.
The ambience was great, very helpful staffs and prompt service. Food was delicious! My friend who have never tried Greek food, she really likes it very much! We really enjoyed our dinner! Will recommend Alati to anyone. Thanks so much! 😊
Food was great & atmosphere was clean & nice. Abit hard to celebrate a quiet birthday for my mother on a rowdy friday night. No intimate touches. And we were a family of 7. One serving of bread was about 4 to 5? slices, so we ordered two more and was a little surprised to see an additional of $8 charged to the bill. Wish they advised us that water or bread was chargeable. For the pricing there, I believe bread should really be free. Especially if one basket does not feed all 7 of us.
The restaurant is located in a beautiful heritage area of Singapore. Hard to park but it is SO worthed! Get a cab to go there, also because the wine is a just try! The ambience is fresh and elegant at the same time, very pleasant to the eye, welcoming and relaxing. The staff is very very kind and really efficient! The food is amazing, very fresh (fish is flown 3 times a week!) and tasty. Thumb up!
Delicious food, lovely decor. It was a busy Friday night with most tables taken, service was good, but could have been more attentive as we needed to ask for another round of drinks and getting water refills. Would recommend to friends to try 'Alati'.
Had a very pleasant experience at Alati today. The lobster pasta and mousaka was excellent. Service could have been more attentive. We had too much food on the table, and the staff could have cleared our table faster to help with the overcrowding.
This is a beautiful restaurant that brings you to Greece from the decor to the food. I loved the whitewashed walls, flashes of blue and colored oils on the wall. The food from salt baked fish to octopus were also well executed and seasoned. We were even greeted with a visit from the chef who included complimentary sweets. I wish the prices were a little lower, but would still return.
we had meatball & fish, all very yummie, even the fries & sauce are nice. This is my second visit here, will definitely come again next time. Thank you Alati for giving us opportunity to taste the yummie Greek food.'
The service staff were attentive, the ambience was nice and the food was quite good (the cod fish was a bit too salty) although a bit pricey. We sat at the round table for 4 and the spot light was shining in a way that it reflects on the knife, which can be mildly blinding and irritating. To avoid this, I had to shift the knife to the left making it inconvenient as my knife hand is on the right.
I love the decor of this place. Went for lunch once so decided to bring visiting family there for dinner. Food was excellent, wish we had shared everything rather than getting one dish each (next table over shared and it seemed like a great idea). 2 small things: the wine per bottle is fairly expensive and also the mains were served at different times which I feel is a pity as some people are eating while others wait.
I like Alati. We bought a cake from outside for celebrate my friend's birthday. They had a good services and all of staff are friendly. About the dish, delicious and reasonable price. Quiet environment suitable for friend gathering.
This was a wonderful dining experiene. The ambience and setting were serene and bright, the food was well seasoned and cooked perfectly, and the owner and wait staff were very attentive. The stars of the meal were vegetable fritters with a creamy zucchini filing and fish baked in salt which was very tender. The owner even threw in free dessert! I'd definitely return.
the food was good, service was great. only negative point of the experience was when I walked in. the host had no customer service skills in my opinion, instead of saying 'hello and welcome' with a smile, I got a 'yes?' and misery look on her face....i had to say 'I have a reservation'. to be honest, I was prepared to walk out if my friend told me just to ignore it. such a simple thing, a pleasant greeting and acknowledgement, yet so difficult I am discovering. I won't be going back anytime soon.
Excellent food and excellent service from the moment we were sat down until we left. Has been consistently good at my 4th visit to Alati. Will keep going back.
Boasts an authentic Greek atmosphere. Food was exquisitely delicious, especially when paired with divine wine. Order the salt-baked sea bass. The Greek waitress serving up the fish is an interesting sight to behold. She was friendly too and enlightened us a lot about her home country. I can't wait to go again to try out the meat dishes!
A lovely mediterranean feel to the restaurant! The food choice was large and everything looked great on the menu and think it might be better with a bigger group so you can share some of the starters. I wasn't sure about Greek wines so we stuck to the international page. The service was efficient when needed but otherwise left us to ourselves which was nice. Definitely be back again!
Food is fantastic! Atmosphere is great! A definite must go to for all seafood lovers, even though you may not be a Greek food lover per se (they are hard to come by), you will definitely enjoy this one. The seafood is as fresh as it gets, all air flown from Greece!! Will definitely be back.
Lovely clean fresh white interior (a little chilly, bring a scarf!) and delicious fresh bread and dips. Menu is slightly strange layout - not easy to navigate starters and main dishes, instead divided by classics and other categories. Not sure I agree with that. Mussels very very disappointing (salty, mainly shells). Ordered badly, should have gone for some more traditional Greek dishes which I think they probably do a better job at - I'd take mussels out of the classic part of the menu...
We enjoyed the food and the ambience at Alati and will be back for more. Will definitely recommend the restaurant to our friends who love Greek cuisine.
Had the set lunch which was very good and defo good value for lunch. I had the starter of grilled squid which, while a little too cooked, was very tasty. The moussaka was a little too salty for me - I feel that the flavour of the grilled aubergine was masked by the salt. Portion looked small but combined with the starter, was defo more than enough. It was quiet in the restaurant because only 4 tables were filled.
The restaurant was very nicely decorated and reminded me of my trip to Mykonos. Food wise, the dips and pita is not to be missed. The salad of tomatoes, cucumber, olives and feta is not to be missed too. Grilled sea bass was pretty good, however due to the small fish that was available we didn't get to try the salt baked variety.
Second time at Alati. The salt baked sea bass was once again very good. Service is efficient. Greek wine interesting. Great atmosphere. I would definitely return.
Customer service is very outstanding. I rarely see such service in Singapore restaurants except in hotels. As for the food, 2 out of 4 meals we ordered are very good, while the other 2 are so so. The price is actually a little expensive from how it looks, but the service makes up for it. So I am giving it a 5/6.
Very busy Friday evening as they were fully booked and had to turn away walk-ins. Good grilled fish, they removed the bone. Vegetables were ok, good sized portion but covered in too much vinaigrette dressing and herbs. Octopus was good sized portion, a little heavy with herbs. Tzatziki dip a little overpriced for size of serving ($16) and should come with 1 pita bread, and then pay for more if needed. Water charge $5 per person.
Restaurant was right in the heart of CBD. Always passed by the eye catching restaurant which reminds one of Greece but never had a chance to visit. Finally gotten all my colleagues to visit the place together. Restaurant had really nice ambient and good food. Would definitely return ~
Loved the food , especially all the starters. The fava dip and the meatballs a must order. The place got quite noisy towards the end of our meal which in a way got us going from there to a quieter place, so did not get a chance to try the dessert . Will recommend it surely!
An authentic Greek dining experience. Amazing taste and quality. A must do. Wonderful decor and service to compliment. Fresh produce and wine imported from Greece makes it extra special. The Executive Chef takes pride and care with every dish served. Can't wait to go back.
Service was good. Set lunch was very average. Pork was dry, chicken was OK. However, we saw dishes which another table had ordered (octopus and beef), which looked quite good. Perhaps the ala carte menu is better. Pity though, as I always feel restaurants should try to do a better set lunch to entice diners to come back for dinner another time. Unlikely to go back though.
Lobster pasta was great but we didn't expect to have to "dismantle" the lobster by ourselves. In the end, the business lunch turned out to be quiet messy for us and our client. Lucky thing is we are close with the client so all was good. Service staff were great and super helpful.
Great food and great service once again at Alati. Myself and colleagues have been here many times now and we've not had a bad experience yet.
It's my second time at Alati. Excellent greek food (especially the salt baked fish!), lovely service and homely ambience. Highly recommended and definitely heading back again.
Nice setting, not quite sure of the cuisine though - lamb chops with fries (chips ) is not what I call Greek!. Lacks attitude and soul, which is always the case in any restaurant in Singapore. The big question is, would I recommend to friends or go back? The answer, maybe!
Alati has ample choices, excellent food, and great ambience. Staff is polite, courteous and caters to your needs. It is a place worth going again.
Delicious all round ! Loved the clean white/sky blue Santorini decor (clean bathroom too) the staff could not have been more helpful and accommodating... The food was absolutely scrummy .... Actually fabulous ... I'll definitely go back ... Soon 😃
Beautifully laid out restaurant. The menu was just the right size and had something for everyone. The food was nice but not great. Sadly it was really let down by the service. We were constantly out of water and had to call staff right at the back of the restaurant for service. They also got our bill wrong which luckily we noticed and changed. I wouldn't rush back or say it is a must go which is a shame.
One of our favorite restaurants. Excellent fresh Greek food ( fish cooked in salt is delicious), friendly staff and bright ambience. There is only one thing that could make this place better and that would be to add everyone's favorite Greek dessert, baklava, to the menu.
The food was awesome, haloumi and the seabream a highlight. The tasting menu offers very good value along with the wine pairing. The service was mostly excellent. All in all we had a wonderful time. Pretty crowded though
Food and excellent service by James was excellent !! Will definitely revisit . Fish was superb and we enjoyed it Ambience was good except a bit more work to he done for acoustics as it can get noisy
Traditional whitewash Greek setting, very pleasant atmosphere. Food was fresh and good selection available - would definitely recommend the meat platter for main course. Friendly staff... perhaps not always the most attentive, but didn't detract from experience. Would definitely recommend for lovers of Greek cuisine.
Not very authentic at all and at the same time quite overpriced (though granted dinner portions are very generous). What was worse is that we couldn't really detect any true Greek flavors and in general the taste was lacking 'oomph'. Grilled king prawns were slathered with the same sauce as the chicken souvlaki and bread was burnt. Felt more like visiting a bad touristy spot than what was supposedly one of the better Greek restaurants in Singapore. Disappointed and no reason to come back (at least not for the food, perhaps for the nice greek taverna design, at least that will give you the feel of eating in a Greek restaurant..).
Atali staff was wonderful and they organised well. They checked the other reservations properly. And most importantly the food there is amazing!!! Fresh and taste great! Also if you want to feel "Greece", visit there! Highly recommended!
Very nice food. Not too heavy for the palette. I very much loved the Dakos salad. Salt baked fish was delicious and well done. Can get noisy indoors. Otherwise sit at the table outside. Great for sharing.
