Situated at Marina Bay, close to the estuary of the Singapore River, the Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay is the nation’s leading performing arts centre and plays host to a continuous lineup of programmes ranging in music, dance and theatre put up by local and international acts throughout the year. Fondly known as “the Durian” among locals since its exterior resembles the thorny ‘King of Fruits’, the Esplanade houses a concert hall and theatre which seat 1,600 and 2,000 respectively, as well as a variety of studios, performance and visual arts spaces, a library, and an array of shops and restaurants.

Far more than just one of the busiest arts centres in the world, the Esplanade has many restaurants to appease its hungry patrons, too – much to the delight of food-loving Singaporeans. Any regular concert-goer would know how important it is to have a spread of delicious eats within reach prior to a show, as well as a great selection of watering holes where you can spend the rest of the evening recapping the highs and lows of the performance you’d just seen. Thankfully for us, the Esplanade has both restaurants and bars which hardly play second fiddle to the acts on offer, and they cater to a variety of tastes, occasions and budgets. Whether you’re looking to stop for a quick bite or to indulge in a romantic anniversary dinner with your significant other, you won’t be short of options when it comes to the restaurants at Esplanade.
Just like how its array of performances come from all over the world, the gamut of cuisines at the restaurants in Esplanade, too, boast of international origins, providing something for everyone. Tuck into your favourite local dishes at Old School Delights, or kick back with your pick of Japanese sake and a smorgasbord of sushi and small bites at Tomo Izakaya. In fact, why not combine the best of both eastern and western flavours at Supply & Demand? This well-loved fusion restaurant at the Esplanade incorporates Italian and Southeast Asian influences across its menu, making it possible – and acceptable – to have satay nachos and a mixed seafood pizza together in the same meal.
Given its splendid location by the Singapore River, it’s hardly surprising that some of the most stunning views on the island can be found at the restaurants at Esplanade. Grab a table by the waterfront at Alter Ego, the sister restaurant of the wildly popular A Poke Theory, or admire the city’s skyline from the roof terrace at Orgo, a one-of-a-kind dining spot known for its modern European fare as much as its mixology. You’ll never run out of choices in places to eat and drink at the Esplanade. Reap the best of all that its restaurants have to offer by searching and booking online with Quandoo.
