5 Romantic Restaurants for Dates, The Budget Edition
After I posted on the 5 Best Romantic Restaurants in Singapore , readers thought that Jaan, Ocean Restaurant and Waku Ghin could be somewhat pricey on the wallets, and asked for more budget restaurants.
Here are some 5 additional 5 Romantic restaurants for dates, with a budget. Meant for students, those who just started work, or feel that the company is more important than food & ambience.
I know money very hard to earn, and cheap restaurant food is almost getting extinct here. We just have to find!
#01-69 Changi City Point The Oasis, 5 Changi Business Park Central 1 Singapore 66047669 (Expo MRT)
Opening Hours: 11:00am – 12:00am Daily
There are some places in Singapore worth traveling for, in this case, to the far east for a ‘designer bistro’ called Table Manners. The outdoor seating area of Table Manners is set in the garden at The Oasis at Changi City Point. A restaurant with scenery and a sense of humour.
The food looks simple in appearance, but packs a punch. Pastas are at $17.00 to $19.00 such as the Truffle Capellini with Bull’s Eye Organic Egg ($19.00), while mains range from $18.00 – $24.00. Don’t miss the The designer cocktails by Bar Stories. Their Valentine’s Day set is at $52 per person. (Read: Table Manners at Changi City Point)
Blisshouse Theme Restaurant
6 Eu Tong Sen Street, #03-21 The Central Singapore 059817 (Clarke Quay MRT), Tel: +65 6225 5532 [email protected]
Opening Hours: 12pm – 11pm (Mon-Sun)
Blisshouse calls itself the “beautiful Garden of Eden”. I call it the most girly restaurant in Singapore. Walking in, you almost feel you are attending a wedding with lots and lots of teddy bears, carriages, swings, carpeted fake grass, and white-pinky décor.
Some of their recommended food are Blisshouse Supreme Pizza ($24), Seafood Spagehetti ($26.00) and USDA Boneless Short Ribs ($34.00). Slightly pricey for its food quality, but people are really here to take photos – which is why it is popular with birthdays and wedding receptions.
Suntec City Mall, #B1-128/129, 3 Temasek Boulevard, Singapore 038983 (Promenade MRT), Tel: ++65 6690 7569
Opening Hours: 11.30am to 9.30pm Daily

The word entrecôte in French means “between the ribs”, created in the city of romance Paris during the 1930s. Unlike other steak restaurants where you can choose your cut, L’Entrecôte serves just one cut of the steak in between the sirloin and ribeye, which is the traditional definition of “Entrecôte” steaks.
At this branch of L’Entrecôte Suntec City, all sets are served with a welcome drink of Kir (French cocktail made with blackcurrant liqueur topped up with white wine), fresh walnut green salad and unlimited golden crispy fries made with BF15 potatoes. Unlimited. The light set is at $19.90++. Suddenly, French food feels affordable. (Read: L’Entrecôte at Suntec City Mall))
5 Purvis Street Talib Court #01-04 Singapore 188584 (Bugis MRT), Tel: +65 6333 3121 (No Reservations)
Opening Hours: 12pm – 2:15pm, 6pm – 9:15pm (Mon-Sat), 6pm – 9pm (Sun)
14 Scotts Road Far East Plaza #01-07B Singapore 228213, Tel: +6736 1121 (No Reservations)
Opening Hours: 11:30am – 9:30pm (Mon-Sat), 11:30am – 9:00pm (Sun)
The two boys behind Saveur turned it from a kopitiam stall to two restaurants offering affordably-priced French cuisine to the masses. This is where you can find Duck Leg Confit at $12.90, Chicken Thigh Roulade at $9.90, Foie Gras at $7.90 (it is duck though nevertheless), and their signature Angel Hair Pasta at $4.90.
A restaurant meal that is cheap and affordable, the downsize is in its long queue. But hey, Valentine’s Day meal is at $69.90++ per couple and reservations are allowed ([email protected])
Spuds & Apron
109 Mount Faber Road, Level 2 Singapore 099203, Tel: +65 6377 9688
Opening Hours: 11am – 11pm (Sun-Wed), 11am – 12:30am (Thurs), 11am – 2am (Fri-Sat)

Spuds & Aprons in on top of Mount Faber, overlooking Sentosa with an air-conditioned dining room or alfresco garden. According to them, their “iconic restroom” has the most breath-taking view. (Take a picture, of the scenery, after you are done with your business yah).
They serve Western and Modern Asia cuisine, thus with dishes such as Chilli Crab in a Tux ($12), Tobiko Crusted Cod Fillet ($28), Crispy Pork Belly ($26) and Chempedak Bread & Butter Pudding ($10). It is just a bit hard to get up there (and down), but ample parking lots are available if you drive.
Most of these restaurants here should set you back by about $50 per person on a usual 3-course dinner date.
I am still looking for 2-3 course set dinners priced below $25, with reasonable quality, ambience and not such a long queue. Let me know if you have any recommendations!
