Dining at MUSEO Quayside Isle is not just about its food, but the entire concept and experience. MUSEO (pronounced ‘moo-zay-o’) means museum in Italian, quite an appropriate name since this is one of the more uncommon places which allow both art-jamming and food.

Yes, it is opened by the same people behind Arteastiq Boutique Tea House at Mandarin Gallery, known for their extensive tea collective and social painting space.

The process of traveling to MUSEO already feels like experiencing a holiday – coming to the picturesque Quayside Isle, watching private yachts parked at Sentosa Cove, and proceeding up to the second storey which feels part-club, part-gallery, part-restaurant. Gorgeous view by the way.

The entire mood can momentarily make you feel extremely rich and luxurious. Or poor. Like who owns all these yachts?

Loved its stylish black modern décor. Get the sofa seats next to the windows if you can. Nothing beats drinking tea and people-watching on a lazy afternoon. (Spotted Zoe Tay, Vivian Lai and Mark Lee.)

The menu is quite extensive, or peculiar, whichever way you see it. There is a range of entrees, sandwiches, desserts and dietary cocktails. The recommended feature is a Mezzanine set, where you can customise by choosing 4 dishes at $39. They make good starters to share amongst a group of friends. (Mezzanine means ‘in the middle’ architecturally).

Creatively served in mid-sized glass cups, I was recommended the Roast Pork Belly, Barbequed Squid, Deep Fried Silver Fish and Soft Shell Chilli Crabs, all named after Picasso’s masterpieces such as “Three Musicians” and “Joys of Life”. Wait, isn’t Picasso Spanish?

I was somewhat expecting a more Italian or European savour to the dishes, though all four tasted rather Asian due to its accompanying sauces and preparation methods. Not that I minded it at all. The Pork Belly was good stuff (If I closed my eyes to eat, my mind will go “Cantonese sio bak”!).

The main, such as Salmon & Red Pesto Spaghetti ($28) was also decent, the red capsicum pesto sauce was de-li-cious, but somehow doesn’t make you crave for more. It’s the fish.

Many come to MUSEO for its weekend High Tea Buffet ($48++ from 1.30pm to 5pm) with a range of more than 30 treats and dishes, perfectly complemented with specialty tea sets.

There are many reasons to like MUSEO, especially if you are a tea and arts person who just want to unwind on your day off.

  4. I love the nice ambience at Museo. How I wish to taste the food there while enjoying the nice scenery for Sentosa Cove.

  5. Thank you for your introduction on Museo! It sounds like a unique place to enjoy a quiet afternoon without the hassle of crowd. Love the layout of the restaurant and can’t wait to visit it =)

  8. I love to have a delicious meal in the cozy restaurant while relaxing and enjoying the beautiful surrounding views.

  9. The whole atmosphere feels so laid back and different from the usual restaurant spots in Singapore. Also, I like it that they have proper presentable, creative looking food to keep with the artistic flair of their brand MUSEO.

  10. Who would resist such gastronomic delights in a prime, luxurious setting?! I wouldn’t for sure and I guess I need it to cool off my agony from the months of job hunting.

  11. I am definitely a tea lover and everything from MUSEO looks absolutely gorgeous! Thanks for sharing Daniel! Hope I can win this giveaway hehe!

  12. Loving the nice atmosphere, food and location of the restaurant. It’s definitely a great place to relax from the stressful and hectic working life.

  13. This place fits all my criteria of a new venue which i’m keen to try – Food, great atmosphere and location, away from the main city crowd to destress over a good meal. Blissful…..

  14. Would love to try the 4 combos which are presented & served in 4 cute glasses. Definitely lovin the Roast Pork Belly, Barbequed Squid, Deep Fried Silver Fish and Soft Shell Chilli Crabs combi! <3

  15. I have been to Arteastiq and MUSEO is yet another addition to the Arteastiq Group. Opening MUSEO near the quayside at Sentosa Cove brings another different kind of atmosphere for dining and perspective in art-jamming. I love chillax-ing in an art-inspired place and especially it is located away from the bustling city. In addition, by the look of the presentation of the food tantalise my taste buds and can't wait to be there to try the mezzanine. My love for their drinks will definitely entice me to go back for more and trying out their Weekend High-Tea buffet too.

  17. The food looks delicious, and with the ambiance (yacht view/ sea view and also the deco of the place), i think it is worth to try! and the sofa~such a comfortable getaway from busy life, best to have a piece of cake, with my favourite latte to kill the time there! can’t wait to try!

  18. Love the atmosphere it provided! coupled with good food… hmmmm… quite an enjoyment for the people seeking a treat =)

  19. I am very interested in the Roast Pork Belly, Barbequed Squid, Deep Fried Silver Fish and Soft Shell Chilli Crabs that you had that was recommended! The surrounding looks cozy too! Hope to win and bring my family for a tasty meal!

  20. LOVED, liked & shared and cheers to Dan the man!:)
    As a gastronome, I strongly believe, having high tea at MUSEO is like heading to a prom!
    There is nothing not to look forward to! A magical sensory trip full of exhilaration! A buffet that has you salivating just by looking at it, the sound of yatch flags flapping, smelling the sea breeze in peacefulness against the solemn ambience- the cherry on top of the cake, having the taste of excellence in your mouth to savour.
    *sings* that’s the way uh huh uh huh! I like it uh huh uh huh!;)
