Are you looking for the perfect night out with a) good food, b) lovely ambience, c) attentive service, coupled with a value-for-money promotion?
The Lighthouse Restaurant & Rooftop Bar at The Fullerton Hotel Singapore has always been one of our favourite choices. [Check out the the promoat the end of the post.]
Female friends often ask me for suggestions for a “Girls’ Night Out” but hey, why are the guys excluded? Just joking, I do tag along SOMETIMES.
The additional criteria is that it shouldn’t be impossible to get to, with food that can keep the whole group happy. You can just imagine the long list of options we have in our chat groups.
If you have not been to The Lighthouse Rooftop Bar at The Fullerton Hotel yet, the view is particularly breathtaking.
Pardon the cheesiness, but it literally “Takes my breath away…”
You get an unobstructed panoramic view of the Marina Bay and the city skyline. On one side, you can observe the hustle-bustle of the CBD from afar; and on another, the iconic Singapore Flyer and Marina Bay Sands landmarks.
Did you know that The Lighthouse Restaurant & Rooftop Bar is located at the apex, the very same location where lighthouse keepers used to guide ships during historical days?
Just amazing to know that we are standing at the exact location.
Tip 1: Come right after work (assuming normal office hours), and you can just bask in the beauty of the golden hour, or in photography terms we call it the ‘magic hour’ where the skies translate into beautiful hues of purple, blue and orange.
Tip 2: Do not miss the nightly Marina Bay Light Show.
The Lighthouse Restaurant features authentic Southern Italian cuisine, prepared by Chef Carlo Marengoni with specialties and quality produce from Campania, Sardinia and Sicily.
The Rooftop Bar offers Stuzzichini (antipasti), Formaggi (selection of Italian cheeses with Chef’s Recommended Condiment) and Dolci (desserts), along with Prosecco Cocktails, Wine, Champagne and Lighthouse ‘Wonders’ – some of their own mixes.
Our group’s favourite was the Fritto Misto ($29), made of Crispy Fried Seafood with Smoked Pepper Sauce.
Who could resist a plate of mixed fry – deep fried calamari, prawns and whitebait coated in light, crispy batter dipped in house-made spicy sauce?
The Patatine Tartufate ($16) Truffles Aroma French Fries was also one of the first dishes to be cleared.
These chunky thick cut fries made of fluffy potatoes were lightly seasoned, drizzled with aromatic truffle, and so, so addictive. We couldn’t stop our fingers from reaching out.
A selection of Bruschetta is also available.
Other than classical Bruschetta ($16) topped with Tuscan tomatoes, oregano and garlic, options include Bruschetta Lardo E Rosmarino ($18) with garlic, rosemary, thin-sliced lard, and Bruschetta Burrata E Prosciutto ($23) with burrata cheese and cured ham.
My favourite was the Burrata E Prosciutto ($23) with soft burrata cheese and parma ham on toast marinated with basil, salt and olive oil.
All in all, we had a jolly good time sharing stories (and secrets) over Italian bar bites and drinks, with a view to beat. Quite amazing actually.
