An entire nation being in love with food, it comes at no surprise that we want to show our love through food as well. While some still hunt for the most romantic restaurants, other advanced Romeos (and Juliets) are taking control over the situation by selecting both place and food. Here are some of the most romantic places to have a private dinner in Singapore according to chefs.
Regarded as one of Singapore’s last kept secrets, Lazarus Island is indeed quite special. Clubvivre Private Chef Matteo Pertoldi remembers serving a three-course dinner at the beach for a young Singaporean couple. Cooking seafood right by the sea as the sunsets into the ocean was even special for him, says chef Matteo.
As Singapore gets more and more fancy rooftop bars, those on next door on a HDB are often forgotten. However, many HDB rooftops, such as on 261 Waterloo Street, have an incredible charm and a nostalgic feel to it. Clubvivre Private Chef Benjamin Fong once grilled an American style BBQ for a couple on a HBD rooftop – “it was one of the most special, unique and romantic things I have seen someone do”.
Instead of chasing the latest restaurant opening and queuing for an hour, which totally kills all romance, you might as well celebrate your new house.
Another romantic place is something that is new. Instead of chasing the latest restaurant opening and queuing for an hour (which totally kills all romance), you might as well celebrate your new house.Clubvivre Private Chef Tim Meijers told us about a private chef experience for a dinner at an empty house. A couple had bought a new house and celebrated it by having their very first lunch there. “The house was still empty with white walls and no furniture expect a small and two chairs for the couple to lunch at” – the ultimate romantic house warming.
Surely not everybody has a yacht for private use in the back garden, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have dinner on one. Singapore’s marinas are the perfect location when it comes to dinner amidst luxury (even if you can’t afford it). Clubvivre Private Chef Mateo Pertoldi has still vivid memories of a romantic evening a gentleman had organised for his wife. “Living close by the marina, the couple said they could see these beautiful boats every day from their window wondering what it would be like to dine on one” chef Matteo Pertoldi recalls. “One day he just did it.”

Surprise parties never get old. The same holds for a romantic dinner at home. Clubvivre Private Chef Tim Meijers has cooked a private dinner for quite many couples – “be it a birthday surprise dinner, a food-wine pairing or just someone’s favourite meal prepared with excellence in three or four courses, the intimacy of one’s own home still is truly special”. Candles, flowers and good food can move mountains when it comes to romance and love. Some things never get old.
