One of the great things about this little island is that you’re never too far from seaside dining. When you need a dose of sea breeze, head to one of these great alfresco restaurants. This family-friendly guide will have you sorted when the crew needs some beach-side fun and delish food. Feast away! Here is our guide to the best seaside beach restaurants in Singapore.
For beachside views and one of the best places to get your local food fix, East Coast Lagoon Food Village is it! For the Eastside crowd, heading here for dinner with the fam is always a fav. One of the must-tries is the Lagoon Carrot Cake - simple, easy and oh so fragrant. Choose between black (with sweet sauce) or white versions from SG$6 onwards. Seafood is always a must when you're by the beach and Lagoon is synonymous with stalls serving up the freshest plate. Order up a deliciously barbequed Sambal Stingray and pair it with cincalok (fermented shrimp sauce) to top it off. Other local delights to add to your list are BBQ chicken wings, Satay and Fried Oyster Omelette. Yums!
