Lantern can be found on the rooftop of the Fullerton Bay hotel. This roof terrace is rather impressive, with beautiful unrestricted views over the Marina Bay waterfront and Singapore’s skyline, which is a wonderful sight as the sun sets. The bar and dining area itself is framed by the hotel’s infinity pool; were we not there for dinner, would have been rather tempting.

When we arrived we were greeted and shown to our table by a friendly member of staff. The atmosphere was buzzy and just the right amount of noise, making us excited for what was to come from our evening.

We began our experience with a couple of cocktails from the bar’s cocktail menu. I opted for their London Mandarin cocktail, which saw a mix of gin, orange zest, lime zest, agave nectar and natural artisan water. This fruity combination was very refreshing and offered a great pick-me-up to start the evening.

“The food was faultless and the service was prompt, but it was really the views that stole our hearts.”

My partner opted to try the Silk Route, which saw gin with cardamom, gentian root, lemongrass, cinnamon orange fruit, agave nectar and natural artisan water. This cocktail was rather aromatic and extremely palatable, with the flavours offering the perfect balance of sweet and bitter.

For our first course, I chose the heirloom tomato, avocado, California orange and fresh herbs, served on tomato vinaigrette. The flavours of this dish were exquisitely fresh and the arrangement was wonderful. My partner chose the jumbo lump crab and lobster cocktail with avocado, served on fresh crisp lettuce. Again, this dish was wonderfully fresh and offered strong indications that not only do the Chefs at Lantern know what they were doing, but that they must only use freshest of ingredients.

For our main courses, we both opted for the sirloin steak, which was served with creamy truffle mashed potato and a garden salad. This dish was perfectly executed, and the steak was a fine cut of meat. We both thoroughly enjoyed our main courses.

We can absolutely recommend Lantern as a great bar and restaurant and would urge you to visit when you’re next in Singapore. The food was faultless and the service was prompt, but it was really the views that stole our hearts.
