We were attracted by the church then went inside and discovered it's no longer a church, but a place with lots of restaurants, good place for photos.

A friend of mine suggested coming here and we were not disappointed. It's great to walk around and take in the old convent, then select one of the many restaurants that cater for many food tastes. There are also bars and outside eating option. Great fun and great quality all round.

It is one of the heritage places in Singapore commercialized for monetary value. Good to have meals and drinks and can watch footballs matches in crowded bars.

I find it a little odd to turn a historic area into restaurants and bars, but maybe that's just me. Either way, there's lots of options for eating and drinking in a very cool and unique setting. It's worth walking through to see even if you don't ultimately eat here.

Chijmes has a unique atmosphere especially since its right in the middle of Singapore. Its a bit of haven away from he noise of the city given its 1 level below. There are dozens of restaurants here to choose from as well as bars so there is going to be something that you will like.

This historic building complex began life as a convent so the architecture is a nice change from the ultra modern Singapore. Their are numerous restaurants and bars to choose from. Some of the restaurants we have found particularly good are Lei Garden (Chinese Food), Bobby's has excellent burgers and beer an IndoChine offers nice Vietnamese style dishes.
