Going to Marina Bay Gardens is a wonderful experience but to have it enhanced by amazing food and wine is very special. The restaurant organise a pick up in a golf buggy at the entrance to the park, plus you get free access to the flower dome which is a bonus. The food was really beautiful with complex layers of...

Entrance to Pollen is half way around the Garden By The Bay Complex. Nice walk if you have time and if it is not too hot. Otherwise, wait for the little trolley. As location is under the big umbrella glass roof, air-conditioning cannot be controlled and it tends to be extremely cold in the restaurant. Although they provide shawls I... More

One of the best lunches I've had - everything was fantastic, from the food, to the service, and it even came with a free pass to the Flower Dome (wow!). The lunch set came with a free serving of some of the best sourdough bread I've had and, ooh, that smoked butter. The butter with that rich smoky flavour with... More

World class dining experience. I'm vegan and they created an entirely set menu to cater for my dietary requirements. The staff were flawless and the food was impeccable.

An attractive venue in the Flower Dome at the Gardens by the Bay with an interesting but very expensive menu (tea and a slice of cake $28!) and the service is very slow. Only recommended if you are desperate.

Went to Pollen in the Flower Dome for my wife's birthday with friends. The place isn't quiet as cosy as I had thought it might be...it's even a little austere and "modern cafe" like. The most obvious thing about the experience however is the temperature.....it's absolutely freezing!!! They even hand out pashminas, so it's obviously a problem...unfortunately they'd handed them...

For the prices at this restaurant, we were extremely disapponted and will never go back. The fish we ordered was not fresh, dry and overall just awful. The sides we ordered never came, the atmosphere was quite sterile and the staff weren't particularly friendly. There are so many other restaurants that I wooos prefer to go to that are half... More

Booking made for 8 without deposit and we must order 8 tea sets which have a lot of food we barely can finish half. I see other table customers can just order drinks, suggest not to make reservation and just walk in. Macaron is my favourite dessert, but Pollen Macaron is way too sweet which I just have one bite...

Staying in Marina Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Marina Bay
More of a mini city than a neighbourhood in the traditional sense, the iconic Marina Bay aims to dazzle and entertain visitors of all kinds. This is the Singapore found in glossy brochures, featuring a world-class hotel, casino, shops, restaurants, bars, and other attractions all geared towards pure entertainment. The SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands provides a stunning view of the city, a must-see photo opportunity for visitors and locals alike. The ArtScience Museum always has a top-quality exhibition, and Gardens by the Bay is a fascinating manifestation of the government’s vision of Singapore as a “city in a garden”. Enticing Marina Bay is well worth a visit.
