I stayed in MO Singapore and what better way to enjoy the nice pool view by dining at the pool side? The food just worth the price and the service are exemplary. The lamb chop is just gorgeous and the soup was just beautiful. My father and I had a great time having dinner there and will definitely come back... More

The service, while very polite, was extremely slow and the food was almost universally terrible. Several dishes had a bitter after taste suggestive of having been frozen and the serving sizes were comically small, even for fine dining with an astronomical pricetag. Avoid at all costs, there are thousands of restaurants in Singapore, don't waste your time here.

Located next to the pool at the marina mandarin hotel this restaurant is decent but not something that I think is one of the better Italian places to eat in Singapore.

We had a great saty at the Dolce Vita at Manderin Oriental. We were greeted by nice staff and they accommodated us to a change of seats away from the evening sun. The food was excellent and we enjoyed the white wine and desserts. Finishing the evening at the lounge area with a nightcap. Definitely recommend this place for couples... More

It was my first time at Dolce Vita and I wasn't sure what to expect. The tasting menu looked good but my friend and I decided to go for a la carte. What caught our attention was the fact that the pasta was available as tasting portion or main depending on our appetites. We got the burrata and Parma ham... More

Went there for dinner in July and really enjoyed it. The service was very attentive and personal. When we told the wait staff that we would like to share the soup, she arranged with the kitchen to serve the soup in two different bowls. We did not even have to ask.

Very attentive service and a excellent setting....i would recommend the entrance side that overlooks the bay rather than the pool side as people are swimming directly in front of you. The usual excellent MO service and very good food makes this a great choice for a business dinner.

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.
