I would like to sum up my review by only stating that if the food lacked a little taste that was easily covered up with the excellent service and friendliness of the staff. In my case both the food and service was phenomenal. The restaurant manager (Indian guy) and the waitress who served me (a Filipino lady) both were excellent.... More

DV was a long favorite in Singapore and justifiably ranks highly on TripAdvisor plus other review sites.

A fantastic venue for a quiet Sunday brunch amongst friends. The service was excellent and unobtrusive, thanks to Vanessa and Taylor. Their Sunday lunch is well known in Singapore so we went along to try it and we're not disappointed. The lunch was a cross between a true buffet and a la carte. The mushroom soup with truffle foam was... More

After a week in Singapore we were looking for something more close to home. The food was divine (caprese salad, pasta with prawns, delicious bread)... The food was great but the best and most remarkable was the service...from the time we got in the restaurant to the time we left I have really felt a VIP. Definitely a great option... More

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.
