Another of the most expensive restaurants in Singapore is Joël Robuchon Restaurant, the first and only 3 Michelin Starred Restaurant, where expectations are high. Known for its French haute cuisine and over a 1000 premium wines, simple flavours are brought to life on a plate and have been described as ‘pure magic’. The warm and comfortable ambience perfectly complements the food, and even has an indoor winter garden for private functions. We’d love to say more, but at the Joël Robuchon Restaurant words simply fall short.

3. CUT

Specialising in top grade beef, CUT is a steak lover’s paradise. The best quality meat from USA, Australia and Japan are available for you to choose from – the selection even includes the famous A5 Kobe beef flown all the way from Hyogo Prefecture! The steaks are made complete with fresh produce imported from southern California, you truly receive the best the world has to offer.

4. Shinji

Japan is known worldwide for its gastronomic excellence and lucky for us, Shinji has brought the luxurious experience to Singapore. The interior design creates an atmosphere that fits seamlessly with the menu, supporting Chef Kanesaka‘s belief that enjoying top quality sushi is a holistic experience. Be amazed at the impeccable quality of Shinji Kanesaka’s rice, an ingredient that makes up 80% of its sushi.

Price: Omakase SHIN at S$450 per person

5. Burnt Ends

As the name suggests, you can expect most of the food to be cooked over open flames in a haute cuisine meets southern barbecue menu. As there is a no reservation policy at Burnt Ends (except for the counter seats from 6pm and 6:30pm) you may need to wait a while for the succulent, crispy, hearty Australian classics with a twist. The meat is slow cooked over a custom-made triple elevation grill designed by chef David Pynt’s creative mind.

Price: Menu changes daily with an average of $150 for two

6. Jaan

If you enjoy classy dining with a view, then JAAN should be your top pick. Sitting atop the Swissotel, this Michelin star fine dining establishment serves authentic French cuisine. The isolated setting peering out over the Marina is romantic and elegant, with a large chandelier to keep you company. British chef Kirk Westaway showcases his skills with the freshest seasonal meals, so expect the menu to change with the seasons, well, seasons outside of Singapore. Choose from a standard menu, a vegetarian option or the Krug pairing.

Prices range significantly depending on the time of day and day of the week, but range from $98++ (4 course weekday lunch) to $298++ (10 course menu, Mon-Sat)

7. Odette

Right from the start Odette was a top contender amassing two Michelin stars basically from inception. Everything about the restaurant is 100% French, from the menu, to the ingredients, to the chef himself, Julien Roye.

The menu at the Michelin Star restaurant is creative and slightly eccentric, so you will definitely have a happy surprise when your plate arrives. With dishes like Jamon Bocadillo Risotto, where the only description of the meal is #wearenotjoking, you can really feel the playful nature of chef Ryan Clift. There is also an inspired vegetarian menu available.

Price: Lunch goes for $46++ (2 courses) and $60++ (3 courses)

9. Imperial Treasure Super Peking Duck

While most of the restaurants on this list are from European origins, we can’t forget the Asian influences in fine dining. Imperial Treasure Super Peking Duck serves each of their dishes cooked to absolute perfection in the style of the Emperor’s Imperial kitchen.
