He’s the one who has been showering you with love and gifts all your life. This Father’s Day, why don’t you turn the tables and be the one to surprise him instead? We pick a few dining spots Dad will surely love.
It might be too late to plan for a surprise gourmet trip to Spain, but you can always bring him to Una at One Rochester for an authentic Spanish fiesta. The chef takes you on a journey from North to South with specialities like the paella de chorizo y habitas, a hearty fare studded with chorizo, fava beans, saffron and finished with aioli sauce; and queso fresco calabaza y membrillo, a creamy cheese mousse with roasted pumpkin ice cream, jelly and caramelised walnuts. The restaurant has a vast collection of wines, beers and spirits, so no worries about the getting a good drink here.

If meat (and lots of it!) is the way to your father’s heart, we suggest The Carvery for a mighty meaty feast. Lipsmacking roasts await at the different live stations—from the 30-day dry aged US Angus prime rib, dry aged in-house to achieve a robust flavour, to honey lemon chicken and hickory pulled pork bun, cooked over wood-fired Argentinian grill. Best enjoyed with an ice cold beer—free just for dad!
A different dining experience calls for a trip to Botanico, located in a 1920s art deco building within the lush Singapore Botanic Gardens. The chef fires up his charcoal grill to curate a meat-centric buffet spread, with dishes like lamb bone T-steak, crispy pork belly and wagyu rump. Don’t just focus there; there are loads to explore from the live station that highlight the whole grilled seabass, to the dessert spread with chocolate cake, lychee financier and honey lemon rosemary tart. Unlimited Heineken beer included.
Sometimes, all dad needs is a hot bowl of double boiled soup or a variety of dim sum. Here’s where you can bring him: Silk Road. The team offers seven- and eight-course menus of their all-time favourites. Of course, he can tuck into the crisp, glistening traditional roasted Beijing duck with moist meat; for something spicy, the steamed halibut fillet in spicy black bean sauce will do the trick.
What we like about Monti’s Father’s Day feast is that it’s designed for the family. Dads can tuck into a glorious buffet spread; there’s a hot carving station loaded with (no surprises here) meats such as Bistecca alla fiorentina and leg of lamb. Top it off with freeflow beer and dad will thank you later. The team has also prepared movie screenings and goodie bags for kids, so everyone will not go home empty handed.
Barnacles by the Sea
Picture this: a majestic view of the sea, the breeze on your face while tucking into a sumptuous feast. You don’t have to travel far and wide when you can just head to Barnacles by the Sea in Sentosa. The chefs make sure it’s worth the trip starting with the fresh seafood—Fine de Claire oysters, king crab and lobsters galore! Don’t forget the meats and grills, cheese selection, and of course, the mouthwatering wagyu burger.
What about a healthy and delicious meal for daddy dearest come Father’s Day? Tangerine’s five-course menu not only includes appetising salads to get you started, it also has seared salmon, free range chicken roulade with all the trimmings as well as the coconut panna cotta. The peaceful interiors surrounded by greenery is also a boon.
Looking for more brunch options? How about Sessions at Resorts World Sentosa, where the highlights are seafood, popular local favourites and Louisiana grilled meats. Warm up your stomach with the black mussels and Alaskan king crab before digging into heavier mains such as the sea salt beef ribeye, German pork knuckles and Cantonese style roasted duck. Don’t forget to save space for desserts!
One Ninety Restaurant
Just for dad, Four Seasons Hotel extends its Sunday brunch hours to let him enjoy all his favourites. Let’s start from the ice station where he’ll be spoiled with fresh seafood such as Maine lobster and Alaskan king crab. Follow it up with the succulent grills—we bet he’ll go gaga on the lamb chops—cold cuts, caviar and the 25 types of cheeses available. Enjoy this with freeflow prosecco or champagne.
The key to dad’s heart is through his stomach. Make sure he only eats the best meat by taking him to Fat Cow for Father’s Day. He’s in good hands as the chefs have crafted a five course menu, the highlight being its succulent Japanese steaks. Of course, there’s something extra for him—a complimentary glass of Nanbu Bijin Tokubetsu Junmai Sake. Available now until June 18.
