Raffles Marina

Raffles Marina Bistro, a place that filled me with more and more memories. It is located in Raffles Marina Country Club in Tuas West Drive, just a stone throw away from Tuas Checkpoint. They serves a good spread of food, namely Indian, Western, Local and dessert cuisine.

Menu
Enjoy the therapeutic marina view of yatch berthing alongside with wooden plank walks with the sunset. Such view in Singapore is rare, the alfresco dining and fantastic view of the harbour and sea especially.


Towards to right, we got a good view long highways bridging Tuas Check Point (2nd Link) and  Johor Bahru.

Look at these tables, there were prepared for use of buffets. In fact, Raffles Marina is also quite popular with their Indian Buffet offered during lunch time. Well, their Briyani is one of the best I had tried so far. Do also take note that the buffet is not a daily thing.


Signature Mocktail, a great summer blend using the freshest coconut. Its unique flavor makes it refreshing on its own or paired with a great meal. With the backdrop of the sunset, it had made this summer drink perfect for that moment.

Marina Breeze - $7 each
An add-on of $1 to the Grilled Halibut fish allowed us to enjoy a serving of soup of the day and ice cream as the dessert. We was presented with Minestrone soup as soup of the day with a wedge from the baguette spreaded by garlic cream, toasted. The soup was full of ingredients and perfect munch with the crispy toast dipped in.

If you think that Ikea Chicken Wings are good, I bet that these are definitely better. These golden crispy brown wings were flavourful, intensively marinated with a good taste deep down to its meat. They were served in a basket on dolly paper with a little parsley stalk by the side.

Chicken Wings (3pcs) - $7.50

Fish and Chips lover, this is your take! Price may seems a little bit steep perhaps but the portion had explained its worthiness. 3 Long fillets given with a bed of fries and its salad by the side. Spread the Tartar sauce on the golden fillet to enjoy the delicious spread of the western cuisine.
Fish & Chips $14
Woot! Look at the scrumptious golden brown dish in front of your eyes.


The Grilled Halibut was fresh and was delicately done with vegetables (Carrots, potatoes, cucumbers etc) that was creatively cut. The fish was cooked to softness accompanied by portions of pasta sauce, an appetizing dish of the night.

The classy outlook of a scoop of ice cream over the dolly paper and the ice cold glass. This Almond Pistachio Ice Cream by Movenpick was topped with a slice of strawberry was my perfect ending on my dinner.

The skylines were mesmerizing during the blue hours. This is a perfect spot to romance your date and enjoy your meal with sea breeze blowing towards your cheek at intervals.

There was a Surcharge of 15% and tax 7%. The verdict is enjoyable food with waterfront dining at affordable price. Moreover Raffles Marina Bistro is opened to the public and offers the executives from nearby industrial area an hour long lunch escape from the weariness of work. The only letdown was that its service was a little bit lacking.

All in all, I think it's highly recommended place to bring your guests and your date here.
