3 restaurants to enjoy brunch with a view at Sentosa’s Quayside Isle

The waterfront spot in Sentosa Cove has gotten hipper with its casual food offerings following a revamp earlier this year.


Following the Emmanuel Stroobant Group’s move out of the Sentosa enclave this year, Quayside Isle @ Sentosa Cove has since welcomed newer entrants offering fuss-free dishes to match its relaxed setting by the marina. We pick out three that caught our eye.

01: Big Fat Mama

  • Big Fat Mama's Dishes

Mediterranean bistro Big Fat Mama is no stranger to the regulars of Quayside Isle, whom might remember it as popular gelato shop Note di Sicilia. After closing its doors for six months, the outfit opened in a bigger unit in June, adding hearty European cuisine to its icy offerings. Serving portions to share, Big Fat Mama’s space by the waterfront makes it a great spot for large group gatherings – a place to unwind for casual conversation.

02: Greenwood Fish Market

  • Grilled scallops
    Scallops from Hokkaido, Japan are grilled and served with confit king mushrooms, a crunchy green pea puree and a smooth soya bean puree.

When chef-owner Alan Lee of Greenwood Fish Market was approached to open a second outlet at Quayside Isle, he could not pass up the chance to serve seafood at a prime waterfront spot. A restaurant and market rolled into one, chefs are on hand to cook your pick of the day’s freshest seafood, either grilled, slow-cooked or smoked.

03: Joe & the Juice

  • Juices made from fresh fruits

For lighter fare, Danish-Scandinavian inspired juice bar and cafe Joe and The Juice offers a healthy and quick caffeine or juice fix. The second of three outlets in Singapore, juices here are made fresh on the spot, and the thick smoothies topped with granola double up as a light meal in a pinch. The servers also throw in some bartending acts while concocting drinks for a theatrical finish.
