Swissotel The Stamford
2 Stamford Rd, 178882
SKAI is a sleek, approachable fine diner, located on the 70th floor of Swissôtel The Stamford. With some of the finest city skyline views in Singapore, excellent service, and a produce-driven grill menu from Executive Chef Paul Hallett, it is a very pleasant location to wile away a few hours over a relaxed lunch with friends.
Meeting up for a celebration, we start with a few glasses of crisp Veuve Clicquot and opt for the well-priced set menu ($42 for two courses, $52 for three). For entrée I select the Cured Salmon with Pomelo, Cucumber, Avocado and Jalapeno. It’s a refreshing, light and tangy start to the meal. Other options include Smoked Duck, Irish Oysters, Courgette Soup and Foie Gras. For main, I can’t go past the Australian Black Angus Steak with Endive Salad and Red Wine Sauce (+$20) and sides of bright Asparagus and crispy Hand Cut Chips. To finish, we share the saucy Caramelised Banana with Coffee Puff and Yogurt Ice Cream and the palette cleansing and not so decadent Exotic Trifle with Coconut, Mango Compote and Lemongrass Sorbet.
Verdict: Impressive service, killer views and a lovely meal make this easy-going restaurant a must visit.
