Just a few days into our travelling adventure marked our third anniversary and we wanted to celebrate in style whilst in Singapore. Marina Bay Sands hotel seemed like the perfect destination for it all to begin.

Situated amongst Singapore’s spectacular skyline, the LAVO restaurant can be found on the 57th floor of the hotel, with breathtaking 180 degree views over both the city and impressive coastline. We arrived fairly early in the evening and opted for a outdoor table which had an amazing view towards Sentosa Island and Marina South Pier. Having been blown away by the building at ground level, looking down on the city from the above really gives you a sense of its enormity – not one for those who are afraid of heights! After being seated, we were brought our drinks along with complimentary olives, bread and chilli oil. 

The restaurant offers a range of Italian-American inspired dishes, ranging from pizzas and salads to grilled steaks and seafood. There is also a selection of mouth-watering appetisers to enjoy with a few drinks whilst soaking up the views. We opted for the Italian duo of rigatoni melanzana (roasted aubergine and mozzarella pasta) and the carne pizza, which was topped with Italian cured meats and a hint of spice. Both dishes were well presented and extremely tasty.

The price range was mid to high, which is understandable for its impressive location and surroundings. We would certainly recommend visiting LAVO restaurant for a special occasion, especially if you are lucky enough to catch a magical sunset like we did!
