Aqua Gastronomy

What is it?

It is a unique dining experience at the Ocean Restaurant in the SEA Aquarium on Sentosa. Experience is the right word too – it is multi sensory dining with tasty culinary artistry combined with a beautifully decorated room with the aquarium open ocean habitat in front of you. It is visually stunning.

There are 8 ‘sea bubble’ pods seating up to a maximum of 5 guests (the maximum currently allowed by the government during Phase 2 of the Circuit Breaker). There are also some decorated tables at the back for parties of less than 5 people. We took a table as there were just 3 of us. It doesn’t matter where you dine as the view is the same and diners can leave their seats (masked up) to view the Open Ocean Habitat up close; which is worth doing when the divers are feeding the rays for example.

Each dish was introduced by the ‘Lady of the Ocean’ in a soothing light voice explaining the dishes. The ambient lighting changed for each dish / course served. The tastes and textures of each dish were a sensation too. Four small courses were served and it was a filling (but not overly so) meal.

I would highly recommend trying this unique dining experience – we thoroughly enjoyed it.
