Filed in best romantic restaurants | November 11, 2020
Built between 1927 and 1933, The Clifford Pier played an important part in Singapore’s trade and economic growth. It ceased operations in 2006, allowing it to be converted to one of the country’s most romantic restaurants today.
The Clifford Pier at The Fullerton Bay Hotel kept both the original structure and the name of the pier, giving it a notable old-world charm. They also kept the traditional concept of a vibrant hawker center at night so that diners can enjoy classic Singaporean favorites while admiring the gorgeous marina view.
