Fine dining at the Singapore Flyer

I was invited to experience fine dining on board the Singapore Flyer. Yes, dinner on board the world largest giant observation wheel. In one of the spacious capsule that goes up to 165m or 42 storey high.
This is a new package introduced by the Singapore Flyer recently. And its not just any ordinary dining experience. It’s a full-butler 3 course dining in the skies. The butler will be with you throughout the entire dining experience to attend to all your needs. I must say that the service is really first class and comparable to high class restaurant. Each capsule only accommodates a maximum of 5 couples, allowing enough privacy for each couple to enjoy a romantic dinner with a breathtaking view of the city skyline.
The food is pretty good too. You get to choose between Chilean Sea Bass topped with XO sauce, Roasted Duck Confit, Braised Beef Cheek etc etc for your main course. Arrangement can be made for guest with special dietary requirements. The menu is changed monthly, so it would be good for you to check the menu for the month on their website.
The dining experience start at the Singapore Flyer VIP lounge where you wait for your “flight”. You get 2 rotation on board the Singapore Flyer. Appetizer is served during the first rotation while the cook is busy preparing your main course at ground level. We had the Norwegian Salmon for appetizer. The sauces for the Salmon is pretty good and the Salmon is very fresh. Main course is served during the second rotation. As we are approaching the ground level, we can see the cook near the boarding area, adding some finishing touches to our main course. It’s pretty interesting to see the staff serve us within the short time span when the capsule is at ground level. I must say that they are fast and very organized. I bet they did quite a fair bit of training to achieve this.
I had the Pan Seared fillet of Chilean Sea Bass topped with X.O. sauce. One thing to note is that the dish is still warm when served. They must have monitored the timing of the capsule. By the time we finish the main course, our capsule is almost at the top of the Singapore Flyer. Perfect timing to enjoy the beautiful Singapore skyline and have some after dinner chat. That is followed by dessert and coffee/tea at the VIP lounge. A perfect way to end the day.
The sky dining package starts from an introductory rate of S$199++ per couple. (Usual price is S$299) Few things to take note, you’ll need to book one day in advance. It will be good to visit the restroom before boarding the capsule since there isn’t any restroom on board.
I think it is a perfect place for special occasion like anniversary and Valentines day. The ambiance is great. Service is wonderful. And if you want the ultimate privacy and romantic experience, you can book the entire capsule for S$1500 nett which comes with an upgraded menu, a bottle of champagne, a hand bouquet and a box of chocolates.
Many thanks to Sabrina and Vanessa from Asia PR Werkz for the invite.
