We’ve all been through that “fight” – arguing with your significant other on the best place to eat out is a norm for most people 😞 There are so many places to eat in Singapore that finding the perfect place for a date can be a difficult task. (Yes, we know, women can be quite indecisive sometimes 😜)

But fret not, save all the hassle of googling where to eat – we’ve curated a list of 11 romantic halal eateries you can take your partner to!

1. Royz Et Vous

What better way to celebrate the milestones of your relationship than with an excellent spread of steak, pasta and irresistible drinks? Known for their fine dining, Royz Et Vous never fails to impress us with their delicious food 😋 Not to mention that the restaurant’s cosy and dim interior also makes it a suitable place for you and your other half to share a moment.

If there are 2 dishes you have to try here, it has to be their Beef Short Ribs and Smoked Duck. Did you know that their ribs are braised for 9 hours before they’re marinated and rubbed with a secret in-house recipe? This is one dish that’ll definitely melt in your mouth.

Wash down your meal with their selection of unique mocktails that’ll surprise your taste buds. Try their Chichee Bomb – an interesting mix of lychee with strawberry extract with a hint of spicy cinnamon 😱 Royz Et Vous is also one of the few restaurants in Singapore serving non-alcoholic wines and champagnes, so those of you who are more adventurous can try them.
