There’s a new reason to head to Keppel Marina, and it’s not just for family-friendly Prive. Its new sister restaurant, Bayswater Kitchen, is visually stunning – its nautical-inspired decor is relaxed yet reﬁned, as is the cuisine, which is seafood-focused.
Hearty eaters should try the Fisherman’s Feast ($38 per person for at least two people), a smorgasborg of lobster, prawns, mussels, ﬁsh and other seafood in season, cooked with seafood stock & tomato and served with handrolled linguine. The lamb cutlets ($38) and ﬁsh & chips ($19) are must-tries, too. We like that the foosball and ping pong tables keep little hands well away from their tablets. 2 Keppel Bay Vista.

If your family loves crabs, you’ll want to try the unusual dishes at hip new restaurant Holycrab , which specialises in the crustacean. Its Green Chilli Crab is a refreshingly welcome variation to the red chilli one that Singaporeans love so much. So is The Peppa, which uses pink peppercorns instead of the usual black ones.
Adventurous eaters should try the Balsamic Crab, which blends balsamic vinegar, red chilli and curry leaves – it’s one of those dishes you either love or never want to eat again. All crab dishes are priced at $9 per 100g (before service charge and GST) and use large Sri Lankan crabs. If you need carbs, its Succumb to Mee (fried clam bee hoon, $15) has a heavenly wok hei.
