Museum Restaurants In Singapore

Museum Restaurants That Are Serving Edible Art

Museums aren’t just about looking at pretty pictures anymore. How great would it be to see a creation of stunning colours, and then get to eat it afterwards? Yes, I am talking about food as art.

These museum restaurants located right here in our own pristine galleries have opened up a new way to savour art — on a plate. These are food that will intrigue, impress and immerse you in a sensory experience like no other.

You don’t even have to be a frequent museum-goer to appreciate this exhibition of culinary treats. Prepare yourself for a feast for the eyes, and your tummy!

National Gallery

Opened in November 2015, the former Supreme Court of Singapore now acts as both a national monument and a contemporary art gallery. With the Best Attraction award under its belt, you can most definitely expect exquisite and unique dining experiences from the National Gallery.


Holding the fort for National Gallery’s range of restaurants, fine-dining Cantonese restaurant Yàn lives up to its location. It exemplifies beauty in both its food and interior!

Its interior is adorned with posh art pieces such as this wall decor of swallows that symbolises grace and beauty. Just like its installations, Yan infuses similar elegance into its food with a strong emphasis on dish presentation.

Take a look at these vibrant dim sum trio (Squid Ink, Vegetarian, Chicken & Dried Shrimp) that can be found in Yàn’s 5 Course Set Lunch Special ($38++ per pax, minimum two pax). Considering the polished plates served up, here’s a place that definitely puts in the effort to transform its plates into art.

Expected Damage: $40 – $80 per pax
