Sentosa, known for its beaches and tourist attractions, is a perfect summer getaway destination for both locals and tourists. It’s a resort island off the south of Singapore, that used to be a British military base, but was then later renamed and repurposed as a tourist destination.

Today, it’s jam-packed with activities and attractions to fill a day of fun. But there's just as much there to satisfy a hungry stomach and make one's belly happy. Even if you're not planning an island getaway, there's still a reason to head there for a multitude of dining experiences.

To cater to the countless visitors from all over the world, the island offers delectable treats aplenty – from takeaway snacks to a plethora of local dishes under one roof, and full sit-down meals in a fine atmosphere with beautiful scenery.

Too tired and hungry after spending a day at the beach to do the research? Don’t worry, we’ve done the digging for you. Here’s a list of some of the best eateries and restaurants in Sentosa that should be included in your itinerary.

Affordable food courts and markets in Sentosa (<$30)

Good Old Days Food Court (next to Siloso Beach Sentosa)

If you are right smack in the middle of all the fun Sentosa attractions, Good Old Days Food Court at Beach Station is a multi-level, multi-cuisine food court you should check out.

Located conveniently near Siloso Beach and other iconic Sentosa attractions like Wings of Time and Skyline Luge, this is the go-to for a fuss-free meal after a tiring day in the sun. 

This establishment bears a resemblance to the everyday kopitiam (coffee shop), that can be found in most of Singapore’s residential areas. And the best part? This particular food court boasts a diverse range of fare that is entirely halal.

On the first floor, get your fill of local delights at the Good Old Days Asian Buffet. They offer an unlimited flow of Singaporean favourites such as Laksa with Fish Cake and Egg and fragrant Seafood Fried Rice, and Honey Roasted Chicken. The buffet costs S$25.

Just want a quick and easy meal? Order à la carte Asian dishes on the second floor. Be sure to try the highly recommended aromatic Chicken Briyani and the Singaporean classic Hainanese Chicken Rice Set, served with a side of veggies and a bowl of soup.

International Food Street (Sentosa Central Beach Bazaar)

The highlight of Sentosa’s Central Beach Bazaar is the International Food Street, an eye-catching row of various food stalls found in Kombi vans (like Fillmore, the hippie Volkswagen character from the movie Cars), food trucks and containers. A diverse range of cuisines can be found here for a quick bite while you’re on the move between attractions.

Need something to fill your stomach between your back-to-back Luge rides? Head down to the containers found around the Wings of Time Premium Gate 3. Here, you’ll find Chipper Roll and Slurps & Scoops, where you can grab a bite of Fish and Chips (S$7.80) or a cup of ice cream for S$5.80.

Found side by side in cute Kombi vans are the stalls Masala Wala and Mama Shop, where you can get vegetarian and halal Indian snacks and some nostalgic Singaporean snacks. Three pieces of Punjabi Samosas or a Paneer Kathi Roll are both $7.80 if you need a quick pick-me-up.

Lastly, the food trucks are home to Bentori, Thai Dee and Taco Pau, serving Japanese, Thai and Mexican cuisines. Make sure to try the wraps at Taco Pau for a range of prices depending on the filling, such as Tandoori Chicken (S$7.80) or for something more deluxe, Lamb Rogan and Potato Kofta with Cashew Gravy (S$9.80).

Vintage and cute, be sure to snap an aesthetic shot for your Instagram while you’re here.

There are no specified seating areas for Food Street’s customers, so we advise you to set up a picnic mat at one of the nearby beaches. Or you can spend a minimum of S$5 to be allowed entry to the Wings of Time seating area, where you’ll also have stunning views of the Sentosa SkyJet and the Sentosa Musical Fountain, the latter a new edition of the now-demolished Sentosa Musical Fountain, previously a popular show amongst visitors in the 1980s.

The Sentosa Musical Fountain runs from 11:00am to 1:30 pm and from 3:00pm to 5:00pm. The show happens in 30-minute intervals and each lasts five minutes.

Panamericana (Sentosa Golf Club)

Panamericana is located at the end of a long drive down Bukit Manis Road, nestled in Singapore’s most exclusive golf club, Sentosa Golf Club. Good news for us ordinary folk: you don’t need to be a member to patronise the restaurant.

Panamericana is one of Singapore's clifftop restaurants, overlooking the picturesque Straits of Singapore. While its view is beautiful all times of the day, it is especially known for its breathtaking sunsets.

Diners can choose to sit in the quaint indoor dining area, fitted with floor-to-ceiling windows, dine al fresco on their verandah or unwind with the wind on their face at a lounge area at The Lawn for a memorable experience. Outdoor seats are highly coveted, so the restaurant recommends making reservations two whole months ahead of time to avoid disappointment.

The Argentinian and Latin American bar and grill offers diners a culinary experience through the 50,000km Pan-American Highway – it’s best known for its selection of barbecued meat dishes, which are all cooked over a traditional Asador grill. That alone makes every dollar worth it.

As a starter, try the Argentinian Empanadas (S$16), filled with savoury pulled pork shoulder and ham hock, mozzarella, roasted pineapples and black olive crema.

When it comes to mains, any choice you make is a win. But if you really had to choose, our choice is the Colombian Chicken (S$64 whole/$32 half), grilled and smoked to tender perfection, topped with a chilli glaze and salsa roja picante.

Round up your meal with a sweet treat; highly recommended are their churros (S$15) served with Arequipe, a sweet dipping sauce made with sugar and milk. 

If you’re visiting Panamericana, it is recommended for you to make a reservation in advance so that you could get the seats with some of the best panoramic views, either at the main restaurant seating area or at The Lawn.
