Step into Dolce Vita, Mandarin Oriental, Singapore’s signature restaurant, and be whisked away to the idyllic shores of the Italian Riviera. Understated yet hip, Dolce Vita oozes contemporary charm and offers a refreshing palette of Italian flavours.
Its location next to the hotel’s newly refurbished outdoor pool lends the restaurant a casual, convivial atmosphere. Guests can choose to eat al-fresco at the patio by the pool, with tantalising glimpse of the Singapore skyline in the distance. By night, the subtle lighting of the pool and patio enhance the mood. The cool, clean design of the interior is ideal for those who prefer to dine in air-conditioned comfort. Large floor-to-ceiling glass panels enable diners to enjoy the view, and create a sun-kissed and light ambience. The red walls, stone-flagged floor and comfortable wooden dining chairs add to the relaxed, resort feel, which is echoed by a couple of simple canvas panels in vivid Mediterranean colours: One in cool azure, aqua tones; the other like the blaze of a summer sunset.
The focal point of Dolce Vita is the large open kitchen, where diners can enjoy the spectacle of the chefs at work. It appeals by being simple, wholesome, and down-to-earth. There is an unwavering commitment to use only the freshest ingredients of the best quality; and luxurious produce are flown in from various parts of Italy. For wine connoisseurs, there is also a wine chiller featuring over a hundred labels of fine wine to complement your meals.
