All The Best Restaurants To Have Your Christmas Brunches And Dinners At

#1: Monti at 1-Pavilion
Offering unbeatable, unobscured views of our city’s waterfront, Monti at 1-Pavilion is one of the best restaurants to dine at if you’re planning a romantic brunch or dinner date with your loved ones. For the holiday period, the restaurant will be having a six-course Italian spread accompanied by Bellavista prosecco ($180++) on both 24 and 25 December. But if you much prefer having your festive meal at midday, the restaurant has also specially created a brunch menu ($110++) on both days as well.  82 Collyer Quay, tel: 6535 0724 #2: The Summerhouse
Get a breather from the hustle and bustle of the city and relax at Seletar’s best farm to table dining concept. The restaurant will be serving up a hearty spread on both 24 and 25 December, so get ready to indulge in communal-style Christmas dining — available for both brunch ($78++) and dinner ($98++) — and be spoilt for choice with a variety of appetisers and mains (P/S: meat lovers, there’s a premium roast you seriously have to try). Dessert-wise, opt for rum-soaked gingerbread fruit cake, Christmas pudding ice-cream and an assortment of Christmas cookies. 3 Park Lane, tel: 6262 1063 #3: The Garage
This spiffy dining establishment tucked in the leafy surroundings of the Botanic Gardens is the ideal spot if you’re looking to have your meal amidst a relaxing, laidback setting. Similar to The Summerhouse, this cafe-bistro hybrid will be serving up communal dinner ($88++) and brunch ($68++) sets on both Christmas Eve and Christmas itself. What to expect: smoked duck potato hash; ocean-fresh flavours of Spanish mackerel with Iberico chorizo risoni; as well as more meaty accompaniments like grilled pork belly and Sanchoku wagyu rump roast. Sounds good, doesn’t it? 50 Cluny Park Road, tel: 9831 1106 #4: Stellar @ 1-Altitude
Led by executive chef Christopher Millar, indulge in a five-course festive dinner ($130++ and $150++ for window seating) on 24 and 25 December as you take in the breathtaking views of dazzling Christmas lights from 282 metres above the bustling streets.  The restaurant will also have a special brunch menu on Christmas day itself, serving up a lavish spread of coastal-fresh seafood, decadent charcuterie and foie gras and of course, other trusty brunch classics. End off your meal with a dessert extravaganza laid out by group pastry chef Jasmin Chew (who also does the most Instagrammable dessert art), featuring festive sweets such as black forest pavlova wreath and rum soaked fruit cakes. Level 62, One Raffles Place, tel: 6438 0410 #5: Zafferano
Overlooking the panoramic Marina Water Front with unparalleled views of the city, Zafferano is your one-stop destination to bask in the festive ambience. Begin Christmas day with a brunch ($138++) affair featuring classic Italian favourites, which also includes an unlimited pouring of G.H. Mumm champagne. For dinner options, the restaurant has specially curated the Christmas Table d’Hote, which offers a choice of three ($88++) or four ($98++) courses created by head chef Marco Guccio. No festive meal is complete without a delightful array of sweet treats so expect traditional and contemporary Italian desserts and pastries such as house-made tiramisu, Christmas log cake and of course, panettone.
