Quayside Fish Bar & Bistro @ Quayside Isle


After considering for many years, I have finally decided to apply for the Sentosa Islander Card for unlimited free access into Sentosa as they are more and more restaurants and attractions in the southern island of Singapore. And there is even more reasons for me to maximize my free access to Sentosa with Quayside Isle attracting several restaurants opening at the beautiful Sentosa Cove. Making my way to the latest happening place in Sentosa, I am surprised that the place is quite crowded as it is not very accessible. After strolling up and down the quayside isle checking out the different food establishments, I ended up at Quayside Fish Bar & Bistro.

Coconut Buttermilk Battered Oysters 3/5

Dinner at Quayside Fish Bar & Bistro started with half a dozen of the Coconut Buttermilk Battered Oysters ($14). Lightly battered and deep fried to a nice crispy exterior, the oyster did have a hint of the coconut flavour but I felt it was a tad dry spoiling the juiciness of the oyster.

Baked Barramundi 3/5

I had the Baked Barramundi ($29) which comes with brown buttered carrot puree, Australian leek fondue and iberico chorizo flakes. The barramundi was moist and beautifully cooked. Presentation itself already whetted up the appetite with its colourful plating of green and orange. Unfortunately I was not a fan of the carrot puree, the plate need a more tangy sauce to bring the dish together.

Snapper Pie 3.5/5

My partner had the Snapper Pie ($26) which is served with truffle shoestring fries. Breaking into the pastry and scooping into the roux of butter and flour cooked in milk, each spoonful of the snapper pie was hearty and welcoming.

I like the ambience at Quayside Fish Bar & Bistro which is casual and relax with a great view of the marina. Patrons can even select from the fresh catch of the day and decide how they want it to be cooked. However based on what I tried, I felt that the price was a bit too expensive for the quality of the food I had.

  1. the sentosa islander card is only $25 yet you considered for many years? i think it's awesome value- discounts at several places all over the island, unlimited access for you plus your entire car's occupants if you drive .. list goes on.

    1. Yes I did cos Sentosa bad then does not have many to offer but now is different. I am glad I got the islander card now.

  2. The blogger is right. Sentosa is more interesting now. It's only right to consider if the card is worth it.
