After sitting indoors all day from Mondays to Fridays, it is sometimes a good idea to sit outside and enjoy some warmth with an ice-cold drink in hand on the weekends when you get a chance to. Here are our 5 favourite alfresco dining spots when we feel like taking it slow and watching the world go by!
1. Brotzeit® German Bier Bar & Restaurant
Started in 2006, Brotzeit® German Bier Bar & Restaurant is the go-to place for authentic German food and beer. Go for the classic Schweinshaxe (oven roasted pork knuckle) and wash it down with a mug of Original Münchner Lager – guaranteed satisfaction! Enjoy the comfort of dining outdoors without experiencing the heat directly under the sun. What’s more, there are live music performances at Westgate’s Courtyard every Friday and Saturday (6:45 to 7:30pm and 7:45 to 8:30pm), so you’ll be able to relax, dine and soak in the atmosphere if you’re sitting outdoors at Brotzeit® German Bier Bar & Restaurant on the weekends!
Address: Westgate, 3 Gateway Drive, #01-04, Singapore 608532 (Brotzeit® German Bier Bar & Restaurant)
2. Da Paolo Bistro Bar At Rochester Park
Alfresco dining at Da Paolo Bistro Bar at Rochester Park is complemented with a picturesque location and chill environment, making it the perfect place for a Sunday brunch. Their modern European food menu is extensive with dishes such as Wagyu Beef Tartare and Chicken Thigh Roulade. You will also be spoilt for choice with their wines and cocktails like Melonica and Rum Rose, what’s not to love? Sit back and relax with a glass of wine in hand while enjoying the company of your date or friends.

3. Picotin Express
Yes, we love our lazy weekends! Picotin Express is located off the beaten track at Champions Golf Course, and is definitely worth the travel! Easily the perfect place for some tea and cake – imagine White Ginger Pear Tea and Sticky Date Pudding with Toffee Sauce and Vanilla Ice Cream – in an outdoor setting, Picotin Express is the place to go to for a weekly catch-up with friends and family.
Address: Champions Golf Course, 60 Fairways Drive, Singapore 286966 (Picotin Express)
Spizzico is an Italian restaurant that features dishes made of high quality ingredients. You can try the Pan Salmone Fritto (pan seared salmon) or get yourself some pasta like the Spaghetti del Pescatore al Nero di Sepia (Spaghetti tossed with prawn, clam, squid, half shell mussel and squid ink). The outdoor area is cosy and what sets Spizzico apart is the streaming of live soccer matches that draws regular customers back. Check out their Facebook page
to be updated on the matches they are screening! If you’re looking to chill, grab a friend, head to Spizzico and catch a live soccer match with some Italian finger food.
Address: Westgate, 3 Gateway Drive, #01-03, Singapore 608532 (Spizzico)
5. Tin Hill Social
Tin Hill Social is just like its namesake, for its interior is designed to include a social space where people can gather and interact. Both its indoor and outdoor areas are perfect for winding down after a long week, or just chilling with a drink (or two)! Can we also add that the food here is delicious? Be sure to try their Roast Butternut Pumpkin and Apple Wood & Hay Smoked Pork Belly Sangar!
Address: Tin Hill Social, 100 Turf Club Road, Singapore 287992
