Sometimes, instead of hitting the newest restaurant, it’s refreshing to visit a trustworthy establishment that has been consistently serving up excellently prepared meals for years. This is where Garibaldi comes in. A local Italian fine dining institution, Garibaldi’s authentic cuisine and impeccable service has ensured that customers old and new continue to flock into its well-lacquered halls. The three-course set lunch menu, in particular, has achieved cult status among those in the know, thanks to its small but well curated menu. The restaurant’s location – surrounded by national and historical monuments – means you can even squeeze in some sightseeing after lunch.
The City Hall area is where culture, entertainment, business and shopping meet. Set in the heart of the Civic District, it teems with national and cultural institutions noted for their architecture and heritage. Spend a leisurely day museum hopping (from the nation’s oldest, the National Museum of Singapore, to the newest, National Gallery Singapore, which opens late 2015); and gazing at gazetted monuments such as Chijmes and Saint Andrew’s Cathedral.
