It's such a hassle to make reservation through phone - Book now through Chope for Instant Reservations!

Visited on 15th March 2014 (Sat). Restaurant week dinner at $55++ per person = Total bill of $129.47 for 2 pax.

The Lighthouse has one of the most mesmerizing views of the city skyline and Marina Bay waterfront from atop The Fullerton Hotel. They serve authentic Southern Italian cuisine with specialties and quality produce from gastronomy rich regions like Campania, Sardinia and Sicily.

This is what you will see at level 8!

A good spot for photo taking first before went up to the lighthouse!

Note: When you reach level 8, you have to take this lift up to The Lighthouse.  If the lift is out of order, you'll have to climb up the stairs at the corner beside the lift. (Which happened to us on that day!) :(

Complimentary bread 

Vegetable Minestrone Soup, Goat Cheese & Scallop
I'm a person who don't take vegetables or minestrone soup. But surprisingly i enjoyed this soup! The soup was tasty, the scallops were fresh and the goat cheese was melt-in-the-mouth!

Octopus & Lobster Carpaccio, Mix Green Salad, Honey Lemon Dressing
This was a fantastic appetizer! The octopus & lobster meat was so refreshing, tasty and very tender! You will love this!

Roasted Seabass Fillet in Cartafarta Bag, 
Cherry Tomatoes, Black Olives, Saffron Potatoes
This was my first time having seabass that need to open the bag which i think was rather special! It's like a kid open the present with surprise!

Having seabass at so many hotel restaurants, this was one of the BEST i've had so far! The seabass was so fresh, so tender and the broth was very very delicious that you really have to try it!!!

Chicken Roll with Fontina Cheese, Gratin Potatoes, Sweet & Sour Chicory
Only this chicken roll was a big disappointment. The meat was quite dry and tough, nothing special about this.

They were very generous with the Tiramisu, it was quite a big glass and tasted very good except it was a tad too creamy!

You can pay a visit to their Rooftop Bar if you're looking for after meal cocktails or champagnes!

Overall Impression: I was surprised that the restaurant was really small and cramped. Service was not pro, in fact it was quite bad (Water was not refilled at all and some of the staff seemed inexperienced) They seemed to provide better service to foreigners from my observation. But the food and view was nice! Nevertheless, it's still a good experience to dine at least once at Lighthouse (On Top of Fullerton Hotel) just to enjoy the food, ambience and stunning view!
