Great food and definitely worth the visit!

This place is definitely a landmark founded in 1956 and it is located just one step next to iconic Merlion. You can choose to have indoor seats or outdoor seats with Singapore skyline - Marina Bay.
 
 I went there for my lunch with family and friends, the service there is superb good! very attentive staffs and friendly!
 
 Food wise, i have no chance to try out their famous CRAB yet but definitely will re-visit this restaurant for next time! I have ordered seafood platter as appetizer, it is quite costly but worth it! VERY NICE! Also, dont forget to order one of the signature dish - Crispy Crullers! The portion of the dishes are quite big in serving too.
 
 The excellent foods and services made up my day!

Open your eyes, they will cheated on you!

the food is tasty, the view is good. the location is easy to walk. i still bringing my friends here. But service is a nightmare! you really have to handle more than other restaurant!


But they CHEATED ON THE WEIGHT!!!! they told me 2.5 kg for the crab, but they gave us a 1.5 kg size. far from what she told me, the waitress name is Rachel.

2nd time. we booked the seat for 8 people on the day for dinner, it was a guy asked, and when we there, they said there is no reservation been recorded!!

their best crab is Double-baked crab and Black Pepper Crab.
chili crab can not compare with Jumbo or No signborad.

Poor service and mediocre food

Poor service and mediocre food!

Our seafood platter consisting of 5 oysters, 5 prawns, 5 salmon sashimi and a few bamboo clams cost us a whooping $160!!! I understood the platter costs $32/person, but serving such pathetic amount of seafood for $32 was unjustifiable.

Next was the chilli crab. The sauce was too sweet and has no hint of spiciness. The mantous served to us were cold. This was the first time I had such an unenjoyable experience eating chilli crab in Singapore!

The female staff serving us looked like we owed her a living. She obviously missed out our order of fried rice. We had to asked the manager twice in order to get our fried rice served - 1hr after all our food was served.

If you have to order a vegetable dish, do not order the Kailan dual style. The combination of Kailan and seaweed did not go well at all. We barely touched this dish.

The service of the staff was poor and slow. While we were queuing to enter the restaurant, the staffs handling the queue at the entrance were quarreling and this certainly displayed a substandard image of the restaurant.

splendid

Palm Beach Seafood restaurant certainly brings nice and warm memories back to me. Looking back when I first stepped into the restaurant, frankly speaking, the place failed at a glance as compared to Jumbo. Nevertheless as I picked up the menu, I was amazed by the amount of award-winning dishes that they have received.

Their famous Chili Crab - the sauce is a perfect blend of spices that marry so well to the extend that you feel an explosion of flavors in your mouth. With the complement of the fried mantou(s), I could never forget how delicious it was back then.

Beef Skewers - Another award-winning dish. At first, I was quite reluctant to order because this particular dish has a minimum order quantity of 4. However, I still ordered it as their order-taker is an eloquent person. On the first bite, I was totally ready for more indulgence.

Moneybag - It is not an award-winning dish but it's worth a try. The crunchiness of the deep-fried wrapped moneybag will make you crave for more!

Waiting time wise, you can't really pin-point to their level of capability because I understand that orders flood in with no warnings beforehand. I am willing to wait for the good food that I will be tasting because I would like to highlight that you can't possibly demand good quality food if you are going to spare just a good 10 minutes and expect all your dishes to be out. From the other reviews that I have read, I can only voice out that if you guys really want good quality food, you have to wait, or else you can just sway your way to a tze char stall in any particular hawker centre/ kopitiam, I'm pretty sure you will enjoy the short waiting time that you are looking for.

All in all, it was delectable having a meal in the cosy restaurant with attentive waitresses.

Can you handle it?

Disclaimer: I am a friend of some staff at the restaurant, while I am probably not 100% objective, I will try to keep the info as straight forward as possible and won't give you much bullshit. Plus, the frequency at which I eat here probably means that I am much more experienced with the place.

A great Singaporean restaurant with outstanding service and fantastic food. I personally adore the salted egg crab - the most decadent version served in Singapore (from the bunch I have sampled) - though most are more in love with the creamy crab which is itself a unique experience. That, and (weirdly) the Lamb Chop are my absolute favorite (affordable) reasons to dine at Palm Beach.

Ambience is not amazing when seated indoors, it is basically a classier take on the true blue Singaporean seafood restaurant and comes complete with a faux forest to compensate for our island's lack of (natural) vegetation. So with that, comes tip number 1: if the weather looks good, ask for an "outside" table and feast on fish while the Merlion merlions in disgust at your inconsiderate consumption of his kin. Better still, most evenings (I may be mistaken) you'll be treated to a free laser show courtesy of Marina Bay Sands.

Lastly, service at this restaurant has consistently been top notch for me, not overly pesky while always maintaining a good level of attentiveness and contact.
