 Jason Antherton is one of my favorite chef, who makes fine dining affordale. All his cuisines are nicely presented and taste good. Nothing heavy but makes us feel very delightful. It is free to access to the garden after eating here. Really worth the money!

Amazing and memorable meal

I always make an effort to get to Pollen when I visit Singapore and I'm never disappointed. Tried the tasting menu and loved the delicious and interesting flavours and gorgeous presentation. Check out a full review and photos at http://wanderluxelife.wordpress.com/2014/11/01/pollen-singapore/

Wonderful place for dates

Celebrated my gf birthday with a dinner at the restaurant. The buggy service was pretty helpful to get diners to the restaurant. Pick up point is either MBS T3 or Visitor Centre. Located in Flower dome, the complimentary access in the dome is just another wonderful experience that we had. While waiting for your meal, you can walk around the cooling dome. 
 
 Wine will be served upon sitting at your table.(optional, if you are not wine drinkers, skip it). For starter, we wanted to order Carpaccio of Hokkaido scallops. Wanted it to be seared, but the kitchen recommended another scallops dish that they served during lunch which was cooked. I would say that is simply wonderful. Rich flavours
 
 For main, we ordered both Jasmine tea cured Norwegian salmon and Beef short rib. OMG. Both dishes taste heavenly. Norwegian salmon is cooked just right without being too raw or stiff. You can definitely taste mandarin orange and jasmine green tea being blended together perfectly.
 
 As for the Beef short rib, it will never go wrong if you choose to order that. No need to choose the "doneness" as the beef was stewed and the combination of peppercorns and the beef were marvellous.
 
 Lastly, the downside experience i had is the number of calls i had to make during dinner time in order for me to get through their line. Waiting time for the buggy and calls has to be improved.
 
 Nevertheless, we had an awesome experience with them. I personally like the part that you can walk around the dome while waiting for your food. (You know how long the food is served in a fine dining restaurant right. Hahaha)

Wonderful place for romantic dinner.

Great ambience. Very romantic. Partner brought me here for a special occasion. Service staff were actually informed in advance for to surprise me with a cake. They did wonderfully, according to my partner, no need to remind them. Maitre'd had everything under control.

 Pollen is an experience. Food was technically superb - quality, plating, taste score high on my chart. Atmosphere - out of this world. Crowd - low. Great to spend some one-on-one time. Highly recommend for special occasion. Expensive, unless you are rich, not a place to spend your everyday meals.

One can take an after-dinner walk around the park too. Scenic views of the bay and city.
