An indoor water feature softens overall effect of the imposing soaring columns, and the dim lighting allows for clandestine meet-ups to go unnoticed

Tatler Says

From its moodily lit entrance to the quiet dining hall, the restaurant sets the tone for an intimate dining experience. Perfect for private trysts and celebrations, Cantaloupe’s wide space and clever table positioning creates a sense of space and privacy. The current five-course seasonal menu strikes a balance between the contemporary and the classic. There are hits like Poached Lobster, Lobster Aspic and Caviar on potato blini and a sharp Gorgonzola Ravioli grounded by roasted beetroot, onion ceviche, and candied hazelnuts drizzled with olive oil with a honey emulsion. Hearty, classic proteins are featured in dishes such as tea-smoked salmon in a sorrel lemon butter sauce and seared beef pavé served with oyster sauce, deep-fried oyster mushrooms and candied starfruit. For dessert, locally grown Chitose strawberries served two ways – as is and as an ice cream – take the spotlight. For that easy date night win, Cantaloupe fits the bill.

ON THE PASS

Executive chef Christian Bauer's dishes are fit for royalty. And we mean that literally: Bauer has hosted seven episodes of Cooking for the Crown, a television programme that saw him cooking for several Asian royal families. 

TATLER TIP

While the restaurant boasts a respectable collection of Old World wines, you can also order a variety of well-made classic cocktails to go with your meal.
