New food and retail development Quayside Isle to open at Sentosa Cove

Sentosa Cove shopping mall Quayside Isle (next to W Singapore-Sentosa Cove) will open the first of its 20 planned restaurants—serving a range of Mediterranean, Italian, Spanish, Belgian, Japanese, Australian and American fare—from mid December 2012. 

Among the fresh entries is Japanese restaurant Ezoca, a 40-seater which will import most of its food as well as rare collection of sakes and artisanal tableware from Japan. There’s also casual Australian eatery Grillado, offering flat roasted Portuguese grilled chicken and burgers, halal kebab spot Rollers Diner, Italian eatery Solepomodoro Trattoria-Pizzeria and sports bar Cove Stadium.

Spanish food will be well represented with two tapas joints Paradiso Restaurant & Bar (by the folks behind Cuba Libre and Nueva Cuba) and Sabio by the Sea. And the sweet-toothed will want to look out for Italian Gelateria-Bar-Lounge Note di Sicilia.

Familiar brands will also be expanding at Quayside Island including all-day dining café Kith, Belgian bar and bistro Brussels Sprouts-Belgian Beer & Mussels by the Emmanuel Stroobant group and Picotin Express (offering delivery and catering services).

In addition to dining options, there’ll be retail stores including supermarket Jasons, southern French food shop Little Provence, wine store The Straits Wine Company and hair, nail and makeup studio Hera Beauty Salon.

To get to the mall, there’ll be a free shuttle service (within Sentosa). Bus three will take visitors from Beach Station Bus Interchange to the Sentosa Cove Arrival Plaza (nearby Quayside Isle) from 8am to 10:30pm daily (with 30 minute intervals).

An eco-friendly development, the project was awarded the highest rating for green buildings in Singapore, the Building and Construction Authority’s (BCA) Green Mark Platinum.
