Neighborhood: Marina Bay
Description: The Pelican has long been a symbol that holds great affinity with seafarers who would find their way back to land after a long voyage to celebrate their homecoming. Taking its cue to this philosophy, at The Pelican , we are inspired to recreate these same experiences where diners will feel welcome and at home in the inviting setting to enjoy the warm hospitality and comforting food that await them. Guests can watch the bartenders in action at the seven-metre-long marble-top bar counter as they prepare The Pelican’s signature cocktails. At the outdoor veranda, one can also relax to sexy bar grooves during the sunset DJ sessions and enjoy the views of the Marina Bay district.

Dining with a great view overlooking Marina Bay. Most people were dinning outside on a beautiful evening. but the food may not be worth it. though the presentation is high class butnin terms if taste - lets just say it is mediocre at best. However the service was great and attentive.

This is a restaurant that has a great view. We wandered in by chance and got a table outside. This was a really winner as we had a great view of the fireworks and laser show around 8pm from the Marina Sands and surrounding area. The prices are not cheap and the drinks, especially wine, are high even by Singapore standards. The menu was quite good for a bistro type like this place. The crab cakes were very nice, not cheap and a reasonably small serve; the chowder was excellent even though the serve was a little small. The hamburgers were cooked to perfection with nice sides. We did not really need to order extra fries. The service was good, informative and well-paced. I would recommend this place as the food was reasonable, the setting great and the light show excellent. It cost us $125AUD for three for an entrée and a cheaper main each and a beer and a glass of wine for two.

We had a birthday celebration and a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Can highly recommend the large Pelican platter with a full lobster, oysters etc etc at $ 128++ which is enough for 2-3 people. The DBL Linguini is also very good. The wines by Singapore standard are also reasonably priced f. inst. Cloudy Bay Pinot Noir at $110++ , and the staff did an excellent job.

The restaurant is relatively new and strategically located along the Singapore prime tourist area where the iconic Merlion is only 5 minutes walk away and you could enjoy the sunset along the Singapore River with Marina Bay as the backdrop if you have a pre-dinner cocktail in their outdoor veranda. The menu is California /Long Island/American East Coast seafood style with very good menu for drinks - this is after all A Bar cum Grill. To enjoy a great dinner with a few drinks would cost about S$100 per head - not bad for a prime location in Singapore. There are a few menu item that is great for sharing: The Pelican Platter, The Linguini, The Baked Snapper...even the dessert should be shared if you are watching your BMI

This place is supposed to be known for their seafood dishes, but what I really enjoyed the most was all of the desserts that we ordered! The bread and butter pudding, Pina Colada dessert and the Whoopie die were all sensational!

For the main, I got the fish pie, which is very large - big enough for two people, but I found that the sauce didn't really merry with the fish. I felt like I was eating boiled fish, with some creamy sauce poured over top.

Other than that, something thats great and interesting to order is the cod's tongue with the little fried bit. Delicious!

I would say some of the dishes on the menu are very pricey, but the fish pie becomes quite reasonable if you share.
