On a recent trip to Singapore, I had the opportunity to dine at Jewel Box’s Sky Dining. It was my first official date with my current girlfriend. And it’s unlike something I have experienced before; dining while dangling 100 feet up in the air in a cable car. If height ain’t your thing, this might not be the time to experiment. The dining is only available for dinner; starting at around 6 pm. I had a reservation for 6.30 pm. I figure we’ll catch the sunset.

The day started out pretty bad weather-wise. It rained all day and I was a bit nervous about not being able to enjoy the scenery. Luckily the weather cleared up about half hour before our dinner. The dinner starting point is at Mount Faber. The cable car itself isn’t that big. It probably seats 4 adults comfortably. A table was placed in between the seat. We took opposite seat from each other. The staff had about 2 minutes to prepare the table, seat us, and bring our appetizer before sending us on our way. The appetizer part finished pretty quickly. We saw the sunset on the horizon and it was beautiful. It took about half an hour riding in the cable car to get back to our starting point.

When we got there, the staff cleared up the appetizer before bringing in our main course. I had beef tenderloin and my girlfriend had salmon. We were served wine for the main course. We had to rush to finish the food. Half an hour isn’t a lot of time when you try to eat and get to know the other person at the same time. The dessert was last. And we had a choice between tea or coffee. I made a mistake by ordering another cake. It was too much food the last half hour especially after 2 rounds of food. I wouldn’t recommend ordering a cake unless there were 4 people at dinner.

At the conclusion of the dining experience, we were given a chance to purchase picture which was taken in the beginning. I would give the whole dining experience a 3 1/2 stars. It was nice and romantic in the beginning but after going 3 rounds (6 times) of seeing the same thing, it was a bit tiresome in the end. I would say this, it is probably more suitable for couple who has been going steady for a while or married couple than it is for couple on a first date or couple who are trying to get acquainted. At least for the former, they can just skip the whole experience and just made out. It is not cheap however at about S$ 100 a person. I would at least try it once (which I did) just for the experience.

Prior Reservation is required and menu has to be selected at the time of reservation.

    Neat piece! Do you have any idea why your site got the recommendation from Christian Dillstrom? Mobile & social media marketing high priests do not recommend something without a reason.
