If you're willing to join the queue, use these credit card promotions to indulge in Michelin starred restaurants in Singapore for less.

Updated 3 Jul 2017. This list will be regularly updated to reflect the latest credit card promotions and Michelin-starred restaurants.

The second edition of the Singapore Michelin Guide has 11 new restaurants into the rarefied club of eateries with the highest taste and standard. Earning 1 coveted star each, these restaurants further cement Singapore's reputation as a foodie's haven.

With the new entrants, there is now a total of 38 Michelin-starred restaurants on our tiny island. Add to that the 38 Bib Gourmand awards given out this year (which indicate great food at under S$45 dollars), and food-loving Singaporeans will have no shortage of options finding their next new favourite restaurant.

What is the Singapore Michelin Guide?

The Singapore Michelin Guide gives restaurants up to 3 stars to distinguish those that serve exceptional food. Most places get 0 stars, so gaining Michelin star status is quite an achievement. Table setting, decor, or service quality doesn’t matter; the inspectors only care about how great the food is.

In general, the star ratings mean:

  • One star - A very good restaurant in its category, offering food at a consistently high standard. Drop by if it’s in your neighbourhood.
  • Two stars - A restaurant with excellent cuisine and skillfully prepared dishes of outstanding quality. Definitely worth a detour.
  • Three stars - One of the best restaurants in the world. Book a flight just to savour its distinctive signature dishes.

Not all Michelin restaurants charge fine dining prices, and those that do are said to be worth it. But we at believe that you don’t need to pay full price on anything, even Michelin starred food.

So if you’re willing to queue up at these award-winning restaurants, here are the credit card promotions you can use to score a discounted meal:
