My family chanced upon ilLido at the Cliff during our last staycation and discovered this fine dining restaurant which showcase delectable Italian classics made only from the finest seasonal ingredients from Italy and an impressive compilation of good wines. This was previously housed in the Sentosa Golf Club which since then relocated to Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa in a collaboration with the former The Cliff restaurant.
The ilLido at the Cliff has a good seating capacity of up to 196 guest and includes a semi-alfresco dining area where it can sit up to 96 diners. There are also two private rooms that promises more comfort and greater sophistication. One can choose to have a drink at their casual yet elegant outdoor bar area to enjoy a breath taking view of Sofitel’s luxurious pool.
While taking on the fresco dining area, one can readily overlook the glistening South China Sea during the day amidst the lush natural greenery.
With the grandeur indoor dining concept, one can host guests or family over a more intimate dining experience set in a luxurious Italian interior.
Combination of these settings, ilLido does provide a perfect venue for most occasions – be it a romantic dinner out or a special occasion with family and friends, or even a corporate event.
The menu here includes signature Italian dishes with a focus on fresh seasonal ingredients from Italy and around the world, including plenty of fresh seafood. Antipasti include decadent dishes like roasted foie gras and Wagyu carpaccio, while mains are more substantial with plates of homemade pasta, risotto, steaks and poached fish. There is also an excellent wine list.

Overall Rating (1 – lowest/worst, 5 – highest/very good):
a. Location : 3 (Located within So Sofitel hotel area in Sentosa Singapore, accessible by trams or car into the island)
b. Food : 3 (Nice presentation but overall taste was so-so and food was served only lukewarm)

e. Price : 3 (A tad pricy unless you have an Accorplus membership to enjoy dining offers)
