Coastes is one of my absolute favourite places to hang out and I think I fell in love with it on my very first visit there about a year ago. Nothing beats having a good view of the beach, no deadlines to meet and plenty of satisfying good food around.
The eatery is situated along Siloso Beach at Sentosa, and nestled among the coconut trees. It is a place with numerous blue, white and brown tables, huge beige beach umbrellas, as well as a stretch of sunbeds leading all the way to the edge of the water.
Let us be realistic, the beaches in Singapore will never be able to compare with the famous beaches in our neighbouring countries, but this is as good as it gets for a Singapore beach.
We started of with some mocktails to help us cool down in this humid weather.
Shades of Summer ($10). Peach fruit, peach syrup, vanilla syrup, mango juice, coconut and ribena.
Peachy Beachy ($10). Peach fruit, peach syrup, strawberry, mango juice, butterscotch and coconut.
Spaghetti Prawn Aglio Olio ($28). Fresh tiger prawns sauteed with garlic and white wine, finished with extra virgin olive oil, tomatoes and basil.
Calamari Rings ($12), seasoned with pepper and salt, served with lime and coriander dip.
Coastes Chicken Wings (half portion, $10). Finger licking good! A must-try here.
Banoffee Tart ($12). Caramelised banana and toffee in sweet pastry. I would also recommend their creme brulee tart. It is equally fantastic!
Just so if you are interested, Coastes is a great place for hosting private events, with a seating capacity of about 340, and you can choose from either the beach or the deck area.
