Less hurried than the nearby Clarke Quay, Robertson Quay provides a respite for diners looking for a dinner away from the throngs of tourists, locals and party-goers that often frequent its fellow wharf.
Despite Robertson Quay's slower pace, there's no lack of dining options -- the area is packed with restaurants offering everything from favourites like Italian fare to French and Belgium cuisine.
We pick five of our favourite dining locations to enjoy the charming enclave.
Bella Pizza is consistently lauded by local food critics for serving the best pizza in Singapore, including food blogger Brad Lau, better known as "ladyironchef", who deems the pies at Bella Pizza "the best pizza in Singapore".
What sets the offerings at Bella's apart from generic slices is Chef Antonio Manetto's insistence on making the dough from scratch, using only the freshest ingredients and baking the pies to his exacting standards.
Bella's also offers barcas -- boat-shaped pizza dough containing pizza sauce and melted cheese -- in addition to the usual range of red (tomato-based) and white (cheese-based) pizzas and calzones.

Run by the award-winning chef Luca Pezzera -- who found his culinary calling at the age of 14 when he first touched pizza dough and proclaimed that he wanted to be a chef -- Bonta has legions of fans to back its claim of being one of Singapore's best Italian eateries.
Bonta specialises in Northern Italian fare, which focuses using of fresh, seasonal ingredients, and preparing them as simply as possible to bring out their natural flavours.
Bonta's pastas and risotto are well executed, but it's the fresh seafood dishes like Atlantic cod fillet with asparagus, grilled marinated zucchini, cherry tomato and herb oil that truly showcases chef Pezzera's flair.

With vintage overhead lamps, plush leather seats, maple wooden flooring, and a striking wall of framed accolades and memorabilia, Brasserie Wolf is the picture of Parisian style. And yet, there isn't an ounce of pretension in this cosy bistro.
One of the most recognisable fixtures along Robertson Quay, Brasserie Wolf is now into its fifth year of business, and customers still come faithfully for its blend of authentic French fare and irresistible charm. Its French onion soup, a hearty bowl of savoury broth with caramelised onions and encased under comte cheese, is one of our absolute "must orders" wherever we go.

Belgium food isn't easy to find in Singapore, but Brussels Sprouts has established itself thanks, in part, to the man behind the bistro, Belgian celebrity chef Emmanuel Stroobant -- as well as the extensive array of Belgian beers (totalling to 120) he stocks.
Besides the staggering number and types of beers, Brussels Sprouts also counts its moules frites (mussels and fries), braised veal cheeks in Brune beer and duck confit with Kriek beer amongst its house specialties.

One of the most common misconceptions about Thai food is that it should be cheap. In actual fact, Thai cuisine "is a very complicated cuisine that not only requires a head-spinning array of ingredients, but also a lot of labor to produce", explains Soul Food's Wrisley.
The love is felt at Kha, where the meticulous preparation that goes into the modern Thai fare is evident. The food is excellently executed and beautifully plated whilst retaining all the integrity of authentic Thai classics.
The yam tang, for example, is an interesting take on the ubiquitous Thai salad, offering a bed of poached chicken mixed with pomegranate seeds, cucumber, herbs, greens and cashew. It's crunchy and refreshing all at once. A variety of exotic cocktails are also available.
