Ocean Restaurant at ResortsWorld Sentosa reopens with a completely refreshed new look, a new Celebrity Chef at its helm and a new menu that reflects both the restaurant’s and RWS’ commitment to sustainability.
The elegant restaurant overlooks the enthralling marine world of S.E.A. Aquarium’s Open Ocean Habitat which is home to more than 40,000 marine animals.
Chef Olivier Bellin – Chef-Owner of Two Michelin-starred L’Auberge des Glazicks
Ocean Restaurant welcomes Olivier Bellin, chef-owner of two Michelin-starred L’Auberge des Glazicks in Brittany, France, as its new Chef Patron. Born and trained in France, Chef Bellin began his culinary career as an apprentice in Lycée Le Paraclet, Quimper.
He would go on to work with master chefs Joël Robuchon, Jacques Thorel, Jean Coussau and Guy Guilloux. The talented and hands-on chef eventually returned to his parent’s inn and transformed it into the renowned L’Auberge des Glazicks which has been awarded Two Michelin Stars since 2010.
As a third-generation chef whose family has owned L’Auberge des Glazicks for over a century, Chef Bellin is a passionate advocate for combining Michelin-starred culinary excellence with sustainable standards. At L’Auberge des Glazicks, he sources his ingredients entirely from Brittany’s local fisheries and terroir, grows herbs and vegetables in his own garden, and is fervent about reducing packaging and plastics in his kitchen.
Chef Bellin’s culinary philosophy is resonant with Ocean Restaurant’s longstanding commitment to uphold S.E.A. Aquarium’s sustainability ethos which includes biodiversity conservation, advancing research and environmental education and advocacy.
Chef Bellin’s new menus at Ocean Restaurant demonstrate a commitment to sustainable gastronomy and are seafood-focused. Offering a collection of new creations he specially conceived for Ocean Restaurant, the menus feature responsibly sourced seafood, local produce and house-grown herbs.
Taking inspiration from the restaurant’s location in S.E.A. Aquarium, his creations emphasize the fresh natural and healthy flavours of the sea. This complements the awe-inspiring view of the marine world that Ocean Restaurant offers and immerses guests in the underwater destination dining experience.
French-inspired Cocktails and Award-winning Wine Labels
In the newly redesigned Ocean Restaurant, the bar is the first space you’ll step into when you walk through the entrance where you are greeted with the calming colour palette of blue and stone, with textured glass bricks that mimic the rippling of water. You can enjoy a range of bespoke French-inspired cocktails at the bar pre-dinner, or at their dining table.
The restaurant also features a brand-new wine cellar with over 400 wine labels ranging from award-winning wineries to boutique outfits – including a choice selection of sustainable wines.
Reimagined Interior Design using Sustainable Materials
Ocean Restaurant’s new interiors is inspired by the majestic and highly threatened manta ray. The marine environment is drawn into the dining room through graceful architectural lines reminiscent of the manta ray’s streamlined movement, a deep sea colour palette and minimalist silver pendant lights.
Sustainable and ethically sourced materials are used as much as possible in its refurbishment. A certified environmentally friendly premium alternative to timber is used for the ceiling and wall finishes, and the stone tiles in the restaurant comprises up to 40 per cent recycled material.
The plush carpet is certified for low emissions according to the CRI Green Label Plus while the dining chairs are made with a post-consumer recycled polyester yarn containing marine plastics, and the banquette seats are enveloped in deep aquamarine fabrics that are certified Made in Green by OEKO-TEX, a traceable product label that has been manufactured in environmentally friendly facilities under safe and socially responsible working conditions.
The 50-seater restaurant also offers a private dining room for six persons which is encased with one-way glass mirror-like panels that gives you privacy as you gaze at the breathtaking sight of giant manta rays, schooling fish and a host of diverse marine life swimming just a few feet away.
Ocean Restaurant is open for lunch from 11.30am to 3.00pm at $148++ per person and dinner from 6.00pm to 10.30pm at $248++ per person. Ocean Restaurant is located at Equarius Hotel, B1M West Carpark in Resorts World Sentosa.
