Portico Prime, a modern European restaurant and bar located within Dempsey Hills, an iconic lifestyle dining destination in Singapore.

Serving casual modern European food-fare and tapas in an elegant colonial house setting, our tall ceilings, white brick columns and simple yet refined interiors invite you to just sit back and savor – the indulgent menu selection, the friendly attentive service and the lovely company of friends and family. Our alfresco area looks out onto an expanse of lush greenery, a rare sight in Singapore. It is the perfect spot for many occasions: a business lunch, chilling out with friends, that romantic date or hearty family brunches on weekends. A culinary retreat in more ways than one – let our chef’s innovative creations delight your palates and the peaceful, luscious environment embrace your senses.

Portico Prime recently bagged the prestigious Singapore’s Top Restaurants 2016 Award by WINE&DINE under the Modern European Category.


Portico Prime is a suitable venue for many occasions. Our interior holds a spacious main dining hall, 2 private rooms and a bar, in addition to alfresco dining space and an outdoor garden, all housed within the prominent Block 10 of Dempsey Hills. Diners can choose to have pre drinks at our bar, proceed to main dining hall for their meal then end with dessert and drinks at the alfresco area adjacent to our garden. Dining becomes a gastronomic experience when you are at Portico Prime.

We have hosted and organized different types of events such as weddings & solemnizations, product launches, fashion shows, birthday/private themed parties, kids parties, corporate events, networking sessions, business meetings and wine/whisky tasting events.

Bespoke Events for Every Need & Want

We believe that every event should be special and unique, reflecting not only the homeliness of the restaurant, but the character of the host. This is why we don’t do repeat menus or event styles, because every party or celebration hosted at Portico is fully customised and bespoke to the host’s needs and wants.

Portico’s modular space can be tailored to accommodate individual needs and provide each and every guest with an unforgettable highly personalised experience. Our team can custom design specific experiences for special events from bespoke dishes to stylised table settings – the kind of moments that guests will talking about long after the event has ended.

Food Imagineering

The young and dynamic Portico team have stepped admirably up to the challenge of bringing their own influences to the Portico menu. Their focus is upon reinventing classic homely dishes with a touch of finesse. The team at Portico work towards a simple ethic: They prepare and serve food that they would enjoy serving guests in their own home. This is never more evident than in the simple way that dishes are presented. It’s this ethos that has won them awards like Chope’s Diner’s Choice Awards New Restaurant of the Year 2014 and Open Rice’s Top Ten Best New Restaurants of 2014.

We Are Singavores

A menu replete with a full selection of foods, from hearty snacks, healthy soups and salads, and filling sandwiches, through to generous main courses, followed by tempting desserts. All of these options are served in Portico’s simple, homely style. Simple presentation does not mean simple tastes though. A lot of thought is focused towards flavours, textures and presentation without neglecting the soul and essence of the dish.

The Portico menu has been imagineered to provide hearty food using fresh seasonal ingredients – where possible these ingredients are sourced locally or are taken from our own edible garden. We consider ourselves Singavores or Singapore “locavores”, a movement that focuses on sourcing and eating food locally. For example, we work very closely with Tiberias Harvest, which offers fish delivered within hours from its sea farm, located off the north-eastern coast of Pulau Ubin. They emphasise using the right techniques in their harvest and post-harvest process, to ensure the quality of each order.
