Arbora Hilltop Garden & Bistro Comes Refreshed for Quality Family Time
Enjoy fresh botanical-inspired additions to the menu with family-friendly combos, affordable lunches, a limited-time-only PEAKnic set and even delivery options to enjoy your favourite dishes at home.
One Faber Group’s Arbora Hilltop Garden & Bistro unveils an updated name, along with a refreshed family-friendly menu selection, available from 7 October 2020. Located at Faber Peak, one of the leading hilltop destinations in Singapore, Arbora now offers guests a hilltop garden dining concept, enhanced by the natural surroundings of the hillside, for quality family time.
Besides serving up fresh botanical-inspired dishes suitable for kids, family combos and a curated beverage list, there are also plenty of other activities for kids to see and do at the hilltop restaurant. At 100m above sea level, the panoramic view from Arbora is sure to excite the little ones, where they can spot the Singapore Cable Car, vessels around Harbourfront, and prominent Sentosa landmarks.
Arbora has also updated their kids’ menu with a wider variety of choices, and even provides a kid’s menu activity sheet with food-safe colour pencils to keep little hands entertained till the meal arrives! The whole family can also get together and ring Poland’s Bells of Happiness at the Arbora Garden to bring blessings of joy or make a wish and hang a wishing bell on the bridge just outside the restaurant.
There’s no better place to create memorable family experiences than at Arbora!
What’s New at Arbora Hilltop Garden & Bistro
Executive Chef Kenny Yeo, who conceptualised the new menu additions, will delight with his signature style that melds Asian and European influences. The new menu introduces a selection of family-friendly dishes with ingredients to reflect the natural backdrop of the restaurant. The dishes lend themselves well to being shared between parents and children – kids will love the fresh, sweet bursts of flavour from the natural ingredients.
Drawing on the numerous papaya and mango trees that dot Mount Faber, Chef Kenny has refreshed a local rojak dish with shreds of papaya and mango for a fresh, fruity twist to create the Arbora Rojak. Even the pickiest eater will be eager to dig in right alongside their parents – whether it’s shaking up a storm with the Caesar Salad (In a Jar) or cracking into dessert for a surprise.
Salads & Sides
CAESER SALAD (IN A JAR) ($15++)
An interactive update on a classic favourite for the whole family to enjoy. Chicken, bacon bits, quail eggs and croutons are served on a bed of crisp romaine lettuce, with salad dressing on the side. This is a dish that children will be eager to get involved in, dressing the salad to their liking by tossing the ingredients in the jar.
ARBORA ROJAK ($16++)
An Arbora-only twist on our favourite local salad, this version switches out the usual shredded vegetables for thin slices of green mango and papaya with bean sprouts, tofu puffs and cucumber. Kids will love the peculiar flavours of the rojak – the warm, satisfying crunch of the fried ebi prawns, contrasting against chilled salad.
Mains & Dessert
PINEAPPLE-GLAZED PORK RIBS ($28++)
Marinated in pineapple puree and tomato sauce for four hours to allow the fruits’ naturally acidic properties to fully tenderise the meat, the ribs are then steam-baked in a combination oven, keeping the meat tender and juicy. Browned under a grill for an added depth to the flavour, the ribs are served with a side of spiced sweet potato fries.
FLOWER POT SURPRISE ($16++)
A treat for all five senses, everything on this dessert plate is edible – including the miniature milk chocolate flowerpot! Concealed within the pot and topped with cookie crumble is a rich lemon cream to balance against the sweet chocolate, cookie and berries, and kids will have fun cracking open the chocolate shell to dig in.
Families dining at Arbora can look forward to purchasing a Family Combo, complete with two adult mains and up to two children’s meals.

Curated Teas and Botanical Concoctions
Joining Chef Kenny to ensure that the beverage menu complements the new garden-forward theme is F&B Manager Mohamed Yazid. Inspired by the relaxing, natural foliage of Faber Peak, the Arbora Singapore Dream Tea is a blend created by Mohamed exclusively for Arbora, featuring the sweet notes of wild berries. It joins a carefully curated selection of 10 teas that focus on quality ingredients. Boasting whole tea leaves, uncrushed flower buds and dried berries, guests will be treated to a quality experience that caters to every palate. Served in a pot perfect for one, guests can enjoy a warm cuppa while taking in the views around them.
Those who prefer a spirited adventure mid-day can choose between two new botanical concoctions – the Botanic Pineapple Boost or the Botanic Watermelon Boost. Drawing on Mohamed’s experiences travelling through Argentina and Mexico, the new tipples call to mind classic flavours from those regions – perfect for Mum and Dad to take the edge off over a relaxing lunch! The fruity cocktails are light, refreshing, and wonderful for relaxing on warm afternoons as the children finish up their Arbora activity sheets!
ARBORA SINGAPORE DREAM TEA ($6++ a pot)
Served in a cafetière to let the tea steep to perfection, the red hue of the tea brings to mind the patriotic pride that Mount Faber holds, being not just home to one of Singapore’s oldest parks, but also to the iconic Singapore Cable Car. The sweet scent of wild berries is balanced by whole black tea leaves, a well-rounded brew exclusively available at Arbora.
BOTANIC PINEAPPLE BOOST ($12++)
The sweet coconut flavour of Malibu rum is lifted with tangy fresh-squeezed pineapple juice, and rounded off with a shot of triple sec.
BOTANIC WATERMELON BOOST ($12++)
Refreshing and rehydrating, freshly squeezed watermelon juice is mixed with Bombay Gin and triple sec for an easy afternoon drink.
Affordable Lunch Dishes Catered for Local Tastebuds
Looking to elevate your lunch hour? At just $12++, Arbora’s lunches provide not just a tasty, wallet friendly meal, but also comes with a natural alfresco setting featuring panoramic views to take a break in. Catered to local taste buds, the selection includes local favourites such as the Chicken Biryani Set, Bak Kut Teh, Prawn Hokkien Mee, Singapore Laksa, and Curry Chicken with Roti Prata, along with regional delights like the Teriyaki Salmon Don, Beef Hamburg Don and Chicken Somen.
