Bringing your dog out for family lunch or dinner dates is a trying task when dog-friendly restaurants in Singapore seem few and far between. As much as our dogs are family to us, sometimes we have no choice but to leave the poor pooch at home when dining out.
To help resolve your dinner paw-blems, we’ve sussed out 11 dog-friendly restaurants that you can dine at while having your furbaby right by you.
This bistro in Punggol Park is the perfect stop for a meal after a serene walk with your dog. The chill ambience of the alfresco dining area is especially calming for hyperactive pups.
