ORTO West Coast Has 24/7 Prawning, Thai Food & A Mermaid Bar Near Haw Par Villa

ORTO West Coast

Just recently, we bid goodbye to ORTO Yishun which offered 24-hour prawning and fishing, a trampoline park, and the popular BKK Bistro & Bar.

If you’re still mourning about losing that hangout spot, you’ll be delighted to learn that they have recently relocated to the West. It’s situated just opposite Haw Par Villa, so here’s a glimpse of what awaits you at ORTO West Coast:

– Activities –

Go prawning to catch your own seafood

Westies in search of late-night prawning places can add Prawning @ ORTO to your list. Have a go at catching big head prawns at their 2 expansive prawning ponds. Prawns are released every 1.5 hours from 11am-2am, so strategic prawning peeps might want to plan their trip around these intervals.

Prices start from $22/pax for an hour of prawning, which includes a drink, a rod, and bait. Don’t worry if you suay and don’t catch anything after hours of anticipation, as guaranteed prawns are provided to ensure you still get to relish some seafood after the activity.

Besides drinks, you can also order bar bites like chicken wings ($8.90) and fries ($6.90) to munch on while prawning.

The grill is provided FOC for you to cook your catch. However, if the thought of preparing your own food seems like a day’s work in itself, you can get their partner restaurant, 88 SGMY Seafood, to whip up your meal from $9.90. There is also an array of accompanying flavours to choose from, such as salted egg and mala.

“Underwater” dining experience with mermaid performances

While Sebastian may argue that life under the sea is better, the reality is that we can’t survive underwater. However, if you’ve ever yearned to be part of their world, a visit to The Mermaid Bar can offer you a glimpse of that magical realm.

This place might be a dream come true especially if you or your little ones have been captivated by The Little Mermaid movie that was recently released. The restaurant’s built-in aquarium isn’t just mere decoration; every night from 7.30pm, you can witness live mermaid performances. They’ll interact with guests, waving and even blowing kisses.

The restaurant’s menu is also inspired by the wonders of the sea, with dishes like Fish & Chips ($16) and Red Prawn Linguine ($36) to complement the underwater theme.
