The latest islander-inspired restaurant managed by Refinery Concepts opens on 1 April 2019. The all-day dining restaurant located within Village Hotel at Sentosa serves up authentic and wholesome cuisine from the tropics, in a setting that welcomes the sharing of meals and conversations. The menu celebrates the best of Asian and Polynesian island culture and cuisine, using fresh ingredients and culinary techniques that bring out their natural flavours.

The restaurant is helmed by Executive Chef Patrice Godino from France. With close to 20 years of international experience and expertise in a wide range of culinary styles, Chef Patrice is an epicurean who aspires to create a memorable dining experience for every guest. He carved his career by working with top chefs in Europe, and subsequently led kitchens in various parts of the world, including tropical islands. He has taken up culinary stints in Spain, Switzerland, the West Indies, the Caribbean, and Australia, from 5-star hotels to fine dining.

Under Chef Patrice’s direction, Native Kitchen’s menu includes iconic dishes from various islands in Southeast Asia as well as the Polynesian islands. Well-loved local favourites are featured in the menu, alongside international food, to suit all palates. He believes in the simplicity of food – that a good meal should be easy to appreciate, and the flavours of fresh produce must stand out without being masked by heavy sauces or extensive plating.

Some of the restaurant’s signature dishes that are bound to whet your appetite for more include appetisers such as the Watermelon & Feta Salad which is served with watermelon, feta cheese, cherry tomatoes and cucumber in a lime dressing and tossed with chia seeds, and the delicious Island Ceviche with Barramundi, cucumbers and carrots marinated in lime juice, coconut milk and ginger.

Conveniently located near family-friendly attractions such as Palawan Beach and KidZania Singapore, and next to a Sentosa Express monorail station, Native Kitchen is a natural choice especially for families.

Sharing platters and live wood tables with space for up to 28 guests at a sitting are designed to suit families and groups of all sizes. A special Kids Menu, which doubles up as an activity sheet, is available for young children.

Every morning, Native Kitchen serves a Breakfast Buffet for families, travellers and staycationers staying at Village Hotel at Sentosa. Guests can look forward to a wide variety of Asian and Western delights, fruits, cereals, juices and hot morning brews to kickstart the day.

Designed as an expression of nature which revolves around the sea, sky, breeze, sunlight and tropical greens, Native Kitchen is a carefree oasis with a homely yet sophisticated vibe. The restaurant is an ideal location for gatherings or very special social occasions from networking events and product launches to romantic solemnisation ceremonies and birthday parties.
