Walking along Boat Quay, or sitting at a restaurant table along the Singapore River, the combination of Bank skyscrapers and Chinese shop houses (where the restaurants are) is always impressive. Of course with a view on the historical site of the landing of Raffles thrown in. Don't be deterred by the sometimes pushy approach of the barkers, trying to get... More

Boat Quay offers many restaurants and bars of all kinds, although most don't open until lunch time. Best visited at night you can have a nice meal or drink sitting alongside the Singapore River. Keep you small kids close since it is easy for them to jump in the river. Visit on a Friday evening to see true Singapore culture.

Boat Quay isn't the same. They've got sleazy bars. I miss the man Utd bar the most. There's this Spanish themed bar worth a visit. Their Filipino staff are both males and are pretty good at what they do.

Old blend with modern building along the river near Raffles Place MRT. Very claiming and relaxing in city atmosphere. Lots of tourist type of restaurant with river view. Great for business meeting.

I liked Boat Quay - the views are wonderful if you get a table by the river, and there is plenty of atmosphere.
