Having been to Singapore many times on business I'd never been to Clark Quay or Boat Quay. We went to Clark Quay first but found it too noisy and clubby and walked down to Boat Quay. Plenty of restaurants along the river here but the staff shoving menus in your face and offering you free drinks to dine with them... More

Boat Quay is a little bit expensive, like everything in this area, but its really about the location, which makes it perfect. Really nice to enjoy the famous green beer at RedDot brewery...it's worth trying :)

Boat Quay has a wide choice of restaurants to choose from, all of which offer al fresco dining next to the Singapore River. The river itself is a little dirty, but the riverbank is a pleasant enough place for a meal. Most of the menus here are a little expensive.

I just loved this place while we had dinner at Kinara. Atmosphere here was too good and it was fun sitting on banks of river and having dinner.

As with Clarke Quay, boat quay is another we stocked restaurant and bar area. Its history goes way back to the beginnings of Singapore and the Chinese population. As a side note - it is well worth the time to do a river cruise and lean the history of this and other areas along the river. Anyway, Boat Quay has... More

I had been in Singapore for around 3 years. This is one of those places in Singapore where I would love to spend the weekends. Its a good place to be during weekends with the place teeming with life & lots of music. There are a number of pubs & restaurants along the river side offering a variety of food... More
