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. It's fun wandering through Boat Quay as long as you accept you will be hassled by restaurant staff. Just two bits of advice: 1) Be very wary when ordering seafood - this is often charged by weight...

Most of the restaurants along this stretch of prime river front are fairly mediocre, and it's a little annoying as you stroll along here getting accosted by the various touts. If you come at lunchtime then there are quite a few good deals available, but it's warm outside.

It's a nice area for a stroll, a drink or a bite of food and some photo shooting. Nothing too special but a good place to spend a few hours in the middle of the city.

Great place for a drink and a bite to eat. All sorts of western cuisine and bars to match. Seems to be the after work haunt of the expats.

Naff, crass, rowdy and like something out of a bad Spanish resort in the 70s. Overcrowded bars with drunken clientele. Why this is deemed and 'attraction' I have no idea. We crossed the bridge towards Clarke Quay and found a small row of nice, civilised restaurants between the two celebrated Quays, thankfully, and had a nice dinner in Ricciotti. Won't... More

I was in Singapore for a one-week vacation, and ended up spending half my nights having dinner and drinks at the Boat Quay/Clarke Quay areas. This area is especially beautiful at night, and even though the quay runs along the entire strip, you can't detect any "fishy" or "salty" smell of the ocean, so you can have a pleasant dinner...
