This place has been recpmmended by singapore based friends. We enjoyed a nice black pepper crab....it could not have been more delicious. Upon checking the bill we noticed that they charge us 1.50$ for the peanuts that were served with the drinks. We never ordered these nuts and thought they are complementary. This was the only drawback. U should book... More

U loved it except for the nuts they offer which are probably complimentary but I got charged for them. My advice is don't accept anything they offer unless you don't mind otherwise you will be charged for it.

We had the chilli crab, drunken prawns, seafood fried rice, tofu hot pot and the seafood chicken skin dish. In all honesty, a beautiful meal. Best Chilli crab we ever had....not too spicy and not too sweet. We used all the deep fried bread to soak up the delicious crab sauce. Plus they tie a bib on you to prevent... More

Surprisingly got a table quite easily on a Friday night. Service was a bit slow. Food was great. Prices are not on the cheap side. MIght be cheaper places to get chilli crab but at least the quality of food was consistent.

This has been one my most disappointing visit to a restaurant in Singapore. I have been to Jumbo East coast as also to Jumbo Clark Quay. Both of them were if not exceptional but they were good and service was exceptional. But the one at Dempsey was on the wrong foot to begin with. Stewards taking the orders were lost... More

Part of a small chain which is known for it's chilling and black pepper crab. Just as well we made a reservation. We arrived on time but were requested to finish our meal by 8 pm. This gave us a couple of hours to order our food, get served, eat and leave. Honestly, although sufficient time to two hour time... More

Very well known local seafood . If you are grouper more than 3 or 4 be sure to book. Apart from seafood they do some very spicy lamb cutlets which are more the size of a chop. They are renowned for there chilly mud crab. The service is impeccable . It was not bad food , but not magical .... More

We had a large table outside, definitely a great idea. Nice selection of seafood and other dishes and everything was great - no disappointments. They promptly come around for more food and drinks orders, nice bowls to clean up your hands after crab & similar. Definitely a place I'd return to !
