Good margaritas, OK food

This is a good place to drink margaritas and people watch. The food is OK at best and usually comes from the takeaway bar across the way. Good atmosphere and decent service but don't expect great cuisine.

Well I have to say that being from the US I was having a hard time going without an authentic Mexican meal. I have been in Singapore a couple months and am so glad I found this place. The food is fantastic and if you can believe it I'd have to say the best that I have eaten. In my... More

The prices are high – even for SG standards … but Let’s not forget you are paying for the view along the river here. But when I pay high prices I still expect value. Staff all seemed to concentrate on hooking in the next client off the street. So as soon as we were seated we were ignored. Drinks –... More

Dear N2T2, We're sorry to hear you had a disappointing experience at Señor Taco. Your feedback is of concern to us, as the taco with the highest cost at an order of two does not come close to 24 Singapore dollars including GST and the 10% service charge.

The food taste was bland, the portion was tiny and the presentation unappetizing. Not worth the price at all. Had it not for the ambience i would not hesitate to give it one star

Overprice and didn't taste good at all. I would never go back. The meat was awful. Nice staff though and good music. Would do for a beer but nothing else.

I grabbed dinner at senor taco one night. The portions were small and the food was bland. We ended up paying around SGD80 for 2 dishes and one sangria . I didn't find the place worthwhile and wouldn't recommend it to anybody.

Small but cosy and lively, with good band and dance crowd. Responsive and efficient service. Good drink selection. Wide selection of imported beers which are pricey but ok for Clarke Quay. The carnitas are reasonably priced, I enjoyed the bellypork carnita.

Staying in The Quays

Neighborhood Profile
The Quays
From Marina Bay, a walk along Singapore River will take you through the three Quays of the city, each offering a very different atmosphere. Boat Quay features historical sites and a buzzing riverfront vibe. Clarke Quay caters to the party crowd, while Robertson Quay appeals to the leisurely wanderer. Weekends at Robertson Quay and Martin Road also give a peek into the lives of expats in Singapore, as the riverfront teems with joggers, dog walkers, and those getting their caffeine fix over brunch or enjoying a burger and a beer. No matter what you’re up for, the three Quays have something to keep you happy, day or night.
