We sat inside . The place was a bit dark and they had only one waiter who was handling our order and the bar at the same time. Luckily only two tables were occupied so he could manage. Service was quick and the staff told us ahead that the paella we ordered would take 20 minutes. The starters were good... More

I wish that staff wouldn't assume that I'm an 'Ang Mo Tourist' just because I have a white face which then excuses their bad service. I've lived in Singapore for 4 years and this is probably the worst service I've experienced to date. The waiter seemed to be totally disinterested in his job to the point of forgetting to place...

Nice location by the riverside, outdoor sitting is nice. Food is good quality but the portions are very small for the price, like two small pieces of bread with ham for 12$. Happy hour is worth it for the drinks, service was not outstanding but friendly enough.

Stumbled onto this place after a few jugs of margaritas and ordered dinner. The tapas was ahhhhhmazing and the love band was fantastic. We had a great night in this place.

Had a bad experience, ordered churros. The churros are tasteless and the chocolate is not refined. A Spanish place that ran out of sangria. We spilled a cup of drink and the servers didn't notice. We need to ask specifically to clear up the spill. Overall, a pretty terrible experience.

Buzzing tapas restaurant in Clarke Quay. Lovely outdoor seating and quite a menu. Wine menu could be more extensive but it seems beer is the favourite beverage in Singapore. Food was good and reasonably priced. Waiters were friendly but seemed to be far too little staff for such a busy restaurant.

Like others reviewing before me, I found this place expensive, but so are most of places on the quayside. Pints of Tiger at 16 dollars each, but before 8pm it's half-price, so I ordered 2 having checked they would both be half price. Food was ok, they have a few veggie dishes and I actually found the portions bigger than... More

A great place to dine in Singapore. Good atmosphere, good views and wonderful food. Especially good at happy hour when selected drinks are half price. Beef marinated in sherry is particularly good.

I went here with my wife & another couple, as one of our group wanted a break from Asian cuisine. What a mistake. The food was appalling, the service ordinary, the price overly expensive for what you get, and the portion size minute. I ordered the Gratinised fish, it came burnt , hard as a rock, in what could be... More
