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

An excellent option to dine wine and Spanish tapas. The location is very good at Clarke Quay area and they have the best live music later in the evening

Nice location but that's the only good thing. Staff is ok, just doing their job. Dishes are very small and super overpriced!! Totally a TOURIST TRAP: payed $70 for 3 small tapas and 2 drinks during happy hour(!!)... Guess what, we had a good kebap just around the corner to fill our empty stomaches:)

We ate here one night because we needed to quickly grab something before we went to the Night Safari. The food was very expensive and whilst it was nice, it was nothing special. We paid about $120 for 5 tapas dishes and three drinks. We did go during happy hour so drinks were half price. The restaurant is located on... More

Enjoyed the food and the beer but was pretty expensive for what we had. Still we had a great view and good service so overall was good. Toilets are a long way from the restaurant.

Right on Clarke Quay it is, like many of the other places, a good option to sit outside, have a drink, and people watch. And I would stop there. Foolishly, I went on to the food. Everything was over salted and over sauced as if trying to cover the food up. Octopus and shrimp were both overcooked. Just overall a... More

This is a good venue for just chilling out and the band are very good. The seating spacing is nicely arranged and you feel crowded. Its located by the Singapore River and there is lots to do and see there. I highly recommend this venue.

Given that Clarke Quay seems to close down at the weekends I was really pleased to find this nice restaurant open. The service was on the slow side and the restaurant quiet. I had an excellent paella and the restaurant added extra prawns for me at SDG10.00. Good value bottle of white wine and enjoyed sitting outside over looking the... More
