Nice atmosphere

Good located, great view towards the river. Service was friendly and the food was good, but not fabulous. The size for a main course is small, and the one came 30 minutes before the other. They have a happy hour before 8 p.m. for the drinks.

I had drinks here with a friend, the location is wonderful, right on the canal and by a bridge so it's great for people watching and a nice view. The service was a little slow and they seemed more interested in closing up that serving us, but it was a good spot, and I really do love the name, great... More

The food there is very good and the view is perfect family and couple. I just hope the staff is more smiley.

Everything in Clarke Quay is so expensive, but Octapas actually had some reasonably priced dishes that were decent sized despite being tapas. The few that we had were really quite good. Combined with a great show of live music, and a fairly attentive wait staff, I'd recommend this spot.

Wish there was a 'Good' category rather than just 'Very good' as 'Average' is a bit non committal? For the area with lots of restaurants you are spoilt for choice and as many people there are breaking their journeys across the world, as we were, we were happy to have chosen Octapas and can say it was 'good'. We had... More

Had just a single night stopover in Singapore on the way to Australia. Wanted to have dinner at Clarke Quay, just which of the many restaurants to choose? Octapas was advertising a house special paella and we thought that would fit the bill. We knew it would take a good 30 minutes to prepare, and it did. Luckily happy hour... More

Very good paella. Great location at Clark's Quay next to the riverside. Popular area in Singapore. Good mojito and sangria.

There are so many restaurants at Clark Quay to choose from, we just got lucky with this one. It has a wide variety of tapas, of very good quality, and with good service. The choice of wine by the glass was very limited, but the good food was worth it.

Service was average but at least they had a long happy hour, as the normal cost of drinks was $15.00 for a beer. The wine was good - McGuigan from Australia & half price. We had deep fried squid & chicken in a cream sauce & really good garlic bread. The food was not bad but still pretty average. I... More

This is the second time we are hitting this place in consecutive trips to Singa. I think this is the best spot in Clarke's for riverside dining. I like the tapas range and quality as well.
