Good tostadas but expensive.

The food is ok but everything serve in small plate. This is not a place for hungry one. Salmon tostadas is quite good. Nice location, sit, sip sangria and enjoy the wind from the river.

Dined here on a friday night, location in Boat Quay is very good right on the water, so perfect for warmer nights. Make sure you take advantage of the happy hour specials on drinks which is 50% off before 8pm...a must for when alcohol in Singapore. Service was good, food was received in a timely manner, and was really good,... More

Waitress dicided by himself to keep all change for his tip and... More

We were wandering along the Quays, it was getting late, we fancied a wee change in the food line so decided to try here. It was busy but we got a table outside overlooking the river. Octapas has a really nice laid-back, even kinda romantic, ambiance to it - the tables aren't all squashed together so even when it's busy,... More

I recently spent three weeks in Singapore and visited the Octapas several times for great food and entertainment. I highly recommend the Valenciana, their signature dish from Valencia, which includes chorizo, chicken, mussels, squids, shrimps & fish. It is delicious and great for sharing with others as it comes in serving sizes for 2 or 4 people. They have both... More

We last visited Octapas in early 2015 for dinner, this time we took our work team there for lunch and it was tops. We were the only people out on the terrace beside the river, but it was undershade and the fans kept us nicely cooled. We ordered a range of food to try and the beers were always cold.... More

lots of restaurants to choose from and we weren't disappointed . The food was tasty and plentiful ( if a tad overpriced ) but the peaceful surroundings and views made up for this

A truly wonderful evening spent at Octapas, table right by the river, live music and great, great food. I would definitely recommend the baby back ribs. Well presented, tasty and beautiful food. Will definitely eat here again.

A great location on the promenade to watch the night become alive in Singapore. Drinks were outrageously priced (welcome to Singapore). Our paella must have been forgotten in the oven because it came out a overcooked. Perhaps the staff is overwhelmed and try to seat too many patrons?

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.
