Bar with some Spanish menu at Clark Quay

It was not my first time to Clark Quay, but it was for my colleague. We went to the quay in the evening and looked for a place for dine & drink. Finally, we chose Octapas because the size of tapas would allow us to test many dishes. The special drink of the month, e.g. berry mixed Sangria, was... read more

This is a very good restaurant. However the food wasn't amazing. It's just good quality tapas. It was quite expensive but I guess that's for the riverside restaurant price. The staff were good and the services was that of what you would expect at a standard taps restaurant. They bring the food as soon as it's ready. The ribs were... More

Located in Clarke quae, so there is great view but Too expensive, as all the restaraunts in that area. We had 1 plate of paellias for two, 2 starters and a bottle of water and we payed almost 100 dollars. Note that the water costed 11 dollars. The food was ok, but overpriced.

Stopped in here for a light lunch. Ordered 2 tapas meals and a beer each. Food was excellent. Finished off with Churros and chocolate sauce that were delicious.Prices reasonable for Singapore. Service good. Recommend. Recently on another visit had seafood Paella. It was amazing. Worth the wait.

Right off the bat, Tapas means 'small Spanish savoury dishes'. So, for those reviewing making comments about the plates being small, now you know why. There were also comments about it being "touristy". The entire area caters to tourists, expects, locals, etc... It's an eatery and shopping area, much like MOST of the areas in Singapore.... No on to the... More

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

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

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.
