Overpriced for avarage food

We ate at this restaurant after an American expat friend told us it was nearby our hotel on Orchard Rd. It was an average weeknight, and we were hungry. The wait staff seemed uninterested in serving us even water, even though we asked more than once. We watched the next table get served 2 times... read more

Nice al fresco location. FANTASTIC lamb chops on skewer. Staff friendly and helpful, but probably need a couple more waiters/waitresses to cover resto efficiently

We tried the restaurant this time, as previously we had been to the Tapas bar. Restaurant staff were very attentive while we were choosing from the Restaurant menu, or the Tapas menu. However, after our order was taken, and the restaurant started getting busier, it was near nigh impossible to get the wait staff to even acknowledge our table. Food... More

Singapore is experiencing the birth of tapas and it is catching on quickly. Esmirada is in Chijmes, which is a great setting. The prices here are reasonable and the portions are fine. The choices are pretty standard for a tapas bar, including potatas bravas et al. They do offer a loyalty scheme here and it does provide a great central,... More

Been to this restaurant many times. Food is always just all right. Never exceptional but never bad. Anyway, we went again last night. The penne arabitata was excellent. Cous cous, paella, mezza was ok. They ran out of spinach at 7pm. That is not acceptable! The wait help were not attentive and definitely not genuine. We had to pour our... More

Average in standards. If u like Italian food, Prego (in Raffles City) or Senso is much better.
