“most restaurant staff is pressed to make money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Boat Quay, a lovely site of Singapore, but!
Be careful with the selection of a restaurant at boat quay!
The staff is pressed to make money. Check the price on the menu and check the bill!
The price of 25 SGD for pine-apple rice and 6 SGD for a small bottle of mineral water is maybe the upper price category.
When finally the waiter deducted the beer and nuts (which I did not order) from the bill it came to a total of 36.50 SGD. Singapore is usually famous for tasty food and good service.
FUQING Seafood Restaurant did not achieve the standard.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Best time to take a boat is around 6-6:30 pm. You can enjoy the view in day light as well as light lights. Its awesome in night too.

“Nightlife is here!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

With a great variety of restaurants and bars, this is the place to be at night, go out, and have some fun, while overlooking the beautiful canal, in the middle of downtown Singapore!

“Water-side Walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

It's a bit touristy along the water , but you can get great views of the Marina Bay Casino at nght from the waterfront eateries. If you go one block in from the water it's a whole different local scene that is worth exploring.

“Overpriced restaurants”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

Seafood restaurants are generally overpriced. What a rip off eg S$18.00 for the tiniest sized Singapore noodle dish.
