When this riverside street of pubs and restaurants opened more than 2 decades ago, it wasn't as popular as the nearby Clark Quay or Boat Quay as they were closer to the business districts for the happy hour crowds. Thus since then this riverside street, being in an upper class condominium residential areas appealed to those whom prefer a quieter evening. Better ambience and a romantic evening can be had whether you wine and dine or just take a walk down the river. Today, in the Covid19 pandemic, the scene is much different. Since tourism, pubbing and clubbing is non existent, working from home encouraged thus much less working crowd in the business districts, Boat Quay and Clark Quay are quiet daily and begs for business while Robertson Quay is bustling with diners daily. Mostly residents in the area love the fact that you can now dine out, stay on for a drink till late. Afterall currently all drinking activities has to end at 1030pm thus no point going far. A change of fortune and Robertson Quay is well poised for a boom for now.

While our partners were out doing their thing, my mate & I + his son visited the Boomerang Bar in Robertson Quay. It was a bar recommended to me by another fellow visitor to Singapore. Luck for us it was only about a 10 minute walk from the hotel. We went to watch the AFL finals on their TV's. Food was very good, place was reasonably busy and the beers cold. You couldn't complain about the service as we were constantly asked if we needed anything. The drinks were a bit pricey but come to expect that in some more upmarket areas.

Great neighbourhood with tons of resturants, bars and some cafes. Most of them are on the expensive side given the location. But they is quite a variety..located next to the Singapore river, it's a great place for evening walks. You will be see people running and cycling in the area all day long

Firstly, the location is really great to be next to the Riverside and it's not too crowded. A good place to get a leisurely stroll before and after.

There's lots of different high end cuisines here - Italian, Japanese, Persian even. Good place to have a comfortable night out with good food. Also can go from restaurant to nearby bars. I like shabestan and wine connection.

In my opinion this side of the river is much preferable for a nice dinner or drinks, than the neighbouring Clarke Quay.

Much more pleasant and chilled atmosphere, nice selection of restaurants and generally less annoyingly loud people.

There is a really nice pizza place just past the eM Bar called Giardano, really great pizza and casual setting, not yet rated on TripAdvisor

Also nice just for an evening stroll without drinks or dining.

Having heard so much about the Alt Pizza at Robertson Quay, we decided to give it a try this Easter weekend and boy, were we delighted with the choice! DIY Pizza is an innovative way for you to make your choice of pizza ingredients, toppings etc. DTI, i.e., Do Try It, would be my advice! The dips were also mouthwatering...we tried the Spinach & Artichoke dip, which was just great. The colorful walls and ambience added to a great fun lunch on a long lazy weekend. Much recommended.

Robertson Quay is awesome, but...

Warning! Do not visit Barraka. Yes, their wine prices are affordable - but make sure you are actually charged the correct amount!

There was a large chalkboard outside that clearly stated sangria was $6 per glass. However, I was charged $10 and they refused to give me the advertised price because "they made a mistake." Then, they wouldn't erase the incorrect price off the chalkboard so that others wouldn't be misled! I walked by THREE DAYS later and it still said $6 for a glass of sangria.

The service is absolutely the worst I have had in Singapore, which is saying something. We ordered a beer and a sangria. They brought me my sangria, and then every single server, manager and bartender disappeared for literally 20 minutes for a "staff meeting" before bringing my husband his drink. At this point, we wanted to leave, but the server had the audacity to argue that he was served the beer, and she tried to charge us for it! So frustrating.

Go next door to Wine Connection for actual service and get the same prices for wines of better quality. Robertson Quay is full of nice restaurants with a great atmosphere. It's a shame Barraka can't get it together.

Highly recommend eating at one of the many restaurants at Robertson Quay - there is a good vibe and it is not as insanely busy as Clarke Quay. You can have a nice walk along the riverside too.
