Friendly atmosphere and service. Had lunch rather than visiting in busy after six time. Generous serves for tapas. May be different in busy times.

The food was average, service was average but most of all you couldn't get fresh bread to soak up the sauces. They wanted to give us grill baguettes slices. The only reason for this is they are using stale bread. Give it a miss.

Tapas are average, paella could be better. Generous ingredients within however, good for 2-3 persons. Live band starts at 9.30pm which is probably the attraction. Wine was ok, decently priced. Service could be better, was difficult to get someone to serve you, and they do not even refill your water.

Good place to sit and relax while in Singapore. Foods are good ( not so great ) and staff are very attentive. Overall good experience. Prices seem high but it is quite common for all outlets in Clarke Quay.

A couple of olives and some fatty salami,... More

Good food, good service for Singapore! Great location! A good place to take colleagues that doesn't break the works budget and has food to suit everyone's taste. It also won't embarrass you with poor service like many other places do. It gives colleagues an opportunity to see more of partying singapore if they wish.

We enjoyed the service and the food. We ordered the meat Paella for two, the batata brava, and the garlic mushrooms. Very reasonable prices consider the most tourist area in Singapore.

Food was quite tasty and location is nice. Service was slightly odd, since there were no Spaniards anywhere - trying to have the people understand that I would order little and often was a struggle! That being said it was a pleasant evening.

Love the share plates. Everything was very tasty. There is outdoor seating right at the river edge as well as indoor seating. We were there at lunch during the week so it wasn't crowded. It would be fun to experience in the evening as they have a live band. Great location at Clarke Quay

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.
