We have come to this place whenever we visit Clark Quay. Sad to say the quality and service have dropped greatly. this is not at best a mediocre tapas restaurant. The staff are not attentive or engaging forgetting orders. The sangria was color and flavor water. Lastly the price is definitely gone up from our last visit. I will not... More

Visited here last nice and really enjoyed good food and good service. We had Spanish ommlette, stuffed mushrooms, patas bravas and tomato bread. All the food was delicious and the service was also good. There was some entertainment playing inside which was also reasonable. Would definitely visit here again if in Singapore. Good location.

Went for work function and we booked a large outdoor section for our group. It was a buffet style arrangement with a limited selection, largely not really tapas. Most of the dishes were average to say the least. The service was good though and the staff really looked after us. Would suggest to try somewhere else!

Very disappointing. Poor front of house staff. No real engagement, dropping plates on the table rather than serving our food. Not good enough, the two guys who covered our table really need to be retrained and taught the basics in customer service. Until they improve I would give this place a miss. There is plenty of choice in Clarke's Quay

Staff were friendly but the speed of service was rubbish; so slow. Excellent choice of dishes to choose from, but all came out in dribs and drabs. The bread arrived ten minutes after everything else. Probvably better to go in the evening rather than lunctime

Had heard there were a lot of places to eat at Clarke Quay so took a taxi from my hotel. It was a beautiful warm dry evening and this restaurant had tables next to the river. There were 5 in my group and we ended up ordering 6 tapas dishes, all delicious. One of my group was gluten intolerant but... More

I love good tapas, made with love. This is not the place to have those. It is possible this place is more for drinks. We chose 5-6 different tapas for a lunch, and of all the meals during 4 days in Singapore, this was the last in our list. No heart in it. Overcooked or prepared too early/quickly. And expensive,...

My first visit at Octapas was 2 years back and I had a warm reception by the staff and the food was great! My family visiting from Australia loved the food and the band. Two years later on my second visit, I tried new dishes they had added in their menu. Even my 2 year old loved the food! The... More
