On our last day in Singapore we decided to visit Clarke Quay. As we knew that was a party place mostly in night hours, but we didn't expect it will be so quite at 2.30-3 p.m.! We were hungry, but still managed to find an opened restaurant. It was not easy. One of them (out of 2) was Octapas. Need... More

Then again, good luck finding a place in Clark Quay which is none of the abovet... It is one of a dozen places to start the evening, the staff were nice, but other than that no lasting memories.

Can't remember much about the food, other than it was pretty average. The table overlooked the Singapore river, and there weren't many people there. The service was good. Had better experiences at other restaurants in the area.

Went for drinks with a group of friends. Had 2-3 rounds here before going on to eat elsewhere. Sitting outside chatting and enjoying the atmosphere. Staff quick to check if we wanted top-ups. Good start to the evening.

Octapas was a nice restaurant, next to the river. Live music at night , it's great there. Food was good , drink was nice. A little bit pricey but you know Singapore anyway. I sat by the riverside, nice view.

the food was strictly passable. iberico ham was flavourless and the portions were miserly. paella was decent. the crowning disappointment was being charged S$60 for a bottle of wine when in the actual order was for 2 glasses = S$30. that said the ambience is decent - typical Clarke quay! and the staff is friendly and service prompt!

We had 4 plates of tapas, a beer and tap water. The flavor was almost nonexistent and we really like Spanish food. We paid around £56 which was expensive for what we had. Not recommendable at all.

really enjoyed the whitebait and beef tenderloin cubes recommended by the manager, Ghaz.They have indoor area for some who enjoy great music and dancing, not forgetting the outdoor area if you are looking for a place to just chill by the singapore river. Friendly staffs too!

Thank sarahhwne
