Have been a regular at Margarita's at East Coast Road for a number of years but this is my first (overdue) review of the restaurant. The portions are amazingly large and have not yet been disappointed with any dishes served so far. Try the queso fundido appetizer if you love cheese. It's a hot plate of melted cheese, onions, peppers,... More

I selected the $16 house white which was in drinkable. Asked for an alternative and was advised that this is what I selected and had too pay. $42 wasted.

Jugs of Margaritas set the scene while we caught up with friends and chose from the varied menu. All the dishes were authentic, plentiful and tasty. The waiting staff were friendly and efficient. This restaurant is a good place to socialise with friends. On the next table a family were celebrating their young daughter's birthday, so it's good for families... More

I hadn't been to Margarita's in quite a while, but it won't be long before I visit again. The food, drinks and service were all very good and my friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening there. The owner remembered me despite the fact I'd not seen her in ages. In Singapore's big and very competitive restaurant industry, that's a... More

I went to Margarita's with friends. We ordered kitchen sink burrito, beef fajitas and few other dishes including portobello mushroom. Good food! We were happy with what we ordered. Furthermore, the service was very good! They were attentive and helpful. Downside, the ambience is not that great. The restaurant is quite small and the tables are too near one another.... More

We haven't been here for several months. We always happy to take taxi from our home in the city center to here which cost us ~22S$ taxi fare. Today, we're really regrets to do so. They must have been change management /chef here. The quality of food was quite BAD compared to our old excellent experience in past few years.... More

Most important thing first: The food was quite tasty, however it comes with a price tag... For two main courses + soft drinks we payed more than 100 SGD. With drinks and / or starter / dessert you can easily reach 200 bucks for a couple. The restaurant is relatively small and they squeeze-in as many table as possible. You... More

The food was ok tasty and plenty but a little expensive for what you had. Portions were quite large but bulked up with the cheaper ingredients! We enjoyed the food, the service was average for the region but we wouldn't say it was very good value for the price paid.

Thank Karen B
