I agree Boat Quay is over priced, i have visited the same restaurants after a 10 year absence and found the quality of the food to be pretty much the same.
Both boat and Clarke Quay have now moved onto a total Tourist attraction, in doing so, something really cool about both areas has been irrevocably lost, if you never experienced these two once wonderful areas you wont know what your missing

However you should consider trying out some of the establishments along River Valley Road, especially if you are passing by in the early hours of the morning get some indian food breakfast at 3 30 am cheap and cheerful and quality

Singapore never sleeps go out late and enjoy

Typical tourist location with some locals and finance Friday night drinkers. Lovely to see the city at night, against a watery, lit backdrop. Same food sold at most vendors. Food ok, but nothing special.

Boat Quay is a great place to take a stroll in the evening and see some of Singapore's nightlife and skyline. I highly recomend you do not eat here unless you want to enjoy the river view, the food is very expensive and generally poor. Better go one or two streets away from the river front and here you will find much better value for money.

I was ripped off once and had to pay $330 for four persons. This was especially sore bacuse the night before we paid $50 in a hawker center and the food was much better there!

The newly renovated part of an old Harbour district. It has a long row of bars and restaurants, both Inside and outside. Many people, not least those who work in the adjacent Financial district, usually gather here in the evening. I went, sitting by the river, in a chinese restaurant. The view was nice but restaurants are expensive and food very average.

To go there take the MRT to Raffles Place.

It's a good experience dinning beside the Singapore River. This area is made up of restaurants that serve mainly seafood. Restaurants here usually offer 1 Free drink and 30% discount on the dishes to attract customers.

Foods are definitely pricey. Crabs are at least S$8 per 100g (a crab usually weighs 1kg and above). We ordered one with 1.3kg so it's already S$100. Fried rices are overpriced, 1 plate costs around S$18-22. Small bowl of soup costs S$8-12. A plate of veggies costs around S$18-20.

Seafood and soups are great, but not the fried rice. Veggies are average. We spent S$160 (after discount) for a dinner for 2.

If you are on a budget and not interested in a pricey dinner, it is still worth visiting this place for a nice walk in the evening.
