Best Tapas in Singapore no doubt! I had stopped trying Tapas in Singapore after several disappointments at many rated restaurants. Today, my faith in finding good Tapas in Singapore was fully restored and it was among the best I have tasted anywhere in the world.

We started with Toasted Bread with Tomatoes, Sauteed Cauliflowers with Pinenuts, and Patatas Bravas. All amazing and flavourful in their own right!! Patatas Bravas and Caulflower were truly outstanding. Alongside, my wife had a Sangria and I had an Old Fashioned. Both drinks were phenomenal and not watered down versions we come across in many restaurants.

For main course we ordered a Vegetarian Paella and it was equally outstanding. We were in a vegetarian mood today and not at all disappointed. Next time planning to try the extensive sea food and meat selection.

For dessert, we tried the Cafe Con Leche, coffee mousse with milk ice cream, meringue, chocolate crumbs, etc. It was full of incredible flavors and texture.

The service was super prompt and courteous. The servers were very knowledegeable and made excellent recommendations on all courses.

Its a must visit restaurant in Singapore and we’ll definitely be back.

Really cool restaurant, super attentive staff and a nice ambience.
Food is made to be easier to eat than regular tapas, so you don't have to scoop food out of a bowl. This is proper finger food and yummie too!
I really enjoyed the patatad bravas! The squid was a bit dull, but everything else was top! I don't think I've ever had a more crispy pork belly!
Even got a birthday cake for the birthday girl without even asking!

If you're into gin tonic you should try it cause it is amazing too!

Definitely recommend this place for food and staff!

This restaurant was right next to our hotel, The Bencoolen and we had passed it a few times so decided to give it a go for dinner on Friday night. Having read the reviews we weren’t sure if there would be space for us, but luckily there was!

We were seated at a high sharing table, although only one other couple joined us just as we were leaving so we had the whole table to ourselves despite the rest of the place being super busy.

This was by far the best tapas we have had to date! We ordered: slow cooked beef, which was melt in the mouth delicious, octopus galician style, escalivada, a mix of mushroom and chicken croquettes, gilda skewer anchovy & seabass and iberico ham. All of the dishes had a good balance of flavour and were really tasty.

Yes, it is on the expensive side, but it is also worth it! I would definitely come back again.
