“Amazing food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2012

So far only restaurant in Singapore my husband and I have gone back to multiple times because we have enjoyed our meals so much-- he loves the chicken couscous and I have enjoyed the baklava, lasagna, and all their amazing pastas! If you love Mediterranean food, you'll love it here + plus the plates are a good size. ++ outdoor seating is great!
Can't wait to try the salads and kebabs.

“Tapas in great surroundings”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2012

Singapore is experiencing the birth of tapas and it is catching on quickly. Esmirada is in Chijmes, which is a great setting. The prices here are reasonable and the portions are fine. The choices are pretty standard for a tapas bar, including potatas bravas et al. They do offer a loyalty scheme here and it does provide a great central, easy to find location. The staff are friendly but try and get a spot on the inside of the cloisters rather than at the back, which is much less ambient.

“Service staff needs a wake up call”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2010

Been to this restaurant many times. Food is always just all right. Never exceptional but never bad. Anyway, we went again last night. The penne arabitata was excellent. Cous cous, paella, mezza was ok. They ran out of spinach at 7pm. That is not acceptable! The wait help were not attentive and definitely not genuine. We had to pour our own wine, ask for them to take away dirty dishes, ask for them to take wipe our table, practically beg for additional drinks than wait too long before we got them. In my opinion there should be a manager or supervisor present. That would solve the problem of sloppy service. We won't be back anytime soon.
