If you buy me an air ticket, I will immediately fly off to Spain. I have always read about the Spanish culture, and I think that the whole idea of bar-hopping is brilliant. Unfortunately, we do not have that many Spanish restaurants and tapas bars in Singapore and it doesn’t make sense to cab from one end of Singapore to the other. But hey, I think it will be really cool to find a group of friends for a night of tapas-bar-hopping.
Here’s a list of Spanish Restaurants in Singapore:
82 Collyer Quay

Salt Tapas & Bar
If you are a fan of tapas, Salt Tapas Bar at Raffles City by celebrity chef Luke Mangan is one place that you should check out. It serves Aussie-style tapas with the freshest ingredients.
Many people have the perception that Salt Tapas & Bar is very expensive. This is true. Most of the tapas are in the $20 to $30 range, and you can easily spend at least $100 for a meal here. But what you might not know that it has a fantastic lunch set for just $33.50++/pax. It includes a flat bread to share, and 3 tapas per person. When you consider the fact that most of the dishes on the set lunch menu are from the ala carte menu, you will agree that it is a very good deal.

Zsofi Tapas Bar
Most people probably won’t associate Spanish Tapas with Little India, but that’s exactly where Zsofi Tapas Bar is located. The whole area may be a little sleazy, but Zsofi Tapas Bar is cosy and unpretentious, and most importantly the Spanish food is affordable.

my kingdom for a churro con chocolate or some tapas!!
Thanks for putting together this list, I really would like to try Santi´s restaurant.
oh, beautiful pictures, those churros are hunting me now!
Don’t forget to take me along when you head to Espana, my friend…
I wonder which spanish restaurant in singapore serves the best beef tripe. Brad have you tried any? Anyone else?
Oh man, which restaurant serves that amazing-looking churros that I’d happily die for? =p
I lived in Spain for 6 months and it is one of the coolest countries in the world… but the few Spaniards I know in Singapore aren’t so high on the local Spanish food. I’ve eaten at Bodega y Tapas and Zsofis – Bodega’s food is ok, but pales in comparison to the real thing
It is nice to look and for flavor!!!
Hi there, I happened to look onto ur blog one day juz looking for recommendation for a brunch. And I would come to ur blog for ideals when I wanna try some new restaurants! And today I came and I saw this!! Spanish restaurants!! Omg! If I have an air tix I would definitely fly to Spain! And for sure it’s a one way tix!
I have tried few restrant on ur list, juz to add on to ur reviews.
1. Serenity @ vivo
Tried a few tapas can’t rem wat but there nothing that leave mi a good impression and a must must for a second serving. Thumbs up for the paella! They really taste good! Each grains seem to soak up with the sweetness of the
seafood. Must try!
2. Don quijote
Try the brunch on Sunday! They have variety of tapas and if I remember correctly is unlimited serving. So u can try all u can.(if my memoy didn’t fail mi k) but be mindful tt u need to book in advance! They are usually full!! And with long waiting list.
3. My little Spanish place.
Personally I like the ambience. their paella is not the best and compare to serenity I prefer the second. Theirs are dry and not as tasty as the one in serenity. Nonetheless the sangria is good. I would go there with my partner or close friend for a dinner.
That all I have tried. I would love to try the food @ la vida they look and smell good, they should taste good too! Keeping my fingers cross!
Looking forward for ur updates on the rest and food!
Oh, I remember those churros! You will LOVE Spain. I promise you that.
My friend who is crazy abt everything spanish will be happy to read this. Thx for this write-up
I think there is a relatively new tapas place at Holland Village.
There is a new place, Nueva Cuba at Custom house.
great list. I’ve personally tried 3 of the restaurants on it and I would strongly recommend don quijote for their squid ink paella and zsofi for their tapas and affordable sangria, not to mention the super funky laidback ambience.
Serenity for paella! <3 Hi Brad, hope you've been well. Your blog always makes me sooooo hungry.
Hi, just want to share with you that there is a new tapa restaurant, Sabroso Tapas (opp Wala Wala) opened in Holland V last month. I have not tried yet. But just to share the infor with you. Heehee…
Best spanish food in town I’ve tried was in Streeters in Keong Siak. Don’t know whether they are still around. COuld never forget their garlic prawn and portobello.
The list looks enticing! As a Singaporean living in Spain, I’m quite keen on judging the authenticity of these Spanish restaurants for myself. I’ve only tried out churros at Alegro and left feeling pretty damn impressed – my Spanish partner himself was full of praises for it as well.
i’ve recently chanced upon a newly opened spanish restaurant located at tanjong katong area, Cocina De Pasion. tried their paella which is savoury & “wet” to my liking and can really taste the seafood in my mouth. another favourite is the lamb rack & sauteed mushroom in cream sauce. their items are reasonably priced and imagine paella only costs $17, one of the cheapest in the market. i tried paella from some other restaurant but i had to admit Cocina’s is still my personal best. very cosy ambience and shld grab their 1-4-1 cocktail promo now, sangria & margarita!!!
Thanks for the recommendations – would be awesome if you could add the price range (or low/medium/high etc) too!
