“Family Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

we were suffering from Spanish food withdrawal symptoms after a great 2 weeks of eating in Spain 3 months ago. TripAdvisor recommended FOC for Spanish food and here we are.

First the service is great and good selections of Spanish wine. However having paid 5 euros for a bottle of cava, I find the cava a bit pricey. We settled for 2 bottles of Spanish white wines and totally enjoyed it.

The highlight for us was actually the octopus. Even though it is not octopus from Spain but the taste and texture was exactly how we had tasted in Barcelona. We also had croquettes and the cheese/ham is lovely. Do try the lamb as well. perfectly done - just right medium rare.

We had 2 types of paella. I actually felt that it was better than those I have tried in Spain. I thought we had too much food to go for dessert but I can't say no to Manchego cheese! Go for the cheese.

“Nice Spanish”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

The decor was interesting with many hanging heads. The main dining room had full view of the kitchen without being fumigated.

The tapas were well presented. Flavours were nice: mushroom croquettes, scrambled eggs with potatoes, cauliflowers, scallops with soy caviar, chicken paella and ajillo prawns.

The desserts were creative too: mini chocolate burgers were made of white chocolate, and pina colada served as dessert.

Worth a repeat visit.

“Friday Yeah!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago

the main and tapas were good for sharing among 2-3 persons~ the mini chocolate burger is so cute and sweet~ the bun is actually vanilla ice cream~ also I got to say the ambience is spot. the dim light, upbeat music and placement of decor was inviting~

“Restaurant Thrives In spite of it being a little out of the way”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Singaporeans are known to go out of their way to eat at the best eating places and this is another example although it's Spanish food that they serve and not food of the local variety. This little eatery is on one of the streets perpendicularly across the road from Central @Clarke Quay Mall. The food and service was great so we were not surprised this restaurant does well although it's not exactly on the riverside at Clarke Quay. Reservations is a must. We sent on a Thursday night and they were full all the way till after 9pm.

We had the toasted bread with tomatoes, prawns in Ajillo Sauce and 2 "chef specials" on the board - the suckling pig paella and oxtail and for dessert the Spanish french toast and the dessert on the board (can't remember the name). All the good was great except the prawns was a little bit of a let down in comparison with the others.
