nice restaurant to visit, a bit pricey for high tea but lot of variety. 2 hours of complimentary parking free make it value added.

Food was forgettable, nothing to shout about and in fact, some dishes were cold and bland. Ambience however was lovely with nice oriental touches.

Liked the buffet selection but wished there was more choices for Peranakan food. The durian mousse was good though. Service was good and friendly.

We were having breakfast at this place on the 19th of February 2017. The spread was okay. Nothing special. Couldn't complain even its very standard. However, the service was far from standard. The waitresses not competent to do something (which supposedly standard, like taking the dirty plates out of the table) unless we insist and they seemed to try to... More

Went to Ellenborough Market Café for dinner yesterday, my 8th visit and I would still rate them very good. Wide range of food for both warm and cold dishes. If you are new to Peranakan food, this restaurant will be a good start as you can try a little bit of everything and work out the dishes that suits your... More

I was going to give this place a 5 star review, but after today's experience, I would rate this place as mediocre. Most of the food is great though. This is a good place to go to if you want a taste of the hybridised culture of Singapore. The cuisine focuses on local delicacies and Peranakan food, while including a... More

We had dinner there while we were staying at the hotel. The buffet had sashimi, prawns and bugs and other typical buffet food. There was also a selection of local and Malay-Chinese food. Some of the meat was overcooked but most of the food were fresh and pretty good. Nothing really stood out as impressively fantastic, but a decent family... More

Staying in The Quays

Neighbourhood Profile
The Quays
From Marina Bay, a walk along Singapore River will take you through the three Quays of the city, each offering a very different atmosphere. Boat Quay features historical sites and a buzzing riverfront vibe. Clarke Quay caters to the party crowd, while Robertson Quay appeals to the leisurely wanderer. Weekends at Robertson Quay and Martin Road also give a peek into the lives of expats in Singapore, as the riverfront teems with joggers, dog walkers, and those getting their caffeine fix over brunch or enjoying a burger and a beer. No matter what you’re up for, the three Quays have something to keep you happy, day or night.
