Customer Review

Weekday set lunch here was great! Good seats by the river and hardly any crowd in the afternoon so had a relaxed Mediterranean dining experience. Choice of a moussaka or a chicken bowl as the main were both good, though the chicken was a little dry. Baklava as dessert was delicious! Our server Simone was very friendly and attentive. Overall recommend Zorba!

Customer Review

Best octopus I tried in Greek restaurants. Even my hubby who don’t like octopus, was impressed. Skewers perfectly grilled, goes so well with the house white. House white reasonable priced. Sudden downpour when we were here, so might as well get a second carafe. No regrets. End the meal with baklava and the Greek donuts, first try for both and I love it!

Already booked my next visit! Thanks for the shots on the house, made the experience a notch better than it already was.

Customer Review

very busy but service was efficient and friendly. food is very good if you know what dishes to pick.

my colleague found the blue cheese burger very normal, so perhaps avoid that. the grilled meat platter and fried calamari was pretty good in taste and portions for the price.

The grilled chicken and pita dips were the standout dishes for me, definitely returning for a 2nd round to try other menu items

The food at this place is surprisingly authentic- tastes are comparable to the food found in the Mediterranean region and Mideast. Had the salad plate with sesame bread and the grilled eggplant and chicken. The hummus was really good. The freshly baked sesame bread was a delight. The staff service was friendly and attentive.

Mykonos on the Bay is as Greek party island as you’re going to get. See what you want to try first on the menu of mezze (appetisers).

Also, there are standard Caesar and Greek salads and standard charcoal-grilled things.

The graviera saganaki (basically, pan‑fried feta cheese with ouzo and lemon juice) is one of the best things going on here. It’s so good.

  • Greek taverna overlooking a picturesque quay in Sentosa Cove
  • Open-kitchen restaurant with bar counter

Customer Review

I LOVE the food ~ every dish was very satisfying and well presented like a piece of art. Hummus is so smooth & creamy. It goes so well with the pita bread that was served warm. Seafood were fresh. Service was great too; the staff were friendly, patient and attentive (they changed my plates twice as they noticed it was piling up with mussels shell etc lol). Looking over the yachts during the evening is an added bonus. I would love to come back again!
