Customer Review

Weekday set lunch here was great! Good seats by the river and hardly any crowd in the afternoon so had a relaxed 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!

Do you long for authentic Greek food in Singapore? Say no more. Bakalaki is the perfect eastern Mediterranean fix, located just off Tiong Bahru. Begin with the tzatziki dip and a Greek salad, which is served on pita bread. We also hear that the grilled octopus, kebab, and lamb chops are excellent choices. There’s a deli on the premises if you want to buy cheese, olives, sauces, traditional sweets, or Greek wines.

Key Differentiators:

  • The outside of the restaurant has plenty of al fresco seating
  • Also serves authentic seafood specialties from the Mediterranean basin
  • Awarded as the Best Mediterranean Restaurant at the RAS Epicurean Star Award Singapore 2018 

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

The CBD food stall tucked away in a coffee shop on Nankin Row is fantastic. What’s not to like about superb food, wallet-friendly prices, and outstanding service? The flavor of the hummus is rich, earthy (just how we like it) and the falafel-filled wholemeal pita bread never disappoints.

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.

Do you fantasize about watching the sun go down over the Aegean Sea? Mykonos on the Bay is as close as you’ll get to being on a Greek party island. Take a look at the menu to discover which mezze (appetizers) you’ll want to try first. Classic Greek salads and classic charcoal-grilled dishes are also available. The graviera saganaki, which is essentially pan-fried cheese with ouzo and lemon juice, is one of our favorite dishes. It’s sinful, yet it’s also fantastic.

Key Differentiators:

  • Seaside dining experience along the stunning marina
  • 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!
