Fantastic spanish food and good quality

Boss very friendly and recommends us dishes as it is my first time trying spanish food. Luv the tenderloin beef cubes, sautee mushroom and chicken breast in creamy sauce go well with baugatte.

Worst restaurant experience ever

Loco (Spanish for crazy) is an apt description of our experience with this restaurant. We had called and confirmed a booking on Friday for lunch (12:30pm) the next day - 3 adults + 1 baby. We arrived at the restaurant for our lunch booking and found it was totally closed. Nobody was around and their phone wasn't being answered. We have never experiened a restaurant which has such disregard for their customers - even though we had a booking they "forgot" to call us to let us know they had decided not to open. Will never be returning to this place.

Tapas Buffet @ Loco Tapas

$15.90 for a All-You-Can-Eat Tapas Buffet at Loco Tapas Bar. Nice food, centralised location at such an attractive price. it is really the BEST deal ever!!

More photos and information at http://monsoontravel.blogspot.sg/2012/08/tapas-buffet-loco-tapas.html 

It was a 55% discount buffet deal to promote the newly opened Loco Tapas bar at Boat Quay, offering tantalising Spanish cuisine.

There were a few dishes that were memorable.

Grilled asparagus with bacon - Fresh asparagus couple with crispy grilled bacon with drops of flavourful oil from the bacon dripping down. Sinfully yummy!

The bacon prawns - Yes! oily bacon wrapped again. The bacon gives additional flavour to the prawn and add crisp to the dish. Equally yummy!

Marinated Salmon cold cut - free flow of marinated salmon that you can eat to your heart's content.

Chorizo is spanish pork sausage which get their distinctive smokiness and deep red colour from dried smoked red peppers.

The buffet also comes with free flow of drinks.

We end the meal with Churros, spanish doughnut. The fried dough pastry topped with cinnamon, was still pipping hot when served.

Nice alfresco setting just besides the Singapore river at Boat Quay. Even though it was a bit warm and humid for lunch, we enjoyed ourselves, indulging in nice food and enjoying the nice scenery.

Great Authentic Spanish Food

Loved spanish food, especially Paella so when I saw an All-You-Can-Eat Tapas Buffet deal that is near the office, I was ecstatic and bought several tapas lunch buffet vouchers due to upcoming birthday celebrations in June and July.

Be careful what you order coz there is so much you would want to try but beware there a $5 charge for wastage. Some items on the menu were excluded and I was disappointed that the rice version of the Paella was not included in the deal. The alternative was a pasta version of the Paella (Fideua Valenciana) which turned out to be really good.

Must tries: Caesar Salad with poached Egg, Crispy Bacon, Croutons, Freshly Shaved Parmesan Cheese in Chef’s Homemade Dressing with roasted chicken, Pan Fried Prawns Wrapped With Bacon, Grilled Asparagus wrapped with Ham, Grilled Meat Skewers Marinated with Mediterranean Herbs and Churros con Chocolate dessert.



We ordered too much food and had to cancel the Deep Fried Fish Fritters and Stuffed Mushrooms. These and many others on the menu will have to be tried on another visit. Fortunately, I had bought quite a bunch of them.



At $15.90 for tapas lunch buffet and $19.90 for tapas dinner buffet with free-flow ice lemon tea/sodas, this is the best deal in town to experience authentic spanish food!

Six&Seven reviews Loco Spanish Tapas Bar @ Boat Quay

If Alcoholic Anonymous ever decides to start a movement in Singapore, Boat Quay  would be a great place to begin. It is almost quintessential for every restaurant along there to own a liquor license. So it was no surprise that we started our meal at Loco Spanish Tapas Bar @ Boat Quay with a glass of red Sangria.

Loco  is a small quaint tapas bar that is ideal as an after work hangout if you are looking for a small bite. Like every other restaurant along Boat Quay, Loco  offers diners a nice alfresco dining ambience along the Singapore River, which is probably the only reason why the local government even constructed a river through the heart of the Business District.

One of my favourite dishes there was the Croquettes de pollo ($2.50 per piece). The croquettes were breaded nicely with the batter not too thick; the chicken-potato filling was reminiscent of a Polar  chicken pie, but with a bigger grocery budget. While it may come across a little pricey for a croquette, this dish was definitely worth the $2.50
