This Spanish tapas bar has a number of tapas dishes as well as heartier meals for those who don't want to pick at small plates. They also have sangria and a selection of Pimm's.
Gosh! Been to LaViva so many times now. The ambience is great and service is excellent! Bartender Vincent makes really good Caiphirinias and Caprioskas...Manager Eugene is always there to make sure things are OK and waiter Timothy not only looks cute but service is so very good. Their happy hours start at 3pm till 9pm and is 7 days a week. And cocktails and beers are priced at just $8!! The tapas and paellas are really good...so are their main courses...absolutely love it!! Its great for group gathering for all occassiona...not been there?? Go have a cocktail tonite!!
Mushroom in cream sauce ($12), spicy garlic beef ($13) and salad of chicken ($15) were tasty and served hot. Yes, this included the salad as the chicken was served hot.
Seafood Paella ($30) was tasty with good and generous mix of mussels (3 pieces), prawns and squid.
Creme Brulee ($9) served with chocolate ice cream was served well to end the meal.
They had 2 set tapas including desserts at $88++ for 2 persons, which I think is pretty good value if you are not getting any main course or paellas.
Dining under the stars need not be a warm affair in tropical Singapore, especially when the restaurant provides fans. Dining in the surroundings of CHIJMES is always a relaxing experience, unless its World Cup or other big sporting event when many bars in CHIJMES would then hold gatherings.
Waiting staff were generally attentive and helpful. 1 of the staff was obviously inexperienced judging from the way she served and cleared the table, but this was compensated by the more experienced staff who quickly came up to help.
Happy hour was 4-9pm for you to enjoy house pours and beers. Erdinger (500ml) cost $11 during this period.
It was a bit late one evening during the week, my Boyfriend and I wanted to quickly go out for a bite, but still somewhere nice. we walked over to Chijmes and tried out La Viva Tapas Bar. We will definitely return. The service was impeccable. We ordered and not 5 mins later, the food started to come out. I love having a little taste of everything, so this is perfect and also for a late nite meal . The Sangria is homemade too.
