Serenity Spanish Bar & Restaurant you will find the most authentic Spanish flavours and culture with a feature of Spanish live music and flamenco dance.
Went there last thursday with a group of friends after work. We ordered the sauteed prawns with garlic, potato bravas, dates with bacon, mushroom with garlic, fried baby squids, salad and a small paella to share.
The prawns with garlic was good, very aromatic and fresh. The potatos are roasted potatos with tomato salsa like sauce. The dates with bacon were very good, salty and sweet at the same time, but very oily. Mushroom is the same style as the prawns. The squid was deep fried and serve with mayo, commonly found in any restaurant, whereby the salad was just basic mix greens with balsamic vinegar sauce. The paella was ok, not too bad.
We ordered 2 sangrias, soft drinks and beer.
The food and service was ok. But a bit on the pricey side. But the view overlooking the water to sentosa was beautiful!
Will come back, only for special occasions.
I shall not go into details about the concept - authentic Spanish fare in a serene, Mediterranean setting and polite staff. Lots of artifacts line the inside of the restaurant, and there is a huge alfresco area for those who prefer Sentosa's sea view.
The Paella Valenciana (SGD$53.00), serves 3-4 pax, and requires cooking time of about 30 - 45 minutes - is made up of saffron, chicken, chorizo, tiger prawns, squids, mussels and bomba rice. It was aromatic with saffon's distinctive spicy pierce, and rather tasty of crustacean goodness - I would've preferred it more crispy and dry in texture.
Next, the star of the night, which we had to order at least a day in advance with 50% paid deposit - the Chonchinillo Asado (SGD$338.00) aka Suckling Pig - we ordered the whole pig and it could be shared between 6-8 persons. The crispy suckling pig came with roast potatoes on the side, as well as 3 types of sauces. Having been marinated with sherry wine, white wine, herbs and vinegar and slowly roasted for 6 hours, the suckling pig was tender on the inside and fragrant with infusion of wine and herbs into its flesh. The skin was so crackling good that it was being sliced through using merely a plate
Finally, homemade Spanish Churros (SGD$10.80) served with hot chocolate. Instead of being light and crispy, this one was doughy and somewhat too solid for our liking.

If you are looking for a nice place with good view with good live band with delicious food and drinks, this is the place to be. Its located in vivo city just beside the pathway by the sea view. They have live band and twice that I was there, I enjoyed their food and environment. Price is on the slightly pricy range. However, this is a good place to have gathering with friends. Any of the dishes are nice. After dinner, you and your friends can seat back and relax, have drink (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) and chat. The live band can be a little loud and hence, if you want to chat, you will need to request to seat further away.
