We were treated very well and had a good time. The manager Janine has read all our wishes from the eyes and is simply a funny and very friendly person.

We just tried our luck here. The antipasti were good, the ribs were a treat. Fantastic! The seasoning of the ribs was sensational. We share the large rack and this was together with the antipasti a full meal. Smoking is allowed if you sit at the waterfront. The waitresses provided great services with a smile

Food was very average, we had a selection from the starters between a large group. Calamari really wasn't good, too much batter / bread crumbs!! Patas Bravas were good Great service and good music Overall we had a great night, but reviewing food hence the 3 star

I was a little skeptical if good food indeed exists in a pub. But I was wrong. Here's my rating: Free Wifi: Yes. Strong Service: Excellent Food: Way better than I expected. My sister & I ordered the chicken fajitas & their signature baby back ribs for dinner. Chicken Fajitas: The tender chicken came on a hot place. Sizzling &... More

Not that I have anything against the food at Charlie's, no. On the contrary, we enjoyed our food the night we had dinner here. My husband had Angus steak and I opted for the Norwegian Salmon for our mains and we thought they were well-prepared and the portion, more than sufficient. We also had salad and mushroom soup and they... More

Nice view an had seat next to river. I had lamb which was meant to be a rack but was actually 3 chops. Very fatty. Other diner had salmon which was passable. Expensive for ordinary food and experience.

The ambience of the place was good and by the Boat quay river. Very relaxing while enjoying the good view on TOP of the delicious food. We had the truffle fries, croquette, chorizo, nachos beef, black Angus beef and chicken burger. All was good especially the beef was prepared so well. Will visit again

We ordered the baby back ribs and beef fajita. The beef was incredibly tough and consequently very difficult to eat. The ribs were only marginally better. In addition, the beef did not taste good. The ribs tasted alright, but still too tough.

Mid-week, you're really hungry and you dont want to head home before eating something. Charlie's has generous main course portions that makes every dollar worth. The quality of meat isnt quite Burnt Ends/Bedrock standard but for the value, it makes this place good. Excellent service staff and they served all 6 main courses at the SAME TIME! (a rarity in...

We ordered a few tapas to start-one of the Portuguese sausages, the crostini with Serrano ham and feta and the tandoori chicken quesadilla. We then ordered rack of lamb and were thankful they were out of lamb because after eating our appetizers we wanted to eat somewhere else. The tandoori chicken quesadilla had so much potential but didn't really have... More

Staying in The Quays

Neighbourhood Profile
The Quays
From Marina Bay, a walk along Singapore River will take you through the three Quays of the city, each offering a very different atmosphere. Boat Quay features historical sites and a buzzing riverfront vibe. Clarke Quay caters to the party crowd, while Robertson Quay appeals to the leisurely wanderer. Weekends at Robertson Quay and Martin Road also give a peek into the lives of expats in Singapore, as the riverfront teems with joggers, dog walkers, and those getting their caffeine fix over brunch or enjoying a burger and a beer. No matter what you’re up for, the three Quays have something to keep you happy, day or night.
