To start, I really can not give any place I have found outside of North America a 5 rating for Tex/Mex...there is a gap. However, this is the best I have found in Singapore, or really the region. Food is delicious. Traditional fare such as quesadillas, nachos, enchiladas, etc whilst somewhat basic dishes are well prepared and come with a... More

Superb location, great staff but the food...so disappointed by the nachos "swimming" in all ingredients...and if these are tacos...not a taste of Mexico for me, sorry.

Many delicious dishes tried on our first visit. Service was good. We dined al fresco - a little warm & crowded on a Sunday night. Noisy too - a group of drunk guys was singing loudly.

We were there to celebrate my mum's birthday, cos she'd had a craving for mexican food, more specifically chimichangas which isn't common nowadays. We ordered 2 appetisers - the tiger prawn quesadillas and taco salad, as well as 4 main courses - 2 steak chimichangas, 1 pork soft taco and 1 steak. It was quite a lot of food for... More

I love fish tacos and this restaurant did 3 giant ones. Maybe I was not as hungry as I thought as I could only eat one. Maybe it was the complimentary nachos and delicious salsa that did me in. My spouse had the chicken fajitas and could only eat half. So very generous servings but average tasting. The restaurant is... More

I'm Californian born and raised. We have a fair number of authentic Mexican restaurants around so I think I know Mexican food. This place is more Tex-Mex than anything but given you're so far from Mexico they don't do a horrible job. The tortillas however are more like thin Nan. maybe it's the humidity?

The diner at Iguana was very nice. The meals were very tasteful and the beers and margarita were very good as well. You sit beside the river which is nice.

Love this place. Always visit while in Singapore. Good food, especially the burritos, and good beer from up the road at Brewworks.

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.
