Best Spanish Restaurants in Singapore that we have tried

Esquina Spanish Restaurant Singapore

Some years back, the choices of Spanish restaurants in Singapore were quite limited.  Things have changed in recent times with more dining options for Spanish cuisine opening up in Singapore. Here is our list of the best Spanish restaurants in Singapore that we have tried.

Seafood Paella at Pim Pam FOC

Botanico

Botanico at the Garage opened in Singapore Botanic Gardens in early 2017 with Chef Antonio at the helm.  He had worked in world-renowned kitchens – including that of the late 3-Michelin-starred Chef Santi Santamaria and the Roca brothers of El Celler de Can Roca. Botanico serves the creative, modern Spanish style of cooking that have enabled their restaurants to win world best restaurant titles. You can read our lunch at Botanico here and our experience at El Cellar de Can Roca here.

This Spanish restaurant in the Dempsey Hill dining enclave is named after Don Quijote, the chivalric main character in a fictional Spanish novel.

Serenity Spanish Bar & Restaurant

Serenity is probably the largest restaurant on this list of best Spanish restaurants in Singapore. It is on the ground floor of Vivo City, facing the sea towards Sentosa Island.  There is a spacious air-conditioned space, but the patio in the evening is the place to be. With the view of the sea and boats in front, this is the closest thing to dining at Port Vell in Barcelona.  Read our review here.
