Zorba The Greek Taverna is a relatively new restaurant at Clarke Quay, having opened in late 2019. This Greek restaurant is located along the Singapore River, near the Liang Court mall. With the current virus concerns we thought that the open air restaurant was a suitable place for an early dinner.
Zorba The Greek Taverna is located in the stretch of eateries along the river that are sheltered by the cute pods. The scenic river side location and the blue and white theme really suits the type of restaurant. Only outside (non-airconditioned) seating is available. Which may be why Zorba only opens for dinner.
We were told that the Zorba Greek restaurant is opened by the 1-Group which operates quite a number of dining concepts such as the 1-Altitude Rooftop Bar and Mimi. The latter is also in Clarke Quay, right across the pedestrian walkway from Zorba. We think they share some common kitchen facilities as we see food being brought from the direction of Mimi.

Here are pictures of the Zorba The Greek Taverna menu and a page from the drinks list.
We tried some of our Greek food favorites at Zorba the Greek that day starting with a Greek mousakka ($22). It was a decent mousakka but not among the best we have tried in Singapore.
Our other two dishes were seafood items. The kalamari ($18) was the best dish of the day with thick juicy pieces of squid and a light layer of batter. The grilled sea bream ($32) was smaller than we had expected. We thought it was a nicely grilled fish but a more pronounced Greek character with added herbs and flavors would have made it better.
Overall, the best part of our dinner at Zorba The Greek Taverna in Clarke Quay was the location. The view of the Singapore River and the boats make a great back drop for dinner. It was a weekday and we had the place all to ourselves, so there was no concern over social distancing.
