Great service, awesome authentic Portuguese food! Would love to come back again:) Portuguese egg tart it's a must to order, it melts in your mouth!
Nice food, quiet 2nd floor for nice and cosy gathering with friends. Would like to try out other dishes, drinks and desserts for future visits.
Overall super-attentive staff (Danesh is his name) and of the owner (Daniel Alvies) came by our table a few times to chat up with us. Food was awesome !!! (Clients and bosses were thrilled) - my 1st time here however I have Portuguese clients with me hence it was smooth. A definite RETURN to BOCA on my own leisure dinner/lunch.
My wife and I had a very nice dinner at Boca. The serving staff was attentive, helpful and knowledgeable of the food. Her recommendation was spot on. Highly recommended!
I was being told by my partner that the food they serves are authentic and made him feel like home. The food is too salty for my taste but that's Portuguese food the dish is packed with tastes and a bit heavy... make sure you come hungry. If you are planning to go out after dinner I suggest that you order a few starters rather than going all the way for 3 course meal. The fish fritters is amazing, I love the octopus rice and you need to complete the experience with a glass of vino verde a mild sparkling white wine. Refreshing ~ Enjoy
Great food and wine. Lovely decor. Really attentive waitress/bar staff who made my little boy a fresh lemonade when he said he was a bit worried Sprite was unhealthy - we told him not to be fussy but she listened to him. Impressive. The Portuguese tarts were to die for.....perfect.
The food is very tasty and authentic. The service is quite attentive except for that stinky cloth with a stench, which they used to wipe our table. The seafood is fresh and tender in those casseroles with fantastic soup stock and rice.
really a pearl in Singapore's F&B world! Great food, great ambience and the staff is excellent!! Also teh suggested wine was very good... and the egg tart.... amazing!!! Well done guys!!
Cosy environment; food is uniquely different and interestingly flavorful. Had lunch so could not accompany food with wine. Waiter is very friendly. All the dishes we ordered were enjoyed.
Quiet ambience, prompt service , friendly staff. Good for business lunch . If they have a more wallet friendly lunch set , would consider returning again
