Amazing food and service. Great atmosphere. Daniel, the Portuguese owner, makes you feel very welcome. Felt like we were having lunch at a friend's house. Will go back many times for sure.
Great food, amazing service, and beautiful location! Everything we ordered was fantastic. We keep coming back to Boca for special dinners, or any reason actually. Highly recommended!
A real authentic mediterranean cuisine ! Not pretentious at all and explosions of savour in our mouth! We are french and we had a blast to find family cuisine in Singapore ! We Absolutely recommend this place. Please try the clams with the white wine, the octopus starter and so many dishes...
Cosy place that sits about 20 ple yet is not noisy so you have good conversations with your friends. Went for dinner and ordered sauteed pork cheeks (highly recommended), cured codfish (suggest for sharing rather than to have this dish for 1 person) and Portuguese egg tarts! The egg tarts were more custard-y than egg-y, so it is up to one's preference. I like it but my friend didn't. Need to be a bit patient in waiting for the food, so if you are hungry suggest that you order starters or bread. Price wise, about $40-50/pax. Very friendly staff, would definitely come again!
Staff does not seemed to know what they are doing. An example - we were given new glasses when we requested them to serve our 2nd bottle of wine. That is nice but they only brought the glasses and not the wine. Our bottle of wine was only brought to us after repeated requests. More importantly, all the dishes we ordered (steak, stew, lamb, pawns, cod etc. ) were cold when it was served to us! Last but not least, it was stated on Boca's instagram that there will be a 10 pct discount for all ala carte orders on Dec. 9. The discount was not reflected on our bill and they only gave it to us when we pointed it out to them. We were looking forward to having some Portuguese food and we were pretty disappointed with the overall experience.
My 2nd visit to Boca. 1st visit was excellent because the pork cheek is just so wonderful. However was told that it was removed in my 2nd visit hence tried Clams in white sauce with additional order of sweet potato bread which were really good match. Love it as much as pork cheek. Other dishes that I ordered were not to my liking but it is more of a preference.
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
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!
We got a nice place upstairs. Good selection of starters, our choice was Salada de Polvo. Also the mains Bacalhau a bras and Espetada Madeirense were very delicious. Very good red wine from Monte de Zambujeiro. The Mousse de chocolate was a bit too sweet with some cubes of chocolate dough in it, we didn’t like so much. The staff was very friendly, good service.
