La Pepa is a wonderfully elegant Spanish restaurant serving some of the best tapas we know of in Singapore. It’s one of those restaurants where the food looks as good as it tastes – and that’s damn good, believe us – and the focus of the menu is very much quality over quantity. On Gemmill Lane, not far at all from Telok Ayer MRT or from Chinatown, La Pepa is a wise choice for any casual occasion. Eat, drink and, most importantly, share a real taste of Spain. It’s quite a new restaurant and hence it’s popular – best to reserve a table in advance.
As said, sharing is arguably the best part about tapas, particularly when it’s Spanish tapas as good as that at La Pepa. With that in mind, head to this stylish Singapore spot on Gemmill Lane with your friends and family and order up as many small plates as your table can fit, along with some carefully-selected wine, of course. After that, savour every mouthful as the warm, and quite rustic buzz of La Pepa makes you feel all nice and fuzzy inside. For us, it’s certainly one of the best ways to spend an evening in Telok Ayer.
From the menu you can expect Spanish dishes in all shapes and sizes, from wholesome roasted chicken through to refined seafood dishes and vibrant Spanish salads complete with prime meats. In fact, one little nibble we’re particularly fond of is the toasta la pepa consisting of cured Spanish anchovies sitting atop marinated piquillo peppers, delicate eggplant and sourdough toast. Irrespective of what you order, however, Telok Ayer’s La Pepa will put a wide smile on the face of every Spanish food lover in Singapore.
Food was great, ambience was great too. Restaurant was not too crowded. Portion of food was a little small thou. Overall it was a nice experience!
very nice food and good service! looking forward to go again and enjoy some nice tapas. specially the croquetas and the patatas bravas ! !
Had a wonderful meal here! usually I stay away from tapas because many tapas restaurants in Singapore are overpriced and subquality food. LA Pepa changed my mind on that! Food was tasty, service on point and best of all Wallet friendly.
The dishes and the service were great. It was quiet st the restaurant lady so we had the place almost all to ourselves. We enjoyed the visit and will definitely go back again.
The service at La Pepa was on point. Staff did not rush me to order food even though I waited 30 mins for my date. Staff also made good reccomendations on the food. Try the bruschetta with tomato and Parma ham (not sure of the exact name) and the paella. But maybe skip the mussels. Staff was also attentive - topped up our water everytime it was half empty. Quiet and cozy ambience. Good for date nights!
Good value matched by great service. When recommended dessert was ordered and subsequently out of stock, staff offered it complimentary when we return. Wines were competitively priced and ask for promotions with Tapas pairing (time limited)
Food is rather decent and service crew is friendly and attentive. Somehow, the Spanish Tortilla tasted more like preserved radish omelette (chai poh egg)... The Nebla Tinto Vicente Gandia 2014, Ribera del Duero red wine was very good!
Food and service were good. I personally like the Squid ink paella, Jamon croquetas and iberico Bellota Jamon. I would recommend anyone that likes tapas to try out this place.
Good food. Reasonably price. Friendly staff. Had the paella which was good. The desert was also delicious. The tapas some were good. The omelette dish was so so.
Lovely food. Small intimate restaurant. Attentive, friendly staff. Perfect spot for a quiet dinner or catch up with friends. Close to Club Street but away from the crowds
