About La Tapería
Serving up sizzling small plates and delectable multi-course meals, La Tapería has firmly established itself as one of Singapore’s premium Spanish restaurants and most popular tapas bars. Blending casual and classy, this eatery in Orchard (in Shaw Centre on Scotts Road) leaves no stone unturned in their mission to deliver an authentic Spanish experience – from the decor to the wine, the ambience to the service, with amazing food the climax of it all.

Shaw Centre on Scotts Road is hiding a little treat from Spanish food lovers. You won’t stroll in off the street like you’d come across a rickety bar in Catalonia, but everything else about La Tapería in Orchard lines up with the experience you could expect from Barcelona’s celebrated eateries. Of course there is wine – plenty of it, from fine vintages to fresh sangria – to keep the conversation flowing in La Tapería’s elegant dining area or sunny outdoor balcony. The decor is trendy but traditional, adorned with paintings of Spanish dancers and moody lighting, but of course – as with any decent tapas bar in Singapore – the proof of the paella is in the eating.
Ay, caramba! The food really kicks La Tapería up into the pantheon of Singapore tapas joints. This should come as no surprise, given La Tapería is the brainchild of the award-winning Les Amis Group, so you can be sure that the Spanish croquetas and crispy calamari nibbled between friends here are the tastiest bar plates in Orchard. The main menu or brilliant 3-course set lunch then put on a real show. From gazpacho to blood sausage, ham and melon to seafood and saffron paella – not to mention the most addictive churros around – La Tapería has made Scotts Road the place to head to experience Spanish cuisine at its best.
Lunch experience - We ordered their octopus leg, burrata and lamb shank. All tasted fantastic! Service is excellent. Highly recommended to have your meal here with them.
This is my 1st time there and I thoroughly enjoyed the food and good service there. The Gambas, Burata cheese, Ribeye de Wagyu and a few other dishes which ee ordered were really good. Will be back soon!
Yummy food, friendly staff! The lamb & beef is so tender & juicy, as always! The whole team is pleasant, we were well taken care of during the dinner!
Food are of high quality and is located in a quiet place. I love the pork shoulder most. This place is strongly recommended with a budget of 40pax
I had an excellent lunch recently with a friend at La Taperia. We picked four items from the la carte menu as we wanted only tapas for lunch. We ordered a tomato salad ( lovely), seafood croquette ( so so I feel) , squid coated in crispy squid ink infused batter ( interesting and quite delicious), sizzling prawns ( very large sized prawns and fairly fresh), all eaten with some toasted bread. The portions were a big too much for the two of us but the dishes were fairly well done. I am impressed with the fact that they paced each dish so that the next dish is served only when we are done with the prior dish. We were well taken care of by a very helpful gentleman ( probably the manager) and his service staff. A very pleasant lunch indeed!
Astounding and warm service. The meal started perfectly when we walked in and the table with 2 baby high chairs were already prepared and in the small alcove. For the rest of the meal, or main server was warm, friendly and very jovial. The food? Top notch. The crustal bread was a little soggy compared to our last visit, but refreshing and an excellent opener. The calamari and the rockfish fritters were yummy crunchy saltiness. The braised beef amazing as usual. The only disappointment was the roast pork, which was quite dry and very porky. Save space for dessert. The chocolate mousse (I forget the name) and the catalan pudding were to die for. Reasonably priced for awesome food, a convivial atmosphere and wonderful service makes this a great place for a weekend family meal or a quiet lunch for 2, both of which I had here. Make a reservation!
The meal was excellent and the service as well. We were only two people so ordered only one hot Tapas that was quite delicious - squid in jambon. Main course was seafood Paella and my companion had a fish stew. Both were very tasty. We started off with two cocktails - they were ok but nothing special. The bloody mary was a bit under spiced for my taste. With the meal had two glasses of 'house' white wine, which was also good. Dessert was some kind of mango brulee and delicious. Altogether, a very pleasant dining experience and for all we ate and drank not too pricey.
The food was good, well-priced, arrived promptly. The service was attentive, careful, friendly. Portion size was good for 1 or 2. Will definitely go again, and will try out the lunch specials which seem like a terrific value-for-money! We were a bit unlucky though. A large group sat in the "private" area next to us, but as it didn't have walls, we were overwhelmed by the noisy merrymaking which gradually became louder as the effects of alcohol settled in. Without that large group, the atmosphere would've been quiet, cozy and intimate enough for me and my wife.
My husband and I love Tapas and this was not just delicious, it was cozy and the staff was attentive. Best Froie Gras in a Tapa ever. It should be their signature dish. We enjoyed our romantic evening with a Spanish accent thanks to La Taperia!
We turned up 20 minutes earlier for our reservation and the restaurant still accommodated us. Unfortunately the first table/seats assigned to us is so close to the serving window that we were afraid my husband's long arms will eventually knock over any waiter with hot food. Being >1.8m, he had to "origami" his long legs... LOL. We expected better seats since we did the reservation more than a week in advanced and it is his birthday celebration after all. I guess the restaurant really wanted to please the larger crowd instead of couples (looking at its layout). The staff did eventually manage to find us a new table outdoor, thankfully it was a windy night. The food although slow to serve, is wonderful; especially the paella. Skip the desserts - we think it's ordinary at best.
