From Duxton Hill to Sentosa Cove, the Sabio tapas restaurant concept comes home to the ocean with Sabio By The Sea. Concentrating on the Spanish small-plates so beloved in Singapore, Sabio also offers a menu of succulent grills and seafood – appropriate enough considering that dining here along Ocean Way offers spectacular views out over the Sentosa Marina and surrounds. Plus, Sabio’s chic, laid back atmosphere makes for a great venue when it comes to events and celebrations.
Many people make Sabio By The Sea a daytime destination when they wish to take in some luxurious marina views while they dine. For those venturing out to Sentosa Cove from Singapore City, Sabio’s Ocean Way location offers just this, with a weekday set lunch menu offering diners a great value way to sample the restaurant’s Spanish tapas, grills, and seafood dishes. Executive chef Damien Le Bihan is the maestro behind Sabio’s menu, insisting upon the use of charcoal ovens imported from Spain to prepare dishes that celebrate the sea. It’s good to know that from Monday to Friday after 5pm, it’s free to enter Sentosa by car or taxi, and that there’s free weekday lunch time parking from 12pm to 2:30pm.
The second port of call once you moor up at Sentosa Cove’s favourite Spanish grill and tapas restaurant is to order up a bottle of imported cava, white or red wine, or perhaps a Spanish Estrella Galicia beer or a classic jug of sangria – perfect for Singapore’s hot and humid days and a perfect accompaniment to Sabio By The Sea’s central offering of sublime tapas, each plate of which represents Le Bihan’s nuanced contemporary interpretation of the classics. Next browse the cold and hot tapas: stuffed baby squid in olive oil, sea scallops with a sparkling white wine sauce and, from the land, assorted Spanish queso and special aged ham from the black Iberian pig. If you come with a partner or, even better, with a group of three to four and have the time to luxuriate, Sabio’s paella is renowned, while heartier appetites will enjoy a grilled main course from the Josper oven: we recommend the grilled Maine lobster with Spanish garlic rice and aioli to the more regally indulgent seafoodies out there.
Foods are exquisite and very tasty ..I love their Tuna Steak the most .Their Brinjal dip is another favourite..Definitely will dine in again in this resto bar and try their other dishes in the menu ..They’re best in tapas!

Price was slightly on the high side but what you would expect at any Spanish restaurant worth its salt ($20 to $30 odd for tapas and big plates). The food was really good and one of the best Spanish meals I’ve had in Singapore! Great chill ambience as well alfresco dining by the marina.
The staff were very helpful and attentive. Food was good. My friends and I truly enjoyed ourselves at the premises. Our balloons floated up to the ceiling as we forgot to tie it securely to the chair and the staff actually helped us to get it down:)
