Who would’ve ever thought that some of Singapore’s best Tex-Mex dishes could be found on a boat? It’s true! Found on the main deck of Stewords Riverboat, located at Marina South Pier on Marina Coastal Drive, Santa Fe Tex-Mex Grill serves up fresh and authentic quesadillas, chimichangas, nachos, fajitas and American-style steaks – on a paddle steamer . It doesn’t get much better than that. Come see what it’s all about every day of the week from 12pm to 3pm for lunch, or 6pm to 10pm for dinner.
Back in 1999, Santa Fe Tex-Mex Grill opened up its doors in Singapore, long before Tex-Mex became the food of choice for hungry students and late-night partygoers. With over a decade behind it, Santa Fe has established itself as one of the leaders in the city’s Tex-Mex dining scene, and today it can be found serving up the same great cuisine on Stewords Riverboat, Singapore’s very own floating F&B and lifestyle venue . Found at Marina South Pier down Marina Coastal Drive, the restaurant offers an experience unlike any other in Singapore . Heating up Stewords Riverboat with an impressive offering of Tex-Mex favourites, American classics and traditional Mexican dishes, Santa Fe Tex-Mex Grill is beloved by foodies from all over town. We’re talking sticky baby-back ribs, massive steaks, sizzling fajitas and, best of all, chimichangas. Yes, Santa Fe at Marina South Pier serves chimichangas, and if you’ve never eaten one before, it’s time to get on it. Imagine an array of vegetables, gooey cheese, fluffy rice, and grilled meats all rolled up tightly in a big tortilla and deep fried – that’s a chimichanga. There’s plenty more where that came from at Santa Fe Tex-Mex Grill. Did we mention it’s on a Mississippi steam boat? Be sure to reserve in advance.
Staff were friendly and food was good. Unique experience for both me and my family. But not recommended for those with motion sickness because boat was rocking.
Good food & good ambience! I enjoy it with my girlfriends!
Nice and romantic place to bring your date to. Friendly staffs. Pleasant time spent. Dessert is a must trt over there. Will go there again next time.
Nice place with nice ambience. A good place to go for celebrations. A little issue is the shaking as it’s a floating boat.
*Lovely setting and experience, aside from the heavy boat traffic/ tide rise that caused a fair bit of swaying. One of my friends was feeling a little seasick. *The TexMex promo sampling at $5/- for a variety of items was a great way to sample the foods. I'd say this new menu they're offering is pretty good fare ~ Their tomato salsa was made with fresh tomatoes...yummz! *However, the Santa Fe Salad was a tad disappointing. We asked no to include beans in it, which sadly ended up with only lettuce and tortilla strips tossed with way too much dressing @ $14/-! That was way too pricey for the portion size and for the lack of ingredients in it! :(( *Sangria was well concocted by Shamin who greeted and served us! : )) Thank you for a lovely evening.
I think there needs to be a bit more urgency overall. We came a bit early to the restaurant and had to wait outside the ship even though they saw us waiting outside in the heat. After ordering, everyones food came like 20 mins after my Tex Mex Chicken came, I was practically eating alone. The staff has not much experience in this type of restaurant or food. You also say its Mexican food or theme... not so in the looks and taste. My wife's steak was tough and so plain, so was my son's pork chop, very uninteresting. On top of this the rocking of the ship is very disturbing. Sorry, but I will eat there again. I can bear the rocking but the rest sorry.
Staff were really friendly and helpful! Brought my girlfriend there but she got seasick due to the movement of the boat unfortunately. However, the waitress provided us some motion sickness pills and also helped to pack the food we ordered for takeaway instead. We ordered honey glazed BBQ baby back ribs which tasted really good! However the turkey quesadillas were so-so and I wasn't a fan of the sauce they used. Would definitely visit again if my gf didn't get sick haha
The staff is very helpful and friendly. My friend felt nausea. One staff offered a ginger pill and to set up a table on the berth! But we didn't take up that offer as the petroleum smell also affected her. Another staff packed the food with full set of cutlery for her. So impressed by their service! All the star dishes are delicious. My friends and I love their sauces too. Nice ambient interior. Will visit again.
The whole experience was very pleasing. The food was delicious, all those options took us forever to make a decision! The deco was well done. The only thing it lacked were people. I guess being very isolated doesn't make it easy for people to stop by for dinner but we were the only ones there. Then again, it wouldve made a decent date night easy for communication and more definitely more private! It would be amazing to see such an amazing restaurant have customers that would travel the distance regularly.
I have booked for a dinner session at the Restaurant on 14 February 2017. The quality of the food was good but the part on how the food was served should be reviewed. The initial start of the dinner was ok where the first dish was served timely. Subsequently came the second dish. After that, the issue surfaced. My partner and me waited for more than 40 minutes for the next dish to be served. In between, we got the staff coming to us on 2 occasions with the second dish again when we already ate it. I needed to go over to the Manager to check on the status of the third dish and also with the staff passing by. After awhile, finally we got served the dish. Next, we needed to wait awhile more and some reminder given to the staff at the counter as usual before we got our main course being served. A proper system needs to be put in place for staff to take stock on what has already been served and to better control the timing of the next dish to be served. I hope that the Management of the Restaurant can look into the matter and improve. The environment was really nice but the service standards did casted a shadow over the entire experience.
