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.
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.
I love their food, their drinks and as well as their service provided by the staff. Good ambience to dine in. Will be back soon again.
Always loved Santa Fe tex-mex grill! The food especially the baby back ribs are to die for... the only thing is that it can get a little rocky.. so if you don’t have motion sickness... you can definitely put this as one of the go to spot!
I celebrated my birthday here with my husbnad last Thursday and I chose it because it's one of the restaurants quandoo recommended. Boy I didn't regret it. The food is superb and the service is great, Arwen is very attentive amd friendly. My husband and I ordered buffalo wings, spicy chicken quesadillas, flamin bourbon ribs and Louisiana-style ribs. Part of the unique experience is to dine in an anchored boat feeling the waves, but I felt nauseaus for awhile (i've got motion sickness). The ambience is also good- the ship interior and dimlights and a nice piano acoustic as your background music.
*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.
The food was great but the service was a little let down. Our first visit, a year ago, was really memorable so we decided to have a birthday celebration there again this year. During our dinner, more diners came in and we were told there were some group bookings. Knowing there was going to be big groups, there were only 2 servers on the floor. After dinner, we requested for the wine menu. We waited and waited but the servers were too busy to come back with it. In the end, we paid the bill and left to go elsewhere for a drink. It was quite disappointing. We might still go back for the food but will definitely find out if there is going to be many bookings on that day.
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.
