Vida Vino brings the essence of the Mediterranean to Keong Saik Road

About Vida Vino

Vida Vino, a chic space that echoes the 50’s in a vibrant way, reflects what Vida Vino stands for – meaning ‘Wine Life’ in Spanish. It is a place where the beauty and the vibrancy of Spain meets the classic elegance of the Mediterranean – an honest space that pays homage to bygone days.

Vida Vino offers a casual dining experience, yet has fine attention to detail. The tapas are served in a fun-to-share manner. It is situated right in the heart of Singapore’s vibrant food scene at 29 Keong Saik Road in Singapore. 


The restaurant sources the highest quality, most fresh ingredients to produce its dishes. For example, the 5 Jotas Pure Iberico Jamon de Bellota, which is air flown weekly to Singapore from Jabugo in Spain; or clams that are flown in from France twice a week. These ingredients, prepared in a time-honoured tradition, give the savoury morsels produced in the Vida Vino kitchen their bona fide Mediterranean flavour. The dishes are creatively presented and the menu has a few modern twists, such as the Crispy Beer Tempura Courgette Flower, filled with Ricotta Cheese and Mint. On special occasions, you’ll be rewarded with something typical from the region – like Turron at Christmas time. 

Our Executive Chef

The kitchen is helmed by Executive Chef Victor Caballé Molina. 

Victor grew up in Spain and comes from a family of restaurateurs, sommeliers, pâtissiers and chefs. His grandfather, a great chef who cooked dishes from recipes handed down through generations, taught him to cook and pick fresh ingredients from his own garden. At 14, he learned to bake many variations of bread at a bakery owned by family friends. 

Victor honed his skills at some of the world’s finest restaurants. His professional development began under the tutelage of Chef John-Philippe Patruno from the three Michelin star restaurant Chez Nico on London’s Park Lane and the critically acclaimed Fino and Barrafina. He later worked at the 88-year old world renowned Quo Vadis on London’s Dean Street, as well as at the well known Jose Pizarro restaurant on Bermondsy Street and at the W Hotel’s Spice Market, before moving to Singapore. In Singapore, Victor reunited with Chef Jean-Philippe Patruno at Bomba. Most recently, he was the Head Chef of The Study restaurant (Keong Saik Snacks) – one of Jason Atherton’s famed eateries.  

The Wine Life

With wine in its name, the collection at Vida Vino spans from across the globe. Wines from Spain, Italy and France to New Zealand, Austria and California can be found here. The collection has been carefully selected with taste and quality in mind, featuring labels that may be off the beaten track yet are their wines are excellent, priced at great value.

The heavier reds pair fantastically with the Iberian ham platters and of course with the Iberico Pork Secreto. The light and crisp whites pair magically with the seafood dishes.

Even the drinks are special. The Vida Vino Sangria has proved very popular as it is loaded with liquor – Jack Daniels, Cointreau, Creme de Cassis, Cava – and fruits, including some coconut, which are blended together to make a ‘crystal clear’ Sangria. A Gin & Tonic is prepared using chardonnay to give it a crisp, refreshing taste. 

Our Sommelier

Cruise Yang is a wine enthusiast turned sommelier. He is a somewhat unorthodox in the discipline, as he believes that wine is much more than simply a drink – it is a lifestyle choice, a mood or it represents an idea. He breathes life into a wine menu with his romantic descriptions because his philosophy is that the mental impression of the wine is as important as the taste of the wines themselves. 

In 2009 Cruise opened a wine retail shop called “World of Wines”. In 2012 he partnered with Iconic Wines, Singapore’s largest Spanish wines distributor, to open ” E Plus Wine” at Dempsey Hill.Cruise is also the founder of “Man of wine”, a wine lover’s community where people are brought together, beyond our urban walls, one glass at a time.


Aaron Olivera, El Presidente Vida Vino was conceived by Aaron Olivera, the Founder and President of the Vida Vino Group. Aaron is from Gibraltar, a UK colony on Spain’s southernmost tip. He has been travelling to Singapore for the past 15 years, working in different industries, from Training and Development, to Oil and Gas and Publishing. In 2010 Aaron decided to pursue his passion to create spaces that afford people with ultimate enjoyment. Aaron believes that life is too short to allow ourselves the luxury of living it badly, that life should be a party, a grand festival. At Vida Vino he ensures that the overall direction and ethos stays true to the core of helping to deliver happiness.
