My wife and I have eaten at Esquina a few times now. And each time, the service is wonderful and attentive, and the food is incredible (particularly the tuna tartar and grilled octopus).

We had the Tasting Menu which was excellent in value and tastes too. Menu attached. Apéritif wine was white Vina Esmeralda and red wine Ribera del Duero which were exquisite too. My favorite dish was the sea urchin paella.

Apart from being a bit chaotic at opening. You get limited time to eat and they open on the dot of 6. Food was excellent . Presentation stunning. The mini starters oysters mini breakfast etc were very good. The grilled lettuce amazingly good. The lamb...disappointingly changed to cannelloni which was the poorest dish. To many conflicting flavours. The palate cleanser and 2 desserts were lovely. Wine list small but found a nice ribero del duero They have a nice selection of sherries tooMore

Came here a few years ago and had a great celebratory dinner for a friend, returned here a few years after for a wedding anniversary and the quality remained great as far as I can recall. But what I'm impressed at most is definitely the...service provided. Forgot to get her name but it was a very approachable Indian lady who was very prompt with assistance and went the extra mile by paying attention to minute details which we really appreciated it. Tried the tasting menu and it definitely worth every dime, we have a great anniversary meal and I recommend this to everyone else who needs a great night/day out with awesome table service!More

We started with the oysters, which were fresh and garnished really well. The croquettes which came after were really good, too. The roasted burrata fell slightly short of expectations. While the gravy in which the burrata sat was yummy, it took away from the taste...of the burrata. The mains of scallops and cannelloni was good, but the highlight of the evening was the dessert. The cheesecake was nothing like I have had before and was a perfect ending to the dinnerMore

I have been here a few times over the years but finally getting chance to review. House wines are good. They have decent beer on tap. All of the food is well prepared and made. Unless you come on an off day this place is...generally worth it.More

Definitely one of my favorites in SG... all the dishes are so TASTY! Sea Urchin Paella is highly recommended. I would love to go back there again.

We were lucky to get seat on the level 2 (ground floor a bit cramp). Food was delicious and refreshing. Love the oysters. Great service from the waitress who need to serve the whole level 2. I think as a customer, we should be more...accommodative, understanding and patient during peak hours in a restaurant. Will be back to try other dishes.More

Another delightful dinner at Esquina. Everything was delicious except the uni paella, which was a little too oily and rich. The strawberry dessert was exceptional, highly recommended! The burnt cheesecake was very good too.

I had heard only great things about this place but must admit that after my dining experience, I was very disappointed. The service was not attentive and the customer service level expected from this kind of upscale restaurant is very dissapointing. To be fair the...foods were good but not spectacular. Not coming back for the second time.More
