Restaurant review: The Equinox

Restaurant: The Equinox

Location: 2 Stamford Road | Level 70, Equinox Complex, Swissôtel The Stamford, Singapore 178882, Singapore

The scene

I love taking photos and told my friend that I wanted the best view of Singapore, so he booked us dinner for 2 here at The Equinox restaurant. This is a very classy place and the ambiance is just perfect – dim lights with candles on each table. It was also beautifully decorated and well-ventilated. The place is very cozy and comfortable too.

The service

When we arrived at the venue, we waited for the receptionist for about 4 minutes because she was entertaining some guests to their seats before us. My friend booked us window seats because that’s ultimately the best view ever! Oh, that’s an additional S$20 too!

Service was pretty good. The waitress was attentive and would frequently ask us if we still need anything. The servers would give us bread rolls while we waited for our meals. ( we were so FULL after the second meal ;D )

The food

Food was really great! I love everything about it! I could still remember telling my friend, “OMG, this is so good.” , “This is so delicious!” or “ The Black Truffle Butter is the best!!!”

Here’s what we ordered:

Appetizer:

The price

The dress code

Remember it’s a classy restaurant, so please wear semi-formal attire.

Overall rating: I give this restaurant a 10/10!

Given the chance, I would definitely go back here! This place has the best view of Singapore especially at night! You would see The Singapore Flyer, Marina Bay Sands, The Esplanade, etc in all their glory! Hahaha.

Frozen’s Olaf

I can’t believe it! Until now, kids are crazy with Disney’s Frozen! But who can blame them? The characters are so cute and the story is beautiful!

Everyone loves Olaf, the fun-loving snowman. He had some famous lines that makes us go “Awwwww”

Here’s our favorite quotes from Olaf:

“Love is putting someone else’s needs before yours.” ❤️ Ahhh yes. This is indeed true! Hihihi

“Some people are worth melting for” ❤️ OMG. This is just the best line ever! I’m sure you’ll all agree with me. 😍

“Winter is a good time to stay in and cuddle, but put me in summer and I’ll be a Happy Snowman!!!” ❤️ And everyone panics and says: “NO Way!!! He’ll melt!” Hahaha 😁
