Deliciosas tapas

Wow, these guys have really hit on a winning formula.  Packed to over flowing on most nights (no prior reservations can be made in case you're wondering)  this place has a busy, vibrant, borderline hectic ambience, with mouth watering tapas being prepared by a team of skilled chefs a couple of feet in front of your eyes. It's an exciting place to dine.The tapas is the best I've tasked in Singapore so far.  Grilled asparagus with quail eggs and iberico ham was one out of many memorable tapas dishes we sampled, with a selection of deserts being every bit as good.A selection of Spanish beer (San miguel of course, but also some more interesting brews) and wine adds to the authentic feel.Esquina may not be for everyone.   It's not a place to go for a quiet chat, or a first date perhaps, unless feeling adventurous. The long narrow canteen style interior is a little cramped, and with uncomfortable iron bicyle style seats,  it does not always make for a relaxing experience.  But for a fun night out, with great food, Esquina's a great choice. Viva Espana. Viva Esquina

Food was boring and everything tasted kinda bland.
Crispy chicken skin was ok. Churros was ... ok. Burgers were nice but kinda slimy. No spice or zing to anything. Fish dish was better. Did not like the fact they charged $6.50 for water. No cocktail menu either :(

I had lunch here with 2 colleagues, the food is exceptionally good and for S$35 per person the set-lunch is great value. The counter service with full view of the kitchen is very special and the service spot on.
