For Chef Gunther, his main focus is to present sophisticated French cuisine and make his guests feel at home in his restaurant. “What I’m doing here is simple, honest food; cooking that comes from the heart.” His menu is as creative as the man himself, and executed with finesse and excellence. There is also an extensive wine cellar for your perusing, for that glass of wine to accompany your meal.

Whatever the weather, your kids will have a ball of a time whether they’re indoors or outdoors. Inside, there’s a playroom with a slide, a crawling tunnel, toys, books and a television set. Outside, there’s space to scoot or run about, and a football table. Meanwhile, Dad and Mum can enjoy classic Tuscan (Italian) food and a glass of good wine.

- Equinox Restaurant
One would think that a high-class restaurant like this would frown upon their patrons bringing kids for a meal, but Equinox Restaurant is truly one of a kind. On Sundays, the kids will get their own room stocked with toys, games and a Nintendo Wii, as well as their own buffet line. The means Dad and Mum can enjoy some alone-time without being too far away. Price-wise, this is definitely going to cost you big bucks, but the experience of being 70 storeys up in the air, having a view of the CBD and Marina Bay, and indulging in all manner of delicious and fresh seafood and a bottle of bubbly, makes this a truly magical experience.
