We had a great time at this restaurant. It is situated in a lovely open room, with beautiful decor. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and the cocktails were really good fun. Would highly recommend a visit.

Dinner & drinks here as a party of four in May. Spectacular place with decor and ambiance. Food was excellent and very tasty. As usual the drinks bill was bigger than the food bill... Great fun evening, we'll be back....

The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was
no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs
along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of
luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the
marina hosts regular community events and markets, and
is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or
evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers
glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next
