We took a boat over and docked at the restaurants dock. They seated us by the window and we had an amazing view. The food and drinks were good. Not fine dining but it was a great destination on an evening boat ride.

Went for a walk on the waterfront and had dinner at CI’s. The carbonara was so good, and the views can’t be beat. Service was great even with all the Prom couples there.
