Great place buzzing with a fab atmosphere. Drinks and food were all great and tasty. Amazing service from the outset. Very busy place so would recommend booking in advance like I did. Great views in and out of the restaurant.

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
