This is a pretty hip place and very popular so would recommend booking. As you would expect the menu is Asian inspired. We enjoyed a shared sushi/sashimi platter. Superbly fresh and artfully presented. Located as part of the Grosvenor House twin tower complex.

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
