The buffet option for groups is the best option. Service is great and food was good. I liked the curries, seafood dishes and carvery. A booking is essential as the restaurant can be booked out over weekends for dinner.

A great stop for a lunch and beer. If you can eat it, it will probably be for sale somewhere in the Market. The location is great---at the docks and near the One & Only Hotel

Just loved walking through this market and I didn't find the vendors too pushy. It's a great place to spend the afternoon with sidewalk cafe's all around.
