The Seafood Bar
There’s nothing like an expertly prepared seafood dish. Nobody knows this better than the ex-fishmonger restaurateur behind The Seafood Bar. Using exclusively day-fresh products, his restaurant strives to work with fish that has been line-caught and responsibly sourced. Enjoy the locale’s minimal, sophisticated interior and choose from the vast wine and catch of the day selection for a truly satisfying experience; then, stay till dark for music, oysters, and cocktails!

The Roast Room
A meat eater’s utopia, the Roast Room prides itself in serving the best cuts of meat, burgers, charcuterie and sausages from its very own butchery. This space combines two floors: on the bottom, a bar/brasserie, and above, a fine dining hotspot. The Roast Room itself is absolutely beautiful: Van-Gogh-blue mixes with tile floor design, shining brass, modern design, and vintage elements. Open all day and in the centre, the Roast Room is sure to hit the spot.
