Popped in as we were staying in Grosvenor House. The decor is stunning and it’s a nice place to go for a romantic night out. Food and drinks are delicious and staff are always courteous and friendly. Will be back again soon.

This is our third Buddha- Bar in the world that we have visited. The atmosphere is so great and the food and service as well. Really friendly staff, and of course great music!

The food and ambience were great. However, the bar was a horrible experience. We waited for 45 mins and gave our order to 4 different people (bartenders, manager, hostesses) to never receive our drinks at all! On top of that, the barenders were conveniently ignoring...More

The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was
no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs

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
