This fashionable Moroccan bar and restaurant has a selection of a la carte choices, tapas made to share and a weekend brunch menu. After you dine on orange and chilli-marinated duck leg or couscous and chickpea salad, head downstairs for entertainment from belly dancers or a bit of shisha. You won’t be able to resist the rose petal martini.

If it’s healthier modern French fare you want, visit this restaurant to get big flavour sans a big waistline. You can choose from selections such as grilled scallops with udon noodles and fruit escabèche or a salad with green tomato chutney vineleaf and balsamic vinegar. Be sure to notice the woodland-inspired decor and Swarovski crystal-studded walls. The restaurant is open to the public for its lunch menu and reserved for private dining by evening.
