Hemingway’s Bistro

It’s a relaxed family affair and veranda tables allow diners to take in the hustle and bustle of the Davenport district below. The menu is Mediterranean-inspired-think prawn and pesto pasta or a hearty steak and food is delivered with a flourish by smart, snappy and knowledgeable staff.

Havana Grill

A consistently good dining experience that delivers on all levels. The strikingly handsome restaurant is nirvana to the carnivorous-steak is the star attraction and quality is guaranteed by the in-house butchery. That said, non-believers are also well catered for and there is, of course, an interest...

Green Mango

The setting is functional and comfy, leaving it to the food to pack a punch. Chef Roger Sirvanjanakul augments the dishes of his native Thailand with a good sushi selection. Choose a platter for starters and then relish an exceptional red duck curry. The pad Thai options are better than most.

The trendy, vibrant bistro happily stretches onto the pavement.

Freedom Cafe

The restaurant spills from a converted shipping container into a tree-covered courtyard and the décor is as quirky as the premises. Food is, however, serious business here and breakfast and light lunches are prepared with love and the occasional local, idiosyncratic twist. At tea-time, you’re inv...

From the blissful, crisp, contemporary interior, diners can soak up views of manicured lawns melting into the Indian Ocean. The air of quit sophistication extends to the light café menu that covers a smattering of salads, pastas, ciabatta and the mandatory seafood. The lamb curry remains a hit. Won...

Daruma

An elegant, authentic Japanese eatery manned by knowledgeable staff. Quality is paramount and sushi is for the cognoscenti with the likes of eel sashimi. Tasting platters are available and the tempura prawns are the best in town. For a more social affair, join one of the teppanyaki tables and watch ...

CZAR

The listed building houses a swanky bar and sophisticated dining area, but head for the alfresco area, which has Florida Road street cred. The main appeal here is Asian-style tapas (sushi, tempura and dim sum), but main dishes arte interpretations of classics. An easy-eating menu operates at lunch.

Craft Trattoria

Not your typical neighbourhood eatery. The funky interior is curated with a great sense of style and humour, and the menu celebrates the deceptive simplicity of Italian fare. Pastas are made fresh and pizzas will placate the most discerning palate. Look out for great specials and the locally-brewed ...
