Although a bit hard to find, we did make it to Marina and enjoyed the colourful decor. The service was great. The tacos ($7 ea.) were unique and very tasty, but not filling enough to stand on their own even when ordering 2 each. The interesting menu needs more variety and full plate dinner options with more appetizers and some side dishes, salads, rice, beans, desserts etc. to go with the yummy tacos. The asian-style brussel sprouts ($11) as an appetizer were really different, flavourful, but maybe a bit overpowering without maybe a flatbread or rice or something to balance it out. I still enjoyed them although my husband just ate them because he was really hungry. Including tax and tip, it came to about $50 but we were hungry shortly after. I did enjoy the experience and would go back again if the menu was updated.

Amazing experience!! We were a party of 6 (4 adults, 2 children aged 10 and 15). We did not know much about this restaurant at all! Bailey our waitress was AMAZING! She helped all of us order based on what we might like and she was BANG ON! This is now my favourite restaurant and I cannot wait to go back and try more on this amazing menu!! Will also hope to have Bailey again!!
