The restaurant’s main dining room caters to 65 guests, ensuring an intimate and elegant dining setting backdropped by the glittering cityscape, visible through floor-to-ceiling windows. Dressed with rich burgundy leather and glossy parquet timber floors, the space is warm and inviting thanks to inspired lighting, which serves to delineate the main dining room from the spacious cocktail bar.

The result is a space that evolves with the passing of the day, capturing the mood of the city as it transitions into dusk and then night, making for the perfect destination for romantic dining, special celebrations or corporate entertaining.

In contrast to the formal dining room, Harbourside Grill’s expansive terrace caters to 80 guests and promises the best sunsets in the city. The use of concrete pavers, comfortable café-style seating, large lounge suites, marble-topped tables and broad umbrellas create a sophisticated yet accessible space in which guests can sample from the restaurant’s comprehensive cocktail and wine lists or order from the terrace-specific menu. A spectacular setting for pre-dinner sunset drinks, leisurely weekend lunches or special occasions, the terrace promises to be one of the city’s hottest dining locales as well as a popular setting for corporate gatherings.

Helming the kitchen at Harbourside Grill is executive chef Armand Sablon. Born and raised in Brighton, England by British and French parents, Armand was a recipient of the coveted Roux Scholarship and has worked at some of Europe’s leading restaurants, including three Michelin-starred Auberge de l’Ill in Alsace, Galvin at Windows at the Hilton Park Lane, and at Hotel Cafe Royal London, where he oversaw all dining outlets. At Harbourside Grill, Chef Sablon presents a grill-centric menu laced with French finesse, offering diners a refined culinary experience.

Key to the menus at Harbourside Grill are the finest cuts of meat, cooked in a Spanish Josper Grill, a specialist oven that achieves extremely high temperatures, forming an instantaneous crust around the meat while trapping in natural juices to enrich the flavour.
