Venue Testimonials

Cruise Bar is possibly in one of the best locations on the Harbour. The views are amazing and the food and drink options are fantastic. Definitely recommend for a romantic after-dinner drink, a corporate lunch, or even group drinks after work.

The food at Cruise Bar was beautifully cooked and the service was excellent. The service staff had extensive knowledge of the drinks menu. Good place for a first date or to celebrate special occasions!
