Every time when we are in Canal Walk we go to John Dory's. Food is always delicious and fabulous. Staff is friendly. It has an amazing kiddies play area. One of our favourite restaurants!

Family-friendly restaurant, similar to The Spur, but specialize more in Seafood. They do serve delicious 'value for money' Grills as well as Sushi too. Friendly staff. Kids younger than 12 years eat for free on a Sunday.
