We visited Splash for a family meal of 4 and it cost us $61 because we got the early bird special which is before 6:30pm. My tuna was delicious and so was the risotto. It was child friendly and quick service.

Had a lovely dinner at Splash. Two of us shared the chowder, spring rolls and grilled Mediterranean Plate. All excellent and the staff was friendly. The pace was not fast but, the restaurant was very comfortable and well air conditioned.
