It was my friend’s birthday and we ordered Southern Fried Chicken, Roasted Mushrooms and Seafood Risotto. The food was delicious and the staff was extremely friendly, drinks were great. Excellent place and really hope to go there again. Recommend this restaurant!

This beautiful and spacious restaurant is quite easy to miss as it lies on the corner of a busy main street. Do not actually remember what we exactly ate on a Sunday afternoon but do remember that it was a decent fare. What actually killed...More

This is a dirty, place. Gordon Ramsey would have a field day here. We had a work dinner here. Served by a backpacker guy who clearly didn’t have hospitality experience (can’t discredit him for trying his best). The food was appalling. They got the order...More

As a bar and restaurant serving tapas, Pelican is everything you love rolled into one. Catch a cool breeze sitting at one of the iconic floor to ceiling portholes or grab a stool by the bar. Eat chargrilled octopus, saganaki with lemon wedges, or a lamb chop in this very modern, very funky establishment. Finish up with a wild night of wine and/or cocktails, starting with an espresso martini.
