My friend and I walked here in August and it was scorching! The place looks cool, and the architecturally pretty "roof" walkway looks quite nice, but offers no respite from the sun. There is NO shade in this whole area, so stay away in the heat of summer! It was pretty with views to the cathedral across the water, but it wasn't busy enough to be fun to hang out at for a long time - probably because we went in August. We found a restaurant and sat to have some drinks in the shade and that was nice, but it would have been better if more people were around.
