Shunjuu Izakaya at Robertson Quay

When the sun goes down, the restaurants and bars at Robertson Quay comes alive. In the daytime, the place is very peaceful and tranquil.

One word of caution if you are driving – the underground carpark has a sharp bend at the exit. Better to park elsewhere if you are driving anything wider than a Camry.
