    Belthazar and Willoughby - depending if you prefer meat or fish. But all the places in the Waterfront are excellent- don't eat in the hotel - walk a bit!

    No the area is not gated. We walked frequently to and from V and A wharf without fear. We were always in a group of 4. But it felt very safe.
