Soul Bar & Bistro

Smart Dining

Soul’s timeless appeal is in its large, marina-side deck, lined with luxuriant hanging baskets that surely must require their own dedicated gardener. As such, it’s easy to miss the newly renovated interior, inspired by the aesthetic of a tasteful superyacht, which is muted but sumptuous. Restaurateur par excellence Judith Tabron is at the helm, ensuring a consistent standard of calm, starched-tableclothed service. Gavin Doyle’s menu is fit for purpose: heavy on seafood and raw fish, a touch retro, and featuring crowd-pleasing meat and poultry mains. Soul is a place to come when you have an expense account and a client to woo over oysters, or for a celebratory lunch.
