Go for the view, grab a window seat and order black rice cuttlefish paella. It’s the signature dish at Island Market, wonderfully dark and inky with a crusty base, just as it should be.
It’s a dish consultant chef David Coomer brought to the menu and it’s as good as it has ever been. Food is just a part of the appeal in this slick beachside diner with splashes of pink and colourful neon lights.
The views are the big deal. Any closer to the ocean, you’d be swimming.
It’s busy and fun. The food is mostly good. Unwind with a gin tonica at sunset or settle in for three or four share plates from a Levantine-inspired menu that covers all tastes. Filled pitas are available during the day. Barefoot in bathers? Slip into Canteen, next door, for a poke bowl.
