This is a stylish restaurant, café and bar with white interiors, turquoise accents, old vespas, and a dash of 50’s pin-up girl décor.

Although the name hints of a sea or circus-inspired theme, Sea Circus follows neither theme. Like an abstract painting, it’s up to the diners to interpret what Sea Circus is all about.

What Sea Circus lacks in ocean views, it makes up for its healthy, sumptuous menu! They have everything from Australian favorites like steaks, fish n’ chips to South American comfort foods like tacos and tortilla wraps.
