THIS season promises to be a bumper time for the ample restaurants in Jeffreys and Aston Bay.

Lee Barker, Sales and Marketing Manager of the Marina Wharf, is excited about the holiday season. “Expect more than ever before,” he says.

Think: scrumptious food, music, water lapping on the shore, island vibe . . .

The only waterfront restaurant in the area, Marina Wharf offers a leisurely boat cruise to patrons, couples on a romantic date night, families and a free water taxi service to residents of Marina Martinique.

Skipper Fraza Sekeramai expertly takes up to 12 people on the Spirit of Greece on a lovely trip on the canals in the exclusive Marina. The mini voyage allows you to sit back, relax, forget about the bustle around and build up a hearty appetite.

Owners Michael and Michelle Petrelis are hands-on and welcoming.

Lee says, “We offer a boat cruise special until December 15, when we expect the holiday-makers. Couples can take advantage of the date night special until then, which includes a bottle of bubbly, a 30-minute cruise and a delicious platter.”

The nearby Waterpark will be heaven-sent to parents who want to kick back and soak up the sun. The Wharf plans to park a food truck at the beach bar and serve snacks. They can swim, play, tuck into the food and beverages.

At night the atmosphere will be transformed by fire torches, music, a beach braai and the island vibe. And of course, the cruise.

“We expect up to 500 people a day in the peak period, usually running from December 15 until early January,” says Lee.

The young chef, Leo Dausi, who had his initial training at 3 Fat Fish, charms with his dishes.

He entices me with a ridiculously luscious carrot cake.

The Wharf is plastic-free and environmentally friendly, offering vegetarian and vegan options; but a sure winner for this season will be the breakfast buffet.

“Join us for a Christmas lunch to remember this year, for the whole family - furry children welcome! This is a time to be jolly and we aim to do that with a live band, DJ, all night dancing,” says Lee.

Bookings are essential.
