Coco Lounge is another one of my favourites. The food is great, and again they serve a mixture of continental foods Pizza's, burgers, pasta's, salads, desserts etc. Coco Lounge is a 5 min drive/taxi ride depending on traffic, as this restaurant is not far from the airport. I would advise leaving a bit earlier if dining around rush hour.

Bistro 22 is lovely restaurant and one of my favourites. The food is great especially the pastas and salads. The ambience is also spot on!
