Once you’ve landed safely back on the ground, scrub yourself up and head out for a well deserved meal. Yknot Bistro poses as the perfect location to relax and indulge after a day overlooking the beautiful water’s edge that you’ve been gazing over earlier in the day, either so elegantly on your helicopter ride or so nervously on you skydive. Dive into one of their divine fish dishes such as the mixed oyster platter or beer battered fish of the day to quench your seafood tastebuds. If you’re feeling a little less oceanic, give their tasty twice cooked pork belly a go, which promises to melt in your mouth. Whatever dish you’re in the mood to indulge, swallow it down with your favourite glass of wine or beer and have a toast to your adventurous day above land.
