I highly recommend the Freemason Abbey which is within walking distance from the pier.
It is an old church that was converted into a restaurant close to 20 years ago. Food is excellent. You are also near the MacArthur Center which is a huge mall with some wonderful restaurants.
If you are looking for Italian try La Galleria also nearby in the renovated Granby Street corridor.
If you have the time the MacArthur Museum is a wonderful way to spend an hour or two.
I hope you love your time here.
