Cafe Jardin – on board Oceana

Wrapping around the top of the atrium on D deck, Cafe Jardin is a light and airy Italian restaurant with a lively atmosphere that has it all. Authenticity is cooked into every delicious bite, with ingredients sourced straight from Italy. A Select Dining experience in the evening, with dishes including Pork Milanese, the Venetian Seafood Plank, and of course traditional Italian desserts.

You can also ‘go Italian’ for breakfast or lunch, with sourdough pizzas, an Italian deli and the pannetteria counter, included in the cost of your holiday.

The Epicurean - on board Azura, Britannia & Ventura

The Epicurean celebrates fine dining traditions of the past, combining them with contemporary presentation and the very best ingredients. With time to thoroughly appreciate each course, you can relax and revel in the restaurant’s special atmosphere.


The Glass House – on board Aurora, Azura, Britannia and Ventura

If you enjoy a glass of wine with your meal you'll want to visit to The Glass House.

On the venue's signature menu, every course will come with the option of a different glass of wine, expertly matched by our expert, Olly Smith. With a handsomely stocked wine cellar and mouth-watering daytime and evening menus, The Glass House will be a relaxed, informal haven of good food and fine wine. What's more, selected bottles will be available by the glass, so there's no need to order the whole bottle to sample a particular vintage. 



The Horizon Restaurant - on board Aurora

The Horizon Restaurant which is 24 hours, an informal self-service restaurant, is located in the aft section of Lido Deck.

It has easy access to the surrounding decks and facilities. This large eatery opens early and provides full English breakfasts, extensive buffets for lunch and afternoon tea. With walls covered in vibrant modern murals, this colourful, light and airy room has a casual atmosphere, and at 80 feet above the water line, The Horizon Restaurant affords spectacular sea views. In the evening, softer lighting and the opening of a dance floor transform The Horizon Restaurant into the perfect venue for a themed dinner.


Sindhu – on board Azura, Aurora, Arcadia, Britannia, Oriana and Ventura


Visit Sindhu and you’ll be treated to authentic Indian cuisine with a British twist. Showcasing a menu which is a triumph of perfectly balanced spices, delicate flavours and wonderful aromas, this restaurant has become a firm favourite with many. So why not take a seat amidst its sumptuous fabrics and opulent décor to experience a treat for your senses? Dishes such as pan-roasted beef tenderloin, spiced mash, garlic spinach purée and masala sauce vie for your attention alongside ginger and mint tiger prawns and the signature dish - a trio of fragrant curries. All meticulously crafted with high quality produce and served with a flourish. 


Ocean Grill – on board Arcadia

Marco Pierre White is famous for his attention to detail that creates stunning dishes and equally impressive dining areas.

Ocean Grill continues his exceptional standard – expect dishes like baked Portobello mushroom with spinach leaf and pecan salad and salt marsh lamb rack with dauphinoise potatoes, crushed minted peas and a romarin scented jus. And of course no self-respecting grill would be complete without succulent steaks – ours come from Casterbridge Grass-fed English beef, dry aged for a minimum of 28 days.


The Limelight Club (adult only) - on board Britannia

Located on Deck 5.

Reigniting the tradition of the supper club, The Limelight Club brings you a dining experience that has more than great food on the menu..... you will be treated to an exclusive performance by very special guest.


**Please note  The Horizon Restaurant will feature the Beach House Menu.
