Whether you consider yourself a food connoisseur or a more casual foodie who just loves high-quality dining, you're still guaranteed to be amazed by the options offered on an Oceania cruise. Serving The Finest Cuisine at Sea™, overseen by Executive Culinary Director and Master Chef Jacques Pépin, you’ll delight in flavours from across the globe.
Every restaurant is included in your cruise fare, so you needn’t have a second thought when selecting which venue. Plus, every restaurant operates an open-seating policy meaning you can dine whenever you want, with whomever you want – perfect if an intimate dinner is more appealing than a traditional group table.
The Grand Dining Room is the main venue of every ship, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. A variety of international dishes are always available, with a speciality lunchtime Bistro menu offering cherished favourites alongside regional specialities every day. No longer is fine dining the preserve of dinner time.
For a more casual experience, the Terrace Café is a buffet-style restaurant for breakfast and lunch, before becoming a relaxed dining room for dinner with menu options from across the ship’s venues.
It’s also worth noting that the Grand Dining Room and Terrace Café offer one of the most expansive and well thought-out vegan menus available not just at sea, but worldwide.
Across every ship, you can savour classic steakhouse fare at Polo Grill; most notably the beef dishes, all of which are USDA Prime and dry-aged for 28 days to enhance tenderness and flavour. In Toscana, enjoy family recipes handed down through generations. Presented on elegant Versace china, each dish is a masterpiece that exemplifies the essence of Tuscany.
You can also reserve Privée for a small supplement; this is a private dining venue for up to 10 people with dishes served from Polo Grill and Toscana. When you’re in the mood for a lighter bite, head to the Waves Grill for a burger, some seafood or a fresh salad.
Marina and Riviera have a number of additional restaurants too. Jacques is an homage to the culinary director and Master Chef, Jacques Pépin; offering the finest in Provençal cuisine with unique twists to elevate it to amazing new levels. Meanwhile, La Reserve is a venue that specialises in exploring food and wine pairings. Your seven-course gourmet tasting menu is matched to a range of fine wines by the onboard sommelier for an outstanding meal.
Red Ginger is a critically-acclaimed Asian fusion restaurant, available not only on Marina and Riviera but on Sirena too. Here you’ll find contemporary interpretations of classic dishes from across the Far East. Finally, exclusively to Sirena is Tuscan Steak, with an innovative menu that combines traditional steakhouse fare with authentic Italian passion.
The dining options are just a small part of your five-star Oceania cruise holiday, with sumptuous suite accommodation and outstanding public areas with great entertainment. With exciting itineraries calling at many smaller ports some larger ships cannot reach, your cruise is an experience to remember.
