Each of the four restaurants offers a distinct cuisine in a room that only enhances the menu offerings. The Grand Dining Room is a magnificent and gracious space with dramatic, domed and frescoed ceilings. Here you may enjoy delicious caviar, lobster and French-inspired 6-course continental or fusion meals while being serenaded by a classical string quartet or concert pianist. You may even be inspired to take a turn around the dance floor between courses.
Intimate, yet with marvelous views of the sea, Toscana elegantly captures the flair and essence of Tuscany. Just 92 guests can experience the luscious gourmet dishes from Italy's many regions and enjoy the romantic, whimsical ambiance of this charming room. Tantalizing dishes like Gnocchi di Patate al Pesto, a delicious potato gnocchi in pesto sauce, or fresh fish prepared "alla Livornese" will tempt your taste buds. A fitting end to your meal might be a delicate Tiramisu or Affogato al Caffe.
Polo Grill, Oceania Cruises' classic steakhouse, is another small, intimate venue seating only 96 guests with expansive sea views to complement wonderful meals of supremely tender aged prime beef, chops and wonderful fresh seafood, perhaps a wonderfully grilled piece of fresh Ahi Tuna. For a completely different atmosphere there is Tapas on the Terrace. Accommodating only 80 guests, al fresco under a canopy of stars, the menu features a variety of tapas, specialty cocktails and remarkable, flavorful dishes from Spain and the surrounding Mediterranean. Perhaps a tasty paella suits your mood, or a chilled gazpacho. Among the dishes of tapas you might find sautéed shrimp, chorizo sausage and cured Serrano ham. And, you can enjoy live entertainment as you dine.
But there will also be excellent casual meals in the lovely sunlit Terrace Café where breakfast and lunch buffets are served. And contrary to standard practice, there will be changing entrees here to entice you. Should you wish to stay beside the pool and enjoy a casual lunch, you may. Waves BBQ serves a mouth-watering array of barbecue, pizza and daily chef's specials. Of course, anytime you would like to dine in the privacy of your stateroom, room service is available around the clock.
True food connoisseurs will appreciate the occasional special cooking trips ashore, designed to introduce cuisines found wherever the ships sail. On these tours guests will have the opportunity to prepare dishes themselves under the direction of local chefs. An adventure to be savored!
