Dining

Dining in the elegant restaurants and dining venues is a high point of every Fred. Olsen cruise. There are deliciously-tempting dishes – expertly crafted by the chefs – on offer throughout the day, presented with the personal touch of Fred. Olsen’s famous on board service. 

THE BLOOMSBURY & TERRACE RESTAURANTS

These elegant two-tiered main restaurants are at the heart of the Fred. Olsen dining experience on board our flagship.

Every evening, you can enjoy a delicious five-course, á la carte menu, created, freshly prepared and cooked by the team of chefs and you will be taken care of by the wonderful waiters at your own table. The menu is changed daily and the elegant dishes include steaks, seafood, freshly made soups, pasta and salads plus a selection of beautiful homemade breads, made overnight in the on board bakery.

When you book a cruise on Bolette, your table will be allocated to you for the same time each evening for the duration of your cruise. However, if you prefer, you can choose flexible dining, which allows you to dine at any time in the evening.

THE VIEW

The View restaurant, Bolette’s buffet-dining venue, is a wonderful treat created to be just right for the relaxing feel you often want from days away and at sea. It is designed to be easy-going, with its light and open feel, beautiful views of the ocean, no formal dress-codes and no set tables.

Delicious breakfasts, lunches, afternoon teas and dinners are laid out as the most generous buffet and served to you by the crew. You can come and go as you please and eat whatever takes your fancy. And, when you are feeling peckish in the late evenings, you’ll find The View is open for a delicious late night buffet and bedtime snacks.

THE POOLSIDE CAFÉ

Situated close to the swimming pool and Jacuzzis on Lido Deck, midship, The Poolside Café is perfect for when you want a break from soaking up the sunshine and to enjoy a bite to eat in a relaxed, al fresco setting. 

Walk the short distance from the pool or your sun lounger to The Poolside Cafe, take a seat and enjoy a selection of delicious dishes, from perfectly cooked burgers and fish and chips to caesar salads and a ploughman’s plate. Whether you fancy something light, or perhaps have a bigger appetite, you’re sure to find something to satisfy your tastebuds.

COLOURS & TASTES

An evening at Bolette’s opulent Colours & Tastes restaurant makes for an unforgettable dining experience, one that is sure to be the highlight of any cruise on our flagship.  

Take a seat, settle in to your colourful, yet intimate Far East-inspired surroundings and enjoy a real taste of Asia at a venue where the mood is as vibrant as the flavours bursting from every mouthful.

The delicious food from Japan, Thailand, China, the Philippines and more, including a selection of classic dishes and unique delicacies such as spiced grilled meats, seafood, gyozas, dim sum and sushi, is expertly crafted by the talented chefs and will leave your tastebuds satisfied, yet eager for more. 

With a knowledgeable waiting team on hand to take care of your every need too, dining at Colours and Tastes is something you’ll want to experience time and again.

VASCO

Influenced by the cultures and flavours of India, and named after famous explorer Vasco Da Gama – the first European to reach India by sea, Bolette’s Vasco restaurant offers a fresh and modern take on some of the world’s finest food. 

Vasco’s Goan chefs have handcrafted every dish on the menu, to provide guests with a insight into the unique culinary delights of their homeland – a place where the tastes of Europe were first infused with Western India’s fragrant spices.

From delicious seafood to traditional spiced curries and perfectly-grilled meats, everything is cooked fresh and to order, to ensure that every morsel enjoyed is unforgettably flavoursome. What’s more, the restaurant’s bright colours and welcoming feel are also in keeping with Goa’s richness and warmth.

ROOM SERVICE

All rooms and Suites have tea and coffee making facilities as standard, so you can enjoy a pick-me-up first thing, and a relaxing drink at the end of the day. For those times when you’d like something more while you’re in your home-from-home at sea you can also order room service up until 11pm every day.

Continental breakfast can be ordered in advance for delivery at your preferred time, while snacks are available from 10am onwards. Should you prefer not to head to the restaurants, short lunch and dinner menus are also available. Whatever the time of day, you’ll never be hungry on a Fred. Olsen cruise.
