Thistle Restaurant

Located on Main Deck 4 at the base of the ship’s beautiful Atrium, the Thistle is Braemar’s largest restaurant. Tastefully decorated in creamy-beige and mocha coloured furnishings, the Thistle assumes an air of timeless style and elegance. 

Thanks to large picture windows, guests can take in spectacular views from their spacious table and comfortable chair while devouring delicious, five-course á la carte dinners in the evening, as well as hearty breakfasts every morning.


Smaller and cosier than the Thistle Restaurant, the Grampian is popular with guests who prefer an even more intimate dining experience. The table sizes in the Grampian are perfect for enjoying Fred. Olsen’s renowned delectable dining in the company of a loved one, or just a few of your new-found friends. 

Located at the top of the Braemar’s stunning Atrium on Marquee Deck, The Grampian is enhanced further by large windows providing breathtaking views to enjoy in the comfort of newly updated seating, as the friendly waiters cater to your every need.


Completely refurbished as part of Braemar’s extensive refit in late 2017, the Palms Café has been improved with new, stylish upholstery, soft furnishings and seating to create an inviting space in which to enjoy a more relaxed, slightly less formal style of dining. 

Although they’ve changed the look of the Palms Café, you can still expect to enjoy an array of tempting buffet dishes here – perfect if you would prefer to not dine at a set time, or are simply looking for a late night snack. And, of course, every dish available will be expertly prepared to Fred. Olsen’s renowned high standards.


For an extra special dining experience, book a table at The Grill for dining at its finest.

Open in warm weather, The Grill – located at the stern of the ship on Lido Deck – combines the relaxing sounds of the ocean with incredible views and fantastic food – a real feast for all the senses. Indulge at lunchtime, or perhaps treat yourself to The Grill’s premium dinner menu in the evening – a unique experience that’s not to be missed.

Booking ahead is highly recommended at the speciality dining venues and this can be done using the pre-book button in your ‘My Cruises‘ account from 13 weeks before and up to 1 day prior to departure. Please note, there is a £10 per person supplement for this dining option, speciality dining booked on board is chargeable at £15 per person. *Prices subject to change without notice.


Braemar’s top deck The Marquee Bar provides guests with an al fresco daytime dining option, offering a tempting menu of hearty breakfasts and delicious light lunches. 

Situated on Marquee Deck, out in the open-air, the bar provides unspoilt views of spectacular scenery and cooling sea air to enjoy as you start your day; or perhaps while you take a break from sunbathing by the nearby pools. 


Each day complimentary afternoon tea is served, with sandwiches, scones and cakes, along with fresh tea and coffee, always a popular choice.

During sea days guests can book a very select experience: Traditional Premium Afternoon Tea*. Enjoy beautiful views from the stylish The Observatory Lounge, with musical accompaniment from our on board pianist and the careful attention of white-gloved waiters.

Your choice from a selection of premium teas by Taylors of Harrogate is served in porcelain teapots, along with elegant finger sandwiches, pastries and warm scones with jam and clotted cream. Such civilised indulgence – and all for only £11.99 per person*. Prices subject to change without notice.

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.
