If there’s one way to get to know a new destination, it’s opening your taste buds to a whole new world of local flavours – something that Avalon Waterways prides itself on for its guests, particularly when it comes to its onboard dining. By sourcing local produce throughout your cruise, you are guaranteed to taste the freshest local flavours in each meal that are carefully curated by talented chefs. 

Elevating it to the next level is Avalon’s FlexDining® approach to onboard dining experiences whilst you savour the local flavours of the world. Which of these dining options would you like to try? 

Panorama Bistro 

Avalon Panorama Bistro

Introducing a tasting menu with a view! Come dinner time, the Panorama Lounge merges into the Panorama Bistro – a relaxed venue with tasty variations of the night’s main Dining Room meals on offer, alongside complimentary wine or beer. It’s perfect for if you want a light dinner, if you prefer more of a grazing-style meal, or if you want to linger with friends in a casual setting. Choose from a selection of entrées and salads to main dishes and desserts, and if you want to enjoy dinner indoors or outdoors on the Observation Lounge.  

Sky Grill

While this is weather-dependent, you may be lucky enough to have the opportunity to have an al fresco lunch at the Sky Grill. Our chefs set up an area on the Sky Deck for you to enjoy a delicious BBQ scene, complete with dessert, so you can watch the world pass by with 360-degree views.  

Main Dining Room

Of course, the main dining room is still available for breakfast, lunch and dinner. From day to night, there is no doubt that you will enjoy an elegant setting with various sized tables so you can opt for a romantic dinner for two to a larger table with friends or family. Lunches and dinners will primarily showcase the local flavours of the destination you’re passing through, rounded off with regional wine served with your à la carte dinners. 

Avalon Fresh®

Last but not least, we can’t look past a mention of Avalon Fresh®! Avalon has exclusively collaborated with Austrian chefs Leo and Karl Wrenkh (leaders in the healthy dining movement) to provide guests with the ability to eat healthy at every meal if you so wish. From an energising juice at breakfast to a high-protein plate at dinner, Avalon Fresh® have you covered.
