A feast of flavours

On an Avalon cruise, every meal is part of the journey. Using the freshest local ingredients, our talented chefs prepare delicious recipes from the region through which you’re travelling and present them in a variety of inspiring settings.

Try an al fresco lunch at the Sky Bistro or a light dinner in the Panorama Bistro. With à la carte waiter service in an elegant dining room with panoramic windows, you’re always assured of stunning views and superb service, with complimentary wine and beer at lunch and dinner.

With eggs cooked the way you like them and daily fresh bread, breakfast is a tempting international selection of hot dishes and continental options. Tuck into hearty soups, hot dishes, salads, cold cuts and desserts at a lunch buffet. Dinner is a five-star gourmet experience complimented by regional wines selected by a professional sommelier: a full-bodied and velvety Brogsitter along the Rhine in Germany or an invigorating Le Chant du Moulin on the River Seine in France.

We also cater for a range of dietary requirements. And if you’d like to explore a port destination by yourself, there’s no need to miss out on our quality cuisine, as we’ll prepare you a delicious packed lunch.

We understand the importance of enjoying meals just the way you like them. With Avalon, you decide what and where to eat on board.

A fresh new concept

Look out for the Avalon Fresh dishes appearing throughout our menus, created exclusively for us by rising star chefs the Wrenkh brothers.

Founders of the Wrenkh Vienna Culinary School, Leo and Karl were born into a kitchen culture – their father Christian having opened Austria’s first haute vegetarian restaurant in 1982. For Avalon, the brothers have developed an inventive menu of dishes that celebrate regional traditions and honour our relationship with what’s in season, what grows locally in each destination and how best to showcase the quality of these ingredients. So whether it’s a vanilla-marinated apple and raisin aperitif, drizzled with pistachios; or a sage-sautéed spinach gnocchi served with fried beetroot; look out for their imaginative creations alongside our own seasonal gourmet dishes.
