Reinventing our classics

Star billing in the Compass Rose, the flagship restaurant of our fleet – apart from the gourmet cuisine and service – has to go to the stunning chandelier made from a cascade of aqua-blue glass ‘teardrops’ that brings the feel of the ocean into the venue, beautifully complement with rich woods and light marble stone and mother of pearl in light shades of blue, white, gold and silver. Compass Rose delights with an elegantly refined atmosphere and transitions from refreshing natural light during the day to a romantic ice blue lighting theme at night. This is the perfect setting for you to enjoy your breakfast, lunch and dinner, where the menu features an exceptional variety of Continental cuisine.
Inspired by the views of the Italian Riviera, the ambiance of La Veranda is one of everyday glamour. Rich blues and whites, contrasted with terrazzo floors and teak wood accents adorn the interior spaces, creating a stylish and spacious al fresco casual dining area, replete with comfortable cushioned seating and striped awnings that allow the breeze to flow through.
In the evenings, La Veranda transforms into the warm and inviting Sette Mari at La Veranda, where tables are candlelit to match the star-filled skies. The menu also transforms into a tantalizing journey of alluring antipasto, perfect homemade pastas, enticing main courses and desserts hailing from all over Italy. Dining alfresco is simply divine
