With this dynamic duo of eateries adding to the already-beloved Salt Grill and Chef's Table, P&O passengers will be spoilt for choice! While dining at either restaurant will incur a nominal fee, it seems that the charge may be worth it for the amazing dishes on offer - you'll have to judge that for yourself.
Although sophisticated in cuisine and decor, both Dragon Lady and Angelo's will embrace the laid-back P&O vibe for a relaxed fine dining experience. Sture Myrmell, P&O Cruises Senior Vice President, says that they will have a modern, international flavour in keeping with the ships themselves.
"New Zealanders and Australians have a wonderfully broad palate - they like to eat different foods and try new experiences when they are on holiday, so we think the wide range of dining options on the Pacific Aria and Pacific Eden will really appeal" he commented.
Both restaurants will be available exclusively on the new ships which join the fleet in November this year. Between them they are scheduled to sail from Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide, Fremantle and Cairns at various points during 2015 and 2016, giving people in all different regions the chance to get onboard and try them out. New features, modern decor, elegant pool areas and the groundbreaking Pantry food market mean the Pacific Aria and Pacific Eden are heralding a new era of cruising in Australia
There's no doubting that Asian cuisine is a favourite amongst Aussies everywhere, and this exciting eatery will appeal to a broad range of diners with its pan-Asian menu. The atmosphere is exotic and colourful with moody lighting, a perfect backdrop to the exciting flavours of China, Thailand, Vietnam, Japan, Indonesia and India.
What's to eat? Highlights on the unveiled menus include Gaeng Dang Creamy Chicken Soup, Tempura-crusted Uramaki Sushi, Singapore-style Soft Shell Crab, Kung Pao Slow-cooked Beef Cheeks and a Salted 70% Dark Chocolate Cake.
This contemporary Italian eatery will be more than just pasta and pizza. Mr Myrmell said of the concept: â€œWe've considered a mix of classic Italian dishes in the menu but also added a very modern take that incorporates the latest trends in Italian dining. That will entail dishes like Linguine Pasta Vongole and Eight-Hour Veal Ossobucco as well as some surprising menu items such as Sicilian-style Sardines.
The bright and sleek design will welcome diners for a fantastic evening. It takes inspiration from Angelo Frontoni, a well-known Italian photographer, and is designed as a taste of la dolce vita for P&O holidaymakers.
