The Riviera offers guests it's signature "finest cuisine at sea" in six restaurants, including two new gourmet venues as well as the ship's bars and lounges. 

Grand Dining Room

The Grand Dining Room offers approachable luxury on a grand scale. With multiple courses of French-inspired Continental dishes, this room aims to capture the feel of a European five-star restaurant, with fine china, crystal and silver alongside the formally attired waitstaff, frescoes and domed ceiling.

Jacques

Internationally renowned French chef Jacques Pepin lends his name and his talents to the first restaurant with his name on land or sea. Decorated with rich fabrics, heirloom antiques, wood furnishings and art from Jacques' personal collection, the restaurant resembles a classic Parisian bistro, offering simple yet classic French cuisine.

Red Ginger

Red Ginger's decorative centerpiece, three multi-colored Buddha heads each carved from a single piece of glass, is a giveaway to the restaurant's contemporary interpretations of Asian classics. Along with striking visuals that are rooted in the tradition of feng shui, Red Ginger's chefs have created a menu that draws from a variety of cuisines such as Thai, Malaysian and Indian. 

Privee

Privee is the Riviera's most indulgent dining experience. Decorated with Ferrari Red carpeting, oversized white baby crocodile throne chairs, Baroque millwork, and backlit onyx-clad walls, the setting for Privee is an intimate space designed to engage the senses of even the most discerning foodie.

The Polo Bar inside the restaurant also offers visitors a large variety of single-malt Scotch and full-grain whiskeys.

Toscana
