Queen Mary 2 - Gastronomy


Restaurant

On board the Queen Mary 2, guests live and dine exquisitely. Main courses based on fish, poultry or various types of meat are always perfect. The portions are sizable and the desserts are wonderful. Vegetarian options complete the menu. A select but not cheap range of wines accompanies the dishes. Water is served with meals. The service is exemplary.

The restaurants associated with the cabin categories

With the decision for the cabin category, it is determined in which of the three main restaurants mentioned below the meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) are taken.

It should be noted that the shipping company attaches importance to observing a certain dress code after 18pm in the evening. Whether “informal” or “formal” regulates the daily program. From this point on, jeans are no longer desired in the service restaurants.

We find it pleasant to have lunch at the Golden Lion Pub. After hearty, delicious fish & chips or a ploughman's lunch accompanied by a draft Old Speckled Hen, we recommend doing several laps around the surrounding boat deck.

Bars & Lounges

A passenger ship of the shipping company's size and demands requires representative bars and lounges. We present them staggered by deck:

Golden Lion Pub - Deck 2

A pub belongs on an “English” ship. While this pub doesn't exactly match our experience of 'quintessentially English' pubs, we visit it regularly. The Golden Lion is not lacking in popularity. It's no wonder, since its small menu offers hearty English dishes at lunchtime and in the evenings visitors while away their time with live music, darts, broadcasts of sporting events, and quizzes and karaoke events. And the well-kept drinks are not to be scoffed at.

During the journey they are cared for by the Kennel Masters. Even a London fire hydrant was thought of so the males could lift their leg. Pet owners are free to visit their animals during the trip.
