Dining & Restaurants on Braemar

Main Restaurant Dining

Braemar features four elegant and intimate dining venues, each serving tempting indulgences perfectly prepared by our expert chefs. Whether you’re feeling peckish or are simply making the most of your time on board to indulge, you’ll always find something heavenly to tantalise your tastebuds. 

A hearty breakfast cooked just how you like it is the perfect start to each day; while the delicious buffets on offer in the delightful Palms Café are ideal for a quick lunch or a late-night snack. In the main Thistle and Grampian restaurants, enjoy formal five-course á la carte dinners every evening; or perhaps book The Grill for al fresco dining at it’s finest. 

Every meal is a special experience on board Braemar.

The Thistle Restaurant

Located at the stern of the ship on Main Deck 4, The Thistle is Braemar’s largest restaurant. Tastefully decorated in creamy-beige and mocha, the Thistle assumes an air of timeless style and elegance; while spectacular ocean views are yours to enjoy as you devour a delicious, 5-course a la carte meal in the evening, or breakfast – cooked just the way you like it – in the morning.

Grampian Restaurant

The Grampian is more compact than The Thistle restaurant and has smaller tables ideal for a more intimate and formal dining experience on board Braemar. Located at the stern of the ship on Marquee Deck 8, The Grampian is enhanced further by large windows which provide stunning sea views to enjoy as the friendly waiters cater to your every need.

The Palms Café

Slightly less formal than The Thistle and The Grampian, the Palms Café offers a relaxed buffet style of service – perfect for guests who prefer not to dine at a set time, or those looking for a late night snack. While the style of the Palms Café is a lot more relaxed, you can still expect to find an abundance of indulgent dishes, expertly prepared to Fred.’s renowned high standards.

The Marquee Bar

Enjoy a more casual al-fresco lunch on board Braemar, this is the perfect place to enjoy the sun and a more relaxed dining option, with delicacies such as fish and chips, burgers or salads (weather permitting).
