Grand Dining Room on Saga's Spirit of Discovery cruise ship

Dining

Spirit of Discovery offers Saga’s widest ever selection of dining at sea. The Grand Dining Room offers authentic flavours of the world in opulent settings, with fine à la carte cuisine served at breakfast, lunch and dinner, and afternoon tea freshly prepared each day. The Verandah and Grill are two restaurants in one, with the daytime venue offering a delicious buffet lunch before transforming into a healthy, ‘à la minute’ show kitchen in the evening. Then there are the speciality restaurants: East to West and Coast to Coast. Impeccably presented Asian cuisine is the order of the day at the former, and in the latter, modern seafood dining that melts in your mouth.
