Dining and Entertainment

At the Waterfront Restaurant you can opt for a full English breakfast, savour a leisurely lunch and enjoy a delightful five course dinner. Breakfasts and lunches are generally served on an open seating basis. However, two fixed time sittings are operated for dinner when your attentive waiting staff will welcome you each evening. Perhaps opt to dine at the Fusion or Grill speciality restaurants or sample the delights of a sumptuous dinner at the ‘Chef’s Table’ (supplementary charge). If you prefer something more casual, the Plantation Bistro is open every day for buffet style breakfast, lunches and dinner, and when the weather is fine, the Alfresco Grill beckons. There are extensive lounge areas including the Palladium Show Lounge with big show entertainment & cabarets, the Captain’s Club, Connexions, Raffles and Taverners Pub & Casino.
