Dining on Silversea can be as relaxed or as formal as you wish, with an easy open seating style and lots of alternative options.

An intimate table for two by the window, or a social evening with new friends or old, you can dine however and whenever you please in the Restaurant, with sweeping sea views and an extensive menu.

La Terrazza

Here you will see Silversea's Italian heritage represented in food with ingredients that are fresh, sustainable and locally grown. La Terrazza is open for casual, buffet-style breakfast and lunch, and during the evening transforms into an à la carte traditional Italian restaurant.

Le Champagne

At the only Wine Restaurant by Relais & Châteaux at sea , fine wines are complemented by a set six course tasting menu of regionally-inspired dishes. Demand is high and a small charge applies.

Pool Bar and Grill

At this casual al fresco location the top deck of the Pool Bar & Grill is transformed into The Grill at night, with a fun, Black Rock Grill experience, allowing you to cook your own delicacies to taste, out under the stars.

Bars and lounges

Silversea Pool Grill Bar

Whether you are looking for a quiet indoor corner to read a book, a lively venue for drinks before dinner, or a place to gather with friends for a nightcap, Silver Shadow and Silver Whisper have so many options.

The relaxed and social ambience on board is perfect whatever your mood. After dinner, the Show Lounge comes live with lavish productions, intimate concerts or guest entertainers, whilst the Panorama Lounge is great for listening to the pianist, afternoon tea, or watching the world go by.
