  • Dining

    Dining on the MSC Splendida

    The ship has four restaurants and two buffet areas. The two-deck La Reggia Restaurant is set-table set-time venue with Mediterranean cuisine and always-available “slow food” – spaghetti, chicken breast, salmon fillets and vegetable of the day. The alternative restaurant Villa Verde Restaurant is also traditional, offering an assorted Mediterranean menu, including light choices and options that are always available. The ship's L'Olivo, an a la carte speciality restaurant, provides food from 14 countries located in the Mediterranean region.

    For spicy Mexican cuisine Tex Mex Santa Fe is the right choice. The full-view kitchen completes the traditional atmosphere of this restaurant. All the alternative dining venues charge on an à la carte basis at reasonable prices. Casual breakfasts and lunches are available in a large self-serve buffet eatery. Other cafeteria eateries are Bora Bora and Pago Pago.
