3 Cunard

Cunard won Best For Food at the Cruise International Awards 2012, and Michelin-starred chef Jean Marie-Zimmermann was the creative inspiration behind the four main restaurants on Queen Elizabeth and Queen Mary 2 and the new Verandah restaurant on Queen Victoria – which serves French cuisine, such as beef and lobster flambéed with Cognac and truffle, Parmesan fries ($10 supplement) and for dessert, Grand Marnier soufflé, vanilla pod ice cream and orange sauce (prices per dish, from $5 to $20). And the Todd English restaurant offers Mediterranean appetisers like scallop porcini tart or main dishes such as a rack of lamb with pistachio vinaigrette.
