We had a fabulous brunch at Palo. Recommended by veteran cruisers, it was a definite must-do and we discovered for ourselves why. Located on the 10th deck, the restaurant has a great view of the ocean while you dine. Your brunch, now $25 per person (an increase of $5 from when we booked) includes a glass of sparkling wine or a mimosa.
There are a few tables full of delicious food as well as a selection of entrees that you can order. My favourite table was the seafood one. Crab, jumbo shrimp cocktail, salmon mousse, cajun ahi tuna, scallops and caviar. It was amazing and I would have been happy with just this one table.
There was a huge table filled with cheese and crackers and another with Mediterranean dishes like hummus and sundried tomatoes and a really lovely tuna nicoise salad made with ahi tuna.
There were two tables filled with sweet treats. One with pastries like croissants and cinnamon buns, the other with items like panna cotta and cakes. It took a lot of restraint to not try it all but the couple that I did try definitely satisfied my sweet tooth.
We had a fantastic server from Croatia, Tony. He was helpful and attentive and provided amazing curstomer service, like we experience through out the ship.
If you have a little bit of time, I would definitely recommend Palo for brunch.
