If you’ve had the pleasure of dining at Palo, the signature adult-exclusive restaurant on every Disney ship, it’s likely the mere mention of its delectable cuisine leaves your mouth watering.

A stand-out addition to the dinner selection is a whole roasted chicken, marinated for 24 hours in lemon, sea salt and rosemary.

From the seafood selection, a piquant Dover sole is filleted tableside and served with regional staples like capers, anchovies, sundried tomatoes and thyme potatoes. An exquisite Prosecco and black truffle reduction gives new life to classic sea scallops. And, returning to the menu with a new twist, seared ahi tuna steak is prepared with blanched green beans, roasted new potatoes and peppered quail eggs.

Sweet endings are a Palo specialty, and the enhanced dessert menu includes a variety of warm, cold, sweet and tangy offerings. These include light, creamy tiramisu—a coffee-infused classic—and a limoncello tart for a refreshing pop of citrus. One thing that hasn’t changed is the signature Palo chocolate soufflé, prepared fresh to-order and served piping hot with luscious vanilla bean and chocolate sauces, plus a scoop of ice cream for good measure.

Up next, I’ll give you a taste of Palo’s wine pairing menu, boasting all-new dishes for a fresh take on this guest-favorite experience. Buon appetito!
