Its former passengers would marvel at today’s menu, with its range of top-quality ingredients from around the world – smoked salmon from Norway, beef and lamb from Australia, duck from the US. And of course there’s an international wine list to match.The executive chef himself takes your order to discuss any particular preferences you may have.
