Based on the seasons best ingredients, the chefs create either three-course dinners or lavish buffets. Being a coastal voyage, seafood dominates∘ the menu, accompanied with fresh vegetables and delicately flavoured sauces. Each dinner ends with traditional desserts, like home-made cakes, puddings, berries or sorbet. Breakfast and lunch is served buffet style, while dinner is a set dinner.
