Windstar Dining Information
Windstar Cruises are known for making guests feel that they are sailing on their own private yacht, and a hallmark of that is the classic resort environment on board. The attitude is understated, the feeling relaxed. Dining on board is a celebration of that very same individual spirit. Dining when and with whom is your choice as there are no formal reservations or table assignments.
The AmphorA restaurant serves an innovative menu of gourmet specialties and spotlights local dishes. Experience savory dishes such as Dover sole, duck a l'orange and lobster ravioli. Dessert is a decadent affair with dishes such as chocolate caramel mousse and dark cherry flambe. Windstar's extensive wine list has been designed to complement their menus and enhance flavors. On each ship, during each sailing, guests will be able to partake in special wine tastings led by the sommelier. If you choose to dine in, don a plush terry robe and call room service for the evening menu and wine list.
Exclusive to Wind Surf, Stella Bistro offers contemporary dishes with a French flair. The name, derived from the Latin word for star, was chosen as a tribute to the restaurant’s special dining experience. This unique restaurant is open for lunch and dinner.
Candles Grill, the ship's on deck restaurant, offers the chance to dine under the stars and has a menu of various steaks and skewers, all served with a delectable selection of sauces. The Veranda's outdoor seating was significantly expanded, creating an ideal mid-ship area for guests to enjoy breakfast and lunch alfresco. The interior includes a new buffet, new lighting, and epicurean style display counters. The Compass Rose was also reconfigured to open up expansively to the adjoining outdoor deck.
Main Dining Room Policies: There are no assigned tables or seating. Choosing when to dine and with whom are entirely up to you. (Seating usually begins at 7:30 p.m. and will be printed in the ship's daily program.)
