Dining & bars on Pont-Aven
(COVID-19) To ensure the safety of both our passengers and crew, life on board has changed - new procedures are in place and facilities may be limited.
Pont-Aven offers all the dining options you would expect on a cruise ship, from the à la carte Flora Restaurant to the self-service restaurants, La Belle Angèle and Le Café du Festival, with food freshly prepared by our skilled French chefs.
Main restaurant - Le Flora
Pont-Aven's elegant à la carte restaurant, Le Flora, is situated at the aft of the ship where you can watch the sea slide by as well as observe our chefs in action in the open kitchen.
We work hard with regional producers and our brilliant chefs to create seasonal menus that reflect the regions we serve. This year things are a little different but our same standards and sprinkling of “je ne sais quoi” throughout the menus ensure a memorable dining experience.
This summer we’re offering a new 2 or 3 course dinner menu in our A La Carte restaurants (priced at £24.95 and £29.95 respectively). We’re sad we can’t offer our famous buffet dinner in the current climate but think you’re going to love our exciting new menu.
We’re pleased we can still offer delicious and varied breakfasts in restaurants too and this year we’re adding a Brunch service too for those who want a slightly later breakfast in comfortable restaurant surroundings. This will be served until late morning when the restaurant will be closed until dinner service begins (there are alternatives on all our ships for lunch).
Another innovation for this summer is the introduction of a QR code for menus, paper versions will be available but we think using QR codes will be a quick and efficient alternative while social distancing and limiting physical contact remains vital.
Self-service restaurant - La Belle Angèle
La Belle Angèle is Pont-Aven's self-service restaurant which offers a fantastic choice of foods from around the world, as well as French favourites such as our minute steaks, cooked to your liking on the spot. There's also a salad buffet, great choice of desserts and drinks, including wines and beers to accompany your meal. Diners can sit within the self-service area, or enjoy a larger choice of seating in Le Café du Festival that provides views from the front of the ship.
Café - Le Café du Festival
If you don't feel up to a full meal, the Café du Festival serves sandwiches, cakes, pastries plus hot and cold drinks. There is an adjoining a large seating area with flat screen televisions at the front of the ship which is great for families too as the children's soft play area is situated close by.
Bars on Pont-Aven
Main lounge bar - Le Grand Pavois
Pont-Aven's main lounge bar, Le Grand Pavois, is located towards the front of the ship and serves a range of cocktails as well as beers and wines, hot and cold drinks plus snacks. With seating on two decks joined by a large sweeping staircase, the bar area has a real cruise ship feel. It is also the focal point for entertainment provided by magicians, singers and bands and there are a number of flat screen televisions showing big sports matches and news updates to ensure that you never get bored.
Piano bar - Le Fastnet
This stylish cocktail bar, adjacent to Le Flora Restaurant, is the perfect place for an aperitif or a post-dinner digestif and the relaxed mood is enhanced by the pianist.
Pool bar - Les Finistères
During the summer season and on busy off-season crossings you can enjoy Pont-Aven's pool and leisure area with the bar, Les Finistères, serving wines, beers and soft drinks.
