Restaurants on The Coastal Express
Reflecting our love of food and Norway, each of our onboard restaurants is named after an aspect of the Norwegian coast. Together, they offer our guests an exciting exploration of Norwegian cuisine.
Breakfast - served from 7am
Start the day with a selection of hot dishes and a buffet of fresh bread, cereal, fruit, yoghurt, smoothies, juices, energy shots, porridge, salmon, eggs, and pancakes.
Lunch - served from 12pm
Using local, homegrown produce and the best ingredients of the season, our chefs cook up delicious plated dishes or sumptuous buffets for your lunch. For sustainable, plant-based meals, expect a great selection of vegan dishes marked on the menu.
Dinner – served from 6pm
Enjoy a three-course dinner and choose from different dishes each day of your voyage, including a selection of meat, fish, and plant-based options. Top off dinner with traditional desserts such as homemade cakes, sorbets, or pudding, often with a coulis made from local berries.
Dine in style at Kysten, our à la carte option. Kysten means ‘Coast’ in Norwegian. This name reflects the restaurant’s simple, elegant, and contemporary style. Enjoy a five-course meal crafted by our most skilled chefs who use the finest ingredients the Norwegian coast has to offer.
Expect plump scallops hand-picked by divers off the coast of Helgeland, extra tender reindeer sirloin, and juicy langoustine garnished with local butter and wild herbs. Rest assured that the seafood is fresh, the meats are free range, and the cheeses award-winning.
In the evening, you can choose from 14 delicious dishes to put together your own five-course menu. Accompany your meal with a bottle of wine from our expertly selected list or try a wine package where our best wine tasters have paired wine to the food. If you are travelling with us on the Platinum fare, you can eat all three meals every day here during your voyage.
The name of our onboard bistro can be translated from the Norwegian as ‘wharf’. As you’ll probably see during your voyage with us, wharves on the Norwegian coast are typically busy places bustling with workers loading and unloading cargo, without much time for a relaxing sit-down meal.
It’s fitting then that Brygga serves easy-to-eat yet satisfying dishes such as fresh salads, sandwiches, wraps, and good old comfort food like freshly prepared pizzas and gastro burgers. Try the soup of the day, sirloin steak, or grilled salmon, and finish with locally-inspired desserts and sweet cakes.
Among these crowd pleasers is our mouth-watering signature shrimp sandwich, served with eggs, dill mayonnaise, and a wedge of lemon – a pure Norwegian classic.
Let the aroma of freshly baked cakes and pastries guide you to Multe. This onboard bakery serves open sandwiches, called smørbrød, piled with generous helpings of toppings. Treat yourself to fresh smoothies, a choice of coffees, and luscious ice cream direct from Lofoten.
The name Multe means ‘cloudberry’ in Norwegian. Jam made from this rare Arctic berry can be sampled in the bakery, often served with waffles and generous dollops of whipped cream or ice cream.
All the favourite ice cream flavours are present, plus a few Norwegian inspired ones which you might like to try, like the brunost – brown cheese – ice cream. Two scoops or three?
What really makes the Explorer Bar stand out is the atmosphere of the surrounding lounge and the panoramic views through the floor-to-ceiling windows. Order from a range of hot and cold beverages, relax in a comfortable armchair, chat with a drink in hand, and watch the world go by.
The Explorer Bar serves premium coffee, organic teas, hot chocolate, fruit juices, various Norwegian beers, red, white, and rosé wine, and a collection of Norwegian aquavit that would make any spirit lover jump for joy.
Enjoy along with a selection of snacks, such as grilled sandwiches using local ham and cheese, or even a Norwegian speciality: dried fish!
