Overview

The main dining room on the Balmoral, Ballindaloch is where the food for the two other restaurants on the ship is derived.


Ballindaloch serves the same food as Avon and Spey restaurants. It has a larger seating layout to allow for more guests. Dining is formal and food is served on a schedule. This is also where the special Gala Night dinner is served. The wine list pulls from a global economy of vineyards.

Lunch / Dinner

Several of the options on the shipwide menu are pictured here. French inspired versions of international cuisine make up the food selection at Ballindaloch.

Dessert

Desserts seem to be the most inspired servings at Ballindaloch and the other similar restaurants. Fruit, chocolate and sugar free selections are available at all three restaurants.
