Open for lunch and dinner each day, Steakhouse at The Verandah celebrates the best of land and sea, with prime ingredients sourced from both sides of the Atlantic. It’s a theme that continues behind the bar, where cocktails inspired by New York and London offer a nod to Cunard’s Transatlantic itineraries.

Lunchtimes are a relaxed affair with an informal dress code and a slimmed down menu offering guest favourites such as our Signature Cunarder burger with bone marrow mayonnaise.
