The Pinnacle Grill, Tamarind, and Canaletto Restaurants onboard the Eurodam

The Pinnacle Grill:

Holland_food_steakLocated midship on Lower Promenade Deck, classic elegance awaits you at your reservations-only table complete with Frette linens, Bvlgari Rosenthal china, and Reidel stemware. Your wine list on the Eurodam's Pinnacle Grill is the best to be found on your cruise! Dungeness crab, Seared Duck Breast, Smoked Salmon and main entrees including Sterling Silver Beef, King Salmon, lamb, and chicken are expertly prepared for you. There are delectable vegetarian selections, but if you're a steak lover, you've also come to the best place on your cruise! Here you'll find the best of the Pacific Northwest for your dining pleasure, and for your wine palate. Baked Alaska, Grand Marnier Chocolate Volcano, and other delectable dessert choices satisfy any gourmet sweet tooth! Advanced reservations are required. It is best to book prior to boarding your cruise, or, as soon as you get onboard the Eurodam -- the Pinnacle Grill is very popular and will sell-out on many evenings. 

Tamarind:

One innovation in the design of the Eurodam is the location of Tamarind, an Asian fusion restaurant. Up on Observation Deck, be prepared for wonderful views, excellent food, and superb service. While lunch is free, reservation dinner options include Tai beef salad, Nigiri Salmon, Satay, Sushi, and Sashimi. Water (fish), Wood (food served on wood), Earth (vegie choices), and Fire (hot and spicy selections), are brought to you with sides such as sake braised oyster and shitake mushrooms. Specialty ice cream dishes and Ginger Banana Bread Pudding are examples of desserts. For a slightly higher per person cost, enjoy the Tamarind Rijsttafel which is the Dutch adaptation of Indonesian rice dishes. Red Snapper in Banana Leaves, Satay choices, steamed vegetables and fried tofu with peanut sauce, and various beef, chicken, duck and lamb are prepared for you via Master Chef Rudi Sodamin.

Canaletto:

Holland_dining_canalettoFrom 5:30 to 9:30pm, Canaletto onboard the Eurodam is a little bit of Italy tucked away on Lido deck. Angel Hair with Scallops, Butternut Squash and Asparagus Risotto, and Toscana Flank Steak are among the classic Italian dishes served here. Enjoy the tiramisu creations and gelato for dessert. Reviews for this restaurant are quite positive. Reservations are suggested for Canaletto.

An Evening at Le Cirque:

"An Evening at Le Cirque" at the Pinnacle Grill, created by Holland America Master Chef Rudi Sodamin and Le Cirque's own Executive Chef Craig Hopson, is a highlight now featured on many Holland America Line cruises. Emphasis here is the fact that the Pinnacle typically offers this experience for one evening on your Holland America cruise.

Le Cirque, created by Sirio Maccioni in the early 1970's, is a family owned affair. Established in New York City, Le Cirque restaurants now include locations in Las Vegas and the Dominican Republic. A treat to the palate and the eye, Maccioni, his wife, and his sons, assure their guests the very finest of French gourmet dining! Recipient of the James Beard award, Le Cirque has maintained globally renowned status over the decades. Their lobster salad, soups including the Sweet Corn, and an array of main courses such as "Chicken Under a Brick" (of vegetables), Rack of Lamb, and Wild Halibut delightfully support Le Cirque's high status in the eyes of gourmands world-wide. Le Cirque's Chateaubriand is both delectable and generous in quantity. Leave room for their signature dessert, Creme Brulee Le Cirque. While Holland America dutifully recreates the Le Cirque atmosphere, restaurant aficionados will note the absence of some of the restaurants' whimsy in decor. The dining plates, however, include the French circus theme and your service is brought to you by those ever diligent Holland America staff in a manner true to Le Cirque expectations. Expect a 39 USD charge in addition to the Pinnacle's 25 USD, and you will need to make your reservations as early as you can for this "not to be missed" experience on your cruise. So far, the only regrets we've heard about are from those who did NOT book for an Evening at Le Cirque on their cruise!

Tips for The Pinnacle Gril, Tamarind and Caneletto on the Eurodam

  • Pinnacle Grill Menu
  • Tamarind Menu
  • Canaletto Menu
  • The Pinnacle Grill is available for lunch and dinner by reservation only.
  • The Tamarind serves a free lunch which is a sampler from the evening menu.
  • We recommend making your pre-confirmation reservations online (during the check-in process) or with Holland America's Ship Services at 1-800-541-1576 as soon as possible after booking.
  • Upon embarkation, you will be asked to reconfirm the exact time and date of your reservation.
  • This is a dinner only experience at the Pinnacle Grille from 6:00pm to 9:00pm.
  • Dinner at the Tamarind is from 5:30pm to 9:30pm.
  • There is no smoking in the Pinnacle Grill or Tamirind.
  • The Pinnacle Grill has a charge of  20 USD fee per diner and does include gratuity.
  • How much should I tip at the alternative dining restaurants (The Pinnacle Grill, The Tamarind and Canaletto) on the Eurodam? First, bear in mind that all alcoholic beverages that you pay for will have a gratuity added. The cover charge does include gratuity, however, you may wish to consider giving an extra gratuity to the waiter or waitress who has served you. An appropriate amount is to estimate the value of the meal you ordered if you ordered it on land and tip 15-20% based on that cost. If you feel that the value of the meal was $50 were you to order it in a land-based restaurant, you should tip $7.50-$10. It is certainly your discretion not to tip, but, the waiters serving you are some of the best on the ship and should be rewarded if they provided you with an exceptional dining experience.
  • Lunch is 10 USD at the Pinnacle Grill. Specialty drinks, beer, wine, and soft drinks can be purchased from the current bar menu.
  • The  Caneletto 15 USD fee per diner does include gratuity.
  • The Tamarind Rijsttafel is 20 USD per person. Specialty drinks, beer, wine, and soft drinks can be purchased from the current bar menu.
  • You'll feel most comfortable at the Pinnacle Grill supper club in elegant attire.
  • Smart casual attire is acceptable at Tamirind and Caneletto.
