  • Discoveries Restaurant
  • Prime C
  • Aqualina
  • Windows Cafe
  • The Patio

Discoveries Restaurant

The Discoveries Restaurant is Azamara Pursuit’s biggest eatery. It has a classic charm that harkens back to the grand dining rooms of old, yet there is also a subtle modern flare.

The service in Discoveries Restaurant is warm and friendly, what’s more there are great ocean views; especially from the seats at the stern.

For main course there was a succulent Lemon-Herb Marinated Chicken Beast as well as Greek Lamb Chops with Oven Roast Zucchini, Lemon Potatoes & Hummus. However, we especially enjoyed the Mushroom & Sausage Stuffed Qual with Herbed Israeli Cous Cous, Caramelized Baby Carrots & Demi-Glaze. If you have room for dessert we recommend the Fig Almond Olive Oil Cake, or the Kiwi & Strawberry Pavlova.

Prime C is a popular steakhouse restaurant on Azamara Pursuit. It serves succulent red meat, as well as delicious poultry and seafood. We rate Prime C as the best restaurant on Azamara Pursuit.

Starters include Classic Steak Tartare as well as a Smoked Fish Platter with Beetroot & Apple Relish, Quail Egg, Celeriac Remoulade & Salmon Roe was moreish. We also enjoyed a Lobster Salad with Granny Smith Apple & Cucumber Slaw.

Pork Chop with Caramalized Apple Chutney, Parsnip Chips & Grain Mustard Sauce.
We relished the Pork Chop with Apple Chutney & Parsnip Crisps.

For main course there is delicious Chateaubriand, not to mention Duck Leg Confit. The Herb-Coated Rack of Lamb is also excellent, so too is the Pork Chop with Caramalized Apple Chutney, Parsnip Chips & Grain Mustard Sauce.

Desserts include Mini Cinnamon-Sugar Donuts as well as Scotch Whiskey Chocolate Cake. There is also a tempting Key Lime Cheesecake with Meringue, Lime Jelly & Graham Crumble. Although the Grain-Nut Soufflé was somewhat disappointing.

It’s worth noting that the Prime C menu rarely changes, however there are nightly specials.

Dinner: 6:00pm – 9:00pm


Aqualina is an Italian-inspired specialty restaurant on Azamara Pursuit.

Starters include a Classic Caprese Salad of Seasonal Tomatoes & Buffalo Mozzarella as well as an excellent Beef Carpaccio. Although we highly recommend the Pancetta Wrapped Scallops with Crispy Squid & Butternut Squash.

If you enjoy a traditional Italian second course there are salads and soups, like a delicious Creamy White Bean Soup with Goat Cheese & Basil Oil.

There is pasta, fish and meat for main course. Indeed, the Lobster Tail with Squid Ink Pasta was our pick – mouthwatering. So too was the Grilled Mediterranean Sea Bass & Risotto with Sautéed Shrimp Calamari & Scallop, with Lemon-Butter Sauce. We also rate highly the Garlic, Lemon & Herb Crusted Veal Chop with Potatoes & Arugula-Pistachio Pesto and Maple Balsamic.

The Patio

Although the menu is small, it is satisfying. There are soups, salads and artisan breads for starters. Main course includes Grilled Curried Chicken Kebabs, Tournedos of Lamb Tenderloin and Bone-in Beef Striploin. We recommend the expertly grill seafood specials.

That said, the cuisine in Windows Cafe can be somewhat unimpressive. It is enjoyable, but not as much as other restaurants on board.
