  • Since March 2018, MS Regatta offers Oceania Cruises' new (bistro-style) dining concept. At lunch, the ship’s MDR (Main Dining Room) transforms into "The Bistro by Jacques” (aka “Jacques Bistro”). The new concept allows the MDR to serve lunch also on port days, as opposed to the traditional self-serve port day lunches at the buffet restaurant. This lunch-only French bistro serves an exclusive menu with signature dishes by the Oceania cruise company's executive chef Mr Jacques Pepin. The lunch menu is rotational and varies by season and itineraries, as most ingredients are locally sourced (at ports of call). The Bistro’s menu includes grilled and short-cooked meat meals, stews and sauces, gourmet soups and salads. The list of signature specialties features Dover Sole (aka common sole / flatfish), Blanquette de veau (veal ragout), Escargots a la Bourguignonne (snails in butter), croquemonsieur (fried boiled ham-and-cheese sandwich), Steak au poivres (aka pepper steak / filet mignon), roast chicken, gourmet burger, Salade Nicoise (tomatoes, hard-boiled eggs, olives, anchovies), Croque-Monsieur (baked ham and cheese sandwich), many vegetarian dishes, desserts, plus daily specials. The "Lunchtime at The Bistro" also offers 14 "Taste of the World" food selections, each dish featuring 6 different regional / local specialties inspired by the cruise ship's culinary team.
