Bistro Seafood Grill

A hallmark for every cruise is the specialty dining options offered onboard. For all three of Dream Cruises’ ships, this is no exception. Foodie or not, a guest who has lunch or dinner at Prime Steakhouse & Seafood Grill by Mark Best will mark the meal as a highlight of the entire cruise holiday.

Mark Best hails from Sydney to sea with countless accolades. His first restaurant opened - on land! - in 1995, bringing him critical acclaim. In time, he went on to achieve a 10-year streak of holding 3 Hats in the Sydney Morning Herald Good Food guide, among other awards.

Onboard Explorer Dream, he brings his passion to Dream Cruises with the promise of delivering a contemporary amalgam of Australian flavours with an uncompromised dedication to fresh, high quality ingredients to his restaurant at sea & revolutionising onboard dining.

Dish by Mark Best

Through his culinary journeys through Southeast Asia, China, Japan, Korea and - of course - a bit of hometown flare with techniques acquired in Sydney, Best offers an unprecedented at-sea dining concept. The menu is brimming with the vert best of Australian produce with a cultural mix of Asian flavours, inspired by Best’s frequent culinary travels across the region & the cultural diversity of Sydney, his hometown.  

Onboard, the restaurant is deceivingly simple. Although casual in appearance, the menu is full of imagination and offers guests the chance to watch the magic happen in the open kitchen. Add the gentle breeze from the sea and guests have a recipe for an unforgettable meal, while they wine & dine under the southern stars enjoy the relaxing outdoor ambient surrounds.
