A space which was once occupied by the QE2’s outdoor swimming pool on the lower aft deck, is now home to newly launched Mediterranean restaurant The Pavilion. Boasting indoor and al fresco dining options with picturesque vistas of the Mina Rashid Yacht Club and Dubai’s glistening skyline, it’s a treat for the stomach and the eyes.

The menu comprises a wide selection of salads such as Mista, Grace and Libanesa; a dedicated pizza section featuring seafood pizza; succulent pastas including Rigatoni Al Buffalo, Spaghetti Al Putinesca and Seafood Linguini.
The Queen Elizabeth Refresher, a mocktail made of pineapple juice, fresh passion fruit and lemon juice is the perfect sidekick for the main course.

Other favourites include the 8oz Beef Ribeye, Grilled Giant Garlic Prawns, Pan-fried Red Snapper, Thalassina Sta Karvouna and the Greek Charcuterie Board. For the sweetest ending, try the Greek Custard Pudding, Rose Rice Pudding and Greek Orange Filo Cake.
What's more, every Friday the Pavilion deck is transformed into an extension of the QE2 brunch offering culinary masterpieces, BBQ cooking stations and live music. Are you on board?
