Food is a big part of cruising, and we know our fellow cruisers are always eager to see what is available at the different restaurants onboard. So, we are back from a recent sailing on Royal Caribbean’s newest ship and have put together this Odyssey of the Seas Restaurant Guide with menus. We have pictures, menus, and all the details for each venue.

Odyssey of the Seas Restaurant Guide With Menus

Complimentary Odyssey of the Seas Restaurants

There are several dining options that are included in your cruise fare with Royal Caribbean. These include the main dining room, the popular Windjammer buffet, and several other casual options. With so many great offerings, you certainly do not have to pay extra for dining (if you don’t want to).

If you are staying in a suite, you will also have access to the exclusive restaurant, Coastal Kitchen, for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Main Dining Room (Decks 3 and 4)

Unlike the previous Quantum Class ships that were designed with four smaller dining venues, Odyssey of the Seas has one central main dining room located on decks 3 and 4.

This 2-story venue has an open ceiling, with a massive art installation in the Via on deck 5 completing the décor.

This main dining room on Odyssey of the Seas offers the traditional cruise dining experience with first seating at 5:30 pm and second seating at 8 pm. Cruisers can also opt for My Time Dining which is available from 6:30 pm to 9 pm daily.

The MDR also serves breakfast most mornings from around 7:30 am to 9 am and lunch on sea days from around 11:30 am to 1 pm.

Regardless of whether you opt for traditional dining or My Time Dining, the dinner menus are the same. These options do rotate each evening, with a set list of Classics dishes available every night.

On a traditional 7-night cruise, there will be two formal nights with “lobster night” taking place on the second formal night.

The order of the menus and when these formal nights occur vary based on the ports of call. Below is the list of menus from our recent 5-night sailing on Odyssey of the Seas.

If you are looking for the specific menu rotation on your sailing, check the Royal Caribbean app for all the details.

Located on the pool deck, this Mexican venue offers tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and nachos with a custom salsa bar. El Loco Fresh is open midday for lunch starting around 11:30 am and remaining open until 6-8 pm.

Windjammer (Deck 14)

If you have cruised on Royal Caribbean before, then you are very familiar with the Windjammer. Unlike some cruise lines, there is no Odyssey of the Seas restaurant menus for this buffet.

This casual, complimentary buffet is open most of the day. The Windjammer typically serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. However, since COVID and reduced capacities, the Windjammer has not been open for dinner on most sailings.

For breakfast (approximately 6:30 am-11 am), you can find your typical selections including fruits, breakfast pastries, cereals, and hot menu items such as scrambled eggs, bacon, and sausage.

For lunch (approximately 11:30 am to 3 pm), you will find a selection of salads, cold cuts and sandwiches, grilled items, and other hot dishes which vary slightly each day of the cruise.

Sprinkles

In addition to all the other snacks you can enjoy around the ship, there is also the poolside ice cream station. Sprinkles offers soft serve selections throughout the day.

Specialty Restaurants on Odyssey of the Seas

While Royal Caribbean does offer a number of complimentary dining venues, its cruise ships also feature a number of specialty restaurants. These restaurants do all have up-charges; though, they make for a special night out during your cruise.

If you plan to dine at a few of these venues, the Unlimited Dining Plan is a good value. The only downside to this plan is that you can not make your dining reservations pre-cruise; you can only do so once onboard the ship.

Giovanni’s Italian Kitchen (Deck 5)

Odyssey of the Seas features the completely re-imagined Giovanni’s Italian Kitchen. This restaurant first debuted on Freedom of the Seas in 2020 and is a new take on a guest favorite, Giovanni’s Table.

This rustic venue serves up all the Italian classics. The menu features made-to-order pizzas prepared in an open kitchen concept, classic pasta dishes, mouth-watering entrées and desserts, and complimentary limoncello.

There is even a small a la carte food menu at the adjacent Giovanni’s Wine bar. Giovanni’s is open daily 5:30 to 9 pm for dinner and on sea days from noon to 1:30 pm for lunch. The Wine Bar serves up food most nights from around 2 to 9:30 pm.

Teppanyaki (Deck 14)

Odyssey of the Seas debuted a new restaurant for Royal Caribbean, Teppanyaki. This new dining venue is similar to teppanyaki experiences on other cruise lines, or to Izumi Hibachi on some ships in the fleet.

For a set price, cruisers are treated to an energetic dinner and show. At Teppanyaki, you get a front row seat while the chef prepares your multi-course feast on an open grill paired with some comedic entertainment.

The meal includes a salad and miso soup to start. You are then treated to fried rice and grilled vegetables before your entrée. Entrée selections include combinations of chicken, beef, and seafood.

Finally, don’t forget to save room for dessert. Dessert selections include the popular mochi sampler and crispy sesame balls.

Playmakers Sports Bar and Arcade (Deck 16)

The newly popular sports bar on Royal Caribbean ships, Playmakers can be found among the Odyssey of the Seas restaurants. We really like the venue’s new location on deck 16 overlooking all the action in the SeaPlex.

Playmakers Sports Bar and Arcade is the perfect place to grab a handcrafted brew and watch a game on the big screens. There is also pub food available at a la carte prices like chicken wings, nachos, and the signature Playmakers burger.

Playmakers serves food most days from around 2 pm (11:30 am on sea days) to 11 pm.
