Dining aboard Royal Caribbean’s Ovation of the Seas, you will likely have an evening at the ship’s Pan-Asian complimentary restaurant Silk.
Entering the restaurant, it has perhaps the most interesting decor of the complimentary restaurants available on Ovation of the Seas. Instantly, you will get the sense this restaurant has Asian inspirations and it certainly feels the part.
Silk’s new menu offers a mixture of dishes from Asia primarily. However because of a reduced staffing at this cruise, most of these were not available.
The menu also offers a few generic dishes that you will find at all the complimentary restaurants, such as grilled chicken breast, pasta primavera and salmon. None of these are Asian, they are just the “fallback” menu choices that are always available every night, similar to the main dining room menu on other Royal Caribbean ships.
Baked french onion soup, gruyère cheese, herb croûton
Garden salad, mesclun greens, cherry tomatoes, balsamic vinaigrette
Creamy wild mushroom soup, rye bread croûtons, chives
Escargots à la bourguignonne, garlic parsley butter
Ricotta and spinach quiche, asparagus, arugula, marinated cherry tomatoes
Broiled atlantic salmon, saffron rice, broccoli, red grape tomatoes, lemon butter sauce
Pan-seared catch of the day, fondant potato, haricots verts, black truffle emulsion
Roasted prime rib, mashed potatoes, seasonal vegetables, horseradish au jus
This would be the worst of all the restaurants on board. I didn’t enjoy it. But because it shared the same menu as American Icon, so you can still come here and order the same.
