La Trattoria Buffet - Deck 10 Portofino Aft

This room is disappointing. Dark and dismal as all windows to port and starboard are covered by the lifeboats. The flooring is wooden in the main area, leading to very high noise levels. There is only a small 'dog-leg' to the entrance which is carpeted. The drinks stations to aft lead out to the Alfresco Café, where one can enjoy the views over the stern under a canopy. BBQs are held out here at lunch.
Open for breakfast and lunch [and dinner the first evening for late arrivals in Dubai]. There are 2 serving areas, one each side. As the main entrance is to starboard, use the port area as it nearly always has few people, while there is a queue to starboard.
A wide variety of food is served, to suit both Southern and Northern European tastes. Omelette stations for breakfast and eggs anyway you wish. Hot food, cereals, fruit, cold meats, cheese and Danish. Coffee is good and strong. Juices are the horrible packet mix type.
Lunches have a main 'dish' of the day, but also many other choices, soft serve ice cream machine and lots of desserts, but not the chocolate gooey type. There are only a handful of photos, some of which are blurred but left in to show the area.
