The main dining venue of the Costa Mediterranea is the Restaurant Degli Argentieri, which consists of two levels, both of which are lit by globes that look like balloons suspended from the ceiling. There are two sittings for the evening meal and there is assigned seating. However, open seating prevails for breakfast and lunch. The selections of food change daily and the evening meal always includes an Italian selection with the cuisine from a different region being highlighted each night.

The alternative restaurant on the Costa Mediterranea is the Club Medusa. You won’t turn into a three-headed monster in this room, which is very elegant indeed. The cuisine is superb from the appetizers to the desserts. There is a cover charge for dining at this venue and you do need to make your reservations in advance. Once the dinner is over, the balcony of the restaurant becomes a cigar bar where anyone can have a smoke.
Buffet is the offering of the day at the Perla del lago Restaurant, which is located on Deck 9. This is a very huge restaurant with themed stations for various types of cuisine. There are soft serve machines scattered throughout the venue, which eliminates long lines when you are waiting for ice cream. You should take the time to explore all the stations before you make your final decision.



You can still have the convenience of enjoying a late night buffet on the Costa Mediterranea – one of the few cruise ships that still continue to have this tradition. The location of this buffet changes each night. One night it may be on the deck and another night in the galley.

Room service is available 24 hours a day. There is a menu in each cabin of the food offerings available with this service, which does include soup, salad and sandwiches. Only continental breakfasts are served in this manner to those in regular cabins on the ship, but you can have an espresso or cappuccino with this meal. Those passengers in the suites on the Costa Mediterranea have the added convenience of being able to order from the full-service menu at any time, including a hot breakfast.
