Alternatively, inquire about the internationally renowned Titanic Tasting Menu. The Titanic Menu is a recreation of the last menu served in the first class restaurant on board the Iconic Ship. Chef Conor has meticulously re-created the menu that was served to the renowned passengers such as Benjamin Guggenheim and the un-sinkable Molly Brown. The menu is as sumptuous as you'd expect, with nine lavish courses boasting delights from the Edwardian Era.
The Titanic Menu is available for private parties and, due to popular demand, for couples and small groups on various dates (please contact for details). This unique dining experience is served in the beautiful period dining room, with views of Belfast Lough from where Titanic would have sailed down the Lough on her maiden voyage in April, 1912.
