During our 4-Night Bahamian cruise onboard the Disney Wish, my wife and I enjoyed a lovely dinner at Palo Steakhouse, an exclusive Beauty and the Beast-themed restaurant reserved for guests 18 years and older.
And instead of opting for the $45 per person prix fixe menu, we decided to order off the a la carte menu because there were some great options not found on the set menu.
Palo Steakhouse À la carte Menu Review
Here’s a quick review of our dinner, as well as a video price breakdown.
As mentioned, we opted for the a la carte menu, mainly because we wanted different appetizer and steak options.
The meal started with a piece a gnocchi.
Followed by some fresh bread and crackers.
The first appetizer was calamari and shrimp, which was very tasty.
But the star of the show was this butternut squash with buffalo mozzarella, amaretti, sage brown butter, and basil. It was incredible.
My wife got the 6 oz Snake River Farms Black Wagyu Tenderloin, which was very tender and flavorful, even when cooked to well done.
And I opted for the 6 oz Japanese A5 Wagyu Strip Loin. Whenever I see anything A5 on the menu, I always consider getting it until I see that the price is normally listed by the ounce. However, to my surprise, this steak was only $45 for 6 ounces which is an insane deal, so there was zero hesitation on my part.
This steak was so tender and delicious but I do think that it needed to be cooked to medium. The server recommend medium rare, but I swear, the other few occasions I’ve had this type of steak, they always recommend a medium temperature.
Regardless, the marbling and fat were just perfect.
For sides, we shared the Fried Yukon Potato, as well as the Cavatappi Pasta, which was basically mac and cheese and a mountain of breadcrumbs.
And to end the night, we got the famous chocolate soufflé that melted in your mouth.
Overall, the meal was fantastic, the service was quick and attentive, and the ambience was sophisticated and beautiful. For the price, it was well worth it.
- Moscato = $10.75
- Calamari = $13
- Agnolotti = $12
- Japanese A5 Wagyu Strip Loin = $45
- Snake River Black Wagyu Tenderloin = $30
- Fried Yukon Potatoes = $4
- Cavatappi Pasta aka Mac and Cheese = $4
- Chocolate Soufflé = $10
Total = $151.93 (includes 18% auto-gratuity)
Is there a discount at Palo?
Technically, there isn’t a discount, but there is a Castaway Club benefit.
If you are a Platinum Castaway Cay Club member, you get a free meal for yourself and each guests staying in your stateroom at Palo or Palo Steakhouse on every cruise.
The credit is $45 per person and you can use it on either the a la carte menu or the prix fixe menu.
Since I finally achieved Platinum on the previous cruise, we essentially got $90 worth of free food, which was pretty awesome.
How much does it cost to eat at Palo for brunch or dinner?
Palo costs $45 per person when ordering from the prix fixe menu and $70 for the wine pairing. They do also offer an a la carte menu with very reasonable pricing. This applies to both Palo and Palo Steakhouse.
