NCL Enclore "Onda" Restaurant Review

Recommended Posts

We just returned from a cruise to the Virgin Islands on the NCL Encore.  (A wonderful cruise, by the way).  While on the boat, we ate in several of the complimentary and specialty restaurants....all were good.  But after all was said and done, all four of us within our group agreed that our dining at Onda (by Scarpetta) was the finest and most enjoyable.  Everyone raved about their food.  I ordered "Mezzelune" and it was the lightest and best-tasting ravioli dish I have ever experienced in my life.  I had the "Panna Cotta" for dessert, and it was unbelievably good.  If you are on the NCL Specialty Restaurants dining plan, don't pass this restaurant up just because it's not the Italian restaurant you are familiar with on most other NCL ships.

We loved Onda too!  Ate there twice on our January 26th cruise.   

 

I especially enjoyed the short-rib appetizer and the Lobster Tagliatelle.  The Rosemary Lentil side dish was delicious too.  For dessert we also enjoyed the desserts we tried.  One was the Butterscotch Budini and the other was a chocolate cake.

 

For our upcoming April cruise we have reserved it again for two nights.  We have more dishes we want to try😊

Any chance of a picture of a menu - or a link to one?

You should find it by navigating through this link.  Look for the restaurant and there should be some click-on menus.  Not sure how up-to-date they are.  But the Onda one looked current from last week.

Thanks a lot for that - the menu reads well - let us hope it tastes as well (on Spirit next month).

$19.00 for a scoop of spaghetti? Ummmm ..... no. 

Challenge to anyone who has eaten there.

we are on Encore July 2020. Don’t plan on Onda unless someone can prove me wrong.

Onda is a great use for one of your SDP meals.  Also you can use one of your Platinum meals there.

Funny, I was going to ask if anyone tried the spaghetti and if it's comparable to Scarpetta. They're well known for it.
