There are four restaurants on board the M/S Eckerö, with a focus on personal service and locally-produced food. About 80% of the food on board is prepared from scratch and our chefs ensure that the raw products are of the highest quality. The buffet restaurant Bornholm provides a popular archipelago buffet based on the theme of the season – there is the large archipelago buffet, the Easter buffet, the game buffet and the large Christmas buffet. The morning departure at 8.30 a.m. serves breakfast at sea and the 10 a.m. service a magnificent brunch. The buffet restaurant has capacity for 270 people. A delicious à la carte menu is available in the Restaurang Rospiggen, which can seat 69 guests. The Kafé Käringsund serves simple home-cooked food, prawn sandwiches and coffee with cakes and pastries.
There is entertainment in the bar on deck 8 on most services. Many who travel with us choose to hold their meetings on the outward journey so as to be able to enjoy our archipelago buffet on the way back. Take the opportunity to shop in the duty-free shop, which has an extensive range at fantastic sea prices.
