Relax with your friends and family on the scenic deck of Emzara’s Kitchen, our two-story buffet restaurant, with a spectacular view of the Ark. The restaurant is located outside the Ark, so you will want to grab something to eat before or after you board.
Adjacent to the Ark, the two-story themed Emzara’s Kitchen is an award-winning buffet-style restaurant with a variety of delicious entrees, salads, and desserts (including food-allergy sensitive options). There’s even a special kid-friendly buffet!
