All you could want for Christmas is at Atlantis, The Palm this December. Cirque de Cuisine: Christmas Edition is back, and it’s exciting cuisine and free-flowing beverages wherever you look. 

The annual sell-out festive bash offers Christmas revellers a taste of ten world-class restaurants as well as festive entertainment at every turn. It’s the only place to be on Thursday 9th December for four hours of non-stop fun, including free-flowing champagne from 7 pm until 11 pm. 

Guests can wander across 10 globally renowned restaurants and sample from a range of signature dishes, live cooking stations, lavish buffets, and live entertainment. Accessible to all Cirque De Cuisine ticket holders, the venues are located in two-minute proximity of one another.

The experience is not unlike a handcrafted gift from Santa himself for all culinary aficionados. Explore some of the worlds’ top restaurants, including Nobu by Nobu Matsuhisa, Gordon Ramsay’s Bread Street Kitchen & Bar, Gordon Ramsay’s Street Pizza, Chris Malone’s award-winning underwater restaurant Ossiano, Ronda Locatelli by Giorgio Locatelli, and the Michelin star Cantonese restaurant, Hakkasan.

Christmas tree-lined avenues beckon guests into the gastronomic fairyland, with entertainment at every turn featuring spellbinding performances, gravity-defying stunts, and elaborate costumes. Adding to the magic is Santa’s grotto submerged in The Lost Chambers Aquarium, live music, DJs in all restaurants, and of course, magicians and Santa’s dancing elves.

A gourmet experience like no other, the number of signature dishes on offer will leave you spoilt for choice! Guests can start with a selection of antipasti from Ronda Locatelli, followed by a main of Nobu’s famous melt-in-the-mouth black cod with a side of avocado tacos. 

If Gordon Ramsay’s menu seems to be calling you instead, you can opt for a quintessential British Beef Wellington with truffle mash at Bread Street Kitchen. Otherwise, settle into Seafire for succulent flame-grilled steaks and seafood. 

The lost chambers is designed as a maze of underwater corridors and passageways providing a journey through ancient atlantis.
