We chose the Shrimp Po’ Boy and Sticky Pork Ribs. Of the two dishes, the Shrimp Po’ Boy was the better one with plenty of shrimp and good mix of flavours. It wasn’t the easiest thing to eat but definitely recommended.

The Sticky Pork Ribs were a bit tougher than expected and were just OK.

Drinks served at the 6th Street Diner are an additional fee but are included in the drinks package as long as they’re within the price limit.

Some wines by the glass, classic cocktails, non-alcoholic cocktails and soft drinks are included in the Classic Drinks Package.

We opted to try two of the sodas: root beer and blueberry muffin soda for £3.50 each (we didn’t have a drinks package). Having never tried a root beer before, we weren’t sure what to expect but Germolene did spring to mind when we tasted it!

Appetisers at the 6th Street Diner

We felt that there was a good selection of appetisers to choose from for dinner at the 6th Street Dinner on Arvia.

We opted for the Reuben Croquettes, New England Clam Chowder and Corn Tortilla Trio. All dishes had lots of flavour. We didn’t expect the tortillas to be ‘bitesize’ but it’s a great option for those not wanting to fill up too early – and save more room for dessert!

The main courses were well presented and we particularly liked the quirky messages on the tableware.

The steak was cooked to our preference. The Shrimp n Grits was a bit of a risk but definitely worth it, the cornmeal was smooth and buttery.

Dessert Menu at the 6th Street Diner

If you have room for dessert, there are five to choose from!

The Fried Apple Hush Puppies are best described as sweet doughnut balls and weren’t too greasy at all. This dessert might be good for sharing.

The Key Lime Pie was definitely more like a lemon meringue pie and the top layer resembled a marshmallow.

Brooklyn Blackout CakeDark chocolate sponge and rich chocolate buttercream served with whipped cream (v/gf)
Coconut and Rum CakeRum-soaked coconut madelines, mango and lime salsa, coconut ice cream and pineapple rum gel (vegan friendly/gf/ls)

6th Street Diner Dinner Drinks Menu

The drinks menu is the same as the brunch drinks menu, you will find the same wine, beer and cider available. The same cocktails are also available whether you dine here at lunch or dinner.

If there’s something you particularly like to drink that’s not available on the 6th Street Diner menu, you can always bring it with you from Anderson’s Bar nearby.

Final Thoughts and Review of 6th Street Diner Menu on P&O Arvia

The 6th Street Diner is definitely a step in a completely different direction for P&O Cruises. We were excited to try it on our Arvia cruise and dined here for one lunch and dinner.

Arvia has certainly been designed to cater for a younger demographic and the 6th Street Diner is a new casual alternative to the traditional main dining rooms.

We also appreciated that this is a later breakfast option if you didn’t feel like braving the busy buffet mid-mornings.

The restaurant itself is very well decorated to make you feel like you’re stepping into an authentic American Diner from the 50s, complete with a jukebox and rock and roll music playing. There’s a playfulness about it from the pop art decor to choosing your own song on the jukebox.

It feels like it could almost be a low-cost specialty dining restaurant given the theme and the quality of the dishes. If there had been a small cover charge we would not have been shocked.

We definitely found some hits and misses throughout the menus but overall this restaurant was a refreshing change for P&O Cruises.
