⭐ Upcoming themed evenings ⭐

Occasionally we have different themed evenings at the Vanilla Pod.

These special events are designed to offer a unique dining experience that goes beyond our regular 'fine dining' menu. From a 'Taste of the Sea' to Italian nights and everything in between, each themed evening is carefully crafted to showcase the flavours and cuisine of a particular culture or region.
