Description

We are looking for a team of experienced chefs to take on the challenge of running our busy restaurants. Producing quality dishes, our chefs are team players looking for a challenge who love what they do and are excited to share it with our guests. With the majority of our guests spending most of their day in the club, food is an integral part of their holiday. Our kitchen team provide an array of exciting varied meal options to suit all tastes, for breakfast, lunch and dinner. 

Last summer we revamped food at Peligoni with the introduction of two exciting new restaurant concepts. This year, we’re going a step further and creating a third dining space in our stunning Courtyard which will feature a variety of barbeque dishes cooked over an open fire complemented by freshly prepared salads and sides. The Terraces seat around 80 covers and is home to a menu featuring Mediterranean inspired dishes, prepared from an open air kitchen where chefs show off their culinary skills and families gather to dine in style. Tasi provides an informal setting for a variety of delicate small plates. Food arrives as it is ready, Venitian cicchetti in style. Guests can order as little or as much as they like, spend hours relaxing with a bottle of wine and good company, or grab a quick bite before heading out onto the water. 

Evenings at Peligoni are a unique affair with something different happening each night and our dining options reflects this. The Courtyard hosts weekly events including our family babrbeque and food festival nights: open mic style live music accompanies pop up food stalls where our chefs produce creative and tasty street food. Once a week we host a dinner party in The Terraces, giving guests the opportunity to dress up for dinner and meet new people and our chefs the chance to really show off their culinary skills. 
 
Throughout the low season we also host our Guest Chef Series. Now in it’s fourth year, accomplished chefs join us each week working directly with our kitchen team to showcase their talent and produce a delicious and exciting menu to dazzle foodie fans, staff and guests alike. In previous years we have be joined by Ellis Barrie, Jackson Boxer and Gill Meller, to name a few and this summer is set to be another great series with feasts from the Gladwin Brothers, Elizabeth Haigh, Neil Rankin and more.
