Readers Respond: Disney World's Best Restaurants

Responses: 16

By

There are so many great places to eat, it's difficult to determine the top restaurants at Walt Disney World. That's why I turned to 10 of the most popular and respected travel journalists covering the Florida theme park mecca and developed the Top 10 Best Restaurants at Disney World list. Now it's your turn. What's your favorite dining spot (or few spots) at Walt Disney World?

Best seafood in WDW

Flying Fish Cafe is our favorite must-go restaurant whenever we visit Disney World. The food is fantastic and the service is excellent. The breakfast buffet at Animal Kingdom Lodge, Boma, is outstanding, worth every penny. And the Yachtsman Steakhouse at The Yacht Club resort is absolutely the best you'll find anywhere! Pricey, but worth it.

Cat Cora

Every year we go (three years in a row so far) we visit Kouzzina by Cat Cora! Everything is delicious from appetizers, to main course, to dessert! The olive oils they bring in the beginning are yum! Greek salad, pastitio and baklava is the perfect meal... to die for! I highly recommend this restaurant. It has a quiet atmosphere and is rarely crowded. If you are looking for a high quality meal and excellent service come to Kouzzina by Cat Cora! You will not be disappointed!!!

Disney

Our favorite restaurants at Disney were the pizza at the All-Star Movies Resort, and the Cinderella buffet at the Grand Floridian.

Pooh's Best Buddy

EPCOT has many great restaurants. Chefs de France is a bit more affordable and excellent! Remy comes to the tables and talks to the patrons about his chef's creations! :) The escargot is one of the best I've ever had. The best in Magic Kingdom is Cinderella's Royal Table. Unfortunately, Disney turned it into a Character dinner, so there is no fine dining option for adults at the park. Disney should have the characters at a less expensive restaurant so adults have an option and more children can go to a cheaper restaurant! In Disney Studios the best choices are The Brown Derby, which is similar to the original and a great restaurant, and Mamma Melrose's Italian Restaurant, which is a less expensive option but very good (and family style dining). Stop here and see the Muppet show either before or after you eat. At the Contemporary Hotel, the California Grill has great food and great views of the fireworks. The Wave offers great American cooking. MY top pick is Victoria & Albert's. Its five stars is deserved and not to be missed!

Best Food

I have two favorites, Tutto Italia in Epcot and Raglan Road in Downtown Disney. Unfortunately Disney has removed both of these restaurants from the dining plan for the 2012 year.

Le Cellier, Not so Hot

We waited 6 months with high anticipation of a great steak at Le Cellier. Unfortunately, that was not the case. My New York strip was chewy and stringy.My wife's filet, was also stringy. For all the hype about this restaurant, it was a real letdown. Reading other reviews, tough meat was not reserved only for us.

Go to Modern Tokyo Dining

This place is wonderful. It's not the one where they cook in front of you. You are served by an outstanding Japanese waitress in traditional Japanese garments, which is great for ambiance and that she can answers all questions about the exotic food. I got the whold dining experience starting with shrimp appetizer, then i had the tempura combo with chicken shrimp and vegetables then the waitress suggested the ginger cake. We got that and then i saw green tea pudding, and being the curious person i am, i had to get it. It was definitely worth it. The whole experience was breathtaking, i will never go again without eating here. The waitress made it even better because she could stay at our table and talk to us for so long about how our cultures are different and what it's like to live there an gave insight to their beliefs. It was everything you should get out of a Disney World dining experience. You walk out full and more knowledgeable. ARTHUR SAYS: Thanks for the great review tanner.king. I think the name of the restaurant is just Tokyo Dining.

The Hoop De Doo Review!

A stupid sounding name for the younger crowd.My daughter(17) reluctantly joined my mother(70),& me and my husband for what surprisingly turned out to be the most exilerating night of our visit!We all went in kind of sceptically, not knowing what to expect.The next thing we knew was that we had all-you-can-eat ribs, chicken, and fries in buckets on our table, and an audiance-participation stage show in front of us.The entire place was soon hootin' and hollerin', and laughing our full bellies!The food was surprisingly delicious, and the entertainment was a kick for all of us (I have the best pictures of my family laughing!) The price is a little up there, but after participating in this event, we all say it is definitely worth it, and on our "must-do" list every time we go! The Hoop-de-doo Review is by reservation only, at the Wilderness Resort. You can get there by Disney bus, but the boat from the Lodge is much more leisurely.Besides, it's an excuss to tour the gorgeous lodge then!

Restaurant Marrakesh

Restaurant Marrakesh is a cool oasis of great fun and entertaining belly dancers. Watching the dancers round up the little boys and girls in the audience to take them out on the dance floor is beyond cute. The food is great - love couscous! Be sure to try the bastilla, both the meat ones and the dessert. The meat ones are in the flaky crisp pastry with cinnamon and powdered sugar sprinkled on top. Sounds weird, but it's quite tasty. In the dessert version the place sheets of the crispy pastry with cream and almonds.

Good and Affordable

If I have an annual pass (or a 10 day pass), I don't mind taking 90 minutes or more in fine dining. But for a quick and affordable meal, the one stop at Epcot is still at Sunshine Season Food Fair, in The Land Showcase. The choice is good, it is always very fresh, easy in easy out... to leave you enough time for another Test Track ride !

Where's Victoria and Albert?

I was sadly disappointed to not see Victoria and Albert on the list. Yes, it's outrageously expensive, even by WDW standards, but it is, bar none, the best meal you will have there. They only offer a fixed price 7 course meal (the portions are almost small enough to get through it all!), with optional wine pairing. Going for both will set you back $400 plus tip. However, it is a once in a lifetime experience - outstanding food coupled with outstanding service. As an added bonus, V&A has the best vegetarian offering (it's always there). My wife is a vegetarian and hasn't stopped raving about the meal that she had. Believe me, it's hard to find high quality gourmet vegetarian offerings and this is the best. Well worth it.

Citrico's!

We really love Citrico's in the Grand Floridian and always save enough Dining Plan points to eat there at least once every trip. Great food, an extensive wine list, and super friendly and helpful wait-staff. We even had the chef visit us at our table! I'm a picky eater. I ordered something off the menu with a lot of substitutions. A few minutes after the waiter left, the chef appeared to suggest something totally different that he would create just for me and it was amazing! We also enjoy Jiko and would agree that it has a more intimate atmoshpere than Citrico's.

Favorite WDW restaurant

I had one of the best meals ever at Le Cellier in the Canada section of Epcot.

Les Chefs de France

Every time we visit Disney, we have to stop at Les Chefs de France. It is, by far, the best restaurant at Disney World. Runner up is Boma. Best buffet we've ever had.
