Need a relaxing date night? Have a sleeping baby? Want to simply get away from the crowds and the bustle of the Disney parks for a while?
We asked our friends on the Disney Food Blog Facebook Page for their recommendations on quiet dining in Disney World and Disneyland, and we want to hear YOURS, too!
The locations mentioned the most in Walt Disney World were: Jiko at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, Artist Point at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, and Victoria & Albert’s at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa.
Best Disney World Restaurants For Quiet Dining
Let’s take a peek at these top Disney Food Blog reader choices for quiet dining in Disney World!
For romance, delicious dishes, and a peaceful meal inspired by low lighting and a calming water feature view, head over to the Animal Kingdom Lodge’s Jiko.
Facebook Friend Adhiraj G. recommends “Jiko later in the evening! great view, great service and quiet (in a relaxed sort of way)!”
A window-side table offers a beautiful view during daylight hours while savoring the gourmet cuisine. Keep an eye on the soothing “sunset wall” at the back of the restaurant, which cycles through the colors made by an African sunset while you dine.
Read our most recent review of Jiko here. Jiko is only open for dinner.
Nestled in the American Northwest theme of the Wilderness Lodge, Artist Point and its view of Bay Lake in the distance soothes weary travelers. Facebook Friends Lyn W., Julie M., and others heartily recommend Artist Point’s chilled out atmosphere!
As a signature restaurant, Artist Point serves up creative dishes in a relaxing atmosphere. After the sun sets, low lighting beckons guests to unwind in this restaurant. Walk-ins are possible too! See our most recent Artist Point review here. Artist Point is open for dinner only.
Victoria & Albert’s
Elegant and refined, Victoria and Albert’s has accomplished a AAA five diamond rating. This restaurant transforms dining into a memorable experience with dedicated servers, personalized menus, and complimentary roses for the ladies!
Facebook Friend Lenny C. emphatically states, “Victoria & Alberts is the king!”
With a strict dress code and patrons required to be age 10 and over (sorry; can’t bring the sleeping baby here), Victoria and Albert’s in the Grand Floridian Resort maintains an exclusive and quiet atmosphere.
Read a review here of the ultra-attentive Chef’s Table, though for true quiet I’d recommend the regular dining room or the Victoria Room. Victoria and Albert’s is open for dinner only.
Best Restaurants For Quiet Dining in Disneyland
A couple of restaurants topped the list for quiet dining in Disneyland with our Facebook Friends and readers!
The Blue Bayou offers a twilight, indoor setting nestled in New Orleans Square. The lighting – twinkling, glowing, and candlelit – inspires diners to unwind in this creole restaurant featuring views of the Pirates of the Caribbean boats floating by.
Blue Bayou is open for lunch and dinner.
For a sophisticated menu with fine wines, Napa Rose inside Disney’s Californian Hotel is an outstanding choice!
Facebook Friend Kim O. exclaims “Or if you want to spend some real money go to Napa Rose at Grand Californian. But it’s quiet and intimate and really good cuisine.”
With warm tones and Craftsman decor, Napa Rose offers a muted environment with impeccable service. You’ll find a review here. Napa Rose is open for dinner only.
