By the way, the Greek lasagna is spelled: Pastitsio.
Thanks for the info, Tim! Great blog, by the way!

Loukoumades (a.k.a. honey balls) are freakishly awesome. Just got (more than) my fill of some about a week and a half ago at the annual Greek Fest the Greek Orthodox church up the street from me held.
Love your site, by the way!
The August 15th date is a soft opening. Grand opening is on September 17th.
Jeff — Funny you say that, as that’s exactly what I zero-ed in on when I looked at the menu! Nice to see a good review; I’ll be sure to try them!
ScottWDW — Thank you for clearing up the soft/grand opening dates. We’ll always trust you and the calculator!
My husband and I had dinner at Kouzzina’s last Saturday and were very disappointed. He had the pork T-bone which was tough and dry and I had the Pastichio (by the way–this is the correct spelling)and it tasted more like a cross between a Shepard and spaghetti pie. Service was great but the decor–it looked like a cafeteria. We should have kept our reservation at Marrekesh in Epcot!
Thank you for your review, Diane! I haven’t heard anything bad about the restaurant, so I really appreciate hearing your honest thoughts.
Just ate there this afternoon, 9/7/09, and I was really surprised, and disappointed, that the restaurant has seemingly reamained untouched since they moved in after Spoodles.
My husband got the whole fish, which was yellow tail snapper. While he enjoyed it, the price of almost $28 did not include any side dishes. No veggies, no nothing.
I was not very hungry and since we have a 2 hour drive home, taking leftovers with us is not an option. I decided to get the mussels in a garlic sauce figuring I could also spurge and get the doughnuts for dessert. All the food was very good, but then came the bill. They actually charged me $5 more fr my appetizer being an entre. How does this make sense???
I won’t go back just because of that. I feel like the waiter should have informed me of this “rule”. I certainly did not get $14 worth of mussels.
Wow, Sandi. That’s really strange — both the no veggies/sides and the extra $$ for getting an app as your entree. Anyone else have this experience? Yikes!
Ok, I must apologize. After looking online, I believe my mussels appetizer was $12.99, not $7.99. That would make the upcharge just a dollar. I’m still not sure why there’s any difference, but a dollar isn’t as big of a deal to me.
Still would have liked to have had some sides with the fish, even as big as it was.
Good to hear from someone who ate there. It is a bit sad to see Spoodles go it was one of my favs. The appetizers sound more appetizing then the entires to me. I always have to try out a new Disney restaurant at least once.
I just ahd a fabulous time at Kouzzina’s. I am Gluten intolerent and have trouble eating out. Chef George made this simple and delicious. I had the Cinnamon Stewed Chicken sans the ouzo and my hubby had the Fisherman’s Stew sans the bread so I could taste. They made me special gluten free bread and also a delicous, original, gluten free dessert. Service was wonderful, atmosphere was fun and friendly. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves good food. I also had the Coronation Pinot Noir and it was the perfect compliment to the evening. Thank you Disney/Kouzzina for making my 60th birthday so special.
Sandi, thanks for the update!
Jackey — When are you going to try it out? Any plans to head to the world?
Katy — Thank you for your review! I’m always impressed by how customer-service oriented Disney is when it comes to special diets. They’re on top of it.
