Here at DFB, we believe that one of the most important aspects of a great Disney World vacation is the food!
If you’re headed to the parks and resorts, there are some really delicious options for meals…and some not-so-delicious ones. That’s why we’re constantly visiting Disney restaurants — to give you our honest reviews! And if you’re visiting EPCOT soon, then there are some DFB reviews we think you should read first.
Chefs de France
Starting things off in the World Showcase, Chefs de France is located in (you guessed it!) the France Pavilion and serves (you guessed it again!) French cuisine.
On the menu, you’ll find everything from Beouf Bourguignon to Ratatouille, and there’s even a Prix Fixe option you can order!
We stopped by Chefs de France a few months ago after EPCOT reopened to see what had changed. Note that the prices have increased slightly since our review.
Craving dessert? Then you need to read our review of the brand new Gelateria Toscana in EPCOT’s Italy Pavilion!
This gelato stand just opened up recently and they serve a variety of flavors and unique creations, including non-gelato desserts and coffee.
Especially if you’re planning to visit EPCOT during the summer months, you may want to stop here for the perfect way to cool off!
La Hacienda de San Angel
Over in the Mexico Pavilion, there are two main table service restaurants. The first of those is La Hacienda de San Angel, located outside of the pyramid on the edge of the World Showcase Lagoon.
Here you’ll find authentic Mexican cuisine with items like skillets, tacos, fresh corn tortillas, and a variety of margaritas.
This tends to be one of EPCOT’s more underrated restaurants, so it won’t be quite as difficult to snag a reservation here!
Le Cellier Steakhouse
This restaurant is a popular choice among Disney fans for a date night, special occasion, or a “treat yo self” dinner.
But is it really worth the amount you pay? Check out our review to find out!
Regal Eagle Smokehouse
One of the newer spots you’ll find in the World Showcase is Regal Eagle Smokehouse: Craft Drafts & Barbecue (it has quite the name!). This relatively new quick service replaced Liberty Inn and now serves up the most American food we could think of — barbecue.
You can find it all here at Regal Eagle!
Rose & Crown Pub/Dining Room
Craving fish, chips, and a pint…but you’re looking for somewhere to sit and relax with a casual feel? Look no further than Rose & Crown in the UK Pavilion!
Here at Rose & Crown, you can either visit the Dining Room for a lovely table service experience, or you can head inside the Pub for a fun and upbeat atmosphere.
San Angel Inn
And we’re back to Mexico to visit the other table service spot — San Angel Inn! This restaurant is modeled after the original San Angel Inn in Mexico, and the scenery is unlike any other spot in Disney World.
Here, you’ll be dining inside the Mexico Pavilion pyramid, and while you eat you’ll be able to watch the shoppers in the market, as well as see guests floating by on Gran Fiesta Tour.
You’ll feel like you’re outside no matter the time of day, and you may be able to enjoy some yummy eats as well!
Spice Road Table
If you’re wandering through Morocco and wondering where to eat, let us direct you to Spice Road Table for a quick bite! This lounge-style restaurant is home to various small plates and a seating area with a view.
You could have a full meal here or just stop with some friends for a quick drink and shared snack, it’s up to you.
But before you do, make sure to read our review so that you know exactly what to order!
Even though you may be able to find them at home, hibachi restaurants are a great choice if you’re heading out to dinner with a group — who doesn’t love all the fun shenanigans?! And if you’re hoping to get that same experience in EPCOT, you can find it at Teppan Edo.
It’s not a particularly unique dining option, but it may be just what you’re looking for on your next trip.
Take a look at our review to see what we thought on our last visit!
We’ll try not to spoil the review, but Via Napoli in the Italy Pavilion is one of our favorites for dining in EPCOT. This table service location serves up authentic Neapolitan wood-fired pizzas, pasta, and meat dishes that’ll make your mouth water.
But to visit here, you’ll want to snag up a reservation as soon as you can, because it’s very popular!
Those gigantic pizzas are a serious crowd-pleaser.
And speaking of DFB favorites, let’s talk about Garden Grill. Located in The Land Pavilion, this spot has deliciously fresh food and fun character interactions with Chip, Dale, Pluto, and Mickey (in his farmer outfit!).
The restaurant even rotates slowly through scenes of the Living with the Land ride, so there’s plenty of fun to be had here.
We think this one is definitely underrated as far as character meals go — just look at our review to see what we mean!
And last but not least, there’s Coral Reef Restaurant in The Seas Pavilion. This is one of those dining locations that you don’t often hear about, but it has a really cool concept…you’re dining in an aquarium!
You can choose from a menu of seafood options and watch the fishes swim by (which may seem just a tad weird…) while you chow down.
Those with little ones will probably enjoy this experience!
There you have it — the list of reviews you should check out before heading to EPCOT. There are so many great places to dine here that it could be hard to choose one! Stay tuned to DFB for the latest food news and reviews from all around Disney World.
