The list of Mobile Order restaurants at Disney World just got a little longer!
‘Ohana makes a lot of DFB’s top lists. Great restaurant for first timers. Tasty spot for large groups. Hot spot for families. Regular haunt for food bloggers. (That last one might be a little more niche, actually… .) This table service restaurant atop Polynesian Village Resort‘s Great Ceremonial House appeals to multiple senses. It’s got stunning views, irresistible aromas, and — oh, yeah — delicious ‘Ohana Bread Pudding.
But what if you want to dig into some ‘Ohana dinner goodness, but you’re also equally looking forward to hanging out in your pajamas in your room at the Poly? [Read more…]
We’re exploring Gran Destino Tower today
(check out our LIVE post here to see all of our coverage!) and of the many breathtaking spaces in the Tower, Barcelona Lounge makes a particularly powerful impression.
This stunning espresso bar/gin tonic lounge is open to the entry and lobby above and features towering views of Lago Dorado and Coronado Springs Resort beyond.
Barcelona Lounge is notable for its thoughtful and thought-provoking architecture and interior design. [Read more…]
is the table service restaurant offering at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort.
This eatery opened last October as extensive renovations at the Moderate Resort came to an end. Our first visit to Sebastian’s was fine (see our review and first look here!), but we weren’t exactly rushing back to try it. For starters, although it’s a lovely restaurant, it’s off the beaten path a bit if you’re not staying at the resort.
But the food also didn’t knock our socks off. It was good, but it wasn’t great. Our advice at the time was not to go out of your way to try it, but that you might give the Caribbean-inspired dishes a whirl if you were nearby.
Would our most recent dinner change this recommendation? Or is Sebastian’s at risk of sinking under the sea? The restaurant has already closed its lunch offering, so now it’s open only for dinner.
Sebastian’s Bistro is the Resort’s replacement for the formerly lackluster Shutters, and the updated decor was a welcome change. [Read more…]
has always been a guest favorite spot to grab breakfast, lunch, or dinner. But with a big menu change, is it still as crave-worthy?
Located in the Great Ceremonial House that serves as the centerpiece of the resort, the restaurant is airy and open…but still relatively boring when it comes to decor and theme. But since the Polynesian is on the Monorail, Kona Cafe is relatively easy to access even if you’re not staying at the resort. And, of course, the food has been fairly consistent over the years: good with moments of greatness.
Now the recent menu change has guests wondering whether Kona Cafe should stay on their must-get Advance Dining Reservation list or whether they should head elsewhere. We reviewed lunch shortly after the menu change, and overall, we were impressed by the offerings! In particular, we thought the sushi was a terrific value, and we enjoyed the Hawaiian-Style Reuben sandwich. Even dessert had some pleasant surprises with Key Lime and Tiramisu cups bringing good flavor.
But I wanted to get back to dine from the Dinner Offerings portion of the menu, which is where you’ll find Steak and Seafood that isn’t available for lunch. [Read more…]
