6 of the best restaurants in Disney World
Victoria & Albert’s at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
A recipient of AAA’s Five Diamond Award, this is the perfect big splurge on a special occasion. Choose between the elegant main dining room or more intimate Queen Victoria’s Room, which has just four tables and where staff emulates the art of European “tableside finishes” for each dish. Menus change daily.
Flying Fish Café at Disney’s BoardWalk
Sumptuous seafood and choice meats are served in a festive atmosphere reminiscent of the Atlantic City boardwalk. The new Chef’s Tasting Wine Dinner, a nightly affair that offers five courses paired with wine for a special evening, is a must.
What to order: Idaho-potato-wrapped red snapper
Jiko – The Cooking Place at Animal Kingdom Lodge
Jiko specializes in African-inspired dishes with spicy influences from Indian and Mediterranean cultures. It boasts the largest collection of South African wines outside of Africa.
What to order: Taste of Africa app and tagine chicken
Monsieur Paul at France Pavilion in Epcot
This upscale French dining experience is influenced by three-Michelin-starred Chef Paul Bocuse. Tables overlooking the lake offer a romantic setting.
What to order: St. Jacques Parfum d’Hiver (seared scallops and black truffle spaghettini) and the Grand Marnier souffle
Raglan Road Irish Pub at Downtown Disney
This authentic Irish pub was built entirely in Ireland and shipped to Disney. This is a great choice for brunch, lunch or dinner with live entertainment.
