Best Epcot Dining

by Darren Wittko

Epcot has some of the best restaurants at Walt Disney World. For an unforgettable night out, plan dinner in one of the international pavilions, then a stroll around World Showcase for shopping and dessert. Finish the evening with Illuminations: Reflections of Earth fireworks. Admission to Epcot is required to dine at these restaurants. They participate in the Disney Dining Plans and cost 1 Table Service or 1 Quick Service credit respectively.

Coral Reef Restaurant

Beautiful views of the The Seas aquarium. Expensive. Great if you're on the Disney Dining Plan. Seafood gets mixed reviews but the unique atmosphere make it a favorite for many.

Traditional German fare, buffet-style, set to a live Oom-pah band. Expensive - a great place to use the Disney Dining Plan. Great selection of German beer.

Via Napoli Ristorante

Disney doesn't usually do pizza well, but Via Napoli is an exception! Fresh pies made in a wood fired oven. Entrees are good too, though limited selection. Vibrant, whimsacal atmosphere.

Spice Road Table

Often misunderstood - the name doesn't do it justice but the Mediterranean-inspired menu is surprisingly good. Lamb-sliders, beef skewers, and rice-stuffed grape leaves are specialties. Often available for a last minute reservation. Offers some the best views of the World Showcase lagoon and fireworks.

Akershus Royal Banquet Hall

Disney Princesses Character Meal in a castle-like setting. Better than Cinderella Castle. Breakfast is the most popular with traditional items served. Lunch and dinner menu is a little more interesting: Norwegian seafood, cheeses, sliced meats. Very popular - book well in advance. Great for Disney Dining Plan Table Service meal.

Teppan Edo

Japanese steakhouse in a contemporary setting. Pricey - ideal for the Disney Dining Plan. Talented chef's prepare meals on a hibachi grill. Ideal for groups, hibachis can seat up to 8.

Liberty Inn

There's nothing adventurous about the menu: burgers, pulled pork and steak dinner. Good beer selection. Plenty of seating - indoor and out, in a pleasant atmosphere.

Katsura Grill

Known for great sushi and noodles but other entree are done well too. The outdoor seating area offers a peaceful setting, inspired by Japanese gardens. A nice escape from the Theme Park crowds.

Kringla Bakeri og Cafe

Excellent sandwiches - try the ham and apple sandwich or the Kjottkake (meatballs and gravy), pretzels, fresh berries and fruit cups, and cream-filled pastries. Norwegian coffee and beer also available.

Boulangerie Patisserie

Authentic French pastries and sandwiches, though not as good as it once was. Gets crowded and seating is limited but it's so much better than a burger joint!
