We like Tappan Edo in Japan. This trip we are trying, beside LeCellier and Tappan Edo, Biergarten in Germany and Rose and Crown in England. So far we have not been disappointed in any meal we have had at Epcot.

This trip we're eating at Le Cellier for the second time and trying Tutto Italia and Coral Reef for the first time. I'm a little leery about Coral Reef, but my kids really want to eat there, and it's been getting some better reviews lately so we're going to give it a go. :confused3

Tutto Italia-ate there for the first time last Sept. Going back for DM's bday this Sept.

We are also (planning) on eating at R&C, Tokyo Dining, and Coral Reef.

There are alot of choices at Epcot besides LC. We no longer eat there.

LOVED Biergarten. It was one of those ones i let DH pick out and was leary about it but it was great! We are doing it again in September. Awesome food and entertainment. We also ate at teppan edo and thought the hibachi place at home was better.

We love Nine Dragons in China. The food is delish and the ginger cake is TDF!

We love Coral Reef. For ds it is a must do. The atmosphere cannot be beat and I do not understand the bad reviews. The NY strip is very good. I will say though that CR can be rather expensive. Be warned that the land and sea appetizer it so, so small. It absolutely cannot be shared - and we are very used to sharing!!!

Tepan Edo gets my vote.

We are going to LeCellier for lunch and Rose and Crown for dinner, hopefully getting a patio seat for Illuminations. If not we will just stand out on the patio and watch.

I went to Biergarten with a friend about 4-5 years ago. We opted for the buffet...thank God because I tried almost everything on it in order to find 2-3 items I liked! Guess I'm too picky but I did not care for the food there. I LOVE Rose & Crown, however! EVERY trip to DW we either stop by for lunch or dinner for their delicious fish & chips. An order is too much for me, though, I always have to share with someone! We also like Tappan Edo...going there again in Aug. I would like to try the Coral Reef, too. Can anyone give me some feedback on some really tasty entrees?

Teppan Edo for entertainment... if you've never eaten at a Teppenyaki (sp) restaurant, this is fantastic. Even if you have, there are many surprises in store. We haven't eaten at Tokyo Dining before, but we have eaten in the older Japense table-service restaurant before it was refurbished. We were able to see Tokyo Dining while waiting for Teppan Edo, and I must say, the interior decor is fantastic.

Coral Reef is also a great restaurant in terms of atmosphere- as in the big fish tank. I would like to warn you that this restaurant is LOUD. Children love to run up to the fish tank and smush the noses into the glass and/or scream "TURTLE" or "STING RAY" when they swim by. (And I don't blame them! ;) )

Marrakesh is also a great restaurant for entertainment- we enjoyed the food. However, we think that it's a bit overpriced if you're paying OOP.

Les Chefs de France is also one of our favorites as well. I took French through middle school and high school and we've been to France several times, so this restaurant kind of brings us back. I would LOVE to go back to this restaurant now that Remy is introduced.

We plan on trying Tutto Italia and Rose and Crown in the near future- sorry, can't help you there. These two restaurants seem to have good reviews for the most part on the disBoards.

Hmm, lets see for Sept we got
1. Le Cellier (Great steaks and Beer)
2. Teppan Edo (Not been since they changed but was always good food)
3. Tutto Italia (Not been since they changed but enjoy Italian food so we shall see)
4. Biergarten (My fave second only to Le Cellier. Beer, sausage and music what more can you ask for)
5. Rose and Crown (Always eat here for the illuminations view plus the Beer)
Hmm I seem to have a theme going.

07-11-2009, 10:08 PM
I agree with the other posters...

My next choice would be Teppan Edo and then Tutto Italia..we ate at San Angel and it was just OK.

07-11-2009, 10:32 PM
biergarten for guest participation in entertainment and variety on buffet. coral reef has some great kids plates with healthy choices. definately recommend advance dining reservations in any case.

07-11-2009, 10:36 PM
Why oh why does Epcot have so many great restaurants?? I've just been reading all the responses and am overwhelmed.

I think we have reservations for about 4 Epcot TS meals while we are there (Rose and Crown, Coral Reef, Le Cellier, San Angel). Then we have even more snacks/CS that we want to do there too.

After thinking about it a bit, I've come to the conclusion that Epcot is just selfish and won't share with the other parks.

My family's 1st choice: Tepan Edo
2nd choice: Tutto Italia
3rd choice: Coral Reef

Teppan Edo (Formerly Teppan Yaki) is a family tradition.

DS17 has been there the last ....gosh...6-7 times? of his 10 visits to WDW? and demands that we go....

I love it too ...but would love to try Le Cellier one day.....But I always choose Teppan Edo to make DS happy....

It is Hibachi and the show is great. I enjoy being seated next to other folks...it always seems that we learn more about WDW by chatting with the folks at our table.
We also love the shopping and shows in Japan more than the other countries....

Coral Reef - love the atmosphere w/the aquarium view & the steak there is excellent!

07-12-2009, 11:01 AM
We really like Rose and Crown! (Fish and Chips yummmm)
The lamb 2 ways my BIL said it was good
The Steak was great no any where near Le Celliers but it was good!

07-12-2009, 11:13 AM
Teppan Edo is a must do for us each trip. We enjoy the food and the chef's entertainment.
We also enjoy Restaurant Marrakesh. I think it is a beautiful restaurant, with warm friendly servicers and good food. And the Belly Dancer is fun.,
Rose & Crown is good and I enjoy the atmosphere and talking to the servers there too. We enjoyed the San Angel Inn last time, even though it gets mixed reviews here on the DIS.
We are trying Biergareden on our next trip after many years.
WS in Epcot is lots of good food and fun.
Enjoy your trip

Over the years I've eaten at every restaurant in EPCOT except Germany and the new Italian Restaurant. Here are the places I like best.

1. Le Cellier (Of course), but I am not eating here next month: ( This one has the best food in EPCOT.

2. Rose and Crown. Great atmosphere and good food.

3. Moroco. I liked it, but the rest of my part Loved it.

4. Mexico. I liked it, but the rest of my party didn't like the food. I do love the atmosphere.

5. Japan. Liked it. I'm not too fond of sitting with strangers. LOL. I guess I'm anti-social.

6. The other restaurant in Japan. Loved it and so did my family. Love the beautiful waitresses. So polite and pretty and the food seems so clean and fresh.

7. Chefs de France. Liked it, my wife and daughter LOVED it.

8. Norway. Liked it, but didn't love it. It was great to meet all the princesses and it was fun, but the food was just decent.

9. Coral Reef. Liked it, but didn't love it. I do love the atmosphere.

10. China. Didn't like it. I guess I'm spoiled I live in New York and we have some amazing Chinese restaurants here, so I was really disappointed with the food. It tasted like the fast food places in the malls.

That's all I could think of right now. Hope this hellped.

I love the Biergarten in Germany. You'll almost certainly find something you'll really like at the buffet and the atmosphere is great. But you do have to eat with strangers, which for some people might be a turn-off, but I find it fun.

07-12-2009, 03:58 PM
My favorites:
Garden Grill
Coral Reef

They're in Future World, but I can't go on a trip an not eat at Garden Grill (it's going to be a strugle for me in December where I promised DFi I wouldn't book any TS)

07-12-2009, 04:23 PM
LOVED Biergarten. It was one of those ones i let DH pick out and was leary about it but it was great! We are doing it again in September. Awesome food and entertainment. We also ate at teppan edo and thought the hibachi place at home was better.
My parents went to Teppan Edo right after it opened and thought the same thing -- that doesn't seem to be a popular opinion, though!

07-12-2009, 04:46 PM
Teppan Edo or Tutto Itialia, I went to both resturants in June and loved them. Le Cellier is awesome to though!! The meatballs at TI are delicious and the chocolate ginger cake at TE is to die for.

07-12-2009, 04:51 PM
Although LeCellier is my favorite in Epcot...I also love Chefs de France & Tutto Italia. This Aug i will be eating at all 3 of these plus for the first time Rose & Crown, Nine dragons & Biergarten. I'll be going to Epcot 3x so each day I'll be doing 2 TS. I can't wait !!!!

07-12-2009, 05:08 PM
My votes would go to Tutto Italia and Chefs de France! Love both!

I really love Chefs for lunch b/c it feels so cheerful to sit out in the windowed area and look out and all that is going on. It is the best! :)

Tutto... YUM! What can I say, the food is just GOOD!! :thumbsup2

Have Le Cellier, Chefs and Tutto all on the agenda for this year. Can't wait!

07-12-2009, 05:13 PM
We eat at Coral Reef, Teppan Edo, Chefs de France, and we are trying Crown & Rose.

There are tons of places in Epcot to eat!

07-12-2009, 06:43 PM
We used to eat at Akershus each trip but it's changed for the worse (and yes, I've whined a lot about it! :) ) I like Rose and Crown now and I'd like to try the new Italian place.

07-12-2009, 06:59 PM
Teppan Edo and Coral Reef are our favorites.

07-12-2009, 07:21 PM
Following Le Cellier, I LOVE Teppan Edo. Wonderful food and it's soooo much fun, too! Our chef made an onion and oil volcano! After that, I'd choose Les Chefs de France, Biergarten, and finally Marrakesh.

07-12-2009, 07:53 PM
Thanks for all your great tips....I have choosen Tutto Italia....

Yay...cant wait to get to DISNEY!!! and stuff my face.....
