Where would it be..

when we go in Nov we don't want to do a TS meal each night.. we will be there for 8 nights.. we will do Ohana, Kona since we are staying at poly and DS wants to do Sci Fi at DHS.. probably won't do one in MK.. but what about Epcot.. If you could do only one which would it be?

We are going to Teppan Edo in June.. so we don't need to repeat there
Have done San Angel.. loved it!
Have done Coral Reef - not impressed..

so I was thinking either Le Cellier or Biergarten, as much as I think I would love Le Cellier.. I think Biergarten would be more fun for the kids...

If you had to choose just one place where would you choose? We have 2 boys.. aged 7 and 3
TIA!:thumbsup2

My kids thought Biergarten was fun, but they weren't too thrilled with the food. I have to echo your sentiments on Coral Reef. The atmosphere was lovely, the food was blah.

My kids like Marakesh (belly dancers!) and the food is really good.

We like the food at Le Cellier and Chefs De France, but there is no entertainment.

The last two times we were at Chef's, Remy was there. He stopped at each table. Was quite fun!

Biergarten and Le Cellier are both good choices. Biergarten is definitely the "fun" one of the 2. The food is good there and the atmosphere is fantastic! I just told my husband last night that the next time we go to WDW we are eating at San Angel Inn and Le Cellier in Epcot (he's never been to either), and giving his beloved biergarten a break!

Biergarten, we love the food and can't get that kind of food in San Antonio.

My vote would be for Biergarten. The atmosphere is great and the show is very entertaining. Food was good too.

Le Cellier was just okay. We had high expectations because of all the great reviews, but the food did not meet those expectations. We ate better steak/beef meals at other places.

Well I was gonna say Coral Reef because it is my must do but...:guilty:
try something new. We are trying 2 new ones next trip at Epcot...Teppan Edo and Garden Grill. Although, we loved Tutto Italia last time.

We went to Biergarten 10 years ago. It was so bad that we have not been back sense and don't plan to try it. Le Cellier is great. As for your children, there is the Garden Grill which features Chip n Dale and Mickey in overalls. The food is served family style and was decent. The restaurant is a slow moving ride that overlooks the Land ride.

I'd do Chefs de France if Remy is still there--it's really cute and the food is good. The kids in our party really enjoyed it there (I was surprised!) Try to get a table by the windows--it's nice to watch people stroll by and there often an outdoor etertainer you can watch (at least during the lunch hours-I don't know about dinner).

Biergarten is fun, too. You sit with other folks (like Teppan Edo) and there's entertainment and an opportunity to meet other people, if you're so inclined.:goodvibes

As always.. thank you everyone! :thumbsup2
I just looked at the menu for Biergarten and am thinking that it may not be such a good choice for us now.. my 3 year old is a picky eater so I need the chicken fingers and mac n cheese option.. but I didn't see it on their menu... I am wondering if he may eat anything from there.

My kids thought Biergarten was fun, but they weren't too thrilled with the food.

Marakesh may be another option.. my hubby and I love Moroccan food.. :thumbsup2

need to look into Les Chefs now..

Le Cellier was just okay. We had high expectations because of all the great reviews, but the food did not meet those expectations. We ate better steak/beef meals at other places.

that's my thing.. I keep hearing all these fabulous reviews about Le Cellier but am afraid we are going to be very disappointed. We live in the Baltimore/DC area and travel to NYC a lot so we have eaten at some very fabulous steak houses.. I am afraid if I get excited about Le Cellier its going to be more like Outback Steak house..

We recently went to Biergarten and the food was very good! Plenty of different foods to choose from. And the entertainment was awesome! Wish they played a longer set, though! :thumbsup2 Our first visit to Biergarten was back when my son was 3 and we had no problem with him finding food to eat. He's now 14 and still loves eating there. Actually, he ate more than my husband and myself combined. :lmao:

We also went to Garden Grill for our daughter's first birthday on the 25th. Again we had a great experience with the food (loved the salad!) and the character interaction was top notch. We saw all the characters like four times during our meal. It was also very cool to eat at a revolving restaurant. It goes so slow it doesn't even seem as if you moved at all! You look up and you see a different part of the scenery of Living with the Land. Very cool! :)

Hope you enjoy your trip! :goodvibes

Another vote here for Biergarten.

Another vote for Biergarten here. I had a 5 year old picky eater when we went, and the buffet style service allowed us to find something that he liked (hint:"schnitzel" = fried chicken patties= chicken fingers).

Next month, we are taking him (now older and wiser) and our 2 year old to Chefs de France to see Remy and smack our lips over the food. Another hint: "croque monsieur" = grilled ham & cheese sandwich. :)

Thank you.. I actually had to image google half the menu at Biergarten! :lmao:

I think we may be leaning more towards Chefs de France now.. hmmmmm..

Just straight off the top of my head, no preconditions, Tutto Italia. Our meal was fantastic. Biergarten was yummy and a lot of fun, though. Chefs was our worst meal that week, IMHO.

Our favorite is Coral Reef and our least favorite is Chefs! :rotfl:So, I would say either LeCellier or Tutto!:laughing:

You will get varying opinions as to what is good or bad TS in the World Showcase. I will agree, in general, that the food in Chefs de France does not equal the food I had in Paris, and the food in Biergarten does not match the food I had in Munich. But I had instances in both places in which I was transported back to the country of origin by the taste or preparation of the food (alright -- I'll admit that it was the beer in Germany that "transported" me :)).

Also, in looking at opinions, keep in mind that adults (and kids) have varying tolerances for eating adventures, and a life-changing experience because you try a new foreign food for the first time (prepared on American soil, with American ingredients and chefs) is not guaranteed. I like to try something new everywhere I go, and the WS is a perfect opportunity to do that in a concentrated setting. I think you can find "delicious" and "repulsive" in every WS restaurant (TS and QS) -- the fun is finding out which is which, according to your own taste.

Because of Chefs de France, my picky eater tried snails (after much encouragement), a perfect roast chicken breast, pate, creme brulee, and profiteroles. He enjoyed (and now looks forward to) 3 foods out of those 5 (all right -- two of the 3 are desserts). You WILL find something for a picky kid in every WS restaurant -- tacos in Mexico, cold cuts in Norway, chicken tempura in China & Japan, hot dogs in Germany, chicken kabobs in Morocco, pasta in Italy, a croque monsieur in France, fish and chips in England, and steak in Canada. It is a Disney park, after all. If you are a picky eater, you can also find safe and familiar foods on the various menus (or just stick with the Liberty Inn in America). If you want to go on a food roller coaster (like I do), you can also do that. And, who knows? You may wind up acquiring a taste for garlickly snails!:woohoo:

We really liked Biergarten, I could live off the potato leek soup with pretzel rolls:cloud9: There was also lots to choose from including familiar things like carved pork, potatoes, mac and cheese etc and the entertainment was a ton of fun.

We did not like Le Cellier and felt the soup at Biergarten was much better than the much raved about cheddar soup at Le Cellier, but obviously a lot of people love this place so if it appeals to you then give it a try:thumbsup2

We love the cheese soup at le Cellier, infact we make it at home from the Disney cook books, however tutto italia is also delicious. So hard to choose:confused3

Le Cellier, hands down.
