View Full Version : Help me pick a Resort TS on the Dining Plan!

04-15-2010, 08:04 PM
One of the days we are going to the AK it closes at 5, and we would like to go to a Resort TS restaurant and counts for one dining credit. We already have reservations at Ohana another night, so what is another good one??? The Wave? Sanaa? Kona Cafe? Kouzzina? Captain's Grille? any other?? I am confused.

I have not been to any of these other dining places. I have been to that are good are: Cape May Clambake @ Beach Club
Whispering Canyon @ Wilderness
Olivia's @ OKWest

Kona's would probably get my vote because I am trying this year for first time.

I thought Kona was just ok.

Kouzzina was not good.

Sanaa, however, was EXCELLENT!

Kona Cafe is good. We're going there on our trip in September :)

04-15-2010, 10:12 PM
have been to all of these...we love The Wave.

Maya Grill at Coronado Springs was also very good, and awesome decor in there (fabulous service, too...and strolling guitar player was wonderful.)
Kona we like almost as much as the Wave.
Captain's Grill we liked, too.
Olivia's at Old Key West was good food, good service

Kouzzina was not good at all -terrible service, over-salted food, tough beef
Sanaa...some of the food was very good, some not good at all. If you like Asian/African flavors (emphasis on curry) you'll like the food there...but note there is virtually no 'merican-type food on the menu if you have any picky/non-adventurous appetites in your party. Wonderful view there if you're eating during animal feeding time.

Kona Cafe or the Wave. Both are very good!

04-15-2010, 10:32 PM
I'm probably going to be in the minority here, but I did not care for Kona Cafe, on the other hand Kouzinna is one of my favorites!

04-15-2010, 11:03 PM
I voted other, i would go to Boma

04-15-2010, 11:08 PM
Kona Cafe and Kouzzina are two of my favorites. Enthusiastic recommendation for either restaurant!

04-15-2010, 11:15 PM
We like Whispering Canyon so that's my vote.

I voted for The Wave because I have read a lot of positive reviews about it.

04-16-2010, 04:11 PM
The Wave, Kona, or the Grand Floridian Cafe (for which I voted Other).

Another vote for BOMA !!!!:thumbsup2

04-16-2010, 04:46 PM
Kona is very good, which is what I voted for. I also loved Whispering Canyon at WL, and I've always wanted to try Boma! Captain's Grille was also good! :thumbsup2

04-16-2010, 05:45 PM
I vote Boma too, especially if your going to be at AK.

04-16-2010, 05:47 PM
Very Interesting results!! Yes I forgot about Boma. I'm very adventurous with food, i'll eat anything. My husband on the other hand, not so much. He'll eat sushi, japanese, mexican, but doesn't like a lot of dishes with curry or indian flavors.

That is what I was kind of worried about with Boma. I've heard it's mainly good for it's soups. Am I wrong???

04-16-2010, 06:13 PM
My whole family loves Boma. DD(6) eats the prime rib, DD(8) likes the salmon. I love the carrot-ginger soup and the hummus type spreads, and DH puts the cilantro vinaigrette on everything. There is plenty of variety for everyone.

Ooops I voted for other I didn't see the 1TS credit! Soooo i like Kona...great food, bread is awesome! I love the Tuna steak, never had it before didn't know what to expect...it was great!
Honorable mentions : Cape May is great if you like clams and crab, 1900 Park Fare is fun the food is so so but the characters are fun! same with Chef Mickey's, Turf Club and Boatwrights are hidden gems IMO great food!

We had lunch at Sanaa last December. It was wonderful. Our kids (DD14 and DS10) are requesting a return trip this year. Since you want to go after AK closes, this is close by. Plus, you can extend your animal viewing with the savannah areas at Kidani Village. Our kids took hundreds of animal pictures when we were there.....thank God for digital photography! ::MinnieMo

I'd go with:
#1. Boma
#2. Cape May
#3. Kona

04-17-2010, 07:05 AM
I picked other for the Cape May Clam Bake Buffet.

04-17-2010, 08:07 AM
Sanaa is awesome! We were concerned about the cuisine at first, but decided to try it anyway since we were staying at Kidani. Now, it's a must do!:thumbsup2

Kona Cafe and Kouzzina are two of my favorites. Enthusiastic recommendation for either restaurant!

From your list, I would choose Kona. Boma is another great restaurant that we visit when we are near AK.

Cape May :goodvibes

i see a lot of people sugg'd whispering canyon... i'd echo this suggestion...

i also like DTD's Raglan Road... DTD is convenient from your resort due to the nice (long) boatride...

boatwrights, right next door at POR, is also a good choice... we brought our suits and swam in the POR themed pool when we did that (dinner at Boatwrights, swim in pool, boatride back to POFQ)... it was a fun night :)

another thought for your AK day would be to have TS b'fast or lunch at AK and designate that evening as your pizza by the pool, restin' and relaxin' (or laundry doin') evening...

04-17-2010, 05:17 PM
for those sugg'ing cape may... keep in mind that getting back to POFQ after dinner from another resort (other than monorail resorts) can be a major pita... it would require major bus switching...

a last but not least thought would be to head over to the campground for trail's end buffet and movie/campfire time... getting back would mean a boat to MK followed by a bus to POFQ though...
