Best hotel or Downtown Disney restaurant
 
I realize food is very subjective, but I'll ask anyway. We will be in Orlando for just 1 night, not going to the parks on this trip. If you could chhose just 1 restaurant to have dinner in with 2 adults and a 16 year old.....where would you go?

How about Raglan Road? The irish dancers come out at dinner time, its quite lovely! Food is good too.

There's also TRex (fun, and good food). And also House of Blues (some nights you will have a band playing out on the patio). All of the places mentioned are loud...so if youre looking for something quiet, then perhaps a signature restaurant is more approrpriate. Only reason i brought up the noise level is because this is quite often the complaint with TRex & Raglan Road. I personally dont have an issue with noise level. I figure its something you cant get away from, youre in disney afterall.

If you want a really good experience, Flying Fish on the Boardwalk is wonderful. Jiko at AKL, and Sanaa at AKL-Kidani Village are both very good, with Sanaa coming in as less expensive. Closer to MK, Citricos at GF is great, and you might be able to go outside to see Wishes on the grounds of the GF, closer to Narcoossee's.

I know that's not just one place, but depending on where you'd like to be, there are lots of good choices.

I read it too quick and didnt realise you wanted resort restaurants too. I only suggested the ones at DTD! Sorry.

Signature restaurants:
Citrico's at the GF is nice.
Flying Fish at the boardwalk or Yachtsman steakhouse at the Yacht club resort (both signature restaurants) are nice. Theyre both in the same area. Afterwards its nice to stroll around the boardwalk for some entertainment.

Non-signature:
The GF cafe is a good option.
Cape May cafe (seafood buffet) at the beach club resort is good if you eat seafood.

I still think DTD is the way to go. You can spend hours there just shopping and looking around. So much to see and do.

Strictly for food Bull & Bear or La Luce at Waldorf and Hilton Bonnet Creek. Ragland Road at DTD is fund with decent food. My requests are only based on DTD area.

bluezoo. No doubt about it.

CoolDisneyCat 10-30-2012 03:03 AM

My vote is for Flying Fish.

Uncleromulus 10-30-2012 06:03 AM

Blue Zoo, Shulas, Citricos, Flying Fish.

For DTD resorts we like the Hilton and Best Western for DTD restaurants we like Trex, RFC, EOS and WGPE!

Citricos at Grand Floridian. One of the best meals I've ever had, plus you can explore the resort while you're there :)

Italian -- Il Mulino
Steaks -- Shula's
Seafood -- Blue Zoo or Fulton's

We also dined at Flying Fish Cafe recently and enjoyed it. And, Citrico's can be nice.

We have not been impressed lately with any other Disney "signature" restaurants, e.g., Jiko, Artist Point, Yachtsman Steakhouse, California Grill. While these used to be very good, from our experience, they all now suffer from being part of the Disney dining plan.

Raglan Road at Downtown Disney

For buffets my suggestions would be Boma at AKL or Cape May at BC. For signature dining, Yachstman Steakhouse at YC or Artist Point at WL.

FireDancer 11-01-2012 12:26 PM

Boma dinner would be my choice. On many of my trips it is the only ADR I even bother to make.
