Favorite Restaurant on the Fantasy

What was your favorite restaurant on the Fantasy? We have been on the Magic twice but this is the first time on the Fantasy....

I have been to Pallo on the Magic and thought it was wonderful and can't imagine that it would get better but that is what I am hearing. What about the rotational restaurants?

Royal Court on the Fantasy was nicely furnished, right down to the bread baskets shaped like Cinderella's Coach. Would love to bring one of those home (legally.)

Both the Crush show and the Animation show in Animator's Palate were fun -- Disney Imagineering at its finest.

If you take out Remy and Palo, and only include rotational restaurants- my favorite was Royal Court- I had both my favorite dinner (rotational) and favorite lunch there. The food is most important to me. The Animation Magic Show made Animator's Palate the most enjoyable if you take food out of the equation. Enchanted Garden was pretty good but if I had to miss one (on the Fantasy that is) that would be it.

Great! thanks for the info. We can't wait to experience this being a different ship there will be so much more. We are taking a first time cruiser family with us too.

I think Enchanted Garden's theme really disappoints, but I suppose is better than Parrot Cay. Animation Magic is by far the best innovation on the Fantasy.

Another vote for Remy!

Of the MDRs: Royal Court, Enchanted Garden then Animators. In that order. However, if traveling with kids, I'd probably reverse the order. The kids would be more impressed with the animation than the elegance of Royal Court.

I did not go to Palo's or Remy's on my December trip. My favorite place to eat was Cabana's. I will never be a foodie critic but hey, I really liked it.

Madduck, why not Remy?

We leave in a few weeks. I booked Palo, but not Remy because we are not wine/champagne drinkers, so I don't know that we'll get our money's worth.

Please enlighten me.

I LOVE Enchanted Garden...it just goes to show that everyone likes something different!
My least favorite is the first night in Animators...I HATE the Crush show...way too loud and distracting.
I've not done Remy, I just can't justify the cost.

For dinners, my favorite rotational menu is Enchanted Garden, then Royal Court/Palace, then Animators.

For breakfast, I prefer Enchanted Garden...its a buffet, but less hectic than Cabanas, and they make these amazing croissant sandwiches with ham and cheese (I add scrambled eggs...yum!).

If you are doing 7 nights, make sure you experience breakfast in all of your options...they are all great for different reasons!

Have a great cruise!

For MDR's: Animator's by far. I like the look and feel of Enchanted Gardens. My least favorite would be Royal. That could have been done up better. The food is excellent in each restaurant. Next cruise DW and I do Remy. So I will be able to comment on that later.

Remy. I've eaten at Remy and Palo and I did not find them comparable. I would compare Palo to a high-end chain restaurant like Morton's or Ruth's Chris. Very good, no question, but not memorable. Remy delivered one of the best meals and experiences we've ever had. Cannot recommend it enough.
