Adults only dinner...

Jiko or Narcoosee's???

We know that we will like both styles of food- just curious about what the opinion is on which is the better of the two.

We usually eat at both while in DW. I would choose Jiko over Narcoossee's though. I like the food better there!!

I love LOVE love Boma...did I say I love it??? So, I KNOW I will love Jiko. I just keep thinking that if we do Jiko, then Boma will almost be a "repeat". Should I just scratch Boma this trip, go for breakfast???

I am changing everything around this trip. Mostly because I think that I am FINALLY going to do V & A too!!!

Another Jiko vote, I recall going to Narcoossees and thinking to myself that I liked Jiko better.

Jiko. But, if you do V & A, then Jiko will pale in comparison.

My wife and I prefer Narcoossee's.

There are several reasons we do:
1. We stay at the Poly. It's a quick monorail ride there from our hotel. Jiko is a bus ride there, and usually a $20 cab ride back to the Poly (we go in February, and parks close early. Eat late, as we do, and you're paying for a cab).
2. Jiko's room is a big cave. Windows on one wall only, and nothing to see outside but the pool. Narcoossee has the panoramic windows overlooking the 7 seas lagoon, and every seat has a view. Past the lagoon, you can see the MK. If you plan your dining time, you'll also see Wishes and/or the evening light show on the lagoon.
3. Jiko didn't really have authentic African continent food. All of it was "inspired" or had an "inspired" accompaniment to a main course I could get at any number of Disney owned restaurants. Narcoossee's isn't trying to be something it's not, like Jiko seems to be.
4. Almond Crusted Cheesecake at Narcoossee's.
5. Whole fresh Maine Lobster at Narcoossee's.
