I would have to say GF Cafe and Olivias. We have never had nothing but great experiences there and the crowds are always low!

Restaurant Marrakesh for us. We can almost always just walk in and we have never had a bad meal. Plus I love watching the kids dance in the center! So cute.

The Wave is very nice and Kona Cafe was wonderful. Our greatest surprise during our last visit was Il Mulino in the Swan and Big River at the Boardwalk. I may have to make a reservation for Sanaa when we do our resort-hopping day!

For me besides the Grand Floridian Cafe, would be the Captains Grille at YC. What I liked about CG is that it is nice to get away from all the over-the-top theming for just a couple of hours, enjoy a nice quite restaurant, good service, and good food. All of these we have experience the three times we have been there.

I love Olivia's at Old Key West Resort.
And I totally agree with you. We've eaten at Olivia's many times. They have a really good bacon cheeseburger, as well as a Cuban that is one of our staples for lunch! For dinner, love the whole leaf Caesar salad, the NY Strip and the prime rib! We've always had good food!

Another new favorite, The Turf Club at SSR! Also good prime rib, fantastic stuffed mushrooms.

Sometimes, it's nice to have a quieter meal away from the parks!

We've enjoyed Marrakesh since it opened, we eat there every couple of years and the food, the music, the belly dancer makes for a lovely dinner!

We've never had a bad meal at Paradiso 37 and I love warm nights where you can sit outside overlooking the lake. Kona for breakfast is another must-do. I will have to check out the Grand Floridian cafe!

GF Cafe for lunch! Cobb salad for me and GF burger for DH. It is also a burger with lobster on top.

This will be a first on this board, but we loved Maya Grill at CSR last trip. Lovely atmosphere, great service and terrific food. Maybe because mexican/southwest food is harder to come by where we are from? On the flip side, we didn't love Kouzzina because DH is Greek and we can get some of the best Greek food outside of Greece here in Toronto. I guess it's what you're used to.
