California Grill - reviews

This table service restaurant is located in the Disneyland Hotel.
This is the tour de force of culinary offerings in the Disneyland Paris Resort.
Considered to have the most extensive wine list and on the to-do list if you are looking for a fine dining experience; albeit at a price.
Have a look here for a look at the restaurant.


Link to other restaurant reviews

Okay as previously announced we are hoping the boards can help If you have photographs of the restaurant and the food. If you have eaten here and can write a review. Even a couple of lines of what you liked, things to watch out for.. would be appreciated if you posted below

The food in this restaurant is terrific! Very "chique, but our server didn't really fit in. He missed the necessary class. However if you're looking for fine cuisine with park view, go here. Other top restaurants in DLP are Manhattan and Yacht Club.

We dined at the CG a few weeks ago as our "Anniversary Meal" on our 4 day trip. We were booked in at Buffalow Bills but they tried to rip us off and we ruder than rude so we asked the Concierge at the DLH where we were staying what we could do instead for something special and she swung it for us to dine at the CG

We had a beautiful view of the castle and the food was fantastic. Highly recommend if you fancy something special and don't mind paying a little more.

Oh, girls - take a wrap with you, the air conditioning was a little chilly after a while!!

We ate there in June 2006 (so a little while ago). But back then the food and the atmosphere were great. I would eat there again every time.
Some pictures of the food and of the view that you can have from that restaurant can be found in my album here:

Thank you Marcus! The food does look gorgeous!

Was only enquiring because of the fussy nature of my partner!

Thanks again.

Is there a dress code here? Do people tend to dress up or is it casual?

When we have eaten there there is usually a mixture of both. Some people have come straight from the park, some have dressed for dinner. Most people seem to be smart casual though.

I'm not sure how often they update their menu (I would imagine quite often as they use in season produce.) But then menu posted above was not the menu we choose from last month. Maybe they have changed their menu since then though.

Thanks for the menu help, we'll be eating there tonight!

I'm a little disappointed though that the menu posted really looks nothing at all like the California Grill menu from Florida (one of my favorite restaurants anywhere.) I love the flatbreads (none on the Paris menu) and their beef tenderloin (may be on the Paris menu, we'll see.)

The California Grill at Paris is nothing like the California Grill at WDW, however they are both lovely restaurants but for different reasons. I couldn't choose which one I prefer as they are both really good. Have a great meal there tonight.

Is there a cocktail bar here?

The food all looks a bit fancy for me after a long day. But A drink and a lovely view would be just the ticket.

The cocktail bar is opposite the restaurant, it is called Cafe Fantasia. It does not have a view of the park, but does have a lovely view of Fantasia gardens.
