great reviews, love the pics! I'm surprised how good the food looked at nine dragons, every review I've seen of that place has been negative.

Their sushi is always really good. I know what you mean about trying to squeeze too many restaurants into one trip though!

Thank you. I was surprised how nice nine dragons was, considering I'd read mostly very bad reviews. It wasn't stunning food by any means, but it was better than I was expecting.

Yachtsman Steakhouse

We showed up a few minutes early for our 8pm reservation, we were told they were running 20 minutes behind and were asked to wait in the bar. The Crews Cup lounge was extremely crowded (mostly with people there for a conference it seemed). Yachtsman wasn’t using pagers, so the wait staff were walking around the bar trying to find parties as their tables were ready. When it’s very crowded this system just doesn’t work, I watched two cms wander round the bar for 10 minutes, and they still couldn’t find their parties.

We were called after around 15 minutes, and sat at a four top near the centre of the restaurant. It was very busy, and pretty loud, a definite contrast to Jiko the night before.

Our server was ok here, friendly but slow to greet us and bring drinks. She did bring the bread basket, including the amazing pull apart onion rolls, so good with roasted garlic.

For my appetizer I chose seared scallops served with roasted bell pepper hummus. This was very nice, scallops well cooked and paired well with the pepper hummus. My only issue was it could have been served hotter.


DH had cheese plate. This was a nice plate, similar cheeses to Jiko but not quite as good a range of accompaniments. The cheeses were Cypress Grove Creamery Mt Chopper, Beeches Cheddar, Cowgirl Creamery Mt Tam, and Roaring Forties blue. All the cheeses were good, but the Mt Tam and the blue cheese were DH’s favourites.


The pacing of the meal wasn’t great here with the entrees arriving before DH had finished his cheese plate.
I picked the Fillet Mignon with mashed potatoes and Cabernet wine sauce. The fillet cooked to a perfect medium, and was a very nice cut of meat, there was very little fat and sliced very easily. The mash was so creamy and buttery it was delicious, it was a huge portion of potatoes though and it was disappointing to have to leave it. The wine sauce had good flavour to it and worked well with mash and fillet.


DH chose the Salmon, which was also very well cooked to a medium rare. This was a very light dish with no real starch, as the salmon was served with peas, beetroot and baby carrots, all of which were nicely cooked. DH enjoyed this, he thought it was a similar style of dish to Artist Point but salmon was cooked better.


For dessert I chose the Lemon Pudding cake. This was served with a blueberry shake, Mt Tam cheese and Fruit Leather. The Lemon pudding incredibly moist, with a strong lemon flavour, and was only a little portion so made a nice light end to meal. The Blueberry shake was also good, creamy in texture with a strong blueberry flavour. The Mt tam cheese was nice, but didn’t go with rest for of the plate for me. It was basically a small piece of grilled cheese with sultanas and dried fruit, this was too much of a contrast between sweet and savoury for my tastes.


DH chose the Chocolate-Peanut:Chocolate brownie, smoked peanut panna cotta and vanilla gelato. The chocolate brownie cake was moist, with a good chocolate flavour, which paired well with the smooth peanut panna cotta. The gelato was served in a mini cone, which was clever presentation. Overall a lovely dessert.


After we’d settled the check we were given a plate of candy for our anniversary, this consisted of apricot jelly sweets and chocolate covered salted caramel, which was a very nice end to meal.

Overall we enjoyed this meal, but was probably our least favourite signature of the trip. The restaurant was very loud, the meal wasn’t very well paced, and the food was good but not amazing. We will return, but if I had to skip a signature restaurant, this would probably be the one we’d drop.

'Ohana

We had 7:35 reservation at 'Ohana and were sat at a two top by the window as soon as they started seating. We were in a great location as the characters came out a few tables behind us, so we saw all four before 8am.

The place filled up quite quickly, but because it’s family style it didn’t seem anywhere an near as loud or chaotic as Chef Mickeys, making it a reasonably relaxed atmosphere for character meal

Our server was good, brought fruit plate and drinks promptly. The POG juice was delicious, and had about 3 glasses.

We started with the welcome breads which were gorgeous. The cinamon raisin was our favourite, so moist and sticky, the pineapple-coconut were good too and this was our favourite part of meal.


The fruit was nice and ripe, and we managed to eat most of it. It took a while for hot plate to be delivered, and once it did it had to be sent back as had meat on it. Therefore we got the mickey waffles first. These were also good, very hot and fresh.



The hot Platter the arrived with the meat on side. The sausage was good, with a slightly spicy taste, and not too greasy. I’m not a bacon fan so left that, the scrambled eggs were nicely seasoned and hot, the potatoes were good with a crispy coating. I didn’t have a biscuit but DH said it was fine, a little dry.


We were offered refills of anything we wanted but declined, as we’d had enough. We settled the check by 8:15, after seeing all four characters and we were able to easily make rope drop at Magic Kingdom.

Was it just me or did that salmon from Yachtsman,although beautiful, look like it has hair&is flying? Thanks for the reviews, hearing the Yachtsmen was loud kind of made my mind up for me - a loud Signature + 3 kids = perfect for us

The filet and potatos look amazing. I really need some of that cinnamon bread too.
