Need a new EPCOT restaurant...

I am not one to try new things, but I'm going to force myself to do this. We have eaten at Biergarten (one of my favorites), Coral Reef, San Angel Inn, and soon Via Napoli.

I'd like to hear opinions on some of the other EPCOT restaurants. The only foods I don't eat include seafood.

Thank you!

We have eaten at Le Chefs last November and it was a decent experience. I'm glad we tried it one time, but don't really know if I would include that one again. I ate from the price fixe menu--a soup, roasted chicken and veggies and a great creme brulee. It did feel somewhat rushed though.

Well, SAI is one of my favs, and Biergarten has a cool atmosphere, so you got those two.

I actually like the Rose and Crown. It's got a bit of a mellow vibe to it I think.

I would not recommend the Chinese place. Its decor is very pretty but the food is so-so, and I think overpriced. (Even for Disney.)

And if you can get into Le Cellier for lunch, I would definitely do it.

Honestly I think one of the funnest experiences you can have at Epcot is to wander from counter service to counter service and try various pastries and dishes. (This is the case whether or not the Food and Wine festival is going on.) I love the pastries at France and also am dying to try to the ones at Norway. Germany seems to be a popular place as well.

La Hacienda de San Angel, hands down.

Other good options would be Le Cellier (if you can get it) or Rose & Crown.

Le Cellier Lunch is our families must do every trip!
Tutto, really enjoyed our meal here.

Are you traveling with children? The Garden Grill is a fun place. The food is good (served family-style) and you get lots of interaction with the characters. We also really like Le Cellier! It's probably our favorite restaurant in Epcot. On the DDP, it's 2 TS credits for dinner and 1 TS credit for lunch.

The one place that we will never return to in Epcot is Restaurant Marrakesh. We found the food and atmosphere to be very boring. We do, however, love the counter service spot in the Morocco Pavilion! It's called Tangerine Cafe.

My wife and I were not big fans of Via Napoli. The food was cold and the service pretty poor when we went earlier this year.

Le Cellier is excellent!

We also enjoy Teppan Edo for the experience. The food is good, but we have found the portions to be a bit small and perhaps a bit overpriced (but then again, I think you are also paying towards the entertainment a bit).

We'd recommend you try either of those!

Le Cellier for lunch, it's only one credit at lunch. Amazing meal and atmosphere.

Some that we like that you haven't tried: Agree with PP about the Le Cellier lunch! We also like Les Chefs de France and Teppan Edo! These are all restaurants that we have really enjoyed! You should look at the menus to see what Epcot restaurants really appeal to your taste buds, this might help you make your decision.

I'll be the contrarian... Le Cellier is "eh." It's a mediocre steakhouse experience, similar in quality to Outback.

Chefs De France -- I went in with low expectations, but I was overall impressed with the quality. While not exactly a gourmet fine dining French experience, it was fairly good French bistro food. Better than I expected.

You have Via Napoli coming up... Their pizzas may be among the best food at Epcot. In many ways, the most "authentic."

Trying Restaurant Marakesh and Tutto Italia in a couple weeks... Not quite sure what to expect.

That's because it's Bistro de Paris that's the gourmet restaurant, and Chefs is more casual bistro food (ironic, I know).

I really liked the restaurant in Morocco. I put off going there for years because I am not very adventurous when it comes to food, but finally decided I needed to just do it.

It was much nicer inside than I expected with good food that wasn't too exotic for me, and there was live entertainment as well. It felt like an adventure for me and I enjoyed it.

My kids love Teppan Edo, its one they clamor for when discussing going back.

I agree with this re: Le Cellier. I certainly wasnt impressed with the steak quality. Tasteless and fatty. The soup wasnt that good either. i'd try Chefs/France, Tutto, Via, or Teppan Edo.
