Just a thought, some of the restaurants do an 'express' menu (sometimes! I knew I wanted to eat from it in June in Blue Lagoon but it wasn't advertised, so I asked and they brought me the menu). It is really good value, 2 courses and is served and you can be finished in under 40 mins (and we were, although we hung about with drinks etc). I'm sure you would love the Blue Lagoon - it has a nice atmosphere and would be a nice place to eat if only there one day, but don't want to spend all your time sitting around in a restaurant.

If you have a look at the Blue Lagoon menu reviews, I posted on there when I came back in June .

ETA - if you are going when not many counter service places are open and the park is busy (it will be on dec 1st as it's a sat) then honestly, you could end up queuing for 25 - 30 mins just to order and might have difficulty finding somewhere to sit! So, actually, 40 mins max at the Blue Lagoon is quite good.

It is, but the table service places make up for it. I'd second what DLPdaft said about asking for the express menu at Walt's (first choice) or Blue Lagoon (second choice).

Walt's was this one - it is still Steak - Fish -Risotto that I do know but the veg might have changed



And this was Blue Lagoon - they no longer have them on display outside the restaurant and at the reservation desk neither so I don't have any latest photos Next person who eats there could maybe take some of the menu that they get given once seated

I agree Elaine, and we really enjoyed Blue Lagoon earlier this month, never ever thought we would get Joshua in somewhere like that.
However, the cost is extremely high, it cost us 93 euro's for the 3 of us.
I suppose just dining there once on a trip is sufficient though, and you could also argue that fine dining in the UK would cost as much and you could also argue you won't be able to wave at people going by on the Pirates Of The Caribbean too! So cost is what you are prepared to pay I assume.

I find Toad Hall the exception as far as Counter Service goes as it's fairly good value for money and the fish n chips pretty good (bearing in mind where I live Friday every week of the year is 'chippy for tea!).

Yes it is a little more expensive but as you say, you are paying for the experience. Tbh when it is cold outside (as it will be), it is nice to have a warm, clean table to eat at and sit down, if quite a few CS places are closed (which may, or may not be the case) then it can make it hard to get tables, and likely most people won't want to take it outside due to the weather!. Plus, I think 19.99 euros for a 2 course meal with coffee is reasonable, especially when you factor what you end up paying for CS anyway sometimes in DLRP (and how long you queue, they really DON'T get fast food in DLRP!).

If we can fit it in, we will probably do one express lunch instead of CS as you don't get that much more food. I just have a horrible feeling quite a few CS places will be closed and the park will be heaving (Sat 1st Dec as per OP date), that always creates issues with somewhere to eat/queues etc. Book a table and have an express meal, and you are sorted.

We had the express menu at Walts back in may and I couldnt fault it. It was perfect, didnt have to wait or que for ages and for what we got we found it was great value. For CS I like Toad Hall but am going to try Victorias as the menu seemed a bit different and I think we may try Hakuna Matata for a change next trip also. Markethouse Deli has a good selection but its like the never ending meal in our house as we always seem to end up eating there!
