1) Chefs de France (lunch). We've eaten here twice now, and it was hands down the best meal our our trip last week. Amazing service and excellent food (French Onion Soup, Macaroni Gratin, and Profiteroles )

2)Rose & Crown. We loved the Cottage Pie and Sticky Toffee Pudding. Service was very good as well.

3)I've never eaten at Biergarten, but my best friend from the WDWCP eats at this restaurant, and only this restaurant, when he wants a table service meal.

Hands down, the best KP I've had though!
My DH ordered this the last time we went, and the waitress was new and trying to communicate how hot it was. She even had a manager come over to tell him how hot it was. He loved it but did say it was spicy. I had the Almond Chicken I believe and I loved it. The kids had different things but they all loved their food too. We would go back here.

We do not do a lot of ADRs so I don't have a list of TS for good food. (We have only done Germany and China for TS)

But I did like the CS place in Mexico, the Nachos were SO good. We also had a 'few' drinks around the world and they were all good. I especially like the slushies in France.

I really want to try a few of the restaurants that are listed, if I can ever have a trip with just my DH. He hates ADRs when we have the kids with us.

I'll vote for

Teppan Edo but I wish they took tables in wonderland..

Via Napoli-I have been to Italy and this is the closest to real pizza I have had

Biergarten-love the atmosphere and the food wehn cooked correctly is very close to what I ate in Germany

I used to love Akershaus before they invited the princesses in. It was way more authentic back then.....

We tried San Angel Inn our last trip for the first time in ten years and it had improved greatly...it will be back on our rotation!

We ate at Tangierine Cafe for lunch (CS) and it was the most flavorful and wonderful meal of our trip. I got the chicken Shamwara Platter and the meat was tender and succulent. They must have marinated it for days! My cousin got a lamb dish and said that the lamb was cooked perfectly as well. It came with some amazing hummus and couscous, and baklava for dessert. My mouth is watering just typing this!!

We ate at La Hacienda for dinner, and while it was tasty (we both got the pork), nothing to write home about. The salsa that came with the chips tasted like BBQ sauce and ketchup, and the empanadas were more like an apple turnover. A let down after a great meal in Morocco, but not inedible by any means. I really enjoyed the pork.

I would not recommend the gelato stand in Italy. That is NOT gelato, in fact I found it pretty flavorless. Huge disappointment.

1 - La Cantina de San Angel - I don't care if its quick service, I like it much better than its table service big brother. I could eat there chipotle salsa from those ketchup type containers all day long.

2 - Via Napoli - Love brick oven pizza, but there's is better than average.

3 - Coral Reef - I like sea food so this is easy. And the atmospher is great. Everytime I eat here I think of that old Full House episode when they visited Disney World!

I like the peppery shrimp with spinach noodles.

As for my favorite restaurants:

Marrakesh - I like the atmosphere, it is not overly crowded, and the food is different.
Tokyo Dining - everything I have eaten there has been very good. I like view.
Coral reef - my food has always been excellent, they have tasty desserts, and I think all the seats are great. Service is unpredictable though. I like to go during off times (late lunch or early dinner), ths way it is a more atmosphere.

Just based on food, Via Napoli, La Hacienda (has quit taking TIW) and there really is no third TS. Just had a shawarma platter at Tangierine and thought the chicken was good. The lamb was dry, though.

For me it's:

1. Sunshine Seasons - Great food, good selection and resonably priced (for Disney).

2. - La Cantina De San Angel - The churros.

3. - Le Cellier - Great atmosphere and good food, especially the filet mignon with risotto.

In no paticular order:

1. Biergarten in Germany - just so much fun with the show and I love German food, and being Veg I can always find a few things. Although I do miss a good brat

2. Chefs De France - just love the atmosphere and the food

3. Bistro de Paris (now Monsieur Pauls?) - again great food and atomosphere, a little more private, quiet and romantic. The only restaurant in Epcot that is on the second floor I think, so if you get a table by a window you get some great views.
Tokyo Dining is also on the second floor, and there are great views. Teppan Edo is on the second floor as well, but it lacks the views.

CS- Sunshine Seasons, UK fish stand, snacks @ Germany and France bakery.

TS- Garden Grill for characters and food, Le Chefs, La Hacienda (but I agree about the salsa, it tastes like bbq sauce!)

We are trying Via Napoli next trip.

Coral Reef - the aquarium is great
Le Cellier - wonderful steaks, it's now a two TS credit, but lunch is only 1 credit
La Cantina de San Angel - great food for a CS credit.
