Adult dinner in Epcot?

We are planning our October trip right now. We have been to the world several times but are bringing friends that have never been. Both families are families of four but one night we are leaving kids with sitter. We would like to dine in epcot. Where should we go? Italy? France? Mexico? We all love different types of food. It will be Food and Wine festival so should we just try different items from the carts? Help please

Monsieur Paul is best food and most adult atmosphere inside Epcot. We enjoyed our dinner here and thought it was almost as good as the old Bistro de Paris of several years ago.

My favorite in the Epcot area is Bluezoo at the Dolphin. It's the only restaurant I go to every vacation.

These are great suggestions for an adult night out.

Although i love chefs de france, id probably go with Monsieur Paul.

An adult night out in Epcot used to be very do-able and very enjoyable (before Disney Dining Plan and free dining). I'm assuming that, by adult night, you mean sans kids (yours and others').

Now, the only sane thing to do for an adult night out is to leave Epcot and go to one of the other restaurants in the area -- Shula's, Blue Zoo, Il Mulino, Flying Fish Cafe. The only other adult option within Epcot would be Marrakesh, which is not as popular or crowded as the other Epcot places.

If you choose to dine in Epcot you will be so surrounded by other people's kids (running, fighting, hitting, pulling hair, rolling on the floor, shouting) that you might as well skip "adult night" and bring yours along as well. This goes for Monsieur Paul's as well. Even though we have not eaten there since it became Monsieur Paul's, we had a horrible experience with the place overrun by kids when it was still Bistro de Paris. It can only have gotten worse since they re-tooled the restaurant to make it more "family friendly". Oy vey!

Since your trip is in October, why not take the night and graze around the F&W kiosks without any kids around? There are tons of items to try. It really is a lot of fun and may be something you might enjoy without the kids around.

Another vote for enjoying the F&W Festival! Dining and having drinks (if you so desire) from the various kiosks can be really difficult when you have kids with you -- hard to juggle getting everyone something, finding a place to sit, etc. But it's much easier for adults to stroll, and to be happy/comfortable if one or two people are eating while others are sipping a beverage and looking for what they'd like to try. Easier for adults to eat and stroll, graze, try different things, IMHO. And also, there's no pressure to finish your meal and give up your table (if you do want to sit and linger, that's a good reason to branch out to eat at a resort and not in a park).


Enjoy~~~

May I suggest, that you have dinner at Flying Fish, great place for a adut meal, the later you have dinner the less children seem to be in the resturants, You could go over to epcot 1st and try a few different adult beverages, before heading out the back gate over to Flying Fish, or any of the boardwalk resturants.

I agree. Since you're fortunate enough to visit during F & W, why not take advatage? Also, with so many adults you can do more by splitting up and getting in different lines to order for everyone.

Have fun and enjoy!

We dined there Christmas week and because the kids menu is not accommodating, it was very adult. Much more so than Flying Fish was with our 9:30 dinner there.

I agree about Bluezoo, Haven't been to Disney to try Monsieur Paul's yet but what is it that left you a bit wanting in comparison to the Bistro?

If you are in Epcot on a weekend evening, make yourself a restaurant reservation, don't stick to just the Festival food kiosks. Crowds there are highest on Friday and Saturday evenings. This would be a good option on a weekday, but I can't recommend it on a weekend.
