    This is a tough one...

    1. Le Celier - one of the best filet dishes I've ever had, I like the mellow atmosphere with the dim dining room. The pretzel bread sticks are amazing as well.

    2. Teppen Edo - Tried it here last year for the first time. and really enjoyed going again in April. Hibachi is always fun watching the Chefs put on a show while cooking you some delicous food. One other thing I enjoyed when we went was that the food in generally lighter than most other restaurants, felt like it didn't slow me down and make me want to take a nap after dinner hahah

    3. Coral Reef - First off I HATE seafood but I enjoyed it here. The huge fish tank seems to create a relaxing atmosphere and a nice place to dine with your significant other. I had the chicken ceasar salad that was outstanding.

    1. Le chefs de france- St. Germaine cocktail, enough said :) But also onion soup, quiche, macaroni, and because french is a type of food we cannot get at home.

    2. Biergarten- because of the great atmosphere and theming, wonderful beers, and great selection of good food

    3. Via Napoli- because it's the most authentic Italian pizza outside of Italy that I've had

    1) Via Napoli - LOVE their pizza (4 cheese and pepperoni are incredible) and the zepolle dessert. To die for! Plus the atmosphere here was my fave.

    2) Tutto Italia - Amazing pasta, esp lasagna & fetuccini alfredo!

    3) Chefs/France - food is incredible. love the apps, love the short ribs. so tender and tasty. YUM!

    4) Teppan Edo - great food & fun show.

    (sorry, had to add Teppan!)

    1. Via Napoli: The four cheese pizza is to die for! Love the atmosphere as well, especially when you are seated with a view of the ovens.

    2. Le Cellier: Absolutely love the filet and pretzel bread.

    3. Chefs de France: Awesome spot for lunch. Lobster bisque, mac & cheese, and profiteroles make a great meal!

    1. Tangierine Café. Yup, a QS restaurant. The food is great (and somewhat out of the ordinary), relatively inexpensive, and fresh.

    2. Via Napoli: Really good food, the best pizza you will find on property, and those great ovens can be a draw for kids. I like the appetizer plates.

    3. Akershus Princess Storybook Breakfast. I have two fairly young daughters, and the price, princess interaction, and food quality at Akershus really tops CRT in my book. So, I think it's the best princess meal on property, and getting in before park opening puts me in a good position to grab Soarin' FastPasses ASAP.

    3 favorite places to eat in Epcot, I am going to include our QS & TS places.


    #1 - Rose & Crown - Love the Iced Tea here, so soothing and good. We really enjoy the food, atmosphere, & I agree good beers. It is our hidden gem.

    #2 - Tutto - Great Food, we really love the atmosphere here also.

    #3 - LeCellier - DH loves this place, good steaks, fries, & Chocolate Moose for dessert (yes, misspelled on purpose!)


    #1 - Cantina in Mexico, we love those Nachos

    #2 - Yorkshire Fish & Chips in UK - Really Good Fish & Chips, the area is beautiful!

    We are going to try these places in June 2013:

    Via Napoli
    Tangierine Cafe
    Boulangerie Patisserie

    1) Via Napoli; OMG delicious!
    2)San Angel Inn; great atmosphere, better service and food than La Hacienda, in our opinion
    3)Nine Dragons; totally underrated. beautiful atmosphere, great service, too bad everyone orders the most generic thing on the menu (honey chicken) and then complains that it's 'typical chinese food'.

    1. Le Cellier. Hands down the best steak for my buck at Disney. Love the slightly more relaxed atmosphere in the restaurant and the dimmer lighting. The servers have always been top-notch friendly to us (even when they're dealing with my ridiculous menu choices!). LOVE the pretzel bread and cheddar cheese soup. No questions asked, my favourite appetizer combo on property.

    2. Les Chefs de France for lunch. LOVELOVELOVE the Prix Fixe menu. Soupe à l'oignon gratinée, then gratin de macaroni, finishing up with crème brulée or the profiteroles au chocolat. I speak French and that always seems to make the servers smile. I'll order in French for the table and then they ask where I learned to speak the language and the next thing I know, servers from other tables are coming over to say hello. It was great to eat there right after coming back from a study abroad in Dijon and having our waiter be from Beaune (one of the next towns over). We had a great time discussing the region! And now that I'm 21, I can't wait to try out their wine selection.

    3. Teppan Edo. Great atmosphere! The chefs at your grill are very amusing and skilled at their job and the food is very yummy! The waitress even convinced my dad to use chopsticks and he had no prior experience with them! It was very funny to watch, but he enjoyed learning. Now he uses them whenever we eat at any restaurant which will provide them.

    I've done all CS and TS except for Nine Dragons.

    My order would be:

    1. Tangierine Cafe-CS in Morocco. I love the chicken platter. It comes with 5 different things that are all very good. I love the quality for the price and I love the variety.

    2. Rose & Crown-in the pub. I love to drink there and I love to eat a Scotch Egg. The food in the dining room is okay but it's really the pub and the Scotch egg that gets the ranking here.

    3. Biergarten-I'm so not a fan of buffets but I love the atmosphere. I enjoy the band and watching the children dance. The food is decent.

    I'm eating at Mons. Paul next week and I'm hoping it goes back to the top of the list the way the old Bistro de Paris was back in years gone by.

    I would put Via Napoli, pizza only, as 4th. I enjoy it because the pizza is very close to what I remember in Italy. It's the only place in Epcot where I have felt the authenticity was there.

    QS - Tangerine Cafe in Morocco! Nice pita, with Lamb/Chicken gyro meat, cous-cous, lentil salad and hummus! Such a nice lunch, we've been going since it opened, always stellar!

    TS - Le Cellier, again, we've been going since it opened, I've always had a great meal, NY Strip perfectly medium rare, full of flavor, Canadian Beer Cheese Soup and maple creme brulee!

    3rd choice - Newest kid on the block, VIa Napoli, love the Frito Misto appetizer platter w/ calamari, tempura veggies, arancini etc. and the pizza is thin, cheesy and full of flavor! Comes hot to the table, can't ask for anything better!

    GS Honorable mentions: Fish and Chips w/ Malt vinegar from Great Britain and ham and cheese baguette w/ creme brulee from France.

    Akershus - because my daughter loves the Princesses....and my wife prefers the interaction (i.e., Conga-line) over Cinderella's Royal Table.

    Rose & Crown - maybe no better place to see Illuminations. Good beer along with Fish & Chips. Not fancy, but why should a pub be fancy.

    Coral Reef - some folks are not into the small'ish portions. Others have found service to be lacking all too often. We love the ambiance of the extraordinary fish tank and have never had problems with food quality or service.

    Please note, my selections were seemingly not about food quality, but overall experience. And if you don;t mind - each are uniquely Disney experiences. Ya'see for better or worse (better, I think), I am able to get good food where I live, but I cannot see Princesses interact with my child, I cannot get a light show of Illuminations from my dining table, and I cannot sit in what feels like a large fish tank.

    P.S. I'd also like to give an Honorable Mention to Club Cool and the free soda samples from around the world.:cheer2:
