    Epcot Dining

    There are so many choices in World Showcase in Epcot, but I've kinda been stuck in a rut everytime I go to WDW. I got to France, I go to Mexico, I'd like to try a new dining experience there. We're going next month, haven't been since '06, anyone care to list any current favs?
    Thanks in advance!

    Re: Epcot Dining

    Soooo you're thread title is "Epcot Dining" but you mention just the World Showcase. Have you ever ventured out of World Showcase?

    Pricey but absolutely amazing: Coral Reef

    Ordered the crab cake appetizer. Assumed that since it was like $9, that it was just a typo that it said "crab cake" and not "crab cakes". I was wrong BUT that single crab cake I would've paid $20 for.

    Family Style Yumminess: Garden Grill

    Each time we've gone, the menu was switched up a bit but each time it's been fantastic. Plus you just can't beat visits from Mickey, Plut, Chip and Dale!

    Side note: If this question was posed to me a few years back I would've told you're crazy if you don't give Alfredo's a try. Gosh I miss that place. I've no idea what it's replacement is like over there in Italy but I've heard good things!

    I really like Via Napoli in Italy. My whole family really enjoyed it- yummy food and nice atmosphere. Plus it's neat to check out their 3 wood burning ovens named after the volcanoes in Italy.

    I totally forgot about Garden Grill! Yummy! My Veggie Girl will probably LOVE that.

    You know, I've seen Via Napoli mentioned before. We might give that a try. What about Japan? Anybody experienced any of the yummies they have to offer?

    We've really enjoyed the Garden Grill and Tangerine Cafe.

    Re: Epcot Dining

    Just a quick correction: Tutto Italia replaced Alfredo's. Via Napoli is the new building they built specifically for the restaurant.

    I would recommend Via Napoli. It's fantastic and actually the prices aren't terrible. Tutto Italia is good, but I just can't get on board with paying that much for pasta...

    Teppan Edo is always a good time too!

    Re: Epcot Dining

    I don't really care for the place in Japan, but its not because its not good. Close to where I live, there are a few teppan style Japanese restaurants that charge half of the price of what Disney does for equal or more food, depending on where you go. Because of that, we usually avoid Teppan Edo since we can get the same experience for cheaper at home.

    My personal favorites are Garden Grill, Le Cellier, Via Napoli and Tutto Italia.

    Re: Epcot Dining

    Teppan Edo is a good choice. It's fun to watch the chef prepare your food on the grill. I usually visit Le Cellier, but reservations fill up quickly so call well in advance.

    I am going to try the Biergarten on my next visit and a return visit to Marrakesh, after a long absence. I agree, it is easy to get into a pattern of the same table service restaurants each visit; I am going to break that pattern this time! Good luck.

    Welcome to the Magic Kingdom!

    Oh I totally forgot about Biergarten! That's a great suggestion!

    Nine Dragons in China is my personal fave, but I also loved Le Chellier. If you go to Nine Dragons, they have an amazing bar menu and their Honey Sesame Chicken is incredible!

    I'm also going with Teppan Edo. A bit pricey, but VERY good! My favorite WS restaurant. Rose and Crown is pretty good as well. Sunshine Seasons is definitely the best QS. The QS in the American Adventure is good if you're looking for your basic burgers and fries.
