Whether it was good or not, the food certainly looks amazing!
While you tried to devise a pantomime routine to tell the host your seating time, did he stride toward you with your priority seating ticket in his hand and ask, "Mr. Robert Niles?"
The fact is though it really is a little hidden gem in the park, all too often I read about people visiting DLRP and complaining about the junk food that's being offered, many people who are not Disney maniacs do not realize there are several excelent restaurants in and around the parks that serve up perfectly fine food. And if you check out the set menu offers, there are menu's starting at around 29 euro's at Walt's for a two course meal.
I do think that DLRP is not really promoting the restaurant options all too well, opening times are nowhere to be found and strangely enough they planned the daytime parade at 19.00 o'clock .. wich is the prime time to have dinner, wich seems so strange to me.
Also really worth a visit is the Inventions buffet restaurant in the Disneyland hotel, more expensive at 59 euro's for an adult or 29 euro's for a child, but the location is awesome, the choises are superb and Disney characters roam the tables all evening, that and you get a view down mainstreet towards the castle!
a good place I always start is http://www.dlrpmagic.com/planning/dining/restaurant-menus/ wich gives way more information and all the menu's that the official website does not.(they really could do a better job at the official website)
I'll be there the first weekend of August en look forward to enjoying a diner at the blue lagoon (inside the potc attraction) Walt's and the Inventions restaurant.
Actually, the front desk host at Walt's was multilingual (as are many of the cast members at DLP). We were noted in the reservation system as English-speaking, so we were given English menus and assigned an English-speaking waitress.
That said, my daughter takes French, and she helped us learn enough of the language to order entirely in French at the counter service places.
Anyway, the food at DLP (and France) is usually pretty top notch. I actually like, god help me, Chicago Steakhouse. As a native Chicagoian, I was impressed. The service at the place was outstanding!
