Weekly Top 10: The Best Restaurants at Walt Disney World

Published: January 26, 2015 at 10:35 AM

Where is your favorite place to eat at the Walt Disney World Resort? Theme Park Insider readers have been rating and reviewing the restaurants in the Disney World theme parks, and here are our top 10 highest-rated table-service restaurants in the parks. If you'd like to have your say for our weekly Top 10 lists, just visit our "Park Guides" section and click through to the parks you've visited recently to rate and review their rides, shows, restaurants, and hotels.

10. Restaurant Marrakesh
Epcot

Restaurant Marrakesh

Somewhat hidden in the back of the Moroccan pavilion in Epcot's World Showcase, Restaurant Marrakesh wins high marks from readers who like its north African cuisine and often easy-to-book tables. But if tagines, roast lamb, lemon chicken and the like aren't your favorites, you'll find more popular options on this list.

9. Chefs de France
Epcot

Chefs de France

The downstairs restaurant in World Showcase's France pavilion, Chefs de France offers a variety of French bistro fare, including a Croque Monsieur at lunch and duck, salmon and beef selections at dinner.

8. Via Napoli
Epcot

Via Napoli

Patina Group's pizza restaurant sits at the back of Epcot's Italy pavilion, baking its Neapolitan thin-crust, wood-fired pies in three ovens named for Italy's famous volcanoes: Etna, Stromboli, and Vesuvius.

7. Biergarten
Epcot

Biergarten

It is Oktoberfest every day at this buffet in World Showcase's Germany pavilion, with an oompah band and diners singing and dancing along with the performers.

6. Le Cellier Steakhouse
Epcot

Le Cellier Steakhouse

Themed the wine cellars of historic Canada hotels, Le Cellier's most popular dish might be its Cheddar Cheese Soup, available at lunch and dinner. You'll also find a selection of beef, venison, pork, chicken, salmon, and pasta.

5. Liberty Tree Tavern
Magic Kingdom

Liberty Tree Tavern

The first restaurant outside Epcot to make our list, the Magic Kingdom's Liberty Tree serves lunch to order, with pot roast, roast turkey, hamburgers, and salads, while dinner offers a fixed-price menu of roasted meats and sides, served family-style.

4. Teppan Edo
Epcot

Teppan Edo

And now, back to Epcot for this Japanese Teppanyaki-style restaurant, offering a variety of steak, chicken, shrimp and scallop combinations, as well as sushi and appetizers.

3. The Hollywood Brown Derby
Disney's Hollywood Studios

The Hollywood Brown Derby

A replica of the original (and now demolished) Brown Derby restaurant in Los Angeles, this table service restaurant is the Studios' top dining experience — and its most expensive. The Brown Derby's most famous dish was the Cobb salad (named for Bob Cobb, the original restaurant's owner), and you'll find it on the menu here as an appetizer or entree, served with the original Cobb dressing.

2. Be Our Guest
Magic Kingdom

Be Our Guest

The toughest table to book in the Disney theme parks, Be Our Guest offers three dining rooms depicted in or inspired by the Disney's Best Picture Academy Award-nominated animated classic, Beauty and the Beast. The French bistro-inspired menu includes steak, chicken, salmon, pork, and lamb at dinner and a selection of salads and sandwiches at lunch.

1. Monsieur Paul
Epcot

Monsieur Paul

Our readers' choice for the top restaurant in the Walt Disney World theme parks, Monsieur Paul is named for legendary French chef Paul Bocuse, whose family operates both of the France pavilion's table-service restaurants. The restaurant's signature dish might be its "Soupe aux truffes VGE." Created by Bocuse and named for former French President Valéry Giscard d'Estaing (the VGE in the title), the soup offers beef broth and finely diced oxtail, carrots, onions and celery, with a larger dice of mushroom pate, flavored with generous slices of black winter truffle and crowned with puff pastry.
