A three-course, fixed-price meal for adults and children, hosted by The Little Mermaid's Ariel and her "beachcombing Disney friends." (Note that this restaurant is no longer operated by Wolfgang Puck, as it was when California Adventure opened and it was called Avalon Cove.)

It was great! The food's really yummy - :) - and the service is excellent - not that I would expect any less from Disney. Definitely the best resturaunt in Paradise Pier, and not because it's currently the only resturaunt @ the boardwalk - Reggie Templeton

i spent 2 hours at ariels grotto, 15 minutes of which were spent actually eating. when the food finally arrived it was awful! there were 5 of us and 4 of us got ill from the meals. my son was the worst hit, he spent quite awhile in the men's room. when i finally got to speak to the supervisor about our ordeal there was no compensation. my whole party was very disappointed. i think the best way to enjoy disneyland and the california adventure is to bring your own food and not rely on the overpriced nauseating food that is provided inside the parks. - mo ballard
