Blue Bayou Restaurant reviews
Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Blue Bayou Restaurant, a table service restaurant in New Orleans Square at Disneyland.
Written by Robert Niles
Set waterside inside Disneyland's Pirates of the Caribbean, the Blue Bayou restaurant offers Cajun and Creole-influenced lunch and dinner entrees.
The dinner menu at the Blue Bayou includes steaks and seafood, while the lunch menu features Disney's Monte Cristo sandwich. You'll dine "outside" an antebellum Louisiana mansion, along the shore of the Blue Bayou, watching the Pirates of the Caribbean boats float by in the eternal twilight.
You'll need to make reservations in advance to eat at the Blue Bayou - call 714-781-DINE before your trip, and very nicely request a waterside table.
If you are craving a Monte Cristo sandwich and looking for a less expensive alternative (with less ambiance), try the Cafe Orleans across the way in Disneyland's New Orleans Square, which also serves the sandwich, and at a lower price.
The food is wonderful, but it's priced itself out of my range. - Mark Kausch
Amazing atmosphere, and great gumbo but the entrees are rather expensive for their quality. - Sarah Barnes
Maybe we hit it at the wrong time, but it felt dusty and faded. We had heard the food portions were enormous and when we asked our server if we could split one meal, he gave us a short and rude answer "yes lots of people do it". There was plenty of food for two - we had the chicken and asparagus with mashed potatoes. As for the quality of the food? Average. It is still theme park food no matter where it's presented. Just after our visit it was closed for refurb. It certainly needed it. We will dine there again. I want to experience it again in case our visit was simply poor timing. - Becky Wheeler
They could serve bad fish sticks and I'd still give it a 10. The setting is amazing. - Kurt Larson
My favorite restaurant at a Theme Park. Blue Bayou is in the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction. There's great food, excellent service,and amazing decor. It really feels like you outside. Blue Bayou isn't just a restaurant it's an experience. - nick .
I had a good time! A Disney Classic! I think lunch is better! While the prices here are a bit high, they do not skimp on the food. Be prepared to be stuffed! - Anthony Murphy
