Featuring Crepes, Salads and the famous Monte Cristo Sandwiches
I'm sad to say that I found the Monte Cristos just too much. I can deal with a lot of gut busting good food on vacation, but I just felt horrible after eating that. However, the rest of the experience was fantastic. The pomme frites were great, and the atmosphere on the patio made the experience.
We had dinner reservations for about 5:00 PM, and were seated promptly with a great table near the railing on the Pirates of the Caribbean side of the restaurant. From our vantage point we had a great view of Tom Sawyer’s Island and all the people making their way through this classic park.
Good service and ambiance. However, I must admit that I'm in the minority here and confess that I was not a fan of the famous Monte Cristo sandwiches. I probably should have read the menu in more detail, but I basing my ordering decision off the myriad positive reviews of the Monte Cristo I read. In bite-size pieces, they might make a tasty appetizer, but putting a few slices of meat and cheese inside what is essentially a deep-fried donut is not what I call an ideal lunch. Thankfully, there were some grapes that came with the meal to offset the grease. I like Monte Cristos much better when it's more similar to a sandwich made out of French toast, which was more of what I was expecting. I would probably go back to Cafe Orleans, especially to try to get a seat outside overlooking Frontierland, but I would not order the Monte Cristo again.
The Monte Cristos are amazing and easily enough for 2people. The Gumbo and pomme frites were also delicious. This has the same MENU and KITCHEN as blue bayou, at half the price. 10/10
I'm lovin' this place. The seafood crepes are dee-licious.
One of the best sit-down experiences I have had in a theme park. The monte cristo is very tasty and I never miss an opportunity for beignets.
