Restaurant Reviews:

Since the only way a more informed decision can be made by future visitors is by a full description, we ask that you provide more than just a sentence or two on the restaurant. Bad example: "The food was great and the waiters very attentive. I'd eat there again." Good example: "I ordered the house specialty (filet mignon) and it was cooked perfectly, my partner ordered the chicken which was rather dry but the orange sauce was good. We had heavenly flan for dessert, and the wait staff was very attentive. Dinner for two including wine was $40-50."

This is my new favorite restaurant at the resort! Great food, great service, low prices, and the view is fantastic.

This was our first time at Cafe Orleans, we were still relatively full from breakfast at Steakhouse 55 that we didn't want anything too heavy. We didn't have priority seating but were seated outside along the rail within minutes.

I ordered the La Salade de Maison and french onion soup. My husband ordered a bowl of the gumbo and pomme frites. We stuck to water for drinks. The salad is so good, with mixed greens, tomatoes, goat cheese, and pecans with a raspberry vinaigrette. It was refreshing and so good. The french onion soup was flavorful without being salty. My husband said the gumbo was great and the pomme frites are still talked about in our house.

I really don't think we ever had less than half a glass of water, the service was just outstanding. During our meal the pirate band came out and played right in front of where we were sitting. That was a fun extra during dinner.

Our bill came to $30.13 with tax. We liked it so much that we went a second time that week!

The second time we ordered the exact same thing with the exception of beignets. The service was just as great, we didn't have priority seating and were seated inside within minutes. It was warm out so I wanted air conditioning while eating soup.

The food was once again great, and the beignets were so good, the dipping sauces made them better (in our opinion) than the ones at Ralph Brennan's.

This time our total came to $38.74.

We will be going back to Cafe Orleans every trip from now on.

For clarity, my ratings are based on restaurants within the Disneyland Resort only.

We booked a 1PM table at Cafe Orleans during the hectic 1st week of the year, and waited about 5 minutes or so to be seated (compared to 45-60 minutes for those that hadn't booked). The day was unseasonably warm, making for a pleasant day at an outdoor table. Service was cordial and attentive.

Not being ones for heavy lunches, we all had bowls of French onion soup, which gets top marks. Beyond that we split an order each of pomme frites and beignets. Sometimes I've had fries with a bit too much garlic (and I enjoy the smell of Gilroy) but these had a good amount without being overwhelming. I love beignets with only sugar, but the sauce and cream were both nice additions.

We found this to be a good way to catch a breath on a busy day for lunch without great expense. What we had would probably split better for 2 than 3, but none of us left hungry. I also think one should try to tip the server a bit on the generous side when eating light like this if possible; after all, a table ordering full meals will have a higher check. A return is likely.

I used to love the Blue Bayou restaurant for lunch, but since they have changed their menu and prices have increased, it is now out of the budget. My wife really likes the Monte Cristo sandwiches and wanted one on our trip. I read many good things about Cafe Orleans and decided to make a reservation for our first day at Disneyland for 5 adults and 2 children.

Our reservation time was for their first seating at 11:30. We arrived at about 11:15 and checked in. They were not ready to seat, so we waited outside. After a short wait we were the first group seated.

We ordered Pommes Frites to start off with, 2 Monte Cristo Sandwiches to split, Mardi Gras Chicken Sandwich, and mac and cheese for our daughters. Our drink orders came quickly followed by our Pommes Frites, which were gobbled down quickly.

Our waitress was very attentive to our needs and brought us refills when we needed. The only bad thing about the drinks is they do not have just plain lemonade, it is pomegranate, which my oldest daughter did not like. The lemonade was exchanged for a bottle of water without any problems.

The main courses came out and the Monte Cristos were quickly split. Before I knew it my daughters had finished their meals, and everyone enjoyed their sandwiches. For desert we ordered the gingerbread beignets, and these did not last long either.

This is now my new favorite restaurant for a relaxing meal. It is less expensive than the Blue Bayou, but more expensive than burger and fries.
