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."

My husband and I are big fans of Disney's take on tiki culture, so we were very excited to try Tangaroa Terrace the weekend it opened. Much has been made of the restaurant's modern take on tiki décor, so we were expecting more Enchanted Tiki Room-style flourishes. Instead we found a well-lit but somewhat bland space with dark wood accents that were only vaguely Hawaiian-feeling. If you squint, you could be at almost any fast-casual chain restaurant. Still, there are a few items of interest, mainly the light fixtures. The high ceilings and abundance of natural light help compensate for the anonymous interior design too.

What really got us excited about Tangaroa Terrace was the menu, which was billed on the Disney Parks Blog as a fresh, Polynesian-accented take on classic counter-service fare. We ordered the Angus 1/3 lb. Hawaiian Cheeseburger and the Island Fish & Chips.

The menu describes the Angus 1/3 lb. Hawaiian Cheeseburger as a "ground angus burger with teriyaki sauce, fresh grilled pineapple, Havarti cheese, bacon, lettuce and tomato on a multigrain bun with choice of sweet potato fries or green papaya slaw." The trouble is, the touch-screen ordering system doesn't let you select how you want the burger cooked, so ours came out roughly the consistency of shoe leather. The thin patty had a veneer of plasticky cheese and a hint of teriyaki glaze, but the burger was otherwise dryit's up to you to craft some kind of sauce from the ketchup, mustard and mayo offered at the condiment bar. A few shriveled pieces of pineapple, tough standard-issue Disney bacon, a tomato slice and a pale yellow fringe of lettuce rounded out the accompaniments.

Described as "panko-crusted mahi mahi and sweet potato fries served with lime tartar sauce," the Island Fish and Chips were even worse than the burger. The fish was dry and flavorless, and the runny "lime tartar sauce" seemed to be ranch dressing mixed with horseradish. The best thing you could say about the dish was that the fish arrived hot, something we almost never find at Disney restaurants. On the other hand, the sweet potato fries with both meals were cold and soggy.

Now Tangaroa Terrace had only been open a few days when we went, so maybe they were still working the kinks out. But so far the low-quality ingredients and workman-like preparation are pretty much on par with the rest of Disneyland's counter-service dining - in other words, not great. It's just a shame that all the effort put into designing the building and packing the menu full of exotic descriptions didn't extend to crafting truly interesting, well-prepared food to match.
