Our visits (2) this trip were wonderful. Our second visit did require help from management because of an anniversary. It went great. We highly recomend this great place, from Keith the manager to Andrew, Dave, and Curly they are all great. We look forward to February 2010.

This is one of the best restaurants at Disney World! Not as chic as the California Grill, which can have a cocktail attire feel to it. It is located right on the small boardwalk area by the Boardwalk Hotel (easy walking from the Swan/Dolphin). A boat travels from Epcot right to the dock by the restaurant, so it's a wonderful choice for dinner. Just take the boat that leaves from the Epcot International Gateway between England and France. This is a "fancy" restaurant, so you would feel uncomfortable in tank tops and shorts. Children are welcome, and we took ours. It is a hoppin' kind of place, so the kids won't feel like they have to sit with their hands folded. Our waiter (Jon) was fabulous!!! He made us feel so welcome, and the service was the best we ever had! That is such a hard combination: friendly, yet impeccable. The decor was very nice. Pillars around the room helped to break up the large open space and buffer noise. We had a party of 9, so we sampled almost everything on the menu. The potato-wrapped snapper was delicious, the crusted N.Y. strip steak was superb (wish I'd gotten it!), and all the other food we tried was perfectly prepared. I found that the Tuna Tartare was not to my taste, but this was more my own taste than any fault in preparation. We had soup to nuts (Banana Napoleon was tasty), and spent a bundle. But we all agreed it had been worth it. We would go back in a minute. One small thing was that we did wait 45 minutes after our priority seating time, but they had several large parties ahead of us, and they were obviously hustling and doing their best.

Reviewer: akdisney Laguna Beach Cal.     December 26, 2002
I was walk around boardwalk and did a walk up to the flying fish cafe for dinner(5:00 pm or 5:30 pm). It was the first seat for dinner. if you a single or couple and doing a walk up there is alway seat at the bar or by the kitchen. for dinner I order the Tuna tartare with Soy-Cilantro vinaigrette wasabi creme Fraiche and sesame crackers ($12.00). for Entrees I pick for the chef's thunder a Oak fired dayboat scallops with Lemon- tarragon risotto, rapini and ruby grapfruit emulsion ($29.00) and had the chef's pick of wine for the scallps a Ironhorse vineyards chardonnay green valley 99 ($11.50 a glass)
the tuna tartare was best I have eatting. the scallops you only get four or five and no taste the emulsion did not help much. I have to ask for more of the sauce. After that I till was hungey so I order the dessert. First was the Warm valrhona chocolate suffle' cake with Pistachio ice cream on a vanilla tuile ($8.00)
It was so good and I found out why people like the pistachio ice cream. I may found a new flavors of ice cream. Well I did not stop there the waitress toll me about the winning contest of desserts, the Banana napoleon with Crispy Phyllo dough, vanilla cre'me brulee and warm caramel sauce ($8.00)
Now I know it was a winning dessert. you can you can die for.
the service was great and hard working. the atmosphere is like you step of the broadwalk and in to a sea side place and have dinner. there is a a lot of room you not to close togetter.
the head chefs is new from calf. and it was he four night.
know for the dessert chef the planets rateing be lower.
