Coral Reef Restaurant

Coral Reef Restaurant is one of the more unique places to eat at Walt Disney World. Located inside of the Living Seas Pavilion, diners have views into the giant tanks full of real fish. For some, there may be a bit of a cognitive disconnect in serving a seafood-dominated menu while watching fish swim around you.

Reviewer: rbaadmin Elwood, IL     May 26, 2008
I was a chaperone for twenty high school seniors, and we decided to try some unique restaurants that we thought they would enjoy. Well, we were right on this one. They set us at three different large tables down in front of the aquarium windows for a great dinner and a "show" with the fish and the human divers. From experience, the steak was incredible with a great seasoned sauce spread over it. You have to try the chocolate cake for dessert! We used the meal plan and definately got our money's worth, with my meal alone totalling about $50.00. The service was great even with a huge group!! I would definately return in the future!

Very nice dinner with a wonderful atmostphere. We had the new york strip steaks and king crab legs. The crab legs were ok, nothing thrilling.....but the steaks were fantastic. The aquariam was nice to see. Overall a great experience for our family of 6 including a picky eater that only likes steak and potatoes! Would go there again for sure.

By far the best sit down experience of our six day visit to the world. It has been several years since we dined here and it only became better. All three courses were well presented and tasted so good. Original, which is not always the case anymore. The CM were all friendly from the time we walked in until they held the door for us on the way out. What we did notice was an involved manager. Out and about the whole time we were there, helping out and keeping a watchful eye on everything. I believe this made all the difference in the world. The atmosphere is very special here and has a warm and fuzzy feel for all ages. The kids meals were served on Mickey Head plates. Kids snacks and desserts were arranged to form hidden Mickey's. Small details made it a great experience. I'd give more planets if they were available.
