11. Electric Umbrella

Electric Umbrella is a colorful restaurant near Innoventions with both indoor and outdoor seating and traditional favorites like burgers, chicken, salads, flatbreads, and vegetarian options. One thing I really like about this place is that the drink station is self-serve, so refills are free. Here’s a tip: head upstairs to get away from the crowds of the downstairs and outdoor areas.

I should note that the view here is beautiful; it looks out over the World Showcase Lagoon.

6 .Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria

The pizza at Via Napoli is as close to Italy’s as you can possibly get, and to insure that, Disney ships in water from Pennsylvania where the acidity levels are similar to those in Italy. The waitstaff is friendly, and voters commented on how good-looking they are as well!

Via Napoli bakes my favorite pizza!

There are close margins here, but I’m still surprised that Via Napoli is at number six. 1148 people voted and gave Via Napoli over a 90% positive rating.

It’s surprising that Tutto Italia ranked so much lower than the neighboring Tutto Gusto Wine Cellar, but I guess there’s only a small margin for error. 88% of 345 gave this restaurant a thumbs up.

10. Akershus Royal Banquet Hall

Akershus is a character dining experience with all your favorite Disney Princesses, which may include Snow White, Cinderella, Belle, Princess Aurora (Sleeping Beauty), and Ariel.

Meet your favorite princesses at Akershus.

Akershus received 1133 votes but only got an 87% positive rating.

I have to think that this is because of the menu options and not the Princesses. While breakfast includes some familiar items like scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, and cinnamon rolls, lunch and dinner introduce some authentic Norwegian dishes the likes of which I’d love to be able to just pronounce.

11. Le Cellier Steakhouse

Le Cellier Steakhouse in Canada is one of the top places to get steak in Disney World. This fine dining restaurant is family friendly, but it definitely has sophisticated dishes that might be more appropriate for an adults-only dinner. It’s also quite pricey with the least expensive steak on the menu being $50.

Steak anyone?

Steak anyone?

I’m sure that the cost played into 615 people ranking it only 87% positively because the atmosphere is wonderful; diners enjoy a candlelit dinner beneath sweeping stone arches. It really is a beautiful sight.

12. La Hacienda de San Angel

La Hacienda de San Angel is a themed dining restaurant in Mexico serving up your favorite Mexican dishes on house-made tortillas, fresh salsas, and of course margaritas. This is some of the most authentic Mexican food you’ll find in the area. Once again, La Hacienda ranked lower than La Cantina, which is in the same building and serves much of the same food.

La Hacienda earned 639 votes and only an 87% rating.

La Hacienda de San Angel is said to have the most authentic Mexican food Disney World.

13. Spice Road Table

Spice Road Table used to be a quick-service restaurant, but now they serve tapas and small plates. Many people note how attentive the service is here.

It’s also a great place to watch IllumiNations. Because of Moroccan religious beliefs, Morocco is one of the only countries that remains unlit during the fireworks. This means the light pollution in the area will be less than other country pavilions, so you can enjoy an unobstructed view.

Spice Road Table got 251 votes and just under 87% of them being good.

14. Monsieur Paul

Monsieur Paul is another French table-service restaurant. It used to be known as Bistro de Paris but was recently refurbished to be a gourmet French restaurant. It’s located upstairs from Les Chefs de France and serves authentic fare like pan-seared cod and roasted duck breast.

Monsieur Paul serves French Canadian fare.

Monsieur Paul serves French Canadian fare.

Because this is a fine dining restaurant, there is a dress code; men and women may wear slacks or jeans with nice shirts, and women can wear dresses or skirts, but they do not allow tank tops, hats, swimwear, or cutoffs.

102 people gave Monsieur Paul an 86% rating.

15. Restaurant Marrakesh

Restaurant Marrakesh is a Moroccan establishment serving fare like lamb, shish kebab, and couscous. One really fun thing about Restaurant Marrakesh is the entertainment! Belly dancers entertain diners with movement and live percussion.

Restaurant Marrakesh is traditional mediterranean-inspired cuisine.

Restaurant Marrakesh received 317 votes for just under an 86% rating.

16. San Angel Inn Restaurante

San Angel Inn may not have received an excellent rating (548 diners for 84% positive), but the atmosphere here makes up for any food mishaps that may happen.

San Angel Inn is set in perpetual twilight.

San Angel Inn is inside the Mayan pyramid in Mexico. It’s modeled after a 17th century hacienda at the base of Mayan ruins. You’ll overlook a village marketplace, and when you’re done, you can walk over to the Gran Fiesta tour Starring the Three Caballeros.

17. Coral Reef Restaurant

Coral Reef is located to the right of The Seas building in Future World. With just an 81% rating from 857 people, this might not be a completely accurate representation of the quality of the food here. It’s almost always packed, and the view can’t be beat. When the restaurant opened, it held on of the largest aquariums in the world, but it was beat out by the Georgia Aquarium. Nevertheless, you can dine in front of a wall of water as the fish swim by. You might even see some scuba divers!

The Seas holds the second largest aquarium in the world.

18. Nine Dragons

Nine Dragons in China is last on the list, but it’s much improved from last year when it got just a 69% rating. Still, a 80% ranking from 235 is less than impressive and certainly not enough motivation to eat here. Unfortunately, it’s very stereotypical Chinese food with little imagination.

Nine Dragons is rated the worst restaurant in Epcot.

It is, however, pretty inside. With wood carvings, traditional Chinese lanterns, and glass artwork, it might be worth stepping inside to see even if you decide to eat somewhere else.

Bars

Epcot prides itself on the multi-cultural experiences including the unofficial activity of Drinking Around the World. All of the bars in Epcot ranked at or above 93%!

3. La Cava del Tequila

La Cava del Tequila keeps over 200 varieties of tequila plus top-shelf cocktails, and Mexican beer and wine. They also serve light snacks like chips with guac and queso. With 414 surveys, it’s easy to see that this is a popular place. It earned a 94.9% rating.

The best part about this bar is that the bar tenders can help you choose and taste tequila, which is really helpful if you’re new to the drink!

4. Rose & Crown Pub

Rose & Crown Pub is adjacent to the Rose & Crown Dining Room. They serve British pints along with some “Pub Grub”, which is the same food you’ll get at the Dining Room, but you don’t have to have an ADR! 392 people gave this spot a 93.9% rating.

Snacks

Another fun Epcot activity is eating around the world. If that’s your goal, you might want to stick with snacks so you don’t fill up too fast.

1. Karamell Kuche

Karamell Kuche (Caramel Kitchen) in Germany tastes just as good as it smells. Inside, there are decadent caramel creations like apples, baked goods, and squares. This is one of my favorite places to get sweets in Epcot, and with 648 people giving it a 97.1% rating, it’s obvious that it’s other people’s favorite too.

Club Cool received an astonishing 1279 surveys and a 94.4% rating. It could be that the samples are completely free!

4. Crepes des Chefs de France

Chefs de France also has a crepes stand. It is located on the promenade. They serve plain, sugar, chocolate, or strawberry preserve crepes topped with soft serve ice cream plus espresso and cappuccino. Again, you can’t go wrong with ice cream! Over 340 people ranked this a 90%.
