Our first meal upon our arrival was at the Kona Cafe. We were so hungry and boy did we have choices! Our group of 8 had salads, burgers, seafood and yummy gluten free meals. The service was fantastic and the servings were very big. WE will go back here for sure!

We ate at the Kona Cafe a couple of years ago and weren't impressed with food or service. This year we decided to give it another try. The food was tasty and nicely presented and the service was great.

Our family eats gluten free. We talked to the allergy chef as is customary at the Disney restaurants and ordered. I got the Chicken Pan Asian Noodles. My husband ordered a cheeseburger and fries. My children had grilled chicken kids meal to split. It was all good but the Noodles were to die for. This is a must try dish.... More

This was our second visit (first in 2013) to this restaurant and it quickly became our favorite place while staying at WDW. This trip was especially enjoyable as my husband said the coffee rubbed pork chop was the best ever. My daughter and I loved the Pan Asian Noodles with shrimp. Service was good and the special bread and butter... More

This is one of our favorite spots for a nice dinner in disney. We love the atmosphere of the Polynesian and although the restaurant is small and can be crowded, this is not a big deal if you have reservations. My biggest problem at this restaurant is deciding what to eat as it is difficult to choose because the pork... More

My boyfriend and I ate here over MLK weekend. I've eaten here a few times before and I honestly think their menu and service has improve greatly! We showed up 15 minutes early for our reservation and were sat almost immediately. Drinks were a little delayed, but the waitress kept apologizing (the bar was backed up, as the playoffs were...

True to form, the food at Kona Cafe was fantastic. This was the first time we ate there for breakfast and we felt that, overall, our expectations were slightly exceeded. My wife and I shared a pot of coffee (French press) which was very nice. While the name was different, I recognized the Liliko'i Juice blend as the same they... More

Recently stopped in for an afternoon bite to eat while at Disney. None of the employees, Hostess, Waitresses acknowledged we were standing there. Finally we were seated and the same problem with service. Seemed strange when restaurant was mostly empty.....Now I know why. Food was so so and not up to expectation and normal Disney standards. Very disappointing after having... More

This is a quaint cafe, with good service but over priced food. Nothing particular stands out about it as memorable. I had one of their vegetarian lunch items and it was just ok. I wouldn't go back to this location. Not that there was anything wrong with it per se, but there is so much better in the area to... More
