Having dined at the Flying Fish our first night, we thought we'd try Spoodles for the next night, assuming it was going to be equivalent.
The comparison was not even close. While Flying Fish is very busy restaurant, it provides a much more enjoyable experience, as compared to Spoodles which has all the atmosphere of a high school cafeteria, specifically the noise. Its just one giant barn like room with a ceiling that seems designed to amplify and direct back down all sound. I kid you not that a normal level of conversation at a two person table was impossible.
Additionally, our table, really should not have been a table. It was a table for two where my wifes chair was in the traffic pattern of all food coming out of the, I suppose you call it kitchen, and my chair was sticking out into the exit from the next booth over. It was as if we were in one of those old movies where they throw stick you at a table back by the swinging doors to the kitchen in the club when you insult the head waiter.
We were lured there initially by the marquee which promised Mediterranean cuisine, with "Tapas" in really large letters outside. Being fans of Tapas, we were quite disappointed to see nothing of the sort on the menu. (I should note that the menu was not displayed outside as it is at most of the Disney restaurants.) The food was mostly just standard fare, steak, chops, pasta, with some Mediterranean names, and couple dashes of spice, but not too much to risk moving beyond bland. Like most large eateries, the dishes will neither offend, nor inspire.
Very expensive, as are all things Disney. But I imagine if you just get the pizza, you will eat as well and save.
