By far the most creative and interesting restaurant we encountered at Disney. I dined here with my husband and 9 year old twin boys, and at the end of our meal, I made reservations for our last night at Disney. I could not go home without experiencing this again!
It's at the Animal Kingdom Lodge, which is beautiful. Both nights, we arrived well before our reservation, so we could spend a little time by the savannah (which is just outside the lobby), to watch the giraffes and other animals graze. My boys loved it!
The African decor in the restaurant creates an exotic ambiance. The service was good, and the food was fantastic! We got entrees the first night, and shared appetizers the second night; the food was delicious, unique and memorable! One of my boys is an adventurous eater, and the other is more of a 'mac and cheese and chicken nuggets' guy. The kids menu provided options for both, and they each enjoyed their meals.
The desserts were fabulous, both on the adult menu and the chidrens' menu.
If you're vacationing at Disney but also want to eat well, then a reservation (or two!) at Jiko should definitely be on your schedule. It was fabulous!
