Unique friendly authentic without the pretense. Everything you taste is an explosion of flavor in your mouth. Not spicy just full or flavors that are left of center. You will enjoy every bite and then some! Couple that with views of the giraffe and it’s...More

I love this restaurant! The setting is amazing, the view is magical and the food is unique and delicious.. BUT, when did Disney give up? At breakfast, there are no waiters, no full service option - just a person behind the bar that you have...More
