Good food, typically priced. Most tables have a good view of the savannah which is the centre piece. Without doubt get the breads starter.

Our waiter, Pedro were very useful and friendly with us. We have followed his recommendations and we were really satisfied with it. Our dishes and the paired wine, a South-African shiraz were a unique culinaric experience. In addition we could enjoy the view of giraffes...More

We were lucky and got a window seat and giraffes were 20 yards away. Food was very good and fairly priced. It’s walkable from main lodge at animal kingdom and you can also see some animals from a couple of viewing areas at the hotel.

We went at night so I honestly don't know if you could see animals from the window. We were seated in the middle of the restaurant.

I don't know if Sanaa is open for breakfast. The refillable mugs are only usable in restaurants that are "counter service" style. Sanaa is table service. If you're staying in the DVC, I suspect you may have to go over to the... More
