We've eaten here several times- more for the ambiance than anything. They change their menu about twice a year. Of course, it's expensive- it's DisneyWorld. But their menu this time was so limited and narrow my wife and I couldn't find a decent entree to eat so we ended up having simple Caesar Salads ($10). Others in our party opted... More

The setting is beautiful, but the food is just average and very overpriced for the quality. That's typical of most theme park dining, but in my opinion this is definitely not worth the money. We went because it was a long held desire of mine to eat there, and while the food wasn't bad, it was certainly nothing spectacular or... More

almost 6 million gallons of seawater full of fish as interested in the diners and we were interested in them was the background for an excellent meal and the normal terrific disney service and attitude.

You sit next to a huge fish tank, that is just awesome. seeing huge turtles and sharks swim past is amazing. However, the food is not the best. it is ok but nothing outstanding and the children's choice isn't great.

This was the adults favorite restaurant during our 8 day Disney trip. Even the kids loved it here. We had an amazing table with views close to the aquarium tank. The raspberry pina colada was amazing. I had the salmon and it was really good. My husband had the steak and it was cooked to perfection . Can't wait to... More

We came here without any reservation and was told it would be a 45 minute wait. We decided to stay and cool off after the morning heat and walking. The only problem we had was our fast pass for Soarin was expiring and we asked them if we can used our fastpass first and come back and still can get... More

Our family had lunch here one day during our vacation and the food was very good. Depending on how picky your children are, you're not going to find your typical kids menu fair at this place so, be mindful of that. Otherwise, it was a nice dining experience and the aquarium is beautiful and relaxing to watch.

The size of the fish portion is decent. The soup is fantastic. The fish tank views are great, sharks, divers you name it swimming past while you dine. Our server was pleasant and handled our allergy request by having the chef stop over and explain what went in each menu item. Plan to spend 2 hours with apps, main course... More

Coral Reef goes down on my list of all around bad dining experiences. From the moment we walked in the front door to the moment we settled our bill. The restaurant is tucked away in a hard to find corner of Epcot and the decor is dated, in my opinion. The focal point is the gorgeous aquarium which seems to... More

The Coral Reef restaurant is appropriately housed inside the Living Seas Pavilion in Epcot's future world. There are three tiers of seating which allows everyone to get great views of the aquarium. Sand and bubble inspired wall mosaics surround three 8 inch thick acrylic glass windows. The sound of jazzy music fills the air. As you dine on stainless steel... More
