Any restaurant that makes you pay before you get your food then sends you out by the back door once you have finished should probably be avoided. We came in with a family group of 15, including several children aged 2 - 6 and were directed up the stairs by the greeter downstairs. After queuing for about 20 minutes, the guy on the till said we needed a reservation for such a large group. After being told in no uncertain terms that this was information that should have been given to us when we walked in the door, he said he would find something for us "if we calmed down", with no apology or seemingly any recognition that perhaps the staff were at fault here. After paying for our dinner we were shown upstairs to a near-empty restaurant!

The food itself was ok, but the best stuff ran out quickly and took ages to be replenished. I dislike this general Disney technique of providing a fast-food experience but charging "proper" restaurant prices, but most of the other outlets at least do it a lot better.

After finishing our meal we got up to leave, and were ushered towards a flight of stairs at the back leading to what was basically a fire door that brought you out up the street from where you went in. The management will no doubt say that this is to avoid congestion in the entranceway, but I suspect they are also worried about disgruntled diners telling those queuing on the stairs that it's not worth the wait.

This was the place that spoilt our last night. They took our money before we had eaten alarm bells should of rang !! Over priced stale Buffett food nothing for kids no music felt like a school canteen ! Just a security guy with a walkie talkie bleeping every few mins and him swinging a huge bunch of keys! When I complained they tried to put some music on , I said a lil to late we were in and out in 30 mins the food was sooo stale I told them I have a restaurant I know how long it takes food to look that bad!! Disgusting!!!!

Good food but a bit confusing. We really didn't know what we where supposed to do at this place. The food when we figured it out was an all inclusive tex mex buffet and the pudding where delicious! Unlike the rest of the park the staff didn't really speak much English and with us speaking not much French is was a bit awkward. We figured it out though and it was included in the half board so good really

Fab choice of food. Ask for a carafe of water with meals, as make drinks last longer. Book in advance, you do still need to queue up at the buffet but it cuts out the first queue at the stairs.

Me and my group arrived in Disneyland Paris and had a walk around the place to familiarise ourselves with where things were etc.

We were on the half-board option where you can opt to use your food vouchers for either lunch or tea (3 courses and a drink), so we decided just to get a light bite to eat at lunch and decided to visit Billy Bob's for our tea (we booked a table at our hotel information desk earlier in the day).

When we arrived at Billy Bobs, the atmosphere was great - there were people getting taught how to line dance etc. on the lower ground, but as we'd chosen the buffet type of meal, we were seated upstairs - we went upstairs and were seated very quickly, we were asked if we'd been before and when we said no our server walked us around the many counters and explained to us how it all worked and we were told as soon as we were ready we could go and help ourselves.

So, we went and joined the line and walked around all of the stands and counters and there was an extremely large choice to choose from and there was something for pretty much everyone - the fajita chicken and BBQ chicken were particularly nice - however there were fish dishes, beef dishes, pork dishes, many chicken dishes and also quite a good variety of vegetarian options, there was a huge salad bar with everything you could think of and then around the corner was the dessert counter which was also jam packed full of so much choice!

Overall, I would definitely recommend going here if you are on the half board meal plan as the food is really, really nice and you can have as much as you want which is definitely a plus and the service is also very good.
