“Good food not great portion size for the money”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

This restaurant offers two sites for seating, middle of the action outside by the round bar or inside the restaurant upstairs. They also have 2 menus, 1 is assigned to each seating site. The food was great but a bit over priced for the portions in my opinion. I had the scallops and they were very small and only 3. I paid about the same price in VEGAS at the WYNNE's Switch steak house for bigger scallops and 1 more. Nice atmosphere but it is a little loud and not easy to hear your party.

“Great location, interesting menu”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

Took a break from Disneyland's in-park food options to enjoy a nice dinner outdoors at the Uva Bar. Despite all the walking traffic nearby, the place feels peaceful. Service was excellent. We had Tuna Tartare Tacos with Avocado (really delicious), Arugula-Manchego salad, and Fish & Chips. Highly recommend!

“Uva bar a great stop if you are in Downtown Disney”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

We recently visited Disneyland and were on a mid-day break and stopped at the Uva Bar. The bar is an outdoor bar in Downtown Disney located literally in the middle of the walkway.

We ordered the Sea Salt garlic fries, guacamole, and corn arepas (corn cake topped with pulled pork). All the food was excellent, but the the corn arepas particularly so.

Prices are reasonable (by Disneyland standards). Most of the menu items are under $16. Even though that may sound expensive; you are getting freshly prepared, good food.

“Primo Disney Dining”
Reviewed March 22, 2013 via mobile

Lovely outdoor balcony dining overlooking Downtown Disney. Service is top notch and the food is excellent. All of the dining areas seem surprisingly peaceful and quiet considering the location and abundant hard surfaces. Menu offers something for everyone including little people, a fabulous wine list, comfortable outdoor seating, nice specialty Cocktails, and well executed food.

What I loved-HOT plates, attentive service (most everyone was cheery and friendly and seemed to take pride in their job), excellent food including perfectly cooked scallops, fine dining experience while slobbily dressed and people watching at UVA.

What I didn't love-TV in the Bar (one of my bigger pet peeves at a nice resty) and the occasional waft of cigarette smoke drifting up from below.

Overall an excellent restaurant that would please a picky foodie AND someone with simpler tastes. Indoor dining is pleasant too-but always enjoy a perfect evening on the patio. Well worth the money.

“one of the options in Downtown Disney”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

We always go to the Uva Bar when we go to Disneyland, but this time we stopped on our way to San Diego (and on our return trip) just to have lunch at the Uva Bar and shop at World of Disney. The food is fresh, clean and delicious. The corn arepas, and the guacamole appetizers are very good. The mediterranean trio is so-so. The hanger steak is very very good, and so is the burger. In fact we've never seen anything go by that didn't look good.
We definitely recommend the Uva Bar. And the inside part of the restaurant (Catal) serves an excellent paella.
