Description: Citricos restaurant brings the cuisine of southern Europe to Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. Citricos chefs rotate dinner selections frequently for a focused menu of American dishes inspired by the cuisine of Provençe, Tuscany and the Spanish Riviera—such as steaks seared on an oak-filled grill, creative risotto, pastas, and seafood depending on the season.The main dining room is airy and decorated with hues of yellow and orange. Old-world furnishings, wrought-iron railings and mosaic-tile floors contribute to the warm Mediterranean décor. Located on the second floor of Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, windows near select tables in Citricos provide a phenomenal view of the courtyard. Other tables allow you to peer into the bustling show kitchen. Meet the Head Chef at Citricos Restaurant. The Chef's Domain at Citricos Restaurant: For an exclusive gourmet dining event that brings you even closer to the action on the culinary stage, reserve The Chef's Domain at Citricos. Diners at The Chef's Domain may order from the traditional menu or choose to have the chef create a menu for them in a private dining room that seats up to 12 Guests.

Reviewed May 12, 2012

Went here for my wifes birthday. What a magnificent meal. Staff was great, friendly & knew their menu. Both the manager & Chef De Cuisine stopped by out table to make sure everything was perfect. The food was awesome beyondrds. If you have one special night out at Disney & you want the best, this is the place. We never miss it & have never been disappointed. Believe me, it doesnt make any difference what you order, it will be supurb.

“Better than you might expect”
Reviewed May 11, 2012

The restaurant is on the second level of the Grand Floridian. Prices were about 20-30% more than you might pay in a "normal" locale, but this is Disney. If you accept the premise that everything at Disney is going to be at a premium and not get annoyed, then this restaurant is definitely worth considering. My wife and I both selected fish entrees and split a shrimp and garlic appetizer. The food was well prepared. The fish was fresh, sauces complemented rather than overwhelmed the food. We split a trio of gelati for dessert and we practically licked the dish it was so good. Surprisingly, considering the price of the meal, the wines were quite reasonable. They offer a fair selection of wines by the glass from $9 to $15 with most around $10. Expect to pay in the high $30's for an entree. The service was prompt and friendly. The room is attractive and comfortable.

“Best in Disney”
Reviewed May 1, 2012

In my opinion this is the best restaurant in WDW. The setting it more childfree and adult. The service is wonderful, and the food is amazing. I have to go each time I'm down. Anyone looking for a more adult, longer meal will be happy here.

“Genuinely interesting food”
Reviewed April 18, 2012

A super break from the generic steak/chicken/burger concept. My Swordfish was cooked to perfection and packed with great flavours.
