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.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. The cheese appetizer and charcuterie was wonderful. Of all our meals, the braised veal shank and oak-grilled fillet of beef were the best- excellent! For dessert, the warn chocolate-banana torte was wonderful. Such a great dining experience! And our waiter, Malak, was such a professional, though friendly, server. We dined here with our two daughters (age 12 and 17). The whole family felt well attended and the kids were especially made to feel special. This was one of the best meals we have ever had! We highly recommend this restaurant!

“Spectacular Food, Fantastic Service - Gluten Free Friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

My hubby and I drove to the Polynesian Resort on the Disney property, met the rest of our family in the lobby of this beautiful venue and then took the monorail to the Grand Floridian Resorts (short ride). Very cool!

The monorail brought us to the front door of the Grand Floridian Resort and we walked directly into the restaurant. Shown in the picture is the beautiful chandelier in the center of the resort. Also shown is the "charcuterie" appetizer.

This is a great restaurant - very family friendly and the wait staff and chef were very helpful in accommodating my gluten-free needs. Super nice.

We were here for graduation and multiple birthday celebrations. Could not have been more enjoyable. I highly recommend this gorgeous restaurant!

“Gorgeous place to eat- and delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

You can't go wrong with Citricos. Go here during the sunset and make sure your order dessert. If you love fine dining and you are trying to choose a special place to eat in disney- this fits the bill nicely.

“A Cherished Visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

Along with long time friends and my wife, we visited Citricos this evening for what proved to be a very, very good experience. First of all, the facility itself...the Grand Floridian transports you to another era, a more gentler era. Once seated at our table, Nancy, our server came over and introduced herself to us and got us our drinks and then our bread. She explained the specials, made recommendations, and charmed us with her warmth. Three of us ordered Grouper and one ordered the Osso Bucca (Veal Shank). As it turned out, the fettucini that the grouper sat upon was not quite hot enough for two of us. Nancy immediately brought it back and it no time at all, she returned with the temperature just right. After eating our very enjoyable meals, Nancy brought over the desert menu and informed us that the chef was treating us to the deserts. In addition, none of us were charged for the coffee that all four of us drank. The head chef came over to us and personally apologized....a very nice touch! Instead of feeling that we were cheated somehow for this small mishap, we walked out very satisfied that the minor problem was taken care of seamlessly and sensibly. Very well done.
