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.

Went for an early reservation due to having a toddler in the party. Restaurant was not overly busy but did have a fair few dining plan guests (which is only to be expected in a Disney restaurant). Service was excellent, waiter was very attentive. The food was excellent, second fillet of beef of the holiday (first at calafornia grill) and this was much better. Would definitely recommend.

Every time I go here it is fantastic. The food is wonderful, service is impeccable and everyone is so friendly. It is not cheap but it is well worth it.

In all the frequent trips to Disney somehow we never made it here for dinner. From start to finish it was superb. Lovely atmosphere,decor, and a magnificent waiter, Jared! We have not been able to stop talking about the quality, taste and presentation of the food. We have eaten at many of the best Disney restaurants but this is absolutely our new favorite. Already have a reservation for our next visit.

We ate here as a family to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary. We were not disappointed with the food. We arrived early to have a drink at the bar. Wine and larger was ordered but for me there wasn't a cocktail I liked. The batman asked what I liked which was a Strawberry shortcake. No problems he said and made me one up. I was very pleased and it tasted lovely. We were seated soon after and myself and my husband were given a menu which said happy anniversary and our names. We were then given a complimentary glass of fizz each. To eat my husband,mum and dad had the empadas and the fillet of beef and I had prawns and the veal osubuko. All the meals were fantastic. My son had soup and chicken which he enjoyed too. Deserts were to die for and we all left full and having had a good evening. I had a liquor coffee which rounded the meal off nicely. Lovely evening, expensive but worth it. Our waiter could have been better but that was just him and didn't spoil our evening, we just didn't tip him as much. We have eaten at California Grill several times and the food here was just as good, some might say even better.

My wife and I saved this restaurant for the last night of our honeymoon and it didn’t disappoint. We arrived an hour before our reservation to enjoy the grounds and the grand central atrium where a live band was playing. The food was excellent - I had the veal chop and my wife a very nice chicken breast. If you've a sweet tooth the chocolate torte with chocolate cage (many have uploaded pictures of this) was delicious.

The night was perfectly topped off when we caught the passenger boat from the resort across the lake just after sunset. The castle at magic kingdom was glowing in the distance as we approached. It was a really romantic end to the evening. Little ‘extras’ like this made our time in Disney so special. I hope you enjoy it too!
