“An Amazing Underwater Adventure”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

Took my wife here while on our honeymoon. This restaurant is in a unique class of its own because it is literally under water, which adds a really neat element to its atmosphere. A word ahead of time, if you are wanting to dine here, make reservations well in advance because it gets packed. Even though I made the reservations at least 3 months in advance, we were seated after about a 15-20 minute wait. The dining room itself is on the smaller side of dining rooms seen around Disney, but it packs an amazing view of tons of different types of sea life which can be identified from the back of your menu (great time waster while waiting for food). Our waitress was polite and prompt with getting our food to us. A great place to enjoy a meal!

“Fantastic dining experience”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

We booked this last minute and got a fantastic table for the family right in front of one if the aquarium windows. We had an amazing view of the fish, turtles and sharks. My five year old was amazed. Food was brilliant, fantastic steak and chicken. Cocktails were also amazing with a special buzz lightyear one for children. This is a must do venue in Epcot.

“Good food, relaxing atmosphere”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

This was one of our best dining experiences at Disney, second only to Teppan 's. my daughter had a chicken dish which they willingly made kid friendly. I had a fish dish and hubby had steak. We were all pleased with our meals and desserts. The atmosphere is lovely, there are large aquariums in the dining rooms.

“Expensive resturant average food”
Reviewed May 14, 2013 via mobile

We were at Epcot in Disney World and ate lunch there it was a wonderful resturant in the theme and service but the food was expensive and the portions small the food was good but not great as the price should have dictated if you have never been it might be something to do but be ready to deal out the money

“Great aquariums and nice staff”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

We had made reservations for dinner here from home when we booked our Candlelight Processional with Andy Garcia but I booked it for the wrong night but they made room for us anyway which was very nice. Only the waiter didn't seem very happy about it but oh well, that's his problem I guess. The food was not bad and it was not great. It was just there. I was ready to go. I'd probably eat at least one more time.
