The World Showcase Pavilion inside Epcot is where you can experience food, architecture, drinks, and activities from around the world, so it’s no surprise that there are many delicious restaurants in Epcot. There is truly something for everyone in Epcot and it is the go-to park in Walt Disney World for food lovers. So the next time you find yourself visiting the Walt Disney World theme parks, head over to these delicious restaurants in Epcot.
Restaurant Marrakesh inside the Morocco Pavilion is one of my favorite restaurants in Epcot. Not only does this restaurant have a nice price point, it is also one of the few that does not necessarily require a reservation. The restaurant is beautiful and features hand painted tile from the Moroccan king’s artisans. During certain times of the day, Restaurant Marrakesh even has a belly dancer as entertainment. I like ordering the Marrakesh Feast or the Royal Feast because they both include samples of different appetizers, entrees, and desserts. Be sure to try their specialty drinks as well, like the Moroccan mint iced tea.
Treat yourself in France by dining at Monsieur Paul. This gem is hidden within France and unless you know it’s there, it is easy to walk right past the entrance. The entrance has no flashy signs and blends in with the décor of France. This is the first way this restaurant is a special experience; they make you feel like you are in on a well-kept secret. The décor inside the restaurant is modern and plush, making you feel right at home. I recommend doing the Prix Fixe menu in order to try the best of what Monsieur Paul has to offer.
If you are looking for something casual and delicious during your visit to Epcot, try Via Napoli, located in the Italy Pavilion. This restaurant has Neapolitan wood-fired pizzas and pastas sure to delight your senses. The décor is whimsical and features hand painted floor tiles and frescoes. You can watch the cast members make your pizza right in front of you, which is one of my favorite parts. If you are over the age of 21, consider a wine flight to pair with your wood-fired pizza.
Character dining isn’t just something found in the Magic Kingdom. The Norway Pavilion in Epcot has a princess character dining experience not to be missed. Since getting a reservation at Cinderella’s Royal Table can be quite the challenge, I recommend opting for Akershus instead. The restaurant is a buffet with Scandinavian options open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Here you can meet Mary Poppins, Jasmine, Ariel, Belle, Princess Aurora, Cinderella, Snow White, and/or Mulan.
In the United Kingdom Pavilion, you will find the Rose and Crown. The restaurant is reasonably priced and designed to look like an authentic pub. I love the British food offerings here, including fish and chips, cottage pie, scotch eggs, and mushy peas. Sometimes you can even catch live entertainment inside the Pub. This is also one of the locations where you can watch Epcot’s Illuminations show from the patio, so make your reservations in advance!
If you are looking for dinner and a show, try Teppan Edo in the Japan Pavilion. Teppan Edo is a Hibachi Grill with traditionally trained chefs. The seating is family-style so you may have to dine with another family, but don’t let this deter you from experiencing this restaurant. You can get steak, chicken, seafood, and vegetables cooked in front of you on the grill or tempura style. For dessert, finish up with some green tea ice cream or cheesecake.
Le Cellier, located in the Canada Pavillion, is arguably Epcot’s most popular restaurant. Therefore, it can be hard to score a reservation. If you want to eat here, be sure to book 6 months prior to your trip. The restaurant is designed to look like a Canadian wine cellar so the dining room is small and quaint. Le Cellier is a steakhouse featuring some of the most delicious and best-cooked steaks in all of Disney. The appetizers and desserts are satisfying as well. I recommend the Canadian cheese soup for starters and the maple crème brûlée for dessert.
These are 7 of my favorite restaurants in Disney World. In my opinion, you can’t go wrong if you dine at any of these establishments. Where do you like to eat when visiting Epcot? Give us your input in the comments section.
