There are so many great places to eat at Epcot, but often times Epcot’s Coral Reef Restaurant gets overlooked.
Perhaps it is because it is tucked away behind The Seas with Nemo and Friends and no one realizes it is there. Or, it could be because most people go over to the World Showcase to have their big meal of the day.
No matter what the reason, if you haven’t tried Coral Reef Restaurant in Epcot, you are really missing out on a great dining experience.
When you walk into Epcot’s Coral Reef, the first thing you will notice is that one entire set of walls is a built in aquarium.
This aquarium is part of The Seas with Nemo, the largest inland saltwater environment ever built.
If you get the opportunity, request a table next to the aquarium. You will get a close up view of the sea life (there are nearly 100 different types of fish) and might even get to see a scuba-diving Mickey!
While the dining experience is phenomenal, the food is also a nice change from typical theme park fare.
There are not many places on Disney property where you can find Charbroiled Octopus, Lobster and Seared Mahi Mahi.
What you should try for sure is the Shrimp & Grits! Talk about delicious!
Even the kids menu has great options like steak and fish of the day!
But probably the best part is dessert.
The array of beautifully designed deserts is amazing. You will find Coral Reef Restaurant Dessert Menu filled with items like Turtle cheesecake with caramel sauce, Key Lime Tart, and Warm Vanilla custard-filled strudel.
Coral Reef in Epcot is a Table Service Restaurant and is available to those using the Disney Dining Plan. It is one table service credit.
