Perhaps I expressed myself badly. Of course, one doesn't have to be a foodie to enjoy a meal at V&A's. However, I think the careful attention to detail and high cuisine will probably appeal more to the "foodie" type than to someone who just wants a good steak with loaded baked potato and salad.
I certainly didn't mean to suggest that anyone else isn't good enough to eat there, that's for sure.
No you didn't express yourself badly at all...*Shrug* LOL Everyone has an opinion and suggestion one way or the other . I guess i was a little to..."to the point"... lol, but you are right, V&A does pay EXTREMELY close attention to detail and i'm sure that it can sometimes feel stuffy rather then sweet (probably not casual you are right) & romantic. There are so many ways to enjoy great food in Disney, I know I love EPCOT like I said, but there is also fun, romantic and casual places at MK, Other Resorts and don't forget Downtown Disney. Downtown is a completely different style of restaurant however, like Wolfgangs, to Rainforest to Fulton's (Now if they would only bring back the Explorer's Club Id be set ) There are many different places to eat both fun & Romantic......basically look into a list of restaurants that suit the food type you are looking for (IE: Asian, American, Moroccan, English etc) and then find the style of dining you are looking for.....then maybe take it a step up from what you would normally choose for something special. If you like American then maybe head out to SciFi for dinner. Its like being at a drive in movie where you would share that old bench seat like 2 teenagers and enjoy your meal...... LOL Anyway ive said more then Ive meant to and hope any of the tips on the thread are helpful.... I know what Her Dotness was trying to say and shes right but dont forget to do a lil research too for the kind of food you want.
With a dream & a wish,
We'll be on our way,
To a wonderful vacation,
A Disney dream day!!
What you said reminded me that those unaccustomed to a more elegant atmosphere than, say, Red Lobster or Outback may not feel so comfy in V&A's. It really is fine dining in every sense.
I mean, if you're carrying a handbag, you'll be offered either a hook to hang it from the edge of the table or a small upholstered stool to place it on while you dine. That was almost too classy for words.
In Epcot with our fave little snowman, Olaf. Magic Shots are such fun!
My votes for most romantic out of the parks would be Jiko in AKL, Narcoossee's amd Citricos and my favorite is Victoria & Alberts, I went to V&A on my solo trip and since I was alone they seated me closest to the harpist!! As a music lover this was fantastic, the service is incredible and so relaxed and romantic that I highly recommend this restaurant to any couple. It is pricey but worth it, and don't worry about it being too fancy, yes you dress up but the CMs explain everything and just want you to truly enjoy your meal. Even if you don't go on your honeymoon try it on another trip it is worth it.
