Restaurants in Epcot??

Hello you wonderful PP.

I need some help. I am planning a trip in May 2014 (finger crossed) and I am having troubles on which restaurant would be good to go too and the reason you like it. Either Lunch or Dinner. We are not the kind of people that likes to dress up, we like our jeans and shorts. LOL

Any assistant you guys can give would be grateful. Thanks again!!

If you are looking for a CS we like Sunshine Seasons. Its has a large selection of food and is one of the best CS in WDW.

Thanks Michael. That is a start. What do you like for a sit down restaurant?

I've heard Via Napoli is good. We'll be trying it on our next trip. We love Biergarten.

Great ambience and service. The pizzas are fabulous and so are the appetizers and the entrees. It's one of the better restaurants at all WDW imho. Great cocktails

For Epcot table service meals my favorites are Rose & Crown pub, Les Chefs De France, Biergarten, Restaurant Marrakesh and Teppan Edo. All are laid back and you will feel quite comfortable in jeans while dining at these restaurants. Marrakesh has belly dancers at night and Biergarten has entertainment as well, Teppen Edo the chefs prepare your meal right in front of you and put on quite a show. But I will admit, you really can't go wrong in Epcot for restaurants they are all pretty good.

CS/You really can't beat Sunshine Seasons or the Fish place in UK/my FAVorite lunch!. Table Service......I love Biergarten/it's just FUN, The dining in Mexico is very nice, and a nice atmosphere, Rose and Thorn in UK is nice. Canada USED to be nice, but haven't been able to get a reservation in several years. All of these are casual enough and not at all presumptuous.

For hearty foods, try Biergarten (good beer too). It's a buffet with entertainment. You are seated at tables next to others, but even though my husband is not big on socializing with strangers, he was very happy with our meal there. The folks seated next to us turned out to live only 40 miles away from us in VA! Foods at our lunch included salads (try the wurst salad!), roast chicken, salmon, roasted potatoes, spatzle (I ate tons of this), pretzel rolls, and much more. We enjoyed the not too sweet struedel for dessert with excellent coffee.

We like Sunshine Seasons too, although last time we were a bit disappointed with the Asian-style main dishes; too much sauce drown the chicken and veggies. The desserts were great though, and I can recommend other things like the salads. You can refill your drinks here too. It can get noisy and crowded, but there are lots of tables. We found a relatively quiet one in a corner and had a peaceful meal.

We also like Tangierine Cafe in Morocco, where they have a coffee bar in the back with great pastries. And our son (aka Mr. Picky) has become fond of the orange chicken at Lotus Blossom in China. Yes, it's pretty much mall-type Chinese food, but it's always been hot and well prepared. On our most recent trip, I was pleased to find a new dish, vegetable curry, on the menu. It was filling and good. Desserts are limited to ice creams in what sound like exotic flavors, but which are a good finish to the meal.

I'll second the Via Napoli recommendations.

Via Napoli has a wonderful menu and a casual dining room in which to eat it. We've eaten there several times and never have been disappointed.

Try the arancini- Delicious rice/cheese balls deep fried and served swimming in a puddle of marinara sauce.

We always get pizza and one of their signature aqua fresca juices. The strawberry is so refreshing on a hot day!

As much as I wanted to go to Via Napoli, we discussed it and we're dropping it for this trip. Too many other options we want to try first. I suggest looking on allears.com and check out the menus.
