EPCOT Dining Rankings: Where to Satisfy Your Cravings

EPCOT, known for its delectable dining options, has a wide array of restaurants to choose from. But do all of them live up to the hype? Not quite. The verdict can vary from person to person, depending on individual tastes and preferences. If you’re in the process of planning your EPCOT itinerary or looking to make Advance Dining Reservations (ADR), this guide can be a helpful starting point.

Please keep in mind that the following rankings are entirely based on personal opinions. Dining experiences can be highly subjective, and what makes a restaurant stand out for one person may not be the same for another. Factors such as food quality and service can greatly influence our perceptions.

Use this article as a foundation for your planning or as an additional perspective while considering your dining options at EPCOT. It’s always beneficial to have a starting point, especially if you have budget constraints or limited time during your visit.

Best Table Service Restaurant at EPCOT: The Garden Grill

When thinking about EPCOT’s culinary offerings, The Garden Grill emerges as a top choice. This restaurant boasts high-quality ingredients, a diverse menu to cater to all tastes, and a unique character dining experience. What sets it apart is the seating arrangement, which allows for multiple character interactions without feeling awkward. Additionally, The Garden Grill’s location, revolving around the “Living with the Land” attraction, adds to its charm.

Best Quick Service Restaurant at EPCOT: Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie (France)

Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie in the France pavilion earns the title of the best quick service restaurant at EPCOT. Known for its exceptional quality, this traditional French bakery offers a variety of sandwiches and desserts that are sure to delight your taste buds. The diverse menu ensures that there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

Worst Table Service Restaurant: Nine Dragons Restaurant (China)

In the realm of table service dining at EPCOT, Nine Dragons Restaurant in the China pavilion falls short in terms of food quality. Over the years, the quality of their cuisine has deteriorated significantly. When compared to the culinary offerings found throughout the World Showcase, Nine Dragons simply can’t compete.

Worst Quick Service Restaurant: Tangerine Cafe (Morocco)

Tangerine Cafe in Morocco may not be the most popular pick, but it’s essential to prioritize quality over convenience. While the food isn’t necessarily terrible, it lacks the exceptional quality that one would expect from the World Showcase. The bigger issue lies in the consistency of service and the fact that little seems to change. Before you opt for Tangerine Cafe, consider other options in the park.
