Downtown Disney Restaurants
Bongos Cuban Café
Bongos is owned by Gloria and Emilio Estefan and as the name suggests serves Cuban food. Specialities include “Cubana” (a Cuban sandwich) and Paella de Mariscos (a seafood paella). The restaurant is in the shape of a huge pineapple, two storeys high, and inside mosaics of hand-painted murals are reminiscent of Cuba in the 1940’s and 50’s. Even the bar stools are shaped to look like conga drums. If you’ve never tasted Cuban food now’s your chance, the cocktails are great and the entertainment’s groovy too!
Fulton’s Crab House
If you love seafood this is the restaurant for you. The restaurant is aboard an old paddle wheel boat and the atmosphere is very friendly. Fresh fish is flown in daily and specials include Alaskan Crab, fresh seafood and filet mignon. Although quite pricey you may want to save your visit for a special occasion or just treat yourself anyway, you are on holiday after all!
House of Blues
The House of Blues serves southern and American cuisine with a twist of Jazz and blues thrown in for entertainment. If you are looking for a quiet romantic meal it might be wise to give this a miss but if you are up for some raucous rock ‘n’ roll music or a Gospel brunch you will have a brilliant time and a thoroughly enjoyable meal.
