Flying Fish Café Restaurant
The Flying Fish Cafe is located at Disney’s Boardwalk. As its name suggests the emphasis is on seafood but there are also plenty of meat dishes from which to choose including chicken and beef and also vegetarian meals.
Depending on where you are seated within the restaurant you will be able to watch the chefs preparing your meals in their show kitchen. If you wish to be seated by the ‘on stage kitchen’ you must request this at the podium. This also applies if you would like a window seat.
The Flying Fish is dimly lit which makes it perfect for a romantic meal for two although on the evening we visited there were plenty of families present also. However, all the children were well behaved so it did not spoil our meal.
The menu changes often, with major changes each season. To give you an example the Flying Fish Signature dish was Potato-wrapped Red Snapper, served with cream leek fondue and red wine butter sauce. At $34, not a cheap option but it looked delicious and is served beautifully. The Crème Brulee served with caramelized bananas and chantilly cream is a very popular dessert.
The restaurant has an extensive wine list with over fifty selections by the glass with suggested food and wine pairings.
For the children the Flying Fish has a kid’s menu featuring ‘Bowl of Mickey Pasta’, grilled chicken breast or steak followed by Mickey’s Chocolate Puzzle.
The Flying Fish Café is always busy so I would recommend booking in advance by either calling in to the restaurant, perhaps during a stroll around the Boardwalk, or by telephoning 407-WDW-DINE. The restaurant’s hours are 5. 30 to 10. 30 on Fridays and Saturdays and 5. 30 to 10. 00 on Sunday through Thursday.
The restaurant’s dress code is business casual although jeans are allowed. We have also seen diners wearing shorts and t-shirts so you don’t need to worry too much about dressing up.
After our meal we strolled along the promenade of the Boardwalk looking at the quaint shops and we were just in time to see the fireworks from Epcot. The Boardwalk really comes alive at night with street entertainers including a pianist on a bicycle actually playing the piano (you really have to see that! ), a magician and a very amusing juggler.
All in all, a very pleasant evening and one which we hope to repeat on our next visit to Orlando.
