Victoria & Albert's Review

At this ultraposh award-winning Disney restaurant, a well-polished service team will anticipate your every need during a gourmet extravaganza. This is one of the plushest fine-dining experiences in Florida, with an ambiance so sophisticated that children under 10 aren't on the guest list. The seven-course, prix-fixe menu changes daily, and you'd do well to supplement the $135 tab with a $65 wine pairing. Appetizer choices may include Maine lobster with watermelon radish, kohlrabi (a type of cabbage), and vanilla aïoli. Entrées may feature duck three ways with salsify (a root vegetable with an oyster-like flavor) and squash purée followed by Japanese Wagyu strip loin with oxtail jus. For most of the year, there are two seatings, at 5:45 and 9 pm. In July and August, however, there's generally just one seating at 6:30 pm. For a more luxe experience, reserve a table in the intimate Queen Victoria Room or at the Chef's Table, which has more courses (10) and a bigger bill ($210).

    As fake and kitschy as anything else Disney

    For Pete's sake, a restaurant is not a theme ride. But ignore the tacky waiter/waitress act, which is enough to make one want to run out of the restaurant screaming, and stick around for the best food in Orlando.

    By no means the best food in the world. It is not in the same league as per se, the French Laundry, elBulli, the Fat Duck, Pierre Gagnaire, Auberge de l'Ill, Arzak, Michel Bras, per se, Tetsuya's, Ducasse, Ramsey, Savoy and the like. In New York, it would get one Michelin star and 22/30 from Zagat (or might get laughed out of town as a dinner murder mystery theatre).

    So take the "it is the best meal I ever had" with a grain of salt because you'll be grossly disappointed ... after all, these plaudits come from someone who has chosen to visit Orlando and, worse, Disneyworld.
    But set your expectations to having something a notch better than TGI Friday's in this culinary black hole, and you'll be pleasantly surprised.

    Disney World for Adults

    We just ate at Victoria and Albert's - were skeptical to think such great food could exist at Disney World, but it was fabulous. My husband and I have eaten at some of the best restaurants and we considered our meal here on the best we've ever had. Check it out - you won't be disappointed.
