As you enter the Mexican pavilion, and make your way to the back of the room you come to San Angel Inn, a delicious restaurant that serves authentic Mexican cuisine. The food here is consistent and there seems to be something on the menu for everyone. The wait-staff is courteous and polite, and their nametags don’t just list their names, but the area in Mexico they come from. This is a delightful spot for lunch or dinner or even to stop for an appetizer or relax with a Margarita (they even have sizes big enough to share).
What stands out about the atmosphere is the small details. The ceiling looks like a beautiful night where the sun has just set. Forever in twilight, the sky inside the Mexico Pavilion gives even Pirates of the Caribbean a run for its money on how authentically outside Disney imagineers can make a ceiling inside look! The architecture of the buildings which line the sides of the marketplace have an authentic colonial look and feel. Paper lanterns are strung from one side to the other, creating a sweet, romantic, and fun atmosphere. Mariachi Cobre, an authentic Mexican mariachi band, can be seen and heard around the perimeter of the market. The best part is in the far distance a volcano that appears to be active and even smoldering a bit.
San Angel Inn is on the Disney Dining Plan and will cost you one table service credit per member of your travel party. With it’s beautiful, and uber-authentic atmosphere, San Angel Inn is a “must try” on your Disney Dining Plan. You can view their full menu HERE.
Overall, we give San Angel Inn an “A”.
