Top 5 Table Service Meals at Epcot

via napoli

If you are planning your dining reservations for your upcoming Disney trip chances are you are going to want to include a restaurant or two in Epcot. Epcot is home to arguably the best table service meal choices in any theme park.

This list was exceedingly hard to make, but here are my top five pics for table service meals at Epcot. I have not ranked these in any particular order as they are all great options!

1. Via Napoli in the Italy pavilion is always a winner. You really cannot go wrong with pizza and this is the best pizza on property!  The pizza is made in a wood fired oven and it is sure to please both kids and adults. I am a big fan of the Margherita pizza!

2. Garden Grill is located in the Land Pavilion. This is a family style meal that includes not only great food (especially the bread and butter) but also Mickey, Chip, Dale, and Pluto. This restaurant also rotates. That means it spins very slowly as you eat so you get new scenery throughout your meal.

3. Rose and Crown Pub located in the UK pavilion is a great choice for families or couples. The fish and chips is delicious and the view of the world showcase lagoon is to die for. If you can get an outside seat during illuminations I promise it will be one of the most memorable meals of your vacation!

4. Akershus is another great character dining option…but this time the characters are of the royal variety. In my opinion this is princess dining at it’s very best…dare I say better than Cinderellas Royal Table.  Great food, great character interactions, and you also have a great chance of getting a reservation here, unlike other princess meals!

5. Le Cellier located in the Canada pavilion is a great option for some steak and cheddar cheese soup. This restaurant is considered a signature restaurant which means it will cost two credits on the dining plan, but it remains one of the hardest reservations to get at Disney World. Make sure if you want to eat here you make your reservations at the 180 day mark.

    I’m curious as to why #3, 4, & 5 are crossed out? Anyways, I’ve had Garden Grill this year and wasn’t impressed. However, we LOVED Le Cellier. The Akershus breakfast was pretty good, too. Can’t wait to try Via Napoli next time!!

  • Mike G

    German Buffet is SO Underrated

  • Rachel Hoye

    Switch Le Cellier and Garden Grill. I didn’t care for garden grill. Food wasn’t great even though I like the restaurant and characters.

  • Kimberly Searcy

    I love Coral Reef! The food was great and I really loved the beautiful aquarium there too! they also have they’re own brew which is really yummy. I ate at Garden Grill after the 1/2 marathon last year and it was a blast, even without kids, the characters were hysterical

  • Myria Johnson

    I feel that Coral Reef is always overlooked at Epcot. The food is really good and the view of the aquariums is amazing. It is a quieter restaurant than many of the others.

  • Nikki Hall Walsh

    We always go to Le Cellier. The cheddar cheese soup is amazing!

  • Powell Golfer

    Tusker House w/Donald, Mickey, Minnie, Daisy, and Goofy is our favorite character meal. The food is wonderful

  • Powell Golfer

    Our favorite is Chefs de France. We also love San Angel and Rose & Crown.

  • Stefanie Bartolomeo

    I loved San Angel when I had lunch there several months ago! It was one of the best cooked steaks I’ve ever had & you can’t beat Mexico’s atmosphere inside the market! I also love to eat at the Rose & Crown (I recommend the Cottage Pie & potato leek soup if available). I got the chance once to move outside just before the fireworks & it was so amazing!! I did not care much for Teppan Edo. Maybe it was an off night but our chef was just ok & I was not impressed for the price we paid. I felt the same way about Restaurant Marrakesh; it was just alright for the price. I did enjoy the belly dancer though as well as the music there. I’ve been to Via Napoli several times & I do recommend it for their Margherita pizza & a nice glass of wine. It would be wonderful if Biergarten had an a la carte option, at least just for lunch to sit down & be entertained. A full blown German food buffet sounds too heavy for me while walking all day out in the heat.

    We loved Garden Grill. It was the best character interaction we had our entire trip. The trip included Chef Mickey.

  • Janelle Bergman Chandler

    thank you! This helps so much for our trip planning!!

    I have not tried any of the TS that you choose as your top 5, but we just got back from our trip, and our Top 2 TS meal’s were Teppan Edo, and San Angel. Teppan Edo, in Japan, is defiantly one of our favorite restaurants now. The food was great, the atmosphere was wonderful and the chef’s are amazing. We celebrated my parents 50th Anniversary there and the chef made Mickey Mouse holding a Mickey balloon with the number 50 out of zuchinni and onions. So much fun.
    We also ate at San Angel, in Mexico. Again, we thought the food was great, the atmosphere is fun, and we had the sweetest waitress. And the margaritas weren’t half bad either. I expected them to be watered down, but watered down, they were not. Yummy.
