    Anyone dined at Akershus before? If so, what did you think of it.

    It's a place I've never considered eating at in the past but the menu looks ok. Am I correct in thinking that everyone gets the same starter and desert, you then choose your own main course?

    Do you have to sit at a table with other guests or would we get a table for two?

    If you don't like Princesses, this is possibly not the place to go as it is a Character Meal with the Princesses.

    Links to menus are below:

    It's not that we don't like the princesses, we just like the faceless characters way better.
    Looking for somewhere to eat at Epcot that we've never tried before and the menu looked ok. I'm one of those fussy eaters so quite a few of the restaurants we've never tried before.

    Akershus used to be my favourite restaurant inside WDW before they brought the princesses in to the equation. I have no idea why they did (well, yes I do really) as princesses have no place in Norse mythology. :-) I loved the food and it was often known as Epcot's hidden gem. It was a haven of peace and quiet and all the family loved it.
    I couldnt believe what a mad house it had become when we tried it our visit before last. The food had gone down the pan, there were far more tables and as princesses arent our thing, it definitely was a mistake to return. All in all, we hated it, but to be fair, all the little girls around us were in heaven.

    I'm agreeing with you a lot at the moment Mags but yep we hated it last time with the princesses. It WAS great pre-characters but now it's just a place to hold parents hostage until they've paid the requisite price for their kids to see the princesses.

    I used to love love love Akershus before they bought in the princesses and dropped the buffet. Ate there 3 times in one trip once. Totally ruined now.

    Thanks for the replies guys. I think we'll just stick to counter service.....the pain being we like different places so we have to sit through four meals on one day to get lunch and dinner each

    Used to like Rose and Crown until they changed menu. I have booked Nine Dragons for our other day at Epcot

    Have you tried Biergarten? I think it's pretty good. You do sit with others but its not like you have to chat with them.

    Have you tried Teppan Edo?

    We did Biergarten a couple of years back but didn't much like having to sit with strangers.

    teppan Edomite really isn't my cup of tea Johnie. I'm way too fussy

    It's very basic though.
