    I have enjoyed it all 3 times I've been there. We went when it first opened and they were working out the kinks in the menu. I love the pastichio, but it is HUGE. I have also been able to get the Kouzinna Sampler on the app menu as my meal on DDP. The lamb meatballs were so good!

    We are huge Cat Cora fans, Mari and were really disappointed. The food is inconsistent with regard to quality and there is a serious need to have someone (anyone, please!!!) running the front of the house. Their front of the house people absolutely do not know how to operate their computer system. This results in people waiting for long periods of time beyond their reservations. People walk out they get so tired of waiting and having people seated before them (who walked in after them)!

    I really don't know what to tell you. :sorry:

    I have to agree with Tink, though I have only been once, this year. We were seated at Table 1, that caught the draught from the counter service window, and that was our main view. The food, as Tink said, was inconsistent, some good, some mediocre, and the service was patchy. Not what I would call a top notch restaurant. We would not go back for dinner, though we have heard better things about the breakfast.

    I am sure it accommodates children well like the other Disney restaurants, but I wouldn't say that there was anything extra interesting in there to make it more fun for them, if that makes sense?

    We've only been there once. The food was good, but not great. We'll get back one of these days however.

    I had read something similar to what written here, either a good or a terrible experience.. or maybe just not good enough for the price!!

    thanks so much :)

    I've been twice, and will say, although nothing was particularly "bad" there wasn't anything that draws me back in a hurry.

    We initially went for the same reason you mentioned...we love Iron Chef, and in particular Cat Cora, but in our opinion, our devotion to her did not translate into a devotion for this restaurant.

    Like I said, I can't put my finger on anything that was terribly wrong...but I wasn't impressed either. It was just.....meh.

    We had breakfast there and it was just OK - Colin didn't like his at all, not that there was anything wrong with it just overpowering strong tastes, mine was OK nothing special. I would say as well the decor is quite dark and fairly boring looking especially for children (and me! :lol:)

    I think Im going to leave the ADR for now, and let Toño decide whether he wants to go or not, because in the end, we would go to make HIM happy :yes:

    Thanks for all your input :)
