    Hiya

    We have a few days booked in EPCOT but don't know where to go to eat. We tried the nine dragons last time which was ok but not great

    I heard the French restaurants were the best quality?

    Which ones have you tried?

    I highly recommend the Chefs de France restaurant at Epcot.
    They let us leave to view Illuminations on one of our visits, returning to finish our meal after it had finished and the food was great, albeit a tad pricy !

    We love TeppenEdo, we go at least once every trip. We tried Spiced Road a couple of weeks ago and we all loved it. Great apps and drinks. The service was excellent.

    Dave loves Spice Road Table but to be honest, we prefer to use the counter services at Epcot's World Showcase

    Teppan Edo for table service but our very favourite is Tangierine Café counter service.

    OOPS! Yep John is correct, it was the upstairs restaurant that I was referring to, although at the time of our visit it went under another name which to be honest I can`t remember....Café de Paris maybe ????

    I do think perhaps that Terry might have them mixed up. The upstairs restaurant is a tad pricey indeed, and they don't take TIW any longer. It was formerly known as Bistro de Paris.

    Yes, the upstairs restaurant has had a name change. :yes: Used to be our favorite table service in EPCOT, but had a less than stellar experience there once the name change happened. Hopefully, it was a one off.

    Much depends upon what you like, eh? :D We really, really enjoy the pizza at Via Napoli. It's very authentic and nicely done. We've always had loads of fun and very nice food at Marrakesh. :yes: Never been much of a fan of the Chinese restaurant, though. Germany is good if you like buffets, although they've changed up their selection quite a bit. Norway is no longer Norwegian so we've not been there since they dismantled that very nice menu! :( We happen to like the UK! :D :D I really enjoyed the bangers and mash there, and Herself loves the "pies" cottage, and shepherd's and all that jazz. :D

    Haven't ever done Japan since they changed things way back when. Not sure why, we just didn't. Haven't been to Le Cellier in years, so can't really comment there. Was busy and crowded (one table upon the other, I mean) last we were there, so we've not been back.

    For counter service, nearly any are nice! Well, with the exception of that mess in the USA pavilion. True embarrassment that one. :(

    Oooh yes we used to love love love Akershus when it was the Scandinavian buffet. Now they've changed the menu and put all those non-Norwegian princesses in there and it's all wrong.

    I know a lot of people love Teppan Edo, but we are not good at communal tables :D We would be that couple that people talk about in restaurant reviews "we had to share our table with a miserable couple who didn't talk to us and spoiled the whole experience" ;) And I know the Rose and Crown is liked by many but I can't bring myself to go to British :D For us Epcot eating is often all about the experience as well as the food and so corny as it is (and mediocre though the food is!) we like to have a lunch under the stars at San Angel Inn. We just love the theming and then hop on the silly little boat ride afterwards. And we always eat at Tutto Italia as it is one of the few places we can eat outside, and the little Italian square is so pretty to sit in - we would never eat inside there and always wait for an outdoor table. I know the food can be a bit hit and miss, but if you order the lovely large appetiser plate for 2 and some nice wine you really don't need anything else!

    San Angel for the atmosphere. Gorgeous in there, though being so dark it makes using sign language a little more tricky.
    Nine Dragons has always been one of our favourites though they could do with changing up the menu once in a while. Been the same for ages. Tasty though.

    Have been to Tepan Edo twice first time was a full table and there was no interaction with the other people but I didn't mind as was more interested In the food and the chef was very entertaining.The second time they was only me and two Japanese girls and the server got us talking interesting hearing where they were from and we had a good conversation
