Enjoy the taste of Southern European cuisine at Citricos, located inside Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. Inside this signature restaurant, the master chefs rotate dinner selections frequently with American dishes inspired by the cuisine of Provençe, Tuscany and the Spanish Riviera. My wife and I have eaten here three times in the last year, and each time, the menu ha been different. Menu choices including steak, pastas, and seafood, depending on the season, but every dish is unique, and every dish is delicious. You can also choose from the extensive and award winning wine list featuring a number of international wines that are available both by the glass or the bottle.
Located on the second floor, the restaurant overlooks the courtyard and pool area, and if you are enjoying a later dinner, you might even catch a view of the fireworks from the Magic Kingdom (though the music is not piped in). Other tables overlook the bustling kitchen where you can admire the chefs bring their creations to life. Although the dining room is large and seats numerous guests, it still feels very intimate and is a wonderful setting for a romantic dinner. The staff is attentive and knowledgeable.
For even more of an intimate setting, guests may elect the Chef’s Domain, where guests can order off the traditional menu or have the chef create a menu in a private dining room.
Citricos is a signature restaurant and costs two table service credits on Disney’s Dining Plan. For guests not on the plan, Citricos also accepts the Tables in Wonderland card.
