Blue Bayou

Cajun and creole cuisine. Lunch and dinner.

It’s tough to find a more enchanting setting than Blue Bayou, and better yet, it’s smack dab in the middle of the Pirates of Caribbean attraction. A dreamy, moonlit terrace overlooking the bayou is strung with Chinese lanterns and surrounded by live oak trees dripping with moss. Louisiana-style cuisine is on the menu, totally overpriced, but who cares when there’s scenery like this?

The fiery jambalaya is respectably studded with shrimp, chicken breast, Tasso ham, and Andouille sausage (this is one large dish, so do consider splitting). Or just opt for a Monte-Cristo sandwich, always a popular if not an overly rich choice.

Cara’s Tip: Request a waterside table on arrival, but don’t fret if you don’t get it or the wait is just too long; you’ll still enjoy the restaurant’s atmosphere nonetheless as long as it isn’t in the very back too far away from the water. If you forget to make reservations at Blue Bayou and there are none to be had on arrival, no problem. You’ll find Monte Cristo sandwiches as well as Cajun/Creole specialties around the corner at Café Orleans, a much easier place to grab a seat.
