Chef Joachim Splichal of the Patina Restaurant Group has a definite crowd pleaser at this Downtown Disney® District eatery, one that has remained a popular and well-thought-of choice for many years. The two-level restaurant features a mish-mash of dining rooms with intriguing cuisine offering a variety of small plates as well as creative specialty entrées. Start with goat cheese-stuffed piquillo peppers, really a must, with its scattering of toasted pine nuts and golden raisins, although a touch of additional spice might make this dish even more interesting.

Follow with one of the earthy paella options, the lobster probably the best and actually as good as it sounds, tender yet not overcooked rice, spicy chorizo, a nice portion of Maine lobster; vegans should ask for the off-the-menu paella chocked full of wonderful smokey vegetables. Better yet it is beautifully presented in a piping hot paella pan! The bold-flavored, oxtail pasta with al dente pappardelle peppered with vegetables.

Cara’s Tip: You might want to request the rotunda room if super views of the Downtown Disney complex is what you are seeking. I think the best view is from the outdoor terrace, that is, if you don’t mind the Downtown Disney hubbub. For a quicker, lighter meal opt for the open-air Uva Bar just outside the main restaurant located in the middle of Downtown Disney’s walkway.
