Your Favourite Downtown Restaurant..

Apart from Epcot and it's great choice of restaurants, I love the choices at Downtown..From House of Blues to T-Rex, WPE to Earls..But last year we tried Cookes of Dublin and also Raglan Road..Loved both of them..But my favourite is still H.O.B....Love the atmosphere and the choices on the menu..So what Downtown restaurant is your favourite.? And what would you recommend as a must eat dish...My Blues favourite are the Ribs and the Jambalaya ...

I haven't eaten at many DTD restaurants. I did enjoy Earl of Sandwich and Portabellos.

Earl of Sandwich, hands down! Great sandwiches, giant cookies and good value overall? Sounds like a match made in heaven.

I like Earls and Portobello. Portobello is a hidden gem. I had a rotten experience at Wolfgang Puck and walked out. Planet Hollywood, HOB, and Rain Forest are what they are. Pretty much the same everywhere. I'm looking forward to trying the food trucks, the meatball one anyway.

I want to try Raglan Rd and Splitsville.

BTW! The EoS in Manhattan is nowhere near as good as Orlando for some reason.

I like Raglan Road and Earl of Sandwich. Splitsville isn't bad and the Dine-In theatre at AMC isn't bad either.

KenJ and I enjoy Raglan Road. Love their bread dip (made with Guinness beer) and their bread and butter pudding is so yummy. Hope to go back in January when we visit.

Paradiso37 has become one of our favourites to visit. We love Wolfgang Puck Cafe, never had a bad meal there, this last trip I tried the sushi, amazing. We also tried House of Blues for the first time, 'holy smokes' AMAZING!!! The wings were awesome my steak was cooked perfectly, the mash and veg that accompanied it were so tasty and fresh. The only thing I didn't like was the bourbon onions, but thankfully there are served in the separate dish.

House of Blues is now my #1 spot at DTD and are well and truly on the list for next year.

I have only eaten at one restaurant in DTD and that was on my trip in October. I ate at Wolfgang Puck's Cafe. My entree was just okay. I did like the hummus for an appetizer. Great. But my best experience was talking with our server Nada. She was a sweet girl from Lebanon.

Big fan of Paradiso 37. They have great fish tacos and is a great place to share a few appetizers and a cocktail.

Earl of Sandwich and for Poppet, I recommend the Holiday Turkey, Cannonballs, or the Original. I also like the Caprese, the Tuna Melt, and the BLT, but to a lesser degree. The tomato soup is amazing!

Earl of Sandwich was yummy and the line moved fast. I loved my holiday sandwich Smile
We also loved Fulton's Crab House, amazing wait staff, awesome atmosphere, amazing food. I got the crab, it was crazy delicious! It got sub par ratings on our guide book, but it was one of of favorite eateries while we were there.

The Full Montagu is my personal favorite. Roast beef, turkey and cheese with the fixings and the special mustard sauce. So good! biggrin
