The Best Disney World Restaurants for Date Night

As evidenced by the Disney Princess bouquets, Valentine’s Day has arrived, and though ‘romance’ isn’t necessarily the first word you think of when you think of Disney World, there are plenty of places to celebrate this romantic holiday in the Most Magical Place on Earth!

A Valentine’s Day treat

Sure, you can canoodle on Peter Pan’s Flight or treat yourselves to a spa service at Disney’s Grand Floridian, but for the quintessential Disney date night, there are a few restaurants we think fit the bill perfectly!

Whether you’re looking for a high-end steakhouse or a chic wine bar, these are the 11 best Disney World restaurants for a date night:


Looking to impress your date? Look no further than Amare, the stunning and elegant Mediterranean restaurant inside the equally stunning Walt Disney World Swan Reserve.


The restaurant is beautiful, and so is the food, which tends to be a bit lighter, fresher, and healthier, so instead of sharing spaghetti and meatballs, Lady & the Tramp-style, you can share Hearth Fired Tiger Prawns, Citron Chicken, and Hand Made Manti Dumplings!

Wine Bar George

There’s something so innately romantic about wine, especially if you’re sharing a nice bottle or some bubbly in Disney World’s rustic-chic Wine Bar George.

Cozy spot for date night, no?

The menu is shareable and snackable, with tasty tidbits like flaming Saganaki, Charcuterie Boards, and the made-for-two Grilled Whole Greek Sea Bass. To drink, servers here are experts at guiding you through the hefty wine list, to find the perfect pairing, and ensure your dreamy date night goes down smooth.


From the Cinderella Castle views to the aphrodisiac-filled seafood menu, Narcoossee’s at Disney’s Grand Floridian has “date night” written all over it.


Intimate and sophisticated, the restaurant is the perfect place for a lavish dinner for two, over gorgeous plates of Shrimp and Crab Cakes, Blackened Salmon, and Filet Mignon with Buttery Potato Mash.

Yachtsman Steakhouse

Similar to Narcoossee’s, Yachtsman Steakhouse is that special gem of a restaurant with a penchant for surf & turf and an atmosphere of elegance.

Filet Mignon

Designed to look like the polished hull of a luxury ship, the Steakhouse is the perfect voyage for a decked-out date night. Our faves? Lobster Bisque, the 28-oz Porterhouse for Two, and Seafood Cioppino, and the Yachtsman’s Chocolate Cake, which is also made for two, but you might want to get an extra one anyway.

Be Our Guest

Of course any restaurant themed after Beauty & the Beast, a romantic tale as old as time, needs to be on your date night bucket list. Especially when said restaurant is literally located inside a castle!

Be Our Guest

Case in point: Be Our Guest, the French-ish restaurant in Magic Kingdom, where the sprawling central dining room is sure to make you feel all the feels! And eat a feast that lives up to the restaurant’s namesake scene in the movie, with Herb-salted Pork tenderloin, Pan-seared Sea Scallops, and Lemon Jam Macarons. Plus, this is one of the only restaurants in the Magic Kingdom that serves alcohol, and we can’t think of anything more date night-worthy than some Private Label Champagne.

California Grill

The romantic fireworks are sure to spark at this iconic Disney World restaurant atop Disney’s Contemporary Resort, and not just literally, thanks to the fireworks views over Magic Kingdom! 

California Grill Fireworks Party

The dinner menu is a splurge-worthy tasting menu format, with options like House-made Artisanal-style Duck À L’Orange Pizza, 35oz Beef Rib-Eye Tomahawk Steak for Two, and Lavender Sugar Doughnuts! If you’re looking for that serious “wow” factor (or a chance to pop the question?!), this is it.

Chefs de France

There’s something undeniably romantic and alluring about a Parisian brasserie, and that’s exactly the vibe that Chefs de France captures in EPCOT. This bustling, charming restaurant will make you feel like you’re honeymooning in the City of Love!

Chefs de France

And there’s lots to love about Chefs de France, from the staggering wine list and French Champagnes to the French cheeses, Boeuf Bourguignon, and Ratatouille. And when you’re done with dinner, you can hop around the corner and go on the Ratatouille ride, hand-in-hand!

Il Mulino New York Trattoria

Looking for some big-city glam? This upscale New York City import, located inside the Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort and resplendent with swanky decor, gets the job done quite nicely!

Il Mulino

For dinner, it’s an Italian feast for the senses, with Parmigiano Reggiano for two, Tuscan-style beef carpaccio, seafood risotto, Spaghetti Carbonara, and a 14-oz Grilled Boneless Rib-Eye with spinach and Chianti sauce.

Le Cellier

Seriously, what could be more romantic than a candlelit dinner of steak and seafood inside a castle, in a room that looks like a regal wine cellar? Rhetorical question, because there is nothing more romantic than Le Cellier.

Le Cellier Dining Room

This epic special-occasion spot in EPCOT’s Canada Pavilion delivers the goods, both with its immersive ambience and its indulgent menu, which runs the gamut from Prince Edward Island Mussels and French Onion Soup to New York Strip Steak and Bison Strip Loins.


The way to someone’s heart is through bread. Specifically, a shareable platter of Indian-style Bread Service, with prime sunset views and African animals roving around in the background. It’s quite the scene at Sanaa!


This stylish and exotic hot spot in Disney’s Animal Kingdom is as fun as it is flavorful, ensuring an evening of entertainment and unique eats — e.g. African-inspired Biryani, Kheer Coconut-Rice pudding, Goan Seafood Curry — with the one you love.

Topolino’s Terrace

Speaking of amazing views, they don’t get much better than Topolino’s Terrace, the Mediterranean-style restaurant atop Disney’s Riviera Resort, with sweeping views of Disney World and food that is equally as photogenic.

Topolino’s Terrace Views

French and Italian dishes are sure to dazzle on any date night, with options like Escargot en Gougères, Lobster Linguine, and Classic Sole Meunière. Our favorite date night pairing? A glass of Prosecco and the sunset view from the terrace.

Romance is in the air

So whether you’re looking for dinner by a makeshift savanna, a wine-filled tasting menu, or an enchanting meal inside a castle, you can’t go wrong with any of these date night-worthy restaurants at Disney World!
