You can travel to the Grand Floridian by monorail, when you get there you will pass several restaurants at the entrance, Narcoosee' s is housed in a separate building, on the lagoon. It takes about five minutes to walk to it from the main building.
The restaurant' s decor is airy and contemporary, with hardwood floors, high ceilings and a wall of windows overlooking the Seven Seas Lagoon. The atmosphere is a bit more formal than many restaurants at Disney World, but it is not formal dining wear just smart casual.
Narcoosee' s does accommodate families and has a special children' s menu, which includes grilled fish, a petite filet, or the ever-popular peanut butter and jelly and chicken fingers. Although the atmosphere is not as relaxed as other Disney restaurants, it certainly is a great spot for watching the Magic Kingdom' s fireworks or the Electric Water Pageant.
You wait in a well stocked bar and enjoy the view of the lagoon while you watch the Magic Kingdom castle, which dominates the horizon, changing colour. When you make your reservation request a window table and they will do their best to accommodate you.
We had a great server who made several menu suggestions and saw that we were supplied with water and warm bread whilst we decided on our order.
Many of the appetizers and entrees were seafood-inspired. I opted for the shrimp and crab stack which was delicious whilst my Mother had the Maine lobster salad, which came with a crisp potato pancake and light champagne vinaigrette.
My Father started his meal with oysters breaded in a rough cornmeal, accompanied by bacon and leeks; he said it was one of the best appetizers he had ever eaten.
For the main course Mother and I ordered the porcini risotto, which came with a generous assortment of grilled vegetables, including asparagus, zucchini, orange bell pepper and onions. It is not often I have eaten such lovely vegetables and the risotto was as close to perfect as could be. My Father devoured the ahi tuna, which was coated with coriander, and served with a small salad in a ginger dressing.
My Mother could not eat a dessert but I tried the tiramisu which really was lovely whilst my Father had, as he always does, the key lime creme brulee. I am not a lover of key lime but having tried his I had to agree I could have eaten a portion myself.
The meal cost us about $60 per head which included a bottle of wine. I thought this was reasonable for such a relaxing meal in very tranquil surroundings.
