“Elegant takes” on African cuisine inspire “even the not-so-adventurous” to “trek” to this “fine-dining experience” in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, where an “excellent” staff tends a “lovely” , safari-themed setting complete with a simulated sunset; also favored by those hunting “outstanding” South African wines, it’s “costly” but “a real destination.”

Wow. Just...amazing. Disney hit the nail on the head this time. Heard this place was great and drove 2 hours, (from a restaurant rich area) to try it and were stunned with how good this place was. Surroundings 10++, service 10, food 9.5, (show me better), prices on the high side but duh. Just go. Please don't wear a tank top and be willing to spend a few bucks on a nice bottle of wine from South Africa. Thank me later.

Booked a table in advance after reading good reviews. The food was not that impressive. Expecting much better especially for the price. If you had not booked in advance then you don’t get to eat there or any of the other restaurants at the hotel except one but long lines for cafeteria food. Server was good.

Incredible dining experience in a perfect location! Food is different and unique, while being absolutely delicious! I have had a ton of steaks in my lifetime, but the Filet Mignon here with the red wine sauce has to be the single best pairing of steak and sauce that I have ever tried! That means a lot coming from me. Once you're done eating, you can go outside and see part of the Safari for Animal Kingdom. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a good place for a date, especially.
