The Coral Reef Restaurant is actually part of The Seas With Nemo and Friends Pavilion. Although the restaurant has nothing to do with the Pixar film Finding Nemo, it does take full advantage of the location. The entire seating area shares a glass wall with the 5.7 million gallon salt water tank that is the showcase of the pavilion.
Ranked #2 in the Only WDWorld Top 7 Disney Dining Plan Restaurants in Disney World, the Coral Reef specializes in seafood as well as steaks.
current dinner menu includes the following entrees: Seared Golden Tile Fish, Seared Rainbow Trout, Grilled Mahi Mahi, Pan-Seared Seasonal Catch, Seared Chicken Breast, Roasted Scottish Salmon, Wild Mushroom Lasagna, Grilled New York Strip, & Apricot Braised Beef Short Rib.
The dessert menu also has my personal favorite: The Chocolate Wave. This is a flourless chocolate cake that is truly wonderful. The Bailey's and Jack Daniel's Mousse, as well as, the Butterscotch Creme Brulee are family favorites.
Unique Atmosphere, Great Food
The Coral Reef is considered a must visit restaurant at Disney World. Even if your family is not a big fan of seafood the atmosphere alone makes it worth the visit.
If you are on the Disney Dining Plan then you definitely should have this on your list of restaurants to visit during your next trip. The great food, unique atmosphere, and strong Disney Dining Plan value all make it a must for your vacation.
