Boot Hill Ted’s Review of Victoria’s

We are here at about 1:30pm and there was a small queue. It did get longer after we sat down. There was just enough seats, but there are extras outside the restaurant if it’s very busy.

The selection of sandwiches was limited (3 options) but they were all quite nice. May not suit fussy eaters as there was salad, mustard etc. on them. I don’t think you can order them plain as they appeared to be pre-made.

I ordered a ‘Victoria’s Menu’ which is a sandwich, side of salad or crisps, and a drink. This was €12.

See the current menu here.

Fuente del Oro is an American South-West themed Counter Service restaurant situated in Fronteirland in Parc Disneyland.  Here you can have some Mexican-inspired dishes such as Enchiladas and Fajitas.

When you walk into this restaurant you’ll be greeted by lovely colourful themed decor, some of it based on the movie ‘Coco’.  There is seating provided both indoors and outdoors.

The set menus include a main, side, dessert and drink.  I can highly recommend the Loaded Fries!  The Churros are very popular and can be bought separately.  You can also visit Fuente del Oro for an ‘Instant Délice’ (drink and snack), with an option of a souvenir mug.

Lucky Nugget Saloon

See the current menu here.

I ate in the Lucky Nugget Saloon last year, and really was pleasantly surprised. I’d not researched it whatsoever, and was expecting the usual counter service style place; queue up and pay, collect your food and then find a seat, but the Lucky Nugget is actually more of a counter service and table service hybrid! It is located on the left as you pass through the entrance to Frontierland that is near Casey’s Corner, and offers a Tex-Mex style cuisine.

Setting

Upon entry, you are handed a menu from which you order right at the door. Once you’ve ordered and paid, you are shown to a seat – the inside of this place really is stunning! It’s like a theatre, and throughout the day they have puppets on the stage, and a Toy Story show at certain times. The puppets tell the story behind the Lucky Nugget Saloon; I won’t spoil it but it focusses on Diamond Lil, who stumbled on a lucky golden nugget and decided to spend it on building the saloon. It’s really good entertainment – not too loud or intrusive but nice as a background to a nice lunch.

Inside the saloon, seating consists of tables in the centre and also a long bar all around the edge which is slightly raised higher than the centre area with tables

 

Food and service

Once ordered, this is where Lucky Nugget varies from other places. Food is served in little baskets, and your drinks and mains are brought to your table, as opposed to you collecting them. Once done your baskets of food are cleared for you, and desserts then brought over. The food was exquisite – I had the ribs and the meat really does fall off of the bone, which for me is absolutely perfect. The ribs come with onion rings and chips, as well as a drink and dessert, for 21,99€. Yes, it is expensive, and subsequently, I wouldn’t eat there every day, but it is reflected in the sort-of table service you receive, the show you watch, and the portions you receive. I would definitely recommend it, and if you’re looking for something between a sit-down table service meal, and a quick counter service meal, and you’re happy to pay the price which also sits between table and counter service, I’d definitely pay the Lucky Nugget Saloon a visit.

Pizzeria Bella Notte

For the current menu, see here.

I absolutely love Bella Notte, for a whole multitude of reasons; the portions are great, the food is delicious, the location is brilliant, and the prices are wonderful!

Bella Notte is a counter service restaurant, with three set menus plus a kid’s menu. As far as I’m aware, there is not an A La Carte menu at present. Menu 1 (12,99€) is pasta, a side and a drink, Menu 2 (13,99€) is lasagne, a side, a dessert and a drink, and Menu 3 (14,99€) is a pizza, a side, a dessert and a drink.

The pasta is delicious; either Neapolitan or Bolognese. I had the Neapolitan and it was yummy – it didn’t taste artificial or like it had been sitting around for ages and was piping hot. My only gripe was that my sauce was on top of the pasta and mixing it through in the little box was a pain.

The pizzas are my go-to; big enough to share, or great if you’ve got a late dinner reservation and need to keep yourself going all afternoon. Both the Royale and 3-cheese are delicious, loaded with cheese, and the ham on the Royale is so nice – thick and yummy, not watery or artificial. They’re filling and well worth the money, even more so if sharing! My only wish is that they were Mickey-shaped, like the kid’s ones are!

The sides are salad, or a large slice of garlic baguette, which I always go for! My knowledge of the desserts is limited due to my allergies, but I can definitely recommend the Greek yoghurt!

I had the Hotel Meal Plan in February, and vouchers can be used at Bella Notte. To ensure we had food for both the first and last day, the group of 4 I went with used 2 vouchers on the day we arrived, and shared pizzas, garlic bread, a dessert and drink, and saved the other 2 vouchers for our final day. I can assure you despite only having half a pizza each, we definitely did not go hungry either!

Setting

I personally think the location of Bella Notte is brilliant; it’s at the entrance to Fantasyland, so not on the edges of the Disneyland Park and can hence be reached quickly from wherever you are really. Also, it’s a brilliant place to nip into before or after the parade as it’s right at the end/start of the route (depending on which way it’s going). It is a little dark inside, the place would definitely benefit from more lighting, but the servers are efficient and I go back time and time again, so would definitely recommend it!

Allergies

Being allergic to both nuts and some fruits can make the set menu counter services a little difficult, as I can’t have the brownie, the ice cream or the fruit cup which is often the dessert on offer. At Bella Notte, I normally get Menu 3 and cannot have either dessert. On multiple occasions, I’ve explained this to the CM serving us, and they have offered any of the other desserts. The only thing I sometimes find when getting a dessert switched is that they don’t always put it through the till, and so I’ll sometimes be given the wrong dessert when I collect the food, but a quick explanation and it’s all sorted and I’ve never had an issue.

Cape Cod

See the current menu here.

Priced at 34,99€ for adults and 24,99€ for children it does specialise in fish, and does an excellent job of it, but still caters well for those not big fans of fish, just maybe not as amazingly as other places. This buffet is really wonderful , and I would happily eat here if I didn’t want the price tag and characters that Inventions offers, it really was delicious and a lovely meal. I last ate in here in February 2017, and had a wonderful time.

Starters

This was heavily fish-orientated; king prawns in shells, bullots, smoked salmon, various patés and some pasta salads as well as a small selection of salad-y bits such as leaves, croutons etc.

Mains

I was seriously impressed with what was on offer here. For the fish lovers, the showstopper was a whole salt-encrusted sea bass, carved in front of you which was incredible. Cod in a creamy sauce, salmon with tomatoes, beautifully cooked tuna steaks and mussels in white wine sauce were on offer, and it all looked stunning. For those not so fussed about fish, there was still a wonderful selection. Pasta dishes, both vegetarian, and with meat all looked delicious, a personal favourite was the tortellini. On top of this a curried beef stew and a joint of lamb carved in front of you were also available. Sides such as chips, various vegetables (green beans, carrots, baby corn to name a few) and roast potatoes were available. Finally, for kids, there was the usual pizza slices, fish or chicken nuggets, chips, and pasta with either a pesto or bolognese sauce.

Desserts

If it serves île flottante, it’s a good restaurant in my eyes! However, for those whose lives don’t revolve around meringue and crème anglaise, I think you’d still be happy here. Crème brûlée, rice pudding and coulis, jelly, fresh fruit, fruit tarts, waffles and chocolate sauce to name a few!

Service

Service here was good – it is a large restaurant and was very busy and so service was slower than I’ve had in other places at Disneyland. However, the servers were all cheery, welcoming and made conversation with us, which made up for things like the drinks and bill taking a little longer to arrive.

Allergies

In terms of allergies, this was a little different to other restaurants. After having seen the allergy tick sheet at previous buffets, I was surprised when I was told there wasn’t one in Cape Cod. However, the CM took me to the head chef, who took me around the buffet at a lovely slow pace, and explained very clearly what was and wasn’t safe for me, and also said that he could do me plain grilled fish or meat of my choice with vegetables, or he could remake anything in a sauce without the nuts in it so I could have the cod in creamy sauce that was available.
