Spice Road Table
World Showcase - Morocco Pavilion
The brand new Spice Road Table has just opened it's doors to the general public. It is located alongside the waterfront of the Lagoon in the Moroccan Pavilion at the Epcot World Showcase. It is open daily for Lunch and Dinner.
This new restaurant has been fantastically themed, allowing you to immerse yourself with the colourful sights and smells that authentic Morocco brings. The front of the building has been designed with a collection of shops similar to what you would find in a traditional Market Place or Souk. Moroccan music playing also adds to the ambience creating an authentic atmosphere.
As you enter the Restaurant you find yourself in the elegant plush Bar Lobby Area, it is worth noting that seating is not available at the bar, so this is more of a waiting area for guests. To the right of the Lobby is the Indoor Dining Room and to the left is the covered Outdoor Patio.
The restaurant is adorned with typical Moroccan flourishes of tapestries and artwork, Agra Lanterns and colourful yet decorative mosaic tiles. Booths are provided for indoor seating and a large outdoor terrace offers dining Al Fresco with fantastic views overlooking the Lagoon, a great vantage point for viewing the 'Illuminations : Reflections of the Earth Show', whilst sipping a Speciality Cocktail.
The menu offers Small Plates of Mediterranean Style Tapas, allowing you to savour an array of authentic Moroccan dishes. You can either select a few plates for yourself, or better still share several between you.
