Every Disney holiday we have started our first morning at ohana breakfast, but that last year was awful, food was OK, but service was so so poor. The server was grumpy, and spent most of his time talking to another table near us, and only came over to us to drop the food off then came back to drop the bill off, didn't even ask if we wanted more drinks or food, and by the time he came back we were just ready to get out of there as it had already been over an hour.
The characters were OK, but much quicker than previous visits, and even had to ask if one of the characters could come back as a member of our party was in the toilet, we were met with a grump from the characters handler and 'if we have time we'll come back', wouldn't have minded but our server hadn't advised us the characters were on there way to us, which they always have done previously (probably coz our server didn't come to the table at all) but when you are paying such a premium for a meal you expect some level of service. It is such a shame as we will not waste our money there next holiday and used to be a must do.

We also love trex, I know it gets a lot of hate, but we've always had good meals and good service there.

I also don't think tiffins gets as much love as it should. Every meal we've had there has been amazing and well worth the cost, but I suppose not to everyone's taste.
I always think, should we give dinner a try as it may well be a completely different experience, but then I remember that day, and standing at the front desk at POFQ after 10 hours in MK complaining (I also complained whilst there) and how crap it made me feel, that I don't think we ever would go back.

T Rex is one of our faves, always will be I think as it caters to everyone and the theming is just brilliant. I've looked at Tiffins a few times, but never fancied it, maybe i'll look again!

Another that had a good meal at Mama Melrose, if I was hyper critical I'd say that my cheese pasta was over done but it tasted good & the steak was really good.

I'd be curious to know if you'd give Flying Fish another chance one day. Sounds like it was an awful experience but it's quite possible that you were just unlucky that day.

I think that the breakfast buffets tend to be much better than lunch/dinner at Boma and Garden Grill and enjoy both. Didn't like Tutto Italia (completely packed, over priced and food wasn't great). Sanna has also gone down hill IMHO. Best restaurant on Disney Property for us is Boathouse, not cheap but always have a great meal there.

Everyone always seems to rave about Mama Melrose, but we've not eaten there since 2011 - our experience was horrific. 90 minute wait, terrible wine, luke warm food. No ta.

Via Napoli also always seems to get good reviews but we were just a bit 'meh' with it. The pizza was just a bit wet and soggy for us!

TBH, however, aside from this, I would struggle to find a restaurant at Disney that we haven't had a good meal in. Le Cellier is not as good as it used to be for us, but I think that's more because we've discovered other restaurants that we prefer to eat at... rather than a substantial dip in quality for Le Cellier!

The Boathouse, Narcoossee's and California Grill are still our stand outs. They're the restaurants that make it onto our 'must do' list, time and time again.
