Best Epcot Sit Down Restaurants

Let’s begin with the La Hacienda de San Angel.

La Hacienda de San Angel

  • Menu Pricing $15-$34.99 (adults) $10.50-$11.50 (children) 

Walk to the left to enter World Showcase and you’ll almost immediately come across La Hacienda de San Angel. Located on the edge of the World Showcase Lagoon, you’ll find beautiful waterfront views and a warm atmosphere with bright, rich colors.

The interior architecture and interior design pay homage to Mexican culture. If you love Mexican cuisine, you’ll have no trouble finding something delicious on this menu. The corn tortillas are house made and the sauces and guacamoles are fresh and full of flavor! There are scrumptious starters to share, and some of their house specialties include a Yucatan style catch of the day and Carne Asada.

Of course, you’ll find tacos and chile relleno on this menu, too! No matter the dietary preferences of your party, you’ll be able to find everything from chicken, steak, seafood, and vegetarian options here. Be sure not to pass on dessert either, there’s something to satisfy every sweet tooth. 

Finally, we can’t mention the Hacienda de San Angel without pointing out its very robust, and delicious margarita menu! If you love margaritas, this is going to be a must try. If seeing Harmonious is on your list of things to do, be sure to grab a reservation here for show time! Catching the show from here is sure to delight everyone in your party! 

Rose & Crown

  • Menu Pricing $14-$28.00 (adults) $9.00 -$12.00 (children) 

If you’re fan of good old-fashioned pub, I’ve got a great pick for you! You’ll find Rose & Crown on the corner in the England pavilion. This water-front pub will give you a taste of delicious British fare in a great pub atmosphere. If it’s not too hot, you may consider sitting outside on their patio with beautiful views of the World Showcase Lagoon. 

You can’t go wrong with an evening meal here, as it’s another great dining spot with fantastic views of Harmonious! Surrounded by deep wood tones, from the floors to the tables and chairs, you’ll believe you’ve stepped foot inside a traditional English Pub. Warm gold lighting, etched glass windows, drapes and a ceiling full of character will make you feel like you’re in a small-town joint. 

You may even catch a cast member performing on their in-house keyboard. Home to the crowd favorite Fish and Chips you’ll find that and other traditional food items like Shepard’s Pie and Burgers and Mash on the Menu. 

Be sure to leave room for the Sticky Toffee Pudding. If you’ve found your way to the pub and are looking for a drink to try, check Pub Blends on the menu, like the “Black Velvet Imperial Pint”, a blend of half cider and half Guinness Stout.  Of course, there are loads of alcohol-free options on this menu as well! 

Chefs de France

  • Menu Pricing $15-$34.99 (adults) $10.95-$11.95 (children) 

 Cross over the bridge from England into France and you’ll come to Le Chefs De France. This restaurant is simply charming. Having had the chance to travel to France myself, I think Disney really nailed this one. 

The beautiful mosaic floor, tray ceilings, unique light fixtures and expansive green windows really make you feel like you’re wrapped up in a cozy café. If you love people watching settle into a seat by the window. 

You’ll find a full menu of traditional French cuisine here, and I like to think that Remy is back there coaching the chefs to make sure they are cooked to perfection. Palate-pleasing appetizers like Cassolette d’escargots de Bourgogne au beurre persillé (escargot) or Soupe à l’oignon gratinée (French Onion Soup) are  featured. 

If you’re looking for a hearty entrée, the Ratatouille or the Boef Bourguignon are sure to tickle your tastebuds. If you want to try a something a little different, you can opt for the prix fixe meal ($67.95) for your choice of one appetizer, entrée, and dessert. 

Also included is a choice of Chardonnay or Cabernet Sauvignon or one non-alcoholic beverage. I had the opportunity to try the prix fixe option and it was delightful, there was nothing left on any of my plates and to this day I still dream about that French onion soup – definitely the best one I’ve ever had!  

Space 220

  • Menu Pricing: Lunch $55 (adults) $29 (children) 
  • Dinner $79 (adults) $29 (children) 

Ready for a dining experience that’s out of this world? Look no further than Space 220. Epcot’s newer sit-down dining experience, which opened in 2021, has quickly become a top choice for many visitors! 

This completely immersive experience jets you up (literally) into outer space where you get to dine amongst the stars with a view crystal clear view of planet earth! The menu items are billed as American cuisine, made with fresh ingredients (plus they have some fun names). 

Plan on going hungry as both the lunch (2-course) and dinner (3-course) meals are prix fixed menus. 

Some of your first course options may include Starry Calamari, Blue Moon Cauliflower, or the Galaxy Grain Salad. Second course offerings include Galactic Salmon, the Centauri Burger, or The Supreme Chicken Breast and much more! This is another great option for parties that have different dining preferences since there are a lot of great protein choices and some vegetarian options as well. 

If you’ve got a sweet tooth, leave room after dinner for the Coconut Panna Cotta or Short Cake! Space 220 also has an extensive dessert cocktail menu (I love a good espresso martini) as well as a full cocktail, beer and wine list! This is a truly unique dining experience, and if you’re lucky enough to get a reservation it may be a little while before you come back down to earth. 

Via Napoli

  • Menu Pricing $15-$34.99 (adults) $10.50-$11.50 (children) 

Via Napoli is the perfect spot if you love simplicity and sharing food with your family, which also makes it a great option for budget friendly sit-down dining. Fun fact…Disney imports water from Pennsylvania because it closely resembles water in Naples, Italy, the birthplace of pizza, and they also import their flour from Naples. 

Add in the handmade mozzerella and you’ve got an authentic Italian pie. Via Napoli is lively inside, Italian music playing and the smells coming from the wood fired ovens is truly mouthwatering. This restaurant can get a little noisy, but truthfully that’s why I love it! The sounds of friends and families gathering to share a meal while enjoying their time at Epcot. 

Grab a seat at the outdoor patio and you have a clear view out into the piazza of the Italy pavilion! With a dozen different pizza options including the Quattro Formaggi (four cheese) and the Prosciutto e Melone (prosciutto & melon) or the simple Margherita (my personal favorite). 

Of course, like any good Italian eatery you’ll also find several pasta dishes, and entrees such as Chicken Parmesan or Branzino. Pair any of the above with something from their wine list and top it all off with a delectable dessert! (I suggest the tiramisu). Via Napoli will satisfy your pizza craving. 

Getting a Reservation

Learning about the best Epcot sit down restaurants is just half the battle.  The next step is discovering how to snag a reservation so you and your family can dine there. 

Well luckly, it’s pretty easy.  You can make your reservations through the My Disney Experience App or  Disney.com, 60 days in advance of your dining date. Disney sit down dining spots can get busy, and while you might luck out and find a spot while you’re there (it never hurts to check). I definitely recommend making reservations ahead of time to help you plan your days, especially if there is a place you and your party are really hoping to try!
