Be Our Guest

Be Our Guest is a new Beauty and the Beast themed restaurant in Magic Kingdom in Disney World. There are three large rooms that are all themed to look like the Beast’s castle. The theme of the food is French, with the lunch menu having more of an Americanized twist.

During lunch time you order your meals at a kiosk and then sit down and someone will bring your food out to you. Be Our Guest is a full service restaurant in the evening.

Be Our Guest

The ballroom we sat in was beautiful. It had large chandeliers, big wooden tables, and fake windows that showed snow falling outside. This is definitely a visually appealing restaurant and it is worth it just to come here to walk around.

French Onion Soup

The french onion soup ($4.99) was spilling over with warm melty cheese. I didn’t try any of this one, but my Mom said it was nicely seasoned and the cheese was good.

Potato Leek Soup

I was surprised by how much I liked the potato leek soup ($4.49). Sometimes potato soup is too starchy, but this had a velvety smooth texture. Even though the soup was creamy, it wasn’t too rich and heavy.

Grilled Steak Sandwich

All of my family members got the grilled steak sandwich with fries ($11.99) and they said it was good, but not great.

They have a special French loaf where they bake garlic butter right into the bread. The steak was moist for being pretty well cooked. If you only like rare steak you may not like this sandwich.

Tuna Niçoise Salad

I ordered the tuna niçoise salad ($13.49). It was pretty and much better than I was expecting it to be. The tuna was seared on the outside and had a pink rare centre. It was tender and it is nice to see Disney stepping it up with a good seafood option at this park.

The salad was made up of  mixed greens, olives, red peppers, tomatoes, green beans, and potatoes. All of the vegetables were served chilled and they were evenly proportioned so that one flavour didn’t dominate the rest. There was also a hard poached egg on the salad, which was a nice touch.

It was served with what I think was a champagne vinaigrette (the menu didn’t say what the dressing was so this is only my guess). The dressing was tart, light, and a bit acidic. It was flavourful while being light and refreshing.

This salad was a perfect light lunch for the blazing Florida heat and something I would order again.

Chocolate Cream Puff

The chocolate cream puff ($2.99) is filled with a chocolate mousse and topped with whipped cream. My family members split it and they said it had a rich chocolate flavour.

Lemon Meringue Cupcake

The lemon meringue cupcake ($2.99) was made with vanilla sponge cake, lemon custard filling, and topped with flamed meringue icing. It was delicate and pretty looking. The white cake inside was moist and it had a strong lemon flavour.

Before we got here, I had low expectations for Be Our Guest, but everything impressed me. It has the most intricate and special ambiance out of all the restaurants in Magic Kingdom. If you like the Beauty and the Beast movie you will especially love it here. The food was good and it is a nice change from the bland junk food that fills the rest of the park. Just be sure to get here early because people line up out the door to eat here.

Recommendation:

Yes, for a great lunch and unique dining experience.
