The service was good. Husband ordered the French Press coffee and LOVED it. I had the Big Kahuna which was way too much food for 1 person. The pancakes and sausage were my favorite. Wish I would have just gotten the pancake plate. Husband had the Samoan. Husband said it was good but onions could have been cooked a bit... More

Okay. Let me start out by saying that the food was amazing. Moca Loca was awesome. Now, the problem lay in the fact that we were asked how we wanted our meat. When we received them, the meat was all well done. We were told that the kitchen didn't cook the mean to order. Why ask us of the kitchen... More

Dinner on a Friday night, reserved in advance and immediately seated. Nice menu, portion size nice, the sushi was delicious. The setting is quite nice, even though it's pretty informal and right alongside the upstairs lobby of the Polynesian.

Got here early to start our day. Parking nearby at the transportation center and then a quick walk or monorail to the Polynesian Resort where this restaurant is located. Have eaten other meals here before but breakfast is our favorite. Excellent food and service, and a prime location from which to start your day at Disney

Three of us went for lunch; with quite a few empty tables, it appeared we were some of the final lunch customers before they shut until dinner. Even so, the service was pleasant but really slow. They have almost no vegetarian options so I opted for the only vegetarians sushi option. It was average. My companions opted for appetizers since... More

Haven't been there in years because it is always booked. We just happened to be in the Polynesian in the morning and noticed empty tables. So I asked the very pleasant hostess if she had a table for two and the answer was yes. The waitress, Julia was very pleasant and friendly. The food though was disappointing, except for the... More

Gotta admit, Tonga toast was kind of a let down; not life changing like watermelon lemonade, butterbeer, or the chicken and waffle sandwich. Service was okay, I think the server was overwhelmed. I'll come back again bc it's a fan favorite, but my first visit didn't blow me away.

Terrific place to eat. Service was wonderful. The food was incredible. Started off with Hawaiian bread withe a delicious butter. Our appetizers were Pot Stickers and Octopus salad (yummy) our main dishes were Salmon rolls and California Laura rolls, both terrific. Would highly recommend.

We weren't staying at the Polynesian resort (I wish we could afford to!), but visited on our last night in Orlando for a special meal to round off our holiday. We'd secured a late reservation (not sure you could get in without one), and took the bus from one of the parks to the resort (make sure you allow plenty... More

We had dinner at the Kona Cafe in the Polynesian Village Resort. Although we were not staying at the resort, it was easy to get there via the monorail. We had an excellent dinner. The salads we had were very fresh and had a great taste. My grilled pork was cooked just right and was nice a juicy. Service was... More
