Dinner at Disney Dream’s Enchanted Garden

UGbanner2017_DisneyCruiseline

Enchanted Garden is a stylish restaurant on board the Disney Dream. The decorations of the restaurant are inspired by the Versailles gardens of France. Accentuated with lush greenery and a cascading fountain adorned by a 7-foot-tall Mickey Mouse, it is a very peaceful setting for a meal. The glass light fixtures change colors while the ceiling transitions from daytime to sunset and onward to a star-filled night sky. The casual elegance of the restaurant is very soothing. The seating has a certain airiness, and we really like the semicircular booths that line the center aisle.

The décor at Enchanted Garden is great, but what about the food?

The menu doesn’t necessarily cater to a general taste bud. It is a far cry from pub fare, but there is always a great roasted chicken, pork tenderloin medallions, or a traditional beef dish such as Prime Rib among the offerings. The portions are on the small side; however, this is a Disney Cruise where guests can order as many dishes as they like throughout any meal. You can even ask for a dish that is on the menu of any of the ship’s restaurants that night. So, there’s no need to be worried about ‘whats for dinner’ because there will always be a solution. The menu also offers plenty of options for vegetarians.

Here are our favorite Enchanted Garden appetizers, main courses, and desserts!

The North Atlantic Lobster Ravioli appetizer served with roasted garlic and sweet basil in a light tomato broth is absolutely delicious.

Next, we suggest the Ahi Tuna and Avocado Tower, also an appetizer, which comes with crisp noodles and wasabi dressing. It is tempting to ask the waiter to just bring the same dish once more.

Time for a main course. Try the Caramelized Sea Scallops, served with roasted asparagus, sun-dried tomatoes, and pearl pasta, garnished with caramelized leeks and a veal jus reduction. The scallops are cooked to perfection, which is no easy task.

For the vegetarian, we recommend the Glazed Portobello mushrooms. The mushrooms are served with brown lentils, a parsley sauce, and a sun-dried tomato cream. The combination is perfect, and the dish actually tastes like meat!

No dinner would be complete without dessert, and the Trio of Esterhazy Cake, Strawberry Cheesecake, and Sacher Torte is an absolute must.

Also consider ordering Warm Sticky Date Pudding—served with butterscotch sauce, vanilla ice cream, and phyllo crunch. This dish definitely gets a thumbs-up!

The Enchanted Garden is open for breakfast, lunch (on select days), and two dinner seatings, usually around 5:45 and 8:15 p.m.  Have you eaten at Enchanted Garden? Did you enjoy your meal? We would love to hear from you.
