Diner Reviews
  • "If I lived closer, I'd show up once a week or so...the food is excellent, the staff is great, and the Downtown Disney location is lots of fun...with a fireworks show every night at 9:25! Yippee!! Easily one of the best dining experiences my wife and I have had in a long time! I know I probably sound exuberant and cheerful and constantly complimentary, and possibly incapable of dishing out criticism when it is warranted..... not so. I would try to do descriptive justice to the meal we were served, but you really need to experience this for yourself."

  • "Dining on the second story balcony makes for great people watching especially during dinner time. The goat cheese stuffed pepper appetizer was yummy. I had the pasta with lamb Bolognese which was quite good. My husband had the chicken paella which was quite disappointing. The chicken wasn't cooked with the paella, instead a piece of fried chicken was placed on top of a cast iron pan of spicy rice with sausage bits. The chicken risotto with asparagus was quite tasteless. The chicken was not cooked with the risotto and looked boiled with grill marks. I had a french white wine that was tasty. For how pricy the menu items were, we had expected better."

  • "Celebrated my daughter's birthday at Catal. We had a perfect view for the firework show. Our server Tyler C. never disappoints, he was very attentive to all of our needs and is beyond exceptional. His recommendations were perfect and the executive chef Steve is amazing, he out did himself with all of our dishes, from the appetizers (bacon wrapped dates, stuffed chorizo filled squid, Spanish tortilla frites) to the entrees (lobster paella, spaghettini pasta, lamb shank, macaroni with truffles and BBQ ribs) not to mention the special desserts which was a sampling of everything. So incredibly tasty my family felt very special and my daughter enjoyed her birthday."

  • "Catal Restaurant is an excellent restaurant to take someone out for a romantic dinner. It's great for any special occasion with it's scenic view, and great for outdoor dining for groups too! Especially in the evening with Disneyland beautiful fireworks and the music in Down Town Disney! Food is delicious! The beef melts in your mouth and the bread pudding to die for. I give it 5 stars!"

  • "We had dinner at Catal and were generally pleased. The menu has some really great things, but the appetizer list is pretty exotic which can make it hard for less adventurous eaters to find an appetizer. We tried the manchego salad and the corn soup. The soup was a daily special and was quite good. The manchego salad was fine. For entrees we tried the baby back ribs and the prime rib. The baby back ribs were excellent. They were basted with a tasty peanut sauce. The prime rib was tasty but VERY fatty. More than one-third of the prime rib was fat -- both on the outside as you would expect, but also in the middle of the piece of meat. Other than that, the meal was good. The view of Downtown Disney from the restaurant is very nice."

  • "It was a romantic evening with my boyfriend. Made reservations in the morning for 8pm. We were seated immediately and had a nice spot on the balcony. The service was nice but the real beauty was in the food and ambience. It's just romantic being on top of Downtown Disney. We ordered the stuffed calamari which was delicious with the chimichurri sauce. Almost dipped our bread in this sauce. We also ordered the lamb Bolognese and chicken paella. The lamb Bolognese was delicious and melted in your mouth. The chicken was cooked to perfection. All in all. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion or romantic dinner."

  • "My three friends and I had dinner at Catal to celebrate a birthday and an engagement at Disneyland just that morning!! First of all, our waiter was beyond amazing! We were seated inside, but requested a table outside & reseated just minutes later when a table was clear. The Mountain Door Malbec was delicious, and everyone agreed the Lamb Bolognese is life changing!! They view and atmosphere were better than we could have imagined. We had the best view of Disneyland's fireworks and completely enjoyed ourselves. Best dining experience ever!"

  • "First of all, the service was above expectations. Tyler C made the experience great. The drinks were very good, the appetizers were very good (bacon wrapped dates and papas bravas) - although the potatoes lacked salt. The salads were very good (wedge and Caesar). The entrees, well, they was only okay. The lobster paella was dry, the lobster was overcooked, and the rice was slightly undercooked. The seasoning was too lite. The hangar steak was "okay" - to much fat, and undercooked - we chose not to send it back. Everything needed salt. We had a great evening, but for the price, not the greatest value. Will we be back? That's a definite maybe."

  • "First visit, was a little confused as to which menu went to which restaurant, but we were pleased with the fine dining experience.We were seated on the upstairs patio/balcony and it was nice to be above the bustle of the Downtown Disney clientele. I had "market fish" which was halibut, and it was prepared well. Our party include a "'tween" who thought his hamburger was "the best ever" (hardly a connoisseur, but definitely a happy customer!). Our waiter, Peter, was exceptional. We shall try it again."

  • "We had a great dinner here tonight. They also provided a gluten free menu for my daughter which made her feel very special. My son has a nut allergy and the manager personally brought his meal to the table to make sure that it was delivered properly."

  • "We sat outside, in the balcony, overlooking the crowds of downtown Disney. Food was excellent. Not that many tapas choices. For main I had the salmon which was quite good (with bean and broccoli rabe under). My husband had the chicken and the fideaux. He's the raving about the tenderness of the chicken. Service was quite good also. "

  • "Let's face it, Disneyland doesn't have food for foodies. This place hit the spot and my girlfriend was very pleased. The only complaint I had was that service was on the slow side. It took us about 15 minutes to get seated and we had a reservation. When you are at Disneyland (and all restaurants in Downtown Disney should feel that they ARE in Disneyland) a restaurant should give high priority to it's patrons time. Time is limited, and those park tickets are expensive. That being said though, the food was perfect. The service was perfectly accurate and pleasant, and the atmosphere was nice. Try the Risotto!"

  • "Saw reviews of this online and decided to try it. Made a reservation for prime time Friday night - got a balcony table- overlooking the sights and sounds of DD, but being up and away from it all was excellent. Varied menu, excellent service, good wine. Good night. Not cheap, but I have also seen worse. "

  • "The menu is poor if you sit in the Resturant outside the bar in downtown Disney is a diffrent menu and you cN find a lot but not inside the Resturant same kitchen totally diffrent items, very expensive and too small dishes. The waitress think you a tourist so they don't really care and even with reservation you end up waiting. We were still ungy with a large bill."

  • "We had never been to Catal before, and it was a perfect place to go for a special occasion. Being in Downtown Disney was also special. our servers were great. the food was very good. sitting out on the patio was very nice - especially on a warm evening. you can also see the fireworks from disneyland out on the patio. inside the restaurant was a cold w the air conditioning. you need to have reservations especially for patio. we brought a bottle of champange and wine and they did not charge a corkage fee for special occasions. we were very satisfied with our evening!

  • "This is one of the few adult oriented restaurants in Disney Downtown."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "Perhaps the strategy for serving lousy food is to serve it so quick that diners won't notice how bad it is. This was my experience at Catal. Appetizers were barely placed on the table when entrees appeared from the kitchen. Server was absolutely aloof to this made room on our table so that we could now have our entire meal served in 20 minutes. Entree of diver scallops was a greasy confused mess. Skip this place. "

  • "Given that we were on a vacation in Disneyland this was a good place to meet an old time friend for dinner. The server was very good and the food was serviceable. The hostess both in the restaurant and at the bar have the typical SoCal attitude and served to dampen the overall experience. Luckily our interaction with both of these women was short but was negative enough to leave a lasting if negative impression. "

We were seated in a very nice side dining area with a great view overlooking Downtown Disney. Jacqueline our server was very friendly, attentive and helpful. The sea-bass special and diver scallops were cooked just right and very good. Will definitely be back."

  • "We had heard great things about this restaurant and were excited to try it out while in town. The service was very poor with very rude hostess and inattentive servers. The only reason this isn't one star is because the manager was friendly when we had to send back the food for being burnt. Although I ended up eating after the rest of my party because of this nothing was comped and no discount given. The food was mediocre at best and very over priced. Pallea wasn't authentic or that tasty and the prime rib was tough. Nice location in downtown Disney though! "

  • "A group of 6 of us had a birthday dinner there for a 19 year old and it turned out to be great. We sat on the patio (their suggestion) and the atmosphere out there was fun and vibrant. Out waitress was charming and upbeat, and the food and wine choices were amazing. Some of us are locals so we are definitely going back soon to taste the other menu items that we couldn't in this visit. "

  • "One might expect a restaurant in downtown Disney to be a typical chain store restaurant, like a BJ or an Olive Garden. However, this place is a gem. I must commend Disney on their customer service. The waitstaff here was incredibly polite, helpful, and energetic. We had a number of different servers check in on us throughout our meal. The food, to my unsophisticated taste buds, was delicious. I admit I have not had the pleasure of traveling to Spain yet, so I actually am not very versed in Spanish food. I love tapas-- all their small plates had small portions. Perfect for me, but if you're a hearty eater you may want to order more. Bacon wrapped dates are delicious here-- one of the better places for it. Warning- kids. Loud kids. "

  • "Our server was very good. The host gave us a menu that was labeled "Gluten Free." When I started ordering from that menu, my waitress asked "Can I see your menu?" She took a look at it and said "This is not. Gluten Free. It says Gluten Free, but this is the regular menu. I will go and get you the correct menu!" I really appreciated that. I loved that she knows both menus so well, that when she heard what I was ordering, she stopped me mid sentence and corrected the situation. I absolutely cannot have gluten! Most places I go to do not know the difference and would of given me food with gluten in it. The food was out of this world. So fresh and so good! Everyone should go! If it's nice outside, request to sit on the patio!"
