Good food and service, but very noisy due to the jackhammer at the construction site next door. We arrived while the workers were at lunch, but the noise started shortly thereafter. It turned a great experience into a fair one. I recommend indoor dining during the construction. I wish they had warned us.

We had a wonderful dinner date experience here—so much so that we came back the following day for lunch. The servers were friendly and on top of everything. We sat on the balcony where there were lights and a nice view of downtown disney. We would highly recommend this to anyone wanting a place to eat for any occasion such as a birthday dinner to a place to come sit down in the afternoon to take a break from Disneyland and have an extremely yummy meal!

Mediocre flavors, quality and portion size. They do not provide any kind of complimentary table bread nor complimentary birthday dessert. As a local, I would likely not eat here again. This was disappointing for a Patina Group restaurant.

The menu is always great here but, for Thanksgiving, they offered a traditional prix fix menu that was superb.

After spending a full day at Disneyland, Catal Restaurant was a wonderful change of pace. Everyone in our group ending up choosing some type of seafood entree (scallops, fish of the day, and paella) which were all delicious . We enjoyed the meal at the leisurely while catching up on family news. Overall, a positive experience.

We stopped by for a quick dinner before entering Disneyland Park. We were seated quickly and ordered quickly, but it took a while for the food to come out (probably cooking time for the paella). The food was really good, the Suckling Pig Paella was super tender and tasty with the tomatillo jam, the bacon mac & cheese was wonderfully rich, and the tortilla soup was spicy. The DVC member discount was nice, too!

Catal was lovely ... the food and wine were amazing .... everything our group got was gushed over. I have to say however, $9.50 for a bud light is ridiculous. (No, we didn't get one, but still ... Really?!) which may lend to the thought that I did feel dishes were slightly overpriced ... by $5-10-ish generally -- Even for Disney!

This restaurant is right in the middle of Downtown Disney. We arrived early for Happy Hour. Great prices on drinks and apps. Had a great seat on balcony overlooking the area. We stayed for dinner and it was also very good. It appeared they were short on staffing, but we had the time to enjoy and relax

This place does everything right. Great food, attentive service, nice views of downtown Disney from the second story windows, sometimes you can even catch a glimpse of the fireworks at dinner. We have eaten here probably a dozen times after our visits to the Disney parks and it's always a perfect ending to the day.

Catal is a great spot for dinner. Luckily the evening was cooling down and we were able to enjoy the refreshing sangria while dining al fresco. The server was very friendly. The food was phenomenal! I split a salad, which turned out to be just right, and we both had different main courses. The lobster paella was perfect.

The chilaqules $14 were very pricey in comparison to the portion size. Plenty of chips but all the good stuff was hardly present. Had a mimosa, small pour $9. Keep in mind the location when looking at the prices. Went Sunday morning at 9:45am. Great ambiance, I’d try again and maybe order a more fool proof option and a cocktail or Beer

My wife and I came here last year for our wedding dinner and the food was amazing! And the service was great. This year for our 1 year anniversary we decided to come back and have a great dinner again. When we arrived it was pretty packed which is fine I understand no problems there but when we ordered our food it tasted a lot different we ordered the same food as last time but everything we got was very bland and the portion of our calimarie was smaller and our prime rib was very salty! At one point I had to spit it out because I was crunching down on a lot of salt! And the meat was very tough to chew! And was even hard to cut with a knife Our bacon macaroni had no flavor and there was very little bacon. Unfortunately we did not finish our meal and we just packed it up to go but ended up throwing it away the next day because we did not like it at all. I’m not sure if the food was rushed out because it was so packed or if the quality of the meat was cheaper than last year but sadly we will not be returning to Catal next year

It was "ok"....

I won't oversell it. The location is amazing...

Arrived for a special dinner and the waiter was as snooty as a Nordstrom shoe salesman- seriously?

Took forever to welcome us - thank goodness we went to Tiki Bar for a libation- or we would have died.



Best part- they ran out of bread. Seriously...even Coco's can bake some on the fly.

The oxtail was more of an app. The waiter tried to be cool and memorize the order- but missed the sides. Use a pen.

Overall, meh.

Hit Napoli. Or anywhere else.

Catal is the hidden gem in Downtown Disney, great food, reasonable pricing, excellent service all things not expected in such a commercial tourist zone. Definitely a repeat restaurant and and an excellent way to relax with a good meal after the hectic day of running around Disneyland/California Adventure. Sitting on the balcony gives you a birds eye view of the people walking around Downtown Disney, but inside it is quiet and more relaxed where a conversation is easily held. The wine list is very well put together and the policy of "no corkage fee" is outstanding, so bring something unusual if you're so inclined. Highly recommended along with reservations, and don't forget to validate for parking since Downtown Disney now charges for parking.
