The dragon burger was delicious and the salmon was way better than expected. Food was totally worth it.

Decent food for a theme park restaurant, and good mixed drinks. A little short on entree selections, but the dragon burger was quite good.

The breakfast buffet was included with the reservation. The hotel is currently struggling to hire staff and this is noticeable in all aspects of the experience at the castle hotel including the breakfast. Even when it’s free to hotel guests it is not worth it.

Lego decor is cute, so kids might like it but their food is terrible.

We went to the Dragon's Den for their free breakfast buffet with our stay at the Legoland castle hotel. The food was ok. I thought the eggs were a bit bland and the bacon was super thin. I did enjoy the fresh fruit that they offered.

We had Burgers for lunch, New York Steak for dinner and the following morning a complimentary breakfast, since we were hotel guests. To our surprise food was delicious! 5 stars! Def would recommend eating at this location when in Legoland.

Hostess seated us in area where server was on break. Waited 15 minutes after being seated before flagging down a bus boy and asking what happened to our server

We are staying at the Castle Hotel and are a vegan family. The chef was really nice to explain what was available that was vegan friendly and was kind enough to make us buckwheat pancakes & sautéed veggies. But ultimately, it’s just disappointing when there are so many great vegan options and so many very easy vegan recipes for the menu to still be so limiting for people who cannot consume animal products for health or ethical reasons. Points for the chef for trying but as an establishment that we pay thousands of dollars to, I expect better.

It is a shame you do not honor the guests who are in the California Hotel at Legoland.
So we had to pay for breakfast when we’re staying at the other Legoland hotel.

Omelette bar not available. Yesterday, it was. Should have options to add veggies other than just cheese. Eggs on bar with bacon were not good. Potatoes with peppers were not good. Very greasy and very few peppers. Pancakes and waffles were pre made and cold. Heat lamp didn't do the trick! Very poor breakfast!!!

Would recommend lunch or dinner. Great food choices and quality for those meals.

Excellent for kids and made us feel safe during COVID. Their food came quickly and they enabled us to sit on the patio and watch the kids on the playground and the hourly show while we ate.

food nothing special, long waiting and not charming service. We booked a table ( via Opentable as requested at the lobby) to find out that we still have to wait in line ( a long one, 1 hr wait!) for breakfast and wait over 20 mins for a table to be ready ( while you can see several table available). I tried to order a beer: my first 3 request were on the menu but not available/sold out. When I asked why I have to wait even with a reservation They said that we do not have a "reservation" but they require us to "reserve a table" in order to plan how many people to serve and for covid safety purpose. I would be ok with the Covid safety but indeed the area and the line was the opposite of a safe environment: very poor flow management, no social distance and very very crowded space.

Breakfast came with the vacation package so I’m not sure how much it usually is. They have ready made waffles, pancakes, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, and tater tots. It reminded me of middle school cafeteria food. It’s good for kids if you’re looking for something quick.

Be sure to make a reservation since there aren’t many other options around.

They seemed understaffed. Our server only took our order and didnt see her until we were done eating and needed the check. Food was not bad. I had the New York steak and wife had the salmon and it was better than expected. Would not recommend unless the service improves.

The wait was long for having a reservation. Then they were going to sit us at 2 separate tables for a party of 6. Was not great but our server Luis made up for everything. He was personal and informative, kept us informed of timing - even though the entrees all came out at different times. Luis was fantastic!!!!

We had an early dinner so the restaurant was nearly empty. But the food was very tasty and the staff was very nice.

The following morning we had an early breakfast and it was also pretty good. The eggs left a lot to be desired, but the sausage gravy and the bacon were good. They also had fresh fruit and yogurt available.

Why make reservations when walk ins were seated before we were? We had reservations (party of 4) and watched a party of 7 and party of 4 get seated who did not have reservations while we waited.... Then we were sat in the same area as the party of 7, double seating the server who was horribly SLOW. Service was HORRIBLE and slow about eveything. We asked for more water (2).... took 15 mins and she only brought one. We waited 10 minutes before being greeted at the table. 2 sodas and 2 waters took 15 mins to receive. Food was decent but slow coming out. In a facility for children I thought service would be a bit faster and more accommodating to children. Did I mention how horrible and SLOW server was? Do yourself and your sanity a favor DO NOT eat here if you or your kids are hungry. SLOW HORRIBLE service. All the reviews about the same are true..... and seems they don't care as these reviews have been reported similarly for YEARS. I do not recommend!!

Trying to get a reservation was awful, no one should have to wait 2-3 hours. As a result we ordered room service and it was totally wrong!

It was the worst experience at Legoland!
