The food and service were both good, not great. My biggest disappoint was that they were unable to make a virgin margarita for my pregnant wife, which seems extremely bizarre / silly for a Restuarant in a resort that’s catering to thousands of families every day.

Service was great and the atmosphere was pretty cool! The food was good as well. I got the mushroom torta as a salad with tortilla soft shells on the side. It was delicious! I also recommend getting the chips and guac. :)

The food was extremely, extremely overpriced for the portions and they even charge for refills on coke products . The food at Taco Bell taste better. I never really give negative reviews but this restaurant needs to make major changes for it to be located in Disney Springs. The food that was served would be better attainable at a food truck. The food was salty and a little dry and they charge for chips that majority of restaurants give you for free, which is tacky and cheap.

I don’t care how good a restaurant is if I have to walk more than 100 feet to get in.it just isn’t worth the effort.

Food quality was fair at best, chicken tacos was more like chicken Alfredo, and it was cold. The other entrees party of 7 were just ok. The enchiladas were cold, and not flavorful. The pork belly was not crispy like what I have had in the past. The portion sizes were chincy. The service was good.

Even for Disney, food was over priced, over seasoned and a poor value. No kid friendly menu. Better options at Disney Spring and most likely will not make a return visit.

Visiting Disney World for the week. Saw Frontera on open table and had to come try it out. Loved the whole ambience. Very friendly and helpful staff. The margaritas are delicious! We started off with the chicken flautas as an appetizer... out of this world! Highly recommend this! I had the red sauce enchiladas... also delicious! My son had the pork belly tacos. Excellent!!! Our waiter was very helpful and attentive. Great time and delicious food... can’t go wrong!

The atmosphere and location was terrific , the vibe was good. However the food was terrible. Unfortunately it was so bad we could not eat it, we told the waitress and the mangaer made some ridiculous excuse that the meat was cut the wrong way and discounted our food 20%, whatever I would never go back, lots of better choices available in Orlando.

We were in Disney World and had to enjoy another Rick Bayless dining adventure. We started with a top shelf margarita which quenched our ravenous thirst. Next chips and salsa- our guilty pleasure. I chose the Chicken Enchiladas which were light with a bit of a zip. My husband had the Carne Asada Tacos. Fresh handmade tortillas cradled the steak. Steak was a bit chewy for my taste but my husband devoured them! We finished our meal with a Quatro de Leche Cake- a perfect not to sweet creamy dessert.

Beautiful place but the food was only okay and a bit pricy at $21 for tacos. The kids meal was embarrassing, my 7 year old had cheese quesadillas that had almost no cheese. It was basically 2 soft flour tacos with a little cheese holding them together. We had to go get her something to eat when we left.

Honestly, the food was great and the value was what you should expect from Disney Springs. Tonight was a terrible disappointment however as there was a shard of metal in one of our dishes, looked like a sliver of metal from a can/can opener on which I cut my gum. Upon telling our waiter, he just shrugged and said sorry. That’s it! Nothing more and of course being a business dinner I left it at that but I can’t believe the disregard for such a serious event.

Frontera Cucina was very welcoming and efficient. The pork dish I had was the best Mexican pork dish I have ever had. My wife's chicken tacos were fairly average. We have been to Frontera Cucina several time and will be back in the future.

We frequently visit this restaurant and it is one of our favorites. However, this visit the timing of the food arriving at our table was unsatisfactory. We did complain to the waiter and they did offer a discount from the check total. However, I would rather have had all the food arrive together and at the proper time.
