African
Vibrant spices, crackling wood-burning ovens and boutique South African wines transport you to the heart of Africa. Twin wood-burning ovens roar as subtly changing light mimics the warm red, orange and gold tones of an African sunset. Watch chefs prepare appetizers in the open show kitchen, and discover a delicious blend of traditional African, Indian and Mediterranean cuisine. Steak, chicken, seafood, vegan and vegetarian dishes are infused with a uniquely bold blend of tantalizing flavors and fragrant spices. Changing seasonally, the menu may include flavor bursting appetizers like imaginative brick oven-fired flatbreads and mouth-watering entrées such as oak-grilled filet mignon. The children’s menu features pizza, grilled chicken or steak, and market-fresh fish served with ancient grains and vegetables.

More of a place for adults and leave the young kids at home. Menu limited to very african themed choices and honestly, we cook so well ourselves, that it's hard to spend $50 per plate and not be critical - lol

The restaurant is nice in a very Disney way. The appetizers were both very good - some dips with naan and a nice elk flatbread. My entree was disappointing, the bison wasn’t cooked to the temperature I requested and the meat was tough and chewy. The other entree of short rib was adequate, nothing very special. Desserts were good. Prices were high, probably no surprise in a Disney resort. Wine prices also seemed a bit high to me, a Cabernet was $23 a glass. All in all, a nice atmosphere and good food but make careful choices.

Great atmosphere, one of our favorite at WDW. Or main server was knowledgeable and prepared for my wife's celiac questions. Made great suggestions. Food was great, very tasty with the usual great presentation. The gang service though was not quite up to the snuff. They miss timed bring accompanying wine courses. Some came after the course was eaten. Also they did not bring the tables plates for each course in unison. There was 5 or more minutes waiting for everyone to get their food. Not terribly busy.

The attendants are great, but the value is too high. The portions are small, and the prices are too high.

The ambiance was nice. It was around 9 PM on a Sunday and not too busy. Unfortunately, we our food took ~40 minutes to be delivered with no explanations. Luckily the food was tasty.
