Coral Reef Dining Review

Coral Reef Dining Review

Did you know there is a restaurant tucked inside the Living Seas at Epcot? That’s right you can dine inside a giant fish tank, how many people get to say that? You can find the entrance to the far right of the entrance for the Seas with Nemo and Friends. It’s truly a unique experience here, unfortunately, the last couple of trips to dine here have been less than great of the food and service front. Let’s take a look at our full Coral Reef dining review.

A Tour Around the Coral Reef

A look at the inside of Coral Reef restaurant in Epcot.

When you first enter the restaurant on your way to check in be sure to check out the mosaics and lighting.

Seating inside Coral Reef Epcot

The inside of the Coral Reef all the tables are tiered so everyone gets a fantastic view of the wall of fish. These are actually the same tanks you see inside the Living Sea. It’s a really really big tank as you can see.

Dishes from Coral Reef

Here is a look at the dishes we tried from our dinner at Coral Reef.

Bread Coral Reef


Oven Roasted Chicken Breast

I opted for the chicken. It was the Oven-roasted Herb Chicken Breast and I swapped out the risotto for the bacon mashed potatoes. It was a good pairing. Potatoes had

Braised Beef Short Ribs Coral Reef


Steak Coral Reef

I think you can tell by the picture that this dish didn’t go over well. The steak came out and just looked like it was rubberized in a microwave. It was ordered medium but this thin cut of steak was more than well done. They send it back to the kitchen but it returned the exact same way at that point since everyone else at the table had finished it wasn’t worth it to try again.
