A Look Around Toledo
Toledo sits at the very top of the Gran Destino tower at Coronado Springs. The views here I will say are stunning. We always rave about how awesome the views are from the California Grill but I will say I think this one takes the cake. Here you get nearly 360 degree sweeping views of both views of Epcot and Hollywood Studios. We were seated with a direct view into Star Wars Land at Hollywood Studios.
This is a look at the bar located in the middle of the restaurant. The nice thing about this restaurat is the giant floor to ceiling windows make it so no matter where you sit you have a great view. Though I will admit an outer table right against the window is the best place to be seated. Especially if you are trying to catch the fireworks at Epcot or Hollywood Studios a window seat will be extra helpful.
The food here is all Spanish cusine which fit in perfectly with the theming of the rest of the hotel. Don’t be afraid of the menu as it does seem overwhelming at first with three sections you can flip through.
The beverages portion of the menu is pretty straightforward. The drinks on the menu do inlcude both alcoholic and non alcoholic options.
The tapas section of the menu features all small plate items. When you open the Tapas menu you will find it divided into three sections Pintxos (skewers), Cazuelas (classic dishes), and House Boards (charcuterie boards).
If you have any questions we found our waiter was SUPER helpful. He broke everything down was happy to offer suggestions and all around fantastic.
A Look at Toledo Dishes
The following is a couple of the dishes on their menu we have gotten to taste test.
I was so optimistic for these Savory Churros but I just didn’t love it. In fact this dish was a pass from just about the whole table. These traditional churros are dusted with chorizo, oregano, romesco, and lemon. The outer coating did have a bit of kick but overall was too spicey. Don’t think this is your ordinary theme park churro, it’s totally different.
The ‘Pan con Tomate’ Tomato Bread is the best thing I ate all night. I highly recommend getting this appetizer from Toledo. It consists of grilled bread, crushed tomato, olive oil, and garlic. It’s a very basic dish but a perfect pairing to the whole meal.
In the effort of getting something different I went with the Scallops. These scallops are topped with fava hummus, olives, harissa vinaigrette, roasted carrots, yogurt powder. The scallops were nicely seared, perfectly cooked! I really enjoyed the hummus dipping sauce as well I had never had this combo before.
This is the Manhattan Filet on the menu. Despite the title, be warned this is not your classic Filet Mignon. It’s actually more like a NY Strip Steak cooked to be like a filet and topped with olive oil-potato purée, grilled onions, dates, sherry vinaigrette. This dish was very good and the mashed potatoes were a perfect pairing, very creamy and smooth.
The Red Wine-braised Chicken includes grapes, sherry vinegar, roasted tomato ‘bomba’ rice. The chicken was very tender and full of flavor. The potato chips on top added a nice crispy topping to the whole dish.
The Hanger Steak was a win. We actually liked this over the other steak we sampled that night the Manhattan Filet. A perfect mix of the classic steak and potatoes.
Toledo – Tapas, Steak, & Seafood Recommendation
Overall, we enjoyed our expereince at Toledo. I wasn’t blown away by the food, but I think I didn’t order the best thing for my taste off the menu. The service and the atmosphere here was what made the whole experience.
Extra Tips – for some of the best views here at Toledo make sure to take a trip to the bathroom. Even the restrooms had giant windows with stunning theme park views. Want to come back to catch some amazing views but not necessarily commit to a whole meal. Right across the hall from the entrance of Toledo is the Dahlia Lounge. This lounge has the same stunning views!

I have been visiting the parks annually since my parents first brought me at just a year old. Recently I was able to fulfill my life long dream of being a Florida local and moved from the wintery Northeast to the sunshine and fun of central Florida. Now I am hoping to share my Disney knowledge with you so you can have the best vacation possible!
