Cat Cora's Kouzzina at Disney's BoardWalk

Nothing new here except this sign. Cat Cora's Kouzzina at Disney's BoardWalk

Last week during our annual family Disney vacation in Orlando, we were excited to dine at Cat Cora’s new restaurant at Disney’s BoardWalk, Kouzzina. However,  I  am sorry to report, it was a disappointment.

As we were seated at our table and as I looked around, I felt like the only thing different from its predecessor, Spoodles, was nothing more than the sign on the front door and the name on the menu. Damn it, Janet.

After I perused the menu, I continued to study the “new” restaurant and came to the conclusion, absolutely NOTHING was new and there was absolutely no visible presence of Cat Cora other than the sun-faded photo of her and Mickey outside on the sandwich board street sign.

It’s the same Mediterranean fare, it’s the same decor, for Pete’s sake it’s the same furniture and silverware — NOTHING has changed. I was pissed. We could have gone to one of our other favorite restaurants. At this point, the food — and wine — best be good.

Good news first:  the general concensus of our table of eight was a positive review of both meal and spirits. Bad news next: I did not like mine. Period. I ordered a white Greek wine which was way too sweet and my entree, the Fisherman’s Stew, did not mention it came in a diablo sauce. Did I mention I HATE diablo sauce? UGH.

Please note, I did not request a new choice of wine or send my meal back, that’s not how I roll.  I gave my wine to another family member and wiped the wretched sauce off each piece of seafood as I went along.

Needless to say, my step-father, whose birthday we were celebrating and my brother and sister-in-law, whose anniversary was that week, enjoyed their meals. And that’s really all that mattered to me.

Cuisine: Mediterranean
Open for Breakfast + Dinner
Price Range: $15 to $35.99

Rating: Go somewhere else.

    Sorry to hear the dinner was less than stellar! We love Kouzzina every time we go and are glad for the change from Spoodles. Finally some decent Greek food in Disney! And the whole restaurant is going to close for refurbishment I believe in the next few weeks, most likely to get rid of the remains of the Spoodles look. ;)

      Hi Jenn!
      Thanks for your comment!

      Well, like I said, my family enjoyed their meals. LOL.

      No way — I didn’t realize it’s going to be refurbished! I am definitely interested to see the outcome, however, I don’t know if I could stomach another visit.

      Thanks for stopping by!
