Flying Fish Cafe at Disney World’s Boardwalk
Flying Fish Cafe is an upscale restaurant located near the Boardwalk Resort at Disney World
next door to the old Kat Cora’s restaurant Kouzinna. (Kouzinna is no longer there which is a shame, it was quite good.)
Flying Fish is one of the more expensive places to dine at Disney World. Our bill for the five of us, including tip was about $170. I actually thought it would be over $200, so it wasn’t as expensive as I thought it would be.
It was a great place to take the kids. Although you will be dining there for a while, it’s not nearly as long as California Grill or Jiko. The kid meal prices ranged from $7 – $12, which is not bad at all. There is a slight dress code. I recommend collared shirts for boys and a sun dress for girls. You can tell that my kids are dressed pretty casual.
The inside of the restaurant is small, but it is really neat and different. There are flying fish hanging from the ceiling. A large bar wraps around the open kitchen. At the bar you can participate in the Chef’s Tasting Wine Dinner, a 5-course prix-fixe menu with wine and you can interact with the culinary team.

This was huge, my husband and I could have split this. I think next time we eat here we will split something and save $40. I did take the leftovers back to our hotel. This particular time we were staying off Disney property at Summer Bay Resort, so we had a full kitchen.

Flying Fish Cafe Desserts
The highlight of our dining experience here was dessert. I had read about Mickey’s Chocolate Puzzle dessert and all the reviews were spot on. Mickey’s Puzzle dessert is an awesome dessert for kids. It’s made of white chocolate pieces that your kids put together to make a picture of Mickey. Then they can paint the chocolate picture with sugar paints. It also comes with a cupcake.
