Find out why Flying Fish Cafe should be at the top of your list of restaurants to visit at Disney World and see which dessert is one of the best at Disney!
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.
Flying Fish Cafe Dress Code
There is a slight dress code. I recommend collared shirts for boys and a sundress for girls.
The minimum dress code requirements:
Men must wear khakis, slacks or dress shorts and collared shirts. Jeans may be worn if in good condition. Sport coats are optional.
Women must wear Capri pants, skirts, dresses or dress shorts. Jeans may be worn if in good condition.
Not permitted are tank tops, flip-flops, swimsuits, swimsuit cover-ups, hats for gentlemen, cut-offs, torn clothing and t-shirts with offensive language and/or graphics.
Inside Flying Fish
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 is the best drink I’ve ever had at Disney World! And at this point, I have had my fair share of Disney cocktails!

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.
