I am SO SO excited to share Citricos with you tonight! This signature restaurant is located at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and it has been ages since I’ve shared it with you. Since the last time, it has been beautifully updated with a whimsical Mary Poppins Returns theme and the menu has be revamped. Both are practically perfect in every way!
The dining room brings you into a fanciful garden scene that takes cues from the film’s animated sequence—with motifs of flowers, butterflies and more.
The dressmaker details are elegant and playful and I just couldn’t get enough of them! Part of the dining experience for me is the decor and Citricos is everything I can hope for in that regard!
A keen eye might even spot Mary’s hat and bag!
Honey and I have visited the Citricos Lounge a few times in the past year and it is also a delight! Reservations are not required and you can order from the full menu here. We’ve only come for drinks and I can report back that those are delicious!
In fact, one of my top three Disney cocktails is found here! Meet the Orange Blossom Martini.
The meal begins with a bread service. We chose the Strawberry Salad to start and it just might be the best salad I’ve had.
The menu—crafted by Chef Andres Mendoza—features Florida cuisine with a Mediterranean influence. We chose the Guava Barbecued Short Ribs and House Made Rigatoni. Both were absolute perfection. I had the short ribs and would never choose anything different!
We added on the Truffle Macaroni & Cheese and oh my word – this is a dish dreams are made of. It was unlike any mac and cheese I’ve ever had. I highly recommend this splurge!
We had no room left for dessert, but have enjoyed the chocolate torte on a past visit to the lounge. This was a dinner Whit and I enjoyed. We can’t wait to bring Honey and John back! The Grand Floridian is forever my favorite resort – and the food here is just one of the reasons.
