The Disney Caribbean Beach Resort restaurants have changed dramatically in the past year. All four dining locations are new and (mostly) improved.
Get all of the details on the dining scene at Caribbean Beach in this post!
The most exciting addition to the Caribbean Beach dining is Sebastian’s Bistro.
It is a casual fine dining restaurant that requires 1 credit on the table service dining plan (get my Disney Dining Plan tips in this post).
It is located right by the pool and lobby at Old Port Royale and has nice views of the water. I liked the atmosphere a lot – upscale but laid back, perfect for the theme of the resort.
Right now it is open for dinner only starting at 5 pm and reservations are strongly recommended.
There is plenty of variety on the menu without it being overwhelming.
I find the prices to be reasonable for a table service restaurant at Disney World. Entrees are mostly in the $17-$25 range.
We started with some pull-part rolls ($12) with accompaniments. They were a nice start to the meal and we enjoyed the guava butter, but I think they were overpriced.
The conch fritters ($12) were fried to perfection. The only other place I’ve had them on Disney property is Olivia’s at Old Key West and they were just as good here.
I’m definitely more willing to pay this price for a specialty item and one with a hard-to-find ingredient like conch.
We tried lots of main dishes and honestly everything was great. Instead of an entree I had the Sebastian’s House salad ($9) and Arepa ($10) from the appetizer menu.
They were both spectacular, and I especially liked the corn pancake in the Arepa – much better than one I had a Food & Wine last year.
The slow-cooked pork shoulder ($25) and jerk chicken ($22) entrees both were generous portions.
I think you could share these entrees if you were light eaters or had appetizers first.
My daughter liked her kid’s meal which came with this adorable Mickey ice cream dessert.
We were very pleased with our meals and the white wine our server recommended. Sebastian’s is a wonderful option when you are staying at Caribbean Beach.
I don’t know that I’d recommend journeying here from another resort, but if you have time and a car to get around, I think you’ll enjoy a meal at Sebastian’s Bistro.
Caribbean Beach Resort Restaurants: Centertown Market
Centertown Market is the main quick service dining location for the resort. It is located right off of the lobby in Old Port Royale.
You order from this main counter (or use Mobile Order which is super convenient) and then pick food up at windows once it is ready.
There is also a grab-and-go section with a separate line. There you can get bakery items, drinks (including refillable mugs), and items found in the coolers such as pre-made sandwiches, fruit, etc.
The menu consists of tacos, pizza, create-your-own-bowls, salads, and burgers.
I had the Jerk chicken pizza and it was just ok.
The semi-sweet sauce was too much for me. I think I would have liked it minus the sauce.
This is a kid’s order of the jerk chicken bowl with brown rice and beans. Again, it was ok, but I think I liked it better than my daughter.
This incredible rose gold cupcake was the highlight of the meal – just look at that! Disney has stepped up it’s cupcake game recently even at resort food courts. It was ridiculously good.
There is plenty of seating both inside and out which is excellent. I liked this lovely turquoise room off to the side of the main dining room.
Overall we weren’t overly impressed with Centertown Market. There seemed to be some confusion with people ordering food and not knowing where to pick it up. Hopefully they will get this sorted out soon.
For along time the main complaint of people staying the far southern part of the resort was the lack of food options.
For a while Disney had a food truck down in Trinidad South, but they now have opened a small quick service dining location.
The lunch and dinner menu is limited but will do in a pinch. I expect this is the same food served at Centertown Market.
I tried the taco trio and they were underwhelming. I’ve had some of the best fish tacos ever at Disney World (thank you Cantina de San Angel in Epcot) and these were sub-par.
I liked the Plaintain and Yucca chips a LOT, though. They reminded me of Terra Chips and were a nice surprise.
My daughter had a below-average Disney World kid’s cheeseburger. The fruit side was excellent. I guess the side dishes are where Spyglass Grill excels.
There is a small seating area outside but out of the elements.
I wouldn’t go out of your way to eat at Spyglass Grill. Even if you are staying at Caribbean Beach, you are better off sticking with the main quick service restaurant which offers more choices.
If you are staying in Trinidad South (maybe for the Pirate Rooms) then by all means take advantage of the convenient quick service food.
Caribbean Beach Resort Restaurants: Banana Cabana
We grabbed a drink at the colorful Banana Cabana before we had dinner at Sebastian’s. I absolutely loved the decor and atmosphere here!
You can order some food here as well – chicken wings, burgers, and salads. I wouldn’t hesitate to grab a chair and have a meal here if I was spending the day at the pool.
I hope this post gave you an overview of what to expect from the Disney Caribbean Beach Resort restaurants. If you want more info about the resort, get my full Caribbean Beach review here.
