Summary

Long a mainstay of the Walt Disney World fine dining roster, Flying Fish impresses with both upscale food and attentive service. The kitchen can sometimes force a slower-paced meal here, even after reopening following an extensive refurbishment several months ago, but the food is always worth the wait. Enjoy a fancy night out on the BoardWalk with an aperitif at neighboring AbracadaBar before settling in to the Flying Fish dining experience.

Setting and Atmosphere

Situated at the heart of the BoardWalk, Flying Fish takes diners under the sea for an upscale modern seafood dinner enveloped by classy deep blue and silver-rich restaurant décor. The open kitchen and showcase bar entertain guests seated near the front of the bustling restaurant, with diners enjoying a more muted experience in the rear of the main dining room.

House Specialties

Maine lobster pasta with golden tomato sauce shines on the seafood-dominant menu, though landlubbers will be perfectly content with the wagyu filet mignon. Soup and salad, rotating frequently throughout every season, are particularly solid ways to start any meal here, with both highlighting the freshest produce Florida has to offer. For more adventurous diners, the octopus and sea bass “paella” will hit all the high notes. Adroit bartenders craft specialty cocktails that pair with most meals, while a strong wine program compliments every dish from start to finish. Complete your meal at Flying Fish with the visually-striking and delicious Florida Reef dessert or the always-competent chef’s selection of artisanal cheeses.

Other Recommendations

House fish specials are different every day, and are accompanied by the freshest seasonal vegetables you can find at Walt Disney World. Kurobuta pork belly with a shirred quail egg impresses as an appetizer, and plancha-seared Hokkaido scallops are sure to satisfy. If you’re in search of a wider-reaching tasting menu, take advantage of the prix fixe Chef’s Tasting and Wine Experience, allowing you a front-row seat to the open kitchen.
