Summary

Space 220 has the best entrance experience of any Walt Disney World restaurant, and the food is good too. Yes, it's pricey, but to us it's a better value than the Droid Depot. at Disney's Hollywood Studios. You'll spend less per person here and you won't feel nearly as rushed.

Space 220 offers fixed-price menus for lunch and dinner. Each includes an appetizer and entree, and for dinner you also get dessert. Several up-charge extras, such as lobster, are also available.

Setting and Atmosphere

The premise for Space 220 is that you're dining at the Centauri space station, tethered to Florida and flying 220 miles above Epcot. You are seated at tables that look out into space as different astronauts float by on hoverboards or in their space suits.

There are 15 tables in the lounge area, either white or gray, and are in the section next to the bar on the right of the room. The best seats are the 22 window booths, each of which fit 4 people and have spectacular "views". Another 50 tables are spread over the base and upper level of the restaurant.

House Specialties

For appetizers, try:

  • The Big Bang Burrata: "soft", "creamy", "enormous". Those are the best ways to describe cheese
  • Starry Calamari: Perfectly crispy and well seasoned slivers of squid in a light, crunchy batter. The spicy marinara will have your mouth a little on fire after a few bites. The roasted pepper citrus aioli is delightful.
  • Neptune Tartare: Fresh, beautiful, and a portion large enough to justify the price. The presentation is immaculate.
  • Space Greens: the best salad outside of the epic strawberry salad at Citricos. Sweet, tart, and fresh.

For mains, avoid the Centauri Burger and try these:

  • Flat Iron Steak: Ours was a perfect medium-rare. This was one of those moments that we were so excited about the food that we forgot we were working and supposed to be taking pictures. The Coffee Space Rub gives each piece a gorgeous high-heat sear that seals in the juice of the quality cut of meat.
  • Roasted Free-Range Chicken: This is the mirror twin of the roulade of chicken at CĂ­tricos at the Grand Floridian. Moist chicken and liquid gold in the form of roasted garlic thyme jus. We can't wait to go back for this.

For dessert, try these:

  • Plant-Based Carrot Cake: Our favorite of the three desserts. Beautiful, deep, sweet flavor and such a pretty presentation.
  • Sticky Toffee Pudding Cake: The best version of this British classic. If you like that slight bitter bite of a dark treacle, this is your jam. Your server will pour the warm splash of sticky, sweet caramel over the perfect little mound of cake and bananas, so have your phone ready.

Avoid the Lemon Mousse. Its gorgeous white chocolate rings make this the most visually on-theme of the desserts but it is so sour that it's impossible to move past the pucker to properly appreciate the fluffy, creamy texture as you swipe your spoon through the custard. We're ready to stand up and cheer for each citrus addition to any menu, but this was far too sour. Our server warned us that while it was going to make a great picture, it wasn't her favorite. We agree.

Other items on the menu:

  • Galactic Lobster Globe Listed as a "Space Station Supplemental", which means it's an additional charge on top of the fixed-price menu. This is presented in a thick, glass bowl terrarium that'd be right at home on the desk of the Beyonce scientist in Spaceship Earth. It's dramatic and striking and is even more impressive when you start to fish out the enormous chunks of lobster. It's no secret that Disney lobster is often lacking, but this doesn't fall in that category. It is so fresh and beautifully prepared, but the best part of this dish is the huge pile of lobster included.
  • Planetary Punch - Hooray for any drink that promises bubbles and a show and delivers for more than a second or two! Blue / purple fun with a sweet flavor.
  • Atmospritz - Served in a martini glass, your server will pour this very strong drink over a puff of cotton candy. Even a fist full of fairy floss cannot sweeten this very strong drink enough for us.
  • The Milky Way (non-alcoholic) - Comes with a little clip and a bite size Milky Way. The best part? The Space 220 trading cards that come with all kids meals and non-alcoholic drinks!
