Dining in Disney - Day 12

On our twelfth day in Florida, we had a lazy morning by the pool and then headed to Epcot for the rest of the afternoon. We had a dinner reservation at the Yachtsman Steakhouse, located in the beautiful Yacht Club Resort. Here's where and what we ate:

Breakfast at Landscape of Flavours - Art of Animation

We had our usual breakfast of cereal and sides of fruit and a cookie. We also had a toasted bagel and some fresh orange juice. Husband had his steak burger and fries. We kept our fruit and cookies to have by the pool later on.

The total cost of our meal was $32.50 with no tip required.

Snacks in Epcot

It was such a warm day that we weren't feeling overly hungry so we got some ice cream instead. The kids chose a Mickey ice cream cookie sandwich, Husband chose a Mickey ice cream encased in a chocolate shell and I chose a strawberry ice lolly.

The snacks cost us around $17 with no tip required.

Dinner at the Yachtsman Steakhouse - Yacht Club Resort

We were really looking forward to our dinner at the Yachtsman Steakhouse. We decided to book a fancy dinner just before the end of our holiday and the Yachtsman Steakhouse sounded perfect. Located in the Yacht Club resort, it really is a dream place to visit if you love sailor inspired decor. It kind of reminded me a bit of the hotel in Dirty Dancing. The resort has its own man made beach and it was really calm and relaxed in comparison with the Art of Animation which was go, go, go!

The restaurant was quite busy and there were lots of families in there which was a relief as I was worried it might be a bit too fancy for kids. Not that Z and Miss C misbehave in restaurants; sometimes though, you do wonder how other childless diners will react to kids being in a posh place. Thankfully we didn't need to worry!

The staff were great and very efficient. The menu read very well and I struggled to choose what I wanted because there were so many delicious sounding dishes. We chose a starter, main and pudding as it was our last big meal of the trip. Husband also treated himself to a bottle of champagne.

For starters I had lobster bisque which was really, really tasty. The portion size was really good too and I felt like I'd had just enough to really enjoy it. Husband had pork belly and clams and again, it was really tasty. Z even tried some of the clams and loved them.

For mains, I had the 6oz Black Angus filet mignion which came with mash potatoes. The steak was cooked perfectly and was so tender. It came with a Cabernet wine sauce which went really well with the steak. Husband went for the 18oz Kansas City Strip steak with malt fries. Extra sides, such as vegetables or onion rings, are charged as an extra with your main dishes but the main dishes are a decent sized portion that we didn't feel we needed any sides at all.

Husband was so stuffed after his steak, he couldn't managed a pudding but I went for good old trusted crème brulee and I'm glad I kept space as it was delicious.

The kids' menu had a great selection of dishes and all very reasonably priced. For starters the kids had chicken noodle soup which they thought was very tasty. For mains, Z chose the steak skewers served with mash potatoes and veg and Miss C chose the pasta and meatballs.

For their pudding, I decided to order for them. I had heard that the Mickey Puzzle pudding was a fantastic pudding to get for the kids and we certainly weren't disappointed when they arrived!

The kids had great fun painting their chocolate pudding and then eating every last bit.

As part of the meal, your table receives a selection of really delicious breads including these amazing onion and garlic muffin/pastry type goodies. I could have eaten them all night.

We really, really enjoyed our meal at the Yachtsman Steakhouse. If you were on the Dining Plan, it would be the equivalent of 2 Dining Credits (correct at time of publishing) and definitely worth saving two for. The food and service was superb.

The total cost of our meal was around $260 including tax and we left a 20% tip taking our total bill to around $315. An expensive meal but definitely worth it.
