Great change of pace 8/6/2007

This is a great restaurant if you're looking for something different. The African cuisine is outstanding, but not necessarily for everyone... some of it is a bit exotic. The ""Taste of Africa"" is an enjoyable appitizer. I didn't like every ""taste,"" but it was fun trying. They have an amazing wine collection. Knowing nothing about African wine, I asked for a recommendation. The waitress brought me two choices, and both were so good that it was difficult to choose. The theming of the restaurant is Disney at it's best. No matter when you're there, it feels like the sun is setting. The hostess did a fine job of explaining the details of the artwork. One of the best at Disney. Pros: Food, wine, service, theming Cons: Be willing to try something different more

All I can say is wonderful 6/19/2007

Amazing food and wine! 12/30/2006

Comming from an extremely picky eater... The food is simply amazing! Also, try to get a seat at the chef's table if you can, the preparation is fun to watch and the preps are good conversationalists. Pros: Ambience, Wood oven, unique dishes Cons: Can be crowded (Disney) more

Good but not great... 8/22/2004

Beautiful restaurant in Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge features servers from different African nations. The food was variable, our favorites included the delicious cold octopus appetizer and bread sampler. The main entrees were above average but not great...the monkfish was very good and was served with extremely tasty vegetables and potatoes. The sea bass was fair and was coated with a rather dry and spicy coating. The plantains at the bottom of the fish were excellent, though. We tried the dessert sampler and were not overwhelmed. Most were not all that tasty and had unusual fruity and liqueurish flavors that did not seem to meld very well. We instead focused on our son's smores dessert which was average. more

Want an exotic & tasty dinner? 3/4/2003

Try Jiko, located in Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. An unusual restaurant in an unusual resort. You will not see anything quite like this. A bit cramped with tables though. Try the taste of Africa sauces & flatbreads, very good starter. The steamed bass in parchment was cooked/seasoned & quite flavorful. My wife enjoyed her monkfish as well. Unusual food in an unusual surrounding makes for a very unique dining experience. On the spendy side and reservations recommended as soon as you know when you will visit. Enjoyable African wine list as well. Pros: exotic foods, unique atmosphere Cons: cramped tables, on Disney property more

tops at Disney World 1/5/2003

stunning interior with superbly prepared food...just different enough to give you an African flavor but catering to American tastes. The lighting orchestrated sunset added to the ambience. Incredible wines although the sparkling wine would have been better off being French or Californian. Pros: priority reservations, are a must Cons: unadventurous diners more

Wineguy 11/25/2002

Superb cuisine with the sleeper of the century wine list. the South African selections are priced right and rival California's finest. The service is prompt but not overbearing. This is a restaurnat I will return to again and again and I won't do that with many others around the country. Pros: Food Diversity, Wine selections, Friendly Staff more
