As for the wine? Wow. Their wine list is impressive, to say the least, and the prices are off-the-charts reasonable. How reasonable? Well, we all know when you go eat in a restaurant you are going to pay a significant premium over retail prices. Not here. For example, one of the wines we enjoyed was $110 on the menu. I had just paid $128.99 for the same bottle from wine.com! It was LESS at the restaurant!
Not to mention, they have a spectacular list of wines by the glass. Opus One. You read that right, we paid $40 for a 6-oz glass of Opus One. Oh, and if you only want ONE ounce, you can get that too.
These deals aren't Disney-wide. We ate at Napa Rose a couple days later and the wine prices there were what you would expect in most restaurants. Not outrageous by any means, but certainly not under retail!
We had such a great meal here that the next day, while we had a few minutes before a parade, we stopped into the lounge to have another nice bottle with a charcuterie plate. That was this one:
The accompanying charcuterie board was incredible, and I particularly remember a slab of honeycomb that was so amazing we asked for another one!
From dinner the night before, this was the bottle that was CHEAPER than I had recently paid retail:
And we weren't in the mood for a second bottle of wine, but we weren't about to pass up a couple bottles of this beauty. A bottle, IIRC, was about $300. Again, cheaper than you could buy it from the winery itself!
So there you have it. Our meal, including a bottle of Almaviva and 2 glasses of Opus, plus appetizer, dessert and a great tip? $400. Pretty tough to beat that!
Can't wait for our next trip!
