Grand Floridian Room, Narcoossee’s, Victoria & Albert’s Review

We’ll take a moment to visit the Grand Floridian Resort at night, have dinner at Narcoosse’s, have dinner at Victoria & Albert’s, have dinner at Citricos, have afternoon tea, have breakfast at Grand Floridian Cafe, check out a standard room, and check out a 2-bedroom villa HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Part 1 here will cover about a third of that. I feel like I should charge admission for this post.

Narcoossee’s is the signature restaurant located outside the Grand Floridian’s main building. You’ll find it down the path to the left of the recently refurbished courtyard pool.

47 degree nights are an excellent opportunity to take pool pix without the fear of being awarded a third strike.

The joys of not carrying a tripod.

According to Disney, we are about to “slip away to this elegant waterfront retreat for exquisite seafood specialties and spectacular views of Seven Seas Lagoon.”

I just thought it felt crowded.

Upon entering, the kitchen greets prospective diners.

In addition to the small wait area. Our reservation was for 9:15pm, a solid hour after Wishes finished, and the restaurant was perhaps 20% full. The smart money is on booking a reservation about an hour before Wishes starts and requesting a window table at check-in. Everyone else tends to have the same idea, so you may not be able to score one.

The website does not generally recommend booking a dining reservation in order to see the nighttime entertainment, inside the Park or not. While a few restaurants do theoretically offer great views, not all tables enjoy one. Consider a terrific view of IllumiNations from La Hacienda de San Angel a bonus, but you may be disappointed if it’s your one shot at seeing IllumiNations and your party is seated in the back. This is our view of the Electric Water Pageant from the table.

My side of the table has a restricted view of Cinderella Castle through the windows in the distance, while Lisa’s parents have virtually no view of anything other than blogging royalty. And me.

The balcony that circles the restaurant outside affords a decent view of the Castle across the water, but a reservation isn’t required and your view is similar to the boat dock next door as well as the marina closer to Gasparilla Grill.

I don’t think we’re too far away from, “Come on guys. At least not jorts.”‘

Major props to whoever is writing this crap for the Daz. “Capable of bold flavors, subtle nuances, and layer upon layer of flavor, the possibility to find harmonious pairings are limitless.” And that’s just the Bud Light!

It’s either my addiction to botox or one too many $75 Diet Cokes, but very few Disney prices cause one of my eyebrows to raise. $70 steak/lobster tail combos will do it though, not to mention the $45 scallop plate or $38 pasta. Even if the chef’s name is “Den-nis,” I hope he makes people call him “Deh-nee.” Tres French.

Kids.


The cocktail list is pretty ho hum, perhaps with the exception of the Woodford Manhattan and I don’t recall seeing Conundrum Sangrias elsewhere. Disney continues to elevate its beer game with several outstanding, albeit overpriced options. The Rogue Dirtoir actually stands out as a good value – it’s a 22-ounce bottle that costs $8 at Total Wine. I otherwise have my eye on that St. Bernardus, which runs around $18 for a 4-pack in stores.



Wine flights continue their expansion as well.

Should you not have a reservation or prefer to sneak in for a cocktail and some appetizers, Narcoosse’s does have a bar in the center of the restaurant. Unfortunately, it affords no real view.

You could look up I guess.

Spoiler: We thought the restaurant was reminiscent of a Red Lobster, the service was far too casual for the money, and the food was overpriced, even by your favorite theme park’s usual standards.

Dinner is avec Lisa and her parents. Randy ordered the very bloggable Woodford Manhattan – an excellent choice.

Is a Sidecar a girly drink? This one was definitely on the sweeter side with a heavy pour of the lazy lemonade and a very sugary rim.

We started with the Artisanal Cheese – Five tasting portions from around the world with accompaniments – $18.

Smart enough to let the ladies have at it, I sat most of this one out.

It’s certainly a nice way to begin a meal – this one was fairly straightforward.

Surprisingly tasteless bread arrives shortly after orders are taken. This “sourdough” was almost completely devoid of flavor and the accompanying butter sprinkled with “Hawaiian salt” didn’t do much to jazz it up.

The Crispy Rhode Island Calamari Pepperoncini-Olive Relish and Tomato Coulis – $14.

Lightly battered and fried, these were well above average, though the chintzy amount of sauce underneath left something to be desired.

Maine Lobster Bisque – Butter-poached Lobster, Coral, Vanilla-infused Lobster Oil, and Chervil – $13. Rough pricing on this creamy soup with three or four small lobster chunks.

Heirloom Apple Salad – Matsu Apples, Jones Farm Baby Lettuce, Medjool Dates, Spiced Candied Almonds, Point Reyes Bay Blue, and Cranberry-Moscato Vinaigrette – $13.

Grilled Wild Caught Corvina – Marble Potatoes, Florida Sweet Corn, Nueske’s Cherrywood-smoked Bacon, Celery, “Chowda sauce” and Roasted Red Pepper Rouille $39.

Butter-poached Maine Lobster Tail with Grilled Black Angus 12-oz New York Strip – Applewood-smoked Bacon Potato Gratin, Organic Summer Vegetables, and Salsa Verde – $72. This is the most expensive single entree at any Disney World restaurant as far as I can remember. At such a lofty price point, the quality of the meat didn’t meet expectations and the butter-poached lobster tail didn’t taste any different than your standard steamed variety. Good, but not great.

Lisa loved her House-made Roasted Buttercup and Kabocha Pumpkin Ravioli – Heirloom Apple, Lacinato Kale, Aged Gruyère, Toasted Pistachios, and Ace Joker Hard Cider Beurre Noisette – $33.

My $38 plate of House-made Local Shrimp Fettuccine – Wild Florida Jumbo Shrimp with Savory Spinach, Baby Heirloom Tomatoes, and Lemon-Chardonnay-Garlic Cream Sauce. Lighter than I was expecting from a cream-based sauce, the pasta probably would have been helped with some freshly grated cheese, which wasn’t offered.

The eight-or-so shrimp were perfectly prepared, but the dish overall was a bit muted. For the money, I think you would expect something a little more.

While our entrees were all serviceable, I don’t think they were worthy of being served in Disney’s most expensive signature restaurant.

Sippin’ on a Nutty Irishman nbd.

Tea.

The sort of unfortunate looking Narcoossee’s “Candy Bar” – Dark Chocolate-Mocha Bar with House-made Guanaja Chocolate Gelato – $10 was so rich and so dense that one small bite was plenty.

The Almond-crusted Cheesecake finished with Lambert Cherry Sauce – $10 was nearly as decadent and an excellent way to end a very expensive meal. The cheesecake is just sweet enough and the almonds add some crunch and a bit of spice. Very good. Ending a day here at the bar with a glass of wine and the cheesecake would be pretty posh.

Narcoossee’s is an approachable restaurant, which may be a good thing for families. There is no pretentiousness or stuffiness to speak of. I thought it “felt” a little too casual for a signature restaurant charging these prices. But service was as cordial as your neighborhood Chili’s and you should feel right at home with what I would characterize as an unremarkable restaurant.

Switching gears, this is a Standard Grand Floridian room.

2k14 rack rate pricing starts at $549 and goes all the way up to a staggering $856 per night and this is the least expensive room at the resort. A theme park view room in this configuration would run you somewhere between $669 and a whopping $1,066 per night.

For the money, you’d think the drawers would be cleared out. Instead, we found the last guests’ crumpled up receipts.

It’s funny because right above it sits a card that reads, “Welcome, I have prepared your room today and hope that you are pleased and comfortable.” I called the desk and demanded a Grand Floridian upgrade.

Rooms are otherwise undergoing a major renovation.

This is an older room with furnishings that probably needed to be replaced a few years ago.

It’s hard to rationalize the immense cost of the room, no matter your tax bracket.

Couch.

Chair.

Bathroom:




You do actually get a fridge, which might make the $400 difference between this and Riverside worthwhile.

There is a bit of a fireworks view from this particular room.

Finishing up with the lobby of this particular guest building. For me, there is nowhere near enough value to justify the price. We just got off a 4-night cruise on the Disney Magic that cost $560. For two people. With taxes, fees, and tips included. That’s less than the cheapest room at the Grand Floridian on the cheapest night of the year. For one night. And you’d still need to buy Park tickets and food. The difference between a Standard room here and at Riverside is $367 on the cheapest night of the year. That would cover a dinner for two at Victoria & Albert’s with money left over. Every night.

Moving along to Victoria & Albert’s, located just off the lobby on the second floor.

When discussing WDW dining, V&A is going to top just about every conceivable “best of” list. And the runner up isn’t even close. If V&A is Splash Mountain, #2 is Stitch’s Great Escape. At least that’s the hype.

Staff is dressed like they’re working a funeral at the Haunted Mansion. Service was refined to the point where it “felt” wooden. They know your name when you arrive, can recite everything you order at any point if after three hours you’ve forgotten what the fifth course is, and describe every dish in tortuous detail. Yes, all seven butter courses have a #story, not to mention the breads, wines, and everything in between. He had me thinking we were drinking some pretty good stuff until we got to the final course, which was served alongside Rosa Regale. He was going on about the foothills of Italy this and the Brachetto d’Acqui Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita that. Bro, I have had Regale before. It is Franzia with 4,917 sugar cubes mixed in.

The windowless restaurant is otherwise either elegant or stuffy.

Canon shooters are offered a cushion for their cameras. Nikon shooters place their cameras on the floor where they belong.


Your seven course meal.

The food:

The menu changes often enough that I don’t think there’s much use in describing each item. Several, including the Maine Diver Scallop, Mangalista Pork, Roasted White Chocolate Gelato, and Chocolate Souffle, were the single best representations of that item I’ve ever eaten. This is not a website that will tell you how amazing!!!!! whatever cupcake Hollywood Studios is currently offering for six bucks is, but the food here truly is amazing. Definitely finish your meal with coffee. Superb.

Dinner is a minimum of $135 per person and it’s a bargain at that price. While the pretentiousness of this place is off-putting and I could have gone with six or seven fewer lectures about butter, this is a special experience and one that can’t be replicated anywhere else on property.

The wine pairings run $65 and are also a bargain. Lisa’s parents were celebrating their anniversary (awwwwwwww) and started us off with a bottle of champagne. Since the first course is paired with champagne, we elected to add wine with dessert. And out came the Regale.

In part 2 we’ll check out the rest of Grand Floridian’s fine dining options.

    Receipts left in the room from previous guests?! VACATION RUINED! In all seriousness, that is something that should not be over looked by staff.

    My wife wasn’t to try both restaurants next time we go. Narcoossee’s seems good. V&A, not so much on my part.
    Thanks for the post!

  2. Michelle UK says

    So good to have you back Josh. The ‘not dead’ tweet after several days of silence made me and my husband LOL.

    Thanks as always for an excellent review. That standard room at the GF would have me walking straight back out to reception again and demanding a refurbished one (although I don’t know how good they look either?) So shabby and like someone’s Grandma’s house.

    We liked Narcoossee’s very much on our 2012 trip, and had great, very professional service. Tom was one of the best servers of our trip. He was American but it transpired that he descended from the same clan on the Isle of Sky (Scotland) as my (half English, half Scottish) husband. What are the chances?

    We will be returning to Narcoossee’s on our trip in May, and I’m hoping that calamari is still on the menu. I also like the inclusion of shrimps and rice on the kids menu, my girls would love that as a break from their usual WDW table service meal of pasta marinara, so I’m hoping it has proven popular enough to stay on the menu

    Thanks for the inclusion of the vegetarian menu at V&A. My family does not eat meat or animal products eg gelatine, but we do eat fish. Even though I can’t ever see us being in the market for V&As it’s good to know they ‘welcome’ vegetarians although I wish more restaurant chefs knew that Parmesan is not vegetarian as it contains calf rennet. Disappointing to see it included on the vegetarian menu at such a ‘high-class’ restaurant. I’m expecting to have to ask a number of times for the vegetarian dish to be served without Parmesan on our upcoming trip, as we often do at restaurants at WDW and elsewhere

  3. James says

    Great review as normal. I just don’t get why you dislike the Disney food blog so much, they are always positive about everything but it’s very informative.

  4. Ivy says

    What a coinky dink; my husband and I just ate at V&A last night! Mike in the picture was our male server; he was very nice, not too stuffy. Kinda reminded me of Keith Olbermann. And I made the same remark about the Haunted Mansion (not to his face lol)!

    It was a unique experience, and the bread was awesome. Each one was better than the last. That Austrian bread made with the yeast starter his grandmother carried over the Alps escaping from the Nazis while singing “Climb Every Mountain” was incredible. Truly. But to be honest, I thought a couple of dishes were a bit too salty (the scallop and the duck, both the same as yours on my menu).

    And it was a LOT of wine. (Not complaining there.) I actually think the amount of wine you get for $65 makes it cheaper than ordering by the glass at any other table service restaurant in Disney. I never had port before; it was pretty good.

    The lady who called last week to chat about our ADR said they lent navy blue jackets to the men, so that saved us $$ from having to buy one for the occasion. I thought it was funny that as they were helping hubbie into the jacket, they were telling him he could take it off at the table (30 feet away) and put it on the back of his chair! Um, then what’s the point? Would he have to put it back on to visit the restroom? They didn’t say. He kept it on.

    Grand Floridian is such a beautiful hotel but those room prices are too much. When you see what a trek it is to the main building from some of them, how is it worth it? We’re at AKL for the second time and just love it. We’ve also stayed at POFQ (2012) and thought it was a good value.

    We’re also loving the magic bands. So easy to get a drink or snack at the parks. Anyway, this was a great review as usual, Josh, worth waiting for!

  5. websteroni says

    So glad that you enjoyed V&A. I celebrated my 50th birthday there last year and it was truly memorable…although I agree that I really didn’t need the lecture on how each course was prepared.

    I’ve given Narcoossee’s three chances and I left disappointed each time. Service is sketchy at best and the food is so overpriced even by Disney standards. Sounds like you had a great vacation.

  6. BD says

    The cost of the wine pairing at V&A looks pretty reasonable. The cost of dinner is a tad high for a tasting menu but not too bad. I can get about 15 courses (mostly 1-2 bites) at the best restaurant in DC for that price. Might try it next time.

    Narcosse’s wine list is pretty standard an unimaginative. Priced about 3-4 times their cost per bottle.

  7. melissa says

    We are staying in a one bedroom villa this summer…hope to see you review that soon! The regular GF rooms, I cant get past Shabby Grandma Vintage….So not my style…..Great post. Loved your third strike remark. ha!

  8. Marci says

    My husband, mother, and I ate at both Narcoossee’s and Victoria and Albert’s on our trip in April 2013. Narcoossee’s food was good, but the service was meh. I’m glad we tried it, but we would not go back. We had a table at the window with a view for Wishes that became a view of some broad backsides when the fireworks started. We moved outside and my mother stood to see over the people on the balcony. Before we left, my mother and I went to use the ladies room and it was filthy! Vomit, feces, and trash oh my! I have seen much cleaner rest rooms at a truck stop!

    Victoria and Albert’s was sublime. We enjoyed everything about it (we are not fine dining regulars – we love food so we cook it ourselves). The service, the atmosphere, the food, the wine. We loved the descriptions ( laughed about the comment above re: sourdough starter!) and tried some foods we would never have dreamed of trying. I would definitely go there again, maybe take the kids when the last one (a freshman in high school) finishes college.

    That trip was a celebration of my husband’s 50th b-day and my mom’s 67th b-day and we had the best time!

    Our V & A meal was sublime. We enjoyed every bit of it from the descriptions (I laughed at the de

  9. Kate says

    I’ve been very much looking forward to this post, and it did not disappoint! That GF room looks rather disappointing however…

  10. nitabee says

    “We just got off a 4-night cruise on the Disney Magic that cost $560” — you should be in charge of finding me a good cruise deal. I’ve never been on one, and the process of starting planning is a bit much.

    The Grand Floridian was my dream resort, because when I was a kid riding the ferry boat, I always thought it looked so beautiful. Now that I’m older, I still think it’s beautiful, but those prices are outrageous.

  11. Hillary says

    I have eaten at Victoria and Albert’s twice for special occasions. The food was delicious and my family and I enjoyed the experiences very much. I have also eaten at Narcoossee’s twice. Both times I ordered the House-made Roasted Buttercup and Kabocha Pumpkin Ravioli and the Almond Cheesecake. Those two dishes are definitely the best Narcoossee’s has to offer. The ravioli dish was incredibly flavorful and unique. I wish that all vegetarian dishes could be prepared with such thoughtfulness of ingredients and perfect execution.

  12. Chris says

    Max, cruise prices on DCL that good are usually do to the Florida resident discount. Oh, to live in Florida again…

  13. Merrilyn says

    The best perk from having a Cast Member as a daughter is last minute cruise deals. We took our family of 5 with 2 ocean view staterooms on the Fanstasy for 7 days to the Western Carribean the week before Christmas for $2700. (Included a $300 discount for buying Disney gift cards @ Target with Red Card and Rx 5% coupon).

    Of course she barely makes minum wage, but that’s a whole other discussion…..

  14. Jody says

    Wow, those Grand Floridian standard rooms are expensive, and the theme park view rooms around a thousand! Of course the way things are going, if you extrapolate increases in rates at the Contemporary, less than a decade from now theme park view rooms at the Contemporary will start at a thousand a night…in “value” season.

  15. Patty57 says

    A question about the wine pairings for anyone who has done this. Is it seven glasses of wine, or more of a tasting portion? I’m a wine lightweight, and get pretty hammered on two glasses. I would be afraid to attempt the wine pairings.

  16. Katherine says

    Speaking of Disney cruises, can you remind Lisa to finish the Disney Dream review she started?? You two got as far as “Bon Voyage” and that’s all we’ve heard! And now you’ve been on another cruise since….. The suspense is killing us

  17. says

    Yeah, but you won’t get Norovirus while paying $1,000 a night at Grand Floridian. And I heard they give you SmartWool socks to put your Busch Light cans in for the refrigerator.

  18. Ivy says

    Patty57, it was a LOT of wine; had to be at least 3 oz per glass. They give you different shaped glasses depending on each wine, and pour them up to the widest part of the glass. I think it would be worth it even if you don’t finish them all. It’s such a nice experience to hear them describe each one and say why it was paired with your dish.

  19. Ivy says

    Oh and then you have your menu to take home reminding you of what you drank, in case you really love one you can buy it yourself.

  20. Jenn says

    Thanks so much for showing me thats its ok that I could never afford to stay there!! I would take my Port Orleans Bayou room over that any day! :)

  21. says

    We ate at V&A’s for the first time in October and fell in love! We actually split the wine pairing and that was perfect for us. So instead of getting wine with each course, we each had a glass of wine with three courses.

    I’m also interested in the cheapo DCL price, last-minute deal for locals?

  22. Dorliss Chambers says

    Great report Josh, nice to have you back. I can tolerate the high price of food & entertainment at WDW, but I agree that the prices for the GF & Narcoossee’s are over the top. The price of beer is a bummer when one bottle costs nearly as much as a six pack from the store down the road (which has a terrific selection).

    I’d love to try V&A’s, but my better half is strictly a meat & potatoes person, so all the fru fru stuff would be a waste. Besides, the cost of one dinner is just a little over our weekly grocery bill for the two of us.

  23. says

    “Ending a day here at the bar with a glass of wine and the cheesecake would be pretty posh.”

    Add some time listening to the combo and/or the any grand and it sounds posh. May do this in March. Maybe a little nosh at the pool bar first.

  24. Dawn H says

    SO glad you’re back safe and sound!! POSH…love that word!…if I paid that much for a room and walked in to see that it was almost exactly the same as a mod resort…ugghh…
    looking forward to Lisa’s post
    and oh, Josh, the brief peak at you in your fancy man clothes is cute!

  25. Renee says

    Wait a minute! How in the WORLD did you score a $560 with tax, fees, and tips for TWO people?… I take it that is not per person. I have never seen prices like that for a Disney Cruise. Where do you book?

  26. pfalcioni says

    “Staff is dressed like they’re working a funeral at the Haunted Mansion. ”
    As always, your sense of humor is stellar.

    That room at the GF looks like my Great Aunt Sadie Jo designed it, and I imagine it would smell like those round pink mints, Ponds cold cream, and Vicks Vapor-Rub. Fusty!

  27. Samantha says

    I can’t really afford to stay at the GF, but even if I could, I just don’t get it. Every time we’ve stayed at the Poly the monorail is full by the time it reaches the GF stop, and I think how aggravated I would be paying those prices to have to stand in a jammed car or wait for another monorail. And they don’t even have the option to walk to MK. I’d choose the CR over that any day. Although those prices, along with the Poly, are no longer in my acceptable range either, even with an AP discount.

  28. katie_gal says

    Josh, your caption “couch” should have read “ugly couch” just as “chair” should have read “ugly chair”. lol!

  29. Shinah says

    Oh this is perfect! My mom’s graduating from culinary school this year and instead of taking her somewhere amazing my dad is bringing her on a family vacation with my dad lol. Any way I thought I’d do SOMETHING for her while we were there and made her and my dad an ADR for V&A so it’s good to hear good things. I’ll be paying for it but I might just have my dad read this so he doesn’t have another stroke when he sees the pricing

  30. DUSTY CHEATHAM says

    the NARC as I call it . well 3 strikes & your out . V & A everyone should try it once if possible . however had 2 bad courses both involving wagu beef which you pay extra for . first time was chewing & discovered shotgun shot in said beef . yes, yes I know not possible ; did you send it back HELL NO should not have to . 2nd time again lets give wagu beef a second chance only to chew , & chew , & chew on a piece of what should only be described as shoe leather . no I did not send it back , however the lovely gentleman pictured above replaced my napkin . bon appitt

  31. RebeccaMcK says

    I won’t ever stay at the GF but it’s fun to look around, and I remember liking the afternoon tea. At V&A’s (and maybe also at Narcoosee’s) I assume you could ask to have certain sauces and any other “fu-fu” things left off a plate? I might really like the entrees but I know my picky meat-and-potatoes husband wouldn’t….he didn’t like his food at the Brown Derby or at the Carthay Circle place at DCA, so I know he’d probably only eat at the fancier places on WDW property if he could get his entrees served in a simpler way. And I bet we’d just get one shot at it because of the prices involved or if we were using the Dining Plan. Nice to see moscato on one of the menus (maybe both) as a wine option.

  32. Traci says

    We pretty much determined that the GF would be to formal (stuffy) for our WV blood, and we ruled out NARC (Dusty’s term) because of the menu….well, the fish. Now that I’ve read this post and seen the pictures I would say we are on the right track.

    About V&A though, the menu lost me at “fungus”! What was that? Did you eat it? :)

  33. April says

    “It is Franzia with 4,917 sugar cubes mixed in.”

    Bwahahahahahahaha. This is so true. At least when we dined there last August they didn’t bring out the Regale. Gah that stuff is awful.

    Love the review. Dh would never forgive me if I took photos during our courses, so I’m so glad you did. <3 you Josh!

  34. Ed says

    I don’t think that I’ll like the answer but if Canon gets a cushion and Nikon goes on the floor, where does Sony go?

  35. Nolarookie says

    Nice! I would have never considered going to V & A, but it seems like a great option for a special occasion. My 10th anniversary is coming up…..

  36. DUSTY CHEATHAM says

    nolarookie… v & a is a wonderful treat for birthdays & aniv $$$$$ I just had 2 bad courses . HOWEVER cittricos is on the same floor & shares the kitchen if you have a late dinner the atmosphere is fine dinning service is excellent & $$$ just beware snot noses running around which you will not have @ v & a . their shrimp app. & short ribs are excellent . march the 8th nice posh chair , adult bevarge in hand , piano playing , on 1st floor , band on 2nd floor , dumplinn in hand ” wife” just watching the world go by in the lobby of the ” grand flo” ah !!! life is good

  37. newbie says

    I ate at V&As a few times and highly recommend it. I would not call it stuffy, and I would certainly not call the food they describe to you as a “lecture”. That’s totally wrong. During fine dining the food is described to you as part of the experience.

    As for the wine pairings…. they do give you quite a bit of wine. They also present each bottle to you. Needless to say, I get pretty drunk by the time I leave. (Of course you don’t have to drink all of it) Though, its some of the best tasting wine I’ve ever had in my life and drank all of it except for desert.

  38. DUSTY CHEATHAM says

    PFALCIONI I have been asked that question several times . I am not a food snob by any means . this is after all V & A a 5 star spoon & a knife & to be honest the butler gentleman pictures above did offer to get another course for me BUT WAGU BEEF COME ON TENDER IS SUPPOSE TO COME TO MIND . my wife & I discovered citicios & the rest as they say is history , been there done that .

  39. Candice says

    Thank you for the V&A review. This is an experience I would love to try, but don’t have anyone that would be willing to do it with me. I am living vicariously through you and your photographs. Thanks! :)

  40. Oliver says

    I have a res for last week in April and they confirmed August 1st this year they stop accepting TiW. Thanks for this and all your reviews, great site!!!!!

  41. Sean says

    So we have reservations for V&A in late April and I’m trying to decide between the 7 course “regular” meal or the Queen Vic 10 course. Any thoughts? What’s the amount of food? And most importantly, what beers do they have at V&A?

  42. says

    We are booked at the GF in December because we received 35% off the room rate and the difference btw it at the CR was less than $200. All of the rooms should be totally refurbished by then. We wanted to stay at the Poly, but all the construction….. I keep debating about switching to the CR. I would for sure if they weren’t redoing the rooms……
