With so many new things opening up at Walt Disney World lately, it can be hard to keep up! We’ve been anxiously waiting to see what Walt Disney World has dreamt up for the new look of Caribbean Beach Resort. And along with that, their new restaurant, Sebastian’s Bistro. Perfect for anyone looking to add more Little Mermaid to their vacation. We also think this restaurant carries all the vibes of an island lifestyle.
Sebastian’s Bistro at Caribbean Beach Resort
With the arrival of the newly refurbished Caribbean Beach, comes a whole new restaurant, featuring our favorite sidekick, Sebastian. Reservations here were super easy to get, and although this is a smaller restaurant, we anticipate this will be the case for a while. This is simply because it’s still a hidden gem. Now that Caribbean Beach is on the Disney Skyliner line we figure many a Disney vacationer will stumble upon Port Royale and realize this place is here! With waterside views and light Caribbean dining options.
How to Get to Sebastian’s Bistro
Once at Caribbean Beach you just head towards Port Royale. It’s placed in the center of the resort for easy access. Check out our Caribbean Beach Review with a map if you need a visual. After walking through the lobby, you can find the new bar area overlooking the water and Aruba in the distance. Complete with swing loungers and beautiful drapery, the open air bar area already exudes a step above the old theming of Caribbean Beach. So if this was a resort you visited long ago, get ready to be impressed. Seriously, I’m pretty sure we could just stay here all day. Swoon.
Dining at Sebastian’s Bistro
Sebastian’s Bistro has the same vibe as the resort. Modern, simple and beautiful. With a touch of the islands. Sebastian’s Bistro is a fairly small restaurant, but not cramped and with high ceilings, definitely feels bigger than it actually is. We absolutely loved the décor and color scheme inside the restaurant.
Sebastian’s Bistro Food
The menu at Sebastian’s Bistro which the server described as “adventurous”, consists of a lot of bolder flavors, seafood, and some fun drinks, both alcoholic and non alcoholic. Depending on your appetite and tastes, you can get a sandwich for as low as $14 or a steak as much as $28. The pricing is pretty on point with most dining options at Walt Disney World. Portion sizes are plenty, so you can definitely get away with sharing if you want. Especially, to save on costs or if you have a smaller appetite like we do. The server actually recommended sharing since we were wanting to have an appetizer, lunch and dessert.
We started out with the Carribbean Pull-apart rolls, which come with 3 dipping sauces. Guava Butter, Mango Chutney and Jamaican Jerk Oil come with the rolls. We liked them all but the jerk oil was probably our favorite. We’re Italian so we always have oil with our bread and this was a nice twist on an old favorite for us. We highly recommend getting bread service to start. Its fun, delicious and super share-able.
Main Course Entree Options
For the main course, we decided to share the Crispy Avocado Bacon Burger, and I’m glad we did. This thing was huge. Topped with chimichurri and pico de gallo, the flavors were fantastic. We take any chance we can to eat avocado, which definitely swayed our decision, but the waitress actually recommended this for “picky” eaters, which we aren’t, but I can see why this would be her recommendation.
Dessert at Sebastian’s Bistro
Of course we can’t have a meal at Walt Disney World without a dessert, so we ordered the Banoffee Tart, another one of the recommendations from the server. If you like Banana, you will really enjoy this. If you don’t, then you should skip it. It was very good, with chocolate and caramel to compliment the banana very nicely, but the banana flavor is very strong. So you really have to like banana to enjoy this one.
Sebastian’s Bistro Restaurant Review
Overall, we really enjoyed the entire experience of Sebastian’s Bistro at the Caribbean Beach Resort. From the setting to the food, we love the step up in themeing and can’t wait to see what new additions come to the resort as it completes construction. Have you been to Caribbean Beach lately? What do you think of the new renovations? Let us know, we’d love to hear!
