Menu suggestions for Disney restaurants please

My husband and I are going to Walt Disney World next week for 7 days. We have reservations at Jiko, Kona Cafe, Le Cellier, Bistro de Paris, Kouzzina, Sanaa, and Mama Melrose. I definitely plan to order the cheddar cheese soup and mushroom filet at Le Cellier and am thinking of the whole fish, grilled cheese appetizer, and seafood stew at Kouzzina. What do you think? What would you recommend at these restaurants? We would like to do appetizer and main course, dessert if it's good but will pass if only mediocre.

It will be our first time dining at all of them (we are also going to Boma). We are both very adventurous foodies and love seafood, spicy, game (steak will be ordered rare), offal (not that they have it at Disney), and no food allergies or limitations. We love Ethiopian, eat Indian regularly (both north and south, meat and veg only), dine at ethnic restaurants all the time (I'm Chinese American), eat sushi/ceviche and other raw seafood, etc.

We want to try the best that each place has to offer, whether it's expert execution or unique and authentic dishes. Chowhounds, please help! Thanks in advance. :)

      I had found the second thread but not the first. Thanks!

    2. The best food I had during my last Disney visit was at a "character lunch " at the Crystal Palace (for my four year old). It was a high end buffet and the food was great at all levels, meaning stuff for the kids and great stuff for adults. I was tremendously surprised by the skill of the buffet preparation and the variation of the offerings. Fine dining no, but a meal that pleased the entire family fully - absolutely.

      1. These people over at disboards are extremely helpful there is also a thread where people show off the food they ordered.
        check out there disney restaurant forum

          Lots of great info on disboards. Thanks for the link.

        2. If the cost is not out of reach you should try Victoria a Alberts

          The 7 course tasting menu was fantastic

            We are also going on a 7-night western Caribbean cruise on DCL on this trip, and I'm expecting gluttony galore on the ship. This is part of the reason I haven't included V&A, Flying Fish, Citricos, etc in our WDW dining choices. We will definitely try V&A some time soon though!
