Sebastian’s Bistro at Disney’s Caribbean Beach is a new dining location that celebrates the natural beauty of the Caribbean. Its design will features coral patterns, kelp filigree, with sea inspired art and other nautical designs. You might even see Sebastian himself floating around.
Located in the Old Port Royale area, it will transport resort guests to a paradise full of fun, relaxation, and Caribbean and Latin blended flavors. The restaurant is now taking reservations online or via (407) WDW-DINE. And they’ve provided a taste of what the menu will be like.
The menu will have a diverse variety of items that ranges from seafood, steak, salads, sandwiches, and burgers. On the appetizer side try the Caribbean Pull-Apart Rolls (served with guava butter, mango chutney, and Jamaican jerk oil), Jamaican Meat Pies with Guajillo chili sauce, or the Arepa with slow-cooked pork and chili-mango barbecue sauce.
Entrees include Skirt Steak “Chimichurri” with crispy yuca, Citrus-Stuffed Sustainable Whole Fish with turmeric brown rice and cilantro-lime vinaigrette, and Sautéed Shrimp and Tamales with sautéed peppers and salsa verde. Also on the menu is the Crab Cake-topped Burger with lettuce, tomato, and horseradish mayonnaise and the Crispy Avocado Bacon Burger with chimichurri and pico de gallo.
I’m excited that the menu contains several vegan options such as the Island Curry “Eggless” Sandwich served on multigrain bread and the Plant-Based Bahn Mi Sandwich with cucumbers, pickled vegetables, and Miso-Sriracha mayonnaise.
Don’t leave before dessert with the tropical fruit forward flavors. Mile Marker Zero, inspired by the culture of Key West, features Iced Key Lime Pops with sea salt and tropical sauce. Then there’s the Banoffee Pie with banana custard and chocolate ganache served in a graham cracker tart with caramel sauce as well as the Floating Island Sundae with fresh Caribbean fruit, meringue, guava, and Guanabana sorbet.
Kids will enjoy unique but familiar fare with entrees like Whole Grain Penne with zucchini and roasted tomato sauce, Jerk Grilled Chicken, Grilled Shrimp Skewer with Cilantro-Lime Cream, and a Jamaican Meat Pie. Sides include items such as sautéed green beans, mac and cheese, pizza biscuits, cauli-fries with carrot ketchup, and more.
The restaurant will have tropical island-inspired beverages for everyone in the family. Mocktails both fruity and frozen or actual cocktails with Caribbean rum are on the menu. You’ll also find craft beers and wines to compliment the Latin flavors of the menu.
The restaurant is expected to open on October 8. We can’t wait for our first visit. You don’t even have to be staying at Caribbean Beach Resort to make a reservation. Will you stop by for a taste on your next trip?
