Catal at Downtown Disney Anaheim

We enjoyed Catal's intimate atmosphere and open fire on a cool Christmas Eve. Despite being a huge place it is sectioned into smaller dining rooms which works well in our opinion. We had reservations for 5.30pm as we were still on UK time ( only having arrived that afternoon) and were seated immediately. Catal is upstairs and commands good views over Downtown Disney from all areas of the restaurant. We really enjoyed the experience and will definitely return!
We were given amuse bouches to start and bread with oil and balsamic.
J had for main course: Monkfish with artichoke, pear, onion, ginger and lardons. Beautifully subtle.
And for pud: Granny Smith apple tart with caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream. Irresistibly hearty.
D had for main course: Duck with plantain and green beans in a Peking sauce. Gorgeous and tender.
And pud: Blood Orange Pannacotta. Light as a feather but watch those calories! We shared a bottle of Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc and finished with Lattes. Totalling $133 inc tip.
