Blue Bayou Restaurant Review: Yes, that’s the Blue Bayou restaurant you spy from your plastic boat while floating around Disneyland’s Pirates of the Caribbean attraction. Once inside the restaurant, you are transported to a cool summer night in New Orleans complete with a riverside location, passing boats, wrought iron, marble tabletops and fancy lights that look like fire flies dancing in the dark. Chef Moises Carranza cooks up Southern-inspired dishes for lunch and dinner. At lunch, we suggest the Monte Cristo sandwich with its turkey, ham and Swiss cheese and battered bread grilled to a golden brown. Dinner features entrées such as seafood jambalaya, lobster, panko-crusted lamb or broiled filet mignon. For kids (ages 3-9), the menu is quite grown-up (roasted beef strip loin, chicken breast, pan-seared salmon), and the somewhat healthy dishes will fill them up. Opt for the French vanilla crème brûlée with ripe berries and whipped cream for dessert. Wine lovers note: Blue Bayou does not serve alcohol.
