THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Buccaneer Bay Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Decorated with rich fabrics, carved cabinets and treasure chests, this 118-seat pirate-themed restaurant features a number of intimate alcoves and cozy rooms. Guests at most tables have a good view of the simulated battle between sirens and pirates on ships in the sea below. For starters, try the sautéed escargot with pistachios, Champagne butter and brioche, and the chilled Maine lobster salad with purple potatoes, chipotle and orange dressing. Among savory entrées, we like the bouillabaisse with saffron in a fennel broth. The blackened gulf snapper with a crab quesadilla is a winner, as is the Cantonese roast duck with sauce à l'orange. Carnivores go for the buffalo rib-eye with truffle whipped potato and the rack of lamb with a parsley-Dijon mustard crust and pomme fondant. Cap your fine dining with your choice of signature soufflés.
