Victoria and Alberts MIchelin Star Award
Posted: Friday April 19, 2024 9:05pm ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Victoria & Albert's at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort has been awarded a Michelin Star for 2024.

Michelin says, "Nestled within Disney's crown jewel, the Grand Floridian Resort, this restaurant is by no means an easy reservation, but the reward is a kind of magic rarely seen these days. The setting is intimate, and the pacing is that of a leisurely, three-hour waltz orchestrated by a gracious brigade of veteran servers. Chef Matthew Sowers cooks with contemporary verve and draws on influences spanning from Asia to the Nordics. Think delicate tarts set with New Zealand langoustine, striking 'sandwiche' made with venison carpaccio and red cabbage, and bold sauces like cherry-cola bordelaise. Other details like water lists, an ornate coffee and tea service, and a serious wine program further impress."

A Michelin Star is awarded to restaurants offering outstanding cooking. Michelin takes into account five universal criteria: the quality of the ingredients, the harmony of flavours, the mastery of techniques, the personality of the chef as expressed through their cuisine and consistency both across the entire menu and over time.

In addition to the Michelin Star, Israel Perez of Victoria & Albert's is awarded the 2024 MICHELIN Guide Florida Service Award Winner.

Dining at Victoria & Albert's at Walt Disney World is known for being a high-end, luxurious experience, and the cost reflects that. Prices can vary depending on the dining option you choose:

  • The Dining Room: The prix fixe menu in the main dining room costs around $295 per person, not including tax and gratuity.

I haven’t been anywhere near OBT in years. I did recently have a lovely meal at Citricos though.

I’m sure it’s rotational… I saw turbot, rabbit, boar and lamb… The prep is excellent of course…but too gamey Sure they ate that in the 1800’s…but everyone also died at 35 🤷🏻‍♂️

I was wondering why the dining area didn't seem very crowded. :D I just found my special Disney badge for that visit. It was our 34th anniversary, so that means we went there in December, 2019.

It was closed from 3/15/2020 to 7/28/2022

When we went in December, 2020, the total bill for the two of us was $842 and we didn't even do any wine pairings. That included tax and gratuity. Also, I think I remember it being called a 10-course dinner.

Meh…topolino is just ok. I’d still take JIKO and maybe flying fish over that.

Probably a lot, and that's understandable. A Michelin Star is a huge deal.

How do you like Topolino's? Besides Victoria and Albert's, Topolino's is probably the highest quality I've seen at Disney. I felt California Grill dropped a bit as of late and I don't think many others are even in the conversation.
