I had the opportunity to try Gaston’s Tavern on my recent Disney visit and I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised.
This little quick service nook is hidden away in the back of Fantasyland in Magic Kingdom. You have to walk past Be Our Guest and it’s tucked away there on the left. It’s a small place with only a few tables and chairs, but if you can find your way in there, it’s worth the walk.
The menu includes chocolate croissants, warm cinnamon rolls, and fresh fruit. The day I visited was a nice sunny day, not too warm, so I decided to have the Tavern Beef Stew ($9.99). It’s served piping hot with a generous portion of baguette for dipping. I have to say, as someone who loves beef stew, my expectations were low. I was pleasantly surprised by how good the stew actually was! The beef was nice and tender and the broth was seasoned well. The potatoes could have used a bit more cooking time as they were not quite as soft as I would have liked, but that didn’t really bother me. The baguette was crunchy on the outside and soft and fluffy inside.
I washed my stew and bread down with a Le Fou’s brew which I will review in a future blog post so stay tuned for that!
Overall, I highly recommend trying the Tavern Beef Stew at Gaston’s Tavern. You won’t be disappointed!
