No. 2 out of 10, the Walt Disney World Resort restaurant remains the only Florida restaurant on the illustrious list. Victoria & Albert’s also is a AAA Five-Diamond Award winner, under the helm of Executive Chef Scott Hunnel, Chef de Cuisine Aimee Rivera, maître d hotel Israel Perez and Executive Pastry Chef Erich Herbitschek.
In 2016 the award-winning dining room added a Chef’s Degustation Menu, a series of 10 small courses, along with the seven-course Chef’s Tasting Menu. The smaller Queen Victoria Room offers a 10-course menu paired with exclusive wines from the restaurant’s impressive cellar, and there is a Chef’s Table for up to eight guests in the kitchen.
TripAdvisor branded sites make up the largest travel community in the world, according to the website, with more than 250 million reviews and opinions covering accommodations, restaurants and attractions. Award winners were determined using an algorithm that took into account the quantity and quality of reviews for restaurants around the world, gathered over a 12-month period.
