Considering that is is smack-dab in the middle of Downtown Disney, the food is surprisingly good and depending on what you order, can be healthy too. We've been here several times over the years and it's one of the places we tend to head

If this place wasn't in a "mall" it would be 4 stars for sure. The service is great, and the food is pretty good. The atmosphere is really nice, but it's in a center of tourist activity, so it's very hard to control the noise level... if you're lucky, you'll get through your meal without an overloaded Disney toddler in the room. With their parents too worn out to walk the child outside, it can definitely test your patience. We've only eaten downstairs at UVA, but the fancier Catal upstairs has a wonderful look about it, and might make for a more peaceful meal. Wines by the bottle are very reasonably priced.

I love the UVA Bar at Downtown Disney. They offer a wonderful selection of premium wines, as well as other spirits to consume. The atmosphere is fun. The bar is shaped in a circle, which makes it a great for people watching. Appetizers are also pretty good. Prices are very expensive.

as vegetarians, my husband and i are always looking for good restaurants that are worth our money and that we think our meat-eating friends and family would like, as well. catal is one of those places.

Catal Restaurant is located in Downtown Disneyland and is one of the best dining choices in that location. The delicious menu is inspired by Mediterranean flavors.

This was our first time at this restaurant located in Downtown Disney. Since it was at Disney, we had very low expectations. We ordered the duck and fish for dinner. Service was very nice and friendly. The food in general was tasty, warm and prompt. Compared to other restaurant of this scale, it seems overpriced based on the quantity served. I thought that the fish portion was very small for a Patina group restaurant. It is like that Citibank commercial with a large plate with a fluff garnish. My dish was served on a very large square plate with a single long grilled onion on top of the fish and some type of corn ragout. Also, it seems that what I got did not look like the description on the menu. Would we go back? Most likely not unless the give us a free meal. If you like duck and fish, try Sage at Newport.

Pros: No line if arrive on early bird hour

Cons: Large plate small portion

We ate on the outside patio area for dinner on a Saturday night. The outside patio area has an abbreviated menu. We ordered the marinated grapes, buffalo style chicken wings, and the turkey sandwich. My g/f and I both agreed the food was very mediocre especially considering the price. We are locals, and get the feeling the only way this place survives with such average food is because most customers are probably one-time customer tourists. Service was decent. Drinks were good. Unless you are just stopping in for a few drinks I wouldn't recommend going here. You are likely to be disappointed.

Pros: Outside patio is nice for people watching, good outside bar for drinks

Cons: Mediocre food, long wait if you want to eat inside, overpriced

Catal offers many different choices from pasta, meats, and an array of fishes. The portion size is reasonable with the price you pay ($14-30). Upstairs dining prices are slightly higher than the Uva bar below-Same food, different side choices. Make reservations early for Valentine's Day or holidays.

Not bad. Food was good and appetizing. Portions was just enough for me, but may not be for a big eater. Fair menu selection. The appetizer was interesting, but the Creme Brulee was very savory and delicious. Indoor ambience was modern. If it's nice outside, request for a table in the balcony. It's a great place to people watch. Although the service could be improved considering the money you put in. Our drinks kept coming but our server came by a couple times. Should check-up on us more frequently, don't you think?

The Uva Bar is the place to hang out while the wife and kids are over at Build a Bear next door. Build your buzz with the friendliest bartenders anywhere...nice granite bar with a good selection of wines and beer. I met some interesting people while waiting for the kid to finish picking out clothes for her bear. It's a prime people watching spot too, and at night you can have a nice drink and watch the fireworks show at Disneyland. Food is ok, they offer light fare...the pizzas are pretty good. Take my advice, if the wife and kids start running towards Build a Bear, go build yourself a good buzz at the Uva Bar.

I loved the pumpkin ravioli and the goat cheese gnocchi (5 big ones to a plate instead of 20 or so little gnocchis) and my sister loved her filet mignon on top of spinach and mashed potatoes. The ambiance was a peaceful and relaxing break amongst all the kids running around in Downtown Disney. It was romantic - and even nice even with my sister, reminded me of Italy, and had artwork and music that kept up the feeling of being in a Mediterrean villa. I recommend it for a night when you want to splurge! (it was a bit expensive)

Good to go during summer, can sit outside and see the firework while having desert. Reasonable price for great service and food. But the main dish is average, can be better.

I made reservations for this restaurant online one night. Upon my arrival, I was told that the kitchen was closing. The fact that this restaurant made reservations past its kitchen's hours is bad business. We waited twenty minutes for the dining room manager to come, who at least was gracious. He promised a great meal, but warned us that it would be rushed. He wasn't joking! The server was rude in his brusqueness.
The menu struck me as extremely simple for the price range. The special was fish with lemon vinegraitte and red peppers--easy to make. My dish was like this and the presentation didn't make up for the smaller portions. I had a small-sized fish fillet on top of one slice of potato, and about five cherry tomatoes.
I'm a firm believer that upscale restaurants can have normal-sized portions without sacrificing the presentation. This restaurant doesn't have that.

We stopped at the outside Uva Bar in Downtown Disney. It's a quaint little outdoor bar and it actually has a couple of decent beers on tap. It was nice to try a nice brew from San Fran after pretty much giving up on finding something beside BudMillerCoors elsewhere. If the weather is nice this would be a good place to take a break from the Disney hustle and bustle, to kick back, enjoy a brew and watch the people go by. My only major complaint (other than lack of selection) is the price. But hey, it is Disney.

It is almost hard to believe you are in the frenzy of the Disneyland Resort experience when you sit in the quietly charming second-floor main dining room at Catal Restaurant. Managed by chef Joachim Splichal and his Patina Restaurant…
