    6th trip to WDW staying contemp, no kids just hubby and me, have 3 dinner res for last night Jiko, Cali grill, Artist pt...also want to head to dwntown dis for some last minute shopping, only keep one, which do you recomend for romance, relax and good food

    Hi, Beth!  You've got three great restaurants on your list, and I love them all for various reasons.  If I had to choose just one, however, it would be Jiko.  My husband and I try to make it to Jiko for each wedding anniversary, because we find the food delicious, the atmosphere relaxing, and the location so romantic!

    When we dine at Jiko, we try to arrive a little bit early, and take a stroll hand in hand out to the savannah to see the animals.  We arrive for our dining reservation, and usually enjoy one of the African wines you'll find there.  We think the food here is amazing, and while my husband likes to try something new each visit, my mouth is watering as I type, just thinking about the filet mignon and macaroni and cheese.  Yummy!

    After dinner, we may head back out to sit in a rocking chair, holding hands, and enjoying the African story tellers, or we'll grab some night vision goggles and check out the animals again.  Another thing we enjoy is grabbing a night cap or a cup of tea or specialty coffee at Victoria Falls, the lounge that overlooks Boma.

    Have a wonderful time at whichever restaurant you choose!
