Downtown Disney District
Fine/Signature Dining, Table Service, Reservations Accepted
An ever-changing menu of upscale seasonal fare offers a fine dining experience in the heart of the Downtown Disney District. Under the leadership of chef–restaurateur Joachim Splichal, the illustrious Patina Restaurant Group delivers the concept of Catal, where modern interpretations of classic Mediterranean specialties are sure to satisfy even the most discerning of appetites.
Luxuriate in the modern, airy dining room or enjoy a panoramic second-story view of the promenade from Catal’s alfresco terrace as you browse a well-curated selection of delicious grilled seafood, choice meats and the freshest salad entrées. On select nights, you may be able to catch a glimpse of the Disneyland Park fireworks from the patio.
In the mood for a bon vivant breakfast? Catal serves epicurean brunch fare made with thoughtfully sourced ingredients until 11:00 AM. The restaurant also features a children’s menu complete with fun games and puzzles, making Catal a suitable destination for families.
Artfully presented plates featuring fresh flavors from the Iberian peninsula take your taste buds on a whirlwind tour.
Tapas and small plates perfect for sharing allow adventurous eaters to sample a variety of Spanish classics updated with California and world influences. Scallop sashimi, goat cheese-stuffed piquillo peppers, Catalan-style olives and charcuterie plates featuring free-range Iberian ham and Manchego are at once rustic and refined.
Hand-rolled pasta with lamb and Calabrian chilies and lobster and chorizo paella offer a quintessential taste of Spain while specialties such as suckling pig with tart apples and braised veal with crispy sweetbreads showcase the chef’s innovative flair. Seasonal market fish, roasted half chicken and succulent prime rib are among the more traditional favorites, though the menu changes frequently to reflect the seasons as well as the very best ingredients the world market has to offer.
The dessert selection also changes often, offering the potential for a sweet surprise on every visit! Try Catal’s house-made-daily ice creams and sorbets, the crunchy hazelnut and chocolate “Kit-Kat” cake, arroz con leche with salted caramel sauce or the chestnut-cherry gâteaux Basque.
Catal features an extensive wine list and handcrafted cocktails, including organic and gluten-free libations and has the honored distinction of being a winner of the Wine Spectator Restaurant Award.
All menu items are subject to change without notice.
Enjoy a more casual dining experience downstairs from Catal, where you can choose from indoor or outdoor seating. With a full bar, premium draft beers, over 40 wines by the glass, tasty tapas and daily happy hours, Uva Bar is the perfect place to convene for conversation and good times.
Soak up some rays at the circular open-air bar, where metro-station architecture inspired by the 1920s Jazz Age, including 3 towering martini glass sculptures, offers a unique backdrop with people-watching opportunities aplenty. Meet friends or make new ones over share plates like mojo pork corn arepas and Catal’s signature Uva street fries, loaded with chorizo Bilbao, spicy crema, cheese curds and even a fried egg, upon request. Gourmet salads, sides, burgers and house-made desserts are also served.
