Downtown Disney – Catal sits at the center of Downtown Disney, across from its sister restaurant, facing the central plaza. To find this quiet dining spot, head toward the outdoor Uva Bar. Catal is on the corner nearby, next to Marceline’s Confectionary.

Catal is a Mediterranean-inspired dining spot overlooking Downtown Disney. Guests can choose from a selection of meat dishes, veggie dishes, and paella, and enjoy a cocktail while perched above the center plaza of Downtown Disney.
MY RATING: ★★★★☆
I thought the food was pretty good, just not as awesome as I expected it to be given the prices. The atmosphere is great, and the second story balcony is perfect for enjoying the view of Downtown Disney and people-watching. So overall,Catal is one of the better restaurants in Downtown Disney, and I’d recommend this spot to anyone thinking about giving it a try.
- Garlic Fries
- Steakhouse Burger
Uva Bar, though technically a separate dining option, is part of Catal. The two restaurants share a kitchen, and Uva even bears the name “Catal” on the bar and menu.
This is actually one of the smallest restaurants in Downtown Disney, having seating only on the second floor and on its narrow balcony patio.
