Have you heard of Amare, the new Mediterranean restaurant at Walt Disney World Swan Reserve, the new sister hotel of Swan and Dolphin resort?
We were invited to dine there and we loved our experience. With a name meaning “to love”, guests will fall for this casual upscale venue inspired by the Mediterranean region cultures and tastes. Amare’s menu highlights fresh local premium ingredients, a variety of seafood, citrus, olive oils, pasta and pitas.
At Amare you can find a Wine Wall featuring Mediterranean-based wines with selections from across the region.
Here is an inside look of the new menu items at Amare:
