*This dining experience took place in August 2015.
Olivia’s, located at Disney’s Old Key West Resort, is a great quiet and cozy dining location. I often dine here for breakfast when I’m looking for something easy and quick. And, I loved the super chill and relaxed vibe here. Recently, I stopped by for dinner and checked out the allergy friendly menu they now have at the restaurant.
The last several times I’ve been here for lunch or dinner, I’ve ordered the Mallory Square Cobb Salad which has shrimp and crab on it and is insanely delicious. I was craving this again but oddly noticed it wasn’t on the allergy friendly menu. I was able to talk to one of the chefs there who confirmed it could be made gluten free.
While waiting for my salad, I was brought Udi’s Gluten Free rolls (most locations carry the GNI Brand rolls, so it was surprising to see these) with Earth Balance vegan margarine. The rolls were a bit tough, so I didn’t eat too much of them.
My salad, on the other hand, was so delicious. Filled with avocado, bacon, tomato, chopped egg, crab, and shrimp and topped with a key lime vinaigrette, it was very fresh and flavorful. Perfect for a hot Florida summer evening. This salad continues to rank high on my favorite Disney salad list, so it’s one I will definitely order again.
Overall, I enjoyed my meal at Olivia’s. Next time, I hope to try some of the other dinner entrees served there. If you’re a DVC member, don’t forget to show your member ID for 10% off.
