Came back to the hotel late but was kind of hungry. Mara was open late. We just grabbed a couple pre packed items but thought the menu looked good enough for a quick lunch on our off day. When we went back we were greeted by a most friendly and helpful lady who made some awesome suggestions on the menu.... More

We have stayed at the Animal Kingdom Lodge numerous times, and we always make sure to hit up the Mara. The breakfast is typical american breakfast, but it's good. You can't go wrong with a good ol' bounty platter. But the reason I love this QS more than others is because of the lunch and dinner offerings. The African Stew... More

For our trip with Dining Plan we ate breakfast here 3 times. The bounty platter and waffle platters were good. My 12 year old loved the breakfasts. Definitely plenty of food, and they were good with taking the tomatoes off our pap and tomatoes; just grits then. Food quality and quantity is in line with other quick service. Cashiers were...

I have some dietary proplems and needed special tweaks to my food everyday and the kitchen staff were extremly willing to do whatever they could to acommadate... More

Ate there once, typical cafeteria food. You wait in line, place your order with a n employee, and are given a pager that lights up when your food is ready to be picked up. Attempted to eat there a second time. Immediately after placing our order, my wife told the woman who took our order that we were going to... More

This is a typical Disney quick service. Really busy. Beautiful location. The food is the same quality as one would find at other quick service locations. Spacious enough and lots of seating. Some African inspired accents on the dishes, including the breakfast platters.

This is a very busy restaurant and we found ourselves a bit confused how to get the meal we were to get as a quick serve. The food was about right for a counter service restaurant. Not special, but good. However, we were a bit confused what we allowed to get because there was no help available in the self... More

It's just okay, not really anything to write home about. Foods average, like a cafeteria. But better priced then the other two onsite resaurants, which are over the top priced.

We had been booked at Saana but the boss was not feeling 100% so that we elected to cancel and see what the cafeteria known as Mara had to offer ... I had the flat bread pizza (pepperoni and cheese) and we also shared a simple cheeseburger and fries ...all to go ... (don't forget to ask for to go... More
