Tiffins Restaurant opened a few years ago at Disney's Animal Kingdom and instantly became one of my favorite restaurants on property! The restaurant itself is beautiful and the menu has some unique dishes but still offers something to cater to everyone's tastes. It is located on Discovery Island right before you cross the path into Pandora so it's easy to get to from a lot of the park. Tiffins is classified as Signature Dining (two credits on the Disney Dining Plan) and offers Festival of the Lion King and Rivers of Light dining packages.
I like to start every visit here with a trip to the Nomad Lounge, attached and to the left of the entrance. This is a stop worth checking out on its own with great attention to detail for the traveling nomad. They offer small plates and a variety of specialty cocktails. They also offer wine, beer and non-alcoholic specialties as well. The bartenders here are always wonderful and helped me pick out a drink. Not pictured here, but the Hightower Rocks is also one of my favorites!

While this is a Signature Restaurant so prices are on the higher side, we felt that it was a good value for the quality of food we received. They do take Tables in Wonderland and the Disney Dining Plan.
