Cariocas is a Brazilian themed restaurant on the newly reimagined Disney Magic. There is a backdrop of Rio at the front of the restaurant and a beautiful mural of the Three Caballeros on the main wall. The bright lanterns throughout give the restaurant a really nice feel. I started off my dinner with a piece of warm banana bread which was great. Your options for appetizers are Peruvian Causa, Empanadas Panzudas de Carne, Deep Fried Lobster Croquetas, or an Ahi Tuna and Avocado Tower. I tried the lobster croquetas and my husband’s empandas. I enjoyed both appetizers but the lobster croquetas were definitely the better of the two. Your soup or salad options are Sancocho de Pollo, Cuban Salad, Sopa de Frijoles Negroes Habaneros, or Tiger Shrimp Ceviche and Palmitos Salad. I thought the tiger shrimp ceviche was just okay. Main course offerings include Lobster, Shrimp, and Mahi Mahi Skewers, Grilled Rum Marinated Swordfish, Grilled Orange and Lemon marinated Flank Steak, Slow Roasted Pork Belly, and Jose Cariocas. I got the pork belly and was very very happy. Carioca’s Ice Cream Sundae was the recommended dessert. The sundae contained dulce de leche ice cream, caramelized apples, and churros. As you can imagine the sundae was extremely sweet. Overall, I enjoyed my meal at Cariocas. I think the restaurant is a nice addition to the Disney Magic.
