Some are cheap, some are expensive – most are very, very reasonable. These are MY favourites and will obviously not be to everyone’s taste. The beauty of Orlando is that there is SO MUCH choice.

  2. Citrico’s at the Grand Floridian
  3. Bahama Breeze
  4. Café Tu Tu Tango
  5. Tony Roma’s
  6. Kobé
  7. Rainforest Café
  8. Moon Fish
  9. Fishbones
  10. Red Lobster

and here are five others, because I couldn’t resist –

  • Sweet Tomatoes
  • The Melting Pot
  • Panera Bread
  • Roy’s
  • Landry’s Seafood


Breakfast at Perkins in the Crossroads Center

One day, I would love to dine at Victoria & Albert’s – probably the most expensive restaurant in Orlando. Located at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort, it’s one of the best restaurants in the whole of America.
