Eating Out and Eating In Around Champions Gate
We were very pleasantly surprised at the variety of eating out choices we had within 5 minutes of our Ashley Manor home. What was even better was that most of them would deliver if we were too tired to go out again in the evening.
It was not just take-away Pizza, but crepes, gourmet meals, Italian and Chinese. Within walking distance we could collect, or have delivered, fish and chips, pizza or fried chicken.
To start on the up-market, but not up-priced side, the Omni is well worth a visit. This imposing hotel sits in the middle of the golf courses and you can watch the play as you sit in David’s Restaurant. We particularly enjoyed the Italian Restaurant, which has a stately décor but is staffed by very friendly waiters. The flatbreads there are wonderful. The staff are also more than happy for a party to share the generous proportioned pizzas and flatbreads. I think their Key Lime Pie is the best I have ever had and the other deserts were equally decadent.
Their Pool Restaurant is very relaxed and serves a variety of food. David’s Restaurant has a more traditional menu and is a relaxing place to sit.
Within the Champions Gate Shopping Area there are 3 great restaurants. You can sit outside the Italian and French Restaurants but they also have room inside. The “small” pizza in the Italian Restaurant is large even by Italian standards. The rest of the menu is good standard Italian fare.
The French Restaurant was our favourite because it not only served sweet and savoury crepes but also gourmet meals. They also have speciality nights on the third Thursday of each month, which feature the wines and food of a particular area of France. This is quite a small place but with a good atmosphere and personal service from the owners. Definitely recommended either to eat in or to have the food delivered to your villa.
The Chinese Restaurant came strongly recommended but we did not manage to fit this one in. It has an extensive menu and the owners are in the process of opening another restaurant on the 192.
The final choice was home delivery or take away from the Chevron Garage/Convenience Store just 5 minutes walk away. They cater for the English market, both in terms of getting English newspapers and in providing fish and chips! This stays open until 11 o’clock so there is no problem if you feel peckish later.
