Five favourite places to eat
Here are my five favourite places to eat in the Orlando area. Victoria and Albert at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort
This is certainly not an every day sort of restaurant but it is absolutely perfect for a very special occasion. The food is fantastic and the service is exemplary. When you book your table (and booking is recommended) you will be asked if you have any special dietary requirements so that your menu can be tailor made to suit you. There are about seven courses in the meal and a different wine can be ordered for each course. Don’t plan to be driving anywhere after your meal here! The Cheesecake Factory at the Mall at Millenia
Although this restaurant is worth visiting for its cheesecakes alone, it is a great place for a meal before, or after, the serious business of shopping at the Mall at Millenia. Every meal I have had there has been delicious and the service is always excellent. You can also just stop off and have a drink, but it would be a shame to pass up the chance of a tasty meal in a wonderful bustling atmosphere. They have fantastic salads, burgers, steaks, pasta and seafood and the portions are enormous. Café Tu Tu Tango on International Drive
It is easy to miss this restaurant as it is set back from the road and slightly obscured, but it is well worth the effort to find it. It is similar to a tapas bar, where you order lots of small dishes and share them amongst your group, and it has the added attraction of having artists in residence demonstrating their work while you eat. All around the walls of the restaurant they have the work of a wide selection of local artists on display. The art work is available to buy if any particular piece takes your fancy. The staff are friendly, welcoming, helpful and knowledgeable. Longhorn Steakhouse
I will admit that steak is not my favourite dish, but I do love the steaks which are served here at the Longhorn Steakhouse - particularly the melt in the mouth Flo’s Filet with baked sweet potato. Mmmmm, lovely. Although there is a great selection of steaks available, there are plenty of other things to choose from if you are not a lover of red meat. The portions are huge and it is quite a challenge to clear your plate. They also offer a good selection of appetisers and desserts. Market Street Café, Celebration
This place is great at any time of the day – breakfast, lunch or evening meal. It has a great location on the opposite side of the road from the lake and if it’s not too hot it is nice to sit at one of the outside tables for an even better view of the lake. The inside of the Café has a rather retro look with a selection of tables or booths. The menu is varied and there is something on it for every one what ever time of day you choose to visit.
