As you can see this is quite a big list and should cover all sorts of likes and dislikes!
We can strongly recommend Chatham’s Place at Sand Lake; simply wonderful food, the finest we have eaten in Florida. They get booked up extremely quickly.
We have also eaten at Ocean Prime, very good food although the restaurant needs to be full to get the best atmosphere. If you’re fond of Crème Brullee they do a very tasty one!
Chez Vincent at Winter Park is a lovely bistro and is located in where there is lots of hustle and bustle in the surrounding bars and restaurants. It’s worth a detour to visit this area, it shows Orlando as it used to be as it’s where the wealthy used to vacation and own homes, and there is some amazing architecture with a very European feel. You can always make a day of it and visit the Morse Museum at Winter Park and check out the Tiffany Collection, take a walk round the lake or a boat ride and then head off for a tasty French meal.
We’ve also tried the Taverna Opa which as you would guess from the name serves Greek food. They serve an excellent hummus and a most delicious pudding, although not for those who are watching their calorie count! (But who does on holiday! ) It’s a very lively restaurant with belly dancers and loud music.
