Florida Guide > Dining
These are my top ten most favourite restaurants and I am sure everyone has there own favourite but these are mine and it is a dead cert that we will revisit them each time we go to Florida, all but one are central with just one being an hour away on the lovely Cocoa Beach. So here goes….In no particular orderJ
1.Number one has to be Carrabbass Italian Grill and this particular one is situated on W. Irlo Bronson Highway 192 West located next to the Formosa Gardens shopping center. Always busy but never long to wait and the service is impeccable. The open kitchen is just fascinating and the food absolutely delicious. Varied menu with daily specials, the complementary warm bread and seasoned olive oil dip is just so Moorish just leave room for everything elseJ
2.This one has to be Manney’s Chophouse which is situated on the 27 going south just passed Southern Dunes and is on the right hand side. A big favourite with the locals(always a good sign) another one which is always busy but again never too long until you get a table. They offer specials throughout the week such as Fajita nights buy one get one free, this is on Wednesdays and also kid’s eat free Monday and Tuesday. Happy hour is every day until 7pm.The food is varied and absolutely delicious and I am sure once you have tried it you will return many times.
3.The Cheesecake Factory
At the Mall Of Millennia, another great favourite and they offer more than just Cheesecake, in fact over 200 menu selections including 50 delicious Cheesecakes and deserts. Delicious food and oh so Moorish deserts, my favourite has to be their Carrot cake oohhhhh.
Situated on the 192 which is newly opened is a stunning building with beautiful décor and the food is great, varied menu and tasty food this is definatly another one to try, I can highly recommend the Goats Cheese Bruschetta (wonderful).
5.Buca di Beppo
This is situated inside the Florida Mall and is a great find, wonderful Italian food at its best with food which is meant for sharing, we always pay them a visit before we travel back to the airport and can’t wait to return.
Situated on Sand Lake Road, this is a sophisticated eateries with a wonderful atmosphere and great food and healthy to boot, every meal is less than 475 calories) not that you would ever know) .The menu changes weekly hence the name Seasons 52 a Must try.
7.Charleys steak house
This is located on Parkway blvd Kissimmee off the 192.
Delicious steaks especially the Fillet Mignion which is wonderful, a little more pricey than other restaurants but really nice for that special evening out.
Another great authentic Italian serving delicious food, extensive menu, great service and atmosphere. There are several dotted about along the 192 and there is one on Sand Lake road. Well worth a try.
9.Salsa Taqueria & Salsa Bar
This is located in the Florida mall and is a really stylish Mexican eaterie serving delicious authentic Mexican food. The Fajitas are a must, really delicious and go very nicely with a Mexican beer.
This just has to be on my list, a real American diner with huge menus and even bigger delicious breakfasts. The pancakes are the best I have ever tried and didn’t even know I liked them until I tried them here, now they are my favourite.
