Orlando is a great town to visit for the beaches, Disney World, the culture and most assuredly the food. Regardless of whether you’re in Orlando for a short stay or for a long time to come, you should make sure and dine at some of these premiere restaurants. They are all renowned for their excellent food and atmosphere, and the last one is perfect for families on vacation.

Moonfish:

This restaurant is one of the more well-known establishments in the area, and diners can pick from the freshest seafood and some great aged steaks. In addition, they have sushi, sashimi and a raw bar for oysters. No matter what you are in the mood for, there is something for you at Moonfish. They have a 24 oz. Prime Ribeye that is delicious and intimidatingly gigantic, and the Almond Fried Lobster Tails are exquisite. The restaurant is located just minutes from the Disney World Theme Park, so if you are on vacation there, this is just a quick ride away.

La Coquina Chef’s Table:

This restaurant offers visitors the unique experience of actually dining inside the kitchen. You can sit and watch while the chefs prepare elaborate and delicious meals right in front of you. La Coquina offers a 7 course meal that changes daily, and they have a fantastic selection of wines to accompany any meal. This restaurant is a particularly fun place to go on a date, as the chefs provide an element of entertainment, though the atmosphere manages to retain a pleasingly intimate setting, enabling you to have a quiet conversation as you watch your food being cooked.

The Boheme:

Located in the luxury hotel, The Grand Bohemian, this AAA Four-Diamond restaurant is the perfect setting for any sort of nice meal. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, and their “power breakfast” is a well-kept secret of locals from Orlando. There is also a Sunday Jazz Brunch, which is a particularly fun experience (Sundays 10:30am – 2:30pm). They also offer a special menu for children, so families are most assuredly welcome.

Del Frisco’s:

This renowned steakhouse has become a recognizable name throughout the country. The family owned restaurant has been serving up some of Florida’s best food since 1993. Some of the more enticing items are the fresh baked break, the Australian lobster tails, the USDA Prime corn-fed beef, and of course, the 6,500 bottles of wine that they have in their cellar. Del Frisco’s has been voted as “Extraordinary” by the Zagat guide since 1997, Best Steakhouse in Orlando by CitySearch 2009, and Maxim Magazine voted it one of the 10 best steak houses in America.

Chef Mickey’s:

If you are looking for a great place to take the kids (that has food you’ll like too), look no further than Chef Mickey’s. Mickey and his whole gang of friends are there, and the atmosphere is light hearted and fun. They suggest making a reservation in advance; especially if you are planning a celebratory get together with lots of people. Dinner for the adults includes items like roasted chicken, carved beef, and food for the kids like macaroni and cheese. There is also a sundae bar, which everyone will be sure to enjoy.
