The 9 Best Restaurants In Orlando, Florida


Domu in East End Market is trendy and sleek with whitewashed brick walls, bright paintings, and edgy fittings. House-made noodles and slow-cooked broths make this ramen great.

Reyes Mezcaleria

Oaxacan restaurant Reyes Mezcaleria is popular downtown. A citrus-cured snapper and shrimp ceviche or Oaxaca cheese queso fundido are good starters. Continue sharing elotes, tamales, or fish tacos or get a platos fuerte.


Capa, a trendy Spanish restaurant on the 17th level of the Four Seasons Resort Orlando, with a large terrace and stunning views. Try preserved meats, Spanish cheeses, and quince-stuffed foie gras.

Pizza Bruno

Since it started as a food cart, this Conway pizza west of downtown has attracted customers from all over. Personal-sized wood-fired pizzas are somewhat smokey and bubbly.

Knife & Spoon

With a modest entry off the lobby of The Ritz-Carlton Grand Lakes, Orlando, the restaurant welcomes you with a vast open kitchen, windows, and a stunning ceiling that looks like a geode split and open with dim light.

Kabooki Sushi

Much of the restaurant's fresh fish comes from Tokyo's Toyosu market and Spain. The 15- to 18-course omakase menu is the most popular special-occasion tasting. Make no mistake with maguro, hamachi toro, hotategai, or saba. 

The Ravenous Pig

Start with a charcuterie or cheese board (all cured in-house), deviled eggs, or Gruyère biscuits, then local green salads. North African lamb pita sandwiches, hangar steak, shrimp and grits, and smoked pork chop with lemon-caper sauce are main courses.

Tori Tori

Japanese izakaya restaurant yakitori is created with care. The yakitori skewers are made with overnight-brined organic free-range chicken. The special flavor comes from grilling everything over binchotan charcoal from Japan.

Wine Bar George

Wine Bar George, a wine-focused restaurant in Disney Springs' The Landing, with rustic wood tables and bottles stacked high over the centerpiece bar in a gorgeous brick building. Since wine is the priority, the menu is small.
