International Drive is home to some of Orlando’s favourite places to eat.
Popular choices here include Bahama Breeze (8849 International Drive, plus several other outlets in the city), which is known for its tropical decor and Caribbean-style comfort food.
Nearby, Miller Ale House (8963 International Drive) is a friendly sports bar and restaurant with generous portions and a wide beer selection that will have you umming and ahhing.
At the higher end of the dining scale is The Ravenous Pig (1234 North Orange Avenue), a name that crops up a lot when people talk about the best restaurant in Orlando. Its seasonally changing menu relies on local produce, with classic dishes including Florida black grouper with a lemon-pepper rub and pork porterhouse with a peach barbecue glaze.
A much-loved Orlando institution, Lee and Ricks Oyster Bar (5621 Old Winter Garden Road), is well worth a visit to sample local seafood at very reasonable prices. When it first opened in 1950, it served only oysters, but later branched out to include shrimp and Cajun-style crawfish.
If your budget can stretch to it, try Victoria & Albert’s at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa (4401 Floridian Way). This restaurant combines modern American cooking with globetrotting ingredients such as Italian truffles and Japanese beef. You won’t forget the famed Colorado bison in a hurry, that’s for sure.
Food served on-site in the theme parks is often extortionately priced. You’re allowed to bring your own food and drink, so why not take a picnic?
Whether it’s a quick nightcap or some late-night dancing to follow your meal, you can find out what’s available on our Orlando nightlife page.
