Orlando is known for its cuisine of many different kinds including New American, Italian, and Japanese. Here is a list of our favorites that are located close to all of our vacation homes!

Located in Disney Springs, The Boathouse is one of our favorites with its ambiance, food and scenery. With a raw bar, fresh seafood and other options, this restaurants has something for everyone. The New American cuisine sets itself apart by using only the freshest ingredients. With the perfect location in Disney Springs, you can make a night out of visiting this wonderful restaurant.

We also love Fresco Cucina Italiana which proves to be one of Orlando’s best. Located right off of Sandlake Road, this hidden gem is where all the locals go to eat. The fresh pasta, pizza and paninis are a match made in heaven at Fresco. Mildly priced with great food turns out to be one of our favorites.

Lastly, if you’re craving sushi, you must try Amura Japanese Restaurant, located right on Sandlake. The sushi here is some of the freshest that Orlando has to offer and serves up tasty combos daily. Although, if sushi isn’t your forte, this restaurant doubles as a hibachi where you can get fried rice and much more…all cooked in front of you!
