If your travels this spring have you venturing to the theme park capital of the world, you might be surprised to learn that this city also holds its own in the culinary department as well. The following best restaurants in Orlando will rank up there with the attractions you visit as the highlight of your trip here…

1) Luma on Park

Nothing gives a new restaurant more steam than being endorsed by a celebrity. Luma on Park was the happy beneficiary of this boost when none other than Paul McCartney ate at this Winter Park establishment in the recent past.

Specializing in seafood, Luma shines in this niche despite being located inland from the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts, and while you might think that sampling locally caught swordfish might be beyond your budget, be aware that Luma on Park offers a fixed price menu for $35 from Sunday through Thursday nights, making the act of dining here attainable for those astute enough to budget for this splurge.

2) California Grill

If you are here to help your adult children show your grand kids around the grounds of Walt Disney World, you might think that a decent dining experience would not be in the cards during your time here.

One shouldn’t doubt the commitment of this park to high quality in all of its operations, which is why we won’t hesitate to recommend that you should sit down to dinner at the California Grill at least once during your stay in Orlando.

Offering an inspired view of Cinderella’s Castle and Seven Seas Lagoon, the constantly rotating selection of regional dishes and a wine list that includes more than 300 choices for those with a discerning palate, you will find it hard to believe that such a fine dining establishment can be found on the grounds of one of the world’s top destinations for families.

3) Cask & Larder

While you may be getting on in your years, you might like to stay on the cutting edge of food trends. If this sounds like you, then stopping into the Cask & Larder for lunch or dinner will prove to be a wise decision.

From craft beer brewed on site to custom-cured meats, meals here have an air of authenticity that is often missing at many restaurants in the USA these days. The overall focus of the cuisine here is American Southern, so if you are seeking a plate of food that will overwhelm your taste buds with a symphony of flavours, all while keeping you full until much later in the day, you will enjoy your time at the Cask & Larder.
