For anyone about to head out, this is where we ate...
Outback Steakhouse, Vineland Rd?, opposite the Premium Outlets - great food, great service, great value, loved it, ate there twice.
Bahama Breeze, Int. Drive, just north of 'Wonderworks' (the upside down building!) same side of road - As above and again ate there twice. Always busy and usually a wait for a table but grab a seat on the 'deck/bar' area if you can and if there's a long wait for a table you can always have drinks and order an appetizer from the 'deck' menu and if, like us, your table is ready sooner than expected, they'll transfer everything to your dinner table for you.
Magiannos, Int. Drive, at Pointe Orlando next door to 'Wonderworks' -excellent Italian. Wished we'd had longer to linger but we had tickets to the cinema just behind the restaurant that night.
Sci-Fi Diner in MGM Studios. Really cool. set out like a 1950's American movie drive-in. Eat your meal in cars. Need to book in advance though but you can do it first thing when you get to the park. Good food but it's the experience your going for.
Hard Rock Cafe, Universal Citywalk. Average food. Usual Hard Rock stuff. There was a crowd of us so atmosphere suited us that night.
Le Celier Steakhouse, EPCOT - fantastic. The only place we ate at with sensible portion sizes. I actually cleared my plate! Very good value for the quality of meal we had. 4 entrees, 2 deserts & drinks here cost the same as 4 entrees and drinks at Hard Rock. There was no comparison in quality. Le Celier wins hands down.
310 Park South, Park Avenue, Winter Park - had Sunday Brunch here. What a great change of pace and excellent food. I can thoroughly recommend the 'california scramble'!
Planet Hollywood, Downtown Disney - food very good but the place is getting a bit tired looking (the exterior is currently being refurbished) and there can be up to a 3 HOUR wait for a table at busy times. I had bought a $10 voucher which promised next available table and the $10 off your bill. Seemed like a no brainer. The night we went the wait was an hour and a half but we only waited 20 minutes so that was ok, but you do feel like you're being 'processed'. No cheery waiting staff here with a chat about what you did today etc. etc. No..sadly, here they just want you in and out as quickly as possible. Our boys ordered draught beer then complained (in the nicest possible way!) that it tasted flat and stale. Our waitress nodded and replied that 'people who regularly drink draught beer and knew their beers, like their Irish barman, often said the same but most people really didn't know any different and seemed happy to drink it!' She almost said it like they knew there was a problem but like - hey! only about 25% of people noticed so they didn;t consider it a real problem and she was more than happy to switch their drinks to a couple of bottled beers but she seemed to be kind of missing the point! With so many dining options in Orlando, I'd give this one a miss.
Overall we found all the portions (except Le Celier) way more than was healthy to eat but no-one says you have to clear your plate!
They always seemed to overestimate the wait time for a table so you were never disappointed. In many cases when they said 40 minutes, a table was available in 20.
