My husband and I recently moved to Orlando and we have been eating "around the world" at the various restaurants at Disney and in town. This is a restaurant not to be missed. The food was the best we have had yet, and service exceptional. Atmosphere is warm and stylish - definitely more of an adult restaurant.
I was quite impressed at the extent of their gluten-free options. We eat gluten-free by preference, but typically find the gluten-free menus to be very pared down. At Jiko, we had a wide variety of excellent choices. My husband ordered the wild boar appetizer, which was delicious and melted in our mouths. His entree was the Pepper Steak and he actually had to put his head down to pause once he tasted it because of the delicious flavors that he wanted to savor. I had the short ribs without the spicy sauce and both of our dishes were clearly designed for the flavors of the accompanying purees and vegetables to compliment the main entree. When eaten together in one bite they were absolutely fantastic.
I highly recommend this restaurant. We are considering a return trip to try their Thanksgiving price-fixe dinner in November. As other reviewers have stated, it can be quite a pricey dinner - for two of us with appetizers, entree and dessert without alcohol it came to $80 per person before tip.
