One of the best parts of going on vacation is experiencing different types of food and restaurants. And like other destination locations, Universal Orlando Resort offers great food options for families.
Whether you want to pick up a quick breakfast, have a light lunch, enjoy a yummy treat, or even sit down for a gourmet meal, CityWalk, the onsite Loews hotels, and the parks have a lot of delicious cuisine available for you.
Food Options at CityWalk and Inside the Parks
Fine Dining. Inside the park, you will find nicer sit-down restaurants like Lombard's Seafood Grill (in Universal Studios Florida) and Mythos (in Islands of Adventure) that often require reservations.
Casual Dining. Not quite as fancy, but equally as delicious are places like Confisco Grille (close to the entrance in Islands of Adventure).
Quick-Serve Restaurants. If you're looking for fast and/or less expensive, both parks have lots of options. You do not need reservations for these types of restaurants. Consider taking advantage of their family meal plan, which could save you up to 30% if you buy the dining plan in advance. Click here to learn more.
