Amatista at the Sapphire Falls Resort in Orlando had wonderful service. The host and wait staff were friendly without being overbearing. The restaurant was very nicely decorated, and we got a table by the window which had amazing views while it was light.

We had a huge lunch in the park, so we only ordered appetizers for dinner which included Queso Fundido, Island Crab Cakes, and Street Tacos.

The queso was amazing. Flavorful without being too spicy. The blue corn chips served with it were fresh, and hardy enough to use with the dip.

The crab cakes and street tacos were a bit disappointing. The crab cakes were cooked perfectly with a nice crunchy exterior, but they just didn’t have much taste. Even with the cilantro-lime aioli they were just bland.

The same can be said of the street tacos. Very bland on their own. We actually added some of the queso which helped tremendously.

The bread service was outstanding! In particular the Portuguese cornbread. It was like eating cake. Delicious! If we could have nothing else to eat, we would choose that.

In all fairness, the server told us they were known for their steaks, and we didn’t get steak. We definitely decided we will be back to try the steak, and get more of that cornbread!

very much enjoyed the breakfast buffet here, but even more so, I enjoyed watching the attention to detail they gave in handling the special allergy needs of several members of our party. Despite the challenges, each had a very complete and tasty breakfast. We chose to dine outside, and what a pleasant environment it was!

Great breakfast, had an excellent server Clifton. Really helpful and attentive. The buffet had a large selection and the best part is the fresh OJ.

The food was amazing and decent prices but what set this restaurant apart from the others was the fantastic service. Our server Clifton was one of the best servers I’ve ever had anywhere and made me want to return for every meal. We were even visited and talked to by both managers as well. We will definitely be back again!
