“A Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2011

It's part of Grande Lakes resort and off the beaten path. The service was great and the food even better. It's a casual but elegant restaurant that is part of the golf resort.

“A wonderful Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2011

My wife and I went there for dinner last Monday and it was excellent. It was a rainy evening at a slow time so when we arrived they asked if I was Mr. B. We had the only reservation it seems. Of course we had the best table and a very attentive waiter who was quite knowledgeable. We had a tasty dinner with calamari and onion soup as our appetizers and salmon and filet as our entrees. Everything was delicious and we had a panoramic view of the north-south golf course.

“Hidden gem of the Orlando/Disney restaurant scene.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2010

This unassuming restaurant sits in the back of the golf clubhouse. The generic decor gives the impression that it has nothing special to offer... but that couldn't be further from the truth. This was hands down the best meal I've had in Orlando in at least two years (and we eat out a lot - mostly at the parks). Started with the onion soup, served in an actual onion. Then I got the caprese salad. And I finished with the lamb. Each round was incredible. My dinner companions' food was just as delicious! If you are staying at the Villas of Grand Cypress or nearby, do yourself a favor and eat dinner here. The prices are up there, but completely worth it. So, so good.
