Description: Hemisphere offers an active, upbeat environment that engages guests' senses. Executive Chef Jeffrey Powell's seasonal menus feature hand-crafted dishes that infuse fresh, local ingredients with modern world flavors. Hemisphere also features an incredible wine selection and cuvees. We are located on the ninth floor of the Hyatt Regency Orlando International Airport with convenient access to downtown Orlando, the Interstate 4 business and tourism corridor, as well as the neighboring Lake Nona community. Hemisphere will be open for breakfast, dinner and special events. A great place to dine or relax before/after your flight or with complimentary valet parking, it's an unexpected but excellent option for Orlando & Lake Nona area residents!

“Excellent place to have breakfast. You will pay for this but we found it worthwhile!”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

The Hyatt at Orlando International Airport is a great place to stay! There are two nice places to eat on the premises: Hemisphere for a terrific breakfast and McCoy for a good well prepared dinner. The food quality and service in both restaurants is excellent! The prices for the breakfast are a little high but the food quality makes it worthwhile. Hemisphere is nice quiet place to eat with comfortable tables. The food is very well prepared. We did the buffet which has unusually good quality for a buffet. The food stays hot too! Believe me if you wander around the mall in Orlando International you will not find better places to eat than Hemisphere.

“High Quality Airport Food”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

When was the last time you had a nourishing meal in an airport? When was the last time you had an expansive view, courteous service, organic and local foods available in an airport restaurant? The Hemisphere Restaurant, on the 9th floor of the Hyatt Regency Hotel in the Orlando Airport (MCO), is a revelation. Serving a la carte or buffet style breakfast fulfilled my family's morning nutritional needs in every way and set us on our way for a long day of travel and adventure. Sure, it costs more than that coffee shop or fast food chain downstairs, but do any of them offer an all you can eat buffet for $16? Can your child get pancakes with REAL Vermont maple syrup? Can you get cage free eggs in the food court? Can you get local fare like grits, or shrimp omelettes? Hemisphere does this all with aplomb and grace. Recommended above all other airport dining experiences ever...except the sister restaurant in the same hotel/airport as Hemisphere called McCoy's Bar & Grill. But more on them in my next review...

“Breakfast first rate and a great view”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

We enjoyed the buffet breakfast. It had both hot and cold offerings including eggs, cold meats, pancakes, bacon and sausage, French toasts, cereals, muffins, oatmeal, fresh fruit, etc.. All of the food offerings were very good and the servers were kept full. You can enjoy additional trips to the buffet as you want. Wait staff was highly attentive. We had a window seat which allowed us to watch the planes taking off and landing. It goes get morning sun.
