Hidden-Gem Resort Restaurants in Orlando's Tourism District
Hemisphere Restaurant at Hyatt Regency Orlando International Airport
Led by Executive Chef Jefferey Powell, Hemisphere at Hyatt Regency Orlando International Airport focuses on robust, international flavors; seasonal, local ingredients; and careful pairings of select wines and cocktails. The restaurant also features incredible, panoramic views of Orlando International Airport and the surrounding landscape.
Tabla Restaurant at Clarion Inn & Suites Orlando
Tabla at Clarion Inn & Suites Orlando presents a symphony of Indian, Chinese and Thai flavors, with dishes designed to delight neophytes and connoisseurs alike. What's more, their ambience, service and presentation are every bit as good as the food, all of which earned them a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Award in 2016.
The Chef's Table at The Edgewater and The Tasting Room
Located inside The Historic Edgewater Hotel in Winter Garden, about 25 minutes from Disney, this is technically two restaurants in one. In the main dining room, enjoy an ever-changing, three-course, prix-fixe meal with optional wine pairings. Also on the premises, The Tasting Room features small plates, cocktails, beer, wine and entertainment.

Hidden-Gem Resort Restaurants in Downtown Orlando & Winter Park
The Boheme at Grand Bohemian Hotel Orlando
The Grand Bohemian Hotel is arguably downtown Orlando's most prestigious hotel, and its onsite restaurant has much to do with its refined reputation. Like the hotel itself, The Boheme is tastefully decorated with an eclectic array of art. More to the point, Chef Laurent Hollaender and his staff present deliciously inventive takes on classic dishes, such as Colorado Lamb T-Bone and Beef Tenderloin Au Poivre.
