Orlando, Florida is full of fun, excitement, and adventure. Visitors come from all over the world to enjoy world-class theme parks like Disney World®, LEGOLAND®, and Universal Studios Florida®. Plus, you can’t get enough of the Florida sunshine. However, you will need to eat sooner or later, and when you’re ready to check out some local restaurants, consider these three suggestions from our crew at Carl’s Van Rentals.

1. Luma on Park

Open for dinner seven nights a week, Luma on Park takes pride in offering original menu options sourced from local ingredients. Their menu features small plates like St. Augustine Softshell Crab and Roast Carrot Salad or main dishes like Green Garlic Stuffed Chicken. You can also spend some time at their lounge sipping cocktails or sampling their extensive wine list.

2. Ravenous Pig

You’ll feel like a ravenous pig after one glimpse of this Orlando-area restaurant’s menu. Since opening in 2007, the Ravenous Pig has garnered much acclaim for its locally sourced and inspired dishes like Steak Frites, Canaveral Shrimp N’ Grits, and much more. This restaurant is located in Winter Park, FL, and you’ll definitely want to get a reservation due to its popularity.

3. California Grill

If you’re looking for a restaurant within Disney, we recommend that you check out California Grill at the Contemporary Resort. Not only does the restaurant have a great wine list and fine-dining options like Sonoma goat cheese ravioli, but it also boasts some of the best views of the Magic Kingdom and the nightly fireworks. Note that the restaurant does have a dress code, and you’d do well to make a reservation.
