Refreshingly unpretentious, this well-received restaurant is run by a husband-and-wife team. Concerned more with food than reputation, they've nonetheless managed to succeed at both, allowing their menu to evolve and adapt to new ideas in cuisine while remaining true to tradition. Dinners here are served in its warm, French-country dining room or, on suitable evenings, in its quaint courtyard. From beginning (perhaps you might try homespun adapted classics like country-style fried green tomatoes topped with crab meat and served with mustard buerre blanc) to end (homemade tarte aux pommes) with a break in the middle for the classic braised dish that gives the restaurant its name, Le Coq au Vin has endured as one of Orlando's French favorites since it opened in 1976.
