Universal's Best Restaurants: With views of the Loews Royal Pacific pool (not too shabby) and the sensual and lovely orchid court for which it is named, the Orchid Court Lounge & Sushi Bar does double-duty as a relaxing lobby bar and surprisingly good dining venue. Triple duty, actually, if you count the continental breakfast they serve each morning. When midday rolls around, however, and the barkeeps begin churning out their signature South Seas-inspired martinis – Cherry Blossom saketini, anyone? – you'd be hard pressed to discern whether you're vacationing in Bali or in the shadow of Universal Orlando's myriad thrill rides and amusements. The lounge serves small plates but the sushi bar (try the Volcano Roll) is where the menu really shines.
Local Expert A.D. Thompson Says:
Universal's Best Restaurants: "Visiting with a big group? Go for one of their beautifully presented sushi "boats," the Bora Bora or Tahitian Long variety."
Best for Universal's Best Restaurants Because: Many people are surprised when they discover Orchid Court Lounge & Sushi Bar, an exotic and sophisticated venue hidden away inside a theme-park property.
