Dining is a very subjective experience and many people's views will differ on what is good and not so good. Our intention here is to show you some of the places you can eat in various locations and some of the well known and popular eateries. We will include some restaurants that either from personal experience we have enjoyed, or if there is popular feedback from guests (so please let us know if you find anywhere you particularly like). We are not endorsing any restaurants on here nor do we have connections or affiliations with any of them, we are just giving information. One thing is for certain you are never far away from somewhere to eat in Orlando!


Champions Gate is 7 miles from Providence and has an array of restaurants and shops. As well as fast food outlets there are a number of very popular restaurants


If you fancy some fine dining there are a number of restaurants at the Omni hotel


Hard Rock Cafe situated in the CityWalk entertainment complex next to Universal Studios is always a popular venue and is the biggest Hard Rock Cafe in the World! It has more pieces of rock memorabilia than any other location. The site also hosts Hard rock Live Orlando, a 3,000 person concert/party venue. Hard Rock does not accept reservations for dining but they do accept a limited number of priority seating requests per day. This does not guarantee actual seating but does reduce the wait time if there is one.

House of Blues Orlando is situated at Disney Springs West Side (formerly known as Downtown Disney). This is a Rock and Blues theme chain of restaurants offering a mix of American and international dishes. In addition to the House of Blues restaurant where you can enjoy live music, there is the Crossroads table service restaurant.

Planet Hollywood is located adjacent to Disney's Pleasure Island at Disney Springs West Side (formerly known as Downton Disney). Movie memorabilia takes centre stage here in a tribute to Hollywood. The restaurant serves American fayre.

Restaurants at Disney Springs include: The Boathouse - American/Seafood/Steakhouse, Bongo's Cuban Cafe - Cuban, Cookes of Dublin - American/Irish, Earl of Sandwich - American, Fulton's Crab House - American/Seafood, Portobello Country Italian Trattoria - Italian/Seafood, Rainforest Cafe - American, T-Rex - American, 

This one we can recommend!! Manny's Original Chophouse is the place for steaks. Located at, 35496 US-27, Haines City, FL 33844, United States. Simply the best steak house, great choice of food and friendly, homely atmosphere.

We had this place recommended to us by someone who lives on Providence and we totally agree with their approval. They offer a take-away service but there are also tables in the restaurant should you wish to dine there. They have a varied menu and offer specials and all food is cooked fresh. The staff are very friendly. We have left some menu's in the folder in the villa and would advise to ring your order in as due to its popularity there can sometimes be a bit of a wait but it is certainly worth it. The Fish and Chip Shop is located at 8281 Champions Gate Blvd, Championsgate, FL, 33896 (it is just to the side of the Publix supermarket). They don't currently have a website but are on Facebook.

Ovation Bistro is a family owned and operated smokehouse. It is located at 42605 on Hwy 27 North (near Posner Park). We have eaten here a few times and the food and service has always been excellent. It can get busy but you can also reserve a table online. As well as the traditional smokehouse dishes there are chef selections such as lamb and pork shanks which are a nice alternative from burgers, steaks and ribs.
