Best Restaurants in Universal Orlando CityWalk

Top 5 BEST Restaurants in Universal Orlando CityWalk (2023)

Are you looking for the best restaurants in Universal Orlando CityWalk?

Look no further, I’ve got you covered!

Before walking into the theme parks at Universal Orlando Resort, you’ll walk through CityWalk, a bustling dining and entertainment district.

While you might think to walk past all of the restaurants and bars in lieu of getting something inside either Universal Studios Florida or Islands of Adventure, I’m here to tell you it’s worth it to leave the parks to eat at CityWalk Orlando.

In fact, the food is actually better at CityWalk than inside the theme parks in my opinion.

Not only is there a better variety of cuisines and vibes, but it’s typically easier to get a table if you dine while the parks are open.

These are the top five restaurants you should be making a reservation for at CityWalk Orlando.
