Mythos Restaurant at Universal's Islands of Adventure


Located on The Lost Continent of Universal's Islands of Adventure, Mythos is an award-winning, full-service restaurant that offers an otherworldly experience. If you've ever been to Universal's Islands of Adventure, you've undoubtedly walked by this restaurant with its towering rock formations, waterfalls and ancient figures carved into the side of the building. The restaurant has been calling to me for years and I was finally able to give it a try.

When you enter the restaurant, it feels like you've entered a cavernous grotto from another world. There are oceanic and mythical touches throughout the indoor dining room and there's also outdoor seating with great views of the park.

The menu features a mix of Mediterranean, Asian and American cuisine including Spanakopita Dip, Pad Thai and a Bacon Cheeseburger. There's also a kids menu for little ones and a dessert menu featuring Chocolate Banana Gooey Cake. 

On our recent visit, we decided to split the Shrimp Sushi Katsu Roll appetizer. We were very pleased with our choice! The flash fried panko crust gave it the perfect amount of crunch and the sweet soy, wasabi aioli was delicious. I would absolutely order this starter again.

For my entree, I went with the wedge salad. After a few days eating not-so-healthy theme park favorites, I was in dire need of a salad. You really can't go wrong with a wedge salad. (Anyone else think of Phil Dunphy from Modern Family when they order a wedge salad?) I'll probably order something different the next time I visit but that's not because of anything negative with the salad. I also had my eye on their Pan Roasted Wild Salmon so I may give that a try next time. 
Wedge Salad
Crisp iceberg lettuce, blue cheese vinaigrette, cherry tomatoes, red onion, bacon crumbles, croutons 
My husband ordered the Gnocchi Bolognese and he really liked it. He said he'd order it again so I'd count that as a win. I tried a bite and also really enjoyed it. It had me doubting my choice of the wedge salad but I needed something light and a little healthier.

Slow simmered beef and tomato sauce, cream, crispy Parmesan wafers 
Dining reservations are suggested, for lunch or dinner, and can be made online through the restaurant's page on the Universal Orlando Resort website or by calling 407-224-3663. (Don't forget, your Kingdom Konsultant agent can also help you with making reservations.) We did not have advance dining reservations on our most recent visit but we were able to get a table after a short wait. The Universal Dining Plan is accepted at this restaurant and requires the use of 1 Full-Service Meal which includes 1 entree, 1 non-alcoholic beverage and 1 dining plan dessert. 

We really enjoyed our first visit to Mythos and I can definitely see myself visiting this restaurant again. It's a great option if you're looking for a full service meal within the theme parks.

Paddlefish Restaurant at Disney Springs

After arriving in Walt Disney World around dinnertime with no reservations on our latest trip, we headed over to Disney Springs to see what was available and Paddlefish caught our eye with the beautiful boat shining on the water.  There was space for us at the bar where they serve the full menu, so we settled right in for what was about to be a delicious dinner. We started with cocktails and were very impressed by not only the cocktail selection, but also the bartender's knowledge and expertise on the menu to guide us through our selections tonight.  At the recommendation of the staff, we had to give the Lobster Corn Dogs a try for our appetizer.  These were so fun and very delicious (and I don't normally like lobster!) They are most like a corn dog in that they are on a stick, but don't let that stop you from giving these a try.  Next up it was time for our entrees, we both opted for options "from the port" since we were in a seafood inspired restaurant, we could
