Mythos at Universal's Islands of Adventure
Awesome dining experience!If dining here you must try their signature burger with pork on top! It is excellent. Atmosphere is like nothing you will experience anywhere else. Great place :)5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMexotic with great foodAmazing Restaurant, unites exotic beauty of the good food and service, especially the Brazilian waitress unfortunately do not remember her name, but was very friendly. Weak point: despite the heat, the air conditioning was very strong.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAdventureMythos is part of the Island of Adventure experience. The décor is great, the service is great. The food is good and reasonable considering your in a theme park.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMSpectacularGreat food and service. It was my second time and the food was awesome.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Dining ExperienceI made a reservation online for Mother's day 5/12/13, at 1:15pm for a group of 6, including a toddler. The staff was extremely accommodating by providing a high chair and sitting us where there would be enough space for all of us. The food was excellent and the price was reasonable for a holiday event. Our toddler was very hungry and our waitress rushed his order so he could eat as soon as possible. She frequently came to check on us even though she had multiple tables to handle, she made us feel like we were her only customers. The staff even offered to take a group picture of us so we could share the moment. When traveling back to Islands of Adventure, I would definitely eat here again!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat retreat from the crowdsGreat retreat from the crowds with sit down service, close to Harry Potter's village. Had a reso at 1:30 on Mother's Day. Showed up 15 min early and were seated exactly at 1:30. Food at our table ranged from simple kid-friendly fare (grilled cheese, hamburger) to tasty casual adult meals (chjicken sandwich with arugula, crabcake sliders). Service was a little slow but given it was Mother's Day and they were very crowded, it wasn't unreasonable. Plus, the ambiance more than compensated for the wait. Our waitress offered to take pictures of our family outside in front of Zeus (it was also our daughter's birthday) so she deserves extra kudo's, too! Would go again without hesitation, but with a reservation.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Theme Park RestaurantThe food and service was EXCELLENT. The ambience amazing. My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary. My only complaint
is that the bar service left a lot to be desired. The selection of liquors was very limited. I find it incredible that ANY BAR would not
have sweet or dry vermouth. How could you make a martini or manhattan? Other than that, we had a wonderful experience and will dine there again.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMythosGood food, had a 530 reservation that they changed to 4. Park was closing at 6 so I understood the change of time. Problem was we felt rushed because they were closing soon after we arrived. My son wanted a milkshake with dinner but they said bartender already left and could not make it. We almost couldnt get coffee either but they were able to provide it.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent dining experience.Excellent dining experience. Food was quite good at very reasonable prices. Highly recommend.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMVery Nice Place to Eat.We enjoyed this restaurant. The prices were reasonable for a theme park restaurant. There were a lot of mushroom dishes, so if you like mushrooms, it is a good place to eat. The day we were there they were only open to 4pm, so that was the last seating of the day. Since we had a 4pm reservation, the restaurant was fairly empty. The food was very good. The sushi appetizer was outstanding...California rolls.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMbest mealThe food was amazing! I can actually say it was the best meal I have ever had. My only slight disappointment was that I wanted to surprise my daughter with a birthday dessert but the hostess would not allow me to do it ahead of time. I was told I had to talk to the server about it once we were seated which didn't happen. They did offer and bring her a dessert shot but there was no element of surprise or special item to celebrate. Otherwise, the atmosphere and food was exactly as we had hoped. We truly enjoyed our time there!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always enjoy Mythos. It'sWe always enjoy Mythos. It's been very consistent through the years. It's a must-do on each trip to Islands of Adventure.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMRelaxed fun elegant diningMenu had something for everyone. Typical children menu with gourmet food available for adults. Everything tasted great and was served beautifully on the plate. Price was very reasonable. Just a few dollars more than the typical fast food in the parks, but much better quality. The inside had a great theme that everyone seemed to enjoy. Some tables had a view of the lagoon including The Hulk coaster.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMMytho's is no myth,its always greatWe've eaten here several times over the years,we always love it.the Cedar planed Salmon is perfection ,golden and slightly crispy on the outside and melt in your mouth inside.I am rarely impressed with any restaurant yet alone a Theme park novelty restaurant. Don't miss this experience ,ask for a window if available .5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMNot lke a theme park restaurantI made a 2:00 pm reservation to escape the heat. What a pleasant surprise!! Our table was waiting for us at the exact time of reservation. Superb waitress helped me make my food selection by offering a green salad instead of potato salad. My fish tacos were full of crunchy veggies. My husband, the meat eater, rated those petite fillets top notch. This restaurant is great for people who want a nice break from all the walking and riding in the park. The food is as good as any four star restaurant and the food is a value for the quality.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreatMy family and I enjoyed the food it was great. They had something for everyone even my most picky eater.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service, creativeThis is the place to eat at Universal in Fl, and lunch was quite reasonable ($20 a plate including an add on spinach salad) when compared to equivalent restaurants at Disney. We had mahi mahi, which was cooked through (depending on your perspective that is either good or bad). My favorite item was actually the spinach salad with some kind of blueberry dressing. Delicious. Also loved the rosemary bread. Mmmmmmm.
A big draw here is the theming and it doesn't disappoint - it's like dining in some fantasy cave, with not a straight wall in sight, inside or out. Lots to look at. Restaurant is pretty bright, though. Only atmospheric disappointment is a high noise level. Wait staff is excellent.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have eaten here many times.We have eaten here many times. Our last visit was less than stellar, but hoping that was not the new norm. We have had many wonderful dining experiences here. This last time, the meat was overcooked. In all fairness, I did on mention it to the server who would have surely switched it out. Typically, this is a wonderful respite in the chaos of the theme park.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThis restaurant exceeded myThis restaurant exceeded my expectations for a theme park restaurant. Food was exceptional and service was superb. Highly recommend the mahi Mahi dish and the filet. We picked this place to enjoy a special meal for my daughter's birthday and it worked perfectly for that. A cool restaurant to enjoy a great meal in.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMloved unique atmospherewaiter (from rochester ny, mike?) was best aspect. all good otherwise. we were a bit disapointed in the lack of integration of myth theme with more aspects of the experience. we suggest that you have staff deliver more myth info and tid bits in the process of passing guests in and out. happy to see the art work. could be more though. thx!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGluten free greatnessThis was a great place for people with special diet requirements. We were able to have amazing food that was gluten free. Usually you have to sacrifice something for a special diet but not so here. Kudos to the whole staff. Amazing4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was freshly prepared.Food was freshly prepared. Servers were fantastic. Manager greeted us and then at the end, he asked about our dining experience. Would definitely go again.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMafter spending a week at disneyafter spending a week at disney it was so nice to have good service and good food!!! been to ioa a few times and this was our first trip to mythos and it was good. will come to again on next trip.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our 2nd visit toThis was our 2nd visit to Mythos at Universal's Islands of Adventure. We did not have as good of an experience as we did the first time. My son and I ordered the same meal that we had on our first visit which was the Bacon Cheeseburger. This time the burger was so greasy that the bottom bun was soaked. The first time it was excellent. The service is excellent and the ambiance is excellent. We did not complain about the food to the waiter. These 2 visits were only about 6 weeks apart and it was my birthday. I will be willing to try another restaurant the next time we visit the park.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWent for lunch on a busy FridayWent for lunch on a busy Friday at the park. Made last minute reservation on Open Table Mobile App and was seated right away upon arrival. Fish Tacos were excellent!!!, nice quiet break from the crowds in the park in a comfortable air conditioned room with excellent view of the park!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMnice decor! food is ok. Dontnice decor! food is ok. Dont get pork was not very fresh. Personal very nice but of cause
they get overwhelmed with the number of people they have to serve.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWe really enjoyed our mealWe really enjoyed our meal at Mythos. A great break from the hectic scene at IOA. The kids all found food they liked, and the parents got a good meal at a reasonable price. The ambience there is very cool as well.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMNice lunch spotGood food, fun atmosphere, and friendly service. Only wish it was open for dinner and not just lunch. I think the ambiance would be even more amazing at night.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe didn't feel like we wereWe didn't feel like we were dining in a theme park. The food & service was perfect. The next time we go to Universal, my family & I will be eating here again:)4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMythos : The gem of UniversalThe food is delicious . Congratulations to the staff ( especially the chef ) .4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was so nice to be ableIt was so nice to be able to sit down and have a civilized meal, rather than "park fast food." We had gin and tonics, but they were served in short glasses with lots of ice and little gin/tonic. The food was very good, but it could have been hotter.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWide range of excellent food.Wide range of excellent food. Also reasonably priced--especially surprising seeing that it's in a theme park.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMSee why it's No 1 Ron theme parksReally happy with our choice here. Slight wait, even with reservation, which really just means express lane and not an actual reservation. However worth the wait. Great food and reasonably priced for the quality on offer. Would return and recommend.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe BestThe best theme park restaurant hand down. Great food, great atmosphere, great staff! Serving size is just right. Not too much but loaded with flavors. The clearly have a fantastic chef. Make sure you get reservations.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFriendly Service/Staff.. goodFriendly Service/Staff.. good food, fair prices. Overall a very good experience. They where able to seat us a little ahead of our reservation. Which was nice, because we where done at Island of adventure and wanted to go to Universal side in the afternoon which we did.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't miss Mythos!Make a reservation! When we arrived for our 2:30 pm lunch reservation, the wait for walk-ins was over an hour. My 11-year old was dismayed at the lack of chicken tenders on the menu, but our server Jeff accommodated her request to downgrade the BBQ Buffalo chicken wrap without batting an eye. Jeff was personable, friendly and provided great service! All of us enjoyed the still fresh warm herb bread while we waited. The Shrimp Tempura Sushi appetizer was outstanding, as was the pizza appetizer. My son's hamburger looked like a real, handmade patty, and he raved about the bun. Blueberry Spinach Salad with Salmon was simply the most satisfying spinach salad I've ever eaten. Fresh, tasty and a perfect mix of flavor. You must try Mythos!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMA great place to get awayA great place to get away from the hubbub of being in a theme park. The decor and low noise level make you forget that you're at Universal Studios. The prices are very great for the food that you get! You're going to pay $10 for a burger, fries and a drink at the other places and have to fight for a place to sit. You can make reservations here ahead of time and pay not much more for more of a gourmet meal. They have a good variety of food from pizzas and chicken wraps on the casual side, to steak for a nice dinner, and Pad Thai if you want to go ethnic. They also have little desserts in shot glasses so that you can have a small taste of dessert without getting stuffed. It was so good that we ate there again a second day.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAs annual pass holders atAs annual pass holders at Universal Studios/Islands of Adventure, we try to visit Mythos every time we come to the park. This time it was to celebrate my son's 22nd birthday. We had a very nice dinner at Mythos and the service was excellent.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food, decor and serviceThe food, decor and service were beyond first-rate. If I had a complaint, and I actually don't, I would say that the restaurant was a little noisy, making conversation a bit difficult. However, Mythos is in the middle of a theme park, so that is to be expected.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!Can't say enough about this place. Great food, great service, wonderful with the kids. Prices very reasonable. Very surprised since it was inside a theme park! The atmosphere is wonderful too, very unique. Highly recommend!4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for theme parkUnexpectedly yummy for a theme park restaurant...can get a healthy meal at a reasonable price. A welcome relief from fast food. I had the Mahdi Mahdi it was fresh & healthy.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place, a wonderful familyGreat place, a wonderful family resturant while spending the day at the park!4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall, I thought the foodOverall, I thought the food was good. Our wait staff was ok, but the front staff for checking us in we're friendly. We had a reservation for 2pm and were seated on time. I ate at two restaurants at Disney (Yak and Yeti and also San Miguel) making reservations for all three (Mythos included) at the same time. I felt the seating arrangements offered at Disney were much nicer, one with a water view and the wait staff were much friendlier and engaging. I also think the food was more reasonably priced. Where I would eat again at the Disney restaurant, I don't think I would at Mythos as it would work better for a couple on a romantic dinner then a family coming for a lunch.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent choice after a tiring dayWe chose to make reservations at Mythos during our vacation to Island of Adventures. We did not know much about it with the exception of pictures from the website and a few reviews. Our kids were amazed by the inside and the seating was just what was needed after an entire day of walking - very very comfortable. Menu was great, even for kids, but the risotto of the day dish was terrific!!!! Pizza for kids was brick-oven style with a great crust and burger was terrific as well. Overall, we had a wonderful experience and would definitely eat there again nc recommend to others that were vacationing there. It was a great place for dinner if you are looking for a sit down meal with more than your regular "park food options." Loved it!!!!!4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Meal at the MythosWe made a reservation to visit Mythos at the end of a really busy day at the Islands of Adventure and it was a really welcome break at just the right time. Its menu was really varied, probably the most varied on our holiday to Orlando. We all tried something different, the childrens menu was great, my daughter loved the banana split, the rest of us had the ravioli, the chicken wrap and I had the chicken salad. All sound simple but the chicken and cashew salad was probably the bet meal I've had whilst here. The ambience and service were also great, busy when we went but still felt relaxed and our waiter was great, took us through the menu in detail and left just enough time before coming back with courses and to see if everything was ok.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding! Went back again!Outstanding service and food!! Michael the manager went above and beyond to make our experience amazing!4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMYou can make reservationsYou can make reservations ahead of your vacation through OpenTable which is great. If you don't have reservations, you can put your name on their list and go on some more rides or shop and they'll text you when they have an opening which I thought sounded great. Great value for the food and ambiance. My daughter and I went twice on our trip, and all of our entrees were delicious! I would eat all of my meals there while at Universal Islands of Adventure! Our lunch was half the price of what we paid for breakfast in the restaurant in Harry Potter land and was 10 times better.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMNice place to dine amusement parkIt was nice to have a decent meal at an amusement park. The prices weren't bad either. I had salmon which was cooked and served on cedar wood. It was very good as was the asparagus. The mashed potatoes seemed a little on the plastic side.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great dining experience.We had a great dining experience. We had the tempura sushi, crab cakes and mushroom meatloaf and they were all terrific. The service was great as well. I highly recommend this restaurant.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGrand Experience!Our waiter was above and beyond as far as customer service. It was a grand experience! I would definitely go to Mythos again if I am in the Universal Studios.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
