Diner Reviews
  • "Overall a nice place to eat. It was a bit loud. Our waiter was fairly friendly. The food came out slow and had sat under the heat lamp. Had direct view of the food coming out."

  • "By far the best restaurant in universal. We ate here twice this past trip and will probably easy here even more next time."

  • "We had a great experience at Mythos! Our server was really nice, he was from Venezuela, and treat us so nice!"

  • "We've been eating at Universal for over 10 years and never made it to this restaurant mainly because it wasn't a part if the meal deal. Now that the meal deal is gone, wi made reservations at Mythos. A fantastic food experience. Great price, gorgeous setting and delicious food."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "I thought Mythos was a Greek restaurant, but it had few Greek selections. I did however enjoy the crab cake sliders which appeared to have more of the crab (imitation?) than bread stuffing. It's a good sit down choice in an amusement park where everything is very overpriced!"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Had a great time! The food was great the atmosphere was great the staff was wonderful. We even got seated next to the window where we could see Hulk great view!!!"
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "The food was very good for a theme park. We had a great view of the water and park out the window from our table and we really enjoyed that. The food choices were great for adults but also our kids were taken care of as well. We waited about 10 minutes for a table and we had made reservations only a couple of weeks prior. We enjoyed giving Mythos a try and would made reservations for lunch there again on our next visit to Universal."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "The server mumbled through every interaction and we got the distinct impression we were not welcome. The menu didn't seem all that extensive but we ordered a soup and tempora. The soup was difficult to mess up but the tempora was deep fried sushi. How can you take something that's supposed to be delicate and healthy and make it so clumsy, heavy and gelatinous? Then the burger arrived, it literally slung in front of me. A plate of orange fried rubbish greeted me. This was supposed to be a 'signature' burger, but I would be embarrassed to get this level of quality from a truck stop. It was depressing. The sign outside proudly boasts best theme park restaurant for 6 years. This is either a lie or the mighty have fallen on very hard times."

  • "I really did not care for it . The décor was great. The food was unappealing. The lunch menu was small. I guess it was good for park food but for the price, I did not enjoy it"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Great location inside the park, great service, excellent food and very clean open kitchen!! The best restaurant at Universal!!"

  • "What a beautiful restaurant and the food is good too. We booked this reservation months in advance and I'm glad we did. Everything we got was good."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Service was very good. Food was only fair. Creamed brûlée was awful. The staff rearrange the furniture during the dinner hour making quite a racket."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "We ordered 6 different menu items from kids pizza to beef medallions and ALL of it was FANTASTIC! I don't think we have ever gone to a restaurant and had everyone clear their plate!"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Food quality and pricing aligned. The service and setting was nice."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Food was good, too. It is so refreshing to have impeccable service. He was very busy but found time to make sure we had everything we needed. Gave very good descriptions of menu items and tons of help with the 9 and 14 yr olds selecting something they would love. Our food was fresh and delicious. The view was lovely, food was 4 star but the service was 5 STAR and then some!"
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "The food was outstanding, many vegetarian options (by omitting meat from a lot of recipes), and a very attentive wait staff. He had the Pad Thai, she had the vegetarian pasta. Both were prepared to perfection. This restaurant will be on our "must do" list next time we are in Orlando."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "For a place that was voted best theme park restaurant for a number of years, I expected a bit more. In particular, for a place themed with Greek Mythology, I would have expected some nod towards the characters. With out the name you'd have no idea that this was based on Greek Mythology. The food was ok. It was very average. The prices we good - for a theme park. After having dined at other theme park "themed" restaurants, where they really sell the theme, I was just expecting something different."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "I got a specialty drink that came w/the glass. We left , forgot the glass and remembered it hours later. We returned explained what happened and the manager gave me a new glass. Thank- you!"

  • "We are a party of two adults and 3 teenagers. We visited on a really hot day in June for lunch, which was wonderful as it's a really cool, place to eat away from the hustle and bustle of the park. Mythos is a beautiful, unusual and mystic place to eat, it's like eating in a cavern with fountains and great views out over Universal Islands of Adventure. We had a brilliant server called Viktor who couldn't do enough to make our meal unforgettable. We felt the portion sizes on the burgers and fries were a bit small but the prices were very reasonable for a Theme Park Restaurant."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "Thoroughly enjoyed Mythos - we can see why it one so many awards over its lifespan. The theming and decoration are the best we've ever seen, and that alone made it a memorable experience. My wife and I enjoyed explaining the symbolism of the art and architecture to our 8 year old son, who was the perfect age for it. The food ranged from good to excellent depending on what you ordered - my fish dish was superb, though my wife found the salmon only OK. The drinks were very fun, and yes we were touristy and got the commemorative goblets, which are huge, lol. A place to look forward to visiting, and the prices were quite reasonable."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Very rapid service, seated a few minutes after our reservation time . Food was fresh, some portions( the salmon) quite small. Noisy and a number of kids running about, but given it was in a park , all over okay"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "First, we showed up an hour before our reservation (we didn't even realize) and they took us anyway within 10 mins!! Then, our server, I think his name was "Chad, from Florida", was AWESOME!!! He was very friendly,polite and efficient! He was a pleasure to have as a server. We have been there before and we will continue to go there when we visit the park."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "This was my second time dining at Mythos. It always caught my eye because of the huge "Best Theme Park Restaurant!" banner in front, but to be honest I was finally driven to try it out after an unpleasant dining experience at the nearby Circus McGurkus cafeteria-style place in nearby Seuss Land. Universal doesn't have the greatest food, plus you're in a theme park, so given this context Mythos has reliable food and some creative dishes. The menu runs the gamut of pastas, flatbreads, salads, and burgers to appeal to people of all ages. It's a bit "contemporary American" with some international inspirations (especially Asian). Service is pleasant, but it's a bit slow because of the crowds and set-up. Best to make a reservation."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "My family decided to try Mytho's toward the end of our universal studios vacation. We wished we had tried it sooner. It was a great experience. Good was great. Service was great. Everyone got plenty to eat for dinner and topped it off with the shot glass sized deserts. We would definitely recommend to anyone visiting the park to go to Mythos."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "The food was not impressive, the environment was loud (somewhat expected), and a long wait to get into the restaurant. Nothing special here. The service was decent but not enough for me to come back. I'd stick to the cheaper fast foods while in this park, and save money for the better restaurants at the Disney parks (i.e Jiko, Le Cellier, Monsieur Paul etc)"
    Dined on 11/3/2013
  • "We had a wonderful meal and great service. The decor is fantastic! We are especially grateful the chef and our waiter worked together to accommodate food allergies in our group."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "I was really looking forward to dining at this restaurant and because of the great reviews, my expectations were high. It is worth going inside to see how pretty it is inside, but the food is average at best.I recommend it if you're in Islands of Adventure and you want to get away from the crowded restaurants and noisy children."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "This is a great place to stop for lunch while visiting IOA. The food was good and the atmosphere really unique. Prices were good, not much more than the counter service options."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of food you get and the total bill. It was not outrageous for a theme park but the food was just okay. I ordered the shrimp tempura sushi appetizer and was not impressed. However, my son's cheese pizza was really really good! It was worth it for the atmosphere and to take a break from the park but wish I would have ordered something different."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "We have been going to Mythos for years. The food is good theme park fare, nice views, friendly service and a chance to sit after walking the park. However the food seems to have slipped into the theme park category from outstanding. Nothing special. If you plan to eat lunch at Islands of Adventure I would recommend Confisco's by far."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "The hostess was very very rude!! A horrible start and we almost didn't stay. After we told the manager, they were apologetic and gave us a free dessert. Decent food, cool atmosphere. Probably would never go back."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "We went there for lunch, and the entire experience was wonderful; food, service, value! The food was delicious! Make sure to make reservations and eat here while you are in the park."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "A great place to unwind, cool down and recharge for the remained of your park visit. Attentive, friendly staff serves up first class cuisine and service. The peaceful atmosphere and view is a nice break, to think over what you want to do next while visiting the park. We were very thankful to have our dinner reservation scheduled when a storm hit. We will definitely return to Mythos on our next visit!"

  • "Booked this restaurant for our anniversary dinner. We were greeted warmly and promptly. Service was excellent. Food was excellent. Everything that we had from the menu was wonderful. The atmosphere was terrific. We will definitely be back each time we are at the park and have already told people about the restaurant."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Decent food, good service, and a very nice view of the park if you by a window. You feel as though you are dinning in a Greek cave. The Thai entree was tasty, as well as the meatloaf and mash potatoes. The salads are good as well. We had mini oreo desserts and cheesecake. Make reservations, the wait is very long if you dont have them."

  • "Ideal if looking for diffrent. We would go back. Food was was good. Servers were friendly and helpful."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "Very disappointing. Limited selection. My kids are picky and just got the chicken tenders. Just 3 SMALL chicken strips, some grapes, and some carrots for a very expensive price. I would have rather bought the chicken strips at other places in the park and I would have gotten twice the amount of food for the kids. Waiter never refilled our drinks. He seemed irritated to wait on us. Not worth what we paid. However, the restaurant is pretty."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Mythos is an amazing atmosphere in search of a chef that can create food worthy of it! The Greek cavern theme is very interesting and it is a great place to hang out and relax after a busy day at the theme park. But the food is fair at best. The menu is very limited - and there is no theme to it whatsoever. It feels like it was randomly put together based on what happens to be in the fridge! And the quality of what they did have was not good either - we had an overcooked burger and so so pasta. The food was no where near the premium theme park price you will pay. My recommendation? Move on! Stop in, look around to see the view, then go over to Harry Potter and get the fish and chips!"
