Mediterranean
An Innovative Mediterranean Asian restaurant serving breakfast, lunch, dinner & Sunday afternoon tea service. Located on the main level of Orlando’s ultra elevated ette hotel. The dining space spills out onto a verdant courtyard featuring a linear fountain and fragrant herb garden where guests may enjoy delicacies and indulge in our exclusive dining experience. We ask that guests adhere to a Smart Elegant dress code for adults & kids. Casual attire such as loungewear, jeans, shorts, t-shirts, baseball caps, tennis shoes, running shoes & flip-flops are not permitted.
***** A Wellness-focused restaurant - while we do not menu alcoholic beverages, we have a top notch, high quality Mocktail menu. However, we understand that everyone dines differently, and that is why we have “Bring Your Own” — giving you the freedom to bring your own favorite libation with you with no added corkage fee.

    I’ve been to this restaurant 5 times and the service has been amazing, except for last night. The service needs to improve a lot to return to the amazing standard that it was at before.

    It’s great food.. expected from a Michelin chef, service by Paul, personalized with great recommendations.. nothing went wrong but NO WINE OR SPIRITS. You must bring what you are going to drink otherwise you’ll be paying $26 dollars for a non alcoholic beverage.

    Every bite was scrumptious 10/10. I recommend bringing your own bottle if you want a true cocktail all though the mocktails are also a treat.

    What a hidden gem! From the truly magical mocktails through the whimsical dessert, it was a special experience that I won’t soon forget. Chef Akira Back has crafted a menu that is unique and well executed by the kitchen staff. The service staff was eager to please and showed knowledge and attention to detail. A particular standout was the mixologist who came to our table to share special components of the mocktails.

    Beautiful place. Very welcoming. Great service and course explanations and movement between courses was relaxed, sometimes feeling a bit slower than I would have liked. The amazing quality of the food and non-alcoholic drinks was so excellent. The portions aren't large but the whole effort let me leave feeling uplifted and satisfied. A great experience. We'd go again for sure.

    Food was excellent and fresh. This is BYOB restaurant. Bring your own alcohol. No corkage. Food was a bit expensive IMHO and you could easily leave hungry. Like the casual ambience but these are very high prices for what you get.

    Unfortunately we did not rate this experience as very high. If you are familiar with the area and the foods you can tell- the egg salad and scones are from Publix, or the same supplier. The amount is reasonable, but for the amount charged, it is absolutely nothing spectacular. The ambiance; it is hosted in the hotel breakfast room, past the lobby. I would not recommend to others nor go again myself.
