We welcome you into the magnificent Villa de Flora, a Mediterranean marketplace. Our chefs have created a feast for the senses, making this one of the most popular restaurants of its kind in the state of Florida. Chefs stationed at six markets invite you to sample their culinary creations, including a seasonal market-inspired menu with entrees from the Mediterranean.

In addition, the staff has an impeccable eye for hospitality, from the minute you enter until your warm send-off. This epicurean dance begins with a “market tour” and explanation of the day’s offerings, generously displayed in each station. A delectable wine list is offered, including the restaurant’s famed sangria.

Sunday Brunch is an additional treat, named Critic’s Choice for Best Brunch by the Orlando Sentinel.

This is one of the most extensive buffets I have been to and I must say the vegetables were the star players. However, the price was jacked up for Mother's Day, to an obscene degree. For the price, at least a bottle or two of champagne should have been included.
It's a shame that management was so greedy. There were very few customers as a result.

The selection on the buffet was good. Food was good. However, the price was outrageous.

We had a Mother's Day Brunch there. Service and pleasant attitude was definitely the best part of our dining, however, I was not too impressed with a brunch selection. Desserts looked really good but did not taste that great, except the ice cream. I received a beautiful rose at the end with a hot chocolate mix in a cute container. I guess that's why the price was pretty high even compared to upcoming Father's brunch...
I would suggest adding more fresh fruit and vegetarian options, smoothie section would be nice too.

We had a group of 9 for Mother’s day brunch. Food was great but beers or alcoholic beverages way too expensive and lacks a bar. Restooms to far away.

I was at Gaylord Palms two years ago and loved the dinner here. Coming back for the Expo, I couldn't wait to have dinner there again. I absolutely love it, and, only wish you weren't so far away.

Seeing that the restaurant is inside the hotel the location can’t be beat. The service was far and above great. The food was very good, a lot of choices. Our visit was for breakfast and it is buffet style so you can’t order off a menu. The cost is a bit high $30+ for one person. When we stay at the hotel we will have breakfast here again.

The best food and atmosphere! The service is amazing too. We had a great waiter can’t remember his name but I think he was from Morocco. There was a manager that came around very pleasant.
The food was amazing as always! I come every year in April and enjoy it everytime.

The food was great and the service was decent until the end when a friend of mine was charged $540.00 instead of $54.00 dollars and when we spoke to the manager she said it would take 5-7 business days to get the money back. The remaining 3 of us were incorrectly charged as well and when brought to the manager's attention she would not do anything about it. I am a concierge and I would not send my clients to this restaurant until they are a little more careful with their patrons money. The food was great so it's sad that I had such a terrible ending to this meal.

We went for Easter brunch. There was a wide selection of breakfast and lunch options! I was able to share a lot of the different foods with my 8 month old. I really loved the omelet station and the blue crab bisque! The dessert bar was adorable and delicious! There was also a candy table to build your own Easter basket!

Went for Sunday morning breakfast at 9 am...not the brunch. Many otions to choose from. The made to order omelettes are delicious and there was no line at the time. Excellent selection of fresh fruits, grains, cereal etc. Our server Rad was attentive in keeping coffee and juice glasses full as well as clearing plates. I would definitely eat here again. BTW, we weren't staying at the hotel so we drove and parked in hotel lot and the restaurant gladly validated our parking stub without a hassle.

Everything was good, except that the hostess didn’t seat us in the patio initially as requested, despite us having a reservation. The patio was empty at 8.15 am. They need to focus on providing better seating experience to set the tone

For my birthday I always come here. The choice of food was not that great but it was ok. They had almost everything with black olives and some people can’t eat that. Not the variety you expect for almost $50 per person. Server was excellent but not all good stations was open. Was not impressed for dining with 7 people.
