Bahama Breeze - Orlando / Florida Guide
Florida Guide > Dining
If you find yourself feeling hungry and you are close to Orlando Premium Outlets (just off the I4) take a visit to Bahamas Breeze, one of our favourite restaurants.
The tasty Caribbean cuisine makes this restaurant group different from many found in Central Florida. Here a happy, lively atmosphere greets you whilst the building structure simulates those found in the Bahamas and Caribbean Islands. White wooden structures with wooden steps up to balconies around the building exist to walk around – ideal for taking a pre-dinner drink from the outside bar - where the ambience is enhanced when the steel drums and a singer perform live popular songs.
Inside the restaurant the temperature is pleasant with a décor of natural wood tones, large ceiling fans and lush tropical plantation. The service is cheerful and attentive. Our last visit was at a busy time on a Saturday evening. Whilst we waited for our table we enjoyed some coconut coated onion rings served with a chilli horseradish dip and warm tortilla chips – these alone were tasty and very filling!
The lighter lunchtime menu has delicious dishes such as vine ripened tomatoes and basil sauce served on flat breads with melted mozzarella cheese and parmesan shavings sprinkled over, crab claws, coconut shrimp, West Indian Patties, Creole backed goats cheese, soups, salads, sandwiches. There is even a separate fish menu, for example tilapia, salmon and a chef’s special wood grilled or sautéed with your own choice sauce. (My mouth is watering as I write this article! ! )
The dinner menu offers this and more with added dishes and flavours to tempt you. Children, or little islanders, are welcomed and they too have their own menu – for example crispy chicken, koolers (apple, mango, raspberry and berries) and shakes. Drinks for adults have names like Bahamarite – commonly known as a margarita! A favourite is ‘Painkiller’. Rum, pineapple juice, cream of coconut, orange juice, shaken and served with a sprinkling of nutmeg. However, non alcoholic cocktails are available as well as beers, wines, soda, juices, soft drinks, tea and coffee.
We often cannot not manage to eat all our portions but we are asked, even before we can request ourselves, if we would like a box to take home our food. We do not need to be asked twice – the food is so delicious we do not want to waste any!
