We were recommended this by our hotel we were staying at (Waldorf Astoria Orlando). When we got there the atmosphere was great and were served politely. Main course was delicious, and our table only had positive things to say about it. Dessert was organised by the hotel for free, souflee's were delicious and also a decent portion. Decent value, and... More

The atmosphere truly makes you feel as if you are in hawaii. Overall the food was good, just not as good as everyone raved it to be. I was there on my birthday, id you call ahead they put your name inside the menu!

Roy's is a bustling restaurant with good service and interesting food. Although not the best that I've ever eaten, I would not hesitate to go back when visiting Orlando. The staff was helpful and attuned to any special requests that we had - a gluten-free menu was available for anyone requiring it, and the staff was knowledgeable about the ingredients... More

Very, very expensive. Tiny portions. Food is nothing special at all. We were there for Mother's Day brunch. I had eggs Benedict. One half English muffin. One poached egg. $40.

We were on vacation from the UK and thought it'd be fun to try this restaurant as we usually vacation in Hawaii and thought it'd be nice to try Roys as we didn't get around to visiting the one in Waikiki and love Hawaiian fusion food. Before we left for the restaurant we decided we'd try the 3 course prix... More

We went to Roy's for the second time in two years while again visiting Disney with our 6 & 7 year olds. My wife loves Roy's and the food never disappoints. But what really blew us away was the kid friendliness. The kids menu was perfect for our kids. Moreover, the manager stopped by a few times to say hi... More

With a group of 28 people, we had dinner at this restaurant last week. What a dissapointing experience, after a wonderful dinner at Roy's in San Francisco last May. The starters were great, but the fish as main course was very dry. Dessert was perfect though. Tea was served in teapots without a lid (" sorry, we ran out of... More

Orlando is not exactly my preferred culinary destination, as I am not a fan of chain restaurants in general and they are everywhere in Orlando. Even though they have several locations I would not exactly characterize Roy's as what I consider to be a chain. Their calamari appetizer is killer as is their butter fish. I always have a hard...

We visit Orlando 2-3 times a year to visit family and play golf, and we rarely miss the chance to eat at Roy's. The food is all great, seafood or meat. This time I had the Macadamia Nut crusted Mahi, which was outstanding. We shared a pair of appetizers, the veggie spring rolls with a great tangy sauce and the... More

We visited Roy's as a party of 6 and we wanted somewhere with a great seafood menu. Having been there a few times before, with some mixed server results, we were hopeful of a good experience. We started with drinks at the bar. It had a great atmosphere, it was really buzzing. Some had cocktails, which were great. The wine... More
