Whether you're looking for a family meal or a leisurely breakfast before departure, this is a fine place to eat. There is truly something for everyone. Well-prepared, reasonably priced for an on-site hotel.

Ate in the Kitchen when staying at the Hard Rock hotel. Food was good and the staff were fabulous. The grand kids had piazza, my wife had the short ribs and I had Rusticana pasta dish. All the food was good quality.

Every Tuesday Morning the restaurant hosts a character buffet for the kids. They don't charge anymore for this than the usual buffet prices. The food is fantastic and a great breakfast menu. Including made to order omelets and made to order- waffles, custom French toast and pancakes. Service was good. The characters were only two- Gru and a minion from... More

Spending some time in the sunshine state and circumstances placed me in this eatery twice in as many days. The goods news, one of the better breakfast buffets I have ever had.

Free transportation from Universal Portofino to this and other local restaurants make this a good choice. You can walk, but don't. Quiet booths and attentive service get top marks while the food choices are varied and terrific.
