HORRIBLE TOURIST TRAP!!!.
HORRIBLE TOURIST TRAP!!! Stay Away!!! What a waste of time and money! Very few meals to choose from, - we sat for the longest time just trying to figure out something we actually wanted to eat. The main courses are very small, and expensive, and they come with nothing - no salad, no sides, no vegetables, no bread, nothing!! If you wanted anything else, you had to order it separately, and of course the ala - cart offerings were very expensive. We finally settled on fish tacos, and an appetizer of coconut onion rings. The expensive drinks we had while waiting were not good at all. I ordered a martini, which tasted like cheap punch and not at all like a martini, and it was $7. After a half hour wait a kid walked by and slid our plate of onion rings onto the table, barely pausing as he raced by. NO PLATES TO EAT OFF OF, no napkins, nothing. One onion ring on the top of the pile was good, but when you picked it up, you saw that the rest of the pile was so overcooked; the darkest brown they could be before they turned black! Horrible, disgusting. And they were greasy, how they could be so burned and still saturated in grease is beyond me, yuck. We had no sooner picked up the one onion ring, when some other kid raced by and stuck our plates of fish tacos on the edge of the table as he raced by. So now are sitting there with our appetizers and dinners at the exact same time, there is no way to have our appetizer without the fish getting cold, besides the onion rings were so disgusting we could barely eat them anyway, the drinks were glorified water, and the dinners where nothing like the description, a slab of fish in a hard taco shell over lettuce!! We had enough and just left and went somewhere else. As we walked out I saw someone eating a steak, that I remember being on the menu for $25, and he was having a hard time cutting it with a steak knife, and cutting off big chunks of fat, yuck! Do yourself a favor, STAY AWAY IT WAS A HORRIBLE PLACE, and very upsetting to have to deal with them!!!
What can I say about Bahama Breeze. Great food, excellent service. Every year I visit Orlando, I look forward to dining at Bahama Breeze. The portions are huge. Everything I've had has been very flavorful. The shrimps are a nice size. I really love this restaurant. I highly recommend it.
Great food, great atmosphere, lots of fun!.
My husband and I went here with some friends, one of whom had been there before. It was every bit as good as we were told. The staff was great and didn't mind that we were a little silly. (We were celebrating.) We all got something different and sampled a little of each and everything we had was wonderful. We didn't have a very long wait, maybe 30 minutes, and it was a Saturday night, but it was about 8 p.m. so maybe that made a difference. In any case, we have another trip to Orlando coming up and plan to go back.
The place to go.
I love this restuarant. The food and ambience are great. The only problem is waiting. It seems to take forever to be called for a table. So eat a bite before going. The appetizers are huge. A drink and the appetizers are very filling. It is defiinately a must try. I go every time I'm in Orlando.
Caribbean food and cool drinks with a Florida twist.. The Scene This festive place can get a little rowdy, especially in the late hours. A contributing factor may be the drink menu, which includes more than 50 beers and a wide variety of fruity umbrella drinks. Happy-hour prices are featured around the clock. Check out the outside covered deck when dining or just sit back with a cold one and enjoy the nightly live entertainment.
The Food The house specialty is a moist and tasty "fish in a bag"--strips of mahi mahi in a parchment pillow flavored with carrots, sweet peppers, mushrooms, celery and spices. Paella--a rice dish brimming with shrimp, fish, mussels, chicken and sausage--shouldn't be missed. Coconut-curry chicken is a light-tasting treat: sauteed chunks of chicken sprinkled with fresh coconut. For dessert, indulge in the pina-colada bread pudding or the tart Key lime pie.
I did some research on which restuants had the best rating and reviewer comments. Bahama Breeze stood out, so we went to try it. We were not disappointed. The service was good, but the food took a little long getting to us. The manager came over and gave us an explanation for why. Which I felt was good on there part and he gave us his card and said if we would come in another time and there was a waiting list, show them the card and we will get you seated right a way. WOW!!
The food was very good. Now there building a new resturant in Seattle, can't wait to try it.
Drinks. Ahi tuna were perfection!.
We've been back to this location on each Florida trip annually for the last three years and it never disappoints. The drinks and shooters are wonderful - try the oatmeal cookie shooters! The Ahi tuna was a real eyeopener and is a favourite. Service can be slow and it can take a bit to get a table. Full menu available in the bar. A bit noisy for two people and conversation, best for a group.
