Surrounded by local artists' art and sculptures, guests enjoy a wide array of expressive dishes that are as lively as the interior itself.
We love specialties like Moroccan lamb meatballs, street corn, jalapeno mac and cheese, and many more bold fusions. Reserve a table here for a unique experience.
After feasting on a delightful meal, head on over to a unique bar experience on International Drive. ICEBAR Orlando is a below-freezing bar that surrounds guests with ice (talk about refreshing).
