Top 5 Restaurants at Islands of Adventure:


Kicking off our list is The Burger Digs, located in the Jurassic Park section of Islands of Adventure.

There are quite a few restaurants that could have taken this spot at Islands of Adventure, but we decided on Burger Digs for it's affordable prices and, frankly, having some of the best burgers you can find in all of Universal Orlando.

While the menu here is quite limited to mostly burgers, the flavor here is going to be better than some of the mega cafeteria style options (Fantastic 4 Cafe, Circus McGurkus) at Islands of Adventure.

If a burger sounds good, head straight to Burger Digs and don't bother when some of the other locations at Islands of Adventure that also have burgers on their menus.

The Three Broomsticks is the most popular restaurant at Islands of Adventure, and while we don’t find the food quality to be the best, the atmosphere is incredible.

Three Broomsticks is a Harry Potter fan’s dream as you’ll be fully immersed in one of the most iconic locations from the books throughout your dining experience. If you’ll be traveling with a Harry Potter fan then Three Broomsticks should be high on your priority list.

When it comes to food, we find all of the meals here to be generally average and sometimes a bit lackluster.


Coming in at third place is Thunder Falls Terrace, which is also the highest ranking quick service restaurant on our list.

If you’re looking for a quick meal at Islands of Adventure then we can’t recommend a spot more than Thunder Falls.

While the menu is relatively simple, consisting of rotisserie chicken, ribs and other protein heavy dishes, the food is always flavorful.

It’s actually a bit on the healthier side as well, especially when it comes to foods typically found at theme parks. 

We've had quite a few meals at Thunder Falls Terrace and have always been impressed even though the menu choices are a bit leaner and simple than what you may find elsewhere at Islands of Adventure.

Landed in second place is Confisco Grille! 

Confisco Grille is one of two table service restaurants at Islands of Adventure, with Confisco being the more moderate or cheaper option of the two. 

Confisco Grille is consistently good and beats out any of the quick-service restaurants at Islands of Adventure... though it was a close competition between Confisco and Thunder Falls. 

When compared to similarly priced restaurants outside of a theme park, Confisco Grille might not impress, but when it comes to theme park good, Confisco has wide variety of menu options that are always of good quality.

Topping our list by a wide margin is Mythos Restaurant.

Mythos is going to be the most expensive restaurant at Islands of Adventure, but with that comes a significantly better quality of food then you’ll be able to find anywhere else.

The interior is outstanding as well with sweeping waterfront views of Islands of Adventure and intricate rock work making you feel as if you're tucked into a magic cove somewhere in a far off land.

The menu features a good sized list of wines as well as full alcohol bar, and of course, sodas and juices aplenty. 

Food at Mythos is inspired by Mediterranean flavors with dishes including Grilled Lamb Meatballs, Tuscan Tomato Soup, Moroccan Lamb Ossobucco and other cuisines of the world like Pad Thai, Pan Roasted Salmon as well as burgers and steaks.

If you're looking for the best restaurant at Islands of Adventure, then Mythos is an easy to choice!
