Mythos: Award-Winning Restaurant at Universal's Islands of Adventure

Can you imagine eating at an award-winning restaurant inside an Orlando theme park, then discover Islands of Adventure's Mythos!

When we talk about restaurants inside the parks, we usually immediately remember the different meals in the parks in the city. Disney.

However, there is a time when the Universal has been investing to change this scenario, providing its visitors with better gastronomic experiences.

One of the restaurants it's the Mythos, with mythological style it's impossible to walk around The Lost Continent area on Island of Adventure and not notice it.

Universal Resort's Mythos is one of the best restaurants within theme parks, so much so that it has received several awards for its food!

Like other restaurants with reservations, you first go to reception to check in, where you will receive a beep and as soon as your table is ready, it will vibrate and the red lights will flash. 

The location of Mythos, as mentioned above, is on The Lost Continent, a somewhat unknown area of the Island of Adventure, park of the Universal Complex, before the village of Hogsmeade, dedicated part of the park to the Harry Potter saga.

With that, it turns out that visitors pass right by it.

Mythos began to be noticed in 2014 and on its doorstep, to attract the attention of visitors, it has a big sign saying that it was elected for several years as the best restaurant within the theme parks.

How is Mythos Restaurant

It follows the theme of the park region, with a cave atmosphere, with small caves where the tables are located and a large hall.

With a sunny day, the restaurant seems to be even more beautiful and is a great place to take a break before facing the attractions of Harry Potter, for example.

How is Mythos food at Islands of Adventure?

Undoubtedly it's a great surprise, where the restaurant begins to stand out as a different environment within a park, showing why so many awards.

With a varied menu divided into 5 parts: appetizers, main courses, salads, sandwiches and desserts!

While you choose the dishes, the waiter brings to the table a couvert with breads and a butter personalized with the name “Universal”, which is so cute.

In the United States, the couvert is usually free and ends up filling your stomach, in addition to being very tasty.

Because the menu is very varied, with sandwiches, fish, beef, chicken, pasta and salads, it is easy to please the whole family.

What is nice for those who go with more people, is that each one asks for a different dish to try. 

In addition to dishes from Thailand and other countries with a more differentiated cuisine, there are more normal dishes, such as the traditional cheeseburger, which is one of the best in Orlando's parks.

Among the most normal dishes that children or adults with the most demanding taste will enjoy, Mythos has meat with mashed potatoes, pasta, risotto or even a grilled salmon. 

In terms of sandwiches, in addition to the more traditional ones, the restaurant has options such as roast beef panini, tacos, crab cakes and chicken wrap.

If you're one of those people who prefers sweet to salty, save room for desserts!

There are two very nice options, the first is a collection of mini dessert shots with options for lemon tart, creme brulee, tiramisu, cheesecake and chocolate mousse. The second option is a beautiful chocolate cake with banana! 

With delicious, differentiated food, what most attracts attention at Mythos are the prices.

Something that ends up scaring many people from the restaurants inside the parks, because they believe that the prices are high and the food is not very good.

However, Mythos proves the opposite, there you can find dishes between $11 and $18 dollars each and there are even cheaper options for less than $10.

Remembering that we are talking about an award-winning restaurant!  

So when considering the cost x benefit, of eating in a place with different cuisine inside the park, having the possibility to take a break in the day to rest your legs and recharge your energies.

In addition to paying a nice price to eat very well, without a doubt the Mythos it's really worth it!

Do I have to make a reservation

Well, for those who don't like to wait and enjoy having the script all programmed, make a reservation!

So you avoid that time wasted with a name in the queue. 

But if you want to let the day flow without schedules, it is possible to arrive at the restaurant and put your name on a waiting list.

But remember that you are likely to find a reasonably long queue, especially around lunchtime.

And if it's a hot day seerto the, will cool off in the air conditioning!

You can also enjoy the flavored water they serve at Mythos reception!

Conclusion about Mythos Restaurant

The restaurant is really nice, with delicious and different food, but the service is not one of the friendliest (something Disney always wins).

In addition to eating inside the park for a fair price, taking a break in your day to recharge and have a new experience is sensational!

Get your Parks Tickets at a Discount

Many people leave to buy their tickets arriving in Orlando or even on the day of the park.

We do not in any way recommend that you do this for a variety of reasons, such as:

If you buy tickets on the spot, you won't be able to book your park days in advance at the risk of not even being able to enter a park on a given day.

You will lose valuable park minutes in line to buy your tickets.

AND MAINLY, you will pay more because tickets at the box office are more expensive than buying in advance!

Access our ticket website to buy your tickets or request a free consultation to find out exactly which tickets are the best to buy.
