Part of the Universal Orlando development – Citywalk has restaurants, snack bars, shops, a 20 screen cineplex and nightclubs. After 6pm you can park in the multi-storey for only $3 too.
The restaurants we have tried are the Hard Rock Cafe and NBA City.
NBA City is a 2 storey lagoon front restaurant/shop – there is an interactive playground area and a club lounge where you can watch live and classic games. We visited for lunch which was quieter than dinner. I had a relatively healthy turkey burger. Service was good, surroundings were fun and the price was reasonable.
Hard Rock Cafe is our favourite venue at Citywalk. Ideally situated between Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios (you can access direct from Universal Studios theme park) we find it a good break from the heat of the day. This Hard Rock is the largest in the world and has an amazing collection of rock and roll memorabilia including a pink 1959 Cadillac. The menu is regular American cafe fare – burgers, awesome BLTs, fries etc – they also do cocktails, a good selection of beers and great milkshakes.
It can get very busy at Citywalk in the evening – if you find it too crowded and the restaurants too busy you can jump on one of the boats and go to the Hard Rock Hotel or Portofino Bay Hotel instead where you can usually dine without a wait.
