"basement atmosphere; just walking down a flight of steps to get inside makes you feel as if you're in a New York hideaway.

This lobby eatery features some of the best tapas (Spanish appetizer) dishes to be found anywhere in Orlando. Dine alongside a relaxing waterfall as attentive and helpful servers offer wine and beer suggestions and guide you through a menu as diverse and satisfying as Orlando itself. Delicately breaded calamari, stone oven-baked pizzas and succulent lamb chops compete for your attention, but don't worry; this reasonably priced tapas restaurant makes it easy to sample as many dishes as you can handle.
Located just a mile south of the Orlando Arena, which is home to the city's popular Orlando Heat basketball team, this bar and eatery draws crowds of sports fans.

White Wolf Café has remained a favorite for two reasons: fun décor and good food. Stained-glass windows, Tiffany-style hanging lamps and decorative crockery set the stage, and on weekend nights, patrons pop in for coffee, dessert or a drink. Live music, usually acoustic, is offered on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. The menu offers a wide selection, from vegetarian and other low-calorie offerings to a calories-be-darned Three-Cheese Lasagna. Chicken Brioche and Thin-Crust White Pizza are popular options.
Guests of this restaurant enjoy tasty, reasonably priced tex-mex fare and a choice of indoor or outdoor seating. Be forewarned: the restaurant fills up quickly on weekend evenings. Start with cream cheese-filled jalapenos, then progress to entrees such as Chicken Quesadillas or Chimichangas with either chicken or beef. If you're not in the mood for Mexican delicacies, have no fear. The restaurant also serves pasta and hamburgers. Complement your meal with a drink from the full bar.
