About Villa de Flora at Gaylord Palms Resort
Kissimmee, FL 34746
We welcome you into the magnificent Villa de Flora, a Mediterranean marketplace. Our chefs have created a feast for the senses, making this one of the most popular restaurants of its kind in the state of Florida. Chefs stationed at six markets invite you to sample their culinary creations, including a seasonal market-inspired menu with entrees from the Mediterranean.
In addition, the staff has an impeccable eye for hospitality, from the minute you enter until your warm send-off. This epicurean dance begins with a “market tour” and explanation of the day’s offerings, generously displayed in each station. A delectable wine list is offered, including the restaurant’s famed sangria.
Sunday Brunch is an additional treat, named Critic’s Choice for Best Brunch by the Orlando Sentinel.

We have been here several times and always have a great meal. The food is fresh which is hard for a buffet and well prepared. There are many options to choose from. Their salads, paella, meat and fish selections are always great. It is well worth the price.

Too expensive for the food that was offered. There were no breakfast offerings in the buffet. For $60 per person there should have been an omelet station, waffles, pancakes, bacon, sausage and other breakfast items. There are much better ones in the Orlando area. The rotisserie chicken, tenderloin and short ribs were over cooked and dry. This was not a brunch buffet that I would recommend for a special outing or even a Sunday brunch.

Rip off ! Sunday brunch at $197.50 (with tip and parking). No brunch/breakfast favorites like eggs, omelettes, pancakes, french toast, etc. The shrimp cocktails tasted like chlorine and mussels tasteless. Stay away for brunch or any meal as this is no way to charge premium price for lousy food and no diversity with quality food. Rip off !!!

We usually have Brunch every Sunday at Villa de Flora and take friends and relatives when they visit. Brunch is a big thing for us. Christmas and New Years Brunches were very nice and we enjoyed ourselves. We request Frank each time because he is so kind and friendly and he is a very good waiter. In each case that Frank was not available our server was friendly and accommodating. We also look forward to seeing Travis. He is so gracious and kind and entertaining. His close up magic is quite remarkable. We look forward to seeing the staff and enjoying a delicious meal again this coming Sunday.

We just visited Villa De Flora for New Years Eve and did the buffet at $75 a person. Our waitress Maria started out very bubbly and helpful it seemed until two of the people in my party wanted to do the $20 per person unlimited red wine, white wine, champagne, and I believe beer. When asked if she could do red wine at first and then have a glass of champagne for the end of the dinner she started lecturing my family members (who are adults) that she didn't think mixing wine and champagne was a good idea and she didn't want anyone to be to impaired. On sooooo many levels this was so inappropriate to me and from then on her service to our table was lackluster to say the least. We had also mentioned that we were staying at the hotel so we were merely walking upstairs and we could handle a few glasses. She purposely took her time bringing more wine until at one point I literally looked at her and said go get the wine now. Overall it was a nice experience and the food was over abundant and delicious. I just feel to lecture the customers on drinking when they've agreed to pay the $20 per person makes for a very uncomfortable experience.

Loved our experience eating at the Villa de Flora. The food was delicious and there were so many options to pick from!!! We had both dinner and enjoyed a fun character breakfast at the Villa de Flora. The service was impeccable and the ambience was wonderful. Would definitely recommend to anyone and can't wait to go back again!!!

In the summer of 2016 I came for the water park with grandchildren, it was an awosome experience. I came back for the Christmas at Gaylord Palms for the holidays, the children love the breakfast with Charlie Brown Characters, it was magical. We saw the Cirque the most amazing show on earth. Thanks. We will come back definitely in 2017.

As always, the food was fantastic, this place has a huge buffet, and it is all good. It was breakfast with the characters Lucy and Charlie Brown, the kids loved them. Price is the only thing, it is not cheap for adults, but great for 1 day.

The service was awesome from the time we entered the restaurant entry. Our server was very attentive and available for any request. The buffet was excellent with a good selection but my meat loving husband would have liked a bit more hefty meat availability. The kids and I enjoyed everything very much. Thank you and we wouldn't hesitate to return. The price is high which is to be expected in the resort theme of things at the hotel.

We always do character breakfast at Gaylord Palms with ICE. It was a little disappointing this year. In the past we have had more characters, Shreck ears one year, a magician one year. This year was blah and Snoopy was in the front not even at the tables for the kids. All in all, not worth the effort.
We have been doing this breakfast for years and I think this was the least imaginative year. Not sure we will bother next year.

The restaurant is not very wheelchair accessible or friendly for people with special access needs. The food was good. The service could have been better. The waitress didn't write down our drink orders and always brought the wrong drinks. Combined with taking ten minutes each time they walked back to the kitchen, it ended up taking a long time to get what we wanted. There was also some confusion about what was included and what cost extra. It was always a surprise when the bill arrived.

We visited between Christmas and new year. It was not busy and yet we were seated right next to other diners. The variety of food was fantastic. I tried things from every buffet set up. My favorite was the shrimp scampi. My least favorite was the Italian make your own pasta. The chef was obviously tired, on the rude side, and didn't have the ingredients on hand that were listed on the menu.

We dined at Villa de Flora for breakfast on December 26. We went for the character dining experience before attending Ice. The staff were excellent. Courteous, attentive, and friendly. My son really enjoyed meeting Charlie Brown and Lucy. I enjoyed the food. Yes, it was standard breakfast buffet fair, but it was well-prepared and delicious. My family and I enjoyed our breakfast very much. It is a bit pricey, but you're paying for the experience.

Great location / very impressive, only negative, which was very disappointing is that the restaurant refuse to grant access to the hotel wifi, which really annoyed our kids. Quite unusual now, as almost every restaurant offers it.
