Funky Monkey Wine Bar

Try one of Orlando’s hottest dining spots the Funky Monkey. They have two locations – one at Pointe Orlando (International Drive area) and another location in downtown Orlando. I have dined numerous times at the downtown location, and I have not been disappointed on any of my visits.

The International Drive location features a show with your dinner on a regular basis. If female impersonators are appealing to you this is probably one of the best places in Orlando to catch a show and enjoy some delightful cuisine (call for show times and reservations).

Their downtown location has an elegant and yet very comfortable décor that is dimly lit. If you sometimes have issues with reading menus, you will want to be sure and bring your glasses, because on all my visits, I have had to borrow friend’s reading glasses to see the menu. Speaking of the menu, while sushi is a top draw, they also offer some delicious meat and potatoe entrees. If they did not, I would not be a regular, as I am not a fan of sushi. Many of my friends are, and they love their sushi. I, myself, steer more towards tasty comfort food with a unique flair. On my last visit I enjoyed a delicious pork dish with mashed potatoes and veggies.

The service has always been attentive, and the food’s delicious, so if you’re in the mood for something a little different try one of their two locations.
