The moment I moved to Orlando, I knew one thing on my must do list was dining at Victoria and Albert’s. The only problem is it’s been closed since the beginning of the pandemic, so no one has had a chance to eat there. Last week, the more than two year wait ended as the restaurant finally reopened their doors. And I had the chance to dine there earlier this week.
It was almost everything I hoped it would be. The staff is absolutely positively amazing. The restaurant is stunning. The food was beautiful, flavorful, and unique. I had an excuse to get all dressed up and live out my Disney princess dreams in real life.
If you are up for a serious dining adventure, Victoria and Albert’s is an absolute must. Know that it is quite expensive (it starts at $300 per person) and it is a time consuming experience. I was expecting to be there about three or four hours, but we ended up being there for six, and that was after asking for dessert to be expedited.
I was really ready to go home as the clock struck midnight (in Disney princess fashion, I was about ready to turn into a pumpkin) and this detracted from the experience a bit. I’m sure they will work it out, and I would go back for a special occasion or to dine in the kitchen at the Chef’s Table once it too reopens.
But enough about the experience, you can read about every detail on Tasty Chomps!
Let’s talk about the fashion to match the experience. I wore my tulle Anouki midi dress/gown because I could not think of a more appropriate time to wear it. I only wore it one other time, to an event, and I was so excited to have another excuse to wear it.
The first time I paired it with black pumps and a crystal shoulder bag. This time I switched things up with crystal pumps and a black clutch. While it’s not exactly a wear everywhere kind of dress, I can’t wait to wear it again because it’s impossible not to feel happy and glamorous maneuvering a giant tulle dress.
When is the last time you got really dressed up?
