Good Times at Cowfish

We have reached an age of digital fish.

When you step into the lower entrance of The Cowfish Sushi Burger Bar at Universal CityWalk, you are greeted by a large digital aquarium. A genius move to occupy the kids of this millenium.


This restaurant is excellent, and has the crowds that prove it. With this can come long wait times, thus the digital fish. You can create the fish of your liking and watch it swim away; you will later find it upstairs on the screens in the bar/dining area.

This multi-level restaurant has created a concept that pleases the entire family. It is a great place to try Sushi for the first time or have a truly unique burger. They have coined the term “Burgushi,” a fusion of burgers made with sushi ingredients and sushi built with burger stuff. But for the less food adventurous, it’s not as scary as it sounds!


Some of my favorites include the sushi combos and I the loved the bento box for the kids. They also have the basics, including a killer California Roll. All of the half pound burgers are made with top-of-the-line Angus beef and don’t forget to add a hand-spun milkshake (after all, you are on vacation!)


This is a great place for larger families – more people in your party equal more meals to split and try! We loved trying the different types of sushi and all enjoyed the Parmesan Bacon Truffle Fries.

Since Cowfish is at CityWalk, you do not need a park ticket to dine here. It is a great option for one of your relaxing resort days. After dinner you can head out the upstairs exit where you will find an outdoor bar area. This also leads you to many other fun restaurants, bars and clubs that City Walk offers. It is also very close to Hollywood Drive-in Miniature Golf.



I highly recommend placing a reservation up to a month before your visit. This restaurant participates in the Universal Dining Plan and you will see the savings when you use it here, and the kids’ options are great!
