The drinks came in these ginormous cocktail glasses. I thought for sure the alcohol would be watered down. Not so! My giant Mai Tai was good to the last drop. The food came in such generous portion, but not at the cost of substandard taste. The Caesar salad was refreshing. The whole snapper was so fresh. The seafood pasta was... More

We ate here for dinner and while looking at the menu trying to choose if we wanted to eat here the girl advised us that all meals were 50% off. She reviewed the specials with us and advised they were $22-25 each and 50%off. We selected a Baked Calamari starter, and both of us had a sea food meal. They... More

Meal and bottles of wine half off when I visited. Good food, good portions, great customer service. Dining al fresco is nice.

Took an hour to get the check after requesting it 3 times. They forced a tip on us after giving us very very bad service.

What a great way to spend Black Friday. Food is delicious; customer services is great, and the ambiance, well, in front of the beautiful beach of Fort Lauderdale at night. What else to ask for. I highly recommend this place.

The food was ok but the staff was misleading in providing prices and what the specials were. Specials were twice the price that was on the menu. Tips are added to the bill but the waitress does not let you know. It is stated in the menu however. The food and the drinks do not rate high quality there are... More

Had a very well-prepared meal there; especially loved the calamari and the seafood linguini! We were entertained by a flamenco duo and helped by fun-loving yet attentive staff during our delicious meal. Reasonable prices for quality and location. Would go again and/or recommend.

Very good food at this restaurant. The drink specials are also pretty good. Women's bathroom was disgusting someone vomited in the sink and it wasn't cleaned up it was plugged. The second bathroom toilet had no cover. Our waiter was very good and tried to accommodate us in every way possible. I will come back but only if they clean... More
