After a day-long flight from winter and a clueless cab driver at FLL, we were looking for a place to chill - not so easy during Spring Break.

We strolled past Lona, and while it looked quite busy and a tad upscale, we took a chance and landed two chairs at the bar. With the help of a friendly bartender, we selected some cold beers and appetizers, including an amazing mushroom quesadilla and a spinach salad with exquisitely plump and juicy shrimp.

The miles fell away, we relaxed with a view of the ocean, and the service was prompt and attentive. Thanks, Lona, for starting off our holiday with a touch of class .... and a reasonable bar tab!

Thank LidoLiz

Very conflicted with this review. The view and location are perfect. The hostess was welcoming. My waiter was attentive. My 2 margaritas were tasty. The chips were very bland, the salsa was liquid, the chicken enchiladas were tasty but the rice was rock hard and the beans were just beans. While it is not the restaurant's fault I was seated next to a group that were very loud, kept getting up from their table, walking around the restaurant, and were being disruptive to the mood/ambiance. I recognize that there probably was nothing management of the restaurant could do about the behavior but it has tainted my experience. It was quite expensive to sit and be simply miserable with this group's behavior.

The place does upscale Mexican with a large outdoor patio facing the ocean. The service was always very friendly. Our lunch meal was super slow for the food to arrive, so not sure I would do that again as we would have rather been on the beach, but dinner was normal/leisurely. The drinks were really good too - tons of tequila and margarita options. This is a particularly good choice if you're at the hotel.

Been twice, drinks is great, nice atmosphere and setting.

Not sure why the foods so highly rated, salsa watery and pretty tasteless, rice not seasoned properly, chicken tacos were decent enough but nothing special.

Both time here the staff are a bit inattentive .

Just real average
