Wonderful place. Valet parking. Worth it. So pretty outside with all their bright lights. We dined outside so we could people watch and enjoy the pretty street lights and children playing in the square. Food was delicious. We ordered the bread that I've seen people comment about on this site. Soft warm bread served with a sweet butter. Delicious! I... More

Stayed a few blocks from here went for my bday dinner, I got the linguini fra diavolo! One of my favorites dishes and this one was by the far the best! So much fresh seafood, half a lobster, mussels, scallops and shrimp! The Marinara was the perfect spicy! Will definitely come back when in town!

Easy to get to, friendly staff and an amazing amount of food to select from. You can sit outside or there is a very large inside capacity. The food was very tasty and the view great being right on the beach.

Great place for casual dining on the beach, whether outside patio or inside ocean view. Fish tacos are the best as is the Greek salad. If in Ft Lauderdale, worth the trip.
