We arrived famished in North Beach Village after a 90-minute southbound trip. Our daughter and granddaughters had just finished breakfast at The Plaza Bistro and directed us to checkin at Tranquilo for our Cocobelle Resort stay. We opted to go to breakfast first, as we needed a good breakfast. In addition to being charmed by the area, we were delighted... More

Unexpected excellent meal. Orlando, the general manager suggested one of the special combinations for the evening which was the surf and turf. The filet mignon was cooked to perfection and the jumbo shrimp were seasoned nicely, the creamy mash potatoes and the broccolini were scrumptious. Coupled with a nice bottle of riesling wine and desserts that were to die for,... More

If you are looking for a good wine list or a good craft beer this is not your place. Cocktails are good but take awhile to arrive. Service overall is friendly but a bit uneven. The skirt steak was good but lacked proper seasoning. The calamari and summer salad are good choices for starters. The covered dinning area is small,... More

Great little restaurant tucked off the main drag. Friendly staff, unique concept with outdoor seating that changes with the day and the weather. Italian selections for dinner are excellent with the lasagna particularly recommended. The general manager Orlando went out of his way to introduce himself and spend time with us. They serve breakfast too. The outdoor ambience in the... More

We visited this restaurant twice during our stay in ft lauderdale. It is basically a food truck in a parking lot. But it really has a great vibe and ambiance. Unfortunately, the food is just average. We tried the salmon, ok, the caribbean shrimp, meh, the flatbread pizza was great. The service is five star, and the waiters incredibly handsome.... More

My hotel was right next door to this small, outdoor dining venue in North Beach Village. While it's little more than an open lot, it has been bordered with vegetation, awnings and sparkly lights at night. There was live music on the weekend. I ordered the Thai chicken curry salad and fell in love...it was a perfect blend of Thai... More

Food trucks are the place to go nowadays. I saw this on TA and thought it sounded novel. Our waiter was fantastic - Jorge - charming and very knowledgeable. The food was really tasty and the pianist was amazing. The whole ambiance was fun, relaxing and a great experience. A totally wonderful night with two girlfriends.

Vacationing with my sisters in Ft. Lauderdale decided to give this place a try - looked nice and had pretty good reviews. The tip is - you can do ALOT better. Service was not great - took over an hour for food - and food was sub par. Pick somewhere else, anywhere else. KM, NY
