Nice location, very good food

Ended up stuck in Ft. Lauderdale for an afternoon and needed a quick healthy lunch. It fit the bill - quality food, friendly service and nice atmosphere.

Several people we had met at the hotel touted the Casablanca,. We stayed at the Hilton and waked to dinner. The restaurant was crowded and we had to wait for over 30 minutes to be seated. While we waited emergency vehicles came and carried out an older woman that had fallen on the dimly lit stairs. Our waitress advised that... More

This cafe is so very romantic, sitting out at a little table on the little patio facing the beach, separated from the public sidewalk by steps up and plantings in a stone wall. Trees in pots on the patio offer dappled shade and ambience. The food was creative and tasty, and the beer was cold on a warm sunny day.... More

Nice stop for an early lunch! Not to pricey but bring your wallet. It's very close to the beach and the excitement that was just a short walk away.

Ambience and food was excellent . Fresh and generous portion of shrimp over delightfully flavored polenta. Service was even better!!! Waitstaff was very attentive but not intrusive, helped with my selection and made me feel very welcome Debbi D

While on a weekend get-away to Fort Lauderdale, we tried the Casablanca Cafe. It is located right across the street from Fort Lauderdale's public beach, so offers nice views of the sea. On our lunch visit, we set in the ground floor outside seating area. The food and service were both good. For dinner, we made reservations, which is always... More
