Try to Scallops!

One of the best seafood choices along Ft Lauderdale beachfront. Don't miss the scallops, which are amazing.

For every special occasion, like birthdays and anniversaries, I head to Casablanca. The food is outstanding, especially the fish dishes, and always a super friendly staff. I love sitting on the second floor balcony, overlooking the beach, from where I have watched many moons rising over the ocean. After dinner, the bar scene is fun and usually quite busy.

The food was great. Service good. View great. Ambience was great. My one complaint is the water. Tasted horrible. Other than that it's the best place in FLL

Excellent dinner here with a very special friend from way back. Great fish dishes, friendly bartenders and wait staff, and fun piano bar sing-alongs. We ate here several times and stopped in for drinks heading to and from hotel.

My sister and I took our girls here for our annual cousin weekend. We ended the weekend with dinner at Casablanca Café. What a great choice. The ambiance was wonderful. We had one of most attentive waiters I have ever had the pleasure of having. He nailed the wine suggestions and helped everyone with the menu. His suggestions were perfect.... More

Oh how I would love to give this place at least a three star, however the service was horrible... I had high hopes for this cute romantic cafe that sits right across from the ocean, but Kev's lack of attention and slightly rude attitude won't allow for that. The food was just okay I had the Mauhi .and my husband... More

Located just across from the beach, be sure to get a table outside facing the ocean. Although it looks quite casual from the outside, this is a truly fine restaurant. The food is prepared with top notch ingredients and cooked superbly. The service was a little slow, but with the view, you won't care.

We frequently visit Ft. Lauderdale and always visit the Cafe for lunch, dinner and/or cocktails. It is convenient for lunch on beach days - offering great lunch choices and wonderful cocktails, wine and key lime pie! Actually, should not miss the key lime pie or the grilled mahi - or the mediterranean salad. One of the few places I'll order... More

The grilled escargot was not as good as expected (needed a bit more garlic and oil); the baked brie in a phyllo, mojito, choco lava cake and attention were all very good...
