Fun spot with very good food

Good spot across from beach and near a lot of hotels. They have plenty of outdoor seating and two levels of indoor seating. It is very crowded on weekends, be prepared to wait. Bar looked fun but didn't have time to partake...

We ate dinner here twice, while vacationing in Fort Lauderdale. The first night I had the shrimp with peppered polenta. It was delicious, although a tad rich. My husband enjoyed the ravioli special and we shared a Mediterranean salad, which was fresh and delicious. The second night I tried the red snapper and my husband had the seafood linguine. Both...

We went early. The happy hour is food and drink in the bar only. Our server took time with us to make a choice and the drinks were great. Fresh fish, good preparation, and again, we were early on a Monday so it was not busy.

Great food, but noisy and a bit chaotic at time, service was steady but maybe a little slow, seemed to be way place was. But close quarters and excessive noise made it hard to have any kind of conversation

We picked Casablanca for our last dinner before heading home. The place caught our attention through the week because it always seemed busy. We arrived about 6:30PM and were promptly sited outside. The location is as close to the beach as you can get this part of Ft. Lauderdale. It was windy and by the end of the meal it... More

I would highly recommend this place for lunch. Didn't have dinner so don't know about that. Right on the beach, great service. Only gave 4 stars because 5 stars is for meals that are so good they amaze you, and you don't get that for $23. At this place for $23 you walk away very happy.
