We found this place on our first weekend in Ft Lauderdale. Went on a cruise and went back to this restaurant when our ship returned. It was good enough to repeat the next weekend. We had the filet mignon, with a crab cake starter. Ask for a mojito with coconut rum if you like it a little sweet. It was... More

This cafe was recommended to us by the hotel staff, it was a great little place, we absolutely loved the deep fried alligator tail, my meal was over salted & the didn't charge us for it. All in all a great place to eat.

We visited the Casablanca Cafe during our weekend gateway to Ft Laudardale beach for our 19th anniversary. The place is perfectly located with the view of the beach, very romantic setting at dusk. At first glance the menu looked expensive but we were able to find the perfect meal. We started out wit the Moroccan Trio as our appetizer not... More

My husband and I saw this restaurant while driving one day and thought it looked beautiful so we decided to try it out. The building itself is very nice- looks like a Mediterranean styled house, and the ambiance from outside is nice. My opinion changed however, once we sat down. The tables are so close to each other that everything... More

Based on excellent reviews we decided to try this unique restaurant. We were not disappointed. This is a great restaurant for outdoor dinning. We dinned upstairs which is more private then the downstairs which made it more cozy and romantic. The food was reasonably priced with good sized portions that were well prepared. My Key West Snapper was excellent and... More

My husband and I had dinner in the Casablanca Cafe during our four day trip in Fort Lauderdale. The restaurant is located across the street from the beach, with an open patio for seating outside and a small balcony upstairs. Try to get a seat outside - the breeze is great; the view of the beach and the sound of... More

After experiencing some pretty average food and even worse service along the beach it was nice to have a great meal at the Casablanca Cafe. Though we were unable to get an outdoor table our group of five got a nice table that was breezy (as if we were outside) without a wait despite the busy Saturday night. I guess... More

First of all, the views are great. Yes you are right on the A-1-A but that means you are right on the ocean and you can people watch for hours. But to be able to do that you need great food and drinks which Casablanca has! Their seafood was spectacular and the service was great. We will definitely be back... More

First time at Casablanca Café and I will be a regular every time I am in the Ft. Lauderdale area. The food and drinks were fantastic and the outdoor seating is where you want to sit. The friendly atmosphere and the warm breeze made dining romantic.

This place is as charming as can be from the outside and looks aren't deceiving. You won't find a cozier spot to dine and enjoy the ocean (except maybe Seawatch) and the food is just as beautiful. Order the local fish (Snapper, Grouper or Mahi) and a few cocktail around sunset and this really will be a dinner you'll remember.... More
