Good food, good prices

If you like Spanish food this place is very good for the money. They also started to serve breakfast, which we tried, it was excellent and a bargain compared to other places in the area. Gateway is a Lil gem for small quaint ethnic restaurants. You have il Mulino's, SukoThai, Heart Rock Sushi... read more

Natives of Fort Lauderdale love the old Gateway Theater and now add to that a great meal at Tipico Cafe. It has a relaxing atmosphere. But, the best is the food. Tastes like someone's grandmom is in the kitchen whipping up delights just for you. The service is wonderful and the entrees ordered were hot and oh so good. Did... More

We were looking for somewhere to go for coffee and staying at the Victoria Park Hotel around the corner. Walking in we were greeted warmly and found it to be the perfect place to have a light lunch. Had the spinach salad and quesadillas which were both very nice and the complimentary chips and salsa were a nice surprise. We... More

Some of the dishes are good at this restaurant; others, not so much. The salsa is great and I actually like it and the black beans Bette than La Bamba. If I ran really craving Mexican or lati food, I ill head over to LaBamba. The booths in this restaurant are the worst! So lumpy and uncomfortable. Service is inconsistent.... More

29 hours after we left home we got to dinner. Thanks to the team at North Beach for recommending it. Service was quick, we both had Fajitas and they were tasty, fresh, and very nice. Was pleased we went here. Recommend it for good simple fare.

We never miss Tipico when we visit Ft. Lauderdale. You can't judge by the humble outside. The food is prepared to order and the ingredients are fresh. On this trip I had the fajitas (steak and chicken). It was a large portion with plenty or add ins and wraps. The sangria was quite delicious too. The staff is very friendly,... More

A friend of ours told us the food was good here. So I gave it a shot, when we entered there were about 4 servers SEATED at the bar talking to each other. I didn't know what to expect, but I didn't expect that. There was one other table seated. My husband and I chose our seats - we were... More

It is my favorite place for Mexican food in Fort Lauderdale. I do wish they would they would make the room more presentable. It is not dirty, but grungy looking.
