A taste of Florida

Met an old friend who was in town, for dinner. Had not been in awhile. Even with the storm rolling in, the atmosphere was fun and beachy. We had a great view of the pier and surfers. The food was good. We had coconut shrimp as an app. I had the Cobb salad and my friend had a meat and... read more

Went for dinner and had the most delicious escargot ever, blackened seafood trio and a pasta dish which two of us shared and had food to take home! Portions generous and prices good, extremely enjoyable all the way around. Only draw back (?) of this place is my cell phone didn't want to work inside at the bar but maybe... More

The Aruba Beach Cafe was recommended to us by a local we met and I hope we bump into him again before we leave as it was a lovely evening. The whole place is great and the food is some of the best we have had this trip. We ordered a bunch of starters (go for the home made honey... More

We enjoyed the Cod Fish & Chips as well as the Chicken Pesto Pasta. Both entrees were sufficient in quantity and provided a hearty meal. The Pesto Pasta was rich and creamy and had a healthy portion of chicken cubed in the sauce. The environment was calm and casual with a very nice view of the Lauderdale By The Sea... More

Sat next to picture window overlooking the ocean. Service was standard nothing exceptional, but friendly. Very noisy night with screaming children at table near our party. My crab cakes were delicious and my husband ordered the seafood combination special which was full of Spanish rice and underwhelming

Decent variety of good fresh food with attentive servers. I had the Greek Athena salad with seared tuna. Good portions and reasonably... More

I thought prices were too high. No fried shrimp as an option for a kid's meal which is common at ocean front restaurants.
