We usually go for drinks after supper in the area. Lately their friday entertainment hasn't been so great. Maybe it's time to hire some new talent.

Make sure you ask for a table by the window. It was wonderful looking out the window and finding that I'm looking right onto the beach with a view of the ocean and the pier.

A fantastic restaurant. I wanted to get a quick lunch before I went to the Airport, and happened to be in Fort Lauderdale by the beach.

On our honeymoon we ate seafood stir fry and a salad, both in generous portions and were very tasty. I must say I've never had a stir fry that has so much flavor. It was great.

Being right on the water, Abruba's is the perfect place to have cocktails, lunch, dinner or to meet friends. The food is great and it is a fun place hang out and listen to the music on the beach.
