“A great find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

After reading positive reviews, we had to check this place out! It is essentially a patio restaurant run out of food truck that produces astonishingly good food! We were very impressed by the ambience and lighting. The wait staff was friendly and helpful and the manager stopped by several times to make sure everything was up to par. Unlike the tradition restaurant, they bring your pork rinds instead of bread. I don't usually eat pork rinds, but these were pretty tasty. We started with the fried green tomatoes and they were DELICIOUS. Perfectly crisp and not mushy whatsoever. I had the Caribbean shrimp, which had a great curry flavor, and my boyfriend had the skirt steak. Portion sizes were good. We were there on a Saturday night and they had live music - a guy with two keyboards playing some electric type music that was a little eclectic, but kept us entertained. Would definitely recommend this place to my family and friends.

“Unassuming but wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

Looks like a parking lot by day, but by night is a great casual eating spot with a ton of ambiance. The food will surprise you. Served from a trailer-kitchen, this meal will be one of the better ones you will experience in Fort Lauderdale, truck or no truck.

“Amazing - best food ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013 via mobile

Wow the Plaza Bistro is an amazing restaurant. The staff were so friendly and the food was simply divine, the prices too were realistic and to be honest i think the food was worth double the price we paid! We had the main course of king prawns served with a subtle curry sauce and it was quite simply delicious. We can categorically state this was the best dish we have had for many years. The ambience was perfect. If you are in Fort Lauderdale I highly recommend a visit.

“Amazing food, service & vibe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013 via mobile

We were really curious about this restaurant since we read about it on trip advisor. It was raining so we were not sure if it was open but when we asked it actually just opened. We had chips with guacamole, two flat breads and cheesecake as dessert.... Everything was amazing it was so good! Also the whine was really good. The service was also very good, they were all very kind and interested! So we're going back Tomorrow! If you're visiting Fort Lauderdale, just step by! The ambiance is so great, with the live music, outside terrace, the candle lights and the lovely staff. It was a perfect night out :)
