“Good vibes and food here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

This little restaurant in an old house by the Broward arts center is worth a visit, particularly if you like foods from south America and Spain. We had lots of appetizers and an entree of fish tacos and all were good. The fish ceviche was delicious. If you have been to Peru, you will be a happy camper. Beer and a little wine. Casual but service was good. Go visit...outside with your dogs.

“A little starved for creativity”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012 via mobile

Cute place, but food lacking flavor and creativity. Fish tacos had miniscule pieces of fish in it and arugula salad w Gorgonzola had 2 teeny pieces of Gorgonzola. We don't enjoy huge portions, but this was extremely skimpy by most standards. Rather they bump the price up a bit and give you a decent portion . Since its only been open a short time we will try again. Perhaps the huevos next time for brunch. It looked good. And everyone was very congenial

“New Place to "discover"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

This is a new restaurant very near to the Performing Arts Center & Himarshee area that is really worth seeking out. Serves great versions of Latin & Spanish dishes in a beautiful new place that is casual and friendly. Provides a great selection selection of "standards" from Cuban sandwiches and chrasco to fantastic seafood dishes that will not disappoint you. Combine the food with a reasonable wine and dessert selection as well as great coffee and you have all that is needed for a great night out either by itself or pre-theater. The have additional seating outside, so it is very dog friendly too. May be one of the best new finds for the year. Try it, you will not be disappointed!

“Great new location, suprisingly good.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012 via mobile

Well after driving by this location for five years and always wondering what it was going to be. The Chimney House opened last month, and after only a few weeks I had head that it was worth visiting. A short walk from the discover center and esplanade park we went last night for dinner.

The fare has a south american twist. Everyone had a different dish and enjoyed the meatloaf, steak, fish and a spicy ceviche. My daughter really like the meatloaf.

Sitting, while sitting outside was a bit noisy with the street traffic, I will be back and sit inside.

Well worth the visit.
