My husband and I went to dine on February 14, Valentine's Day. Although it was crazy busy the sweet hostess directed us to the bar and got the bartenders attention so we could enjoy a cocktail while we waited. The cute hostess then brought us upstairs to a wonderful romantic table for 2 in the corner. The food was amazing,... More

We had been recommended to this restaurant by good friends who live in the area and are regulars. Although the margaritas were not great, dinner and service was excellent.

We all liked the food and everything was good!!! Plus the view is wonderful!!! We did not try it until our last two days as we thought it was spicy foods here. But everything was good with great seasoning!! Service was great and prices for that area are reasonable. Highly recommend!!!!

The location is perfect. Beautiful view of the ocean. I remember very nice meals here before but today my lunch was mediocre at best. I had the lamb Pita. And some very overpriced margaritas. $45 for a $12 meal.

This restaurant was the perfect setting for a romantic Valentine's Day dinner. It's located in a unique Spanish-style house across the road from the beach. We sat outside on the terrace which was noisy from all the traffic but still the best place to sit because of the ocean view. Food was creatively prepared and attractively served.

Love to eat here for the amazing beach views and beautiful ambience of this restaurant. The happy hour is very crowded, but so worth it- favorite: pesto chicken flatbread. Love the romantic feel for dinner- favorite: walnut chicken. Definitely sit outside if you can!

It pains me to give Casablanca Cafe an average rating because it’s normally, anything but. I went there for a late lunch where I had one of their featured cocktails, & the Mahi Sandwich with salad. The good news is that the cocktail called Casa Smash, was excellent! It was tasty, refreshing & just the right amount of alcohol!! This... More

A lovely spot across from beach - a quieter area...VERY popular with good reason. Food was delicious.

Mediterranean setting, excellent service, and good piano bar. My wife had swordfish which was very well prepared. Unfortunately my beef kabob was tough and the waiter immediately offered to replace it or take it off the bill. Key lime pie was great. Over all it was a very good experience.

While the restaurant has a really nice location and a good atmosphere, the food quality and the friendliness of the staff lacks to live up to the positive reviews from other posts. Especially the greeting lady seems to be very bored and does not feel the need of being friendly or supportive of guests
