“A special place to enjoy a delicious meal in warm, friendly surroundings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2011

Le Petit Café in Dania is our favorite French restaurant and you don’t need a passport to get there. The food is delicious; any dish is excellent and the desserts are as tasty as they come (especially the crepes), the wines are reasonably priced, and just as importantly, the service is second to none. The owners have been consistently pleasing customers like us for many, many years and hopefully for many more years to come. If you’re able to dine here, but haven’t yet done so, you don’t know what you’re missing.

“Great place for a casual bash!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2010

Our party of 19 went to Le Petit Cafe on the Friday night before a week-long Caribbean cruise, with all of our guests arriving from different countries then gathering at Le Petit Cafe that night. We were celebrating my wedding on the Monday, so in a way this was the rehearsal dinner - and what a perfect place for a casual, festive, intimate and gastronomic group celebration! There's no doubt that the food was excellent - guest favourites were the calves' liver with onions, some of the classic savoury crepes, as well as - of course - the dessert crepes. The chef does indeed know what he is doing when it comes to classic French dishes and is not just someone throwing together Croques-Monsieurs and frites (though don't get me wrong, I am also a fan of these fine dishes -- but being able to prepare a quality calves' liver requires a different level of expertise altogether.) The owners were extremely accommodating and the ambience was just right for a festive occasion: casual, yet very warm and intimate. If you are looking for a fancy-style snooty French place then this will not please you -- it is indeed decorated more in a 'cafe' style than in a 'Paris Champs Elysees' style - but if you are looking for great food (at very reasonable prices, I must say), attentive and smiling service, and a cozy atmosphere, I would highly recommend Le Petit Cafe de Dania. An especially great place for a group get-together.

“A lovely cafe with delicious food and friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2010

A large group of 17 people went to this small French cafe for dinner, on the basis of recommendations from TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. The service was friendly and attentive, the food was excellent, the surroundings were warm and comfortable. and the prices were moderate. A real find! We tried a large variety of dishes, from their signature crepes to more standard continental fare, such as veal and steak, and everyone commented on how delicious and well-prepared the dishes were. The deserts are also excellent. I had a crepe with ice-cream and chocolate sauce, and the crepe was crispy and tasty, and the filling was excellent. If we return to Fort Lauderdale, we'll certainly try this place again.

“A French Country Side Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2010

This quaint restaurant located in a run of the mill strip center is quite a treat. The food is delicious. Try to get there before 6:30 to take advantage of there sunlight dinner specials. Also, I highly recommend their soups, fish and Napoleon.

“A breath of fresh air (and great taste!)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2009

I've been curious about this little place in a strip center on Griffin Road in Dania for years, and the other night we finally tried it. So tired of all the big chain restaurants. What a little gem -- great menu choices, delicious food, lovely friendly service, nothing fancy inside but a quaint and charming atmosphere. Family-owned and it shows. We will definitely be back, and soon!!
