“Wonderful food, excellent service, in spite of Hurricane Sandy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Went to Casablanca Cafe one of the oldest resturants in Ft Lauderdale on the oceanfront during the Ft Lauderdale boat show. On my first visit I was seated promptly and ate up stairs overlooking the ocean. Had Chilian seabass which was outstanding. The entire meal was to die for. I enjoyed it so much and since my hotel "the Westin" was only a block north I decieded to have dinner the next night also. This time I sat at the outside bar overlooking the ocean. This night I had the duck. This too was outstanding!
The bartender Kelly Byrne made the evening most memorable.She was the most cordial and friendly professional I have ever met. She knows the menue and remembers the customers names.She recomended exactly what I would like and I loved each dish.As it ended up I ate there the next night too. The hurricane did not dampen our spirits which was highlighted by this wonderful resturant.I highly reccomend anyone staying in a hotel on the ocanfront to have dinner at Casablanca and eat at the bar and you will love the food and service.

“Amazing beachfront experience”

Sat at the bar outside for food and drinks. Bartender Mike is the best. Highly recommend checking out the best place on Ft Lauderdale beach!
