“Our New Favorite Restaurant in South Florida!”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

Everything from the valet service to our reservation being early, to the staff the food the ambiance EVERYTHING exceeded our expectations. You can't get anything better than S3 for a great evening night out with postcard views of the beach. I will come back many more times and recommend this place to anyone! Tuna Crab Nachos YUMMYYYYYY!!!

“I come here every time I visit friends in Ft. Lauderdale,; it is awesome”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

Every time I come to Ft. Lauderdale to visit my good friends who live here, I make it a point to take them to S3. They provide a wonderful blend of Spanish and Asian specialties in a tapas format. You'll need reservations on the weekends (Fri & Sat) and it tends to be busy other days as well. The short rib sliders are a special treat. The crab cakes are excellent. The tapas format allows diners to titrate to the desired level of fullness. Nonetheless our eyes were bigger than our stomachs, so my friends had to take the chocolate layer cake desert home in a doggy bag. Somehow, I don't think their doggies are going to get any!
