Walked for twenty minutes and couldnt find it, the address is a pizza place, so either this place change names or the reviews are for another location. the one in ft lauderdale doesn't exist. we asked five different people and no one heard of it.

Hidden for sure!! We could not find the place. This is now driving me crazy! I would LOVE to find the place. We looked on map and read great reviews. Walked and walked and still could not find it. Now we looked at map and still can't figure out how we missed it. We WILL walk again to see IF we can locate. We even asked other establishments where it was, 'just in case'. OK...off we go!! I will not give it a bad or good review. Not far either way, so I will give it a 3 star. Hope to see you later witht the REAL and hopefully rave reviews!? :-)

Much better and more relax than the busy "Beach Blvd." area. It's really laid back and a place also locals really enjoy! (Not like the touristy places close to Las Olas). Great food and very friendly staff!

We have looked for years for a nice restaurant on the sand (Sea Watch does not count since its food is so awful). We have found the perfect spot and have hesitated telling anyone about it since we love the intimate atmosphere. The restaurant is small with about 10 tables on a deck directly on the sand. It is actually attached to a small hotel so it's easy to miss.

As if the atmosphere alone didn't support it, the food is superior and service the best around. Salads are crisp and delicious and served in bowls large enough to "toss" with the side of dressing. The house salad is huge ($6) and the entree salads are all great including one with succulent crab ($14). My companion had the Mahi Sandwich ($12) which came with fries and was a large piece of perfect fish and tasty french fries. I had the Mango Grouper which melts in the mouth and included wonderful mashed potatoes and a fresh medley of perfect vegetables ($19 including dessert). I couldn't get enough of the volcano cake which came with the meal. Moist, delicious chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream on the side.

The only drawback (if you want to call it that) is the lack of a full liquor license. The wine list is adequate for someone who is not a wine snob. But the ability to sit at the railing while watching the moon shimmer off the water and hoping to catch site of baby sea turtles hatching makes it magical. The real surprise is you get all that plus fantastic, reasonably priced food and service that can't be beat.

By the way, this all applies only to dinner. For breakfast we would go almost anyplace else. There is clearly a separate cook/chef for that meal and it shows in very poor food.
