    Beverly M Says:

    This is a small family owned restaurant serving up traditional foods from Spain. Excellent service! The wait staff have been in this establush mentioned for over 20 years. The owners make you feel like long lost family friends, stopping at you table to chat and learn where their customers came from and how long they plan on being in the area. The Sangria is made on premises each day, as is the breads and fresh desserts. It takes a little while to get your food, but it's worth the wait since each and every order is cooked to order. This is not a place where food is made in bulk and left to sit in a pan. You will NEVER find that here! Cafe Seville is definitely a place you will come back to and refer your family and friends to!

    What fun is this to travel around Fort Lauderdale by boat. Enjoy the sights from the back side of luxury. See homes of the stars or just sit back and relax enjoying the sounds and smells of the salt water and sea birds.

    Anchors away! Ft. Lauderdale was once the home to the mysterious flight 19 that vanished off the coast of Florida spurring additional tails of the Devils Triangle. See what Ft. Lauderdale Naval Air Station was all about. Many of the buidling are gone and new offices and air craft maintenance have taken their places, but the museum lives on in its small section of the ft lauderdale Hollywood International Airport. Definitely a must see for history buffs!
