This cute spot is located just a stone’s throw from the Broward Center. The prices are reasonable and the food is adequate for the genre.

If you are staying on Ft. Lauderdale beach strip or nearby go here for authentic Latin cuisine. The portions are just right. Order the skirt steak or grilled pork chop.

The lentil soup and octopus were delicious. Arroz marinaro was good but could be much betrer if octopus and calamari in it were softer. But they were more like rubber. Fried seafood wasn't good at all. Garlic shrimp wasn't as delicious as expected.

We are a Latin American Grill & Cafe housed in a restored 1924 historic house in downtown Fort Lauderdale, in Sailboat Bend. We are located just west of the Broward Center for Performing Arts. Our Food is Latin American with an emphasis on quality ingredients -- we strive to bring the best dishes of Latin America to your table in a casual and inviting atmosphere. The idea of restoring this historic, derelect house into a restaurant started with a projected completion time of 2 years and finally took 6 (SIX) years to complete. Our goal was to createa Neighborhood restaurant on the West side of the Las Olas area (in Historic Sailboat Bend) with a strong focus on quality food in a casual yet beautiful environment. Our Food menu showcases the best dishes of South America and Spain like Ceviches, Arroz Marinerro (Paella), and lighter fare like Empanadas, Fish Tacos, and Steak Sandiwches. Come experience the charm of this old home and join us for Lunch or Dinner Tuesday thru Saturday, or for Sunday Brunch. Or just come by and have some coffee (Lavazza is served), or sip some wine, a House Sangria, or a Pint of our Draft Beer.
