Great food, its an outdoor restaurant at the hotels pool. Took celiac seriously. I had the surf and turf skewers and the blackened grouper with broccolini. Food was delicious but the portions are small

Waitress was not very knowledgeable on the menu. We wanted to order the guacamole and chips but she advised the chips weren’t GF. However, it’s listed on the menu as GF. I questioned her about it and she then advised after checking with someone that the chips were GF because they fry them in the oil first thing in the morning. Didn’t make any sense as they would still be in the cross contaminated oil. We opted on not getting it. I asked why the hanger stank wasn’t GF and she said because of the potatoes. I then noticed you could get the garlic potatoes as an appetizer and it’s marked GF. She then advised that it was miss labeled. I ended up getting the pan seared salmon with Asian style stir fried vegetables. However. I have little confidence in this restaurant/ wait staff. I had planned to get an appetizer and dessert but decided not to due to the lack of confidence that anything was GF. Thankfully I haven’t had any reaction

Food was amazing!! Had the shrimp ceviche, the surf and turf skewer, the salmon dish and crème brûlée. Everything was absolutely fantastic and reasonably priced for the location near las olas blvd and to be right on the water. The waitress however alerted me that there may be cross-contamination when I told her I was gluten sensitive. I don’t know what their precautions have looked like in the past but I would be careful if very sensitive to cross contamination. Overall a lovely experience!

They had a lot of gluten free options, I tried the octopus appetizer which was tasty but very chewy and the Greek salad with salmon. Everything was very good and the menu was clearly labeled with gluten free, dairy free, and vegetarian. It’s beautiful on the water watching the boats go by!

This is a great place for adults. The menu indicated several gluten free options. Our son also has celiacs (and is a picky eater). There weren’t many options for him (no gluten free bread or bun options).

This was my first time eating here. I am severe celiac and had absolutely no problem. The food was excellent, and the staff is very knowledgeable! I had the fingerling potatoes as a starter and they baked them instead of putting them in the fryer. I also had the grouper dish as my entree. Highly recommend and will be back!

The food is awesome here, they have a lot of options for GF and I like the tapas because you can have variety. The water view is beautiful and relaxing to watch the boats go by. I’ve been here a few times and every time I have gone staff has been very accommodating.

Very good tapas restaurant! The chef came out to talk to us about GF options and offered to cook the duck fat potatoes in a separate pan of oil to prevent cross-contamination. The bacon wrapped dates were delicious!
