Honestly worst place I have ever eaten at and I’ve had my fair share of bad restaurants, the waitress was rude and had no type of class, when she asked me if I wanted “chicken” or “shrimp” she back handed my shoulder. The food was another story, besides the fact that it took forever to get to our table, it sucked; I specifically asked not to put olives in my food and it was like the pored an entire bucket of olives in my salad. Don’t go here, it’s expensive, food sucks, and service is horrible.

Great drink specials, and the drinks were not watered down which made them that much better. Food was some of the best we had on our trip. The fish and chips appetizers is a meal in itself as well as the coconut shrimp. Just beware the 2 for 1 drink special does not coincide with the 10% coupon
Service was great.

Perfect for many occasions, with a water front view, and lots of people watching. My sister and I were celebrating birthdays, and we were happy with our choice of dining. I had the grouper and she had the Greek salad. Both were delicious! Nicky or Nickolai was our waiter, and he did a great job making us feel special and that we had everything we needed. I would go back when I am back in Ft. Lauderdale.

Terrible food. My lobster ravioli was pre-made and the sauce was lumpy and bland. My husband’s chicken and veggies were too salty and lacked flavor. $100 meal and we were both disappointed and had stomachaches later.

After calomari as an appetizer which was okay, my main course of veal scalipini showed up. The plate was wet and runny; the breading was falling of the veal. My wife looked at me in shock and said "How did that even make it out of kitchen?" It also tasted bad. I sent it back and had a bowl of soup which was average. Very bad experience although her meal was fine.

Surprisingly excellent food. We enjoyed the calamari and other seafood dishes. Everything was well prepared and fresh. The seafood arrabiatta was very good. Our server was also very attentive. One warning: service charge is included regardless of party size (our server was kind enough to inform us).

Broken glass in my little girls drink and the waitress could have cared less. Some of the food came out cold and most of my party was not happy.

Reliably good Latin-inspired food and very friendly service. Great for watching the passersby on the boardwalk, and the Spanish guitarist is super entertaining.

Food was fabulous! Great seafood restaurant. Shrimp and scallops were huge and amazing! We should have gotten more raw oysters - they were also delicious. Was happy to take advantage of 2 for 1 mojitos. We were a group of 6 women, out for girls night and the vibe was just right. Live music was amazing!! Our waiter read our table and had fun with us too. Drinks were never too low, food came out in a timely manner. Didn't have dessert but it did look delicious as well. Highly recommended for a boisterous group like us!

We were in town for vacation and found Cafe Ibiza on Open Table. We *wanted* Mediterranean food and were expecting a menu along those lines. What we ended up with was a Caesar salad, fish and chips, and coconut shrimp. It was fine. It was by no means the best of any of those things, but it definitely wasn't Mediterranean. We also had a pretty hard time finding the restaurant (given that we weren't local) and when we called to ask for help, there was no answer. Perhaps that's standard for that area, I don't really know. At any rate, know that you are going to a place on Fort Lauderdale Blvd., but need to park behind and walk around to the front.

Quite a find! We went for the food and stayed for the music. The guitar player that night was wonderful to listen to. Our waiter was charming and the food was delicious and reasonably priced. Would recommend Ibiza to anyone vacationing in Fort Lauderdale. We would go again except we live in Massachusetts so it would be a long drive!
