We spent a week in Keys, and began our trip in Fort Lauderdale. Based on so many great reviews, our first meal was at Lona Cocina. Honestly, it was probably the best tasting meal that we had - the shrimp tacos were out of this world! Guacamole was tasty as well. Negatives? There were some shady people hanging around the entrance from the street that made us uncomfortable, and it was rather loud...music, car/motorcycle noise, and when we ordered a Dr Pepper it was surprising that it was served in a can. The food was excellent though, and I wish I had the recipe to the shrimp tacos so I could recreate them at home!

Lona was amazing! Our waitress, Rae, was so sweet and attentive. The food was amazing (plus free chips and salsa) and our table was shaded and cool but looked out onto the ocean. Perfect lunch spot!

We came in off the beach and were so hot and dehydrated! Rae was constantly refilling our waters and was very on top of everything she was doing! She was fantastic and made the experience great!

Thanks Rae!

Zsanae was our waitress and she was so on point with everything ! She recommended a way to prepare the fish tacos and they were phenomenal. She kept checking on us and making sure we had everything we needed. The restaurant is in a great location right by the beach. All in all 10/10 experience and will be returning!

Lona Carina Tequileria was a vibrant busy restaurant to eat at on Ft Lauderdale Blvd. The music is a bit loud but the service was by far the best we have had in a very long time! Our server Claudia was friendly and attentive. Since COVID hit we have noticed how difficult it is for the service industry to get going again. We have walked in to @TedsMontanaGrill in Denver last weekend waited for 15 minutes the bartender looked at us several times and servers were running hard and no one spoke to us so we left. This experience was 180 degrees different! Managers checked on us, Claudia always kept an eye we even swept stories but wen we told her we would leave she said no rush..... “this is your house too” Wow! Thank you high recommend just for the service and ocean setting alone. Also the crab guacamole was delicious
