A favorite perk
“Our employees look forward to our annual holiday luncheon at Catalina’s. It’s one of their favorite perks. The food is consistently wonderful, and the private dining room enables us to enjoy each other’s company.”

Mia Vonni loves Catalina's
I haven't written a review in years! but Catalinas is a gem! The outside is rather quaint doesn't have the typical upscale look which is refreshing, but when you walk in, it's beautiful and simply magnificent service! Ive eaten at some good restaurants but this one is way at the top!! great for business romance and everything in between!! not to mention the food was spot on!! I recommend the Steak Argentina! and the Mojito's wow!! they do everything but actually feed you! I was blown away! and this is a must when in south Florida!

Our date spot
I take my wife here twice a month. She is a particular eater who always leaves Mario's happy. Our favorites are the Argentinian skirt steak and the chicken and shrimp. Both are terrifically seasoned. The plantains are wonderful as well. We always enjoy sangria while there. It's the best in town.

Great Service
“If Catalina’s is open, Mario is here! He greets everyone and personally makes sure our experience is extraordinary. He is the ideal host.”

Grouper with garlic sauce was delicate and flavorful. Cappuccino was one of the best I've ever had. Sangria "slushies' are a specialty. Staff attentive and friendly.

Pleasantly surprised
We found the restaurant in a local "what's happening" paper, (Can't remember the name of paper as it was last year.) The restaurant was just one of many listed. We're back in Ft. Lauderdale again this year and will be sure to go back to Mario's Catalina Restaurant. Finding this restaurant was one of those "happy accidents."
