The Coconuts is one of Fort Lauderdale’s top spots to enjoy seafood, meat specialties and exquisite wines. Lush palm trees and the location near famous Las Olas Beach are almost reason enough to visit this restaurant in East Fort Lauderdale. Where else can guests dine with such an amazing view of the city’s waterways? But of course, looks are not everything. The Coconuts draws guests in with a wide variety of dishes, fresh ingredients, huge servings and quick, friendly service. Whether you want to go for breakfast, lunch or romantic sunset dinner – the Coconuts is your ideal place for waterfront dining in Fort Lauderdale.
THE COCONUTS´ MENU
One glance at the menu is enough to know: Fish and seafood lovers will feel right at home in this restaurant. Coconut shrimps, linguini & clams topped with mint pesto, and lobster baguette New England style are only a few of the dishes. If you want to taste Spanish, French and African flavors all in one dish, the Jambalaya is your top pick – not just because of the epic serving size. Order the conch fritters to get a culinary glimpse of the Bahamas, and if spicy Mexican Food is your thing, you will love the fish tacos.
If you like it fresher than fresh, just ask for the catch of the day – either grilled or blackened with a mixture of butter and spices. Blackening will give the fish a delicious crust and smoky flavor. Those who prefer their fish raw should try the Sashimi Tuna with sweet soy sauce and ginger vinaigrette. But be careful: At the Coconuts Restaurant even appetizers like the perfectly baked Crab Cakes come in epic sizes, making it quite hard to leave space for the main course.
Despite all the culinary treasures from the ocean, the Coconuts is not only a fish and seafood restaurant. The menu boasts enough meaty dishes to make carnivores of all types happy. These dishes include:
- Tim’s Backyard Burger with swiss or cheddar cheese
- grilled chicken sandwich
- babyback ribs with chipotle-pineapple barbecue sauce
- pan seared chicken marinated with rosemary, garlic and lemon
- New York Steak with homemade garlic butter
- A highly recommended side dish is the coleslaw with sweet and spicy papaya dressing
The Coconuts´ brunch menu provides the perfect start to your day. If you like it sweet, you should try irresistible calorie bombs such as French toast, pancakes with fresh blueberries and Belgian Waffles with powdered sugar. But the menu includes savoury dishes as well, for example sandwiches and burgers topped with smoked salmon, lobster and salami, Italian omelets, crispy bacon or steak with fried egg. A hearty brunch like this will give you ample energy for your sightseeing trip in Fort Lauderdale.
Wine connoisseurs can choose from more than 70 sorts – among them dry red and white wines, sweet rosés and sparkling champagne. Or how about a refreshing cocktail à la Margarita, Daiquiri or Mojito? The drink menu offers the right type of beverage for every occasion.
