The restaurant is in an older hotel and what I like best is the validated parking for the restaurant is cheap. That's where the good ends.
The restaurant overlooks busy and noisy AIA roadway but the beach is still visible.
The menu is simple and basic with no surprises. Service was good but slow.
We tried several items such as a pedestrian guacamole made even worse by the crab addition and a forgettable tuna tostada for appetizers.
It was however the entrees that were below average: A boring and flavorless Yucatan Chicken and salmon mole. Neither were very good. Prices are reasonable for being on the beach.
This is really a place to hang out for a drink (if you have the misfortune of being stuck in Fort Lauderdale) otherwise there is no reason to go to this restaurant.

I'm always leery of restaurants in hotels because they don't need to rely on repeat business.Our of sheer convenience, our party of 8 dined here and had a good overall experience. Menu was diverse. Service was solid as was the food. Good options for the kids and those wanting something other than Mexican. Margaritas feel short which is surprising for a Mexican restaurant. Their recipe can really us an overhaul. Not sure I would go out of my way to eat here, but if staying on site or within walking distance, I would go back.

I came to Lona for the first time and bartender Carolina is an amazing bartender that made me some great margaritas. The shrimp quesadillas were amazingly good. I will definitely be coming back.

Well located near beach and ideal for people watching, this place is a good choice for good Mexican food and liquids (great choice of Tequilas etc.).

Service was very friendly and efficient and food was better than most Mexican restaurants.

The Guacamole was very good, with cheese added and making it very creamy and yet tasty. Salad was fresh and the mains were moderately innovative and nicely prepared (unless you want to prep your enchiladas or tacos yourself).

Best were the (chicken) tacos, enchiladas missed a bit taste and spices.

Overall, a good place to hang out to have a Margarita or two, watch people and beach and have a nice dinner.
