Jfood down south for some R&R this weekend and friends have reserved Cabana and Tramonti's
Anything special to order at these two places?
great Mojitos at Cabana. I haven't eaten anything there I didn't like, let the servers guide you. If the weather is good try to sit outside.
Tremonti's is ok, it's just another Italian. I personally would go to Gol for the most amazing Brazilian buffet and roast meats. I am going Sunday night (my birthday)
Night 1 Cabana - drove to Delray around 5 and luckily found a parking spot within 15 minutes. The wandered around with mrs jfood. Seated outside at 7 with friends.
Waitress was very efficient, on top of the table, not intrusive with a great personality and a smile to boot. Jfood was looking for light so he went with the cerviche and the chilean sea bass. Both were good but not great. The cerviche was missing the citrussy element and even in hindsight jfood is not sure what acid they used. It was scallops, calamari and shrimp. Fairly basic grouping of seafood. The others had the salads and these looked fantatstic and large. The sea bass was covered on a white sauce that jfood can only describe as gloppy and not overly tatsy. At a Cuban resto jfood was expecting some better flavors. The two ladies ordered shrimp dishes and the loved them and the salmon looked well prepsared as well.
But for an tmosphere, sitting on the sidewalk with mrs jfood and good friends made this a perfect dinner. The food was definitely secondary and was OK.
Dessert at Kilwins was great
