On a pleasantly warm, cloudless day in South Florida, you’re enjoying an expertly crafted tropical cocktail while patiently waiting for your fresh local catch meal to arrive, staring into the sparkling waters steps away. Oh wait, this isn’t a dream? Eternal sunshine, thousands of miles of coastline and waterway and as many delectable dining options combine to offer the reality of outdoor dining in the Palm Beaches. To take advantage of a meal at any of the following is to live your best life in South Florida’s tropical paradise.
There is nothing that isn’t simply spectacular about an experience at Guanabanas. Tropical plants provide a lush frame to the beloved treehouse inspired establishment and you feel as if you’ve escaped into a hidden secret. The views of the Intracoastal (and paddleboarders!) are relaxing as you sit amongst the natural rock and greenery. Food and drink options are light and refreshing, complementing the landscape perfectly. Most nights, live music is scheduled to be enjoyed on their personal stage. If live music isn’t your tune, it can be a mild backdrop to your dining event as the property is comfortably spread out lengthwise so the loud music doesn’t have to be a part of your meal too.
Within walking distance of Guanabanas, you’ll find U-Tiki Beach, a casual but modern eatery that you can easily spend an entire afternoon watching passing boat activity and taking in spectacular lighthouse views. Not to mention the well-rounded and well executed menu options that will fill you up along with the tasty cocktail selection. While the entire restaurant is open air, there are options to dine inside the restaurant or out on the deck, both replete with waterway views.
When dining beachside, the best part is typically the view. At Dune Deck, there are 2 elevated dining decks so that every seat is the best in the house, with direct beach and ocean views. Breakfast, lunch and brunch are the specialties here and they are consistently the best, using local produce to offer inventive dishes as well as the tried and true favorites.
Pizza Al Fresco
With “open air” as part of the name, it would be difficult to understand how this little gem would not be a foolproof outdoor dining option. As guessed, pizza is the recommended fare at this cherished Palm Beach locale. Nestled in a quiet corridor in Palm Beach, Pizza Al Fresco offers fantastic original pies with thoughtfully chosen supplemental additions while you enjoy a luxurious late lunch or a dinner underneath the South Florida stars.
If you need to work up an appetite before embarking on your ideal outdoor dining adventure, the Preserve at the Ironhorse is a perfect place to start. With a lush golf course, multiple tennis courts and other family friendly facilities, The Preserve at Ironhorse is an optimal way to appreciate a day in the Palm Beaches.
