About Us & Our Weekly Events


Lona offers Ft. Lauderdale eclectic, soulful Mexican cooking from Chef Pablo Salas in a chic, yet funky environment. Complete with a gorgeous indoor/outdoor bar, casually elegant interior dining room, a special tequila tasting room and multiple private dining spaces, Lona is the perfect spot for any occasion. Lona – which translates to “canvas” from Spanish – serves lunch and dinner daily with a sister space, nicknamed Tinta (Spanish for “ink”), handling breakfast. A tattoo devotee, Salas’ body is a living canvas and the restaurant, a clean slate, the canvas, for his culinary creations.

No great Mexican restaurant is complete without an equally great bar. With seating both indoor and outdoor, the bar offers a special menu of snacks, small plates and tacos as well as a selection of agave-centric craft cocktails, freshly-made margaritas (no premade mixes here!), house-made sangrias, Micheladas (perfect for the beachfront vibe) and, for true tequila worshipers, agave flights.  

Lona brings something truly unique to the region: quality service, cuisine and setting of a high-end restaurant with the laid-back fun, approachability of a casual waterfront Mexican cantina. Warm earth tones, natural wood tables and chairs, and Santa Fe-style planters sprouting lush foliage and cacti evoke an inviting and lively atmosphere. The décor and design deliver an ambiance equal parts chic beachside cantina and homey hacienda.
