The restaurant at Grove Isle has undergone many incarnations over the years, Gibraltar is now under the direction Chef Ted Mendez, who has revamped the menu to highlight the many colors, flavors and fresh products indigenous to South Florida, all served in a very classic South Florida dining style, al fresco and waterfront. Gibraltar’s drawing card has always been its location and view, and now Mendez is stacking the deck with his talent and culinary whimsy.
