Palm Beach is a luxurious destination where tourists and locals alike expect perfection in both ingredients and presentation.
Here are recommendations for a few romantic restaurants at resorts that will satisfy your every craving.
1. Catch of the Day:
Temple Orange at Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa

Drink: Fresh red sangria
Eat: the fresh catch of the day and sample a little bit of everything from the buffet
2. Best Views in Town:
Blue at Boca Raton Resort & Club
Peer out of the floor-to-ceiling windows at The Blue and take in the panoramic bird’s eye vantage point of the Intracoastal waterway and Atlantic Ocean below. Perched atop the 27th floor of the historic hotel, the view is a showstopper. And so is the food.
