Something different on South Padre! This is a lovely European restaurant and bar! The food is very good and service was warm and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner there - much better than our experience at Sea Ranch.

Cafe Kranzler is a bit of misnomer as it is not a cafe at all in my mind but one of the nicest restaurants on South Padre Island. The menu had a variety that you would expect if you were in Austin or Dallas, but...More
