Our monthly guide to Pompano Beach restaurant closures.
The state regularly inspects Pompano Beach restaurants for cleanliness and other sanitary and health related issues. Few restaurants get zero violations. Every so often, restaurants get a temporary closure. If they can rectify the situation they are likely to re-open within 24 hours. Some of the violations are egregious and requires the inspectors to take more serious actions.
This month there was one Pompano Beach restaurant closed temporarily due to a code violation.
Here are the highlights of the report for Oceano Bistro and Lounge, 1350 N Ocean Blvd, Pompano Beach, inside the Residence Inn Hotel:
- Basic – Dead roaches on premises. Observed approximately 8 dead roaches on top of chemical bucket at dish area. Observed approximately 20 dead roaches in glue trap on top of electrical box on wall next to dish machine. **Warning**
- High Priority – Roach activity present as evidenced by live roaches found. Observed approximately 8 live roaches on or near electrical box on wall under dish machine area and 2 live roaches on wall behind ice machine. **Repeat Violation** **Warning**
The restaurant was ordered temporarily closed and re-opened later in the day. The Oceano suffered from a similar situation, including a temporary closure in November of last year.

The restaurant is located inside of the Marriott Courtyard Hotel right on A1A. Although it is open to the public, it is not widely known. However, we have eaten there on multiple occasions and found the food to be tasty, the prices reasonable and the atmosphere friendly.
