Ordered the hors d'oeuvres, views of the water
Straight from the page of your favorite author
“Hors d'oeuvres” (French for “appetizers”) means they are eating in a hotel with a view of the water. Which is a beautiful setting similar to something a famous author would write ina book.
“Oeuvres” also means writings, which relates to the next line: “Straight from the page of your favorite author”
This could be a reference to author Ernest Hemingway, who lived in Florida, spoke French, and often wrote about water.
