A fair restaurant of the beach front at san pedro. The food was average although not bad for the price as it was a little cheaper than many of the other restaurants on the island.

Our family of five enjoyed a nice lunch on our last day in Belize. They have a great location right downtown on the water front. The food and drinks were very good, and the views hard to beat. The staff were very friendly and chatty....More

stopped by for a late lunch, around 3pm, so it was quiet. service was friendly, offering complimentary chips and salsa. We ordered conch fritters, coconut curry, shrimp gringas, and horchata. It was all pretty tasty, though horchata was a little watery. Takes credit card.

We have been eating coconut chicken and drinking margaritas at Caliente for years every Friday night before we leave San Pedro to come home. They are on the beach and the food and service are both fantastic with half price margaritas on Fridays!

I had the deep fried fish with rice. The fish was okay. I would go back and try something else. The service was great, made sure all my requests were fulfilled in a timely manner.

Great food, excellent service, and superb homemade habanero sauce to spice it up. Enrique waited on us all three times and I'd recommend this restaurant. I ate a different item each time and it was all yummy as was everyone's food at our table.

Great restaurant on the sea. The food was good and the best was the blackened snapper. Lobster Ceviche wasn't our favorite, but we found out the lobster is just tough everywhere. Stick with conch and shrimp. Yummy!
