Every year we go to Roatan, every year we eat a couple of meals at Temporary Cal's and every meal is great. Order anything that sounds good to you -- everything is a great choice. To me, this is the casual dining, "you can't go wrong" restaurant on Roatan. Relaxed, great views, outdoor dining in the breezes, cold beer, great... More

Cal's Cantina is such a cool spot! The whole restaurant is outdoor/open air with treetop views over looking the south side of the island and ocean. Stunning views!! Try to get there before sunset to make the most of the scenery. Be sure you spray on bug spray before you go or take it with you as you will be... More

Very good food, especially for the price. Had fish tacos for $8, wow. We sat on a curved deck overlooking the ocean and... More
