This is an out of the way place that has spectacular views. Meal was great and the price was just right! I had the Lobster which was grilled with a wonderful sauce, (most of the time you grill lobster, it's ruined, this was nice and tender and moist. Service was good and the view spectacular from the covered dining area.

I really enjoyed my dinner at Cal's! After reading so many reviews, we knew we wanted to try this place. I ordered the fish tacos & they were absolutely delicious (& not spicy), but I will say be careful what you order especially if you are sensitive to spicy food. My sister-n-law ordered the spicy beef tacos & after 1... More

THE place to eat when in Roatan. Gourmet quality, local pricing, an incredible view and a great staff, make Cal's a must eat and see. Only open from Tuesday-Friday 10am-8pm, daily specials and tropical favorites on the menu. First lunch we had on Tuesday was a fresh Grouper fillet so good we went back for dinner but they were serving... More

I rank this restaurant on my world's top ten list. When you go, and you must go, you will be especially lucky if there's fresh fish on the menu - simply delicious. But everything's excellent - jerk chicken wings, tempura onion rings, blackened rib eye .... even the Island Burger - you can't go wrong.

Cal's was recommended to us by well-known island tour guide and Seagrape Plantation Resort staffer Cleve Bodden and he was spot on in his opinion of the place! We ate lunch at Cal's during a day of island exploration. What a cool place! The restaurant is built on a cliff overlooking the seashore. Much of the dining area is outdoors... More

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

This place is AMAZING!!!!! We went there mid afternoon after our tour guide took us. We pulled up and I was skeptical....not for long! once you get through the gate and walk into this establishment you are hooked. The view is breathtaking and the food is incredible. The prices were also very affordable. It is a place you MUST go... More
