I have been there lots of time in my life. I worked in Debrecen for more than 8 months and every time I went to Calico, I appreciated the tasty dishes that the restaurant proposes. I love the fried turkey filled with cheese and served with peach sauce. Delicous. The rest of the courses are well cooked, portions are abundant... More

The food is great and the pirate-ship theme is just right - unique and fun without being cheesy or childish. You can go with pretty much anything on the menu and leave happier and heavier.

My husband and I have gone several times but always the same: extremely slow and poor service! Last time we were waiting our meal 75 minutes and the restaurant wasn't full. The food is good: tasty and big portions, but to be waiting more than one hour isn't worth. In addition, nobody came to explain or apologize about the situation.... More

I really like the design of this restaurant and the food is tasty (AND good portions for good price). The one thing I don't understand is why the majority of the side dishes is some kind of potato variation. When I was there with my family we ordered 4 different food and they all had the very same potato side... More

Great food coming at solid portions for a fair price. Also drinks are very reasonable. Although the staff's english is rather basic, they are fast, friendly and helpful. During the week, we went twice... ;)

The place was very busy, lot's of local people were there so it's quite popular. We had a good dinner too. Although I can't mention any extraordinary but the overall impression was very good. (food, wine, service, prices alltogether OK) I would recommend to try it!

It's a fun looking place, designed to look like the inside of a galleon. Amazingly it manages to pull it off without looking cheap! The food was varied and tasty, with a prompt waiters who it could be argued were a little a short on smiles. It didn't detract from a pleasant lunch in fun surroundings at all though.
