We found this restaurant late in our trip or would have been there more than twice! First night we had Coconut Curry Snapper and Blackened Snapper and both were seasoned to perfection. This is a family run restaurant and the Chef is AWESOME! The Chef's sister met us after the meal to be sure everything was okay and we could... More

This is a great place for beach and people watching in San Pedro, with tasty casual fare at reasonable prices. The guacamole is excellent. Coconut chicken fingers were paired with a spicy peanut sauce, perfect for a beach sunset. The grouper sandwich also won praise. Service was good, and the manager came by several times to see that we had... More

I highly recommend the coconut curry snapper or blackened snapper! The chef uses family recipes to create a unique flavor I've never experienced. Family owned and excellent service! So good we ate here twice.

Our family ate dinner here on our first night in San Pedro. My husband and I had delicious shrimp fajitas and my son had a great broiled lobster. Everything tasted great, service was wonderful and everyone is given chips and salsa,

Most of the other reviewers have highlighted the great service and delicious food. I had the blackened snapper, hubby had the whole grilled fish special, both dishes were delicious as was the guacamole. Our resort gave us a 10% coupon plus it was 1/2 price margaritas. Would definitely return to Caliente!

I had heard that the food was good here, so stopped by one night for dinner. It's right on the water, with outside dining, and we were seated right away. The service was good, and the owner came out to chat afterwards to be sure everything was to our liking. I ordered the Maya Mar fish, which was a fish... More

The staff offers a very warm welcome at this establishment. A restaurant located over looking the water, with indoor and outdoor seating! The Mexican inspired dishes are tasty. The guacamole was out if this world!

Family owned restaurant. Caliente was an amazing place to eat. The food is great: fresh, tasty, well-balanced, varied. Don't miss out taco night: tacos are incredibly good and fairly cheap. The view is pretty and the staff is professional. A must-go if you're in San Pedro.

We ate here several times and found it to be consistently very good. It has good Mexican food, as well as local favorites and sea food. The chicken burritos were huge and delicious, and we also enjoyed the curry dishes. Nice beachfront deck and very friendly staff. The woman who manages the restaurant always was welcoming and stopped by each... More
