We had the coconut curry chicken. It was really good. The prices are very reasonable as well. I recommend eating here on thursday. The chicken drop takes place right next door. We ate outside and were able to enjoy all the excitement!

The food was excellent, but I was really disappointed to taste that my chardonnay had been watered down. If I hadn't just had that same brand the day before, maybe it wouldn't have been as apparent, but it was obvious to me and my husband concurred. I'd stick to bottled beer. The Belikin beer is great in all its varieties.

This was by far our favorite restaurant in Ambergris Caye. Caliente is a proud supporter of the liberty foundation, an orphanage for abandon and abused children in Belize. We had the opportunity of meeting the owner, she was very kind and hearing how they support this foundation in Ladyville Belize was touching. The drinks were outstanding and the food.. Wow.... More

We ate there 5 times. The food was delicious and fresh. The manager Melody was there everytime to ask how the food was. The waitstaff was friendly and attentive. The last time we ate there my boyfriend had already eaten 5 lobsters elsewhere. He ordered 1 that night and said it was the best on the island. This place should... More

My wife and I stopped in for dinner and after 10 meals so far in San Pedro, Caliente tops the list! My wife had the Coconut Shrimp. This is kind of a trip dish to prepare and they did it perfectly. I had the Jalisco with the catch of the day (red snapper) and I can't wait to finish the... More
