We ended up wanting lunch late one afternoon. We tried a few places but they were all closed or serving snacks only as it was in between their usual lunch and dinner hours. We found Caliente's open and serving a full menu so we thought we'd give it a try. We sat outside on the patio enjoying the beach and... More

This restaurant is right on the beach in the heart of downtown. They serve all kinds of seafood and some Mexican food. They are a little pricey but have really good food and atmosphere so probably worth it if you want a nice meal.

The fish with curry sauce was quite tasty and would order again in a heartbeat. The bacon wrapped shrimp are good but better as an app. (FYI I'm not a reviewer who throws 4 and 5's around so 3.5 is quality in my book)

Lunch for our group of 13 and we were treated with great service and truly tasty food. The deck seating was right out of a postcard or travel review slide show. Pricing seemed like a great deal. Wonderful experience in every way.

Located on the beach..great spot to catch the ocean breeze on a hot summer day. Friday Special 2 for 1 Margaritas!!! Best SALBUTES for lunch on Wednesdays. Wonderful Conch Fritters in season, but only 4 for $18BZ. Enrica especially provides great service including Spanish lessons. Gorditas here are also a favorite. Overall value is above average. Menu caters to Gringo... More

Imagine dining on the beach with the breeze cooling you off with some amazing fresh caught sea food. That is Caliente and his home made hot sauce is delicious.

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.
