I had the best time enjoying the Friday night special of Rita's and Chicken Tacos! The service was superb, the food was amazing and the drinks were the perfect blend of tequila and lime. I loved the positive motivational messages painted on all the tables and the staff made me feel like I was part of the family. One of... More

We stopped in here to grab a drink and wait for the rain to stop. We saw some of the plates of food coming out and decided to eat here. It was delicious! We ended up eating one meal a day here during our 5 day stay. We tried different things each time, the shrimp tacos were awesome.

We stopped in for a late lunch and ordered the burrito and the fajitas. The fajitas consisted of onion, peppers, tough overdone steak strips and a single XXL flour tortilla. Not sure what to do at this point, too large to wrap so cut up wrap into smaller pieces and made mini soft tacos with it. Ordered strawberry daiquiris and... More

We arrived on a Friday evening around 6p. Sat down on the outside deck at a table against the building, but just as we were sitting down, the greeter noticed a couple getting up that had been sitting at a table overlooking the beach; without being asked the greeter pointed that out and suggested we might want to snag it....

Had a great meal here with a friend and a relaxing, enjoyable evening. We reserved a table with a view of the "chicken drop" next door, which was fun to watch. Owner Mellie even stopped by our table & we had a really nice chat, nice touch! Would definitely recommend Caliente's!

The title of my review says it all. You must try the Bacon Wrapped Ginger Rum Shrimp. It was beyond all expectations. My husband had the chicken fajitas and loved them but I found him stealing more of my shrimp!

Lovely spot just in front of the water taxis, and really good Mexican food and lots of it. The service is really good, and the tables have interesting messages on them!

The service and view were great but the food was just ok for the price. We had lots of other meals on the island that were much more memorable.

This place was kind of tucked away from the street at the back of a hotel but it was right on the beach and had a nice view of the ocean. This place was probably had really good bang for your buck -- I ordered a lobster burrito. The menu said it was 10 inches but it seriously looked to... More

We were very disappointed with our meals at caliente. We had enchiladas and the gringo. Food wasn't very good. Cheese wasn't melted in our meals. No sides came with the dish even though they were pictured on the menu. Price was not worht the quality or quantity. Service was amazing though and atmosphere was great.
