Buy your Chicken Drop tickets early, then come enjoy the madness from a safe distance on the ocean front patio at Caliente. Our bartender Ruth recommended we try this restaurant, and she was, as usual, spot on. The owner greeted us warmly and seated us ocean front while describing the night's special: Seafood Vera Cruz. It was even better than... More

Our first night we walked by this place on the beach and were seduced by the margarita "special". They were very good. My bacon wrapped shrimp dinner was fabulous, but perhaps a bit overpriced for the portion size. I also customized my side to a salad instead of the standard rice and potatoes which didn't seem like a good pairing.

The food was not bad, but nothing to write home about. I had the enchiladas rojas which were a little bland, but the house made hot sauce more than made up for it.. The view from the back deck was nice and the staff were very friendly. Plus the service was quite speedy i must say...

My hubby and I were referred by another restaurant owner that was closed that day, Papuusa's. You walk all the way you the front and have a beautiful sea view. Their combo shrimp, lobster and Conch was the best we've had down here. We highly recommend this place. A cool easy kick back vibe.

A group of friends and I wanted to end our last day on San Pedro on the beach, in the sun, and with some excellent food. Caliente did not disappoint. Joel, our server, was great! His personality epitomized everything our group has come to love about Belize! Such great hospitality. The food was phenomenal and came out quickly. We could... More

Our party of 10 arrived late and without a reservation and were welcomed. Food was delicious and this family owned restaurant made us feel right at home. Owners do a lot to support the local community so we felt good to support them. Win/Win!

The Sopa de Lima is fantastic! We ate here a few times and enjoyed every dish we ordered. I highly recommend the taquitos and enchiladas. The restaurant is right on the beach and you can choose to eat inside or outside.

Delicious food (I had the house special, fish marinated in tequila), great atmosphere on the porch, very fair prices. One of our best meals in San Pedro.
