Great stop for lunch on the way to Sanibel! Cuban sandwiches were delicious and cooked to order. Sangria was very good! Nice find.

Maybe not a five-star restaurant, but at least a four star value. A nice neighborhood restaurant with very friendly staff and excellent food. My son-in-law, Juan, who is from Columbia says it is very authentic with a wide selection of good Colombian food. Prices are very reasonable for the quality of food.

If you are looking for a quick and inexpensive fix of Columbian cuisine, it's a good fit. If you want fresh, near homemade quality Columbian grub, look elsewhere. Although good in flavor my meal looked and tasted like it had sat in a warmer for quiet a while. Not likely to return.

The outside appearance of Cali Viejo isn't too great but the decor inside is delightful with Colombian artwork and lovely tile floors. It is small so I was glad we were there early.

Brandon is has so many restaurant choices that you sometimes get in a rut and eat at the same ones because you know they are good. Cali Viejo had a great selection, excellent service and... More

I went into this restaurant and found it to be very clean. There were only Hispanic customers in the place, which told me I have come to the right place. I got the feeling that the staff was surprised to see me walk in, but they were extremely helpful and unbelievably nice. There was no problem with a language barrier... More
