What a wonderful experience and service! The best skirt steak I have had and the seafood is to die for. Have the viandas salvajes; you won't regret it. Hector's service was impeccable. This will become one of my favorites.

Thank you for your recent visit and review. Yes, the rustic roots are an innovated way enjoy everyday (viandas or how us locals call them, verduras).

We visited Calizo during our recent stay at Las Casitas at Conquistador Hotel in Fajardo. While we were very pleased with the hotel and service, we were very disppointed with the food so we ventured to go outside for dinner.

I made a reservation at the end of March for a dinner in April. After our tour of the bio bay, we were looking forward to our dinner. When we pulled up, the place was locked up tight and closed. If they decided not to open on the evening of our reservation, they should have at least called.
