After visiting several of the top rated restaurants in the area, we decided on Calizo and couldn't have been more satisfied with our decision. From drinks, to appetizer, entree, and dessert, everything was excellent. The staff is so attentive..not only our server but every other server is checking on you to be sure everything is perfect and it was!

We always have a phenomenal meal at Calizo. Just finished dinner with a party of 6. Excellent service and food!! You must get pitchers of red sangria. The food is wonderful. Try the lobster risotto, skirt steak, grouper, arepas, and mofongo. Ask for Felix as your server. He was great!! This is by far our favorite restaurant in Puerto Rico.... More
