This little restaurant is tucked away at the back of a general store. The restaurant is an open terrace with stunning views opening directly onto the sea. The staff are lovely and nothing is too much trouble. You can have just a relaxing drink or a snack or full meal. The wine list comprises of any they sell in the... More

We went here a couple of times, once for dinner and once for drinks. The service was very good and the location is directly on the water. The crab back dinner is highly recommended! Fronting the street is a good market where you can do your shopping after your meal.

Myself and a friend visited coral reef for the first time last month, we were greeted straight away and treated in such a friendly manner. That st lucian guy had a wonderful approach. my pina colada cocktail was great followed by the gorgeously flavoured shrimp and a large portion of rice peas and the plantain was the best so far...

Lovely spot by the sea at the back of the supermarket on the main drag. Unfortunately the kubuli's were not cold which is a big no no for me hence the rating of 3. Staff were nice, the owner in the shop is a trip, very friendly chap. The local food looked good too but we had already just eaten.

Coral Reef has been serving solid island food in a lovely space by the sea (in the back of Gus's grocery) for several years now. It is the most reliable spot for robust meals, with good rum drinks, at very reasonable prices you'll find in the area. I've never gone wrong with a meal at Coral Reef. As you leave,... More

While staying a week in Dominica, we were informed about this place by another restaurant owner. I glad he told us or we might not have found it. People who work at the store and restaurant are very friendly and helpful. The view is awesome and the prices are great. My husband and I shared a plate of the crab... More

This is our "go to" place for lunch and dinner. Small, open air restaurant Oceanside (literally) behind a small grocery store in Calibishie. Wonderful staff. Menu is local fare and very good always. Although choices are limited, if you have a special request, and let them know a day ahead, they'll make every effort to accommodate. We've spent several months... More

We ate here on our first night in Calibishe. The food was great, and the service was so warm. Rum punch was also great. Looking forward to going back soon.
