“Cute little place with some drawbacks.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

We got here 40 min. Before we had to be around the corner for an excursion at 8:40am. We got there just after 4 guys walked in and were the only people there. We figured we'd have enough time to eat if we got some basic food. Ordered 2 smoothies and scrambled eggs w/ ham and 1slice of pie. Didn't get the food until exactly 40min later. The food was decent but nothing special. Good price, $23. People were friendly.

“So good we went back a second time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

We stopped for lunch the first time and went back for breakfast the next day. Our server was so sweet and all of the food was excellent except for the french fries (yes our "American to a t" friend ordered french fries). The atmosphere is nice because its a small family run cafe with minimal seating. You could just relax and watch people walk by. We loved it!

“Best food in Montezuma!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014 via mobile

We ate a couple of times at Kalibo whilst on our honeymoon in Montezuma, and really glad we took the time to stop there. The service pretty much everywhere in Montezuma can be a tad slow, but its kind of just part of the whole mood of the town.. when you're in paradise with no tight schedules its hard to be too bothered! The food at Kalibo is definitely the most worth the wait though, it is AMAZING. We had the best fish tacos ever, and some beautiful salads, served by the super friendly owners who love to have a chat with customers. Its relatively good value too, but we will mostly always remember their smiles and delicious food! Thank you Kalibo!

“Coconut Pie...OMG!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2013

Coconut Pie & Mango Pie are out of this world. Had vegetarian chiliquiles (ordered medium but still hot so order lite) Yum! Owners Cremina (speaks English) & spouse Jose are great. Supports the childs orchestra in town, that their daughter's in, & gives away day old bakery items to elderly/kids/poor locals. Yes a little dusty but visit restaurant after 1pm, until 3 pm when there's no buses & you just finished your hike to the waterfalls.
