“Fresh, tasty, and friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

We went during a weekday afternoon, so the whole restaurant wasn't open. We ate out of the little lunch "kiosko" that was open. Combo 5 was awesome! Also probably my favorite pastelillos and tostones of our 10 day trip and we tried them at multiple places in PR. He fried the pastelillos while we waited rather than have them in a case waiting for people to come, like you see at most places.

“Great Food and Friendly Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

We were staying at a nearby resort for a conference and looking for a place to eat with a large group. Everyone wanted to go offsite to try some of the local cuisine and we were not disappointed. One couple in our group had actually gone to Calizo the night before and enjoyed it so much they recommended it to the group and ate there a 2nd time in as many days!! Jose was our server and he was wonderful. He was charming and provided great explanations about the food. His suggestions led us to order additional items we hadn't planned to try (without being pushy at all) and they were all wonderful. The sangria with a hint of amaretto was different than anything I'd had before and very good. We ordered the salmon and flank steak. Both were really good but the steak was surprisingly good. The salad was very good and enough to share and one in our group ordered the vegetarian entrée which turned out to be a huge plate of grilled vegetables. They truly have something for everyone on the menu and at very reasonable prices. The restaurant is clean and the staff very friendly. Overall a wonderful meal.

“Amazing food, staff, and restaurant setting.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

First of all this staff here was amazing. Jose my waiter was an amazing server as well as a great conversationalist. He was very helpful with everything with information about what to on our stay as tourists and even helped me back onto the road. Food was amazing! Crole food and Puerto Rican food done right gourmet style. The setting here was unique, the dining room was separate from the kitchen and bathrooms. There's also outside seating, but I chose to sit inside because there were tons of mosquitoes outside. The price was great for amazing food and service was quick. I definitely would come back to eat here next time I come to PR.

“Best traditional local food on the island”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

OK, ignore the chair moving review, and read the other (sensible) ones. The food here is trdaditional Puerto Rico, Mofongo etc. Beautifully presented by very friendly staff. Great fish, lobster, shrimp etc. nicely plated. We got there as it opened for the evening, and our waiter suggested we hang on for the owners to bring the lobster up from Fajardo market - we were glad we did, it was delicious!! Prices were very reasonable for the quality of food, I thoughoughly recommend this restaurant!
