find yourself very sorry that had a bad experience when paying, but our prices are like fajardo area restaurants, we also have offers 2 eat for 49.99 or a small kiosko by side with more affordable prices, perhaps for the next we can accommodate you.

“Great seafood!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

We stopped in at Calizo on our way to the bio-bay tour the other night. We were originally just looking for a quick dinner, but thought the patio looked nice so we decided to stop in. Everyone in our party ordered some sort of seafood dish. I had the mahi-mahi with delicious mamposteao rice, my husband had the octopus mofungo, a friend had the grouper, and the other had the halibut. We all agreed that this was the best meal we had the whole trip. The service was also excellent - we started our meal outside but when the waiter noticed some ominous looking clouds heading our way he set up a table for us inside so we wouldn't have to run inside while carrying our food and drinks.
I highly recommend this place if you are staying in Fajardo or just driving through.

“Fantastic Fajardo Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

We spent a week in PR and stayed in Fajardo and happened upon Calizo. Our family liked it so much we came back a second time. The service and food is exceptional. We had two great waiters, Jose and Hector, both personable and helpful. We wanted to dine al fresco and when Jose noticed we were batting away misquitoes, he came out with two cans of Off for us to use. It was so appreciated. This restaurant has fantastic sangria and wonderful seafood - especially the salmon and the "3 Seasons" entrée. Highly recommend this restaurant! Clearly one of the best!

“Deliciously perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

Staff was very friendly, the food was AMAZING! The gentleman cooking is a magician with seafood. I had the mofongo with shrimp and their calizo house sauce....WOW! My husband had the sword fish with spinach and asparagus...cooked to perfection. We were delighted to have found such a hidden jewel, it made our visit to Puerto Rico extra special...thank you.

“Best Ever food and service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014 via mobile

My family loved the freshly made sangria! It was the perfect start to the best meals we have ever had! We had the whole red snapper, the paella, the swordfish and the grouper ... Amazing flavor and presentation. Jose was our server. Most welcoming, knowledgeable, kind along with everybody who worked there. What an experience they provided! 4 thumbs up from my fam!
