Always in Roatan's top ten restaurants, Cals has been one of our favorites for over 10 years. The seafood is fresh, expertly prepare and reasonable priced. It should be on your "Roatan restaurant bucket list" while on the island.

Cool building, amazing view and the food is top notch too! Make sure to get to this spot at least once while visiting Roatan. It's a bit of a drive, but very much worth it!
