Great meal. Had fish tacos for dinner. Very fresh and tasty. Wait staff was friendly and fast. Could watch folks walk by on the main road of Taboga and see the ocean.

This 2nd level restaurant has an excellent view of the beach. Margaritas were excellent, tasty, and strong. Coconut martinis were fun and tasty, beer was cold. All cocktails and beer were reasonably priced, The Sea Bass fillet was fresh and prepared perfectly.

After a hot day wandering the town and beaches we came here for a cold beer and a bite to eat. The beer was great, the location lovely overlooking the town beach, but sadly the fish and chips we ordered were not too good. Tasty,but hardly any fish and all batter. There is a reasonable menu though to select from.

Some who don't cook much themselves and come to us for their favorite meals. We highlight local culture and foods at CALALOO as part of your experience visiting us.... More
