We had dinner and lunch at Calaloo during our weekend at Taboga! We enjoyed the food (Caribbean food with a Dutch touch!), great service and good vibe. Highly recommended!

If you like a small meal containing a lot of fat that's the place for it. The view is great, the local beer cheap. The ratio quality to price is, like everywhere on the island, very poor. Fish and chips in really low quality: 10$More

What a great place. Had lunch after a day at the beach. Owners were great. Shared a glass of 23 yr old rum with the freshest Ceviche. Also get the smashed fried plantains with the owners grandmothers peanut sauce recipe!
