Best place in the village. Lovely staff. Good local food. Rum punch delicious. I was persuaded to try the Hurricane! My goodness it was strong....

Found this place through TripAdvisor reviews. Wouldn't have otherwise. It's behind a convenience store through which you have to walk to find it. Don't be deterred by that though. Once out there it's lovely and intimate on the beach overlooking the water. Our server was super friendly and the food and drinks were very good at a very good price.... More

I went for breakfast on this beautiful terrace. Until the breakfast eggs came late and cold. Then I dreamed of the friendly young man who brought warm and friendly eggs. He did not come the third time. Then I did not come any more.

This is a beachfront bar and restaurant that you access through a small general store. We both had pumpkin soup and then tried the goat curry and mahi mahi. Everything was well cooked. The fish was fresh. Wonderful beachfront views. Highly recommended.

Great location in downtown Calibishie. We had a great vegetarian lunch here and a tall, cold glass of sorrel, the local red drink made from boiling red flowers that grow on the mountain tops in Dominica. Fantastic!

Stopped by here for lunch the other day. Lovely little bar right on the beach. A very limited menu which was ( shrimp, fish or chicken) but was delicious and very reasonably priced. Service was pretty quick compared to the rest of Dominica. A lovely spot for lunch.

This unpretentious restaurant is situated at the back of the supermarket, on the main road in Calibishie, as a result it is obscured from view. However it is a gem of a restaurant, which looks out on to the Atlantic Ocean, made shallow by coral reefs. However the beautiful view is upstaged by the delicious Caribbean/Continental cuisine, caring service and... More

This restaurant is located on the beach side of the grocery store attached to it. They have an excellent bartender, who worked incredibly quickly to get drinks, foods, and clean up completed while still answering many of our questions. The food was great and the beach view provided a great atmosphere.
