“Great Live Music Spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

My husband and I had been to Calmos before, and knew that some nights are better than others for music. We checked in advance to find out what bands were playing and made reservations for an evening when there was a salsa band playing. The band was excellent. The food was better than you would expect from a basic beach bar. I had some really good trigger fish, my husband had chicken creole. Although he certainly finished all of his food, I think that mine was better. We loved being able to sit at a table with our feet in the sand, look at the ocean, eat dinner and listen to music. What's not to like?

“Simply excellent - attached to the beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

The waiter gave us an excellent fish recommendation off the menu which was the day's special. Drinks are good. Dessert you cant miss - hazelnut creme brûlée.

“Great!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

This is a wonderful beach bar cafe for lunch or dinner. The menu is simple but very good. The views can't be beat! Go for dinner on a night when they have live music. It's a really fun place!

“Bwahahaha...this is FUN!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

I gave this 5 stars because it really is fun to sit at a table on the beach with your feet in the sand and the wind in your hair. It's a great place to unwind after your flight into St. Martin or after a long day in the sun.
Calmos is super friendly and super casual. If you feel at all warm, you can dip your toes into the water while you sip your very, very potent drink.

Meals are quite good here, and there are nice local specials on the menu. Everything is prepared fresh and presented well. I had a freshly caught triggerfish...very nice.
