I've been going to Caliente for 20 years and in that time I must have taken at least twenty visitors there. Every one of them has been impressed and we (my wife and I) keep coming back ourselves. The food is always beautifully prepared and presented; the menu is unique, with an impressive combination of vegetarian and meat dishes; the wine list is small but excellent; and the atmosphere is welcoming and gently funky. The only thing the menu lacks is fish dishes (apart from salmon cakes and a couple of prawn-based items), but it makes up for that by the originality of everything else. This is food prepared by food lovers - and yet at an affordable price.
