“Cal's Cantina has gourmet food, great staff & service at a reasonable price; best in Roatan!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2012

Caribbean gourmet food prepared by chef Carl is consistently excellent. Blackened chicken Quesadilla & Beef Churasco, Chimie Churrie are delicious. Fresh seafood daily. Carl knows how to meld flavors so they surprise you when tasted. I was treated to a jerk pork chop recommended by my server Clinton, yum! Cal's Cantina wait staff is friendly, helpful and provide a relaxed atmosphere in a dining room with unique decor and great views. Very reasonable prices and full bar & wine service. Located east of First Bight mid island at KM marker 34-35 on Roatan's main road. Cal's is not to be missed in Roatan.
