“good food, service not so good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

It was raining in San Pedro so I thought i would go to Caliente. I was the only one in the restaurant, so it was not like they were packed. Plus: food was good. jajapeno poppers = c+ Ordered the whole fish dinner which was very nice. Minus: Service was next to non existent. Enough said. Food ok, service not.

“Good oceanfront dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

Very good atmosphere, oceanfront view and next to chicken drop (Thursday night) is the happening place this area with the chicken games.
Good seafood, had the lobster with coconut curry, shrimp among other plates. Nachos nothing exciting but ok for Belize. Unfortunately not able to try enchiladas since they don't offer it for dinner.
Very good choice for dinner in San Pedro and best spot for Thursday night.

“HUGE Burritos!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

I ordered the veggie burrito and couldn't believe the size of it! I had to take it home with me for the next day's lunch. Not only was it big, but it was delicious as well!

“Great Mexican Restaurant with a Caribean Flair”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

We ate at the Caliente Mexican reastaurant twice in our day long visit to San Pedro. Lots of different dishes with Caribean flavors. Not your typical US Mexican restaurant. Great food and wondeful service.
