Our family ate dinner here on our first night in San Pedro. My husband and I had delicious shrimp fajitas and my son had a great broiled lobster. Everything tasted great, service was wonderful and everyone is given chips and salsa,

“Relaxing, friendly dining experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

Most of the other reviewers have highlighted the great service and delicious food. I had the blackened snapper, hubby had the whole grilled fish special, both dishes were delicious as was the guacamole. Our resort gave us a 10% coupon plus it was 1/2 price margaritas. Would definitely return to Caliente!

“Casual beach-side dining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

I had heard that the food was good here, so stopped by one night for dinner. It's right on the water, with outside dining, and we were seated right away. The service was good, and the owner came out to chat afterwards to be sure everything was to our liking. I ordered the Maya Mar fish, which was a fish filet coated in "Maya spices", and topped with a corn-based sauce. It was fresh, delicious, and not hot-spicy, just very flavorful-spicy. The mild, slightly sweet corn sauce was a nice compliment. I would definitely go back again.

The staff offers a very warm welcome at this establishment. A restaurant located over looking the water, with indoor and outdoor seating! The Mexican inspired dishes are tasty. The guacamole was out if this world!

“Loved this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014

Right on the waterfront- Traditional Mexican- local owners. Loved that the owner walked around during dinner and introduced herself and asked about the food and service. Enjoyed talking with her - she even took one of our favorite family pics! Anyway- the food was delicious- steak tacos, yum! The rum ginger shrimp wrapped in bacon- double yum! This place is tops on my list!
