“Excellent food and service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Excellent food and service! Highly recommended for tourists and local clients as well. We invited friends from Florida and they loved it!!! The appetizers were great, specially the prawns in spicy sauce and the seafood croquettes, amazing!!! For dinner we ordered the whole fried grouper, skirt steak, fresh mahi mahi fillet and lobster, everything was delicious!!!

“No charge for pigeon poop”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

We had appetizers including calamari and some sort of fritter both overpriced and not particularly good. To stave off starvation and not go bankrupt we ordered a hamburger which was not bad.
Midway into our meal a bird pooped on my knee which the waiter who was surly merely handed me a napkin for the damage. The owners father was at the bar and came over to chat and gave us a coupon for two sangrias on return which we would not and you should not either, there are better places, for instance a little up the street La Estancia.

“Great food, don't understand why it's not more popular with the tourist crowd.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

Just right down past la estacion, and a good value in comparison to other spots in the area. Ordered the skirt steak on the mofongo every time, with a side order of asparagus which came with sautéed mushrooms and spinach with olive oil and garlic. The skirt steak has lots of big chunks of beef and a good mix of veggies and an amazing sauce. I loved this dish and my mouth still waters thinking about it. The service was very good, and the atmosphere is cool with a fountain in the middle. Only negative is the price, but it's in line with everyone else's prices in pr which are all tourist high IMHO.

Huge fan of what they are doing in the kitchen, this is the hidden gem in the area.

My wife and I ate at Calizo on Christmas night. She had the grouper and she loved it! I had the skirt steak with mufongo, it was excellent! Our waiter was Clay, he was friendly very efficient.
Would highly recommend, nice outdoor eating area with a fountain.
