My wife and I ate here three times in our four day stay on SP. Guacamole salad was excellent and kept us coming back as much as anything else. Had fried chicken special, beef fajitas, coconut curry shrimp and soup and it was all really tasty. Very well run operation by the friendly manager who makes you feel very welcome.... More

We had seen this earlier in our trip but didn't stop until the last day. BEST strawberry daiquiris on the island. We had 2 pitchers. Food was very good. Servers were personable and attentive. Great logo T-shirts.

My wife and I ate here our first night in San Pedro. The outdoor patio gave a beautiful view of the beach and sea. The food was good, but after spending the next 3 days in San Pedro there are many better options. The staff is very friendly and gave great service.

Caliente handled our group of 12 like a champ! We made reservations (I would recommend trying to get reservations with any group over 6 trying to eat out on the island) They set us up beach front, our waiter was enthusiastic and fun.

We enjoyed the food and service at Caliente. The menu has an excellent variety and our large group tried a large variety of different dishes all of them were very good. It's location is excellent on the beachfront, nice patio area for dining and close to central park. Would dine here again.
