Food was great as well as the location. The shallow waters were nice to walk around in. It's super breezy and chill. The hours fly by quickly

Do not miss The Coral Reef during your stay in Calibishie! The food was very affordable and excellent. We ordered a tuna and shrimp meal that were to die for. The staff were friendly and helpful. I honestly did not want my meal to end...so we ordered more drinks and ice cream and made it last. Well worth your money!!... More

Quality of the food and friendly staff (kudos to Sherlon) and so reasonable pricing made this our number 1 choice for many of our nights...if the daily specials don't suit you, just order from the menu...and modifications?...no problem...offerings can be adjusted to your liking, I.e. no curry, etc...fabulous views and seafood fresh off their reef..don't fall for the hype of...

Visit Corral Reef Restaurant for an authentic Dominican meal that's affordable and provides one of the best views in Calibishie. Gus is the owner, and they have an excellent staff that will attend to all your needs.

Located in downtown Calibishie, this restaurant is in the rear of a small grocery store. There are tables next to the bar as well as in an adjacent shelter. It is open air and right on the water's edge. We were there for breakfast our first day in Dominica, and while we were there a hard rain shower occurred. Plastic... More

A great place for a relaxing coffee, a fresh bake, a cold beer, or a full meal. Don't let the fact that it's part of a grocery store fool you -- the food and people are wonderful!

The Coral Reef is the best place to eat on the northern coast of this great island. It is at the back of a grocery store right in town. They have a few tables on the patio right on the beach. There is no printed menu. It changes daily. We ate there three times. The restaurant Poz was OK but... More
