We enjoyed a nice girls night out at this lovely restaurant. The service was top notch, so nice to gaze over the pool. The cocktails were delicious. The root salad was our favorite.

Went for cocktails. We had their most popular - strawberry infused vodka with ginger, simple syrup, mint , and soda. They were excellent! The surroundings are amazing. It feels like a movie set from the 1940's. It must be experienced to appreciate.

If you are looking for an unusual restaurant setting, then go to Caliza. It's on the perimeter of the pool, and the views are very pretty. The service and the food was very good! Breadsticks and olive oil are awesome! We will be back!

First of all, the place is gorgeous. It feels as though you could be in the South of France or Morocco. The stunning chandelier in the outdoor entry compliments the exotic ambience. With three dinner guests, that are very picky , one gluten intolerant and three that do not eat meat or chicken, it was touch and go at the... More

Pros: Beautiful setting, great atmosphere, good (but pricey) cocktails, great service. Cons: Terrible food, uninspired menu, inedible desserts, no soap in the ladies bathroom, expensive. This is a great place to come for a drink before going someplace else to eat. The scenery is gorgeous with an elegant and sophisticated atmosphere that takes you to the rich playgrounds of Morocco.... More

The place has a great decor but is quite secluded and out of the way. We ended up having a rain storm while we were there which really limited our options as most of the restaurant is outside.

Our family goes to Rosemary Beach twice a year, we had tried to eat at restaurant in June but no availability. We did go in August and I expected it to be excellent since it was so busy in June. The setting was perfect and friendly staff, however the food was average.

While staying at SanDestin took the 30mile drive over to Alys Beach on the recommendation of a friend to try out Caliza and it was worth the drive. Restaurant surrounds the owner's pool at Alys Beach resort. The atmosphere was amazing and I felt like I was in a Moroccan Bazar. The food and service was perfect across the board... More

The 30A area is full of fabulous restaurants, but Caliza takes amazing to the next level. Not only is the food delicious, but the atmosphere is one of the coolest I've ever experienced. The dining is set alongside a gorgeous pool. The architecture feels like Morocco, Dubai...This is a must experience kind of restaurant. It is expensive and I would... More

Beautiful setting and great service here at Caliza. Our children were welcomed - we asked and were told about special selections including grilled chicken, house made pasta, and fried shrimp. Everything we tried was delicious. Don't miss the avocado toast appetizer - perfectly balanced acidity with the pickled radishes on top. Yum. Everyone left here happy.
