Far from the typical tourist destinations, the food is worth the drive. We supped on fish, burgers & sundaes. Delicious! And the view ain't bad either. Great hideaway to grab a bite to eat.

The first visit to Cal's Cantina was so good, we went back a second time. First of all the location high on a hill outside of French Harbor, overlooking the Caribbean is fantastic. The food is equal to the location. Carl creates some amazing dinner...More
