We love Cal's. It is a must do restaurant for us. Carl is a wonderful chef and the food here is worth the drive no matter where you are on the island.

Perched up high on the hill with a great view. Jerk wings were nice and spicy. Fried shrimp had a Cajun type seasoning. Yucca fries were a pleasant surprise. Cheap rum and cokes. We’d go back, but timing is everything. Only open Tuesday- Friday.

This restaurant is perched on a hillside edge overlooking the green forests below and the ocean off in the distance. The views alone made the trip worthwhile. We ordered the fish tacos and had to take a picture of the dish before eating to capture...More

You might almost miss this place as you drive past on the main road, as it's pretty unassuming from the front, but the food is delicious, the service was excellent, and the view down into the bight and down the island is unparalleled. Dining is...More
