Always in Roatan's top ten restaurants, Cals has been one of our favorites for over 10 years. The seafood is fresh, expertly prepare and reasonable priced. It should be on your "Roatan restaurant bucket list" while on the island.

Sorry, don't recall, but most places seemed very accommodating so maybe stop by and take a look. I know that they are not open every day so be prepared for that.
