Great food, great view, great story behind the place! We had a lovely evening. Lobster meal was massive and Key lime pie, best ever!! Highly recommend for a rustic, island experience with the taste of a high class restaurant!!

We went here for a great dinner. The view is incredible. We enjoyed several cold beers and enjoyed the view. We got hungry so we ordered the lobster scampi. It was fantastic. The lobster was perfectly cooked. I highly recommend this place.

We went during a very rainy day on our tour. The view was foggy but one could tell on a nice day, it would be unreal!! I had lobster tails which were excellent! (Grilled, I am a seafood dealer from the east coast and it was awesome to experience lobster in another region), my daughter and son had nachos which... More

This restaurant has a great location - 180 degree view of the ocean. Hamburger and Caesar salad were superb! Fish tacos were fried fish but tasty. Lobster tails were really drenched in butter and garlic, Plenty of food even the lobster appetizer. Very nice people and worth a stop.

This is the chef's avocation, great food in an awesome place for the road travellers of Roatan. Most come for the view and stay for the food. Get the lion fish if they have it. And try to not be too distracted by the view, the food is really good.

Amazing views, the food was excellent and by far the quickest service I have seen anywhere on the island. Lobster was perfect cooked and plentiful. Wings were large and cooked properly. A homemade hot sauce made the meal complete.

Cal's is a little, non-assuming place along the side of the road that you might just drive past (which we did several times) if someone didn't make you stop there. However, stopping here is something that everyone who visits Roatan should do! Walking through the entrance onto the expansive deck with the incredible 180 degree view of the ocean, the... More

We went to Cal's on a day of exploring the island with a rented Jeep. The food was wonderful and the view stunning. Fresh fish choices were great.
