Regrettably , Calvin's has closed down 😞😞 It will be missed. This was a good restaurant and hopefully other restaurants on the island will be able to fill the void.

It was a great restaurant with personal attention from the owners Herman and Rene. Sadly they served their last meal at New Years Eve and the restaurant is now closed and will reopen as a liquor store.

We were pleased that we could order one lunch and it was nicely presented on 2 plates. We also liked having half salad and half fries. The food was very tasty and well presented.
