We were told about Cal's from a couple we met on a cruise. We do not go to Roatan now without eating at Cal's. We have never been disappointed and the view is fabulous! We will be there again in three weeks.

The food there is the BEST on the island. Very professional waitstaff. I had the spicy fried shrimp and it was fantastic. If you are lucky, chef Carl will have made coconut pie. Try it! WOW! Did I also mention it has the BEST views?...More

Quite a ways away from the usual tourist spots on the island sits this small restaurant with an incredible view toward the south. I'm told you can see the mainland on a clear day. The menu is on a board so you know right away...More

I'm not sure why this is called "Temporary Cal's". Cal's is great for food with a view. Island specialities like fish and shrimp with fried plantain. Rice and beans. Or American style steaks. Good food. This is an outside restaurant on the side of a...More

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.
