Back last week. As usual, was great. Great service from Joele and Euri (the best server in San Pedro). Jalisco seafood special was awesome! Dinner burrito was delicious; got to have the horchata (local rice/nutmeg/cinnamon drink). Thanks, Mark

I recall having the nachos. Not great but not terrible. The margaritas were over priced. Not the worst place for a meal but there are much better options very close by. The staff are kind.

Dinner at Caliente was an awesome evening. Our waiter was quick and responsive and our food was fantastic. I’d highly recommend their Coconut Curry Shrimp. Great flavor and for once a restaurant doesn’t skimp on the amount of shrimp the put into their dish. The...More
