Description: Happy Hour: Tuesday - Saturday, 5:30pm - 6:30pm Dinner Service: Tuesday - Saturday, 5:30pm - 9:00pm We serve contemporary American cuisine in a relaxed, al fresco setting overlooking Caliza's stunning pool at Alys Beach. Retreat here after a day at the beach for quality food and drink paired with polished, friendly service. The menu centers on artisan, seasonal ingredients sourced from regional purveyors, showcasing our Gulf Coast locale. Expect an equal mix of healthy and indulgent sharable plates presented simply with bright, bold flavors that let the ingredients shine. The open-air bar is the perfect spot for happy hour, offering artisanal cocktails designed for poolside sipping and a thoughtfully curated list of craft beers and wines by-the-glass.

“Wait staff plus excellent food made this returning guest happy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2014

Once again, an excellent dining experience. Although this may have been our best trip to Caliza thanks to our Bulgarian waitress Elaine (or perhaps I do not have her name exactly right). She made the evening great by being thoroughly aquainted with every menu item and its preparation, as well as making excellent wine recommendations, providing a tasting of two different wines when my husband was unsure of his choice. Her endorsement of the crab cake appetizer was right on target. My daughter and I each ordered this as our entree and it was superb. The house salad was deliciously light, cold and fresh. The red velved cupcake dessert with cream cheese ice cream was incredible. Overall a five star experience. And I haven't even mentioned the atmosphere, which beats any restaurant I've experienced, hands down.

“Very nice atmosphere great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2014 via mobile

The dishes are chef inspired and the atmosphere was so nice. Our service was excellent, there were so many grilled choices not a lot of fried food here, and i like that. I will continue to bring guests to this place.

“Fun Happy Hour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013

I was just here last week on a girl's getaway and we hit up Caliza for Happy Hour almost every night. Beautiful place. I am a vegetarian so they made the guac bacon-free no issues and the truffle pomme frites were good too! Great drink prices on happy hour! (From 5:30-6:30 daily.) Very cute unique neighborhood. Walking distance from Rosemary Beach.

“Oh What A Night!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2013

My brother-in-law had heard good things about Caliza and suggested we eat there. We could not have been more pleased. The setting is absolutely beautiful and the layout of the swimming pool and the restaurant make an evening at Caliza an unforgettable experience. There were five people in our party and everyone ordered a different entrée--most of which were seafood. Everyone in our group raved about their choice. The service was impeccable and our waitress was warm and friendly and appropriately attentive. We plan to return to Alys Beach and we will make a return to Caliza a definite.
