We ended up wanting lunch late one afternoon. We tried a few places but they were all closed or serving snacks only as it was in between their usual lunch and dinner hours. We found Caliente's open and serving a full menu so we thought we'd give it a try. We sat outside on the patio enjoying the beach and people watching. We love Mexican food and all ordered different Mexican dishes. We found all of it to be very good. Excellent margaritas. Salsa was more of a chunky pico but was excellent. The service was outstanding. We would definitely recommend it!

This restaurant is right on the beach in the heart of downtown. They serve all kinds of seafood and some Mexican food. They are a little pricey but have really good food and atmosphere so probably worth it if you want a nice meal.

The fish with curry sauce was quite tasty and would order again in a heartbeat. The bacon wrapped shrimp are good but better as an app. (FYI I'm not a reviewer who throws 4 and 5's around so 3.5 is quality in my book)

Lunch for our group of 13 and we were treated with great service and truly tasty food. The deck seating was right out of a postcard or travel review slide show. Pricing seemed like a great deal. Wonderful experience in every way.

Located on the beach..great spot to catch the ocean breeze on a hot summer day. Friday Special 2 for 1 Margaritas!!! Best SALBUTES for lunch on Wednesdays. Wonderful Conch Fritters in season, but only 4 for $18BZ. Enrica especially provides great service including Spanish lessons. Gorditas here are also a favorite. Overall value is above average. Menu caters to Gringo tourists. Arrive early evening on Thursday to get a front row seat to the world famous "Chicken Drop".
