“Tasty food, nice athmosphere”

Ranked #8 of 19 Restaurants in Garberville

Restaurant details
Reviewed 5 May 2014

We went for Cecil's but that was a little too expensive for our travel budget. So we went across the street to Calico's. What a suprise! I had a delicious tortellini with chicken, artichoke and fresh tomato sauce. My boyfriend had the tuna griller and we shared a combo of three different salads. All fresh, home made and very tasty. Totally different compared to all the bland food you find elsewhere.
You order at the first counter and pay for your food and get your drinks (nice wine!) at the second. When your order is ready, they call your name. The staff is lovely, no dirty tables, a different experience than other people here. Probably because we are from Amsterdam, we like and are used to a laid back and cozy athmosphere like this. And with real, fresh food.

When it's good it is great, when it's bad it's just bad not awful, just bad. The pasta here can be really good, especially the ravioli. The service is usually mediocre. The restaurant table areas could use a little more cleaning attention. The best advice is to call in or drop off an order and pick it up to take out. I think it was always meant to be a deli but they added tables to satisfy demand. It's still one of the best options in this limited area.

We went to calico's on a slow night. Ordered 2 bowls of beef stew (on special) and waited 20 minutes meanwhile patrons who ordered after us received their burgers and fries first. Once our food came up at counter we asked for soup spoons were told they were dirty as worker pointed to table filled with dirty dishes. We were given teaspoons. At first bite we discovered stew was cold!!! When we told staff they became belligerent and rude. We requested a refund. Worker sticks his fingers in the stew and states it's warm!! He then became more confrontational as we continued to request a refund to the point he threatened to throw my husband out. We will NEVER go back and hope Karma handles it!!

The menu was extensive and since I am a vegan, I was thrilled that I had many choices to choose from. But, there is a strange vibe in this place. The food was good and plentiful. My family all found things to eat on the menu. They only accept cash, which was evident by the "solar" cash machine in the deli. Stores and restaurants close of up early in the evening in this town, so this was the only restaurant open.

The cook was yelling and the girls behind the counter don't serve, cant bus their tables, leaving food and dirt on them, and they don't even serve the food. you have to go pick it up when its done and it takes over an hour to get your plate of burger and fries,.
