Simple nice place for meal. They were showing surf and scuba diving videos. Few drinks and had one of the dinner specials. Met some other scuba divers and got information on best dive shops. Good friendly people and know the area.

We got a tip to try this place out from our dive shop. The atmosphere is welcoming and the decor is very nice. In busier months (October is very slow) this place is probably packed. The staff was attentive at first, but as it got busier we didn't get all that much attention. (again, slow month so a lot of... More

I ate the chili grande, $7. My buddy had the corvina, $12. Both were very tasty & filling. Waitress was very kind & social, from Sweden. The beers were $2 I think. The restaurant was covered but open. Good atmosphere. The only disappointment was the $4 brownie, we thought was too small, & the $4 ice cream, 2 small scoops.... More

We spent our last night in Santa Catalina here and it was the best night in town. The pizza was delicious--excellent crispy crust and great toppings. We loved it.

We visited Chili Rojo a few times during our 4 night stay in Santa Catalina. The pizzas were really good although there was fairly limited choice. The staff were friendly and were very grateful for any tips. Definitely worth popping in for a drink. Film nights on Thursdays!

Dear Trip advisor it is unfair and very irresponsible to suggest any stomach problems to our establishment. If that was really the case, you should have approached us immediately. Stomach problems are related to different causes, even excessive alcohol consumption, dehydration or sun stroke and many others.. We take these things seriously, however since you never approached us, i believe... More

Pasta with tuna: Liked it even though it looked a wee simple. Atmosphere was great: 80's hit wonders... Met friends there while dining with new friends. Service was ok overall. I would go back again to try the Mediterranean pasta.
