My husband and I went to Caliente for a light dinner. We sat on the patio which had a great breeze from the ocean and ordered guacamole, taquitos and the sopa de lima. All were super yummy but my favorite was the soup!

Avoid Thursday night as the noise from the neighboring chicken drop can get LOUD. So fun. Great service - even set up a special table right on the beach for us. Great view and fair prices
