I recall reading in the San Pedro paper last March about Elvi's daughter or maybe granddaughter who began her own restaurant operation. What is its name and where is it located? I seem to recall from the article a downtown location but can't seem to find it in any listing.

Thanks for your help.

Yes, it is Caliente's.
Jenny is Elvi's daughter.
It's on the beach in the Spindrift Hotel.
30 feet from The Infamous Pier Lounge!!!

My family enjoyed our meal at Caliente, though I thought it was a little pricey for what we got. The night we were there, in August, it also was very hot, with the breeze off the water not making it to our table. (That would be less of a problem this time of year.)

There has been little or no remodeling or upgrading since it was Little Italy, so don't go looking for a fancy setting.

Bottom line: In my opinion, it's one of the better places on the island but not really in teh same league as Capricorn, Rendezvous or even Elvi's, and not the value that a place like Papi's, The Reef, Carmen's, etc. is. I would eat there again, but it not often.

Caliente is very popular with people who live in San Pedro as a lunch place. The lunch menu is moderately priced and a good value. Most lunch items, except seafood plates, are about $10bz for plenty of food. The sauces (they come on the side) vary from mild to, well, caliente. If you get there about 11 or 11:30 AM, you can get one of the tables outside on the verandah between the main dining room and the Pier Lounge. There are also 3 or 4 tables along the front where the glass louvered windows offer breeze and great view of the beach and noonday water. You won't get this view at Papi's, The Reef or Elvi's.

I'm probably as close to a Caliente's "groupie", not grouper, as can be. I have lunch there most days. I love the food, staff, everything. And, that Jenny can surely cook. The Soups are nice. Tortilla and Lime. Bone Apertiff!!

Gone fishing!!

went to sp 2x last year & ate at Caliente both times...both times it was the best meal I had on the island, which isn't to say it's the best meal to be found there, but just that I don't think you'll be disappointed...have a great time
