We absolutely loved this restaurant. We have a vegan in the family and it is difficult to find good food for her. The tapas choices were many and we enjoyed the fried plaintaines. There was a lovely vibe cariibean atmosphere and GREAT cocktails

Toujours chaleureux, tres sympa. Ricardo est tres charmant et attentif. Ce soir la, il etait tout seul et donc, nous etions dans a l'heure des Caraibes. Les cocktails etaient fantastiques! Nos amis Americains ont apprecie les cocktails et la cuisine. En Anglais: Great relaxed evening with Ricardo's fantastic cocktails (try the Caribbean Tonic, and the Passionfruit mojitos), and tapas platters like Calabash Hungry et Island Breeze. Once you find it, you want to come back again and again! Bravo Ricardo et un grand merci de la part de nos amis des Etats Unis.

We loved the food as an alternative to the more traditional European fare. It was great but not overly spicy and the variety was very good. It was a pleasure to meet the chef, Kim, and her son Ricardo.

Calabash was an interesting find in Bordeaux. It's not often one is able to enjoy Caribbean food in France. The tapas were varied and well-prepared. The cocktails (featuring rum) were excellent! Our host was very attentive and welcoming.

Delicious food and friendly service! The saltfish fritters were my favorite and we had yummy cocktails. There is also a great rum menu. A perfect way to spend a chilled out evening with friends.

I was reluctant to spend my one night in Bordeaux in a non French restaurant, but went for it based on reviews and because of more choice for my veggie wife. Very friendly, amazing food and drink and great music. Just go!
