WOW! What an incredible place.. I can't decide what I love most- the upbeat vibe, the beautiful decor that makes you feel like you're in the heart of Mexico, the delectable lobster enchiladas, and the friendliest staff ever. Thank you for such a wonderful night out, Calaveras!!!!!!!!!! <3 I don't know how anyone could leave here feeling less than amazing!
My girlfriend and I decided on a whim one day to eat some Mexican food. She’s from the Jupiter area, and suggested we try Calaveras. On this day, our lives changed forever.
Ever put something in your mouth and forget everything you think you know about food?
Ever eat food so good that other food will never be good enough ever again?
Ever salivate so much upon seeing your food coming that you have to hook up to an IV to rehydrate vital nutrients for survival?
Think I’m exaggerating? Do I look like someone who would exaggerate?
How often is it that you love a restaurant so much that you eat there every weekend for 2 months straight without getting tired of it in the least bit? Has that ever happened? Did we make history?
So many questions, and all of them answered at this fine, fine establishment located in the quaint Harbourside.
I’ll leave you with this...
You can’t learn to swim sitting on the edge of the pool.
And when it comes to my pool, I prefer it to be filled with Calaveras salsa and queso.
Calaveras Cantina....thank you for providing my sweet girlfriend and I with a place to engorge ourselves on the finest Mexican cuisine known to man without fear of judgement for our grotesque consumption of mass quantities of tacos and chips/salsa.
The enchiladas are amazing too. It’s all amazing.
A group of us from Texas visited Jupiter last month & ate at this restaurant We were so impressed with their food! We weren't expecting much since we love our Mexican food in Texas, but this place was Awesome!! We are still missing the food. My personal favs were the shrimp tacos, shrimp flautas, duck empanadas & fish tacos. The table side guacamole is a must! Everything we tried we loved! I also discovered my new favorite drink (coconut mojito). The atmosphere was very inviting & we loved the decor. They have an outdoor seating area that's great if you like to eat outside (which we do). Don't pass up this gem! We need a restaurant like this in Dallas! Hint, hint!
Calaveras Cantina has quickly become the go to spot for outstanding Mexican cuisine in a fun, funky and creative waterfront location at Harbourside Place. The festive atmosphere is anchored by a craft cocktail bar utilizing fresh juices, purees, delicious infusions and creative mixology is perfect for a night out, lunch with friends or right off the boat. Yes, you can dock and dine or just grab a signature margarita after a day on the water, this the only Mexican restaurant that I know of where you can do this. You cannot go wrong with their homemade chips, table side guac, a glass of mezcalita, with a short rib platter. If you have room try the Churros and one of their unique ice creams! Best new concept in Jupiter!
Fantastic Mexican food, atmosphere and incredible service! Great margaritas, you can taste that they make their own sour mix! The duck empanadas were off the chain:) going back for dinner tonight!!!
THE BEST Mexican dining experience in Jupiter. The drinks are insanely good (Jalapeño Margarita), the food is AMAZING (Beef Brisket Quesadilla) and the tequila menu is impressive. Calaveras has just recently opened and will become a local favorite in Jupiter. I'm going to spread the word about this place, they deserve it!
I am from Montgomery, Al and Calaveras was the place to go according to the locals in Jupiter, so I decided I would give it a try . This place of business is well kept and has a beautiful interior . The servers were excellent, and the food was more than delicious . The prices were affordable also. I give this resturant an A+ in customer satisfaction, and recommend it to anyone . Whether you're alone or with a group, the cantina is the place to go.
Absolutely awesome food, service and decor... My new favorite Mexican restaurant.
Great experience!!! I don't tend to give perfect reviews, and maybe I shouldn't until I've had the desserts at Calaveras, but I can't help myself. It started with Darlene's tremendous service...friendly, knowledgeable, contagious smile...continued through what Karin said was a fantastic margarita...drink service was extremely attentive and timely, by the way...and a perfectly decadent queso fundido with crumbled chorizo. The cheese was fresh and melty-gooey-viscerally fulfilling! A huge plus. From there, we shared the Tres Amigos fajitas...tender steak strips dead-on medium rare, smoky grilled chicken, and classic chorizo sizzling in a bed of peppers, onions, and sweet potatoes bites...the usual toppings (pico de gallo, guacamole, sour cream, etc) were all accounted for, and the flavors and seasonings were spot-on, but their house made hot sauce was a real find. There was just enough smoky chipotle heat balanced with a fruity sweetness and a tanginess that put me in mind of tamarind...could be wrong on that one but the sauce was really fantastic and accented the proteins beautifully without being overpowering. Owner Carlos paid us a visit...very nice, genuine guy...obviously proud of what he and his partner have put together, and justifiably so...he seemed genuinely pleased that Karin and I were so happy with our meal and service. Overall, Calaveras Cantina delivered a memorable dining experience that we will be repeating soon. Can't wait to try the duck empanada!!!
We had one of the BEST meals ever here!!.. The guacamole is made table side and is the THE BEST guacamole that we have ever had... we had the beef, fish and chicken tacos... can't be beat.. i also had the pinto beans.. also my favorite.. I could have just eaten the beans and been just as pleased. Our waitress.. Darlene was AMAZING!! THANK YOU!! We will go back next time we are in town. You will not be disappointed.
