He has a great new restaurant in Orient Village, Le Telegraphe. We had a lovely meal there in October, 2019. As far as Calmos, not rebuilt as of yet.

I like to close my eyes and think about sitting at Calmos having a beverage, baked cheese, ribs and great music.

SXMScubaman do you know when the conversation was? I searched but didn't find anything recent. When we were on island in January 2020, there was talk that they were going to rebuild Calmos in Grand Case but then Covid hit and I'm sure everything got put on hold. We've always stayed in Grand Case for the 25+ trips down since 2002 and have had great times at Calmos. I really hope they rebuild there again. Great times!

Not sure. It was a conversation included in another recent thread on a trip report of someone still on island.

Doc - you will love Le Telegraphe - one of our new favorites... the view is not hte same as Calmos, but the food is very good. We're passing on this Oct.,but are planning May - maybe we'll see you then...

When we were there in January, Le Telegraghe had just recently opened in Orient. However, I don't thing anything can replace Calmos in Grand Case. So many great times there. Just hoping they come back.

I never thought the food at Calmos was that outstanding, but the setting, particularly at sunset, was impossible to beat..

We loved Calmos.
Alex treated us like long lost friends. We were invited behind the bar for pictures. The atmosphere, the service, the location, the family Sunday gatherings, and in our opinion the grilled shrimp and a bottle of wine was a much needed part of every vacation,
We had so many good times there.
We will support Alex in any establishment and look forward to dining there.
PNP, we will see you in May.
We have a need to be back to our favorite island and we hope to see our friends who live there and friends from away we have met there.
carib cheers,
doctorj

I agree. Great view but just typical beach food.

Add us to the favorable reviews of Le Telegraphe. We had dinner and a long lunch there with friends - both were excellent. When we talked with Alex in Dec., he said that he had planned to reopen Calmo's this month. Of course the virus could have delayed those plans.


I'm going where the weather suits my clothes.

We were told, by a local, that Calmos was open. They were mistaken. We loved Calmos for the view and the vibe. Food was what I would call "bar food". We ate once at Le Telegraphe. Absolutely, better food than Calmos!

Sometimes locals don't know anything. Just like home when there is construction going on next door to where they work and the employee just shrugs shoulder and gives you a blank look when you ask what's going in.

FF--Perhaps Calmos will reopen, once Covid is under control and the tourists return, with food like at Le Telegraphe. Now, THAT would be a treat!

I always enjoyed anchoring in Grand Case and of course Calmos was one of my favorite haunts for a happy drink. Here's to some better times in the past
