While staying at the Marriott I was in a bite of a rush every morning and I didn’t have time to sit-down and enjoy breakfast in the restaurant, so I bought food from the café every morning. Let me tell you these people are in no rush at all and if you don’t pay attention they will give your sandwich... More

My team and I enjoyed breakfast here several times during our stay. The made-to-order omelets are great!. They also have breads, muffins, eggs, bacon, fruit, pancakes and the usual breakfast items. The wait staff is attentive and offers coffee and juice; the rest is serve yourself.

Cafe Calypso is located inside the Marriott on St. Kitts and offers counter-service pastries, ice cream, sandwiches, beverages and coffee in a coffee shop atmosphere. They also offer an impressive dinner menu, which we ordered from Tuesday evening after attempting to eat in the dine-in portion of the restaurant (closed for dinner). My husband ordered the Caribbean Cobb with jerk... More

Unfortunately, we had a bad experience in this restaurant hence we knew a mediocre service. The waiting food was very long, around 1 hour to be served !! It was for the lunch, and a lot of people was in the same case than us :-( It's very too bad, because the restaurant is nice...

I loved the turkey bacon wrap from the cafe. We also enjoyed a buffet style dinner at the Calypso restaurant. It was local fair. We enjoyed it. The staff was very attentive.

CALYPSO RESTAURANT (*****): This was our go-to restaurant for lunch. Prices ranged from $13-$25. Decent ½ rack of baby-back ribs with incredible vanilla-rum sauce, good BBQ pork sandwiches, fish tacos, lobster mac-n-cheese, roasted chicken, conch chowder, home made spicy chips – all good. Lunch (sometimes our main meal) ran $80 for four. This sit-down restaurant is only open for breakfast... More

Tried to eat here the first day we visited but the restaurant is only open 11-2. I assume you can get food in the cafe part but the service was not very helpful so we left. Came back another day to eat. Service was not that great. The ice in the glass melted before they even brought us our drinks... More

Piss poor service--one of only 10 customers in the restaurant for the breakfast buffet and it took 15 minutes to get a glass of water.
