Calypso's over the years has become one of our favorite restaurant's in Cancun. We keep coming back year after year and multiple times each trip. If we want good inexpensive seafood this is the place we go to. The fish is always fresh and so good! One of our favorite dishes is the snapper fish with garlic with the shrimp... More

Agreed with other reviewers that the bar may have been set a little too high. Restaurant is good choice amongst others in the area, but nothing special. Lobster + Fish combination was undoubtedly a good value at USD 21, however. Salsa was fresh, but the chips were not. Fish was also good, if a little too garlicky for my taste.... More

We read the reviews of this restaurant with my fiancee and got convinced that this should be good sea food restaurant. When we got there we were suspicious and when we left we were disappointed. The place was not clean, plastic plates and cups, it took time to get our order in because waitress was busy doing something else. We... More

We found this place because of TripAdvisor. Thank you to those who took the time to write reviews, we were not disappointed. Calypso is a small restaurant in the party zone. It was a tiny bit hard to find because it's tucked in a small courtyard in-between the two major streets. The food was excellent and the staff friendly. We... More

Super friendly host and service, and the seabass was easily one of the best seafood dishes I've ever had. Fantastic music too.

Great food. Try the tortilla soup or add it to your order - the broth was very different and delicious!! Reasonable prices.

The owner Felipe makes your visit a special one. Had a pleasure visiting in January right after New Years holidays. We had an app, two/three drinks, and two fried fish - $80 total, a little over priced but it was good. Restaurant is located few steps away from the strip, just follow the signs - nice and quiet outside seating... More

Decided to come to this restaurant based on the positive reviews on the site. The location is a bit difficult to find by car if you are unfamiliar with the hotel zone. It is a warm and inviting restaurant so we were looking forward to a simple and straight forward Mexican meal. We ordered the guacamole, and two margaritas to... More
