Calypso is a great little restaurant at the north end of the hotel zone. As another review said, it is tucked back in a quiet area off of the main street in the hotel zone across from the Fiesta Americana Grand Coral and near the big grocery store. It is mostly outdoor seating, there are not a lot of tables,... More

We were referred to Calypso's by a gentleman named Victor, who greets tourists outside McDonald's. No, we were not eating at McDonald's and no, Victor is not one of the folks hawking tours and snorkeling trips. We just happened to bump into him while walking back from breakfast. He made a number of recommendations - did not hand us cards... More

We found Calypso after we talked to some people at our resort who had a great experience there. It was a wonderful little restaurant tucked back in a quiet area. The red snapper was the best fish we had in Cancun! Felipe was wonderful and welcoming. He remembered we had stopped by earlier to look at the menu and offered... More

This is a little restaurant, kind of hidden behind the Aloft Hotel. Went for a late lunch, early dinner. The staff was friendly and informative, the food was very tasty and nice priced.

We came here just because it was the first place we came across and we were tired of walking. It was so great! Not only was the food AMAZING (I mean we are talking chips, pico, optional spices, to die for shrimp tacos, and enchilada verde sauce that makes you want to cry tears of joy), but it also seemed...

I went or was suckered into this restaurant based on the great reviews. It was a huge mistake. We went here for dinner on 12/23/2014. Chips were crispy and good. But it came with a big bowl of pico de gallo and a small bowl of habanero in oil. No other red or green salsa. A seafood platter for 2... More

We went to Calypso for a break from our resort. Didn't really eat much, but loved the salsa and the margarita. The highlight of this adventure was Felipe, who remembered my boyfriend from a previous visit. Such a charming fellow!!! If you don't go for any other reason at least stop by to say hi to him...
