Crab Claws!!

We ended up eating a few meals here and were not disappointed at all with any of them. Our favorite thing was the crab claws. We each had an order and a guacamole appetizer. It was perfect! We also had the lobster and shrimp on another visit and that was also terrific. It is a simple outdoor... read more

My husband, family,and friends and acquaintances have been enjoying Calypso's since 2005. I have NEVER had a bad experience or complaint about the food or beverages from anyone. This is a sweet spot-a place that welcomes everyone, and has the best, freshest seafood, for the best prices, in the hotel zone. In addition, the funky ambiance, and supremely welcoming attitude...

Felipe is a wonderful host. He acts like you are friends. This place is a hole in the wall. Nothing fancy here. Looks like a beach hut bar - food place. Food was good ....... ( from what we ordered ) not great , but good.

Food is fair at best. Can get better value for your money at other places. Not sure about how clean the place is. They charge a tip automatically. Don't pay in dollars only use Pesos. I wouldn't go back. Concierge tried to warn us but we didn't listen. Next time will take their advice.

Food was terrible!!! My daughter found hair in her plate and she did not eat her meal. It was way over priced we've had much better food at same price.

Every time we come to Cancun , we make it a point to stop by and get a drink and visit with Felipe. Excellent customer service, affordable Mexican favorites and great drink specials. Location could be a bit tricky to find, as it is in a alley behind the Aloft hotel. I happen to stumble across this place wandering around... More

Calypso was recommended to us by a friend of Felipe. We were told to stop there and try the margaritas and say hi to Felipe. The margaritas were excellent and Felipe was a very accommodating host.

We had this on our list from trip adviser a restaurant to try and our family loved it! The place is small enough to feel like you are part of the family yet diverse enough that everyone could find a dish to try (2 of our family are allergic to sea food).

Tucked away in Hotel Zone, this is a great place for fresh fish and seafood as well as home made Mexican burritos, tacos etc. Locally owned and operated by Franco and Filipe, who will greet you with a huge smile and lots of warmth. Don't forget to order one of f'n Filipe's famous Margaritas!! Very relaxed atmosphere with excellent staff.... More
