Great Food and Even better atmosphere!

We had a great time at Calypso's. The food was excellent and the owner was a nice as could be. We all ordered drinks before dinner and he brought us shots of tequila on the house, which was good enough we had to talk him into selling us a bottle! Food was quickly served and mixed drinks were large... read more

Enjoyed their selection of Mexican samplers and had a huge margarita. The food was delicious and the atmosphere very vibrant. Danced with the staff. What a great e ending.

Slow service with average food. Advertised as authentic Mexican but the cuisine and decor felt very American. Portion sizes were big but dishes were bland.

It's one of the best restaurants in Cancun. Food is delicious and the environment is great. Best MICHELADA in the city, I swear. I recommend this restaurant, give it a go!

Our first visit was so good we went back twice more! Lots of good food at reasonable prices. Best grilled octopus I ever had. Tortilla chips and dips and tequila after our meal were always included at no extra charge. Located in a quiet courtyard off the main drag.

Ventured out of our normal eating area to Calypso. Thought it might be hard to find but the bus stops at Fiesta Americana walked across the street and it was right there.

We visited Calypso on 2 separate evening and enjoyed the food, beer and the service. Not the cheapest meal but we felt it was worth the money and had a nice relaxed atmosphere.

The food was really good, I felt it was fairly expensive for what you got. We got fajitas, shrimp, and Carne. The table cloths were ponchos that they just shook off in between costumers and they were covered in stains.

Great Staff and coldest beer in town. Want a great meal and no hassles go to Calypso's. Ask for Filepe when you are there and ask him to show you his special apron.
