A great family run restaurant for you family's happy reunion

We always feel welcome here and end up ordering too much. Food is so good and fresh that will be engraved forever in your taste memory. Location is good and they have some parking available always. Excellent experience or come back for celebrations or just plain lunch.

We often eat here when we want a home cooked meal. The staff is so friendly as we are becoming regulars. The salads are very fresh and the plates are plentiful.

Most of my reviews center around dismal kid run coffee joints and, roadside diner dives, because there's not much else to choose from, unless you want to endlessly experiment, with high priced poorly run outfits. Might as well be prepared for disappointment and pay appropriately. Calypso's Greek Taverna, on Center Street in Calgary Alberta Canada is one memorable exception. These... More

I went to this restaurant with a group of friends, and loved the food! I had the roasted lamb, with melted in my mouth, it was so tender. I also tried the ouzo gelato, and it was fantastic! The reviews from my friends were also very positive - we will definitely come back!

I have been to Greece and can confirm that the food they serve here in Calgary is as beautiful as that in Greece itself. The flavours are beautiful and the ingredients are delicious

My wife, her sister and her husband and I enjoyed a leisurely lunch at this restaurant. I had the meatballs with rice and vegetables. My wife had the kleftiko and the others had the special fish which was red snapper. We all enjoyed our meals. Good selection of wines by the glass at sensible prices. Recommended.

I have been to Calypso's quite a few times and highly recommend this quality restaurant! The staff are truly professional, interesting and classy people. The food is exquisite and I have never had any complaints or concerns with freshness or quality. I love this part of town for the best Italian and Greeko restaurants in the city. Worth the stop...

You've been in restaurant where you have to yell across the table to talk with your friends. Not so here. Quiet room great for catching up with friends and family. The service was very good, no rush so again time to visit. But this is a restaurant so you want to know about the food. It was also very good.... More

We just happened to have been invited by friends to Calypso for Greek Night. Looking forward to good greek food, which is hard to come by once you've had the real thing overlooking the Agean, we left Sat night smiling and most satisfied. This Greek night happens only once a year and we are going to mark next year on... More

It was the first restaurant I went to after I moved to Calgary over two and a half years ago.....and I am returning on a regular basis. The food is always good, dinner portions are huge, but lunch portions are reasonable (I can manage to finish), the service is good as well. Overall my favorite restaurant in town.
