Beautiful good food

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.

Absolutely love dining at this family-style Greek restaurant. Saganaki is an all-time favourite and they do it very well! The portions are large and so I recommend sharing if you can't decide. My go-to for Greek! Service is always pleasant and they make you feel at home.

I took my children and grandson for lunch and while I can in no way complain about the food or service, I really felt this place could be so much more. The service was fantastic and the professionalism of the staff and there knowledge of the menu was great. The food was good, but not OMG, I need to tell... More

We were tired and couldn't make up our minds on dinner, so we stopped here on the way home, having driven past it hundreds of times with vague promises to "check it out some time". What a great choice. We got there just after five, and there were plenty of tables (it was starting to fill up pretty well for... More

We took our Mother to Calypso's Taverna at noon on a Sunday for a small celebration of her birthday. She is elderly and somewhat frail and prefers quiet restaurants with calm, attentive service. They are kind to her here and treat her very respectfully. She gets bland food where she lives; but, she still has an appetite for well-seasoned food... More
