The selection of food was great and all of the food tasted great. As a table we got a platter of different foods and everything had great flavor and was fresh. The meats were well prepared and the 2 person meal was sufficient to feed three of us. One of the members in our party had a gluten allergy and... More

My Wife and I were looking to change things up a bit as far as going out for food. She suggested we try Greek food. I have to admit that at first I was a bit concerned because I haven't had Greek food too often before. So, I looked up some places on Tripadvisor and read some reviews. This place... More

I've been to Calypso's numerous times because they have terrific food and went again recently. As always, great food and an enjoyable evening but.... I purposefully saved half my meal to take home and when I asked the server to wrap it up for me he said no problem. He must have been on autopilot because he came back to... More

We return often to Calypso's simply because the service is always amazing and the food is always some of the best we can get in Calgary. We took a large party of friends to their 'Greek Night' the end of May. A special item on the menu was the Greek ribs. Peter, if that is not a normal fixture on... More

I cannot believe that I have never been here before. Great location, easy to get to with parking right outside the door. Very nice on the inside (way better than you would imagine from the outside). We had the saganaki and Greek ribs as appetizers and each ordered moussaka as our main. All of which were very good, the saganaki... More

Our family of three just retuned from a pleasant dinner at Calypso. The saganaki (flaming cheese) was good but not the best we'd ever had. We decided to shar the combination platter for two amongst the three of us. It was a huge helping of assorted dishes and we came home with lots of leftovers . The moussaka and lamb... More

We've been dining here almost a year now, and the food continues to get better and better each time. It's gone from AMAZING to OMG AWESOME! I don't know any other way to explain it. If you want entertainment, Saturday nights are great as they have a live belly dancer. Now and then you hear OPA! yelled as a dish... More

A modern and casual style restaurant that does not really have the Greek ambiance. But Greek food that excells and I know Greek food . We had a shrimp appetizer with ouzo sauce, which was delicious and and roasted lamb which was very tasty. The portions were generous and the service excellent; however it was a quiet week day evening.... More
