We were a group of 8, all running in Around The Bay, 30k road race. We had our pre race meal here. Delicious! I was really sorry I couldn't have a glass of wine with dinner because that would have made it perfect!

This is one of our must go to places in the Hamilton area. The title says it all. We have been here many times and we will still go there as often as possible.

Excellent service, equisite tasting food, beautiful ambience, fair prices and free parking. By far, this is Hamilton's best fine dining restaurant. Thank you Lo Presti's at Maxwell's staff for making our grandparents 60th anniversary a memorable experience.

What is considered to be one of the most busiest nights of the year definitely did not influence their standard of food and service. Our meals were spectacular as was the atmosphere. Kalipso is a gem... More

Beautiful, elegant décor yet the atmosphere is not stuffy or overly formal. The owner and staff are warm and inviting make the dining experience very special. This restaurant ticks all the boxes from business dinner to family friendly to romantic dining. The prices are very reasonable and LOVE the fact they have an extensive list of wines for $32. The...
