We always eat seafood dishes, and large servings encourage sharing. Appetizers and desserts never disappoint. We'll be back in a few days, probably more than once.

This distinctive eatery has been a Pompano Beach gem for three decades. The mussels in Bajan broth are always a excellent starter. Do not be deterred by the local...off the beaten path but worth the stop.

Food is always fresh and service is always great. We dine here regularly and have never had a bad meal. Our only complaint is they are only open monday-friday!!

We discovered this restaurant 8 years ago when we began regularly visiting South Florida. An unassuming place a few miles away from the ocean in Pompano Beach in a strip mall, it is truly an undiscovered gem. Open only M-F and closed the entire month of September, you have to plan ahead to come here. Having said that, it is... More

I drove from my hotel in Ft. Lauderdale to this restaurant in Pompano Beach with high expectations based on Tripadvisor reviews. The restaurant is in a small strip mall setting and a bit hard to see from the road. Although it is not on a beach, it had a nice beachy feel and ambiance. The waitress was prompt and courteou...

We have been in the neighborhood for 14 years and finally stepped into Calypsos. Everyone always told us how good the food was. They were right. The food was really good. Glad we finally stopped in and we will be back. The stamp and go cod fritters were excellent. The shrimp stuffed with bacon and stuffing was very good. The... More

This was the third year we have tried to try Calypso. The first 2 years the restaurant was closed for vacation and this year we stopped by on Saturday and they had a "gone fishin" sign on the door. We later found out that they were closed on SAT. And Sun., so we returned on Monday and ordered the blackened... More

It was so refreshing to be able to get in touch with food from the islands, surprisingly in all places Pompano. The food was very fresh and delicious. My family and I had shrimp, fish, chicken wings, sides of black beans, pigeon peas and rice, and fries for the kids. The dressing on the salads were unbelievable. I cannot wait... More
