Love the food, the service, the atmosphere...in short, EVERYTHING. Serving sizes are large; food is great - fresh seafood, Cuban specialties as well as Caribbean specialties.

I had heard so many good things about Calypso but honestly, I was quite disappointed. My fish was not the freshest. The atmosphere was ok. Don't think I would go back next time I am in the area.

We went to Calypso Restaurant based on the TA reviews and was looking forward to the experience as it was the last night of our vacation. To be honest not all that impressed. It looks like a strip mall diner from the outside but when we got in they have a very nice dining room. The place was packed and... More

Although it's in a small, unimpressive strip mall,when you walk thru the door you walk into a fun, casual and colorful little restaurant! Waitstaff are friendly & talkative, food is yummy. I tend to get the shrimp cutter sandwich. Wide variety of seafood and caribbean dishes and be sure to check out the specials board. My late husband and I... More

Wonderful restaurant with casual dining with fresh, fresh fish, spicy jerk chicken or fish, and something for everyone. The service was fast and friendly, with our intuitive waitress suggesting a corn coating instead of flour on plantains for somebody who is gluten intolerant. You can have barbecue flavors or curry or just grilled.. The grouper sandwich was the best i... More

Went with a group of 9 for a casual and quick lunch. Ordered the peel shrimp which had incredible Cajun spices. The shrimp were so fresh! We also ordered oysters which were chilled to perfection and nice and big. The conch fritters were a little on the oily side since they are deep fried and tasted like fried food, but... More

We went on a Wednesday night and we're told it was a 20' wait and is was so worth it! First, the manager (perhaps the owner) serves as a maître d' and is constantly walking around, talking with customers and ensuring things move smoothly. The staff work very well together and despite the face that it was full, the table... More

The best meal in Florida so far. Fresh seafood cooked to perfection. Homemade desserts that could not be put down until the last bite.
