Highlight of my business trip

I had never been to Calypso, but it came recommended. I was looking for a local place, no chain and Calypso was what I had hoped for. Calypso is in a non-descript, somewhat run down mini complex, which in my mind adds to the allure. Atmosphere was casual and friendly. It was a Wednesday night... read more

The seafood was very fresh and delicious. Prices were $22-$30 per entree which included 2 sides and very fresh salad. I would definitely recommend this restaurant, you will not be disappointed.

This place is truly a hidden gem in Pompano! Excellent food, quiet quaint restaurant with an island atmosphere. Excellent Oysters Rockefeller! I could eat four trays of them instead of an entre. Homemade soups are very tastey, full of veggies and seafood! Worth a trip there!

I have eaten here many times over the years. Seafood is always fresh. Servers are very friendly an accommodating. I wish they were opened on the weekends.

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
