While in Coral Springs for meetings the guys suggested we go to a place called Calypso's in Pompano Beach. Had no idea what to expect but had some anticipation that it was going to be something different and boy was my intuition right. My first experience with what I guess was Jamaican cuisine. We stared out with BBQ Shrimp. Next... More

I love this place. I wish it was closer to my home in Delray as I would be a weekly customer. Everything is so delicious from the fresh fish to the desserts. Best bread pudding in the world. The ROLO cheese cake when available is also divine. My favorite appetizer is the stuffed seafood mushrooms.

Went to dinner here with my husband on Friday night. Celiac is not a problem here as the wait staff and owner are well aware of gluten problem. Had their fresh fish of the day with a side of dirty rice and baked potato which was fresh and pretty darn tasty. Price wise it was about $25 for this entree... More

Authentic Caribbean food in a relaxed atomoshphere delicious seafood super friendly staff location isn't great it's a small restaurant at the end of a plaza with a noisy bar and one end a liquer store in the middle and calypso at the end but if u really want to taste the islands this local institution is the real deal

Love this place. The atmosphere is nothing spectacular, but the seafood is always good and fresh! If you want an entree that's less expensive but very good then order the Calypso cutter. I also recommend the fried plantains. An order will feed at least two people. The staff is very friendly and attentive.

I assumed from the photo this place had to either be on or near the beach. It was actually a strip mall nowhere close to the beach. Their food made up for it though. I had the special of the day and it was amazing. Husband and daughter loved theirs too. Friendly place and kid friendly too.

I had some of the most wonderful fresh seafood in this place! You have to try the grillled conch, the ginger dressing on the salad is so good you just want to turn it up and drink it! The fish dip is very very tasty as well! Didn't taste anything I didn't love!

Excellent meal tonight. The Hog Fish CARRIBEAN style with mango salsa was incredible. The stuffed shrimp is excellent and the cod fish fritters, stamp and go were fresh as ever. Great meal. My husband loves this place he can't wait to come back. Our waitress Jennifer was great. We will be back

My entire family loves this place. Their food is fresh and delicious. We love the crab stuffed mushrooms, crab stuffed dolphin, conch fritters, whole fried yellow tail snapper, conch salad, blackened dolphin, clam chowder, just to name a few. They even have ginger beer! I read the reviews and yes this place is not cheap but neither is the quality... More

The Calypso Restaurant in Pompano Beach represents the best food of the Bahamas right here in the USA. Nothing pretentious about the place, just good food featuring fresh fish and Caribbean favorites prepared perfectly at reasonable prices.
