I had not been back in awhile but tried the new location on Charlotte Ave with a new friend and it was as good as ever! I find all their salads good and healthy and their chicken is good anyway prepared.

good review because my husband loved his bar-b-cued chicken and bean salad-the rice meh....so-so. I asked the waiter about the tuna salad. Answer "yeah...I don't know, it's not made here" not such a good answer. I had a salad that MUST have had and entire cup of canned, squishy mandarin oranges on it. Really? the romaine was crisp and fresh... More

I went to Calypso Café to try what other seem to enjoy so much. Hearing so many good thing I wanted to try for myself. My disappointment began when we were told that we couldn't have a gallon of their fruit tea at the table, it was only for to go orders. Which is bull. If your worried about anyone... More

Thanks to Trip Advisor, I discovered Calypso for Lunch. They have a good variety for lunch (Rotisserie Chicken with three styles <BBQ, Curry, and Jerk-Hot>, Sandwiches, 5 salads, Nachos, etc with plenty sides). I had 1/2 Chicken Curry-Flavored, with the Orzo/Basil Salad and Sweet Potatoes topped with Coconut. Fruit Tea seems to be a Nashville standard and Calypso did not... More

We made it at 8:55pm to pick up food before going to the hotel. This is my all time favorite place to eat period. Meal for 4 + 1 salad for me was $30 with lots left over.

I was so pleased to find a restaurant that many of their main dishes are healthy for you. My wife and I were very pleased with this place.

We were having difficulty figuring out where to eat lunch, and happened upon this restaurant. The meals, including drinks were about $10 a person. I got the black bean salad, which was pretty good… Although I think I would have asked for the barbecue white chicken the next time. That my husband was blown away by the meal that he... More

We've lived in Nashville for half of our lives and Calypso is one of our favorite restaurants. We took family there yesterday and they didn't disappoint!! If you like dessert, order the Calypso Bar. It is their signature dessert!! For the first time, the waiter offered to warm it and add whipped cream.Our guests LOVED it. If you are too... More
