Excellent as always!

Very rarely indeed do I a) visit restaurants on a regular basis or b) regularly write reviews for the same restaurant, but, as time passes between visits I think it`s only fair to give credit where it`s due.

Fantastic, well presented food bursting with flavour. A real taste sensation. It was great to meet a chef so passionate about his food. Friendly and attentive staff in a relaxed environment overlooking the wharf. Having secure overnight moorings outside it's an excellent place to visit if you're a boater. Highly recommended.

My partner and I regularly eat here on Saturday lunchtime and we are always delighted with the quality, quantity and presentation of the food. I have tried most of the specials from the lunchtime menu but usually revert to my favourite, the chicken and beef kebabs with barbeque sauce. 4 skewered kebabs with tender, juicy chicken and beef, cherry tomatoes,...

We are always delighted with the great food and friendly and welcoming staff at Calypso. The platter for two is excellent, especially if you are visiting for the first time as you can try a little bit of all sorts of dishes. Leave room for dessert if you can as there are some real treats and the cocktails are fun... More

Had the Caribbean platter for two people and to be honest we could not eat it all but we had a damn good try!! In fact the food was that good we even took a doggy bag for later. A variety of chicken, jerk, bbq and crispy, lamb kebabs, rice and peas, curry sauce and dumplings was nothing short of... More

The food arrived without a long wait and was very tasty with a lovely bit of spice to each dish. It is nice to... More

Visited for lunch with my mum. From the moment we walked in we were made to feel welcome & also spoke to the owner who was very friendly. I had the curried mutton which was delicious & mum had the red snapper which she really enjoyed. Both were generous portions served with a smile! After dining we sat outside &... More
