I booked a table for three a couple of days in advance. The friendly welcome at the time of booking by phone was repeated during our visit by all of the staff. We've limited experience of carribean cuisine but two us chose the banquet, and all of us enjoyed our meals, especially the jerk chicken, fish, and mutton curry. The... More

A group of us went to Calypso for a bit of a change from Chineese and Indian. The location is alongside the Leeds Liverpool canal which seemed nice but the evening was warm and the open doors invited a swarm of bitting insects. As a party we were served a "buffet" meal where a selection of West Indian food was... More

First visit and won't bother trying a second. Read previous reviews and also checked out website and thought this would be a fun venue for a Saturday evening meal out. Nope.... the place was almost empty, the only entertainment was a couple who were well inebriated, and am not sure if we were bitten by mozzies from the canal or... More

Been to this restaurant 3 times now - once as a group at the weekend and the other two times in a couple during the week. I LOVE this place. The food and service is great! Friendly and accommodating staff (who put the hammock out especially for me), tasty food and great cocktails. I am not a lover of really... More

I have lived in blackburn my whole life and cannot believe only a few weeks ago was the first time I have been there. The staff were really helpful and welcoming when we arrived. There is no need to book most of the time as there is plenty of room. The food was really great. Loads of it and some... More

I have just arrived home from my first visit to calypso and I am already arranging my next one. The best meal I have eaten in the Blackburn area with extremely friendly staff. My friend and I arrived just as they were starting service so we were the only customers eating but the staff alone made a great atmosphere. I... More

Returned to Calypso for a light snack, Saw several people having the Combo lunch which looked amazing so we had that. It tasted as good as it looked. Authentic Caribbean cuisine served it the sun. If you closed your eyes you could imagine being in Jamaica ( apart from the geese n ducks). After two and half hours we had... More
