Me and my family went for my 70th Birthday celebration and were not disappointed. We asked for a buffet and not having been there before didn't know what to expect. The food was piping hot, lots of variety and every single dish we had was delicious. I notice from another posted review that a customer mentioned that the curry (which... More

First time visiting Calypso and I wasn't disappointed. The cocktails are lovely as was the food, of which I had the assortment of chicken wings and then the fried chicken which was seasoned with jamaican spice. (I really like chicken) The prices are very reasonable and I'm sure I'll be visiting here again in the future!

We've eaten here many times and been delighted but on our last visit the bill was wrong and we were overcharged by around £30. This was dealt with so badly that unfortunately we wont be going back, which is a shame. You get the measure of customer service when a problem arises, in this instance it was non existant.

I've been here a couple of times with my partner, we opted for the platter for 2. It was the Caribbean on a plate, and a very big plate at that! Everything, chicken, fish, prawns, patties, corn on cob, coleslaw and much more more! It was absolutely delicious! The staff were very attentive and explained what the dishes were to... More

Decided to try Calypso after getting fed up on the usual chain food restaurants by the cinema. On arrival I was slightly unsure what to expect as the decor was a little worn and in need of updating. The staff however were all lovely and friendly and a quick look at the menu made me feel better. We ordered the... More

Went on work Christmas do and really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Service is very good and there was more food than we could eat. Only downside was a photographer who kept taking photos which was a bit uncomfortable.
