Visited in march on a Saturday night as a large group, we had the banquet, great value for money and loads of choice, huge portions (maybe too huge) - everybody found something that they enjoyed, no complaints which is unusual with a group of around 15 plus people, nice setting next to the canal can imagine it would be lovely...

Just visited Calypso for the first time with my husband and daughter. Really enjoyed the food and a very different style to all other restaurants in the area. The food was fresh and very tasty even the kids menu choice which is normally something out of the freezer but this was fresh and tasted as good as what we chose... More

This is a canalside Caribbean bar/restaurant with a menu that is authentic in both content and flavour. Dave, the owner and manager, is also head chef, but has an excellent support staff.

By the end I was so full I could not manage dessert. It was delicious from first to last bite. Food was good value. Bar prices average.... More

Just happened to come across Calypso while in Blackburn, and having read the reviews decided to book a table that night. The service and food are both excellent - the service was always attentive without being in your face. We ordered the platter for 2 to get a feel for the food and it was honestly both huge and delicious... More
