We were visiting the area and checked trip advisor for restaurants. This had great feedback so decided to try. We were early before serving started but they were accommodating and offered to open for us. We ordered the set meal for two costing £30. It was delicious and there was plenty. Nice atmosphere even with only with a few customers.... More

As new neighbours to calypso restaurant, we decided to check out what was on offer at this canalside restaurant. We chose the red snapper which was served with a lovely fresh salad and a sprinkle of coriander and dressing ..quite different to the usual restaurants we visit and must say, one of the best meals we have had in a...

Great tasting food, lovely welcoming staff. The set out of the place is perfect with a Jamaican Bob Marley theme. I just think there should be more variety on the chicken dishes and no cinnamon put in the sweet potatoes as they are already sweet tasting enough. Enjoyed the night, will be going again soon.

I have visited this restaurant twice in 1 week, why? because there are no longer any restaurants in the Blackburn area where you can sit have a lovely meal then receive entertainment. The food was excellent the staff was courteous the restaurant was very clean and inviting well done Calypso and thank you Dave Wilson for your hospitality. :)
