Good Sunday breakfast place

Sunday breakfast with family was very good. Place was very busy, so wait time was about 30 minutes. Servings are quite generous. Parking is available at the marketplace or across the street. They have a small area set up for families with children.

Nothing special about this place. Service was slow - fish taco's iffy. There's so many fantastic places to eat in Kauai - I wouldn't bother to stop in here.

This was our first meal in Kauai and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Good open air atmosphere. The Kauai piña coladas and ahi poke & calamari lettuce wraps were very tasty. Glad we went!

We LOVE this little town, and just decided to stop here for dinner, great choice. Hannalei worth the drive but a long drive back at night if you don't stay on the north side. Great food, friendly service, seems like more of a locals bar but families also eating here, seemed to be a locals favorite. We loved it. Casual,... More

We had a very good lunch here. The staff were friendly and attentive but not in a way to make you feel rushed by any means. Their special of the day was outstanding and a meal I would definitely have again. Will return to this restaurant again when we go back for another visit to the Island.

We couldn't decide where to go for dinner, so just stopped at Kalypso. We were not expecting it to be as good as it was. My husband had the mussels and said they may have been the best he's ever had. The waitress was very efficient and pleasant. We'd definitely return.

Was recommended by someone where we were staying and was awesome all around. The food was awesome . The calamari was the best I have ever tasted! The server was what you expect when you go out to eat and really enjoyed this island gem. Wish we would have found it sooner!
