Fun atmosphere!

Wonderful food and drinks! Some of the best Mai Tai's! Great happy hour, wait staff fabulous. All of the Nachos are delish! We ate at Kalypso many times in the ten days we were in the area, we did not have one bad meal. Great place to people watch also!

A great place for breakfast in Hanalei. Their omlets are the best. We enjoy an afternoon Mai tai with the Coconut Shrimp appetizer. The open air sports bar atmosphere is a good place to watch your favorite team. Don't miss this gem in beautiful downtown Hanalie.

Happy hour drinks are well priced and they really pour the liquor in. Mai Tai's here were the best I had on the island. I had the Huli Huli chicken and was very nice.

Great place for casual fare. Had breakfast and their macadamia nut french toast was great. Not too sweet, which I liked. Husband had blacked mahi-mahi benedikt for breakfast and loved it. Hanalei taro burger (vegetarian) was very good. Coconut shrimp appetizer was great. Try the Spiked Kalypso Iced Tea......YUMMMMMMM They have specials and happy hours, not sure what the times...

I stopped into Kalypso's, drawn by the open air seating and the lively crowd. It was a bit crowded so we grabbed a couple seats at the bar. After enjoying a cold beer and not being super hungry we ended up splitting an order of Nachos ($13) and another round of beers ($5). Now this can happen anywhere, but the... More

Nice casual place, had meal on the porch outside. Ordered the Seafood Pasta from the dinner menu. Dinner menu starts at 5:30pm, but our server put the order in at 5pm and that was fine. Pasta was amazing with their own sauce. I will go back to Kauai just to have this meal again - that is how good it... More
