The strength of this place is it's open air feel and patio. Good food and cold beer, but a tad bit expensive for what you get.

We have been to Kalypso three times and always enjoy it. Service is good, the food is great and prices as reasonable as anywhere! Love it!

Drove to the North Shore to dine at Postcards, but they didn't open for an hour yet. Kalypso seemed to be hopping so I bopped on in. the appetizer of coconut shrimp and a bit of their seafood chowder was more than enough dinner for this foodie. Excellent sauce for the shrimp even if a bit more spicy than my... More

Found it on a drive by and were drawn in by the music. Food was typical pub grub with an island flair. I had a crab quesadilla and it was delicious . Nice atmosphere, friendly staff, cold beer and decent food.

Loved the place, the food is good in general. But I loved the tuna with Asian sauce specials. I thought I'd have problems coming here with two babies, but I was pleasantly surprised that it was pretty kids friendly.

Good lunch spot! I had the fish tacos, very good. My husband had the spicy BBQ burger and waffle fries, which was also a great choice.

We went into Kalypso for drinks and a snack. We have no complaints about the drinks, the Mai Tai was excellent. We did however, order a happy hour item which included fried artichoke hears, calamari, and coconut shrimp. It was BAD. Super greasy! I know it is fried food, but it was bad fried food. Other items coming out of... More

We tried Kalypso on our last trip to Kauai and were disappointed but we thought we'd try it again this trip giving it the benefit of the doubt. I enjoy Koloa rum and was told by the bartender at Dolphin that they carried it so we stopped by after the beach for a Mai Tai. It was clearly not a... More

We were looking for a casual, open air local place and "This is it!" The serving staff is friendly and service conscious. We have had Brittany twice and enjoyed her as our waitress, very much! They have a full bar with reasonable prices and a good beach fare type of menu (burgers, fish, salads tapas, etc.).
