A friend of the lady running the B&B we stayed at recommended Kalypso, so we gave it a try. Wow! Big meals, quality fresh food and great service. The best seafood burrito and fresh fish taco we've ever had. The seafood flavour is so fresh and the chefs really respect the freshness by not overloading it with competing flavours. We... More

We had an early lunch and as the food was pretty good, the wait was a bit slow. Great location and if you can sit on the balcony, it's very nice. The bar is nice too if you want to catch some sporting event. Aloha

This was the first place we ate at on the island. For the most important meal of the day, we were impressed! I had the Mac-nut banana fosters pancakes and my husband had steak and eggs. We were both stuffed silly when we left that place. The coffee was delicious and strong that morning and the mimosas were refreshing. Absolutely... More

We stopped in for a late lunch. We were a party of 8 but they had no problem setting up a table for us. Our waitress had another large party that was just sat - but she gave us great service! We ordered the Kahlua pork sandwich, fish taco's, burgers, chicken sandwiches and it was all delicious! My fav was... More

While visiting Hanalei we decided upon this location for a late lunch and we will always return here, for their food and service is very consistently good. Our server was Krystina who was such a pleasure to chat with. Even though she was quite busy Krystina had time to answer our questions about local attractions. We found their food to... More

After a nice day of hitting the beach and wandering about Hanalei, we decided to stop into Kalypso. There was a very short wait and luntil we got a table with on an open side of theach place. It was very stuffy inside and not very comfortable to be in there. In fact we were ready to leave when the... More

We enjoyed some Saturday morning football with Bloody Mary's in the shadow of Bali Hai! The food was fine, nothing to write home about but good with a fair price. Our server, Jessica, was very good and very busy. There was plenty of demand for tables but we certainly were not rushed. It was the consensus of our group of... More

Stopped by for lunch at the Kalypso and were pleased with the great service we received, the friendly staff and the generous portions. The open air venue was very pleasant.
