When we looked up some places to eat. Kalypso was described as having live band entertainment and having areas to dance. We thought it would be a fun place to unwind. In reality they had a 2 man band which were pretty good, but they would play a song maybe 2 and then kept leaving then coming back again which... More

We went here for a family celebration and will probably be returning when we go back to Kauai. The food was great and so was the service.

My family (14 of us) enjoyed Kalypso Island Bar & Grill! The food was Delicious, service was GREAT, prices were reasonable - like most of the resturants if you have 6 or more in your party they will automatically take the 18-19% for the tip! Still very much worth it! Would highly recommend this place!!

We just had a great dinner at Kalypso's. I had the poke bowl appetizer for my dinner and it was great! Calamari was wonderful and so was the seafood pasta. Something for everyone!

this place has a nice beach vibe. The food was really good and not too spend. Would recommend reservations as it is rather small inside
