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.

Six of us stopped in the Kalypso Island Bar & Grill after a day of sightseeing and were told by the host that we would be seated in 20 minutes. He had apparently forgotten that he had booked another group of six by phone so just as we say a place being cleared the other group arrived and was seated.... More

Busy restaurant and good food. The Kahlua pig nachos were great! Portions were large and tasty! Fish tacos couldn't finish. Suggest sharing one less per number of people on table. Service great!

Close to Hanalei Bay, we stopped there on our way home from the beach. Good menu. Nice quiet Kauai town to hang out in, enjoying a burger and a beer.

Expect the average bar food. Atmosphere is good, place is usually crowded and service is good. It is your Hawaiian hang-out not your gourmet experience, but it's great for the cold... More

We always stop here while on Kauai & this time was no exception. We ate lunch a couple times & each time the place was packed with customers. The food was not spectacular but it was served pretty quickly for the amount of people in the restaurant. The servers are courteous & seem to know all the local people. The... More

After a long day on the beach we wanted something to drink fish to eat. We decided on Kalypso's after looking around at the other restaurants in the area. I ordered the fish tacos and my husband ordered the steak nachos. My tacos were Ok, fish was dry. The steak nachos were good. I also ordered a pina colada, which... More
