“Authentic, delicious Greek food in a friendly taverna”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

We ate at Calypso's on the recommendation of a nearby B&B (Tuxedo House). We were greeted warmly by the owners and enjoyed an ouzo before the meal.

All the dishes we ordered were reasonably priced and delicious - we would particularly recommend the starter platter to share between two which gives a variety of dishes, and Calypso produced the first Greek salad we had in Canada that tasted like the food we are used to in Greece. The main courses - a seafood lasagna, chicken souvlaki and lamb cutlets - were all delicious, as were the desserts. The Greek wine was also of high quality.

We highly recommend this restaurant to anyone travelling to Calgary

“Arrive early or be disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

My wife and I read the glowing reports about this restaurant...we love Greek food! But we arrived at 7:30 PM on A Thursday and the special was gone so we were left with something else to order...the lamb we both had was only ok. The service was pleasant, a bit slow. Atmosphere lacks.

“Greek food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

We split an order of spare ribs. They were quite tasty and tender. We had plenty for both of us. Be prepared to eat.
