Came in during our surface interval between morning and night dives at a nearby dive shop. The friendly and calm welcome was a nice change from the other vendors constantly shouting for business. We were helped along with our broken Spanish and then allowed to finish our order in English. Really enjoyed the tacos con arrichera (nicely marinated, sliced beef).... More

During happy hour we took two drinks, but we paid for both them.. they do not accept credit card. They exchange usd to pessos 1:16. There are much better places around than this. Food was not good :(.

Love this place. I could not wait for my next Cancun visit to stop and see Felipe and get some of his fabulous ceviche. The service is great, prices are reasonable and the food is yummy. If you want authentic Mexican food, this is the place!

Wonderful food! Reasonably priced. Small outdoor café tucked away across from huge Selecto supermarket. Owner Felipe is a delight. We go to Calypso's every time we are In Cancun.

We have been to Cancun 5 times and always visit Felipe here when we come. This guy is great and really serves good food and drinks. We love the grilled shrimp and Lobster here and the price is very fair. You'll be glad you stopped in. Thanks Loco Felipe !

We visited Calypsos on recommendation. The friendly atmosphere is a winner, and. Filipe will greet you and make sure you enjoy your meal. Lots of locals in there as well. This is an older style place, a bit more rustic, but very personalised. The Fishermans basket for 2 is nice but not super cheap.

Just returned to Cancun. We had to have lunch at Calypso with our great host Felipe. The cerviche was excellent as was the guacamole and the fish tacos. Great prices, genial host, excellent food quality and relaxed atmosphere: what more could you want for lunch or dinner in Cancun? Totally recommend.
