I had lunch with a freind here and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had the Kleftiko wrap lunch special, which had the most tender lamb you could ever imagine. The owners Popi and Peter always make you feel welcome. TRhe atmosphere is "cozy" and all of their dishes are absolutely delicious, and well priced. Not usually too busy at lunch, handy... More

This restaurant was one of a bunch recommended to us by the owner of the B&B we stayed at. We found the staff to be terrific - very friendly and jovial. But the food - it was wonderful! We shared an order of hummus and pita to start - delicious! My husband had the seafood special and I had the... More

My wife and I visited Calypso for dinner on a Friday night in February. We've been looking for a new regular Greek restaurant since Mykonos closed some time ago. When we arrived the restaurant was full and looked like a great place for locals to go for a quick dinner. We didn't have to wait for a table. For our... More

We were invited there, I liked the atmosphere although I'd rather to hear more Greek music. (There were some Turkish and Middle Eastern songs being played that night!). Anyway the food was absolutely beautiful and I really enjoyed it. We all felt same that way. I'm not saying did they ought to serve us any dessert or complimentary drink because... More

Trio of dips to share set us off to a good start, fresh warm pita and well made dips. The rest of the meal was tasty and cooked well. The Waiters were friendly, knew the menu and didn't rush us at all . All round good experience if you like Greek food i would recommend giving this place a try.

My wife loves Greek food so when trying to figure out where to take her out for her birthday dinner. I looked up restaurants in tripadvisor and found this place quite highly rated so with no reservations we drove there and were lucky enough to get a table. The staff were very attentive, polite and actually quite friendly. My wife... More

Excellent food. Last minute idea on Valentine's day to check out Calypso's Taverna. I have been looking for another great Greek restaurant in north west Calgary since my favourite had closed. To my delight Calypso was able to squeeze me and my family in on short notice. My wife and I shared the appetizer platter (for two) plus a Greek... More

What a find! This friendly family run restaurant was just across the street from our B&B. The food was absolutely delicious, the belly dancer totally entertaining. The restaurant had a great atmosphere and you felt at home when you walked in thanks to the friendly and helpful staff.

We visited Calypso's based on its great reviews. The restaurant itself has a warm and comfortable feel. The staff made us feel welcome when we arrived and were helpful and attentive throughout the night. We started with some delicious spanakopita. The double lamb shank special I had was excellent. My companions had the seafood and the lamb souvlaki, and both... More

I have been here a few times and this is an excellent place to dine anytime. Not only was the service outstanding, the food is priced pretty fair which makes it all the better. I haven't been to any other greek restaurants in Calgary so I wouldn't have anything to compare them to. Our server was very helpful with the... More
