Restaurant is up an alleyway on the left, once inside its a very steep set of stairs to negotiate, A very welcoming place to eat, foods very very good, nice views in the evening with Lindos all lite up. Will return.

We ate here after experiencing a few of the other better rated restaurants and in my opinion, this was by far the best. The food was incredible - we were luck enough to be sitting with friends of the owners who shared their food with us, so we were able to get a really good sample of the menu. It... More

We orgianally intended to head to this place as it was recommended by lonely planet. We found it tucked away from the main tourist route and was pleasantly surprised to find it wasn't over crowded like some of the other rooftop restaurants. We had our 1 year old son with us and we were made to feel very welcome from... More

I'd already intended on having our evening meal at Kalypso, having enjoyed eating there many times over the years, but the waiting at the entrance helped making our decision easier as he was fun and light-hearted. Sometimes you can feel a little pressured when reading a wall-side menu but this isn't the case here. Although the pale-stoned courtyard is beautiful,... More

We chose Kalypso for our wedding reception venue and Kiki Rip & all the staff did a absolute fantastic job of making this a very special day for us. The setting up on the top terrace was great with the acropolis in the back drop was just amazing...... the food was all cooked to perfection and came out on time... More

Kalypso was without doubt the restaurant where we experienced the best service during our stay. A very friendly welcome indeed! There is a lot of communication going on between all of the staff here all of the time and it was quite amusing how they dropped/threw the paper with orders from the rooftop down to the kitchen - I don't...

Kiki and Rip are wonderful hosts, whatever you want, nothing is too much trouble. We have been going for years but even if it is your first visit you are treated as a friend. The food is delicious, they have had the same chef for many years, also Rip himself is a world class chef.

Having been to the Kalypso a number of times over the years it still holds the magic when you walk in to the restaurant. The welcome not just from Kiki and Alex (the owners) but the service from all of their staff is always above and beyond. The food was superb and has always been a high quality. It is... More
