It was our last day in Florida, and we lucked out on Calypso's last day before their pre-season vacation. A local shopkeeper recommended this family restaurant to us, and we thank him profusely. Great Caribbean seafood specialties, very popular with locals.

If you love Caribbean fare, this is the place for you! Family owned, super nice people. They make a great Chicken Roti with real roti shells--not tortillas! Fantastic seafood dishes. They're closed weekends!

The best Caribbean food around! An unassuming little restaurant in a strip mall off the beaten path, family owned and serving fresh seafood and caribbean dishes that will melt in your mouth. No reservations and closed on weekends, but awesome food! Don't expect romantic settings as the tables and chairs are very basic as is the bar, just come with... More

Food, fish is fresh daily and well cooked. A bit Jamaican taste and local fish. Here's the catch - they are only opened Mon. - Fri. and closed Sept. so carefully schedule your visit. Our dinners have been delicious, waiters pleasant and fun. Small place, mostly locales.

Great Sandwiches, Caribbean Seafood Platters, Beer and lots more. These owners take a lot of pride in the way they take care of the customers and the food they serve. I bring family and friends here whenever they visit and never disappointed.
