This place closes in the summer and re-opens in October. We chose it based on TA reviews. The menu is a blend of seafood based Caribbean style food. The Shrimp you could tell was WILD CAUGHT and very good. Husband had the Lamb and said it was just ok, nothing to write home about. I also had a Jerk Chicken... More

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
