Visiting Blackburn? You have to go the Calypso. Caribbean food in a very friendly and relaxed environment. And the staff, from the owner who greeted us on arrival, to every single staff member we met were unbelievably friendly and helpful. We will be back!

My daughter and I tried calypso on a Thursday lunchtime. We both went for the lunchtime special. The jerk chicken leg was nice but the sides were just ok, the rice and peas were a let down, very wet and tasteless. Service was good.
