Recently visited calypso with a group of friends for my sisters birthday. It was midweek so the restaurant was pretty empty other than us but nevertheless the food was incredible. Catered for all needs - great veggie choices. Genuinely the best seasoned prawns that I have ever eaten in the uk. Unfortunately I'm not local or I would be there... More

What a treat the food is at Calypso . I've tasted Jamaican fare in many places around the world and Calypsos is up there with the best of them. The atmosphere is also great and turned into a party later in the night after we had eaten.. A great place to eat and party

The service was done by an ignorant and disrespectful member of staff, obviously never heard of service with a smile. Also to make the experience worse the diversity of drinks is embarrassing. Would not recommend to anyone who is planning a fun and family friendly meal out!!! Hugely disappointed.
