Best food around Food & coctails to die for. Nothing to much for waiters & Bar Staff. Well worth a visit 100 times better than Turtle Bay We went last week not impressed one bit after going the Calypso. Keep up the good work chef

I don't normally leave reviews but felt that I needed too for the Calypso having visited on the 10th February 2017. As somebody that cooks a lot at home, I'm many a time left disappointed when dining out, often to be left feeling, that I've just paid a lot of money for something that I could have cooked better myself....

I had some friends over from Cape town and I wanted to take them for a good meal in a place that had character and atmosphere. My friends own a restaurant in Cape town and they are very critical of the food they eat in other restaurants. As we walked into the Calypso we were greeted and made to feel... More

I took my wife and 2 daughters to the Calypso last night. It's probably our 7th visit. The food was 1st class as usual. The owners and staff cannot do enough for you throughout the night. Again we were invited to sit with Dave the owner and some friends of his. Everyone was lovely and we had a great evening.... More

Visited here early On a Friday evening. On entering it was a pub atmosphere with a few of the locals enjoying drinks which was surprising. The Restaurant is further through the building which is quite small and was very cold, feeling a draught coming through the windows overlooking the canal. I suppose once it gets busy it would hopefully get... More
