Grilled octopus and a big salad which they split into two plates was a perfect lunch. Very pleasant to sit outside under the sun sails and look at the water

During nicer times of this year, this can be a great venue. My experience with both the food and service has always been good and the view of the lake (which is one of the reasons I like this place) is so cheerful.

Went there with friends (no reservation). We asked for a high top table outside and got one within 30 seconds. The beer was cold, the food was great, our waiter was great, the only thing missing, was a friendly smiling hostess (for the type of experience that I expected, I would have given them 5 stars, if it wasn't for...

Great value for money. When the weather is nice, sit outside on the patio overlooking Lake Anne. Chicken Souvlaki platter is $10.95 and is served with a side salad and fries. Shrimp entree is 6 shrimp marinated in olive oil, lemon and herbs on a bed of rice, asparagus and a side salad for $14.95. Save big with the buy... More

horrible service - asked for vinegar for my salad and the server returns 1 hour later asking if the vinegar is still needed. No silverware on table. Bronzini was ordered boneless. full of bones (food runner tries to debone and only guaranteed 70 % removal). (this should have been on the house, instead guest pays $10 for rice and green... More

Wonderful spot for relaxation and a great meal. Eat outdoors while enjoying a view of Lake Ann and activity in the plaza! I was expecting "pub grub" and instead had a lovely piece of fish and a delightful salad. Great change of pace from the Town Center.

The restaurant is dark inside and not that appealing. However when weather is nice the outside seating by the lake is wonderful. The food is fairly good and interesting choices.

Eh! Says it all. Noisy. Food average. Bad presentation. Bad service. Snooty waitress. She spilled fish stew on table. Laughed it off. Didn't try to rectify it or get another fish. Very disappointed. Don't order Kalypso grilled shrimp. Ordinary shrimp. No taste served with too much rice.

Having family who live at Lake Anne we have been to Kalypso's several times and not been particularly impressed. We returned this past Saturday only because one of our party of 5 had expressed a desire to try it. Since we were under the impression it had changed management we hoped for an improvement. No such luck. We found the... More

This restaurant has changed names several times and fortunately, it's been Kalypso's for a while now. It's hidden in the Lake Anne Plaza which is an older place. As such, it doesn't get the foot traffic that newer places get. Which...allows you to get a good seat on a Friday or Saturday night without having to wait 90 minutes. You... More
