We've been here for lunch and dinner. Enjoyed the food, atmosphere, and drinks. Menu isn't large compared to some, but there isn't a bad choice. In the heart of Hanalei town, while there's parking in the rear, at mealtime parking can be difficult. We like to visit during slower times and enjoy the atmosphere. Great place to stop after a...

My wife and I were here in February. The atmosphere is great with live music and plenty of TVs with sports on. The staff was very friendly. My wife got the fish and chips and I had the fish tacos. It wasn't the best we had on Kauai but was still very good. We would come back the next time... More

Whilst my daughter, son and I have had some great food here over the years – it is a family tradition to dine here on the first night of our vacation every year because we love it so much – my husband has not yet found a dish to his taste (and I cook for him so he is really... More

A good stop in Hanalei a kicky bar atmosphere, with open air seating. We missed the happy hour so try to get there for that as it was a bit cheaper. We had a good BBQ burger which we split with french fries, and 2 Wailua beers, and one Mai-Tai. The service was good, and we liked that we stopped... More

I ate here with friends for lunch and liked the casual atmosphere, especially since we had just come from the beach. I had a Kauai Pina Collada which was delicious and so much better than the regular pina collada (they use Koloa Rums from Kauai and their own pineapple coconut mix). I ordered the Kalua pork quesadilla and it was... More

As someone else stated, the options in Hanalei are not numerous, so when you have one night out while the grandparents babysit, Kalypso is not a bad choice! We went for dinner and really wanted to sit outside, and somehow the hostess managed to get us an outdoor table within a few minutes. So the service was great in the... More

The options in Hanalei aren't numerous, but Kalypso was a decent little spot for lunch and drinks due to happy hour, which is late afternoon granted. The place was pretty full and was hard to get a seat and it is right on the main road through town. The food was very average but did feature decent drinks (mai tais... More
