I enjoy the open-air atmosphere at Kalypso's the food is really good and the cocktails are nice at for Pau Hana. I recommend Kalypso's for lunch or dinner, and breakfast too on Saturdays and Sundays ;)

Had the poke and calamari lettuce wraps. Weird but it works. GREAT calamari. Wife had the fish sandwich. Mahi. Also very good. Good beer selection. Service was good. Would repeat and recommend. If only for the lettuce wrap.

Place was nice, but the food was not. Drinks were watered down. Overpriced for what you get. Atmosphere and service was good.

This is a place not on the water or near the beach, in fact it is at the busy intersection in Hanalei, but I ate there twice in one week and would go back in a heartbeat. Forget the traffic and chickens on the floor, and just enjoy the local beers and deep fried artichoke hearts.

Kalypso has a nice patio and good service, we had a burger and fries along with fish and chips. The fish and chips were almost too small for one person, the burger, however, was huge. The food itself was enjoyable, but overpriced.

Kalypso is a restaurant in the middle of Hanalei. loved their Nachos - a full meal, not just an appetizer. We go to Kalypso every time we are on Kauai. Parking in the rear.

My friend and I went there on a recommendation on July 16th. We decided to have lunch there. Im giving them a four rating because the hostess that 'greeted' us was extremely rude and acted like she was put out having to seat us. The waitress made up for it. She was super sweet. We ordered Coconut Shrimp, potato skins... More

After eating breakfast at the cottage for days, we decided to eat out at Kalypso. My husband had the crab omelet which he loved. I started with the tropical mimosa & the mahimahi huevo rancheros. Needless to say we enjoyed our breakfast
