The cracked conch was as good as my best memory of it in Turks and Caicos.It was tender with the right amount of coating ..and was crisp and golden. I've had better sauces than the one it 's served with but it was acceptable. The potato salad was not inspiring but the cole slaw was tasty as was the side salad that accompanies all entrees.Although I chose those sides but the kitchen should have done more in terms of presentation. When the fish, potato salad and coleslaw shared the same platter it did not excite the eye. Presentation was not a strong point except when it came to the gardern salad. The sesame ginger dressing was accomplished and perfect for the crisp, fresh garden salad.
I chose the Cobia (fish) which was marinated in citrus and grilled perfectly. It tasted as though it had just been delivered- fresh!
The party ended when the dessert arrived. If the rest of the desserts are anything like the $5.95 sliver of key lime pie I had, you'd do better to stop at Houston's.
Calypso's seems like a fish lover's retreat. I'd never trust another dessert. The crust was uninspiring and the filling tasted like it came directly from the recipe on the Eagle milk can. Tragic.They should partner with someone who excels at dessert or drop them altogether..
I would trust Calypso to do more for me and I intend to give them a chance. Overall I think the other reviews are fair. My meal for conch, an entree, a glass of wine and pie came to $56.00 which given the overall performance and location I believe is overpriced. . I believe that with careful planning one can pare the price down better than I did.
The service was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and staff looked as though they like each other and that bodes well for the management.
