Great service. Good margarita drink with the jalapeńo infused tequila. The staff is friendly and provide great service. We didn't travel with kids so sit by the bar. Is a must here is Hanalei.

This is the second time that I have traveled to Cancun where I return to Calypso's for their margarita. SO DELISH! The owners are there everyday and are super friendly. Their tacos are amazing and their grilled calamari was fantastic. We returned here several times to eat and drink. Highly recommend!

Felipe was super nice and the food was great. If you like fish, he has lots of options and if you don't, the Mexican food is delicious and very authentic. He gave us a discount and it was a fun environment.

Nothing great here, food was decent. I had the lobster and shrimp with garlic grilled, it was eatable but not what I expect for this kind of food. The people were ok and nice, but the one thing I really hate is when they put the tip they decide on the bill. The tip is something for the client to... More

Tired of the buffets at the resort so we decided to find a restaurant for dinner. A block away from the Riu Cancun we found Calypso. A relaxed place with great food and a jovial host, Felipe. The lobsters were great! Had a great time, we will definitely be back next in Cancun. Thanks FF for an enjoyable evening! FYI,... More

We found this place for lunch when visiting Playa Caracol. The hostess (probably owner Felipe's wife?) had a fall coming down the stairs and our food fell on the ground.
