Started off with their delicious Blue Point oysters. Well presented, with the sea brine intact in the shell. The Curry Lamb was tender and more mild than spicy. The Traditional Salad was quite large, easily feeding two people. However, the additional Cajun shrimp with the...More

It's a good restaurant. Good food and the staff treats you as if you are at home. The soups are very good and the conch is one of the best in town. I have only been their for lunch.

Calypso is one of the best restaurants I've ever had the pleasure of dining in. I used to go there regularly when I lived in Lbts. Now, every time I come back for a visit, calypso is first on my list. Excellent food. Excellent service.

Love to eat here with my team, it's one of those hidden restaurants where you are taken by surprise, about why you haven't been here before. If you want fresh seafood, give it a try. Reasonable and tasty.

They have fresh seafood selections daily that can be grilled, pair that up with a side of veggies and you should be golden.
